Connected by Water, Adventure, Food & Friends

The Bluewater Bay Marina Complex is more than a marina. It’s a place where generations of salty adventurers and friendly locals come to kick-back, shoot the breeze and feel at home. We offer short and long term boat slip rentals, storage, gas, ship supplies and more. 

News & Events

Fishing, sailing, live music, food and drink specials and more. Located at the mouth of Rocky Bayou, inside Ward’s Cove, you’ll find a picturesque, full-service marina as well as LJ Schooners restaurant with live music and events in the oyster bar and beach area. The level of adventure is yours to dial in.
