    Nice friendly, helpful staff ( only 1 on duty when I arrived mid day). Well protected ( until some idiot in a large go-fast came roaring thru with big wake.) Docks including fuel dock in need of repair. Fixed concrete and wood. Docks are showing their age and vintage. Good Valvetec fuel price. Hourly shuttle to town. They were having electrical problems. Office & fuel dock briefly lost power as I entered. I had low 105v from pedestal...battery charger kept kicking off. Fired up my gen...all good w/120v. Definitely their problem...first issue with power in 40+ Marinas in last 2200 miles of ICW. I would stay again assuming they fix electrical.

    This is our second stay in this city marina. Yuppers, it's a "city marina." Now that is not to say it is bad, quite the contrary, very friendly and helpful folks, good slips and a great town to visit. The showers, on the other hand leave a little to be desired. Great laundry and pretty grounds. If we do the loop a third time, we will stay here again.

      Marina Repy:

      We have a total of 13 showers. We just awarded a $114,600 contract to re-model the oldest restrooms which will replace six showers. Last week we were at 172% occupancy on our 57 moorings (rafting) so as you can imagine we have scores of customers using them every day. We will continue trying to keep up.

      Thanks for the feedback,

    Good staff matters. Last year I gave this place 5 stars, this year I can't give then more than 2 stars. They must have hired some new inexperienced folks. As a single handed sailor, help while docking is the most important marina factor to me, and they failed miserably.

    Very accommodating, nice mooring field, has the "moderm" tray type that holds the line out of the water, although ours still had some dried out barnacles. Warning: they no longer accept power boats over 50'. Made an exception for us as they were no where near full. Moorings over near trees on barrier island still had 10' at our stern which was only about 25' off the trees. There are very few anchorages with safe depths Palm Bay to fort pierce

      Clarify "modem" tray.

    A well run, nice facility. Appears to stay near full with a mix of resident boats, long term visitors and short term transients.
    A very convenient city bus stops right at the marina.

    Vero Beach is also known as VELCRO BEACH. Ask any cruiser, everybody comes back. The mooring field is great, no wake from ICW and behind tall trees to reduce wind. Dinghy dock is well organized and you can dinghy to the Vero Beach Power Squadron. Great shuttle bus service to stores and long walk or short bicycle ride to ocean beach.
