    Good hold on the dolphin on the east side of port mayaca lock. Noisy traffic during day. Exposed to wind but hold with 2 lines at stern or bow and one at the opposite it's a good hold

    We stayed at this anchor spot near the northeast side of the inlet in 8-10 feet of water. 6 inch tide at this spot but a good current. Only anchor here on a low wind day as it is exposed in all directions. It is a short dingy ride to the basin to the north side of the inlet, just after the causeway, for snorkeling and swimming. It is a State Park for Sebastian. Visibility for snorkeling is fair. Beach is excellent and not crowded. Great for a picnic and dog run. Park the dingy on the sand beach prior to the "lagoon". Lots of fishermen and small boats.

    Excellent marina to stay or leave your boat. Laundry, restrooms, attentive staff. Close to the Village of Cocoa. Tight turn around in the slips but lots of help to get you in. Do not go in without assistance if you are more than a runabout. Waves from passing inconsiderate boaters can be a problem so leave the lines tight for waves, not tide.

    We stayed here for 2 nights. If the winds are from the west or northwest this anchorage will be rocky. Stop in the 6-8 foot water depth on the west side of gull island for some wave protection if a blow comes from the north or east. It has a great access to the lock for staging for Bahamas as well as a prefect vantage point for a liftoff from the launch sites. We took the dingy to Island Time Marina on Banana River for a 3 block walk to the touristy area of Cocoa Beach.

    Excellent anchorage in 10 feet of water. Low or high tide wasn't a problem in March 2017. Current is not that strong. Your boat anchor should have no problem with the 1 knts. We spent 2 nights on the hook. We took the dingy up past the Harbortown Marina on the small river to an embankment that is directly behind Publix. It You can also stop at the marina for a ride or a 5 block walk or stop on the little river where the small beach is and walk 2-3 blocks. We went to the Manatee research center beside the Fort Pierce Marina by dingy. We also went to the Naval and Navy Seal Museum by dingy. The docks to the public access are being rebuilt as of Mar 2017 and a short dock are coming. We tied to a drain culvert at the number 3 Pier in the Wildcat Cove Park. The museum boasts the actual lifeboat of the captured Captain Philips that the movie with Tom Hanks was made off of. Worth the trip.

    Excellent resort facility. Marriott offers boaters transients slips (2017 in season $3.00/ft, $2.50 off season), diesel, gas, 3 pools, laundry, restrooms, showers all locked by 10 PM. A short dingy ride to the beach access on Indian River offers a "bathtub" where coral surrounds an area which is great for swimming, snorkeling in 2-6 feet, and a day at the beach. Access is through a public access dock to the southeast of the marina.

    Stayed here 2 nights in March 2017. Excellent anchorage with 9+ depth. Room for 10-15 boats. There were 9 when we anchored and room for many more. Close dingy ride to beach to swim, boogie board or explore. Not great protection during the day for passing boats. Quiet at night and early morning. Waves can pick up a bit if coming from the north.

    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.

    The anchorage is mostly rock. However, the most difficult is the getting into the anchorage. There are rocks on both side that jut out so that you must do a zigzag style of getting in. Shallow rock isn't apparent at all times depending on depth and waves. Not recommended unless you are assured of the meandering you will have todo to get in.

    Stopped in for the novelty that is Henry's. Large and small boats come here to overnight or just stop in for lunch. Food is okay, not spectacular, It's more about the novelty. Boats and Fly and Dine folks stop here just to say they've been here.

    Excellent place for provisions. Beer, grocery, restrooms. On the wall was exceptional and met several boaters. The only downfall was the price of laundry. Save it for another spot. At the time it was $6.00 per load.

    Everything has closed up here with only a reservation only restaurant available. Not worth the stop unless you have to because of time or weather or you really just want to hang out on your own. The town charges to bring your dingy to shore. I recall $10.00 but town only offers a quick walk about. No provisions remotely close by.

    Other than the constant rolling rock from the high speed ferries that run it is an excellent marina. Walking distance to everything that Mackinaw Island has to offer.

    Great location. Good service. The only problem is that as a transient speaking with the harbor house is that the marina is run by college students who don't really know what a boater needs. We were assigned a slip that was at least a foot too narrow and also noticed that the edge of the dock had metal sticking out. They allowed us a spot on a reserved dock eventually. Even with that issue the marina is excellent for security, facilities and just adjacent to many major attractions.
