The boat ramp closure is necessary to allow for project preparation, staging and removal of boats from the marina basin.

DUNEDIN – The Dunedin Marina boat ramp will close to the general public May 8 to make way for a dredging project.

Dunedin will begin dredging the marina June 1, with staging in the parking lot areas possibly starting a week before. The boat ramp closure is necessary to allow for project preparation, staging and removal of boats from the marina basin. Once the dredging operations begin on June 1st, it is an active construction zone and access to the Marina, boat slips, day docks, pier and west side of the Marina and Boat Club is prohibited.

Edgewater Park will remain open; however the playground is currently closed because of COVID-19. At this time, Olde Bay Café will remain open for take-out only.

Annual boat ramp passes for 2020 will be extended for the same length of time the ramp is closed. The city’s goal is to have the dredging finished as soon as possible. The contractual completion date for dredging is Nov. 2, however the city has offered incentives to the contractor for early completion.

The newly renovated Seminole Street Boat Launch is the nearest public boat ramp, about 2.8 miles south of the Dunedin Marina at 201 Seminole St., Clearwater.
