Sunset Marina
General Information
Sunset Marina is owned and operated by the City of Rock Island Public Works Department and is located in Sunset Park at 31st Avenue and the Mississippi River at mile marker 479.8. Sunset Marina offers quality docking space for 473 boats from 16 feet to 60 feet in length.

Boat Launching
The public launching ramp for boats is located at the north end of Sunset Park.

The Marina has a 35-ton travel lift which can set a boat on land for repairs, take a boat off a trailer for launching, or load a boat on a trailer so it can be transported to another location.

Sunset Marina Rates
Sunset Marina 2014 season rates are determined by the length of the boat or size of the slip, whichever is greater. Miscellaneous services such as lift service, boat push, summer land storage, winter storage, air conditioning charges, bottom wash, land storage cribbing fee, trailer storage, overnight slip rates, and monthly slip rates are included on the season rate sheet. 

Overnight dockage reservations may be made in advance by filling out the on-line reservation request.

Slips 
An In-Harbor Waiting List was established to allow leaseholders to have the first opportunity to rent slips that become available.  Leaseholders who wish to add their name to this list may do so by submitting the In-Harbor Slip Request to the Sunset Marina Office during regular business hours.  Sunset Marina also keeps a 2014 Available Slip List which changes each week.
