The stretch of Bayou Castine from the public launch to Lake Pontchartrain is shallow on the east side of the bayou. Boats with drafts that exceed 6 feet should enter or leave no further east than the center of the bayou. Upstream of the Pontchartrain dry storage area, the depth exceeds 9 feet.


The New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor (MYH) owns and operates all slips near NOYC and SYC. Boats may tie up on the north side of the northern-most pier in the outer harbor. That area is closest to SYC. Boats may also tie up at the dock area immediately adjacent to NOYC and at the dock to the east of NOYC. Please do not go on the new floating piers. Construction there is incomplete. Building materials are stored on those piers and may be hazardous. Contact MYH for more information. See https://nomunicipalharbor.com/site.php for details, or contact Taylor Casey at tacasey@nola.gov.

Orleans Levee District owns and operates the Orleans Marina near SYC and NOYC and South Shore Harbor Marina with transient slips, power, and water. Contact: http://www.marinasinneworleans.com/OM.html
