Life is Better ... on the Water

Welcome Aboard Bonita Bay
Residents & All Boaters!

Bonita Bay Marina is a full service marina located in the beautiful Bonita Bay community on the Imperial River at the south end of Estero Bay. We offer wet slips and dry boat storage, as well as on-site fueling and light mechanical services. 


Our waterfront restaurant, Backwater Jacks, is accessible to all Bonita Bay residents and to others who make reservations, by land, as well as to all who arrive by boat. Come enjoy great casual dining, or carry out for those days on the go. The Bonita Bay Marina and Backwater Jacks are owned exclusively by Bonita Bay residents.
