This marina is the best - change your plans and stay here! They have everything: great location; well-equipped ship’s store (or will get what you need); fun art gallery; wonderful restaurant; and amazing sunsets. More important, they have the most friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff. They only know “yes”. We took an extended sail vacation and stayed with them twice. Our plans changed a bit and they were always helpful when we needed to adjust dates. Stay here!
Classic boat yard - they make the Shelter Island Runabout (favored by Billy Joel) and has a great reputation for yacht maintenance (fortunately we did not need). We loved Coecles Harbor, and they are at the end of it - be brave about shallow water. Location is amazing - gorgeous coves, etc. We could dinghy to the kayak rental 'next door' and had a great day exploring the area. This was after a week on the water, so we appreciated the fuel dock, head pump-out, fresh water, and laundry - boat and crew refreshed! There are bike and car rentals for getting to town (a couple miles away) or for exploring the island by land. There is also a small chandlery.
The Harbormaster's transient moorings are wonderful - especially when it is blowing from the southwest! Once in town, the Maritime Center is a joy! Showers; laundry; ice; local information; knowledgable and friendly staff.
Great facility - wonderful people! Had never been into Westport before - staff was encouraging - navigation straightforward. Amazing location - gorgeous beach a short dinghy ride. All shore services were all we needed: showers, ice, fuel, and a sweet ship’s store. Launch driver even offered to bring us to the local restaurant!
Recently delivered a boat from Boston’s north shore to Narragansett Bay - needed a convenient location after transiting the CC Canal. We were totally impressed! More than a simple accommodation for our journey, Parker’s had everything! More important, everyone we dealt with - reservations staff, dock hands - was friendly and accommodating. Several friends and family stopped by and were also welcomed. This trip was for convenience, the next one will be on purpose!
Perfect location; professional, courteous staff! Wonderful amenities!
Fabulous facility, services, and staff - at a critical location! This is the harbor of refuge if you are waiting for a favorable tide to transit the canal to the west (Ebb) or need to rest after an east (flood) passage. The docks are well laid out, in great condition, and well-equipped. There is an accessible fuel dock and pumpout services are handy. The shore facilities are completely new - harbormaster office, restrooms, and terrific restaurant! All you could want.
Staff was friendly and accommodating - got a great slip. Location on lower Thames Street is perfect for many shops, restaurants, etc. Some issues: bathrooms need some renovations; marina is located on same property as a restaurant and bar, which were quite loud, until late.
