Fifth Avenue Landing’s new look

Notice anything new? Like a friend who colored her hair and got a cut, Fifth Avenue Landing has a completely new look!  We’re so excited to announce the launch of our new superyacht marina website — it took us a couple years, but we finally created an interactive forum for us to share all our resources with you.  Since we opened in 2008, we struggled with the development of our concierge program – how could we be a better host to our guests?  The answer was simple, like dinner parties, guests should just enjoy an effortless stay.  Lucky for us, we throw a mean dinner party.  Here are the cool new features we’re serving up on this new website:

- Resource Directory where we provide info for places - rental/hired cars, accommodations, spas, etc. - that extend special discounted rates to our guests.

- News and Events Blog and Calendar to keep you updated on the latest happenings at Fifth Avenue Landing and fun activities around San Diego.

- Recommendations and reviews from past and present owners and crew — and where you can share your own!

- An exclusive, password-protected Marina Login section where marina guests can find access codes, emergency contact information and other important information you’ll need during your stay with us.  (Contact the marina manager for the password!)

- Quick link to Fifth Avenue Landing’s facebook page

- An online form to make future reservations and/or request a rate quote


So be our guest, browse our website, explore our city and make Fifth Avenue Landing your home away from home…away from home.
