First up…Environmental Studies.
Of course we know that the “Back to School’ season will soon be upon us, but long before that happens the kids can get quite an education just by getting some fresh air and interacting with nature. How about aquatic studies say in a nice refreshing lake?
Our uniform policy means causal dress and no shoes required…
Everyone will be stuck indoors soon enough, so why not get outside and load up on the sunshine while it lasts. Now is the time to make some lasting memories with family and friends.
It’s always recess at your home-port…
So don’t be in a hurry to let this…
Turn into this…

Celebrate with a bang…
And although Vermilion has already had its fireworks season during the Fish Festival, there will be more from nearby Huron or Cedar Point for you to view if traveling on the water this weekend. All we need is some favorable lake conditions. On another quick note, Vermilion Road has re-opened for travel to and from your family fun marina, and just in time for the busy holiday.
Important Safety Notice:
As we all know the marina if full of boats that are also full of gasoline, our environment is not suited for any type of fireworks. So we ask that for the safety of all of our Captain’s, Crew, Guests and their property; that fireworks on Romp’s Property are strictly prohibited.

First we start with remembering and honoring all the brave souls who died in the service of our country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained from battle. We are truly grateful.
Now we get to celebrate and enjoy the very freedom so many have fought so hard for.

How to make a splash this Spring…
Well, despite the weather, we have the first boat in the water! The upside is that it this is just the start and a good sign of things to come for the beginning of Launch Season.
Launch Season is here, and it’s a Shore thing…
With launch, we have started to get the marina ready for the upcoming season. Dock Boxes are headed out, and tables will soon follow. As soon as the temps get consistently above freezing we will get the dockside water turned on as well. The current forecast has temps warming by mid-week so there is a good chance that we can turn the water on this coming week.
Here’s where you come in…
It’s still early yet, but you can do several things to make sure your launch goes smoothly. First check your Ohio registration stickers, those expired March 1st. It is much easier to put them on before your boat goes in. Next is go through your launch order and make sure you have checked services needed, added a launch date, and if you have any questions or need help just Contact Us. We are here to help.
Finally, we are now open both Saturday and Sundays from 10am to 3pm if you need assitance or are looking for a place for your boat to spend the summer! We hope to see you dockside at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina.
