The launch was great and timely. The launch operator was informative and friendly. There was only one 1/2 bathroom (unisex) and it was very dated. I did not see a galley that was described online. There was poor signage. The only showers we saw were 2 outdoor showers. There was a small deck with one table and one grill. It was positioned next to the boat launch which was pretty smelly at low tide. We had a nice inside mooring so the waves were minimal even on a busy 4th of July weekend. The view was picturesque from the mooring.
Good people... safe spot to lay up.
Great place to access or view all of lower Narragansett Bay activities. Boatyard shares their property with local homeowners association, so some areas are just for them. Nice scenic walk to the south facing coves & Fort Wetherill.
Enjoyed our stay - Friendly launch - A dingy ride to quaint & cozy Jamestown - About a 30 minute walk to the Fort - GREAT spot for watching all of the Harbor Activities!!! Little rolly from the waves but tolerable.
Good quality mooring, double pendant. Widely exposed to wakes. Spartan facilities. Beautiful views.
Thanks to JBY for a great experience! The staff and service here are second to none! We will be back to visit again.
Nice marina, great location.
The launch driver was nice. But the waterway was not well protected from waves. We came back to the boat to find the cooler upside down on the other side. AND a fire extinguisher detached and discharged on the flybridge.
Very pleasant mooring, wonderful service with free launch. Gorgeous scenery, low-key. A little bumpy with winds from the north but if they’re not too strong it’s still great. Highly recommend.
Moorings are VERY exposed to the North, so it was lumpy! Launch crew was very helpful and friendly.
Stayed here one night mid-week. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I left a bag in town at a restaurant. When I asked management if I could pay someone to give me a ride, I was told “you don’t have to pay anyone for that.” First, the manager looked for a company vehicle to loan me! When she found that was being used, she asked someone to drive me in her personal car! Where does that happen these days?!? I would definitely return.
Wonderful crew offering abundant hospitality.
The harbor master went out of his way to be as accommodating as possible. None of our group of 10 boats had stayed there before. We all agreed that we were looking forward to a return visit.
