Anchorage Areas

There is a large anchorage area south of the main Harbor channel, between Sister Creek and the Boot Key Bridge. In an East or Northeasterly wind, good protection can be found on the West side of Boot Key, just outside and to the south of the West entrance to the Harbor.

Mooring Balls and Information

AerialMapThumb

The City mooring field occupies most of Boot Key Harbor, North and East of the main Harbor channel. It consists of 226 permanently attached, engineered mooring systems that provide secure holding for vessels up to 60’ in length. Since very little scope is required, more vessels can be accommodated within the same space as compared with a traditional anchorage. This increases the overall Harbor capacity and eliminates crossed-lines, flaring tempers and other ills associated with over-crowded anchorages.

Renting a Ball
Vessels wishing to acquire a mooring ball must contact the City marina upon entry into Boot Key Harbor. Moorings are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis; there are no reservations. If all mooring balls are occupied, customers may place their name on a waiting list by coming in-person to the Marina office. Vessels will be assigned based on mooring availability and vessel length. 211 moorings have a maximum vessel length of 45′, while 15 moorings allow for vessels up to 60’.

Canal Dockage Information

Vessels wishing to dock in the City marina canal must contact the marina upon entry into Boot Key Harbor. Dockage is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis; there are no reservations. If all dockage is occupied, or a vessel is too large for the space available, customers may place their name on a waiting list by coming in-person to the Marina office.

Assignments will be based on dockage availability and vessel length. Insurance coverage of at least $300,000 is required for overnight dockage in the City marina canal.

  Dinghy Dockage Information

Dinghy dockage is available at the north end of the City Marina canal and just south of the marina office building. There is a signpost indicating separate areas for hard and soft dinghies. Painters must be 4′ to 6′ in order maximize dockage capacity. A section of dock in the soft dinghy area has been marked as accessible for our disabled customers regardless of dinghy type (if you are not disabled, please refrain from using this space unless no other is available).

Use of the dinghy dock is free for mooring ball and canal dockage customers. Harbor guests at anchor may also use the dinghy dock for a fee. All dinghy dock users must register at the Marina office and receive a tag that must be displayed on the vessel at all times.
