   West of marker 35, about 200 feet south of the Naples City Dock and north of the Naples Yacht Club channel, the city has installed a mooring field that is well protected in all but northeast winds. Eight mooring balls are available to mariners on a first-come first-served basis. There is no charge for mooring, and vessels may remain for up to 14 days out of any 30-day period.
  The chart shows 6-foot depths; some reports say less. Recent dredging of the yacht club channel also has altered depths. This area is small and is utilized by many varied interests in addition to the dock and the yacht club. Once the moorings are occupied no other vessels are permitted to anchor. You can call ahead to check availability (Ch. 16, 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM) but they can't be reserved and someone might still get there before you.
  The Naples City Dock accepts transients and has water and power connections. Gasoline, diesel fuel, showers, a laundromat, pump-out and a small ship's store are available.
  Many local attractions, supermarkets, banks and downtown stores are a short walk away. Other marine facilities and restaurants are nearby.
  If you find yourself heading back toward Gordon Pass and you're tired, there's a nice pool just west of marker 21 where you can put the hook down for the night if you're really well behaved. It's big but very residential.
