Naval Station Mayport is one of three major Navy installations in the Jacksonville area. Since its commissioning in December 1942, Naval Station Mayport has grown to become the third-largest fleet concentration area in the United States.
The base is located at the mouth of the St. Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean near the small fishing village of Mayport, Florida, and near Atlantic Beach, Florida. The warm climate here makes it ideal for outdoor recreation year-round, including boating, camping, fishing and water sports. Although Jacksonville has nearly 1 million residents, including 225,000 with Navy affiliation, the population is spread over a large geographic area, providing ample residential areas.
