City Marina's 250 slips straddle the Palm Avenue causeway in Garrison Bight, on the north side of the island of Key West. The marina has been the home of Key West's historic Charter Boat Row since the 1930s. A community of live aboard homes are also in the marina, comprising a pleasant, eclectic neighborhood on the water.
City Marina has 30 transient slips. Theses slips are located on concrete floating docks. Amenities include bath and shower facilities, an on-site coin laundry as well as vessel pump-out services. Photo By Gregory T. Absten

The marina is on the corner of South Roosevelt Boulevard and Palm Avenue. When approaching Key West on US 1, stay to the right; turn on to South Roosevelt Boulevard. This route will take you along the very edge of the island and offers wonderful vistas of the Back Country with its extensive flats and mangrove islands. Palm Avenue is the third light on South Roosevelt Boulevard. The City Marina Sign is on the right at this intersection. Drive through the intersection and enter the marina parking lot just past the sign.
