Marina del Ray has been servicing recreational and commercial boaters on the scenic Tchefuncte river since 1984. Madisonville, Louisiana has a rich history on the river. President James Madison, it's name sake, stopped by on his way to New Orleans. Lake Pontchartrain is a quick boat ride down river from the Marina’s boat launch if you are looking for open waters. If you are taking the boat out for a weekend of fishing, sailing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, or even just a leisure cruise on the lake, Marina del Ray is a great place to start. We hope you enjoy your time out on the water.
