The Maryland Clean Marina Initiative recognizes and promotes marinas, boatyards and yacht clubs of any size that meet legal requirements and voluntarily adopt pollution prevention practice​s. The department has certified 30 percent of Maryland's estimated​ 500 marinas as Clean Marinas or Clean Marina Partners and we aim to continue increasing this number moving forward.

Boaters are encouraged to patronize certified Clean Marinas and to adopt clean boating habits. ​The collective effort of individuals and businesses will improve the quality of Maryland's waters from Deep Creek Lake, to the Chesapeake Bay, to the coastal bays!​​
