    Carly, Mark, and Eli.. best dockmaster and crew in the business. Safety 1st - they listen to the captain and know what to do and when. Service 2nd, always happy to help in any way. Deliver packages to the boat with a smile and pretty much anything else you might need whether you have thought of it or not.

    The team here are great - Carley the dockmaster is ON IT - and her team is great - they've become like a mini family - they deliver our packages, we feel safe, there's typically ample parking and who doesn't love a seafood restaurant (Pincher's) that has Happy Hour BOGO every day of the week! They do have a pump-out - they'll come to your boat and pump it out for $20. The grocery store, Publix, is about a 1/2 mile away so it's been working well. We're happy visitors~!

    Every time we come back to the Marina at Edison Ford it is like coming home. Harbormaster Carley makes sure we have everything we need and Deckhands Elijiah and Marc are ready to catch lines and assist with hookups. With Publix an easy 1/4 mile walk and Pinchers Restaurant on-site you have all that you need right at this "Old Florida" style marina. BUT, downtown Ft. Myers and all of its activities are a little over a mile away so a good walk or Uber can get you into the heart of Ft Myers very quickly and the Edison Ford Winter Estate is right next door for daily tours. They have also recently added a boaters lounge which has great wifi with a TV and space for different events. The bathrooms/showers are clean as it gets and the Simple laundry room has one washer/dryer setup. All-in-all one of our favorite Florida Marinas.

    One of the best places we have found. I can confirm the other reviews. Publix Grocery is a long two blocks but worth it. The restaurant is fantastic and reasonable. Be sure to spend a full day at The Edison Ford Winter Retreat that adjoins the marina. Larger sailboats and large single engine vessels may find it tight maneuvering the “U” turn type entrance.

    What a great marina. It is a small marina which makes it special as the staff is very attentive to the boater's needs. Carley and Mark are the best. They provided great local knowledge and were there when we needed any assistance. Very well kept and maintain facility with excellent westerly views for the sunsets. There is also a Pinchers restaurant on site. We stayed there a week at a very reasonable price. A must stop.

    Punchers Restaurant on site is terrific. Fresh seafood and fresh local vegetables. Excellent menu and service. Long walk from town but doable.
