Our floating slips are state-of-the-art concrete floating docks. Electricity, water, portable pump-out units and free Wifi internet are available at every slip.

A floating dock consists of a flat rectangular pontoon and longitudinal towers. Our floating docks are made of steel and reinforced concrete and can rise on the towers and keep your boat secure and level up to 15ft!

Durability – The concrete walking surface will outlast other materials frequently used in marine construction. The pontoon ensures the concrete does not come into contact with salt water. Little-to-no maintenance is required, and the dock system can stand up to wind, boat waves, hurricane strength weather, sun, rain and saltwater.
 Watch for our updated marina map - coming soon!

Our covered docks are secure and most include lifts. Lifts are based on GROSS Weight of the boat (fully loaded with fuel, motors, water, gear, ice, etc.) We provide locked gates and security cameras. Availability is limited, please contact us for current status.
