Southwest Florida boaters and residents have a new waterfront destination for fresh seafood and full-service marina facilities: Backwater Jacks restaurant and Bonita Bay Marina, both within the Bonita Bay community in Bonita Springs.
Facilities at the full-service marina, which offers direct Gulf access, include dry storage and wet slips now available for nonresident boaters. Backwater Jacks – the marina’s popular waterfront restaurant known for its fresh fish and seafood, salads, chicken wings and chargrilled cheeseburgers – is open through May.
The restaurant and its Basin Bar have extended operating hours and will be open for the first time to the Southwest Florida community. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m. For those arriving by car, reservations must be made by calling 239-992-3010 prior to checking in at the gatehouse. Boaters may also make reservations but are not required.
Bonita Bay Marina offers slip rentals from $264 per month with dry storage for vessels up to 32 feet and wet slips with lifts for vessels up to 16,000 pounds. The marina also offers a fully stocked ships store, boat launch, detailing services, bait and fuel. Captain Ed’s Charter Boats, which operates three 20-passenger vessels out of Bonita Bay Marina, offers licensed captains who provide back bay fishing, sightseeing tours, sunset cruises and other outings. Marina Club boaters are also eligible for reciprocal privileges at other Yachting Club of America locations.
For information about the marina’s rental program and other services, call 239-495-3222 or visit www.BonitaBayMarina.net.
