"Tarpon Cove was the perfect venue for our wedding and exceeded our initial vision and expectations! We had our ceremony in the outside terrace area where it overlooks the bay and provides THE.MOST.PERFECT backdrop, and our cocktail hour and reception was in the main dining room.
Mark Nicklas and his staff are amazing, they helped us throughout the planning process and answered all the questions we had until the day of. Trust me, we had a lot of questions, and emailed/texted them back and forth so many times. They were all so very professional, accommodating, nice, and easy to talk to. Mark worked with our outside vendors to make sure the day of our wedding went smoothly, and it did! We got a wedding package, so that included appetizers, food/drinks, table linens, etc. (they even gave us the choice of our salt & pepper shakers!). Mark was in constant communication and provided us opportunities for walk-throughs and a tasting with the chef two weeks prior to the wedding… our guests are still talking about how outstanding the food was!
The day of our wedding could not have been more perfect. Mark and his staff took great care of us; words can't even describe how special they made us feel! Right after the ceremony, Kadie (the best club manager EVER) made sure we had some food and drinks before the cocktail hour and reception started. My wife and I had the best day of our lives, and we've gotten nothing but positive feedback from our guests. Some even said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!
Words can't express how thankful we are to Tarpon Cove (especially Mark, Chef Viki, Kadie, Andrew, and the staff) for making our wedding perfect. We definitely recommend booking your wedding at Tarpon Cove or even your next party!"

" Choosing to have our wedding at Tarpon Cove Yacht Club was the best idea! The food was delicious, chef did a great job and the cake was excellent. Servers and staff were so nice, my friends and family had a blast. The coordinator went above and beyond to make sure our day was super special. I couldn't think of any other venue to host our special day."
Wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with you and your staff regarding the Celebration of life for Karen, my wife, on Saturday, August 7th from 2:00 to 5:00 in the upstairs clubhouse room. The room was decorated just the way Karen would have loved. The (5) tables of appetizers and wide variety of food was fabulous and enjoyed by all who attended. You have a marvelous chef! With over 100 in attendance, the room never felt crowded or too full. I, my family, and friends can't thank you and your staff enough. Great job!"
"Wanted to Thank You so much for all you and your staff did to make my night super memorable!! We all had a FANTASTIC time !! Everything was great!!"
Thanks so much again,
