    I just love this place! It's a "Bubba Gump" place to spend your time. It is the only place on the ICW that I've stayed where the souvenir tee shirt cost more than the mooring. Cheap fuel, great commercial marine store, and amazing seafood. It's no five star resort, its a working shrimp dock and that is part of it's charm. It is always one of my planned stops, both north bound and southbound. There is a decent current that runs, so it helps to get yourself situated and use the current instead of having the current use you! I single hand with my dog, who is useless as a line handler, so it did take me two attempts to get my boat tied up, but to paint was harmed in the attempts.

    Fixed docks with 15 amp power. $.40 per foot, very reasonable. Outhouses only. Good flash frozen seafood selection and commercial style chandlery. Nice people, a really fun lowland stop! Only two bars of cell coverage on Verizon. Don’t miss this even for just a day stop!

    Best stop to stock up on crazy fresh seafood on the ICW. Should be on everyone’s list on the way by. Great people, shrimp and fish just off the boat, really a cool place to check out a working fish store. Don’t miss it! Certainly not a destination marina for an overnight, but gives you a safe tie up and a great price if you need it.

    The marina is a working shrimp dock and the facilities are raw. The dock is substantial but you have to be careful in stepping due to stuff on the docks. The attraction is the low price of $0.40/ft and the great protection from wind and waves (you won't notice any at the docks). There is only one 30A outlet and if any more boats tried to use the 20A with a converter, then no one has electricity. They have a great marine supply store and a large selection of flash frozen seafood (shrimp, scallops, and flounder). There are no baths or restrooms unless you count the two outhouses gaily decorated out front.

    We use the stop because it's convenient, cheap, protected, and a good place to stock up on seafood for your freezer.

    This is a commercial fish dock. The price is right. If you are making 7 knots and hit this spot at 5 pm, you are aware that there are not a lot of choices and are glad this dock has space.

    If it it blowing 55, you won't notice ( at least I didn't) - very protected.

    Folks are very friendly. The store is sort of cross between New Bedford Ship Supply and West Marine without the bathing suits. Then there is the fish.

    Drawbacks: This is a commercial wharf. Forget the electricity. Outlets dead or had bad ground. No heads. No Wifi, no Verizon service, no AT&T service
