Cooperating Clean Marinas
Helping the environment can be as simple as choosing a marina. Whether you are looking for a new home for your boat or just selecting a destination for a weekend cruise, giving your business to certified Clean Marinas supports these businesses who have voluntarily adopted environmentally friendly practices at their marinas. 23 states now have Clean Marina programs that work with marinas to help them minimize their environmental impacts. For a boater, this can mean clean, well-lit bathrooms, shoreside laundry facilities, more grassy areas, convenient pumpout stations, plenty of trash cans and recycling bins and many other amenities that not only help keep the waterway clean, they make your time at the marina more pleasant.
Clean Marina programs are voluntary programs run by many states in coordination with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA). These voluntary programs encourage marina operators and recreational boaters to protect the boating environment by practicing environmentally sound operating and maintenance procedures.
