Better to Dink over.

Re: Norwalk CT

Norwalk Cove Marina is a well-equipped facility, but a long way (well more than a mile and on the opposite -east- bank of the river) from the restaurants & attractions in South Norwalk that you say you want to visit. Rex is at least on the west side of the river, perhaps a half mile from the them, but is mostly powerboats (draft issues???) It seems to get shallow as you go upriver, so be forewarned. We stayed overnight once at the Norwalk Shore & Country Club, on the east bank. They were quite accommodating, but they don't get many visitors. (We had friends who were members.) While you are in town, you should also check out Select Plastics, (just over the bridge on the east side) which performs factory certified hatch and port repairs for a variety of brands.

Re: Norwalk CT

norwalk harbor is pretty shallow , Stay in the channel .
you have to study the charts if you want to anchor out and it would be a bit of a dingy ride to the town dock ..
but if you dont mind the town dock , its a great place for a visit !
west marine is close by , movies The aquarium all a short walk ..

lots of resturants , Sono Seafood across the river has a great outside deck with a veiw of your boat at the dock across the way

Norwalk Islands are great too ..

I drive by everyday ..this is up todate info .

Cove Marina is nice ..pool plus close to the beach ...but a couple miles from town

Trekka Any possibilities for anchoring out and dinghy in? Places to land and tie up? Maybe marina w/dinghy privileges?

Minnewaska It has literally been 30 years since I docked in Norwalk. My Father kept a boat there for several years back then. I have been back to the city (SoNo), which is a whole lot nicer these days then it was back then. Lots of great bars and restaurants and I've been to the IMAX as well.

Rex Marine was a staple back then and I understand it still is. It is also on the same side of the river as where you will want to go. The town docks were over the bridge, which isn't that big of a deal. It's walkable. I would question how quiet the town docks are at night, but my recollection is quite dated.

I wonder if they still have the Oyster Festival each year at the town park. A classic summer memory of boating with my family.

WanderingStar I stayed at the town dock last year, similar experience to Mazzy's. The only problem was that there was a party boat stern wheel looking thing taking city folk out for parties. Started late and went til dawn. It was only a problem at the dock when someone opened a door and let out amplified boomp boomp boomp! But that did keep me from getting a good night's sleep.

mazzy Barry,
I stayed at the town dock a couple of Octobers ago. Easy walk to SoNo nightlife (and an easy stumble back to my berth after beers at The Ginger Man). Went to the aquarium, and, because of a noreaster, took the railroad home, leaving the boat for a couple of days on the dock. No pool, but clean showers/restrooms. Really convenient and easy.

Mike
