The Town proudly operates and maintains the Matanzas Harbor Municipal Mooring Field. The field has 70 mooring balls available for public rental year-round, and accommodates vessels up to 48 feet. The field is east of the Sky Bridge between San Carlos and Estero Islands in Matanzas Pass.

For recreational cruisers, Mooring Field is a wonderful destination. Coming ashore at the Town’s dinghy dock puts boaters in walking distance to beaches, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and public transportation.

To modernize the registration process and make it mobile instead of manual for guests, the Town has recently contracted with Dockwa, a marina technology company. This new online process also allows for immediate and efficient communication between the Town and guests, which will be especially helpful in emergencies or other situations that might impact guests.


Upland services are provided by Matanzas Inn.

For more information, please call the main office of Matanzas Inn at (239) 463-9258.
