The Lake Mead Marina will be moving out of Boulder Harbor because of continued lowering water levels on Lake Mead. On Friday, February 8 (weather dependent), the Lake Mead Marina will travel about two miles south and will become part of the Las Vegas Boat Harbor Marina in Hemenway Harbor. The main sections moving are the A& B docks (about 470 slips). The launch ramp and harbor will be temporarily closed during the move (7:30 a.m. to about 12 noon).

The C-dock (288 slips) moved and became part of the Las Vegas Boat Harbor one year ago in February 2007. The Las Vegas Boat Harbor Marina will have about 1,390 slips when the move is complete. The Gripentog Family, who recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary on Lake Mead in September 2007, will continue to own and operate the Las Vegas Boat Harbor Marina.

The Boulder Harbor launch ramp (commonly referred to as the Lake Mead Marina launch ramp) will remain open to the public after the marina move is complete.

The National Park Service (NPS) is committed to maintaining public access to Lake Mead during this period of extended drought on the Colorado River system.
