Don't enjoy crowds but want to be close to Newport? This low-key yard on the quiet side of Jamestown might be for you. It's the opposite of the Newport vibe...no throngs of tourists and no jostling with big-time yachts in crowded anchorages. Just a clean, simple, functioning yard that offers proximity without the chaos. Great place to hole up if hurricanes are threatening.

Good prompt launch service. Pleasant and helpful staff.
Currents and wind caused our moored boat to come in contact with another moored boat. Very frequent wake waves rocks the boat way too much.

Cold front came through during the evening and it was extremely windy from the North. The marina is totally exposed to miles of fetch from the North, so we were totally exposed to the big wind and large waves . We did not sleep at all, as our boat was pitching and slamming in the waves. Good news: the mooring held and had good chafe gear, So marina did their part. Obviously not the Marina’s fault.
by james r. on Jul 27, 2023
All good except the dinghy-dock situation mentioned by other reviewers. Transients are asked to use the Town Dock, which only allows for 30 minutes of tie-up time. Other Town Dock dinghy spaces require a town permit, which costs over $400.00. It was a time consuming, stressful experience trying get help from marina staff to help with this situation. Other than that, the Harbor itself is very nice

Dutch Harbor is our go to whether exploring Narragansett Bay or as a stopover going further east or west. It's quiet and laid back... but an east walk to pizza, supermarket, ICE CREAM, and more. It's also a further but easy walk to the busy side of Jamestown, where you can get the ferry to (much busier) Newport. Great staff, reliable launch, good clean showers and heads. Highly recommended.

Awesome as always. We are concerned as the price spirals up every year- we’d like use of dinghy dock at launch dock-
by Gregory R. - Verified user on Jul 09, 2023
Let me start by saying, " I love Dutch Harbor", beautiful tranquil atmosphere, lovely sunsets, great swimming area, excellent staff to include your friendly shuttle staff.
Now for the down side of Dutch Harbor, as I said in my past reviews of this Marina, they should have a designated dinghy area (dock) off the main shuttle dock for the patron's that rent moorings. Currently you have to use the town dock that only allows permitted dinghy's to tie up to the dock, non-permitted only have 30 minutes, If you were to walk into town it would take longer than the 30 minutes, so the thought is always on your mind about possibly being ticketed.
WIFI or the lack of it, they claim they have WIFI but I was never able to connect, very weak WIFI signal needs to be improved.
The marina needs an easy access area to fresh water off the main dock, without interfering with shuttle operations.
Finally, if the code to use the bathroom and showers is changed, you have to let your patron's know, I received the email with all the needed info (excellent) but the door code was wrong, unfortunately, staff had left for the day and the shuttle staff were out. I had to wait for someone to exit the bathroom in order to get in.
These are all small fixes, Every year I come to Dutch Harbor for my vacation. I could go to other more elaborate marinas but I don't. Dutch is the West Passage hidden secret. I would like to thank the Dutch Harbor staff for a great vacation week and I hope these small issues get fix.

Had a great stay over the Memorial Day weekend. The mooring was easy to find and easy to pick up. We like this side of the bay as it is not as rolly as the east side. Meaning fewer wave slaps and better sleeping.

This is our home mooring not just because of the gorgeous location. It’s well-run by really knowledgeable staff. Reliable, responsive, and skilled.
The off note is Scuttlebutt. Wrong menu: ice cream and some stale pre-packaged sandwiches trucked in. Wrong staff: attendant bizarre and erratic. We’re not alone in missing the oyster shack, or the tacos that preceded it.
by Will G. - Verified user on Sep 13, 2022
A mile or less walk on quiet streets to Jamestown shops, grocery stores and restaurants and great protection from wind and seas from almost all directions are the big positives. The full summer fare with off-season service hours left me feeling like I got less than I paid for. Also, cruisers should know that the town dinghy dock has a 30 minute limit for transients. If you want to dine in town you’ll need to check with the launch about tying off to the marina docks.

The staff and launch captains were excellent.
However upon returning to our boat that Saturday morning, following a trip to the shore, I found both my both my ignition keyed switches filled with glue (perhaps superglue) and I was unable to even insert my keys. I told the launch driver face to face and she was unaware of any other such problems.
I was forced to call Sea Tow and be towed back to East Greenwich Yacht Club with my wife and our two golden retrievers. A waste of nearly 3 hours. Most disappointing. Not to mention spending $70 on two new switches which I had to go to Narragansett West Marine, and install the rest of the day on Saturday......

Great place. Lots of good things to say. But they should provide campers with a ride to the dock at Fort Getty. It's about 20 yards further than their furthest mooring. It creates an awkward boundary between classes. I was tent camping at Fort Getty and had to swim to my boat whenever I couldn't convince them to give me a ride. Silly.

The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The day we arrived there was a strong, gusty SW wind and the harbor was rough. The staff found a different mooring than the one to which we had been assigned that provided somewhat more protection.
Their facilities are clean and very well maintained. My only suggestion would be for the launches to be operated more slowly, particularly at night since they throw a good size wake and can really rock your boat when they pass close by.

We had a pretty wet, foggy, windy passage from Noank, CT, but it was great to get into the bay and to Dutch Harbor. A harbor of childhood memories. With a forecast not at all what was happening we decided to stay another day and wait for some improvement. It was worth it! The helpful office staff connected with Dockwa and we were all set for this last minute additional day. Clean hawser, superior launch service, nice facilities and a fun harbor to go about in the dinghy. Glad the wind from the northwest was light because Dutch Harbor could be bouncy in a hard NW blow. Other directions should be fine. Friendly folks on our 15 minute walk to the grocery store and grinder place. A package store was just across the street. We put the dinghy on the mooring and took a nice cruise to see Wickford from the water, and then further north to look about Allen Harbor. Wonderful stay! The trip back had the wind at our stern and proved an easy passage.

