Being situated on the Oneida River and  NY State’s Erie Canal gives Pirates Cove Marina the distinct and unique advantages of:

Location : We are at the geographic center of New York State near Syracuse on major waterways including the “Loop” to Lake Champlain and Canada, the “Great Loop” through to the Gulf of Mexico, New York Harbor and the Eastern US Seaboard, and all the Great Lakes (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior). We are also situated on the beautiful and historic Erie Canal that traverses New York state through the ‘Finger Lakes’ wine country!

Weather: Even when areas around us are not navigable,  every day here is a boating day!  Wind and swells on the lakes do not affect us – protection of the river is a huge boating advantage! Flooding or low water rarely has an effect at Pirates Cove Marina because of our unique location on the canal.

Proximity: Pirates Cove Marina is just minutes by car from a highly commercial developed locality on Route 31 in the town of Clay with provisions and supplies, entertainment options, restaurants, shopping, grocery, hardware and liquor stores.  Hancock International Airport is 9.5 miles away for your convenience; Train and Bus Station is 10 miles from the marina. We are merely 18 miles from the City of Syracuse.

And yet… as close as we are to convenience and civilization, Pirates Cove is a tranquil haven nestled amongst fields of deer and wildlife, and with herons, osprey and eagles soaring overhead.

You can see why you get a better boating season at Pirates Cove
come and enjoy your boating time every day!
