A recent blog entry about Pelican's Perch Marina
While in Pensacola FL we decided to do a quick haulout to fix our profusely leaking stuffing box and check the bottom condition after our multiple groundings. We also spent a couple days tied up to their docks there to rest and do some interior cleaning.
We can't say enough nice things about the crew at Pelican's Perch Marina and Boatyard. They were very professional and exceeded our expectations in the "friendly" and "helpful" categories. If you happen to be in the Pensacola area or panhandle of Florida I would definitely recommend them for a priced right and convenient boat yard (West Marine is also just a short walk down the road) or as a nice marina.

A recent letter to Surfside Marina
"Greetings. From a 'new to me' boat owner and one who is learning the ropes, I wanted to send a note on how much I appreciate your crew at the Marina. Everyone from the office and store down to the boat crews and especially Santos, have always been willing to help me out and teach me how to maneuver my boat. I have had Jon do some service work and Daniel is always willing to answer my questions. The facilities are clean and that shower sure feels good before heading home. I took this photo last night (10-17-2010) as the sun set over the marina. Thanks again for running a first rate marina."

What Florida Cruising Directory says about our neighborhood...
"Perhaps the most outstanding non-physical feature of the Panhandle is the attitude of its residents toward visitors. While other parts of Florida get more attention as tourist destinations, no other region will make you feel more welcome than you will here. Service people and tradesmen will go out of their way to accommodate your wishes or needs, yet they don't think they are doing a thing but being decent. Couple this with the outstanding scenery, plentiful good food, and an almost overwhelming sense of history, and you'll see why we say this is a cruising area not to be missed."
