Since opening in 2016, the state-of-the art Port of Rochester Marina has helped draw boaters, residents and visitors to Rochester’s Lake Ontario waterfront.
The marina, located about seven miles north of the city center, sits where the Genesee River meets the lake. It provides several amenities for boaters, including showers, internet, a boaters’ lounge, a pump-out station, and a ship store. The marina also boasts a four-lane boat launch and a dock wall.
The space is popular among local boaters, but the marina also regularly hosts ships from the upper Great Lakes, Florida, Canada and even as far away as Europe.
The port is centrally located among several other bars and restaurants, Ontario Beach Park, and the Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse, making it a charming place for both out-of-town boaters and locals to stop and enjoy the waterfront.
Owned by the City of Rochester and operated by F3 Marina, the marina is also a vital part of showcasing and revitalizing Rochester’s waterfront. The area is a great place to walk, bike, picnic and enjoy water views. Since opening, several restaurants have opened in the marina’s terminal building for all to enjoy, including California Rollin’, Jetty at the Port and Abbott’s Frozen Custard. A large event space is also available for rental.
