STA is our homeport. The city marina usually won't take long term stay requests this early but you can try. The northers that roll in during the winter can make even the city marina slips and marker 8 slips a bit bumpy but its not too bad. The mooring field is a great alternative if you are able to run your heat for Jan/Feb.
Conch house is nice but its a bit far from down town being on Anastasia Island. Its also fairly exposed to winds so when its blowing you can get a little crazy in the head
aftre 3 weeks of 20 knot
Camachee Cove is great - if you can get in - they usually have a long wait list. Its also further out of town.
Going up the San Sabastian you have:
Creek Marina, which has some wall dockage but isn't really a live aboard facility. More of a dry-stack facility.
- Saint Augustine Marine
Center which has slips but no pump
- Then you have Oasis which is impossible to get in and has no pump
- St. Augustine Shipyard, which is really a dry stack right now.
Landing, which is hard to get into but has great access to restaurants, west marine
, and grocery stores. They have onsite food
trucks which is awesome. Good luck getting in!
- Rivers Edge - no in slip pump out but they DO have a pump out you can pull the boat
into. Ok restaurant with live music
and access to the same places as English
-San Sabastian Marina is closest to downtown except the city marina. Very few slips and mostly long-term live-aboards. Not really a marina per se... no dockhands of anything.
- Hidden Harbor should be opening back up in a year. That was our homebase ($500 a month for slip right in the middle of town!) until it was bought and they put in a Hilton. No doubt the price
will then become $5000 a month.
So there you have it...
