When looking to answer this question, it is a little bit more extensive than you may think. Riviera Dunes Marina is known nationally as the premier Palmetto Marina, but when you are looking to rent a slip, utilize our pump out or fill up on ethanol free mid-grade boat fuel, you may want to know exactly what all of this means. We strive to help our renters understand exactly what it is that they are getting from Riviera Dunes Marina, but we may want to go over the verbage first.


Marina – A marina is basically a dock that many Palmetto boaters will utilize for supplies and maintenance on their vessel

Tide Tables – A tide table is utilized for Palmetto marina boaters to predict the future high and low times for the water

Slip Rental – A slip is an area of water on the Riviera Marina Dunes marina that can be rented out to each vessel for daily or overnight renting

Pump Out– A pump out is the act of taking waste from your Palmetto boat to safe area
