Harbors and Marinas

A harbor or harbour, also called a haven, is a body of water where ships, boats, and barges seek shelter from stormy weather, or are stored for future use. Ports usually include one or more harbors.

A marina is a dock or basin with moorings and supplies for yachts and small boats.

Group Details

Harbors may be natural or artificial. An artificial harbor can have deliberately constructed breakwaters, sea walls, or jetties or they can be constructed by dredging, which requires maintenance by further periodic dredging. In contrast, a natural harbor is surrounded on several sides by prominences of land.

Marinas may be located along the banks of rivers connecting to lakes or seas and may be inland. They are also located on coastal harbors (natural or man made) or coastal lagoons, either as stand alone facilities or within a port complex.
