Wet Slips

Whether you’re a first-time boater or an experienced seafarer, you’ll need to occasionally dock and come ashore. Unlike cars and similar vehicles, boats can’t simply be “parked” anywhere: You need a dedicated mooring spot to keep your boat safe and functional. We offer both wet slips and dry docking here at Mangrove Marina. Dry docking can be a good choice for long-term storage, but slips make it easy to keep your boat ready for your next adventure when you are.

Understanding Boat Slips

At our full-service marina, we offer wet slips so that you will always have a safe, secure way to store your boat while still maintaining direct access to the water. You can be confident that your boat will remain secure via dock lines but protected from waves, tides, and similar potential hazards.

Wet slips use pilings and mooring points to keep your boat secure and stationary when docked, dock fingers for additional berthing space, and piers for easy access. We have more than 100 wet slips for both transient and liveaboard boaters, and an incredible 90% of them are open on a first-come, first-served basis. They’re spacious enough to handle boats up to 70 feet long with beams up to 24 feet long and drafts of up to 5 feet.

The Benefits of Wet Slips

Convenience: With a wet slip, you can get out on the water quickly without having to take your boat out of storage and launch it every time. Instead, you will simply go straight to your boat and step on board.

Simplicity: You won’t need to shuffle your equipment onboard and off each time you travel. Store life jackets, fishing gear, and other essential boating equipment right where you use it, and eliminate the need to transport everything every time you want to go out on the water. No more forgetting necessary items, forcing you to make return trips or visit the ship store: You’ll have everything you need every time you need it.

Safety and security: Security is paramount in our modern world, and at Mangrove Marina, we’re serious about keeping our 20-acre facility safe. We’re located in a natural hurricane hole protected by hearty mangroves. You can even stay in slips during storms, but we offer dry storage for those who prefer it. We also use the latest surveillance systems and controlled access to ensure your stay here is worry-free.
