We offer four different licenses to fit your needs. These include monthly, six

No. We do not allow outside contractors on the premises. If you want to clean
your boat, or do light maintenance you are welcome to a work/wash rack
(available up to 3 hours if other guests are waiting). Since we are a clean marina,
we do not allow any changing of oil and/or other fluids on the work/wash rack.
Only authorized users on your account may access your boat to clean it without
you being present. These authorized users may not be contractors (this is grounds
for license termination). However, we do have detailing services available to you
through our service department if you wish. You are welcome to take your boat
off the property for any additional upkeep and/or heavy maintenance you would
like to do yourself.

Saturday and Sunday through Labor Day. We are the only marina in the area to
stay open that late for our boatel guests! Our Operations staff works late picking
up boats on holidays like July 4th, so our guests can enjoy fireworks on the water
with their families.
