Transient Boaters

No Transient Slips at this Time

Due to Hurricane Ian, we do not have the docks to offer boaters transient slips at this time. We hope to have new docks and slips available by February of 2024.

Salty Sam’s Marina offers everything you are looking for in a transient marina including; boat rentals, charter boats for fishing or sightseeing, unique gifts and souvenirs, boat services and repairs, wet slips and dry storage.

Easily dock your boat on our floating docks with the help of our amazing marina staff. Laundry and shower services are available to all marina guests.

There are two waterfront restaurants located on site at Parrot Key Caribbean Grill and the Original Shrimp Dock Bar & Grill, both of which are dog friendly!

Voted Best Marina since 2005, Salty Sam’s is truly what boating in Southwest Florida is all about. Salty Sam’s Marina is located on the intercostal water­way, tucked safely behind Estero Island (Ft. Myers Beach), just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. An ideal location with proximity to all that boating in Southwest Florida has to offer. Salty Sam’s features state of the art storage for you boat whether you’re look­ing to keep it wet in the water or high and dry.

Free WiFi available.
