The rate was 95 cents a foot with a Boat US discount. They have floating docks for up to 8' draft.

This marina is sort of strange. They have no problem with taking transients, but they have no services - no showers, and no laundry although they do have ice and fuel. They have internet access and bathrooms in the marina trailer which is only open 8 to 5. Otherwise no bathrooms. They do have fuel, ice and water, and there is a restaurant that is about 1/2 mile away. They also apparently have bikes.

Equipment: They say that they have:

151 wet slips with floating docks
8' draft MLW
Ocean access 6 miles north and 5 miles south
