Summer Begins

The summer boating season is now here.  We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at Holiday Harbor Marina and Sunset Grille.  We have all your needs for enjoying days on the water.  We carry Costa Del Mar Sunglasses and Sun Bum sunscreen for protection from the sun.  Our two stores also have marine supplies to stay safe on the water, beverages and snacks for the family, bait and tackle for your fishing needs, and apparel to stay stylish while on the water.

 Please have a safe and enjoyable summer, and let us know if we can help make it so.

Account Customer Red Snapper Tournament

Holiday Harbor Marina is hosting a “Show Us Your Sow” red snapper tournament exclusively for its account customers.  The tournament will run from June 11 through July 25, the length of the recreational red snapper season for Florida.  Registration is $50 per boat, which includes a tournament t-shirt and other gimme items.  The top three single red snappers weighing the most caught during the period will split all registration fees 50%, 30% and 20% (minimum total of $1,000), and receive other substantial prizes provided by the marina (Costa sunglasses or fishing gear).  In addition, winners of the Wildcard Weight and SSG Reservation for Two categories will receive Sunset Grille gift certificates and other prizes.

Bait and Tackle

Both of our stores have frozen cigar minnows, squid and shrimp available.  In addition,  both stores carry leaders, weights, hooks and lures for snapper fishing.  Come by for the best in bait and tackle for your fishing needs.

Bragging Board

If you want to show off your catch, customers can deliver or email pictures of their catch brought in to the marina and we will post the pictures on our bragging board for all to see.


4th of July Planning

This year the 4th of July falls on Saturday.  The 10 day period June 26 through July 5 will be one of the busiest times of the year at Holiday Harbor.  In order to help assure everyone has an enjoyable boating experience, we ask that dry storage customers:

  1. Call at least 2 hours before you want your boat placed in the water.
  2. Recognize that there is not enough dock space at the marina for all launched boats to stay in the water for the week. Therefore, boats returned before closing will be returned to dry storage daily and boats returned after closing will be returned to dry storage early the next morning. 
  3. Know that all wet slips are rented. Therefore, do not dock in wet slips.  If you return after closing and the launch area is full, please use the fuel dock or the “T” dock used for docking at Sunset Grille.  We will move your boat early the next morning.

We appreciate customers’ help in making the holiday week a great time for all.
