Vero Beach Municipal Marian Gets a Five Star Rating

We've just returned from 50 days of cruising Florida, including the Okeechobee. Now that we are home again in Savannah, Georgia, I thought I would rate our marina experiences. By far the most pleasant was Vero Beach City Marina for a multitude of reasons.

First of all the marina is off in its own little snug harbor, close to the ICW but protected from constant waking that is so frequent in other anchorages and moorings. Second, the price is right $13.90 + tax for a mooring ball. This includes all the usual amenities, shower, lounge, and laundry. Vero Beach City Marina has one other real plus for live aboards--the free city wide shuttle. The bus 2 passengers up in front of the lounge every 45 minutes and follows a route that includes a Pulix Super Market and West Marine. If one prefers, a change of bus at the transportation center will allow a visit to Wal-mart or the shopping center. Again--this is free. The bus also has a stop at the dingy dock, so no long hauling of provisions is necessary.

The captain reminds me that the fuel dock is an easy straight in approach. That's a big plus at the end of a long day. No zig-zagging to get to fuel.

Finally, but not necessarily least, the staff is incredibly polite and friendly. If we ever decide to spend the winter in a marina, Vero Beach would be the my pick.

They do raft 3 to a mooring ball. That can be a lot of fun, or a giant pain in the arse. Roll the dice...
