The Marina at Ortega Landing has earned a reputation among discerning yacht owners and cruisers to be one of Florida’s premier yachting destinations, having earned a 5-Star ranking on Active Captain for delivering an exceptional & friendly yachting experience.

Nestled along the Ortega River near historic Avondale, the marina is just a few minutes from downtown Jacksonville. We offer resort-styled amenities that include a ski-lodge styled clubhouse with spectacular views of the river, a heated swimming pool and spa, complimentary bikes and laundry, and outdoor grilling and dining areas.

The marina is within walking distance to West Marine and many other resources including multiple grocery options for provisioning and an array of dining options, festivities, and popular local events, and the marina is considered by Cruisers to be one of the best slip-away and hurricane-hole destinations on Florida’s East Coast.

As the nautical proverb so wisely notes, “Time and Tide Wait for None”, and as such, we would like to invite you to experience our Southern Hospitality and world-class services, first-hand.

Warm Regards,

Cam Melangton – Marina General Manager

Arrival Information Details

Advanced reservations are strongly recommended at the Marina at Ortega Landing. Slips are not guaranteed without a confirmed reservation. We ask that you provide advanced notice, when feasible, of your approximate arrival time so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience to you.

Please Note: Captains and his/her assignee must check-in/check-out with the marina office for each stay unless otherwise arranged with marina management.

Check-Out: 12:00 pm Check-In: 12:00 pm


When feasible, we request an estimated time of arrival 24hr in advance so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience.

Upon approach, please contact the marina office on VHF Channel 16 to obtain directions to the slip assignment. A skilled dock attendant will report to the slip to assist with docking, line handling, and connections. Once comfortably settled, we ask that you visit our marina office to check-in. The staff will answer any questions you have.


Upon departure, we request you contact the marina office 1-2 hours prior to departure to ensure all items are in order. A receipt can be provided at the marina office or emailed upon request to the email address provided at the time of check-in. If all items are in order, please hail the marina office on VHF Channel 16 if you would like assistance with disconnection and lines.

Early Check-in / Late Check-out

If a slip is occupied after 12:00 pm on the day of your scheduled departure, an additional night’s dockage will be charged to your account.

We will do our absolute best to accommodate your requests whenever possible. In most cases, if your slip is available prior to 12:00 pm on the day of your arrival, or after 12:00 pm on the day of your departure, we will allow you to remain in the slip at no additional charge. Prior arrangements must be made with the marina office for early arrival or delayed departure in order to avoid unnecessary charges.

Temporary Slips

In the event an early check-in and/or late check-out is unable to be accommodated in your currently slip, we will try to accommodate by making another slip available until such time your slip is available or you are ready to depart the marina.

In the event a temporary slip is made available to you, and you do not relocate the vessel, the marina reserves the right to charge you two times (2x’s) the original daily rate for each night you occupy the temporary slip.

This is necessary as at times, the marina operates at full occupancy and failure to relocate the vessel could negatively affect other guests.


30 days minimum advance notice for existing customers. We kindly ask for 60 days. Deposit is converted to last month rent and electric.

For inbound confirmed vessel reservations that have a deposit on file and cancel we retain 10% of the deposit charge to cover costs and credit the balance to their card.

Please note: Cancellation policies are subject to change. Please refer to your reservation confirmation or contact the marina office direct for confirmation of cancellation policy. Cancellation requests must be submitted directly to the marina. Any cancellation requests received through the IGY Marinas website are not considered proper cancellation.

  • As a participant in Florida’s Clean Marina program, use of the following cleaners is strictly prohibited: ammonia, petroleum distillates, sodium hypochlorite or chlorinated solvents.
  • Please keep vessels, walkways, finger piers clean and free of personal items.  Hanging of laundry on vessel exteriors is not permitted. We offer free washer and dryers!   Your neighbors and the marina staff will appreciate your efforts!
  • Vessels departing the marina for a new adventure must notify the Marina Office in writing at least 30 days prior to estimated departure so we can manage final electric, allocate deposits, and coordinate inbound traffic.  Vessels opting to stay longer must notify the Marina Office 30 days prior to your estimated departure.
  • Gate key fobs are provided to all vessel owners upon arrival.   Replacement keys will be billed to your account.


  • Vessel owners are responsible for their guests in the Marina facility at all-times and liable for their actions.
  • Guests staying for more than one week must register with the marina office.


  • All vehicles must display a Marina parking tag.  The gravel and grass lots at the western end of the property is available for overflow parking.
  • Do not park your vehicle in the Fire Lanes along the walkways in front of B Dock or along the condo.
  • If you are going to be gone from The Marina for more than 72 hours, but your vehicle remains on property, please park in one of the overflow lots, and if you are leaving for an extended time, please provide a spare key for the marina office.
  • The circular area in front of the condominium belongs to the condo association and is for their use only.

Pool, Spa·   

  • The Pool and Spa are for the use of our vessel owners and their guests.
  • Please observe and follow all posted pool and spa rules.
  • Return pool deck furniture to original positions if you have borrowed chairs, etc. for a large gathering.
  • Close table umbrellas after use to avoid breakage during high winds.
  • If planning to entertain many guests on the pool deck, please notify the marina office in advance.
  • The ice machine is only for pool side use (drinks & small coolers). Large quantities of ice should be purchased off-site.
  • The trash cans at the pool are for pool side/grill trash only. Please discard other boat trash in the dumpster.

