GREAT ESCAPES                Sailfish marina      
SailFish Marina

Everyone who visits the marina spends time walking on the docks looking at the million dollar yachts and watching hundreds of fish in the crystal clear water. With unique guest quarters, ship's store, and a dockside restaurant, everything for a relaxing tropical getaway is at your finger tips. 


The captains and mates who operate the charter fleet are  knowlegable and, most importantly, friendly. If you take the opportunity to walk the Charter Dock (nearest the Ship's Store), you may hear some of those now famous fish stories and learn more about the history and the excitement of catching a trophy fish.


Indulge in waterfront dining at its finest with daily features, enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Sailfish Marina Restaurant, where fresh local seafood is the true star of the menu. Your choices range from Abaco grouper and dolphin to Florida spiny lobster and stone crabs.  They buy right off the fishing boats when available. 

The Ship Store offers a wonderful collection of treasures for all, from near and far...for the beach, the boat and beyond.  They've got you covered from head to toe, sunrise to sunset, with collections of fine Resort Wear, Footwear, Accessories, Jewelry and Books, Games and Toys for the entire family. 


The Bait and Tackle shop has all the supplies for fishing and your days in the sun. Bait and boat supplies are ready for early departures and products for sun protection, sunglasses, hats, flip flops, beach towels, beach toys, snacks, soda, beer, and ice are always available.  Please don't leave before buying "fish food" to feed the fish in the Seawall Aquarium. A delightful experience for everyone.


In the midst of this beautiful tropical island setting you will find the premiere arts and crafts show of the Palm Beaches. Be prepared for a fun filled evening as you browse through the arts and crafts. On any Thursday evening you may find wood sculpture, pottery, watercolors, blown glass, gold and silver jewelry and much, much more. There are 35 artists from as far away as Seattle, WA and as close as Palm Beach Shores, FL.  Musicians often come to try their musical skills out on the patrons of the Marina. Sometimes there's a steel drum band or there might be someone singing and playing their guitar. Whatever type of music graces your evening we know you will enjoy the skills of the musician and the ambiance of the Marina.


The Palm Beach Water Taxi is the BEST way to "sea" the Palm Beaches. Travel by water on a narrated sightseeing cruise, private charter, or the shuttle service to the greatest destinations in Palm Beach.  Come aboard one of the 20 passenger covered vessels or one of our 49 passenger Corinthian Catamarans to cruise scenic and historic Palm Beach. The vessels make frequent excursions from Sailfish Marina Resort to all areas of the Palm Beaches. Reservations are highly recommended (561) 683-TAXI.
