ST. JOHNS, THE PERFECT GETAWAY
A Extraordinaire Experience
One of the largest fresh water marinas in the southeastern United States, St. John’s Marina & Resort in DeLand, Florida, is situated on the 330-mile long St. John’s River.
Famed for its bass fishing, St. Johns River is one of only 3 rivers in the nation that flows north and one of the “laziest” rivers in the world.
By combining the serene, natural setting of the St. Johns River surrounded by the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge, the marina offers the perfect location for family getaways and leisurely seclusion.
Located only 30 miles from Orlando and 20 miles from Daytona Beach, St. John’s Marina & Resort enjoys spectacular seclusion and beauty making it an ideal escape from the busy lifestyle of the metropolitan city.
St. John’s Marina is working with Volusia County to renovate the marina. The renovation will include 170 public and private boat slips to create the option for houseboat living; a fishing pier, fishing charters, paddleboat docking and river cruises, boat rentals, event facility rentals, a dock master’s general store, a restaurant that seats 200.
Also to be built is an RV park with 140+ RV sites with full RV hookups including sewer, water, and power, and two separate showering facilities. The remaining 30 acres will be for eco-tourism.
A St. Johns’s Vacation
As a guest, your days can be spent on the property hiking nature trails, fishing, boating, nature watching, taking photographs, canoeing, kayaking, grilling out, picnicking or simply just relaxing.
The abundance of wildlife adds to the aura of the property. Alligators, manatees, fish, and birds all enjoy frolicking in this playground that nature has created.
If you wish to venture around town, there is also plenty to enjoy. Scattered throughout Deland are all sorts of activities, to name a few: a variety of museums, numerous restaurants, side walk cafes, golfing, and even skydiving. Not to mention, downtown Deland is rich with interesting history.
