About


Introduction:

Tucked in next to the Groton-New London Airport, Bakers Cove is located off Fishers Island Sound east of New London Harbor. Inside Bakers Cove you will find a large field of moorings and two marinas. One of the marinas makes its facilities available to transient guests, and both of them have haul-out facilities and shoreside marine repairs. The proximity of the Groton-New London airport means you will likely hear some small civil aircraft taking off at odd hours, but there is no major jet service here, so the inconvenience is minimal.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 12372.

From Fishers Island Sound, pick up the New London Ledge Lighthouse (flashing white and red every 30 seconds; horn) about one mile southeast of Avery Point (Avery Point is on the west side of Bakers Cove). After reaching the New London Ledge Light, set a course for flashing green buoy “1” at the west end of Bakers Cove, but be sure to honor and keep a sharp lookout for the series of ledges and rocks (marked by unlighted nun and can buoys) on either side of the channel when heading towards Bakers Cove from New London Ledge Lighthouse.

Once you have cleared flashing green buoy “1,” leave red nun “2” to starboard, and then head into the cove past quick flashing green light “1A” on the west breakwater. Depths range from four to six feet inside the breakwater and you will see a large mooring field to starboard. The marine facilities are on the north shore of the cove. Call ahead for transient reservations if you plan to tie up for the night, or just grab a free mooring buoy otherwise.
