    One of my favorite overnight stops! I just love this place. It's lively, yet peaceful, and in a great location. A 5 minute walk to the beach, and quick walk to lovely shops, and an AMAZING restaurant on site. We just love it!

    Great stop. Staff incredibly helpful. Helped us get tied up with no issue and helped us untie the next morning. We don't usually ask for help leaving but the tide was way out and was going to make for a dicey leap back onto the boat for me. Or retying all lines back to boat. Quick easy walk to beach. Fabulous body surfing. I walked into town Saturday morning for wonderful farmer's market and trip to the post office. After body surfing we took dinghy to little island and walked around a bit. Downtown Venice is beautiful and we would have enjoyed staying but were on our way to Cayo Costa.

    Crow’s Nest is always an awesome stop over from the Gulf or ICW. Staff very helpful with docking and helping you understand how the current affects docking. Just as we were getting to leave good blow came up, we waiting a few minutes, then they came back and helped us out. I like to be independent but geez use the help or you are going to kiss that seawall

    Great marina. Laundry, showers, restrooms very clean. Two places to eat, upstairs $$, downstairs $. Excellent food both places. Very short walk to South Jetty and Venice Beach. Marina staff excellent.

    Busy marina. Diesel and gas available. Aaron the dock hand is excellent. Tides can be strong so be sure to use the posts and not the cleats provided. Great place to watch boats go by while you're at the restaurant or onboard. Long transient dock. Laundry. Groceries are a 2 mile courtesy bicycle ride away. Wifi terrible even in boaters lounge and nonexistent at your boat.

    Very popular and crowded Marina year round. Restaurant is very good. Beware of swift tidal currents and shallow water in ICW. Stay in channel and you are OK. Great place to come in from Gulf, deep inlet, shallow ICW.
