Ramp Information
Any seaplane with a gross weight greater than 3,000 lbs or landing gear extending more than 36 inches should approach with caution due to low water levels - the ramp is completely safe for larger planes thanks to recent ramp upgrades.

The Seaplane Base & Marina sells ethanol free 90 octane marine fuel and 100 octane low lead aviation fuel. Price will be set by the market.  Jet fuel is also available by advance request.  Please call 352.742.6267.
