Hi everyone. I am new to boating and would love to find out all of the hang out spots for me, my wife and young son. We found sand island last week and would like to know where else we can go on the weekends to hang out with other boaters and families. I would like to keep it kinda close to the Gulf Breeze area but we are willing to travel a bit. I have a 24 ft boat so going into the gulf shouldn't be too big of a problem either. I know quiet water area is a good place to dock at as well. So lets hear about you favorite place to hang out on the water

Well you've already found one of the prime locations, others include the area behind Flounders, or behind Paradise Bar and Grill on Pensacola Beach. Also, a little further down the beach on the long point just east of the Portofino towers a lot of folks gather from time to time. On the bay side of Gulf Breeze, people gather up a the big sand hill in the Naval Live Oaks and at Dead Man's Is. Welcome to the forum!

place to dock in Pensacola

Im wondering if there is a place to dock and go to a wahoo game? We keep the boat on Perdido Key and would like to boat over for a game, but need to know if there is a place to dock a boat.

Great replies guys. But I don't know where most of those places y'all are talking about.....Is there a google map of them? Maybe we can work on getting something like that together for those of us who just want to pleasure boat.

Pirates cove and the florabama yacht club are restruants on the water.
You can call them and they can lead you there or just google it and a map will show up.
The orange beach island is in front of perdido pass bridge. You can't miss it.
The beach hangout spot next to pensacola pass is noticable just by being in a boat coming out of pensacola pass. Just look to the right and go to the beached boats.

Or just get on here and ask where something is and you will recieve several of the same answers.

Hub Stacy's is also a nice stop

Call the oar house and see if they have any mooring spots available....They are fairly close to the wahoo park....The fish house has a marina but I don't ever see any boats there....There is also a canal right behind the ball park that has a private marina....I would suggest coming over by car and scouting for a possible spot.....

Did this area become a dog beach? We went last weekend and dogs were everywhere. Not against it, just wondering.

The apex of weekend boating and hanging out is crab island in Destin....2-3 foot of water for about 20 acres...perfect for anchoring and partying...they have floating bars, restaurants, bait shop...they have large inflated slides and jumping toys on the spot...they even have little skiffs riding around selling ice cream etc...not to mention it's right near the famous Destin Boardwalk

Can I get the names of all of the places to eat while on a boat...Meaning they have a place to dock the boat.

Yes, there have been a couple threads. Try the search function. Off the top of my head: pirates cove, florabama yacht club, peg leg Pete's, hemingways, several places at portofino boardwalk (across from casino beach), paradise, grand marlin, marina oyster bar, Jaco's, joe patti's, and others.

It's the small cut behind peg leg pete's restaurant about half way down the island towards fort pickens. If you pass chicken bone beach you went to far.

Rick, it's actually in Josephine, AL. It's a bar/marina/restaurant with great music, burgers, and people watching.
