BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – As part of a nationwide observance, Harbortown Marina is celebrating National Marina Day on Saturday, June 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This year’s event will celebrate the spirit of boating in Brevard County, encouraging boaters to cruise into the marina and share in the fun of on-the-water activities.
At the event, the local Coast Guard and Sea Tow Port Canaveral will be set up on-site at Harbortown to answer questions and provide information about boating safety and services.
Hot dogs will be provided both to attendees, and boaters and their “crew” that come by to fill up on fuel at the marina that day. Throughout the event, boaters are encouraged to accompany a Harbortown crew member on a free tour of the marina and its facilities.
“We have found that the people in this area really appreciate fun, outdoor, family-friendly ways to spend their leisure time,” says Tina Evans, Accounting/Marketing Manager at Harbortown Marina.
“National Marina Day is a great time to celebrate the fact that boating meets each of these requirements. We hope that this year’s event will remind our existing customers and the surrounding community that Harbortown Marina is a beautiful gateway to on-the-water fun.”
On National Marina Day, in every corner of the country, marine businesses will collaborate to hold similar events designed to introduce the public to the boating lifestyle, and promote enthusiasm for activities on the water.
Some important goals of National Marina Day include raising awareness of standard boating safety procedures, growing the boating population across North America, and just celebrating the “Life on the Water” lifestyle that boaters across the country enjoy, especially in the state of Florida.

The crew and staff at Harbortown Marina are passionate about these goals year-round, sharing boating lifestyle and safety information in e-newsletters, at marina events, and across social media.
Harbortown Marina is a full service marina located on the Barge Canal, between the Indian and Banana rivers, just 2.5 miles west of Port Canaveral.
Nestled in a protected harbor, the marina offers dry rack storage, wet slips, and a dry DIY yard. With a heated pool, marina store, customer recreation area, dog run area, and the cheapest fuel in the Merritt Island – Port Canaveral area, Harbortown is well-suited for new and experienced boaters alike.
