Welcome to Boathouse Marina

The Boathouse Marina welcomes you to our sleepy little town.
Historic Palatka is located on the St. Johns River, one of only a few in North America that flows northward. The Seminole Indians called this place, “Pilotakita”, meaning crossing or ford. Early settlers also referred to Palatka as the “Gem City”.

Palatka is centrally located between Jacksonville and Orlando, Gainesville and Daytona Beach, and Ocala and St. Augustine, in the crossroads of the North Florida area. You can arrive by car, train, or plane or by boat on the St. Johns River.

The Boathouse Marina is family owned and operated. Since purchasing the Marina July 2006, we have been deligently updating the facilities. We are  hands on in the  day to day operation with the goal of bringing the Boathouse Marina to the standards that qualify us for a clean marina designation as well as meeting all your  needs.

Our marina consists of 40 wet slips, clean restrooms and laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, a security gate and an in-slip pumpout.
