The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority has opened its 1,001-slip marina to slip holders 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  Normally the harbor opens on May 15th, but as of today it is open for the season.

If you'd like to get an early jump on docking or launching your boat, you can now do so. 

Peter G. Demakos, DFTA commissioner said "As a result of mother nature proving us with a stretch of nice weather and the dedication and hard work of our employees, we are able to give our customers a head start on the boating season this year."

There are still slips available for rent for this boating season.  Call 828-0027 and online at
