Geraldton Batavia Coast Marina

Aerial photo of Batavia Marina and surrounding infrastructure.

Batavia Coast Marina is a well-maintained marina facility close the Geraldton city centre.

The marina is a popular base for seasonal charter boats and visiting recreational boaters due to its proximity to the Abrolhos Islands, a popular destination for fishing and diving. 

Facilities available include a service jetty, universal access fishing platform, boat ramps and long and short-term vessel accommodation. 

Close to the marina you can find accommodation, dining, shopping and entertainment options, as well as the Museum of Geraldton which celebrates the rich heritage of the Mid West.
