Any info on Northport public dock?

I'm crusing to Northport on Tuesday. I heard there is a public dock there. Anybody know the price and facilities there? Or any alternatives?

You need to specify location with questions RetCo...fortunately I can see where you are and you are referring to Northport LI I believe.
The water is too shoal for a public dock for most sailboat there but Seymour's has very nice moorings and launch service there or you can simply anchor out and dinghy in.

The town dock as available. However, at low tide the depth is around 4-5'. Also, the docks are fixed, not floating, so at low tide it's a long climb up to the dock. It is pretty cheap.

If you want a marina, Britannia is at the south end of the harbor. They have excellent facilities including restaurant, pool, showers, etc. It's a bit a walk to town, but not too bad.

As previously mentioned, Seymours has moorings and a lunch service.

Good luck,

Northport docks

Evening RetCO
Northport Docks are great, free during the day $45 when we stayed overnight about 2yrs ago.

They have power and water, depth not a problem ~8’ in channel right up to the docks( as other folks said somewhere around 4-5 at the dock, but soft bottom) so obviously, don’t go in at low tide;-) Back then we were sailing a Catalina 30 with a 6.5' draft.

Pump out and fuel at Britannia Yacht club (here you definitely, need to wait for tide to make it through some "shallow" areas)

Great anchorage with great holding and reasonably good protection just on the other side of Centerport (great little beach) anchor NE of G1 in about 25’ - about a 10 minute sail to the town docks... we've spent a week at anchor there, shooting over to the town docks every couple of days for water and to recharge and then a quick trip to Britannia to pump out... they also have a pump-out boat for the town docks, but it's iffy at times.

Great town, great bus service if you need it, great restaurants, walk to laundry facilities, etc., etc., etc.

Oh and as BarryL said, it's a long climb up to the docks(6-7' tide) and nasty pilings, so make sure you have lots of fenders and a fender board!
