Very friendly and convenient to the harbor
Great place with a town that has great dining and shopping. Great for long walks.
Location instructions on radio a bit murky but that is the only minor criticism. I do not know why each venue cannot provide a link to a clear, dock/slip layout plan so a new person can easily navigate to the assigned dock or mooring! Makes life easier for the venue as well. Anyway, this is a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of the main Town dock and had nice facilities and friendly boaters. If you want busier downtown it is a very short dinghy ride away.
Very nice facility! We couldn't have had a better experience!
