A first-time nationwide event uniting the entire boating industry around the common goal of increasing boater participation,
Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day is a collaborative effort where multiple recreational boating entities will come together on June 8, 2013 to promote the boating lifestyle. Organized by Pennsylvania Environment Council’s Delaware River Ambassadors,  in support of the national Discover Boating industry initiative, National Marina Day on the Delaware will demonstrate that the Delaware River is an ideal place to Discover (or even “re-Discover”) boating.
