Boat Dockage

Bud n’ Mary’s Fishing Marina has a limited amount of transient (short term) boat dockage. We have direct ocean access for boats with a maximum of a 4.5 foot draft and up to 45′ in length. Our channel is fairly narrow, with a rock jetty on the north east side of it, and a “flat” on the southwest side of the channel. You need to pay very close attention when navigating the channel because there is hard bottom on both sides! There is also direct access to the Florida Bay by way of Tea Table Relief bridge for skiffs, small center counsels, and bay boats. There’s an average clearance of 6′ – 8′ under the bridge, but on extreme high tides there is 5.5′ of clearance under the bridge. Less than 2 miles south is Indian Key Bridge which has over 20′ of clearance.

Our short term in-water rates run $5.00 per foot, per night for boats under 30 ft and $6.00 per foot per night for boats over 30 ft. Price includes water.  There is a $1.00 per foot per night discount if you are staying in our accommodations as well.

Limitations

We do not have a boat ramp on site at Bud n’ Mary’s Fishing Marina, however there is a boat ramp at Indian Key Fill located approximately 1 mile south.

There is no trailer storage on site as we are a small facility, but there are some options for trailer storage nearby. We do not have dockage or marina access for sail boats. We also do not allow customers to live aboard vessels docked at our facility (No Live Aboards).

5 star ratingAwesome Fishing Trips Our family enjoyed two half day fishing trips in March 2019, while on vacation in The Keys. Both our Captains were exceptional and we highly recommended them! The trips were out of Bud n’ Mary’s Marina. One trip booked through the captain ahead of time and one booked through the marina the day before. The first trip was with Captain Mike Walter, in search of a big tarpon to fulfill our daughter Chelsea’s Bucket List. Captain Mike immediately put us on the tarpon and Chelsea was thrilled with the fight of her 80 pounder. The second trip with Captain Dave Peck was for a variety of different species and we caught a lot of fish, which we enjoyed. But the last fish of the day was the highlight and we will remember it as “The Fish of a Lifetime” a 250 lb Goliath Grouper! It truly was an Amazing Experience! More

5 star ratingWow all I got is wow! Went on the all day party boat with captain Walter and mate Jude. Best boat trip I have ever been in! We usually go on out local charters in Broward county- Walter is an amazing fun guy- he not only captains he works hard to know YOU and be very personable! Best captain so far I have had the pleasure of meeting! Thanks Walter for the awesome time and go I eat the extra mile to fish the way we did at the end to please me! 100% only will be using your boat when we come down every few months!
