National Marina Day - June 14th (9 am till noon)

 National Marina Day


In 1928, the word “marina” was used for the first time by the National Association of Engine and Boat Manufacturers to define a recreational-boating facility. Ever since then, marinas have been an integral part of not only American recreation, but also American life. I invite you to join your friends at Belle Haven Marina on June 14th from 9 am till noon, to celebrate Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day.


To observe this day, the staff at Belle Haven Marina has planned the following events for your enjoyment:


Free 1 hour canoe trips through Dyke Marsh

Free 1 hour kayak trips through Dyke Marsh


We believe thatAmerica’s marinas have a lot to celebrate. Across the country and right here at Belle Haven Marina we serve as gateways to boating for our customers and their visitors,  boater-education centers teaching safe and clean boater practices, environmental stewards  protecting our waters, and finally family-friendly communities who are united for a shared  passion for the water.


Now, more then ever, Americans need clean, safe, relaxing locations where they can spend their leisure time. You already know that boating satisfies this need, but why not bring some of your non-boating friends out to Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day to let them experience boating first-hand.


Thank you for your time and for your business. Without you, the customer, our business would not exist. As you know, my door and my phone line are always open. So, please let me know if I can ever answer any questions about our services. I look forward to celebrating Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day with you and to serving you in the future.
