The Sacramento Marina is a 475 slip public marina at the southern end of Front Street, nestled behind beautiful Miller Park on the east side of the Sacramento River. As the largest, most convenient and only off-river dockage marina in the Sacramento area, our location is an ideal one for docking boats and enjoying the waterways.