Restrooms and Showers·

  • Showers and restrooms are open 24/7.
  • Please clean up after yourself so we can maintain a high standard of cleanliness for our guests.
  • Remember, the tile floors in the restroom/shower areas and hallway can be quite slippery when wet, so dry off before entering and exiting.


  • Laundry facilities are provided as a courtesy to our guests at no charge and are available 24/7.
  • Over filling the washing machines can damage the equipment and cause inconvenience to other boaters.
  • Machines are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please take turns and be a good neighbor.
  • Monitor your laundry so that others can use the machines in a timely manner.
  • If using the pool while doing laundry, please towel off prior to entering the laundry room.


  • All dogs must be registered on your dockage agreement.
  • All pets must be leashed at all-times when not on your boat.  The only exception is in the green space near the lower parking lot by the gazebo, where dogs may be exercised off-leash if an owner is present and in control of the pet. Failure to be a good neighbor will result in the suspension of this privilege.
  • Please pick up after your pet. Pet stations are provided throughout the property. Do not deposit any other garbage in the pet waste receptacles.
  • Dogs are not permitted in the clubhouse or restrooms, on the pool deck, in the pool or hot tub.
  • Service animals when in uniform are, of course, welcome – just not as swimming companions. Please notify the marina office if you have a bonified Service Animal so we may inform our staff.

Courtesy Dock Carts

  • The Marina provides dock carts to move items from your vehicle to your boat.  Please return carts to the cart drop off areas immediately upon completion of use, even if it is late at night. You never know when another boater will arrive after you. Be sure to clean up the dock cart after using, especially if hauling dirty items.
  • Do not use carts to transport batteries, oil, or any other hazardous materials.  This type of use damages the carts and leaves a residue.  Carts are for transporting groceries, laundry, boat items and personal property.
  • Return carts to the designated staging locations in two general areas: Across from B Dock gate, to the left of motorcycle parking, and at the C & D Dock entrance paths.
  • Please do not leave carts on the docks, finger piers, sidewalks, behind the clubhouse, or inside the pool deck near the laundry.  Dock carts seem to want to gather together for small conventions.  If you see a large group of them forming, please feel free to separate them.


  • All trash must be carried off the docks and placed in the dumpsters located either in the lower parking area or near the marina office.
  • Recycle bins are available next to the dumpsters.  Please break down any boxes prior to placing in the bins.
  • Do not leave items outside of the bins on the pavement inside the enclosures.

Docks and Piers

  • Riding bicycles, scooters or motorcycles on the docks is strictly prohibited.
  • Please respect your neighbor and the marina by keeping personal items onboard your vessels.
  • Boarding stairs are permitted on finger piers, however oversize, home-made stairways are subject to marina approval, and if deemed unsightly or a pediment to finger pier access, vessel owner may be asked to seek an alternative solution that is visually and physically compatible to a marina environment.
  • No open flame in the marina. This includes grills on boats (grills are provided in the pool area and at D Dock).


  • Bicycle racks are provided in two locations, one across from B Dock and another at D Dock. Please stop in the office for an ID tag for your bike before you leave it on one of the racks. Lock your bike securely, the Marina is not responsible for loss or damage.
  • If you do take your bike onto the docks, please walk the bike to the boat and store them on board your vessel
  • As a courtesy, the Marina offers four (4) bikes for use by boaters and guests. They are located behind the clubhouse. Please sign the bikes out from the office when you wish to borrow them.

Dinghies, Kayaks, paddle boards

  • Dinghies, Kayaks and paddle boards are enjoyable items to have on board a vessel and when in use are permitted to remain in the water for your enjoyment and convenience.
  • We ask that when not in use all-of-these personal water craft should be stored either on deck, on davits, or neatly tied directly to your stern, and not tied to the dock, bow or side of the vessel for long term storage.
  • Dinghies that are visually in disrepair, full of water, deflated and are obviously not in use can be an eyesore for neighbors and fellow boaters.   If your dingy fits into this category we will ask you to either store it properly as outlined above or we will require you to remove it altogether or to rent a storage rack, which are available for a nominal monthly charge.
  • Kayaks and Paddle Boards should not be stored on the docks and are subject to the same storage guidelines as dinghies.   Storage racks are available for these items as well.

Club House

  • We are fortunate to be able to provide wonderful club house facilities for our boaters to enjoy and we ask that all who use the facility clean up after themselves and remember that this is a unique privilege to have such a wonderful space for all to enjoy.
  • When not reserved for a private party, the Club House is open and available to all boaters on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It is important to respect fellow boaters that may be utilizing the space, and if people are watching a ball game, or playing cards, or enjoying some other activity, please respect their activity and do not interrupt them by changing TV channels, playing music, adjusting the lights, etc., and practice good manners.
  • Boaters may use the refrigerator, but please do not store food in the clubhouse refrigerator/freezer long term unless you check with the office staff, and please label it with your name, slip number and date.  The marina staff and local caterers use the Club House kitchen to prepare for events and to store supplies.

Mail and Deliveries

  • Please time all package deliveries to arrive when you are on property.   The Marina does not have a designated mail room and cannot receive and store packages for long periods of time.
  • All mail should be sent to your residence or a post office box.  The Marina Office does not accept regular mail for obvious reasons.
  • If you are out of town and we receive packages for you at the Marina office, we will ask that the packages be returned to sender if not picked up.

Thank you in advance for adhering to these rules, which are designed to enhance the overall boating experience for ALL of our boaters and guests, and to help the marina staff to keep the property in top condition.
