Interested in getting out on the water?  Fishermen’s Village Marina is promoting the upcoming June 13th National Marina Day to provide visitors with on-the-water boating experiences.  We want to introduce people to our marina and to boating who otherwise might not have the opportunity to get out on the water.

King Fisher Fleet will offer two, one-hour narrated cruises in the upper harbor, departing at 11:00 a.m. and at 1:00 p.m.  Tickets will sell for $5, which will be donated to the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center in support of its programs.  Reservations are recommended by calling 941-639-0969.

Deck boat rides will be offered courtesy of Holidaze Boat Rentals to provide hands-on boat operating experience to those interested. Reservations are encouraged by calling the Marina office at 941 575-3000.

We hope to have two or more moderate size sailboats whose owners will take small groups out for a short sail.

We will offer two free nights of dockage (Friday and Saturday) to our local boaters. To reserve your free space, call 941 575-3000.

Marine-related exhibitors will be located by the docks.  This will be an opportunity to advertise your organization and solicit membership.  The space is free – tables and chairs to be provided by the participants.  Please call 941 575-3000 to reserve space, deadline is May 15, 2015.
