    With a million dollar private property view, and only 5 miles north of Ithaca, NY, is Finger Lakes Marine Service.  FLMS was Established in 1953 by Mr. Leon 'Bo' Ford and his wife, Mrs. Louise C. Ford.  This family owned and operated full service marina in Lansing, NY has been an ideal place for boaters for over 68 years. 

 

     The pioneers of the marina appreciated the water and respected the environment. They had a vision which included marine services as well as environmental sustainability.  These same visions are continued in the day to day operations of the marina now Operated by Mr. Barry Ford and his wife Carrie.

     

     FLMS's environmental sustainability begins with a Fish Hatchery established by the Marina Owners and the Department of Environmental Conservation.  We've added trees as well as new or improved green spaces. Our waters and our skis play home to a variety of bird species making the Marina a popular place for Bird Watching enthusiasts.  Our continued contribution to maintaining our environment includes the development of a Community Garden slated for the 2021 season.
