The Marina at the Port of Rochester - a Port of Opportunity

 Port-of-Rochester-title The construction of the Port of Rochester Marina is nearing completion and already bringing new opportunity to Rochester. The marina will be open for the boating season of 2016!

The marina provides transient and seasonal boat docking for a variety of vessel types. It will accommodate boats up to 80 feet in length.

The marina entrance is connected directly to the Genesee River approximately 0.5 miles upstream from the entrance into the channel from Lake Ontario.  


The marina includes a boater services facility providing showers, restrooms, laundry facilities, a lounge, and a small ship store.  This facility is available for marina operations, and services to marina patrons and their guests. The marina will provide pump-out services and utility connections including Wi-Fi, electricity and water. A brand new parking lot, dedicated to the renters of seasonal docks, is also provided adjacent to the marina.

A public promenade and public spaces encircle the perimeter of the basin while a gangway for boaters provides secure access to the docked boats.

A four-lane public boat launch with minimal launching fee is available adjacent to the marina.

The Port Terminal Building, adjacent to the marina, houses restaurants and public restrooms and provides a large party space that is available for rent and overlooks the River.


Seasonal slip reservations 

Requests for seasonal slip reservations for the 2016 boating season will be accepted beginning Oct. 6! Visit the marina reservations page for details and contact information. 

Broadside (transient) reservations 

Broadside transient docking along the perimeter of the basin will provide boaters up to two weeks of time in the Rochester area, visiting local attractions. Broadside reservations will be accepted at a later date - check back soon!

Day use  

The dock wall in the Genesee River along the west river wall will include opportunities for daytime broadside dockage so visitors can visit the beach, local restaurants, or take a walk or a bike ride along the Genesee Riverway Trail.
