Marinas at Gulf shores, Ala

Anybody got any suggestions for a stop over marina in
Gulf shores, Alabama, for the month of Feb.
Stayed a month there at a house a few years back and really
liked it, good golf courses, excellent workout center and the
best Key Lime pie anywhere at Lulu's but I want to bring
the boat down and stay awhile.
thanks for any info

We have stayed at Sportsman, Orange Beach Marina, The Wharf, and Lulus all in that area and all good, if you'll be there a month a car would come in handy. Also Bear Point the marina there is fine but out it is pretty far out of the way.
You can check them out on the interactive map of activecaptain.com

I kept my Blackfin at Sportsmans for 9 years. Good people and a really good restaurant on the premises. Fishing is some of the best around, and the Perdido Pass is easily reached. Steve's right. To get the most out of Gulf Shores/Orange Beach/ Perdido Key area a car is necessary.

Bear Point Marina has a new owner and it is really improving there. Great restaurant on site.

Barber's is really nice, and the cheapest to boot. Only negative is that it's on the north side of the ICW,

Very nice marina, just a long ride by auto to many places.

Like the other poster said, it's a bit of drive from Barber's to the south side of the ICW. But, Barber's is still my favorite in the area.
