Launch Location


Must reserve in advance; no walk-ups.


Long Island Marina

8400 Long Island Rd, Catawba, NC 28609–click for directions.


By car, our location is perfect for avoiding heavy I-77 traffic. Easily accessible from Charlotte, Mooresville, Statesville, Sherrills Ford, Troutman, Denver, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Hickory, Newton, Conover, Catawba, Claremont, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and the entire Lake Norman area.


By water, our location offers quick access to low-congestion areas–perfect for lake cruising, tubing, water sking, etc.  We are also close to several restaurants, gorgeous homes, Lake Norman’s only waterfall–Balls Creek Waterfall (only accessible by kayak)–and more Lake Norman fun.


Once you arrive at the marina, park in the first parking lot on your right (you’ll see a bright green What’s Up Watersports sign). Then, walk down toward the water to the right of the main building (follow bright green sign), and check-in at the table underneath the green umbrella (see bright green sign).
