On my way south to Florida
this fall, we left our 36 foot boat at Baypoint Marina for the month of November while we returned home. Very friendly place and was fast out to the Gulf. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Restricted access to the Baypoint Resort gave me a better feeling about security
. We had access to the full range of facilities but didn't need them. Fuel dock
was very clean and there are some amenities nearby. Close to West Marine
and Publix, so for a cruiser, it was a good spot, but not within walking distance. Car rentals available at the hotel
and we rented and returned our car there. After returning the car, we were shuttled back to the marina by golf cart. That was nice for us and if you were there permanently, you could get shuttled to the hotel
or other on-site restaurants. A nice touch for transients was a daily paper delivered to the slip while we were there. My wife liked that a lot.
No boatyard, but did see mechanics and electronics
work being performed on nearby boats, so work not requiring haul out
was being done there. If you had to haul out
, I don't know where you would go for that if you were there permanently.
