About South Bay Marina

Our History

South Bay Marina opened for business in the spring of 2003 continuing a long line of successful marina facilities dating back to the late 60's.

Started by Capt. Justin Finch, his goal has been to provide quality services with a personal approach. At SBM we pride ourselves on having the best captains in the area. Our captains know that knowledge of the local water is an important part of the overall experience, but also honesty and communication with the client is equally as important. In September of 2017 our facility was severely damaged in Hurricane Irma.

Currently South Bay Marina is working with Stock Development to be part of the One Naples project. We are excited for the completion of our new facility offering boat rentals, fishing charters, fuel services, bait and a stocked retail store.
