We offer two boat care services that may be of interest during the off-season:

  • Detailing – The off-season is a great time to get your boat looking like new. Our in-house detailing service can provide anything from a simple wash to complete detailing, including compounding, waxing, buffing and metal polishing.


  • Run and Wash Service – If your boat will be sitting over the off-season, we offer a service that includes pulling the boat down from storage on a monthly basis, putting it in the water, starting and letting it run to get to up to temperature, pulling it out of the water and giving it a wash inside and outside before returning it to storage.  This helps with maintaining batteries and keeps the engine from sitting all winter long, as well as maintaining the appearance of your boat.


If you are interested in either of these services, please contact the marina at 850-492-0555, or stop by in person.

Arrived mid December so it was very open. They had us dock at the restaurant dock for the night. Restaurant is basic but the food and service was good. New docks.
