JOINING MARINALIFE

How can I receive discounts on fuel, dockage, and other services through Marinalife?

Once you join either the Cruising Club or Cruising Club + Sea Tow membership, you will be eligible for dockage, fuel, and other discounts with participating partners, as well as many other benefits! Review our membership options above, and choose the one that is the best fit for you.

Once you are a member, all you need to do is mention you are a Cruising Club Member with Marinalife when making your dockage reservations, before fueling up, or when taking advantage of another discount. You will need to confirm by providing your membership number, found on your card, or by presenting your digital or physical membership card for verification when services are rendered.

Can I get Marinalife dockage discounts when booking online with Snag-A-Slip?

Yes! All you need to do is sign up for a free Snag-A-Slip account using the same email address on file with Marinalife. Eligible discounts will apply automatically during checkout.

If you already have a Snag-A-Slip account and your Marinalife Membership is not yet showing, you can add it. Simply log into your account and navigate to Personal Info. From there, add your Marinalife Membership email into the Marinalife box in order to verify your membership. Please note that each Marinalife Membership can only be associated with one (1) Snag-A-Slip account.

Are Digital Subscribers or Magazine Members eligible for dockage, fuel, and other discounts?

Digital Subscribers and Magazine Members are not eligible for dockage and other discounts. To receive these discounts and other benefits, such as the free boat show ticket, please join or upgrade to the Cruising Club or Cruising Club + Sea Tow levels.

I am a Digital Subscriber. Can I upgrade my membership?

Yes! To get started, please log in to your existing account, and navigate to your Member Profile. From there, go to Membership, and then to Upgrade. You will be able to choose between our Magazine only membership, our Cruising Club membership, or the Cruising Club + Sea Tow membership.

What extra benefits do I get for adding Sea Tow to my Marinalife membership?

How long does a Marinalife membership last?

Membership expiration is 1 year from the date you joined or renewed, and you can even select to auto-renew so that your membership never lapses. If you upgrade or renew early, a prorated amount of your previous membership cost will be applied towards your new membership.

I haven't received my Marinalife Membership card yet. What should I do?

We are now providing instant digital membership cards that you can add to your phone’s mobile wallet! Simply visit your account and navigate to your Membership Card area to generate your digital card today.

If you prefer a physical card instead, please change your preferences in your account. Physical cards will be mailed to the address on file in your account at the beginning of your membership year.
