+! on Riviera Dunes Marina in Palmetto for all the reasons listed above. Floating docks, security, great restaurant, two floating pools and the best hurricane hole on west coast of Florida. Five minutes from I-75

We kept our boat there in the hurricane years of 2004 and 2005 and recently took it there from Punta Gorda for Irma.

In terms of employees and amenities I would compare it to The Marina at Ortega Landing in JAX.

Some of the slips are owned by individuals and if you can find one of those you will save some money on local taxes.

long story..... At the time I had a N46. I wanted to buy a slip. This slip was close to a couple of her friends. Bad decision on my part. The wife left.....
The values of the slip, over the past 10 or 15 years, has increased from $81K to about $275K. Good decision. I should have bought 2 slips instead of getting married. When I sell the slip, it will pay for a 55ft slip closer to the gate and the divorce. LOL

"Secure. The marina I am at now is gated to vehicles with maned security and patrols."

More of an East coast requirement , different folks are on the Wast side.

There is a trade off to be made between car commute times and boat commute times. It is much faster to drive a half hour further than boat the same distance. Tampa bay is a big place. Probably 12 miles across from Apollo beach to St. Pete. I suggest considering driving a bit further to be where you want is preferable to boating the same distance id all you are doing is moving to a short stay location.
