Reviews for Rex Marine Center
Good stop for SONO, 2016-08-10
Captain: , Marthas Vineyard (506)

We're hanging out here for a few days because we felt the need for some 30 amp. Primarily a seasonal marina, its a great place, clean washrooms & showers, wifi, easy walk to West Marine, a bakery, lots of restaurants and the acquariam, very helpful manager and staff, friendly people on the docks, and very reasonable rates. More secure tie up than the visitors dock and better price too. Not sure if they have many of transient slips, but give it a try! We're happy customers



Outstanding Service, 2014-08-04
Captain: , Albany, NY (100)

We were seeking a location close to SoNo and this fit the bill, 5 minute walk, nice facility although definitely a more working marina (busy) than their sister marina Norwalk Cove. The staff were wonderfull especially Denise who handled our reservation. Check out the SoNo Seafood House 2 doors down, outstanding food.



Working Boat Yard, 2012-09-03
Captain: , Michigan City (349)

We spent 8/9, 8/10, and 8/11 avoiding storms. Rex Marine is a very active boat yard and had many services including a shuttle service. We had been running ahead of storms after leaving the East River. We had tried to contact several marinas since we did not feel comfortable anchoring with the forecast. Lots of things to do including a museum, lots of restaurants and entertainment. The marina gave us some discount since we stayed for two extra days waiting for the storms to pass.



Authorized Zodiak Repair Facility, 2012-04-12
Captain: , Milford (180)

If you need any work done on a Zodiak from valve replacement to a new tube, they can handle it as an authorized repair facility-only one i have found in LI sound.



REX Service, 2007-07-11
Captain: , Norwalk, CT (90)

REX Marine owned by the Gardella family is one of the better service yards in Long Island Sound as noted by their high rating in offshore magazine as #3 overall in the NE. You will not find much in the way of cruising amenities here but if you are lucky enough to get a slip here the staff will make sure you have all you need to stay on the water for the season. They have very few transient spaces available and would most likely be avaialble on a first come basis but the close proximety and security provides a welcome base to explore all the great restaurants and museums in So. Norwalk.
