Friendly launch service. Nice mooring gear. Easy walk to town. Just stayed a second time and the same great service. The launch driver made a special trip for us - many thanks.

NW wind makes the moorings exceedingly rolly. Launch service limited as well. Dinghy dock difficult to access. Otherwise Jamestown a great town

Between Dockwa and Safe Harbor Jamestown there was a screw up and the suitable mooring for us wasn't available when we arrived :(

Great place. Friendly. Very salt of the earth.

I came away from this stay with mixed feelings. First the good stuff: the launch service staff was attentive and responsive. They did a great job of handling a flurry of requests. In addition, the staff easily accommodated our request to stay an extra night. Now to the negative: the head and showers are a mess. The only showers are out of doors and protected only by curtains. The single head is in poor condition. The mooring field is very rolly due to weekend boat traffic in the Bay. It is also open to winds from the east which we’re prevalent the whole time I was there. We were uncomfortable during the day but things did quiet down some at night.

I'd stay again for sure. Thanks!

Great service and one of the prettiest spots in RI

Great experience at JBY. Lovely mooring field. Very nice facilities. Very friendly staff. Will drop in again.

This is a lovely marina nestled among the rock islands of southern Conanicut Harbor. It is very protected and among the more beautiful place to moor in the lower bay. On the day of departure I had a spot of trouble getting going and the staff was very attentive to my problem and helped me with the repairs so I could leave on time. Very happy with my stay.

Beautiful location and super friendly staff

by stimabida on Aug 08, 2021
Enjoyed our stay with you again - Friendly launch - A dingy ride to quaint & cozy Jamestown - GREAT spot for watching all of the Harbor Activities!!! Little rolly from the waves but tolerable. We will be back again sometime!

by brunonardone on Jul 25, 2021
Great spot. Great people. We'll be back.

by rfour56 on Jul 05, 2021
Outside of being in nature's washing machine from the wakes generated from everything from recreational to commercial vessels, the location was great. There are beautiful views and the SHM staff were very accommodating.

by legacy565 on Jun 25, 2021
Great service upon arrival. Launch showed us to our mooring hung around to ensure we got situated. A little rocky do to boat traffic and/or open water exposure.

by michel1030 on Sep 29, 2020
Very pretty harbor, view of Newport bridge, well-equipped moorings with two bow lines and a pickup stick. Launch service was great. Not far from the shipping lane so you do get a fair amount of rolling here. About a 20 minute (hilly) walk into town.

I just stayed 2 nights at Safe Harbor Jamestown Boat Yard. I’ve been to Jamestown before, but this is my first stay at JBY. My experience was excellent. I arrived in boisterous weather courtesy of Hurricane Teddy. Crew member Hallie kindly guided me to a relatively protected inner mooring next to an initially ominous big rock. I came to like it. The quarters were tight for my 34 ft sloop, but it proved to be an excellent mooring. The first night was quite bouncy, but view of NB East Passage and Newport was awesome, especially at night. The accommodations are hardly posh, but most adequate. I had use of their motorized dinghy after hours, which was most convenient. During working hours the staff was most accommodating with launch service. I spent one afternoon biking to Beavertail State Park. The scenery going and there was beautiful. Don’t miss this. I look forward to staying at JBY next cruise East. Cap’n Mitch Gilbert s/v Pleiades, Safe Harbor Pilots Point Marina, Westbrook, CT

Halle was awesome. Great guidance and great skills. Definitely will return.

We spent July & August at JBY. Top notch operation all around. Great facilities, service, and people.

Beutiful scenario , loved it

by lilamccain on Aug 13, 2020
Friendly, low key and beautiful spot for swimming and sightseeing with the rocks and birds and spell bridge in the distance. Take advantage of the launch rather than using the dinghy, as it can get breezy and Skip is full of great recommendations for sightseeing.

by berryzondag on Aug 06, 2020
Friendlyness and great service are the best words to describe this yard.

by tjlesser on Aug 03, 2020
Gorgeous location and the marina launch service is very friendly and helpful as is Ellen who replies to Dockwa inquiries. We’ll be back again and again!

by renedoz on Aug 03, 2020
Pretty convenient, we stayed on a Friday and it was hard to sleep because of noisy birds, wakes of boats passing by late, and loud music. The launch service was excellent and free! The views from the marina were stunning. We wished it would have been closer to downtown Jamestown.

by cdory28167 on Jul 17, 2020
We had a nice, relaxing stay. Great service from the staff, including prompt pickup from the launch. Very dog friendly. About a mile walk into town (along relatively quiet roads). The launch stops at seven, so plan accordingly if you’re out for dinner. The mooring field is open to the north and east, and an occasional wake rolls in from the larger ships.

by kenjo on Jul 06, 2020
The launch was great and timely. The launch operator was informative and friendly. There was only one 1/2 bathroom (unisex) and it was very dated. I did not see a galley that was described online. There was poor signage. The only showers we saw were 2 outdoor showers. There was a small deck with one table and one grill. It was positioned next to the boat launch which was pretty smelly at low tide. We had a nice inside mooring so the waves were minimal even on a busy 4th of July weekend. The view was picturesque from the mooring.

Nice stay for 2 days

by captaground on Jul 03, 2020
Very nice and full of dumplings.

by sailintegrity on May 22, 2020
Good people... safe spot to lay up.

by rllalbin on Aug 27, 2019
Great place to access or view all of lower Narragansett Bay activities. Boatyard shares their property with local homeowners association, so some areas are just for them. Nice scenic walk to the south facing coves & Fort Wetherill.

by pvgas on Aug 04, 2019
Good quality mooring, double pendant. Widely exposed to wakes. Spartan facilities. Beautiful views.

by rucasailing on Aug 02, 2019
Thanks to JBY for a great experience! The staff and service here are second to none! We will be back to visit again.

Nice marina, great location.
Marina Response:
Thank you! Glad you are happy with your stay ;)

by read2girls on Jul 06, 2019
The launch driver was nice. But the waterway was not well protected from waves. We came back to the boat to find the cooler upside down on the other side. AND a fire extinguisher detached and discharged on the flybridge.
Marina Response:
I am so sorry you did not have a favorable experience with us. We are exposed to the North East and unfortunately get some wave action with the summer thunder storms. Sorry again for the inconvenience, I have credited your card $50/1-night mooring. Thank you for staying with JBY.

by znstlysew9udz34bs788 on Jul 02, 2019
Very pleasant mooring, wonderful service with free launch. Gorgeous scenery, low-key. A little bumpy with winds from the north but if they’re not too strong it’s still great. Highly recommend.
Marina Response:
Thanks for the great review!

by hartley on Sep 16, 2018
Moorings are VERY exposed to the North, so it was lumpy! Launch crew was very helpful and friendly.

by verve on Aug 08, 2018
Stayed here one night mid-week. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I left a bag in town at a restaurant. When I asked management if I could pay someone to give me a ride, I was told “you don’t have to pay anyone for that.” First, the manager looked for a company vehicle to loan me! When she found that was being used, she asked someone to drive me in her personal car! Where does that happen these days?!? I would definitely return.

by johnkuonyyachtconsulting on Jul 13, 2018
Wonderful crew offering abundant hospitality.

by rib4marinas on Aug 30, 2017
The harbor master went out of his way to be as accommodating as possible. None of our group of 10 boats had stayed there before. We all agreed that we were looking forward to a return visit.

by gwlk99 on Aug 24, 2017
Service exceeded our expectations. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