We go back to Dutch over and over again because it is an amazing place to spend the night. Very calm and protected. The staff are helpful, experienced, friendly and professional. Can not give them high enough rating. I will just keep returning!!

This is a fantastic place to visit with extremely friendly and helpful staff. I had engine issues and they were able to diagnose and solve the problem quickly and with confidence. I cannot recommend Dutch Island Boat Yard enough.

Outstanding. We usually stay n the other side of Jamestown and this was our first time here. It was so peaceful- no rocking! The launch folks were super and the walk to town no problem. We will be back!

One of the best stays ever. Unlike a lot of places we have stayed were the mooring fee does not cover other amenities. Dutch includes launch service, bathrooms, showers and ever a cup of coffee if needed. We will definitely return.

Beautiful harbor, a short walk (or bike ride) to restaurants and the market. Staff was helpful and friendly. Launch drivers could try and throw less of a wake.

Dutch Harbor Boat Yard was very accommodating to our group (5 boats). They set up an area with picnic tables and chairs so we social distance when we got together each night. The launch drivers were very friendly and helpful.
by George D. - Verified user on Jun 18, 2020
After radioing in, we were met by the skiff at the beginning of the mooring field and led right to our mooring. We were given a fact sheet with all the info we'd need by the attendant. We had our own dinghy so we didn't use the launch service but there is a dinghy dock available and it's a quick walk into town.
by Christopher D. - Verified user on Jun 12, 2020
Very nice. Launch driver came out and showed us our mooring. WiFi was unable to reach the mooring. We tried repeatedly but were unsuccessful at using it, and called the office as well, who did not have any solutions or advice, but said it was working in the office.

To fonsecascott: I met friends on their boat there, took launch which was constantly on the move. You even complain about the wind blowing all day as if they control it. If your whining that you couldn't find your mooring, you don't belong having a boat in your bathtub. The staff there was the most friendlies and accommodating I've met. God created that location and weather, not the staff. If that's your complaint you couldn't find your mooring after asking 5 or 6 times, you obviously can't follow directions. Stay home.
by Scott F. - Verified user on Jun 08, 2020
Great stay but not as protected as I would have liked. Etc wind blew all day and night - also difficult to find mooring ball on your own. Most places show you by tender where it is. They did this after I radio’d 5-6 times and couldn’t find it

10/10. Comfortable and super clean onshore facilities without feeling like a large corporate marina. Launch service is stellar. Subject to some bouncing from chop if the breeze is up, but moorings are in great shape.

I have stayed at Dutch Harbor many times. They are always professional and accommodating to my needs. They are my first choice when staying at the mouth of Narragansett Bay.

I love staying at Dutch Harbor! This was a perfect weekend. Friendly staff, nice showers, quiet mooring. I like that it is away from town and enjoy the walk.

Best of everything for a quiet location, pretty & protected scenery, launch service, clean facilities, walking distance to town & grocery, nice folks, picnic tables and a taco shack!

I should say horrible to keep the crowds down, but truthfully, relaxing, easy walk to town, groceries, places to see. Friendly, helpful staff at all levels. A favorite place to sail to.

Nice harbor. Great staff. bathrooms are right off the deck, not very private, showers are limited to 5 minutes.

Very friendly staff here. Launch service is quick and reliable. Clean restrooms and showers. Picnic area is concrete slab with grills available. If you need ice, request from the launch. There is no dinghy dock. A bit of a hike to any restaurants and shops. If traveling with other boats don’t assume you will be near each other. It’s a big mooring field and our group of 4 boats were not anywhere close by. Mooring numbering system is confusing.

A warm welcome, block and cubed ice sold even at 9:00pm, and quality launch drivers—shout out to Zach!

Great launch and marina service. Beautiful setting. Taqueria ("the shack") was awesome. Just a little roll. We did get the mooring ball the farthest out ("D10"). I think if we were tucked in a little more, we'd be out of the current, in the "no wake" zone, and it would be 5 stars.
by Judy B. - Verified user on Jul 06, 2019
Showers and bathroom facilities are excellent, the harbor is fairly well protected, launch service is great and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. Also, it’s just about a mile walk to Jamestown. Perfect spot to stop!
by Nils K. on Jul 02, 2019
Great place to catch a mooring both for over-nights as well as for short stays. They have a launch and also a nice Dingy dock. Check with the launch driver when they close out for the day, especially if you go to a place to eat in Jamestown things can take longer than expected. Somebody mentioned that the Dingy dock has limited tie up times. That is only true for the town-dock. The marina itself have their own Dingy dock which does not have any time limits (it's a bit hidden away just below their little hut on the dock).

Very nice Harbor. Boat Yard and accomodations are well maintained and staff was nice. Only issue was the Self Pump Out that is tricky to use and staff couldn't help with directions. Luckily we got some assistance from other boaters on how to get the pump out to work. Would be nice if staff could give directions and assistance on the procedure.
The pump out is not part of Dutch Harbor Boatyard. It Is located to the south on the town dock. Sorry our driver that day did not have the correct information. We will look to ad directions on our welcome sheet for our transient customers. Thanks for joining us. Joe McGrady (Owner)

This is a nice quiet and calm harbor with beautiful sunsets. The staff at DHBY are very professional and accommodating. Launch service was fast. The bathrooms and showers, two each, are new and clean. There is also an outdoor enclosed shower that is very refreshing. Best of all is Tallulah's Tacos at The Shack for when we didn't feel like walking to the restaurants.

The new owners are doing a great job. They've built a new marina office, complete with showers and laundry facilities. The launch is courteous and prompt. And of course the location is amazing.
