After a little co fusion about where the mooring was located in the harbor we got secured and went ashore. Showers, laundry, pump out all good.
Mooring are off town ferry dock which is conspicuous. Dinghy in to dedicated dinghy dock near small park.

easy to find mooring....harbormaster was raised on vhf and cell and it was quick and simple. Mooring was fairly close to the south dinghy docks.

Very nice location and quaint area to explore. The Herreshoff museum is well done, if you like sail boats. Great restaurants. Nice relaxed vibe compared to Newport

Great stay! Hospitality and facilities are great at the Bristol Maritime Center. As with other reviews, it was a bit choppy with a good southerly breeze. Not uncomfortable at all. There is no commercial launch service. There are two dinghy docks with plenty of room to access different parts of town. Great for walking dinning and shops. Bristol by water is a great alternative in Narragansett Bay. Due to the lack of yachting promotion it's a gem for boaters.

Location is a bit exposed and winds will whip up wave action. There was no launch service and we didn't pay attention to that - use our dinghy. Otherwise, Bristol is an awesome location and great bars and restaurants.

People were great. Facilities were well kept. The dock is wide open to the harbor, so not a lot of protection.

Jennifer and the harbor patrol crews were great!

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

Mix up with the reservation but it got straightened out.

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

You make it very easy to get a mooring

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.
