Great location. Short walk to Old Harbor restaurants and shops. Easy access to world class fishing...it doesn’t get any better! New floating docks and shore power connections were perfect.
Justin’s dock hand crew were always there to assist as needed. Shower facilities and restrooms at the Oar Restaurant are old and crowded but the head on the boat is new and a much shorter walk. Will be back.

Although price went up the service always great. Young Mr. Will very helpful as in years past.

Justin and his crew are simply the best. I've been staying at the Boat Basin for twenty years and this years improvements are great. This marina has old fashion charm and has retained its wonderful character - truly a great place to stay while in Block.

Very good improvements with the new docks. Cleats could use a bit more thought - they are not always in the right place. I love the 10pm quiet time - I spend a lot of time with my grandchildren and the loud music and partying into the wee hours was always a problem. I'm looking forward to more improvements - seems the new owners are committed to make this a great experience (although it's really good now)! I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and look forward to going back

Marina took on a new life with new docks and electric. Dockhands were very helpful and couldn't have done more......

Justin and staff are fantastic, always standing by ready to help. The new docks were fantastic with ample power to run everything we needed on a larger boat. Always a great time, we’ll be back again and again.

Great stay! Dock staff helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Nice new docks. Never rafted which is great especially on a holiday weekend.

Great dock crew, great location. Floating docks with no rafting. We have been coming here for 15 years. Justin and his crew run a great marina !

Dockhands were the most Amazing at any marina. New docks were very nice and location was great. The not so great were electrical posts not working, no WiFi and no gift bag. Would have expected this at $6/ft.

We enjoyed the new docks, like that you have ice available. The showers & toilets need up-dating.

Marina upgrades will disappoint you if you have a 2006 or older boat. New power upgrades will leave you powerless and you won’t find out until you plug in. Started 4th of July vacation with reservations booked 6 months ago only to find alternative docking. Thank you Payne’s!

Love the new floating docks! New management, old staff, all doing a great job!

Great service and facility! We love the place!

Everything was great except the showers. They were never that good, but they have gotten worse with the new owners. The water is not hot and the coin system malfunctions. It is dirty and there is hardly any place to put your towel. Please fix this as I plan on returning later this summer.

Our favorite spot on Block Island. Justin and team always deliver excellent and friendly service. Only complaints are the showers. Men's could use some hooks and I'm told the women's needs an outlet on the shower side of the curtain so you can dry your hair without being out in what is also the bathroom area for The Oar.
by dstrang on Jun 10, 2019
YOu guys have totally stepped up your game - friendly, professional service and love the new docks. Now if you can get the Oar to serve breakfast - or at least coffee life would be perfect.
Cheers - Dave

Docks being upgraded. Helpful staff. Great location
by captew on Jun 29, 2010
You can't compare the luxury and family atmosphere of this marina to any other. The staff is always able to help. NO RAFTING!!!! Thank-you for that. Rally is a Block Island institution w/ all the info you could possibly need. Worth the wait, worth the money!! You will never have a nicer cocktail than overlooking Great Salt Pond from the deck of the Oar Restaurant. Bring your oar to hang up and join the crowd. Sneak back in the fall and enjoy having the island to yourself.
