Marinas come in all shapes, sizes, vibes, price points, and availability trends. Keep track of where you’ve gone, which places you’ve loved, and what marinas are on your bucket list with endless Lists on Marinas.com.

Creating a New Marinas.com List

Creating a Marinas.com List is easy:

  • If you have an account, sign in. If you don’t, go create one in seconds.

  • Once you’re signed in, click on “Account” in the upper right-hand corner of the page, and click “Profile” in the drop-down menu that appears.

  • Within your profile you’ll see your basic profile information, including the # of reviews you’ve left, when you joined, etc., but the main part of the page will show your Favorites, Lists, and Reviews.

  • In the List section, click the blue “New List” link

  • Give your List a name, description, and choose whether this List is private or public, and click “Create List”

  • This will create your List, and reload to show you your new List – which, since this List is brand new, is currently empty. Start adding to it!

Building a Marinas.com List

  • To add to a new or existing List, first find the marina or harbor you want to add, either by Map in the top navigation bar – which will give you a handy Search bar to find names of marinas, harbors, towns, and waterways – or you can find marinas, harbors, anchorages, and more, by way of the Explore tool.

  • Once on the location’s Marinas.com profile page, click the heart icon for a drop-down of options – now that you have your List created, that List will appear as an option.

  • Rinse, repeat!

  • If you find a marina that you want to add to a List that you haven’t yet made, you can also click that heart icon and choose “New List” at the bottom of the options.

Ways to Organize Your Marina Lists

Marinas by Region

If you’re cruising from harbor to harbor, delivering up or down the coast, or taking on the Great Loop, the first List organization method as you research might be to group them by region. With Lists, you choose the name (and can always edit it later) so don’t feel constricted by State names. “Leg 1” and “Leg 2” or “Fall 2020” may be more appropriate to your plans.

Marinas by Event

If you’re planning to charter a boat for a vacation excursion, or are traveling to a regatta, rally, or fishing tournament, you can make a List just to map out which marina stops you’re eyeing to bookend the event or for the event itself.

Marinas by Fandom

We all play favorites! Whatever your criteria, you can bucket list marinas by Loves, Likes, Dislikes, and Never Agains. Any review you leave on a marina’s page will show up in your List, so you’ll have a note as to why they made the grade or failed miserably. :)

Bucket List Marinas

We all have a mental bucket list of harbors and marinas we’d like to visit – make it official with a List spanning the globe of everywhere you’re dreaming of (or planning on) visiting by boat one day.
