Great view from the yacht club bar upstairs. Very welcoming bartender gave us the key to the gate and showers/laundry which were in good shape. We had trouble communicating with the fuel dockhand, but got it sorted out after we picked up the mooring ball. The fuel dock is not staffed on Mon & Tuesdays.

Nice little mooring area, and good grounds. Just watch yourself on the mooring pendants. I got sliced pretty good by the barnacles all over the lines. Gloves next time. :)

Best view in the area.

Spent a great two nights on a mooring ball at Pequonnock Yacht Club. Once reserved, I received a call from the vice commodore to answer any questions that I may have had, while explaining in detail what to expect. Very nice club, great facilities and very friendly people! We'll go back anytime if our schedule allows!

No one answered VHF call. No answer at club. No launch service. Terrible place to stay.

Five stars if they offered launch service. Nice club with friendly and welcoming members. Nice restaurant on premises. We didn’t explore much so I can’t comment about the area. No complaints, not a bad stop over if in the area.

I love this place. Laid back vibe, clean facilities. Helpful neighbors. Can’t wait to return.

Probably not fair to rate because it poured while we were there and never met anyone. One thing transients should know is there is no launch service so if you’re one a mooring, unless you want to stay on the boat, you might want to go elsewhere.

Great docks. Nice showers. Great club with a bar and nice people to relax with.

Easy in and out. Friendly staff. Well maintained moorings. Didn't answer VHF but answered phone instantly. Will be back!

Nice reception with clear instructions. Mooring are sturdy and from what we saw, fairly new and well setup. Picking up mooring lines is a breeze. Facilities are convivial, clean and everything is there for a beautiful overnight stay. Nice restaurent on the YC facility although we haven’t tried it ( maybe next time!) if possible, take a walk thru the neighbouring area, nice houses and calm streets. It is a big city stop over but yet, not too noisy or busy.

Great little marina! Friendly, welcoming and down to earth staff and club members! They don’t seem to monitor their radio but answer their landline and couldn’t be more helpful! We stayed on a mooring and were told to just pick up any one we wanted. They were not limited by size or weight so any one of them was fine for our 50 ft sailing vessel with 7 ft draft. Dinghy dock is between E and F dock on the far side of the restaurant, inside the break wall. If you go inside the Shell and Bones restaurant there is a door on the left side of the vestibule to go upstairs to the clubhouse. Drinks are cheap, people are friendly and the view is beautiful! Also a short Uber ride to Pepe’s on Wooster street where you can get the BEST pizza!

Great people and facilities. We walked to Yale and ubered back. We liked it so much we joined the club!! Be aware that there is not a launch service so kayak or dinghy on from the moorings.

Very nice Yacht Club with its own restaurant, bar and lounge area. Fancy restaurant on the first floor. Tons to see and do near by and locals were very welcoming.

They responded quickly to make the reservation but then they did not respond via Dockwa to find out where to pick up our mooring. tried 3 numbers until I finally got the club president who said pick up anyone. My charts say the water is very shallow (3 - 5 feet) so we picked one as close to the channel as possible to the channel for our 5 foot draft. Very calm the 1st night. Second night with 20 knot winds out of the southwest, we had swells making for a very rocky night. Clubhouse was nice with lovely views. Easy bike ride to downtown.

Nobody knows what to do when you arrive. There’s no slip assignment. We pulled up to what was a fuel dock and a member said we could stay. The dock is 20’ away from a noisy restaurant. The bartender was very helpful and showed where to get ice.

Good communication, deep water access to mooring but no launch and inevitably some noise from the highway. Excellent restaurant on premise.

by Joseph D. - Verified user on Jun 26, 2022
Friendly staff, Marina itself is understaffed with no one to help but overall a good value and would definitely come again. Great restaurant on site and the town nearby is just a 10 minute Uber drive for about $12.

by Alistair D. - Verified user on May 11, 2022
The hospitality and friendliness in the clubhouse were second to none - great night - and beer only $4! Docking easy with lots of space for our 42ft long 12 ft wide Malo 42. Only dropped a star because showers not working and no water on dock - maybe because early in the season. Also easy Uber or bus ride to Yale and Peabody natural history museum.

Beware. They do not sell fuel here. Otherwise very nice people and great facility. We'll be back

Great service from Robert, the marina manager as well as the staff. We have stayed one night on newly installed mooring during the Hurricane/Tropical Storm Henri. The bay is well protected from all wind directions. Very comfortable stay. Everyone at the club was very welcoming . Strongly recommending.
