We have a customer looking at setting up a wifi solution in their marina so that their clients/slip holders can have wifi access.
Iit's a fairly big marina with around 300 slips. The goal for them is to sell this service to their slip holders and provide unqiue passwords to each client. It will also be nice to have some kind of measure where you can have a single user connected at a time.
Wiring is not really an option since its by the lake and all outdoor so we would like to see wireless options for the access points.
The main internet will be located in the office area.
I have attached a map that gives an idea in terms of the space we need covered.

Welcome to the community!
Look into AirMAX products for wireless bridges and use UAP AC Ms with UMA-D Antenna or UAP AC M PROs for the WiFi coverage.

If you can pull shielded copper or fiber to each finger, it'll really improve the overall bandwidth/cut the noise.
A fair warning, this installation is going to be expensive and doing it right will not be cheap.
Multiple PowerBeams or a full-duplex/high bandwidth AirFiber cousin to feed back to the main office at a minimum.
You'll be looking at providing 15mbps per boat - assume everyone wants to watch Netflix every night.
On the network itself:
I can't remember the name, but some hotels generate a unique code for every guest that expires after X amount of time.
It's a bit of a pain on Windows, but 802.1X/Radius would be the best for long-term use.
Client-side AP's - 30 boats/devices per AP is ideal (assuming half 2.4 and half 5ghz) but you'd be looking at 50 clients in some areas.
AC-Mesh - Outdoor rated, minimum 4 AP's per finger
XG series - Expensive but with high-density in mind.
