Your Welcome Home port of call.

River Haven Marina is a full service, year round facility. We offer a relaxing transient stopover for those boaters passing through the Big Bend of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.

Our marina is located on the Steinhatchee River, about two miles upriver from the open Gulf. It’s well protected from inclement weather and close to town and shore side needs.

Slips have an average depth of 10 feet and full amenities including fresh water, electricity, and cable TV hook-ups.

Note: the Steinhatchee River has a variable MLW which ranges from 3 1/2 feet to 6 feet depending upon season. There is a fixed bridge that you will have to come under that has a 26′ clearance on average.

If you need a break from the boat, River Haven Marina and Motel offers several different accommodations for you to chose from.

We monitor Channel 10.
