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.


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 ratingChartered a 1/2 day offshore trip. Captain and mate very professional. Whole operation is top notch. Ordered breakfast the day before and a box lunch to take out on the boat. With the marina located 5 miles from the fishing you get a real bang for your buck. The run out took 15 minutes then we started fishing. Weather was very nice and we caught 7 fish. Unfortunately the 2 black Grouper we managed to get out of their holes are out of season until NEXT week. Saw a sailfish but wasn't interested in the live bait we cast in front of him. I highly recommend Bud n' Mary's. The Stanczyk family run a fantastic business. They take care of the customers at any cost.

5 star ratingGreat Trip with Max Gaspeny Max took our 3 sons (24, 14, and 12) out today while my wife and I went with another guide. It was the younger two’s first time with a guide and first time on salt water. Max asked them what they wanted to do and the boys answered you do this for a living so you make the call. The first spot they went they caught 50 plus fish of 11 different species and the boys had a blast. Then Max asked if they wanted to try for some Tarpon he spotted the night before. They said sure. They hooked 8, boated three a couple smaller and one Max thought was around 50 pounds. Needless to say they came back to the dock on cloud 9. Today wasn’t a great fishing day either as my wife and I landed one Jack-our only other bite was a hammerhead. On top of that Max was just so good with the boys. They all came back telling me about the stories they heard and what a great time they had. He was super patient with the little guys and shared some very kind words about them when the got back in. I really can’t speak highly enough about the experience he gave my kids today. Thank you Max.
