When we first started planning a guide to marina websites, we had no idea it would come right after the guide to online marine resources in general. We did not plan it this way. It just happened. Turns out that Atlantic Cruising Club's Guide to Marinas was not only on our top 10 list of online marine resources last month, it tops the list of Marina Websites this month. Way to go ACC! The reason that ACC is the top choice is because they don't just help you find a marina, they rate it and provide a comprehensive guide to the services and local attractions. And, they provide it all free for perusing, and downloadable/printable with purchase of a book and searchable CD-ROM. Plus they provide comprehensive, unbiased US-wide coverage. It really is a valuable resource.

The others are searchable databases of marina listings with various different features attached. Dock search is a very different resource in that it connects you to available private dock space when perhaps the marinas are full or you need other solutions. They list docks available alongside private homes, dockominium rentals, and so on, connecting owners wanting to rent or sell with boat owners in need.

As always additions and recommendations are welcome

Please Note: Normally the number 1 selection receives a free link to their website. In this case, the resources are so valuable and generally non-commercial that we decided to provide permanent links to each.

Being named to the list does qualify those honored to sponsor links. Please contact us for details.

The list is not revealed prior to posting so the selections are made in relative absence of bias according to reasonably well defined criteria. You are invited to submit names for consideration.
