We stopped for a one night stay traveling south. Manager Dave was on the dock to greet us and take our lines. The Marina is small but everything is clean . Plenty of AC power stands and a pump out capability. Dave is big on customer service and offered to drive us up the substantial hill for groceries. They do not offer fuel ( G or D),,, so beware of that. I would definitely stop here again.
A great complement to my 9” touch screen Garmin! Makes data transfer easy and allows me to access charts from my iPhone. Connection is solid and quick, works every time. What a nice bonus for free. Thank you, Garmin.
Great Anchorage in any wind other than northerly! Best spot is one mile west of jetty in 10-15 feet of water.
My app updated today and somehow I lost map features. Hopefully this was a mistake that can be fixed. I have Gulf of Mexico charts on my boat system and oil and gas lease block names and numbers which is a very important feature in navigation and fishing. Today’s update took them off of then “fishing” chart. Why???
Enjoy having everything in the palm of my hand needed for the unit. Sharing info has never been easier. Great APP
Had the older phone app before ActiveCaptain. Transition was easy. But easier and better to use is the ActiveCaptain which communicates with GPS. Very happy to have it on my phone.
This has made life so much easier. Since I got this app have not had to call the support center once. Can find all my answers right here. It’s a real time saver. I recommend anyone who has a garmin marine device to download this app and learn how to use it.
App crashing on loading. Won’t open. Was helpful for updates and planing prior to this issue
