My wife and I have boated the Florida coastal waters, keys, and near islands for several years. Only recently did we take a trip to Fort Pierce and were so surprised that the area is a boaters paradise. The area is perfect for cruisers whether making an overnight stop or spending the season at one of the many marinas or anchorages. The Fort Pierce inlet is a great jumping off point if you are heading to the Bahamas. We liked the area so much we decided move and our dock our boat at the Harbortown Marina and continue our boating adventures from there.
There are several boat yards and marine supply stores, which includes a West Marine, Taylor Creek Marine, Whitcar Boat Yard, etc. Marinas include Harbortown Marine with both diesel and gas, Pelican Yacht Club, the Fort Pierce Public Marina, and others.
If you are a day boater there are several boat ramps from which to launch. On any given weekend we saw dozens of boats anchored or beached at the numerous sandy beaches and sand bars.
There are numerous restaurants on the water with dockage nearby, Cobb’s Landing, The Original Tiki Bar and Restaurant, Harbor Cove, to name just a few. A short walk from the city marina you will not only find restaurants but also you can find gelato, a bakery, and the neatest general store that has an amazing selection of bottled soft drinks and beers, plus a great luncheon menu. In the evening several of the restaurants have live entertainment
The downtown area has gone through a revitalization with many shops and galleries. Other attractions in the area are the U.S. Navy Seal/UDT Museum, Fort Pierce Lady deep sea fishing party boat, Indian River Lagoon State Park, and more.
