Wonderful experience from the beginning! The office staff was accommodating, pleasant and helpful. The dock staff, Barry specifically, was informative and enjoyable. Had a great day traveling on the waters!!! Definitely will rent again from Flora-Bama Marina!

Capt. Skip was great! It was so cool to watch him catch shrimp and teach us about the shrimp and fish caught in the net. What a treat to see Dolphins up close. Had a blast catching fish as well. Thanks Captain Skip!
