This has to be one of the most friendly Marina we've experienced. very clean, with great amenities definitely worth a visit.

Christopher B.

Historic. Quaint. Quiet. Clean. Invigorating.

Dawn O.

Beautiful marina. Has tons of lawn games (corn hole, volleyball, can jam, etc.) And a pool. Little shuttle gets you to the main land for free. They have a dog walking area and a great view of you're on the outside docks.

Jess H.

Great destination from Long Island NY family & adult boater vacations 1970's thru 90's! 28' - 42' yachts!
