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.
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.
