Boaters flock to Fernandina Harbor Marina after full reopening
The Fernandina Harbor Marina is booked 100% this Memorial Day weekend after being restricted to boat owners and occupants during the COVID-19 pandemic. The marina was closed for three years after being badly damaged during Hurricane Matthew in 2016. We just got in maybe 1 1/2 hours ago, so we just came ashore and they did not have slips available at the Marina," Owens said. Because the marina is 100% booked this weekend, theres no short term or day docking available today or tomorrow. The city is doing its Memorial Day Service at the Veterans Memorial Monument in downtown at 11 a.m. Monday.
