FAQ's

Is there a waiting list for slips, or are any available now?

We (Long Beach Marinas- Alamitos Bay Marina, Shoreline Marina, and Rainbow Harbor Marina) do not have any slips available at this time (call for changes in available slips). Live aboard status can be applied for after a slip is obtained. We are limited as to the number of live aboards allowed, and no live aboard slip are available at this time. New slips rarely become available in Alamitos Bay, so most customers start out in the Long Beach Shoreline Marina and apply for a transfer to Alamitos Bay.

There is a $55.00, per year fee (January 1 to December 31)-, which is non-refundable/non-applicable, for the waiting list. To make an application, stop by any of our offices, or send your mailing address and we can mail it to you.

Live aboards pay an additional $190.00 per month fee over the slip rate (for 1 person, additional fee for additional persons), and the boat should be completely self contained for cooking, heating and lights. You must have an approved holding tank for your head, and your vessel must be 25 feet or more.

The deposit is equal to one month rent.
