Westport Harbor is a beautiful traditional New England Harbor. The shuttle over to the Back eddy Restaurant was awesome. Don't count on anyone setting up your electric and water and dock lines like most harbors. There is a beautiful beach within walking distance. We would visit again. Seas were 1 to 2 feet in Buzzards Bay. As we approached the harbor inlet the winds out of the SW picked up. We saw rollers that increased in size as we approached. The exiting current was intense and a 8 plus ft crashing wave hit our boat broadside and then larger ones were on our stern. It was a harrowing experience to say the least. The current at the yacht club was 6 knots making docking difficult. The harbor entrance has two large bodies of water emptying into a very small inlet. So be very careful entering the harbor after High Tide, especially if the wind is blowing in offshore.
We enjoyed our stay. The floating docks are tops. It's less than 1/5 mi. from downtown. So you have privacy, yet are close to the action. We had dinner at Belle's cafe and it was excellent. Open for dinner on weekends only. The only downside was they charge for a pump out.
The only thing better than the marina itself, are the owners; Dave and Ned Kaiser. Service is their middle name. We wouldn't have our boat anywhere else. The marina is well protected and an excellent location to boat Buzzard Bay, the Islands, Cap Cod or Newport RI. The town of Mattapoisett will boat over and pump you out on request.
