This is my second review on Jensen's Marina resort, and for the second time they are getting 5 stars. I am already planning the next visit, so this speaks by itself.
My family and I had a fantastic 3 night vacation. Lots of fishing, from the dock and from one of the boats that we rented for 2 days.
My first visit I got from Jensen's dock a bonnethead shark, while this time a black drum of 23 inch long (excellent to eat). The live shrimps that you can conveniently buy at the marina shop are perfect for fishing!!!
I highly recommend renting the boat and reach Cayo Costa State Park. You need some experience with motor boat, and keep an eye on the weather.
