Really unique experience! I remember staying aboard the battleship as a kid, but my husband had never visited, so I figured what better way than by water? The harbormaster manages the moorings, and he couldn't be nicer. He and the gentleman who maintains the moorings for him were incredibly welcoming and let us know where to go (and where not to). Fall River's waterfront seems to be making a comeback, and the area around the battleship is totally fine. It's a bit noisy with the Braga Bridge and Rte195 right there, and if you're into places with lots of amenities, Battleship Cove probably isn't for you since you just get the mooring and access to the dinghy dock. However, it's really cool to spend the night with just a few other boats and a battleship and I definitely recommend a visit!

Marina Response:
Thank you very much for your kind commments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your next visit. We are trying very hard to make sure that boaters have a very pleasant stay when they visit Fall River. In the near future our "City Pier" facility will begin construction and we will offer many new amenities (showers, water, etc.). Thanks again, and we hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Bob Smith Fall River Harbormaster 508-207-7730

Conanicut Marine was fantastic! Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean (honestly, they had the nicest showers I've seen while cruising), and the location is perfect. It's a super quick walk to the Jamestown restaurants, the Jamestown/Newport ferry leaves right from their dock, and the view of the Jamestown Bridge and Rose Island Light is awesome. And the icing on the cake - they'll drive you to the grocery store to provision! The store is within walking distance, but it's so much easier to not have to lug all those bags back to the boat. We liked it so much, we decided to stay three nights instead of the one we initially booked. We'll definitely be back!

This is the second time we've stayed at Port Jeff Yacht Club, and we've found the staff to be friendly and helpful both times. The launch is reliable and the hours are great. Looking forward to visiting again next year!
