Located north of City Marina, in the area between Fleming Key and Sigsbee Park, is Garrison bight Mooring Field. The mooring field began with 81 moorings which were increased this year to 149 Moorings thanks to grant from Monroe County's Department of Marine Resources. These moorings host a mix of fulltime live aboard as well as transient boaters. Each mooring system is inspected, top to bottom, every 90 days. Buoy systems with any sign of wear or damage are replaced. Interim inspections and damage is taken care of by the Mooring Field Dock Master. The State of Florida has followed the City's lead and established a no discharge zone for sewage from boats around Monroe County. This helps to keep the waters clean as well as keeps the City's pump-out service busy. A City Pump-Out Boat, purchased with grant money, continues to provide pump-out services to all vessels on Key West waters. City Pump-Out is removing approximately 3,000 gallons of sewage per month. It is expected that this amount will increase as the countywide prohibition on sewage discharge is enforced. This year the City added another person to the mooring field/pump-out staff. Pump-out is now a seven-day per week operation.
Mooring Field Rates: $16.47 Daily (tax included) $290.44 monthly (tax included)
