Valentine’s Day on the Water

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and if your boat hasn’t been dry-docked at the marina for winter, you can easily turn your Valentine’s Day date from the traditional dinner date to a fun and creative experience! Here are a few ideas for how to spend your Valentine’s Day on the water in and around Chattanooga:

  1. Margaritas & Tacos – Who needs chocolate and wine when you can get margaritas and tacos at Amigos Mexican Restaurant adjacent to Island Cove Marina. You can enjoy the water views, even if your boat is dry docked, while sharing some chips, salsa, and margaritas with your special someone.

2. Downtown Boating Adventure – Set out on your boat from Island Cove and travel through Harrison Bay to the TN River. Continue downtown and dock at the Erwin              Marine Downtown. You and significant other can then enjoy a nice dinner within walking distance, followed by a sweet treat or drinks at many of the restaurants or              bars downtown. Adding some time on the water to and from your downtown destination sets apart this Valentine’s Day from past ones.

  1. Valentine’s Getaway – Interested in getting away for Valentine’s Day? Load your boat up from Island Cove Marina and head up to Watts Bar Lake to enjoy a cabin retreat and lots of time on the water! Looking to stay a little closer, we still have a few rooms available at the Island Cove Inn!


We hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day by spending some time out on the water! If our team at Island Cove Marina can make your Valentine’s Day special by assisting you in getting your boat ready to go or purchasing a new boat for your Valentine, give us a call at (423) 344-8331.
