Why Choose Us?

The Gulfport Municipal Marina, also known as the Gulfport Small Craft Harbor or Bert Jones Yacht Basin, is the address for Mississippi's front yard and is located in the state's 2nd largest city.  The marina and fuel dock is 100% owned, operated, and staffed by the City of Gulfport, Mississippi.  The marina can accommodate vessels up to 140' and has 319 slips with berthing capability for vessels from 18' and up.

Come on down to Mississippi's Golden Gulf Coast and give us the opportunity to show you why we have been chosen for five years running as a 1ST CHOICE MARINA by Active Captain.  With all the comforts of home, including sparkling clean and air conditioned restrooms, hot showers, and a dedicated laundry facility, you'll be happy you stayed with us.

Whether you're planning long-term permanent dockage in our beautiful marina or just coming in for a short-term transient stay, our dedicated team of Marina Associates is always at the ready to welcome you into your slip.  Many of our staff members have a significant background in boating and some have their own boats as well.

Each pier is equipped with slip-side pumpout service meaning you'll NEVER have to leave your slip when it comes time to empty your holding tank.  Pumpout service is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.  This is a do-it-yourself operation for tenants, but Marina Staff will be happy to show new users how it works during our normal hours of operation.

Each slip has a minimum electric service of two 30A, with many others offering a single 30A and a single 50A in the same pedestal.  We also have numerous slips with two 50A receptacles at your service.  Single phase 100A power is also available.  At the Gulfport Municipal Marina, power will never be a problem.

We know boats, we understand boaters, and we're ready to help you in any way possible.  Simply put --- our goal is to do everything and anything we can to be sure your boating and docking experience lives up to your every expectation.  Just like the rest of the City, we're open for business and geared for a good time!!

Conveniently located at the most southern point of U.S. Highway 49, the Gulfport Municipal Marina is central to virtually everywhere on the Ms. Gulf Coast.  New Orleans is just to our west, Mobile is just to our east, and the Barrier Islands are just off our coast.

Situated right on the Marina's northern periphery, Jones Park is one of the finest green spaces to be found anywhere in the State of Mississippi.  With several concert pavilions and a dedicated amphitheater, there are a number of events that take place here every year including the Gulfport Fishing Rodeo and many live music festivals.  And it's all sitting right here in our own backyard!!
