Updated over a week ago

We understand that sometimes navigating the inquiry process on Dockwa can be a bit tricky, especially when you encounter expired inquiries or difficulty in reaching a marina. This article is here to guide you through these challenges, ensuring your boating plans are smooth sailing.

Handling Expired Inquiries on Dockwa

If you've submitted an inquiry to a marina through Dockwa and received a notification that your inquiry has expired, here's a great workaround:

  1. Resubmit Your Inquiry: Sometimes, inquiries expire due to the marina's busy schedule or off-season periods. We recommend resubmitting your inquiry. You can do this easily by visiting the marina's page on Dockwa and clicking the 'Submit Inquiry' button.

  2. Check Marina's Seasonal Activity: Marinas often have specific active seasons. If your inquiry is during their off-season, responses may be delayed. It's best to check the marina's operating season on their Dockwa page or their official website.

  3. Direct Contact: If resubmitting your inquiry doesn’t yield a response, try reaching out to the marina directly via phone or email. Contact details are usually listed on the marina's Dockwa page.

What to Do When You Can't Reach a Marina

We're sorry this can be frustrating. If you’re having trouble reaching a marina, consider these steps:

  1. Contact Dockwa Support: Our support team is always here to assist you. Send us an email at [email protected] with details of your issue, and we’ll help bridge the communication gap.

  2. Check for Alternate Contact Information: Sometimes marinas have alternative contact details or specific contacts for different types of inquiries. These can be found on their Dockwa page or official website.

  3. Be Patient During Off-Seasons: During off-seasons, marina staff availability might be limited. If your inquiry is not urgent, consider waiting until their peak season begins for a faster response.
