We pride ourselves on hosting the most comprehensive list of marina locations on the web. That said, marina names can change with new ownership, or some locations were missing even before the crew at The Wanderlust Group acquired Marinas.com and all its glorious marina intel in 2017. Credibility matters, so we’ve been quietly making our way – virtually, for now – through the U.S. mapping every dock, ramp, and mooring field.
How do we go about doing that? We have someone on the team – our fearless “spider” – leading the charge, combing a specific region each week and filling in any gaps. In addition, we receive messages from boaters and marina managers/staff letting us know or looking to make updates. And on top of all that, the rest of the members of the Marinas.com team are often out on the water, reading articles about boating and the boating industry, and/or have a penchant for simply nosing around nautical charts dreaming about up adventures; if we don’t see a marina listed that should be, we ping our Spider pal with whatever information we were able to find in order to get the process of adding their profile under way.
We then verify the basic address information with Google, track down the marina’s contact info, and email the marina staff to let them know their business has been added and they can claim the listing for free in order to update contact details, photos, approach info, etc.
Below are the marinas we added in December alone. Marinas denoted with a checkmark have claimed their marina profile, which means they’ve also most likely updated and added information to help boaters find their way and make decisions about booking. We’ll update the checks at the end of January.
Are the marinas near you on the map, claimed, and up to date? Email [email protected] to let us know if you spot one we missed.
