Chris' Bait & Tackle

The bait & tackle shop, the gas docks, the restaurant, and the charter-boat captains are located all the way down by Tavernier Creek at the far east end of the property.

We have 21 wet slips that are available to our storage customers on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are going to use your boat a few days in a row, you can simply pull into any unreserved slip.

Work racks are available for our customers’ use to wash their boats, flush engines, and to do minor repair work.  Customers can bring in outside mechanics to work on their boats, but the mechanic must provide proof of insurance to the Marina Office and follow Clean Marina standards.

We also provide trailer storage and have a limited number of walk-in storage lockers.


Hours of Operation:

We are open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, seven days a week. We close for lunch between 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm, year-round.

To insure that your boat is ready and waiting for you when you arrive, we ask that you call us one hour prior to your arrival.Please call by 11:30 am for a pre-lunch launch.

With the exception of Barn 5 boats, customers who wish to use their boat during nonoperational hours should request a late launch by 4:00 PM.

Barn 5 customers who wish to have their boats placed in the water should call one day in advance. This will allow us ample time to prepare your boat.

Wet-slip customers may access their boat anytime.

Wet slips are available on a first-come, first-served basis free of charge to our storage customers.  If you want to reserve one, the rate will be $25 per night.

We are closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day; however, just call the day before, and we will put your boat in the water at the end of the day, so you can still use your boat on these holidays.
