Marinas in Jacksonville, Florida
Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida, is on the banks of the St. Johns River on the Atlantic coast. As with most coastal cities, boating is popular for recreation and business. Jacksonville is home to several top quality marinas, each with its own benefits and services.

Ortega Yacht Club

Just off the St. John's River, the Ortega River offers both inland protection for vessels and easy access to the Atlantic. Despite the name, the Ortega Yacht Club Marina does not require membership. The facility includes floating docks and 99 boat slips with electricity and water. It is also conveniently located, just five miles south of downtown Jacksonville.
