West Neck Harbor Cruising Guide:
Anchorage Area

 
West Neck Harbor offers a protected harbor with beautiful beaches.  The harbor also offers a great anchorage area with access to a full service marina.

 

Anchorage Areas...

West Neck Harbor Anchorage AreaThe anchorage area in West Neck Harbor is located in the south-west corner.    The anchorage area is very large and clearly marked with white and orange buoys.  There is plenty of depth in the anchorage area (10-15 feet in most areas).  The anchorage has a sandy bottom with a good holding ground.  Boaters can also get fairly close to the beach without going aground.  While the anchorage area offer plenty of water, entering the harbor can be very tricky.  Make sure to see the navigation page for more information.

The anchorage is sheltered by Shell Beach. Shell Beach offers access to both West Neck Harbor and Shelter Island Sound.  The dirt road on the peninsula will bring you to the tip of Shell Beach overlooking some beautiful homes on the other side.  West Neck Harbor also offers a great view the sunset.  

Remember Anchoring in the harbor longer than 48 hours is prohibited.  For more regulations regarding West Neck Harbor CLICK HERE.
