The Marina consists of a main aluminum floating dock 210 feet in length, individual boat slips, and an ADA Aluminum Gangway with PVC Wolf decking. The docks feature Heavy Duty 8” aluminum dock structures and aluminum cleats for docking. Gasparilla Marina is equipped with Interior Piling Hoop Brackets for anchoring purposes, this helps with the depth of the water at the marina.
