Reviews for Northport Village Dock
Northport Dock, 2016-05-23
Captain: , Port Washington, New York (10)

Easy to tie up and be directly in town without any need for a taxi or a long walk. Nice selection of restaurants and some shopping. Not a huge town, but very picturesque and easy to access. Dockmaster was very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful., 2014-06-08

Saturday morning Farmers Market in front of the docks, live music, great shops and restaurants make this town dock a great place to spend the day.

Channel 09 for the Dockmaster and enjoy the free tie up until 5pm. $20 for dinner tie-ups. Over 7' of tidal rise and the dock is fixed (there's a floating dock for drop offs) so bring fenderboards if you have them. The Dockmaster will manage lines while you're gone. Be sure to tip well. They're friendly and excellent.

The town of Northport has nailed our market as boaters and I wish more towns and villages around this area would do the same.

There is no fee to stay over on the town dock after 1st of November although they actually stopped charging middle October already. We opted to stay over after realizing how far we had to dingy from the anchorage at the boat ramp. It turned out to be a great decision. We had dinner at the local Ritz cafe and it was outstanding. The people taking strolls around the town dock was extremely friendly and sociable. The dogs had a great run through the park which seems to be the local meeting place.

Fun Stop on Long Island, 2013-07-10

The new Dockmaster, P.J., was extremely helpful getting us tied up. Fixed dock, so be ready with those bumper boards! P.J. kept an eye on the boat and arranged the lines as the tide changed. Helped push us away as we were leaving. No chg for the day, as stated before, $1 per ft for the night. We were able to get an immediate pumpout - the quickest we have ever experienced!

As you dock, you become an instant curiosity and will become the focus of a lot of friendly attention. Lots of fun!

Did not find the laundromat, but Copenhagen's Bakery is NOT to be missed! Very friendly town, lots of interesting shops. Will be back.

Tricky on and off, 2013-06-09
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

Great little town to visit. Laundromat and Copenhagen bakery within walking. Water.
Free pump out. Dock gal will help tie up and watch lines as tide changes. Do not forget to tip. Power is not working so only $1 per foot.

However getting on and off boat with changing tides is down right dangerous, so we made this a day stop, and anchored at Sand City.

This is one of the nicest stays you will ever have. The town dockmasters are very helpful when docking and departing and will check your lines for you as the tide comes in and out. Be prepared to be very sociable. Walking the Northport dock is a past time for local residents, who are all very friendly. Docking during the day is free, the dockmaster will collect a few at night if you are staying over. Water and electric are free. The only drawback is the antiquated electric (as of the 2012 season). I have never been able to run my AC with out tripping the dock breakers. We usually end up using our generator. The town of Northport is quaint and not to be missed. The ice cream parlor still makes their own ice cream and chocolate easter bunnies. Snug Harbor on Scudder Ave is a very well stocked ship's store and repair facility.

Quite A Gem, 2012-08-10
Captain: , Niantic, CT (564)

Arrived with the threat of an approaching storm. Dock hand helpful in securing to the pilings. Easy walk up Main street with quaint shops and a plentiful choice of restaurants. The storm came in....flooding Main St over the sidewalks. The head dock master just happened to be our waitresses son....drove us back to our boat to help us get back aboard during the storm...leaving his cell # just in case we needed any assistance. Rode out the rest of the storm with shore power available then departed for our next destination.

Easy to walk into town where there is a good choice of restaurants including Maronis and Ritz Cafe for dinner, Shipwreck diner for breakfast and the John W. Engman Theatre for a show. Dave and family are wonderful people and can solve almost any mechanical problem.

First 2 hours are free if you get there early enough to secure available space.

Terrific Place to Stop, 2011-08-16
Captain: , Marietta GA (416)

We love Northport for its excellent restaurants and charming park. All this plus the convenience of coming to the town dock during the day, a 15 minute bus ride from the dock's parking lot each hour to a Stop N Shop supermarket, and nearby anchorages at night make this a favorite stop.

Water and electricity (30 amp fitting with two 15 amp breakers) are free. The town employed dock hands will adjust your lines (6' or more of tide and a fixed dock) and keep an eye on your boat. Though this is at no charge, they certainly don't protest receiving a tip for doing so.

During the summer the village has a Tuesday family night, which is a type of street fair, Thursday and Friday concerts, and a local farmer's market on Saturday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the charge for docking does not start until the events are over, even if they go past 8PM.

The price for docking only for the evening seems to be less than the $3 per foot advertised for spending the night. I was told $1.50 per foot and also that this isn't always collected, depending on the situation. I got the impression that returning from dinner at say 8:30 might not involve a charge, so it is worth asking.

The dock now charges April first til the end of October EVERY night- 8pm-8am, $3 a foot. Hopefully, it will not hurt the merchants of this friendly, beautiful village bustling with activity in the summer.

This town welcomes boaters with this great facility., 2011-01-15

Prepare to tie to pilings and allow for 5 to 6 foot tide. Water and electricity available. Town is charming with turn of the century buildings. Be sure to visit the ice cream soda shop.

Dock 'n' Dine treasure, 2009-07-15
Captain: , Bristol, Rhode Island (2664)

Our experience was midweek in July and things were sedate, but I can see where it'd be hectic on weekends. Easy tie-up at dock with help from village staff. No fee for couple of hours at dinner time. Two-block walk to several restaurants in a disarmingly quaint village. Thence to quiet anchorage out in the bay.

Beautiful Town, 2009-05-09
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (199)

This is an absolutely beautiful stopalong Long Island Sound. There is a Dockmaster on duty most summer days and a fee for dockage at night and weekends. Be careful when coming in by dinghy. Northport has not authorized a legal tie-up for visiting dinghys. Although you can get away with using the "reserved" numbered rings on the floating dock it is technically not allowed.
