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!
