About the Area
Brewer Bruce & Johnson's Marina is less than one half mile from Long Island Sound on the marsh-lined Branford River. Branford was first settled in 1638 by the Mattabesech Indians and was initially called 'Totoket.' It is believed that the name changed to Branford as a namesake to Brentford, England. As a highly accessible port, ships traded lumber, livestock and produce among other items from the West Indies. Branford still offers excellent protection during stormy weather in its secluded harbor.
Today, Branford has six historic districts that are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and more than 20 historic homes and properties are listed on the National Register.
Branford's recreational facilities include several town-maintained parks and beaches owned by private foundations, hiking trails along Lake Saltonstall and a stretch of the Shoreline Greenway Trail, and 20 miles (30 km) of coastline. Cruises of the Thimble Islands depart from the Stony Creek dock, and seal-watch cruises take place in March.
The Thimble Islands, just three miles east, offer close cruising, while Brewer Bruce & Johnson's Marina’s central location along the Connecticut coast, is just 65 miles from New York City. The marina is only 25 miles to Plum Gut, which is the gateway to some of the greatest cruising in the world including Shelter Island and Peconic Bay. Port Jefferson is also just a short trip across Long Island Sound.
Brewer Bruce & Johnson’s Marina is a completely protected and secure spot on the quiet, marsh-lined Branford River. Only one mile from the center of Branford Harbor, you will find plenty of marina and dockside amenities, at our convenient location.
