For more than 40 years the Martinez Marina has been supporting boating and fishing enthusiast. In 1993 a Marina Master Plan was adopted by the City that called for upgrading and replacing the marina. Plans included a new boat launch ramp, deeper water channels for the boats in the marina, new bait shop, boat storage, waterfront restaurant and more. Marina progress to date includes, removal of the old ferry pier, construction of the Ferry Point Plaza, new boat launch and initial dredging of the marina entrance. The next phase will include more dredging, break water wall repair and entrance reconfiguration. This is a multi-phase project that will take place over the next several years and is contingent upon the availability of public and private funding.
