Located on the Mississippi at  mile marker 831 with beautiful river side locations

Discover the River

Castaways is a small private marina and year around residential community located at Mile 831 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 Minneapolis – St Paul Airport, the Mall of America. 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.

An Unrivaled Boating Experience

Castaways Marina features a 1000 foot long, ten foot wide head pier providing access to forty-two individual boat slips 60′ long or 90′ long, ranging in widths from 16′ to 20′. The Marina provides city water, metered electrical service and propane service at every slip, a waste pump for every other slip, and 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 neighboring public marinas.

Marina amenities

Amenities at Castaways include a clubhouse 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.
