Great bike stop, people watching

As many have said before me, this is not much of a park but really a nice little marina that has a good launch site for kayaks and personal watercraft as well as small boats. The... read more

We stop there for fuel and bait when boating. You can fish from the pier there also. People in the ships store are very friendly. They got my son sme extra big live shrimp for his bait. I took delivery of my new boat there. Generally a nice and friendly place with a nice view to the Gulf.

We have fished here a few times from shore, expect to catch a few cat fish and small snappers. Watch out for the pelicans, they will catch your fish! What's up with the staff at the bait shop? Very unusual and scary personality!

My husband and I just returned from our stay on Marco. We rented bikes for the week and rode to "our marina" ever day to watch the dolphins and jet skis go out. It is were we met Avi, our jet ski guide who was amazing. This little tucked away gem is a perfect place to take a moment to... More

This is a pretty nice place to launch your boat, or stop at while boating. There is ample parking for your truck/trailer, and ample docking for your boat. There is a little store (with bathrooms) for basic needs, and you can even fish at certain places along the sea wall.

The views of the blue/green water are fantastic. Small area but nice. Next time I will try to come by boat.

The park is not huge by all means but it is a nice place to visit and see great things in the bay, such as, Dolphins and Sting Rays. We went there to rent Jet Skis and had a great experience and time.

We were in the area checking it out for future retirement and needed a bathroom stop and some place to see the water. Finding a public beach access on Marco is hard if you are a first time visitor! Anyhow the restrooms could use some tidying up but it's a marina so that could explain it! Behind the office there's... More

Small harbor front with a bait and tackle store right by the water. Limited parking and limited seating but worth visiting just to get close to the pelicans who sit on the docks waiting for some fish morsels
