Beautiful place, nice people, and free bikes and carts make seeing the island fun and easy. Everyone we dealt with was cheerful and helpful. The docks in good shape, and we enjoyed the island very much.

Larry was great. Mooring balls were all reserved but he fit us in on the dock. Quiet night.

Stopped here for an overnight mooring in mid October on our way South for the winter. Got onto the ball and our generator was dead. Asked to move into a slip for the night, so we could plug in. First we were allowed to tie at the launch station, then told we had to leave. Called next door to Mansion Marina and they said sure. Club official then wants to know how much Mansion wanted. Maybe we could “make a deal”. I just left. This place used to be Great Kills Yacht Club and I guess this is new management. They need to work on their hospitality skills. Oh and I am a member of a reciprocating yacht club. We felt unwelcome and will not stop here again. Atlantic Highlands is a much better alternative with a nice town close to the dock.

Always clean, easy in & out, great floating docks and a reasonable price. What’s not to like? Oh the ferry can be a little noisy, but this is a great, well protected harbor. Easy walk into town for great dining, and a food and marine store walkable also.

West Wind and it’s people are always a delight. Newport is at its best in the fall, thinner crowds, better service in the restaurants. Easy walk to our favorite food and drink.

Protected harbor, lobster roll at The Chart Room, and best goodie bag on the East Coast!

Great place, but be sure you bring plenty of dock lines and long ones. Fender boards are a help. The docks are fixed and a slightly unusual set-up with finger piers not perpendicular to the main dock. There are no cleats so all lines go around poles. The dockmaster is very helpful, and knows the best tie, but you will need more gear than you are used to if you are normally at a floating dock with cleats.
