Port LaBelle Marina

The peaceful Port LaBelle Marina offers well-maintained boat slips and amenities in the heart of scenic Old Florida that provide convenient, safe access to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. A popular haven for both locals and visitors, boat docks at Port LaBelle Marina are made from pressure-treated wood, with two cleats and pilings on each side to ensure a secure line. Boat maintenance is much easier for our guests because we have sweet water, which means there is no salt in our water. Boaters will also appreciate that the water levels here never fluctuate, thanks to our convenient location between the Franklin and Ortona locks. Our prime location between these two locks makes us a great hurricane hole. Plus, there’s the added protection and advantage that our U-shaped basin provides. It’s how we earned the nickname of Oxbow Marina from boaters.
