Take a look at Harborage Marina | Tampa Bay Marinas | Marina St. Petersburg | 727 821-6347 in St. Pete. It's a nice location and does permit live-aboards. Brian ("CruisingDad") and his family were there for awhile.

FWIW...

Re: Tampa liveaboard marinas

I doubt you will have much luck on the phone. You really need to show up in person and give a professional appearance for many marinas to offer a live aboard slip. Just using the term liveboard can turn some off. With the number of run down boats you cant really claim them.

Yep, and take a picture of your boat with you along with proof of insurance, USCG documentation, whatever...

Good advice. When I got my liveaboard slip in Miami, the harbormaster pretty much told me that he told anyone who called on the phone that they didn't allow it, but that if someone came up who looked okay, he would agree to it.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Re: Tampa liveaboard marinas

just read your blog says your in St.Augustine.
but I Googled the Marina you said you stopped at briefly and noticed your wife commented on the marina on the 15th.
So,I'm thinking your either delaying your location reporting so your clear of the area when your trashing the services and people in your wake.
Am I wrong?

Re: Tampa liveaboard marinas

read Dana's review of hidden harbor on yelp.
incidentally.
was thinking if you were passing through Daytona I'd like to see your boat. but I'm guessing your long gone.

Re: Tampa liveaboard marinas

if your planning on passing through Daytona or Ponce inlet area give me a shout if you would like a ride to the store or a heads up on anchorage or dingy landings in the area. always interested in meeting cruisers.
I'll extend this invitation to any other sailors passing by as well.
I'm gonna be at the house in Daytona for a few more months. So if anybody is passing by and wants a ride to aldi's or something I'd be willing to help.I know how it is traveling.

Re: Tampa liveaboard marinas

The Harborage in St Petes is pretty nice. Fairly well protected from hurricanes. Walk into downtown St Petes.

Regatta Pointe in Palmetto has a permit from the state to allow livaboards. Nice folks running the place. A bit cheaper than Harborage. Palmetto isn't much but the town right across the bridge is very nice.
