Romps Water Port Marina

Lake Erie's Family Fun Marina Since 1957

Now Open Saturdays..So March on in!

Are you Febru-weary? Maybe time to see a dock!

It’s kinda difficult to imagine it with the white stuff falling from the sky, but better days are just around the corner here at your favorite Lake Erie Marina. We can’t wait to go from this (left) to this (Right).

Now Open Saturday’s…It’s quite an oar-deal.

Moreover, now is the time to start to “Think Spring” and get your plans ready. To help you find where your boat would like to spend the summer, we are now Open Saturdays from 10am – 3pm. 

Open Saturday

Snow Joke, we’ll be here!

Now that February has officially drawn to a close we are hoping you have a chance get out of the house and stop by and see what we have to offer. We would like to show you around and talk boating to see where your Crew wants to drop anchor. Launch is drawing closer by the day. Plus the coffee is on us!

We hope to see you dockside!

 

more hot and cold

Just some “forget-me-knots”…From your Valentines!

And another week closer to spring…

With the blanket of white snow melted away and some seasonably mild temps, why not take time to enjoy Valentine’s Day with that special someone. We always look forward to this day as a countdown mark on our march toward spring and the boating season ahead.

Say something sweet, maybe with some candy..

This little tidbit below was sent to us and we found it both funny and sweet (pun intended). Though as a word of advice, you may want to get something a little less humorous as an actual gift.  For the romantics in all of us…

Finally, we just want all of our Captain’s and Crew to know that we are working toward getting the marina ready so at the very first sign of spring we can get back to boating. In the meantime if your wondering where your boat would like to spend the summer, give us a call we would love to show you all we have to offer.

After all the saying goes, “All you need is love, but a little boating never hurts”;

We hope to see you dockside!

Ice Ice Baby… Open Water Returns!

A big “THANK YOU” to the City and Ice Breaking Crews..

As we awoke today, for the first time in several weeks we found the Vermilion River to be free of ice and for that we are grateful. Winter can be a tricky time to navigate within the river community, we are especially thankful that the City of Vermilion and South Shore Dredge and Dock have worked very diligently in keeping the ice flows under control.

Pictured below the last of the ice flowing out.

Breaking up is hard to do…

As you can see the crew from South Shore really had some work to do chomping up the ice as it passed.

ice breaking too.

All’s well that ends well…

Here at your homeport, you can see what ice in the channel is melting on it’s own under some of the mild temps this week. Now, we can look forward to the approaching spring!

A very Warm Thanks on a Cold Weekend…

Party like it’s 19 (or 9) degrees…

Our first order of business is to thank all of our Captain’s and Crew for visiting with us this weekend, we had a great time and can’t wait to “SEA” you all soon!  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

A very “CONE-vincing” start to the year!

It was also a treat that for the Second time in Marina history we fired up a Dairy Dock machine and served Ice Cream in the winter.  That could be a neat tradition, because sprinkles are indeed for winners!

So next up is the wait for spring, it cannot come soon enough and when it does we hope to see you dockside!

Next Up..”R” Open House and Snow Much Fun!

We’re up to Snow Good….

We all know that the cold weather just makes us appreciate the warm that follows. Before you know it, we will start to think about putting boats in and hopefully forget all this single digit frigidness of the past week. That said, we are Snow Happy to see you, so.

There’s Snow Place Like Home!

So what can we do about this in the meantime? How about a little get together for all of our Captain’s and Crew to reassure and remind us all of better days ahead.

Join us at Romp’s Open House (aka “It’s the Snow Life” Party)  this weekend January 26 & 27 from 11am to 2pm. We will be serving Hot Dogs, & Ice Cream Sundaes (yes, Dairy Dock Ice Cream in the winter as we will have a machine up and running) and all your favorite beverages. Plus, door prizes every half hour and even a little gift full of treats.

So mark you Calendar because its a Snow Day (for Boaters)!

Also, new Captains and Crews looking for a place to drop anchor next summer, please feel free to stop by, we would like to show you all we have to offer. We hope to see you dockside!
