Best location on Block

by colleenpate on Sep 13, 2017

Location and floating docks were fantastic. Maybe because it was after labor day ours was not the typical experience. Upon arrival there was no one on the dock to assist with docking due to the fact that all the staff were busy with scooter rentals. When we went in and asked for assistance the young lady that came down was amazingly friendly and helpful and very competent. We also were not aware showers required tokens, and they were out of them..... We will give them another shot next time we head to Block Island and perhaps our expectations are more realistic for an off season stay.

This isn't really a marina. There are no facilities, no toilet, and certainly no showers. There is a small straight dock without finger piers, with a few pilings and space for 6 to 8 boats. Basically a place to stern dock, get power, and raft to a neighboring boat.

This space, behind the rear junkyard of a moped rental shack is run by Breezy, a confident, very competent dock hand. Breezy will get your boat secured, without any interest in your preferences or willingness to raft to the 65-foot behemoth she blithely grinded in place next to you.

Block Island only floating dock. Breezy was very helpful pulling in to the dock and very friendly. Even called us to make sure we was ok because we was running late. Definitely would return here

Breezy is a fabulous dockmaster with wonderful skills and a calming demeanor. She makes getting in/out a breeze! It is rare to find someone as professional as she is. The marina itself is convenient, perfectly located and has a floating dock.
