Castaways is a small private marina and year around residential community located at Mile 830 on the west bank of the Mississippi River in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The marina is nestled in a secluded back channel of the river behind Newport Island. Although Castaways appears to be in a serene, rural location, it is actually only minutes by road from downtown St. Paul, the Metropolitan Airport, the Mall of America, and Minneapolis. Castaways’ privacy is enhanced by its proximity to Inver Grove Heritage Park which borders Castaways on the west and provides access to a bike trail, walking paths and a public dog park.
Castaways Marina features a 1000 foot long, ten foot wide head pier providing access to forty-two individual boat slips ranging in length from forty feet to ninety feet and in width from sixteen feet to twentry feet. The Marina provides city water, metered electrical service and propane service at every slip, a waste pump out at every other slip, and free wi-fi service throughout the Marina. As a private marina, we do not provide fuel service, mechanical services or a small boat launch ramp. However, those services are available within walking distance at a neighboring public marina.
Amenities at Castaways include a new clubhouse (2018) with bathrooms and showers, coin operated washers and dryers, exercise machines/ workout area and heated storage units. A small kitchen allows us to host small parties for our members and guests.
