If you are a boat owner it’s a must to know where you can anchor your boat depending on what kind it is or the time that you are thinking to rest. There are two main places for this, an anchorage site or a marina. Below you will find a little description of these sites and depending on its characteristics you can choose which one fits your needs.
An anchorage site is where boats, vessels or large ships can safely drop anchor in water deep enough to float. Sometimes these boats are too big to get into a port, which is why these anchorage sites are so convenient. Depending on the area you can find places where anchoring is free or sometimes they just charge an overnight fee if you are thinking to do this.
Also, you can find places where there are some amenities nearby like restaurants, bathrooms, grocery stores, and shops.
A marina is a docking facility with moorings and supplies for yachts and small boats. In these areas, the docks have land and water portions. The main difference between a marina and an anchorage site is that a marina doesn’t handle large ships. A marina allows people to leave their boat tied and go walking on the pier to find refueling, washing and repair facilities. You can include more services in a long-term rental agreement.
