September 27, 2017 – Hurricane Irma

When asked if Hurricane Irma did any additional damage to the marina, I sometimes think there really wasn’t much left to damage.  I then think about the marinas around us that are literally GONE and am very thankful we incurred very little additional damage.

We still have 12 mooring balls, 5 transient slips, dinghy dock, short term dock, boat ramp and showers available.  Call for info (904) 310-3300 or visit our website for the contact form by clicking here.
