You can anchor
without harassment in both the Vinoy basin north of the pier, and also on the south side just off the channel into the southernmost slips at the Municipal Marina. For the southern anchorage hug the breakwater as far SE as possible. Downside there is that you are directly beneath the flight path of the general aviation airport
- a busy one at that. Muni marina does not have a dinghy dock
Vinoy basin is not the best holding ground and is open to wind
/ swells from the east. Dinghy
dockage available there at the Electric Boat
tours & rental dock
on the southern shore for $5 per day. Vinoy is usually crowded.
