Snook Bight Marina

Snook Bight is a full service marina located about in the middle of Estero Island behind Publix, next to Bayfront Bistro. They offer boat sales, rentals, service and storage, and also have a fuel dock available to the public with exclusively non-ethanol fuel.

Boat Rental fleet consists of 17-25 foot pontoons, 17-21 foot center consoles, 21 & 23 foot dual consoles. Prices start at $185 per day. This is the only marina I have personally rented from. The experience was great and they offer fuel service at the dock (prices was as reasonable as it gets on the water) and allowed us to store the boat at our property overnight to maximize our boating time. I would rent from them again.

    I rented a pontoon from Snook Bright in June of 2011 when we had some friends come visit us. The boat was in decent condition, not great but also not terrible. Probably about an 7/10. Most of the other rental boats I’ve seen on the water are in the 5-6/10 category, with a couple exceptions.

    They were very flexible with us, let me pick it up one day in the afternoon around3 or 4 right before they closed, keep it at our house dock, and return it at the end of the next day so we got a good full day use out of it.

    Their staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend renting from them.

    I rented 4 boats in the last year from Snook Bright Marina and the most recent 01/ 2013. The lady that is behind the counter and answers the phone a lot is very nice and accommodating. This last time, the 171/2 pontoon rented was less than desireable. Mold spots were on the cushion seats, moss growing off the pontoons and the ladder as well as a worn interior. If it were not for the guests that I had ready to go for a fun time, I would have rejected the boat. That particular boat needs to be retired !!! Additionally, the young lady giving us the boat orientation was snip and kurt….maybe an owners daughter…who knows?

    I like the place and will try it again but I will tell them that I want a nice boat or no deal.

    pulled into this beautiful marina and was shown a nice set of amenities. Pool, shower area, laundry, ship store and was told free sat TV and internet.
    Pros
    Dock staff amazingly helpful and friendly. always on hand to help with the lines.
    Beautiful building with a great fountain and outdoor seating area and setting on the back bay
    abundance of marine life (manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, rays ect.)
    new docks and hook up, looks great and very convenient.
    Dock side bar open on weekends.
    Great community of boaters.

    Cons
    Internet is nearly dial-up speed and kicks you off frequently. very poor!!!!
    ship store is sparse. They seem more interested in selling you a paddle board than helping you stay supplied for boating or fishing (which is why you come here)
    Laundry is expensive.
    Store staff could take a lesson from the men on the dock on customer service and friendliness.

    Recommendations
    Double your internet speed.
    create more of a members atmosphere for your slip paying customers. (I understand that they don’t want to supply fishing licenses to the general public “because it takes to long” but for paying slip customers call it a members perk).
    Stop outsourcing your laundry and lower the price since it is for members only anyway.
    Have member socials once a month or so to help foster community. (they’ll come back year after year to be with the friends they’ve made)
    Stock your store for your slip, rental and charter customers. Check out the ship store competition in the area because they’re all doing it better.
    Get or turn on the heater in the pool.

    Overall a great marina with some surprisingly missed opportunities to be the only real yacht club style marina in the area.
