Access Points and Destinations - Wednesday, January 17, 2024
Where NWOC lives is a private marina, not public property. Our landlord, Boatworld Marina, is demanding less traffic on their dock, so if you are not renting a boat/board from us, we have to institute a $7.00 per craft fee to launch from our location. A Season launch pass costs $50. Checkin at the office and pay upon arrival. If you are arriving with friends who are renting from us, the fee will be waived for up to 2 companions with their own craft. Craft must be inflated or assembled upstairs so as not to impede our business on the dock. Free access points
