The present Marina Department has been in operation since 1940 when the T-Heads were constructed. Modern improvements including vessel requirements and commercial opportunities have created necessary infrastructure and amenity improvements. Various events year round enhance the marina proximity due to location, such as: Parades, Rallies, Buccaneer Days, July 4th Fireworks, Seafood Sales, Boat Show, Power Boat Races, World Class Sailing Regattas. These events combine to create an extremely busy waterfront area which is within walking distance to Restaurants and Nightlife.
An exciting new enhancement to the Marina is the addition of four state-of-the-art floating piers designed especially for the Marina.
