Great place to access or view all of lower Narragansett Bay activities. Boatyard shares their property with local homeowners association, so some areas are just for them. Nice scenic walk to the south facing coves & Fort Wetherill.

Best of everything for a quiet location, pretty & protected scenery, launch service, clean facilities, walking distance to town & grocery, nice folks, picnic tables and a taco shack!

Town moorings are directly off downtown, which is fine if you don't mind listening to live bands and dj's at night, or being close to the ferry. Launch service must be obtained through a separate company, namely Bristol Marine. Simple amenities are available inside the maritime center building, such as coin-operated showers and laundry.

Inefficient and average yard team. It has taken NEB almost a year to accomplish a work list on my 30 footer, and I have had to constantly check in with them to keep things moving. Several projects had to be replaced or done twice because they were handled so poorly the first time. They also drag projects out longer than necessary to rack up billable hours without notifying the customer. I've been regularly disappointed, and would not recommend getting work done here. Hopefully the new management through Safe Harbor will improve things - drastically.

Got a mooring here in a calm, protected location. Nice launches/launch service. Close to Dog Watch Cafe and easy walk into the rest of town. Nicest showers/bathrooms I've seen anywhere!

Stopped in here on short notice for a repair, and Ned's team had me fixed up, turned around, and on my way again in about 24 hours, which I greatly appreciated. Mechanic was prompt and efficient, dock girls were very helpful, and the docks themselves are the nice floating, composite type. Also an easy walk into town. I'll definitely stay here again.

Got a mooring here in a peaceful cove surrounded by wetlands. There is no launch service, but WHBY will provide you with your own rowboat! Walk to town is about 25 minutes each way. Very nice new clubhouse, picnic areas, indoor & outdoor shower options.

Watch Hill DocksAug 16, 2019

Great central location to access everything in Watch Hill, shops, eateries, and beaches are all easy walking distance. Scenic harbor. Docks are fixed/basic, however, no showers, laundry, recycling, or other amenities are offered here.

Overall location was good, easy access to Jamestown & dining options, good views, prompt launch service. Only issue was the mooring was really roll-y, like, non-stop. There's no protection from all the Narragansett Bay traffic, and I was constantly being "waked". It only calmed down after dark.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the four stars! We had an unusual amount of boats in the Bay this week with the Folk Festival, and the downside to that is the roll-y experience you had. We hope you will come back and stay with us again after the festival crowds have subsided.

Charmed! Original, family operated, low-key vibe. Sweeping views of lower Narragansett Bay, nice and helpful staff, and quiet beach. A little rolly during a north breeze, but otherwise well protected from the usual southwest conditions.
