Reviews for Stamford Landing Marina
not accommodating, 2013-10-04
Captain: , ft lauderdale (90)


I pulled into Stamford harbor with one engine. I could not reach the dock master on the phone or radio. I picked a T head and tied up. I went to the dock office to check in and the dock master was smoking in the office. He would not let me stay there because according to him I was in the channel. I clearly was not. The docks were old and falling apart. The location seemed good with a couple of restaurants nearby.




Good city stop, 2013-09-28
Captain: , New York, NY (440)

No answer on Ch 9, but Tom, the dockmaster, answered our phone call and guided us into a transient slip. Decent floating docks with water and power (we used water but not power.) Nice marina, local seemed friendly. Shower has plenty of water pressure and hot water. Facility seems to be well cared for. Two restaurants adjacent to dock--a crab/seafood place and a Cuban place. We ate at the crab place and had a decent meal. There's a little bit of noise from the restaurants plus lots of passers-by on the boardwalk. This is an urban stop, nothing tranquil or bucolic about it, however the activity all calmed down by midnight on a Friday night. Walked to the train station--about 15, maybe 20 minutes. Adjacent neighborhood seemed safe enough although definitely not the upscale part of Connecticut. All said, quite a bargain for $2/ft. Also, name of the marina has changed to Harborpointe West or something like that.



Great Marina, helpful staff, 2013-07-11
Captain: , New York, NY (34)

Overnighted on 7/6/2013. 24-hour access, clean bathrooms + shower, friendly staff. 15-minute walk from Stamford train station... closer 4pm-12am when the water taxi is running that gets you to the beer hall across the water. Paid $2/ft for 25ft sailboat



beautiful and good service, 2013-07-07

spent the night here for $2/ foot. next to awesome restaurants and good nightlife. I would def stay here again. The dockmaster drove us to town to get supplies. Top notch shop and great showers.



Well protected and a bargain, 2012-06-08
Captain: , Kenlake Marina on Kentucky Lake (47)

We stayed at Stamford Landing on June 7, 2012. We made a reservation that morning. Although a 40 foot boat, we were put in a 50 foot slip and charged only for 40 ft. at $2.00/ft which included electric. The marina is in the west channel and very well protected. It is well kept with floating docks in very good condition. The Crab House next door had wonderful bisque and lobster rolls and a great band on a Thursday night. We did not leave the marina premises so I cannnot comment on the surrounding area. Each marina dock has a locked gate for security.



Nice place to overnight, 2011-01-29
Captain: , Stratford, CT (250)

This is a cozy marina which at times has slips available to transients. It is located on a short boardwalk. There are several restaurants along the boardwalk including the Paradise Cafe, which overlooks the marina, and the aforementioned Crab Shell. There is a deli nearby as well. It's a long walk to Stamford center and the tran station, but more importantly, the walk is through a seedy neighborhood. You're perfectly safe IN the marina, but I would not recommend leaving the premises. As some have mentioned, the dockmaster Tom is a gem. The fee is a bit steep and the slips are tight to get into, especially for a sailboat.

At the Crab Shell restaurant/bar, they call it "cleat & eat." Lunch menu typical seafood...crab cakes, fish 'n' chips, burgers. Good eats, fair price. Lively in summer Friday afternoon with bar and tables mostly filled.



Easily the best, 2009-09-23
Captain: , Buffalo (1022)

I can't think of anything that could be improved on. A good example that an excellent marina doesn't have to be expensive. Dockmaster Tom is the best there is.



Great Dockmaster, 2009-06-05
Captain: , Great Island, Maine (313)

Well protected slips with convenient resaurants and a nice harbor walk (with a little work). However, what gives this marina a 5 star is the dockmaster, Tom. Could not have been more helpful, and interesting to talk to to boot.



Stamford Landing Marina, 2008-12-30
Captain: , Stamford, Ct. (47)

We arrived without a reservation in the midst of a summer Long Island Sound storm, around 1930. The only person that answered our VHF (ch 09) was the dock master who guided us into a slip and stood on the dock with a hand beacon and guided us in! Tom Thornton is the dock master, and he helped us to tie in. We wnted to go to a motel and he even waited for us called and got us a reservation and drove us. He picked us up the following morning and took us back to the boat with the NY Post paper.
This guy is an all star if there ever was one!

Marina is well designed and pretty much state of the art. Easy to pilot into the numerous available slips. Dockmaster (Tom) is very helpful. Two upscale resturants to choose from. Both have good food and service.

Docks are protected by key lock from a downtrotten neighborhood
