    MM 354.5 Formerly Free Docks at Barefoot Landing

    by grandmaR Updated Oct 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Because of the mall, this has been called the most expensive free dock on the ICW There is 500 or so feet of dock, and boats tie and then raft onto each other. When we were there, there were at least 36 boats there (mostly monohull sailboats), rafted to the maximum of 4 in a lot of places.

    There were no electrical connections, and no other services (such as bathrooms, showers or phone or TV hookups). There may have been wi-fi.

    I understand that the docks on the 'Shopping Mall' side (East side of ICW) have been mostly rebuilt, and now have 30A power and water. They are charging $1.25/ft to overnight (short-term daily use is still free). Cable TV not yet hooked-up. No close restrooms, and no showers at all.

    The Dockmaster is only there from around 9-5, so arriving late/leaving early *might* still be free.....

    Equipment: Have good fenders, and lines to attach to the other boats or the dock.

    MM 348.2 Marina at Dock Holidays

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stayed here on our first trip. At that time, the marina told us that the ICW would be closed south of them due to high steel work on a new bridge.

    We had free cable TV, but our cable was too short to reach. We walked up toward one of the 5 restaurants that are here (Hooters, and a raw bar are two of them), and ate dinner in one of them. Bob then set out to walk to West Marine and I went back to the boat. He tried to buy a longer TV cable, but they only had a 20 foot one and no connector. Without it there's very poor reception - very snowy.

    They advertise a restaurant but I have never have been as it went out of business before our first trip.

    The second time we went on the way back in 2002, the charges were 95 cents/ft, $5 electric and $2.50 for cable and $2.20 tax. . You can download e-mail if you bring your laptop in to the marina office.

    When we came through in 2003, we stayed here again. In the photo, our mast is the fartherest one down. This time there was a very nice restaurant open on the property.

    Equipment: From their website:
    New floating docks
    30 & 50 amp shore power
    Fresh, clean showers & bathrooms
    102-40' & 50' full-finger slips
    Laundry facilities
    Cable TV, telephone, fax & photocopy service
    Fuel dock with gas, diesel, oil, ice
    Ship store
    Easy ocean access
    Beer, ice soda, bait
