COVID-19: Berkeley Marina

Read the most current information regarding the Berkeley Marina here.

Berkeley Marina/Harbormaster's Office

The Marina office is currently staffed. Our team continues to patrol our docks, Marina, and Waterfront as we ensure a safe environment for outdoor recreation. 

Please call (510) 981-6740 or email us at marina@cityofberkeley.info instead of visiting the front desk to maximize your safety and ours. Document updates, payments, insurance forms, questions, and most other items can be handled without face-to-face interaction. 

 If you must visit the office, please call first and staff will meet you outside. We ask that you respect the current requirements of 6-feet for social distancing and wearing a face covering. Marks have been placed on the ground outside the office to clarify appropriate spacing.

Boating at the Berkeley Marina

The use of a private boat qualifies as an outdoor recreation activity, and may continue as long as private boating parties are limited to members of the same household or living unit and comply with other social distancing requirements set forth by the City of Berkeley Health Officer. This includes staying 6 feet away from others and covering your nose and mouth with a cloth barrier, as directed in the City of Berkeley’s active Health Order. For specific questions about boating, call the Harbormaster’s Office at (510) 981-6740.

Waterfront amenities

Waterfront trails and open spaces are open. Many Waterfront essential businesses remain open in modified capacity, including the Marina Harbormaster’s Office, Berkeley Sportsman’s Center, Skates on the Bay Restaurant, the Doubletree Hotel, the Berkeley Boathouse, and the Berkeley Marine Center’s fuel dock and chandlery.

Marina slip fee payments

Payments for Berkeley Marina slip fees can be made over the phone by calling (510) 981-2489, Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. 

Payments can also be mailed to:

City of Berkeley, Finance

P.O. Box 1910

Berkeley, CA 94701

Marina customer financial hardship

We understand the COVID-19 outbreak is creating negative financial impacts on some Berkeley slipholders. As a result, the Berkeley Marina may allow long-term slipholders to defer a portion of their slip fees for 3 months without incurring penalties or interest. 

Slipholders may defer 50% of their slip fees for 3 months; and repay the deferred fees at a rate of 25% per month over 6 months. If slipholders meet low-income criteria, they may defer 75% of their slip fees for 3 months; and repay the deferred fees at a rate of 25% per month over 9 months. Low income is defined as at or below 80% of area median income, (see HUD income guidelines, effective April 1, 2020). 

If you have questions about this policy, or would like to learn more about how the Marina can help, please reach out to the Marina Office at (510) 981-6740.
