For three generations, Pirate Cove has been home, not only to vessels large and small, but to their owners and families as well. Located on the western shore of the Sakonnet River in scenic Portsmouth, RI, our marina is truly a pirates treasure, protected by a stalwart jetty and tucked away at the entrance to the cove.
Developed and run by the Kidd family since the beginning, we are a family-oriented full-service marina geared to enhancing your boating experience. The proof: many of our members have been with us since the beginning in 1967! We invite you to stop by, take in the view, and get to know us.
We think youll like what you find: a friendly boating community, a long list of services, reasonable costs, and expert help. Whether youre here for the boating season, winter storage or all year round, our staff will give you and your vessel the very best care and service.
Very peaceful spot. Good breezes in the afternoon generally come up the river. The marina is a bit run down. And advertises gas but did not have any on Saturday morning for our dinghy. Will start here again as it is a lovely spot but will make sure we have everything we need ahead of time.
We made a reservation just after midnight for a mooring for later that day via Dockwa. My reservation was neither accepted nor declined and I had to call Pirate Cove Marina in the afternoon about the request ... to find out that they didn't have a mooring available. I had asked them why they didn't decline my reservation to let me know and they shrugged it off because it was a "same day booking". I would argue that responding for those kind of bookings is even more important than for ones that are several days ahead of time. After all, boaters have to find other places to stay at night if a marina doesn't have the space. Not getting a response leaves you in limbo .... seems like a general Dockwa down-side in general. I finally got a reservation decline at 7:23 pm.
Staff is friendly and pleasant, Brandon, the owner is the best and always willing to help.
Very good marina and staff are excellent - WIFI is excellent and they offer a courtesy car. Though they seemed to be limited on transient slips at the end of season when they were busy stowing boats, they made room for us. Hope to return!
Friendly people offer a loaner car that is really helpful. It is a well protected marina with easy access. The only reason for holding back on a five star rating is the user friendliness of the shower stalls. They could use some well placed hooks to hang clothing and shelves in the stalls for soaps and such. Having said that the stay overall was considerably better than some of the more costly marinas.
