THE WATCH HILL BOAT YARD offers unsurpassed access to Little Narragansett Bay and the ocean beyond. Enjoy breath taking BEACHES, extraordinary FISHING grounds, and the picture perfect VILLAGES of Watch Hill, Stonington Borough, and Mystic, the latter two in Connecticut. On the horizon are equally SPECTACULAR DESTINATIONS including Montauk, Block Island, and Narragansett Bay- the gateway to Newport, Jamestown, and a host of other towns suburban to Providence, along the shoreline of the Bay. Just beyond the horizon are Buzzard's Bay, Cape Cod, MA, and its off-shore Islands, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
I was not assigned a mooring, and going through the channel at low tide was very challenging. We hit bottom with a draft of 4 1/2 feet in the middle of the channel.
We had a great 3 days stay at WHBY. Very friendly and helpful staff, spotless restrooms and showers, terrific facilities including gas grill, picnic tables, lounging chairs . We will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful Marina and setting. Office staff are great and even called me ahead of time to discuss the slip which was a bit tricky just to make sure I was good with it. Very clean nice bathrooms and beautiful grill spot etc. we will definitely be back if they let us ! Uber is a bit difficult to get in that area just FYI about a mile down to Watch Hill center.
We had a great time at Watch Hill Boat Yard--super nice people, and the heads/showers were first rate!
What a clean marina! Great facility and friendly staff.
Friendly service and very clean bathroom and showers
Gorgeous location, beautiful boathouse with great facilities. Staff is friendly and available. Showers are large and pristine clean. Read the charts and tides carefully, the approach is extremely shallow at some points!
Our stay at WHBY was excellent. It was the first time my wife and I stayed overnight at a marina, the first time using Dockwa and a sea trial of our “new to us” express cruiser. Laura at WHBY was an excellent host, providing us great instructions for our after hours arrival. The facilities are top notch and the marina allows easy access to Watch Hill. I highly recommend to Watch Hill Boat Yard.
Very nice marina. Easy walk to Watch Hill. Nice showers and bathrooms. Lisa was very helpful. Beautiful peaceful location. We had a great time!
Very pleasant. Good comunication from them about facilities and mooring location. Lisa was great to deal with. Nice spot where you are far enough away from river traffic to enjoy watching it, but not so close as to be bothered by it.
We enjoyed our two nights on a mooring. The communication ahead of time with a depth chart and channel instructions were helpful. The facility ashore is superb- very clean and new. The staff were super nice. Although we could have walked to Watch Hill, we used our dinghy for the short ride by water. Lunch at the Ocean House and an afternoon on Napatree Beach were divine!
Beautiful facility, friendly staff.
Great place. Really helpful people!
Beautiful marina! 20 minute walk to the Watch Hill village. Kind staff. We had a problem with our motor and they helped us through it... bathrooms and showers were very new and immaculate. Excellent, quiet stay
Watch Hill’s best kept secret. Wonderful, cozy place, nested in a tranquil cove. Spotless facilities, friendly staff. Thanks for the experience!
Beautiful location, great facility and staff! And an easy walk into town. Take extra care rounding R "20"at Pawcatuck Pt.
Challenging approach. Well worth the effort. Great people and very nice short side facilities
I was a little concerned that the wash from the Pawcatuck River would make for an uncomfortable stay. I was very wrong. We had a quiet night and the cove was extremely peaceful. Our reservation was made at the last minute, but upon our arrival the staff was ready for us. It was a wonderful alternative to Watch Hill Harbor.
This marina is beautiful, lots of wildlife around and everyone very friendly. The staff are friendly and Watch Hill is only 1 mile walk as well as the Cooked Goose restaurant for wonderful breakfasts. The marina was a bit of a challenge to find and on weekends they are not fully staffed so plan ahead and know where you are going. The numbers of slips are not visible by the water so you have to count the pilings and the docks are fixed as well as floating so it is not a guarantee that you will get a floating dock, be prepared for extra lines. I think docks all have ladders on "C" except 15 C so if you come at low tide...it can be challenging. Red nun 3 is aligned with channel markers but I used red 4 and then cut in to the first channel marker.
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.
the place was awesome and very helpful, cant wait to get back
Lisa and the team at WHBY sent me a confirmation email and another with two attachments, one showing the location of the channel and navigation hazards and another with a map of the mooring field. Very helpful! Their transient moorings are adjacent to the channel into the marina so that means some wave action and noise. Otherwise, the location is beautiful with views to the west of Watch Hill and undeveloped land across the Pawcatuck river.
Very friendly staff and facilities were impeccable.
Nice secluded area. Great staff. Hard to maneuver around marina.
Nice folks. Clean, well run, marina. Docks were in great shape
The folks at the Watch Hill Boat Yard couldn't have been nicer. The place is just the right distance from town to make for a leasurely walk back and was peaceful at night. I will definitely go back.
