Parrot Cove Marina
We offer a safe quiet deep water marina on calm beautiful Palma Sola Bay to keep your boat in for long term in the water boat storage or overnight transient slips. We are not a boatyard so you can relax to the sounds and sights of nature and not forklifts or heavy equipment like some other marinas. The bay waters surrounding the marina are teeming with fish of all kinds as well as dolphin and manatees and the mangrove forest surrounding Palma Sola Bay is home to all sorts of birds, including bald eagles, pink rosetta spoonbills, osprey, great blue herons, snowy egrets, white & brown pelicans, wood-storks, parrots and many other kinds of birds.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and business by delivering you friendly service in our new secure fenced & gated marina that is well lit at night and has the extra security of us also living in our home on the marina property. We are a small friendly peaceful "old Florida" style marina where you can relax and feel secure. 90% of our boat slips are open to the public on a first come first serve basis.

Directions to Parrot Cove Marina:
By car take Cortez Rd. to 115th St. and turn North to Parrot Cove Marina located on the South shore of Palma Sola Bay.
By boat enter Palma Sola Bay close to marker # 50, which is North of the Cortez bridge. Proceed East about a half mile to the junction of 3 channels, use the most Southerly channel of the 3 ( the one on the right ) which is identified by signs for "San Remo" & "PARROT COVE". Enter the channel between the pilings with the green & red "PARROT COVE" signs on them and then proceed East about 200 yards to the entrance to our marina channel. Our marina channel entry will be on your right and is marked by 2 brightly painted green pilings that have 1 green and 1 red carved wooden fish on them with PARROT & COVE painted on the fish.
For boats with a deep draft the West side of our entry channel is 6' deep at low tide, the East side of the channel is not as deep.
