The City of Tavares Economic Development Department is pleased to report that the reconstruction of the Tavares Seaplane Base & Marina is under design.  The brand new boat docks, seaplane docks and fueling dock should be completed and available for use by October of 2020.

It is estimated to take about three more months to complete the design, then another four months to obtain permits from the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection, United States Army Corps of Engineers, and St. John’s Water Management District. Once permits have been received it is estimated to take about ten months to construct. This will take us to a grand opening date of around October 1, 2020.

In the meantime many boaters and seaplane pilots are enjoying mooring up along the Tavares shore line, fueling at the fuel pumps or unloading and loading passengers at the temporary docks.  The Tavares Seaplane Base & Marina is located at 150 E Ruby Street.  For more please call 352.742.6267.
