Sunset Marina Rates
Sunset Marina season rates are determined by the length of the boat or size of the slip, whichever is greater. Miscellaneous services such as lift service, boat push, summer land storage, winter storage, air conditioning charges, bottom wash, land storage cribbing fee, trailer storage, overnight slip rates, and monthly slip rates are included on the season rate sheet.
Overnight dockage reservations may be made in advance by filling out the on-line reservation request.
