7 Reasons Harbortown Marina is THE Port Canaveral Area Choice for Boat Storage

Posted in: Harbortown Life- Jan 13, 2015 Comments Off

Located in Merritt Island, Florida, between the Indian and Banana rivers, Harbortown Marina is the ideal place in the Port Canaveral area to store your boat (and we can prove it!).  Port Canaveral cruise dockage, access to famous flats fishing spots, as well as the ocean, and the protected nature of our harbor are just a few things that make Harbortown Marina unique.

Here are the top 7 reasons why Harbortown is the best marina near Port Canaveral to store your boat:

1.  Close to Port Canaveral, Without the Crowds

Our location, 2.5 miles west of Port Canaveral, gives our customers more privacy.  Harbortown Marina allows a close proximity to the port and its attractions, but with fewer disturbances as the tourism industry continues to boom. A short trip through the Canaveral Lock gets you to the ocean where trolling is a breeze. Or, for smaller boats, try out some of the local flats fishing spots for a unique angling experience.

2.  Dock Your Boat and Cruise out of Port Canaveral with Ease

Harbortown Marina is also a popular location for Port Canaveral cruise dockage. We welcome travelers from all over the East Coast looking to dock close to Port Canaveral‘s modern cruise terminals. It’s just an 8-minute cab ride from your slip at Harbortown to the cruise terminals. Cruise lines currently docking at Port Canaveral include Royal Caribbean, Victory Casino Cruises, Disney Cruise Line (including two of Disney’s largest ships), and Carnival.

Note: We suggest transient boaters call ahead to check slip availability near Port Canaveral – (321) 453-0160.

3.  Hurricane-safe in a Protected Location

Another important reason boaters choose Harbortown Marina as their Port Canaveral marina of choice has to do with our location in a protected harbor. Minimal tidal changes, even in inclement weather, make us not subject to evacuation in the case of a hurricane. Florida is at risk for hurricanes during the months of June-November, and Harbortown is a convenient “safe haven” for your boat during this precarious season.

5.  Transient and Live-aboard Friendly

We have a great community of boaters here at Harbortown Marina. With no live-aboard fees, our docks are filled with friendly folks from all over the nation (and the world). On-site amenities include a crystal clear swimming pool, newly updated laundry facility, 8 clean air conditioned/heated restrooms and showers, a fuel deck with ethanol-free gas and diesel, marina store, and more. A pet-friendly marina, we also have a Dog Run Area for your animal friends that need to stretch their legs.

6.   All-New Recreational Area for Our Customers

The newest addition to the marina is the “Family Spot” at Harbortown, which features:

  • 6 picnic tables with umbrellas
  • Horseshoe pits
  • Adult swings for 2
  • Fire pit with seating
  • Corn hole area
  • BBQ grills
  • Smoker

Host an event here, or attend one of ours. It’s also a great place to just mingle with the community and get to know your fellow boaters.

Corn hole and horseshoe equipment can be checked out at the Office.

7. On-site Restaurant for Your Dining Convenience

Nautical Spirits Bar & Grill

While Port Canaveral offers a large variety of restaurants, many of which you can go to dock and dine, sometimes a night in is just what the doctor ordered. For fresh, reasonably priced seafood, great drinks, and friendly service right on the water at Harbortown, check out the on-site restaurant, Nautical Spirits Bar & Grill.


We could go on and on about everything there is to love about docking at Harbortown, but for now we’ll leave you with these 7 reasons. If you’d like to become a part of the Harbortown family, be it for a night or two, or the whole year, we’re happy to have you!
