“I’ve been fishing at CoCo Marina since 1985. We bring customers and friends to the Marina and the staff always makes us feel like family. The
charter guides are very knowledgeable and the food is excellent. All you have to do is show up and they will take great care of you. It’s a
great place to hold events too – I had my bachelor party there for 33 people in 2006 and attended a rehearsal dinner in 2013. Both were occasions
we will never forget."
--Steven Copley, Gordon Arata Law Firm, New Orleans, Louisiana
"CoCo Marina...is a first-class base of operations for some of the finest and least-crowded variety fishing the Gulf Coast has to offer."
--Barry Gibson, Salt Water Sportsman Magazine
“My husband Jonathan and I were just there in 2013 for a visit with two of our grandchildren. The Staff was amazing! We loved the condo we rented, the restaurant, the décor and everything else about it! Captain Eugene Foret redefines "professionalism." We didn't just have a Captain, we had a man that was polite, with a great sense of humor, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to share his "passion" for what he loves to do, and is happy to teach others how to do it! The feeling of welcome and warmth, meant the most to me, because we were there to share a special time with our grandchildren: Kodie and Kade. CoCo Marina made our trip so amazing! We plan on being there next year with more family! “

“With a nearby camp, we are regulars at CoCo Marina and can say without exception that every experience we've had there is a great one. Owner Mike Glover is always there to ensure top notch service and customer satisfaction. He's easy to talk to and glad to set up a charter for you or tell you where the fish are biting. The signature dish for the restaurant is the “Wine Island Shrimp” and is a must try! Looking forward to seeing our extended family at CoCo Marina again soon!”

“We live in Lafayette, La. We chose to build our camp at CoCo Marina in Cocodrie because we felt like Florida had ‘plopped’ right down in Cocodrie – from the restaurant, the cabana bar, the décor, the set up – but way better fishing! We also felt that the distance to Cocodrie was far enough away to feel like a ‘vacation’ but close enough to home so that we could go back and forth often. We were drawn to the tranquility of the CoCo Marina landscape, the sense of community, professionalism and the family-like atmosphere. Their restaurant is top-notch where we enjoy anything from steaks to their famous homemade onion rings. We love that our children will grow up learning about Cocodrie’s unique culture and fishing, and their knowledgeable staff is always there to talk with. On any given day we enjoy a cocktail overlooking the water at their cabana bar, entertaining friends at the restaurant or bringing the children to the Splash Park and pool. Anything you need to make your trip great, CoCo Marina has it all within one community. It truly is a sportsman’s paradise.”

"I’ve been bringing customers down to CoCo Marina for quite a few years now. CoCo Marina is the perfect place because it is essentially a “turn-key” trip. They have the complete package of fishing, lodging and a great restaurant. Their Captains are the best and very personable. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of fishing with each of them at one time or the other. They know the waters well and work extremely hard to ensure that the party brings back their limits and of course, cleaning and fileting of your catch is provided. The lodging is right by the marina and is first rate. It’s great to have variable room accommodations, as the parties that I bring down vary in number. Each room has it’s own kitchen if you want to cook. However, with their fine restaurant at the marina, we always elect to eat there. Whether its steak or seafood, the meals are always superb. Michael has always made sure that we are taken care of and that our experience is enjoyed. This is why we continue to come back to CoCo Marina."
