Welcome to Bootleggers Cove Marina, a 26-acre full service Niagara County marina located in Wilson Harbor, NY. No matter your power boating needs, we’ve got you covered. In addition to being an outstanding marina in one of the best locations on Lake Ontario’s New York side, Bootleggers Cove (previously known as Sunset Bay Marina) has a rich history in Wilson Harbor and Niagara County. Now under new management, we’ve started a complete restoration to preserve its roots and make it the highest quality (and most fun) private marina on the lake.

Whether you want a home for a large powerboat or for a fishing charter vessel, Bootleggers Cove Marina is the place to be.

Bootleggers Fuel, no pumpout (there is one at Tuscarora Yacht Club near the inlet entrance) $2/ft Nice floating docks. Bathrooms and showers are a bit of a walk, but there are 4 shower/toilet rooms that are basic but nice and always clean. The most frustrating part was not being able to reach anyone by phone or text on the weekend. The voice mail for the marina says they are closed Sat and Sun (really?!?), but Jimmy, the manager, says that they are open on the weekends. On the Monday we were to arrive, I texted both numbers saying we were coming in. I got a response that there was room and I would be given a slip number. When we were in the cove, I texted and said we were 5 minutes away and we needed help docking. At that point I got a slip assignment. And Jimmy and Wyatt were there to help us dock. They do have plenty of room, but it would have been nice to have some sort of a confirmation. After we docked, everything was fine. Jimmy was great in helping us get to the rental car place in Lockport.
