We were there on a beautiful summer evening. The parking was bad, so be prepared to walk. Very crowded. We had our boat docked there in the 80's. Very happy we no longer have our boat! Way too crowded and conjested for me.

Nice place to lie back and hang out and perhaps grab a bite to eat at the food courts and maybe take a boat ride as well.

This is a wonderful place to visit during the summer months, you can purchase food of the usual summertime fare. The ice cream is exceptional. The only con is nothing is open during the winter, not even the rest rooms. Given the large rise in...More

Enjoyed our visit and tour of the marina. It was a splendid walk along the dock up to the lighthouse style observation deck.

There is something about having bone marrow as a side! The restaurant is located right on the water. Water side tables only accommodate 2; however, the view is there for EVERY table. Raw scallops, tuna tortillini, et al is just not my forte! Had one...More

I am not sure becauseI wasnt there to rent a boat, only to walk around and look at the sites. But I do remember people renting boats for certain parties years ago... it might be something you want to call and check on.
