Can I moor my boat at the dock while I eat?

Yes, but there are limitations. The dock in front of Bowriders is prioritized for Fuel Dock customers.  We do allow mooring after 7pm, but ask that you check in with a dockhand to ensure we leave the fuel pumps open for boaters looking to refuel.

Is Bowriders comfortable on cold rainy days?
