Great marina - friendly staff and great amenities (although showers could use more water pressure). Love the on-site coffee shop for a bite in the morning and fun that there’s mini golf too! Short walk to the beach.

Another great stay at NCM, Austin was a huge help with the lines and hook-up's on arrival and departure. I only wish I could get a slip there for 9/16-9/17. But they are preparing for their big boat show the following week. Andy Q

We just returned from our second trip to Norwalk Cover marina this summer. It was wonderful. The dockmaster, Jon, his assistant, Austin, and their staff are professional and first rate. The marina is well run amd has great facilities for yachts and smaller boats. Very highly recommended.

Great place with first rate staff. Showers are in need if a serious upgrade. For these prices current facilities would be better than these 1980s editions. Dark. Stalls don’t even lock, etc.

Lovely marina. My favorite floating docks as they are nice and high so I did not need a step to get on and off my sailboat (high freeboard). Great ship's store and boutique. Great Galley cafe with awesome view of Norwalk River/Harbor. Only downside was that the dryer died just after I put a load of wash in, but with the great breeze we hung a clothesline and dried in the cockpit of our boat. A short walk to Nik's, a 40+ year favorite from when we lived nearby. So sad Nik's is closing after this season.

Marina Response:
Laura, thank you for the kind words despite your inconvenience with laundry. We hope to see you again soon and you keep us in mind after Nik's closes!

Very nice people. Our reception was flawless with a quick and helpful response from the dock master and crew who put us in a lovely spot. Pretty, well manicured grounds that felt secure with clean bathrooms. There’s a cute cafe good for breakfast and lunch and places to grill. Within easy walking distance is a nice beach, shady park, a well-kept mini golf course and two restaurants. The on-site shop is spacious and has a nice selection of boating tools and gear as well as the gifty stuff. If you need a supermarket of any kind, this will require a taxi.

This place is great! My first visit was for the Norwalk Bot Show- they’re outfitted with four travel lifts, a great ship store, small cafe and a HUGE fuel dock! Today I had an axopar I sold to a local client, launched there, fueled up and it was a flawless process- such a pleasure to work with these guys! Even with these covid 19 / corona pandemic restrictions, the staff was pleasant and super professional!

Our first time here.... thought Norwalk would be much more commercial (similar to Stamford and Bridgeport) because of the large power plant which is an eyesore. But in reality it's quite recreational and pretty. Very friendly & helpful staff. Nice marine store and surrounding area. Many services onsite for maintenance or repair needs. Would definitely come back again.
