• At Donovan’s Shady Harbor Marina,
    It’s All About Our Customers

    Being boaters all of our married lives, we understand the importance of being treated right wherever our boat takes us. The way we see it, a positive attitude, and a strong desire to create a fun environment are most important. We hope to see you regularly as we continually improve upon our facilities. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.

    —Brian and Kathy Donovan

  • What's New for 2020

    It's a whole new world out there, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Shady Harbor Marina.

    With lots of restrictions and uncertainty surrounding us all, our goal is to provide

    as much normalcy as possible to all of our returning and new friends for the 2020 season!

    2020 Season is here!

    Now that the sunshine and warm weather have finally arrived - it feels like boating season! We will continue to monitor and follow local, state and federal recommendations for social distancing on the property and kindly ask you to do the same out of respect for fellow boaters and guests. As we tell our children, "use your best judgement and make good choices!"

    Accepting Service and Launch Requests Now

    We realize many are off to a late start for the 2020 Season based on the state's phased opening and uncertainty. The Shady Harbor team has been busy and we continue to accept launch and service requests on a first come, first served basis. As always, we are limited by tides and weather...and now by social distancing limitations to keep our team safe.


    Ship Store is open daily

    The ship store is open and we are receiving new stock regularly. Stop in for boating supplies, essential grocery items and some fun gift ideas. The store is open daily.
