Nice facility with excellent wind and wave protection. Web site, hand-out welcome sheets could both use some updating: they show a Jacuzzi that's been closed for some time; a missing diagram showing location of numbered slips would be helpful; Cornelius Island mis-spelled. Promised weekend-morning donuts didn't show up, WiFi weak, dock hand not terribly helpful in docking/stopping 34-ft boat. Rest rooms, showers nice and clean. I'd come back.

Very good service, clean well-appointed shower rooms, nice access to a variety of restaurants and take-out places. But...the north mooring field has a lot of current running through it, therefore it was a roll-ly overnight, despite a very protected west wind. The occasional party boat late-night arrival and the pre-dawn fishing departures added wake turbulence that increased the roll. And we had Rocker-Stoppers deployed, to little avail.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the four gold stars despite the rolly. Much appreciated!

A bigger, less-weathered number on our floating dock would have made finding it a bit easier. Otherwise, fine.

For mooring reservations, bring your dinghy; there are no launch services anywhere in Wickford harbor. Wickford YC has half a dozen (barrel-shaped) guest moorings available, Just inside of breakwater and to the north of the channel. Very peaceful in a light northwest wind. Chief Steward Chuck was very helpful and courteous. Club facilities (shower, etc.) nice and clean. A few good restaurants/coffee shops near Town Dock, a 10-minute dinghy ride into the south arm of the L-shaped harbor.

Booked two nights in a slip (non-floating dock). After first night, was asked to move to another spot on very short notice, as that numbered slip had been promised to another, part of a group that wanted to be together. Hectic move since new occupant had already arrived and was circling in harbor. Just as well...the 'together' group partied heartily until after midnight on a Friday night. Loudly. Very loudly. Next time I'll take a mooring.
