We came to West Island from Cuttyhunk as part of our 'tour de Buzzard Bay'. The channel into the marina is narrow but well marked. There is a large mooring field once out of the channel. We didn't get a response on the radio so I reached Mary on the phone after 2 calls. She directed me to mooring #1 which is well protected to the south by the causeway but not especially scenic. We took advantage of their restaurant which was tasty and fun as they had live music. Be aware that the fuel dock has only about 5 ft. of water at low tide.
