Fueling operation upgrades have also been completed, providing 18 high-speed dispensers supplying diesel, gasoline and bio-diesel. Sixteen of the more popular Charter Boats enjoy the convenience of in-slip fueling, which has drastically reduced the need for boaters to wait in line to fuel.

Renovated Fish Cleaning/Bait & Tackle/Fish Sales

Hook 'em and Cook 'em Restaurant, Fish Cleaning Services, Fresh Fish Sales, and a Bait & Tackle Shop (Click for full-size picture, 1.48 MB)...

The former fish cleaning and sales building has been totally renovated providing not only fish cleaning services, fresh fish sales and bait & tackle sales, but also Hook 'em and Cook 'em caters to the hungry fisherman and visitors with steamed crabs, shrimp, and a variety of tasty seafood treats.

Drystack Storage Facility

Drystack Storage Facility - inside (Click for full-size picture, 1.81 MB)...

We are extremely proud of the recently completed 156-slip drystack rack storage facility which provides "valet boat service" for boats up to 35' in length. This environmentally correct alternative to leaving your vessel in the water is not only convenient and helps to preserve the finish on your boat because it is not being constantly subjected to the deteriorating ultraviolet rays from the sun, but eliminates the need and expense of annual application of potentially polluting bottom paint. Patrons may also realize a savings on their insurance rates by having their boats stored in a building that has fire suppression sprinklers.

Boating Supply Store

Boating Supply Store and Facilities (Click for full-size picture, 1.47 MB)...

Our new Indian River Boating Supply Store maintains an inventory of the most sought after supplies for your vessel. This new building also houses the drystack administration office, public restrooms, and slipholder-only accessed private shower and restroom facilities.

Travel Lift Well and Service Yard

Service Yard (Click for full-size picture, 545 KB)...

Our Marine Travel Lift, rated at 50 tons lifting capacity, is available for hauling and storing your vessel on land to conduct repairs and/or maintenance.

The state-of-the-art marine service yard is designed to collect all run-off from rain and/or wash-down areas. Run-off is directed through an oil-water separator, then water is filtered through a bio-retention swale prior to being deposited into a stormwater management basin meeting all current Delaware environmental regulations.

Administration/Operations Building

The final major project to complete this four-year transformation has just gotten underway.

A new office complex, which houses not only marina staff but also the administrative and ranger staff for Delaware Seashore State Park, is being constructed immediately adjacent to the existing office. The offices are complemented by generous public spaces, conference facilities, laundry, and pass-key-only showers and restroom facilities along with public restrooms.

An additional amenity which is part of this complex will be a ship store selling a variety of sundries, sandwiches, and staples (milk, bread, eggs, etc.).

The anticipated opening of this new facility will be spring 2009.
