As we continue to figure out the new normal of the moment, boaters everywhere are looking to take advantage of the built-in social distancing that life on the water provides.  We’re also looking for excellent destinations, particularly those where protocols are in place designed to keep us safe while maximizing our enjoyment.  It is with these things in mind that we wholeheartedly encourage you to experience Stock Island Marina Village in Key West.  Please read on to see why we love it and why we think you’ll love it, particularly now.

And be sure to see their Peace Of Mind Promise further down the page.


ruisers are often asked, “what’s your favorite destination?”  It’s a question very few can answer as there are so many different reasons why we all enjoy the variety of places we visit.  But we most certainly all have our list of favorites.  Every so often we are lucky enough to come upon a marina that ticks off so many boxes of what we believe makes a destination truly great.  In our opinion, Stock Island Marina Village simply knocks it out of the park as a world-class marina in a resort setting with a casual vibe and a cool culture – just the way we like it. On our first visit, we came for a month and stayed for two.  Now it is a regular part of our south Florida cruising adventures and our home for much of the winter.

We feel so strongly about “SIMV” not just as a Key West destination, but as a destination unto itself, that it’s the first marina we have entered into a select partnership with.  We have found that so many cruisers we meet seek out the same kinds of experiences as us and if we can better help spread the word about places we love, we believe it can help make life on the water more enjoyable for everyone.  It’s important for you to know that our obvious enthusiasm for SIMV predates our entering into a select partnership with them, and continues to the moment.



We love the beautiful Bellingham floating docks with pump-out hookups at every slip.  The regularly scheduled pump-outs really help to make life onboard easy.


We call this a Jasper Approved Destination because dogs are welcome almost everywhere and there are two beautiful dog parks!


When we have guests not staying on-board OLOH, they love the luxury accommodations at the onsite Perry Hotel. It’s easy to see why it’s won so many awards!


Dock staff who know how to handle lines and welcome you with a smile!  One of the best teams we’ve come across.


There are two stunning, waterfront pools, each with dockside bars and grills, pristine grounds, clean and private bathhouses, a free hourly shuttle to Old Town Key West, free WiFi and much more.  We love taking advantage of it all!


From the time you tie-up to the time you leave, the Ship’s Store and Dock Team work hard to make your stay a memorable one.  You’ll quickly see, as we did, that hospitality is a top priority.


We’re big fans of all of the onsite eateries – Matt’s Stock Island Kitchen and Bar, the Salty Oyster Dockside Bar and Grill and the brand new Barrel House (temporarily closed) – and they’re all dog-friendly!  Don’t miss their happy hours when they return every afternoon – they are legendary!


From parties to group yoga in their fantastic event space to fishing tournaments and some of Key West’s biggest festivals, we love taking part in the fun that’s always something fun going on in the Village.

We’re guessing you’ll connect with so much of what draws us in.  Read much more about Stock Island Marina Village and why we love it so much by clicking here:
