Located five nautical miles from the Long Island Sound breakwater, Essex is tucked in a convenient, sheltered, and protected harbor. Essex Island Marina is situated on the west side of the Connecticut River just 100′ from mainland Essex, CT.
Offering 125 slips, with approximately 60 available for transient guests, our slips are located adjacent to the river on the east side of the island, and along North Cove on the west side of the island. For boaters who have a preferred location, be sure to notify us of yours when making your reservation.
