Nice marina, staff was friendly. Pretty quiet during the last week of August as kids headed back to school in CT. Felt safe and facilities were decent.

Staff was great helping me dock. We had an exceptionally windy day and my kids are still a little young to be deck hands but MSW’s staff were super professional and helpful. Great family owned and ran business. We’ll be back!

Great visit. Nice facilities in this working shipyard. Easy 0.7 mile walk into town. Very helpful dockmaster (Nick) on arrival. Would definitely return here.

First-rate staff, to go along with a great docking area. Only one washer and dryer, but the showers have benches and hooks. Just a quick dingy trip from our dock into town. Will be back.

The staff is fantastic, very pleasant, and helpful, and the primary docks are in great shape. The facilities and transient docks are tired, problems with electricity, and the grounds were in the midst of repair,

Great place, great staff. Kudos to Nick very helpful throughout our stay. Grounds were kept neat and clean. Bathrooms are clean but could use an update. Looking forward to going back!!

Wonderful marina, close to Mystic Downtown. The staff are extremely nice and are responsive to booking requests. Booked it again for next week. Would love to make it our home marina one day.

Kenny is the best docklands!

by Dennis C. - Verified user on Jun 25, 2023
Great location. Easy access on south dock. Dockhand “”Kenny” was great meeting us at slip and getting us tied up. Lines already on outer piling made it simple. Facilities clean. Will be back

Nice place, neat town. Helpful staff

by Dave S. on Aug 24, 2022
I booked a transient slip for the night. When we arrive the assigned slip had 20 knot winds accompanied by 1+ knot current both blowing directly on the slip. The was no safe way to enter the slip without endangering my crew. I have 50 years boating experience and am presently an active USCG 100 Ton Master. The marina has so far refused to refund the fee for the slip.

Great staff, great location! All needed amenities. Pool is perfect also

by Joel G. - Verified user on Aug 15, 2022
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms and showers immaculate. The pool was lovely. The slips are to fixed piers and pilings, means you have to adjust lines a bit with the changing tide, but not a big problem. Unfortunately, although still advertised, there were no kayaks or paddleboards. Also, the addition of a snack bar would have made it a 5 star facility. But on the whole the stay there was very pleasant, the walk into Mystic not overlong. We would stay there again.

This marina and boatyard are a bit outside of the main part of town but within walking distance or a quick dinghy ride. The docks are in good condition as were the showers and restrooms and laundry facility. There is only one washer and one dryer and no place to sit and wait for loads to be finished inside (There are benches outside.), which was a bit of a problem in rainy weather. The pool was nice on a hot day in June. There are grills and picnic tables along the waterfront. The amenities are very nice, but the facility is a shipyard first and a marina second, so the outside areas are also driving/parking/work areas. There is no boaters' lounge.

by Kent S. on Aug 08, 2022
Very helpful staff especially with tying up to a fixed dock. Pool was super nice by the the river and there was a great market with in walking distance call the mystic market. Quick dinghy ride into town. Bathrooms were clean. My boat likes power and requires a buck booster to run the climate side for anything under about 217 amps….Same issue as my home marine but did not bring my booster unfortunately
