The objective of the Marine & Aviation Department is to operate as a revenue-producing department with a well trained and dedicated staff that provides high quality marine and aviation related services with excellent customer satisfaction to our citizens and customers.In furthering the City Council’s Strategic Direction to support a high quality of life and experience, the Marine & Aviation Department strives to provide quality resources for the marina and airpark tenants both permanent and transient.
The Marine and Aviation Department is responsible for the management and supervision of four facilities that operate on a seven-day-a-week basis: the Airpark, Clearwater Beach Marina, Clearwater Harbor Marina and Seminole Boat Ramp.
The department has the responsibility for approving commercial dock applications with regard to navigation, City established channel markers, wake zones and restricted swimming areas.
Clearwater Comprehensive Boating Plan
The goal of this plan is to increase activity in downtown Clearwater by attracting boaters, pedestrians and families to the area by connecting the Beach, Downtown and Seminole Boat Ramp/North Marina District. A daily connection is currently ongoing with Clearwater Ferry shuttling passengers back and forth from the downtown to the beach. The North Marina Master Plan project to revamp the Seminole Boat Ramp site will be completed in 2019 making that location more of a destination, rather than just a departure point. Imagine Clearwater improvements to Coachman Park will further advance these goals.

Coast Guard Partnership
The City of Clearwater and the Marine and Aviation Department work in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard at the Clearwater Air Station near the Clearwater/St. Petersburg Airport and the Sand Key Coast Guard Station just south of Clearwater Beach. With miles of coastline bordering Clearwater, this partnership is a natural step in the protection of citizens near and on local waters.
