Terrific dock and dock master. A little tricky in and out if slip with pilings. But Dick master was right there helping us in.

John, the Dockmaster, always takes great care of us!

Dock is well maintained with plenty of room. John the Dockmaster could not be nicer and more helpful! Watch Hill is a quaint little village with some really nice shops. We enjoyed our lunch at the Anchor restaurant and had a splendid dinner & evening at the Ocean House, a must see when visiting Watch Hill.

The Watch Hill Docks are in a good location. I don't care much for the main office staff. John, the senior guy at the dock is very attentive and helped us out. This is a good place for a couple of nights where you can visit two different beaches. The docks are across from the 2 block street full of boutiques. Food is limited with one nice restaurant (Olympia Tea), bakery, deli, counter ice cream / grill place and a small sandwich / bar sit down restaurant. There is also the upscale Ocean House for fine dining that was very good

The dock master John is great. The slip is on Main Street Watch Hill a beautiful town.

by Gene M. - Verified user on Aug 04, 2022
Unbelievable. From the nail biter channel to the super welcoming, friendly and clear dock folks. Town is awesome. We have bikes so got to explore a lot.but many great places in walking distance. A+

… Very pleasant stay on the main town square. Recommend Olympia Tea Room Restaurant steps away from the dock.

Great location to Town and hotel. Needs restroom facility though. Tough for over one night stay.

10/3/2021 We had another great stay at Watch Hill Docks. Jimthe dockmaster is awesome. He guided us easily into our slip and got us squared away with power and a recommendation for dinner and the beaches. This is an awesome spot but should note they have no facilities. We had dinner at the Olympia Tea Room which was awesome. We definitely will be coming back in 2022.

Watch Hill Docks were just what we were looking for in a short visit. Both Dockmen were helpful & the town is right there with a great restaurant Olympia’s Tea Room.

by Patrick D. - Verified user on Sep 14, 2021
Great trip. My only complaint is that there are no restrooms or showers. It’s definitely a one night stay unless you have great shower on your boat…..we do not.

by James M. - Verified user on Sep 01, 2021
As always a great place!

by Steve T. - Verified user on Aug 30, 2021
Very helpful dock hands and nice facility.

by Ken C. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2021
Watch Hill, docks are right in the middle of the town. Dockmaster is friendly and helpful. Beautiful quiet location. No facilities at the dock due to restrictions by town.

by John G. - Verified user on Aug 23, 2021
Had a wonderful 2 night stay. Staff was excellent facilities very nice and was before all the bridges so no need to worry about waiting. Bring a dinghy as there is a great tie up in town which is very close.

Middle of town very convenient dock. Don’t forget the lobster rolls at Bay Street deli and a cocktail on the veranda at Ocean House. Too bad the deli is closed.

First visit and won't be the last! Friendly staff and great location

Couldn’t ask for better service or a better place to stay. Truly a special destination.

by Paul K. - Verified user on Jul 19, 2020
Great little boat basin right in the middle of town with a very short walk to a beach. No amenities. But, if you are self contained, it is perfect.

by Peter N. - Verified user on Jul 10, 2020
What an incredibly welcoming and helpful staff! They were extremely professional and did require notation of every guest in case it is necessary for contact tracing. If you want to be in the thick of watch hill, this is the spot!

Great location, lots of activity, nice beach. Walk to Ocean House

by james h. - Verified user on Jun 20, 2020
No showers and toilets, no hoses on the docks. $150 per night is too expensive for a marina with none of the basic amenities you would expect. The dock master is very nice and helpful.

by James C. - Verified user on Jun 15, 2020
This is one of our favorite locations. It’s such a pretty town and it’s so relaxing. John and Jim take great care of Watch Hill Docks. Staying with them is like staying with family. The location is key to enjoying every part of time including the beaches. We highly recommend this marina for any length of stay. John and Jim will take great care of you and you will have a great experience.

by Mike S. - Verified user on Sep 25, 2019
Very expensive, especially for midweek after Labor Day. No head, no showers. Power and water available. Dock personnel were great. We will not return because of cost.

by RIta L. - Verified user on Sep 23, 2019
We enjoyed our stay here. Jim help us tie up and was helpful and pleasant; convenient location into town however it is surprising for the dockage cost, that there are no toilet or shower facilities available, only water and power.

by Mikel P. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2019
Friendly helpful staff ,great location beautiful views!

by Rebecca L. on Aug 16, 2019
Great central location to access everything in Watch Hill, shops, eateries, and beaches are all easy walking distance. Scenic harbor. Docks are fixed/basic, however, no showers, laundry, recycling, or other amenities are offered here.

Fantastic place.. will be back!

by Frank M. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2017
Great place, but be sure you bring plenty of dock lines and long ones. Fender boards are a help. The docks are fixed and a slightly unusual set-up with finger piers not perpendicular to the main dock. There are no cleats so all lines go around poles. The dockmaster is very helpful, and knows the best tie, but you will need more gear than you are used to if you are normally at a floating dock with cleats.
