ICW Free Docks©


Mile 0 in Norfolk, VA to Mile 1022.4 in West Palm Beach, FL

January 01, 2019



The information for HYPERLINKS and or ICW Free Docks was originally gathered in 2015, published and copyrighted in 2017, and completely revised and updated in October 2018. Many docks and marinas suffered damages from Hurricanes Matthew in 2016, Irma in 2017, and Florence in 2018, and may remain closed or only offer limited access. ICW Free Docks has continued to list all facilities based on their permanent status rather that their temporary situation. Comments are added to indicate the current status of the docks if known.


Bottom depths change over time; schedules, telephone numbers, web addresses, and FREE dockage offers are all subject to change. ICW Free Docks highly recommends that you contact or verify all FREE dockage offers before planning a trip. Please notify me if you have information that has changed or if you have a FREE dockage location that is not listed. I will update accordingly.

ICW Free Docks was originally a simple project to help friends who were cruising from South Carolina to the Chesapeake Bay. Realizing there was a need for concise information about Free Docks I decided to share the list of Free Docks with anyone who was interested. The response has been extremely encouraging and has grown to over 3,200 followers on Facebook alone. I want ICW Free Docks to become an advocate for encouraging communities located on America’s Waterways to expand their Free Docks opportunities, and I need the help of cruisers to let these communities know they heard about them on ICW Free Docks.  I have already begun discussions with various towns and communities to consider offering exclusive promotions for cruisers who follow ICW Free Docks and with other communities about offering Free Docks as a way of attracting more visitors to their locations. I also plan to expand ICW Free Docks listings to include more of America’s Waterway.
