Very nice mariner facilities. Plenty of dining options within walking distance of the dinghy docks.

Very good marina and staff. Improvement needed on internet service at transient dock.

easy to find mooring....harbormaster was raised on vhf and it was quick and simple.

A very pleasant surprise. First time in Bristol. There is a lot to do. If Newport is busy, Bristol is a great alternative. Lots of live music and great restaurants. Very boater friendly, but no fuel.

The "slip"we were promised turned out to be an outside floating dock completely exposed to the fetch from Narangansett Bay coming into Bristol Harbor, so it was completely unacceptable because of the wave action. We opted for a mooring which was so far out that is was very uncomfortable. I would NEVER recommend Bristol Harbor to anyone. The "harbormaster" was off on vacation or "gone home early" in the middle of the weekday in August! WHAT A RIPOFF.

Good mooring tackle, rolly with prevailing southerly winds.
