About the Area

Greenport was first settled in 1682. The village was previously called Winter Harbor, Stirling, and Green Hill and was incorporated in 1838. Since the 18th century, Greenport has been a working seaport, boasting trades in the shipbuilding and whaling industry. Since 1844, the village has also been the eastern terminal station on the North Fork for the Long Island Railroad.

Many of Greenport’s older structures can be appreciated while visiting the Greenport Village Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Today, there are only a handful of commercial fishing vessels operating out of Greenport, but the tourism industry and recreational boating have grown substantially.

By land, Stirling Harbor is only a mile from Greenport's shopping district, and Greenport Maritime Museum. There is a nearby ferry to Shelter Island, and further east, in Orient Point, is the ferry terminal that crosses Long Island Sound to New London, CT. Eastern Long Island features 17 wineries, old-fashioned chandleries and general stores, restaurants with local seafood fare, cafés, a popular 1920's carousel, and many miles of pristine beaches.

By sea, Stirling Harbor Marina is located in the midst of some of the world¹s greatest cruising areas, including Sag Harbor—with plenty of restaurants, quaint architecture, and historic walking tours; Shelter Island - which is a tranquil community featuring 200 acre Mashomack Nature Preserve; as well as endless sheltered bays, anchorages and gunkholes for cruising and exploring. The area’s fishing is known worldwide.

Whether your visiting Stirling Harbor Marina for its quiet and protected port, or to be nearby to some of the world's greatest cruising grounds, you will find the same commitment to excellent service as any of Safe Harbor's nationwide locations.
