Sakonnet Harbor N 41 27.996' W 071 11.730'
Sakonnet Harbor is located on the Southeastern most tip of Rhode Island bordered by the Sakonnet River to the west, Rhode Island sound to the south and has remained virtually unchanged for many years. With a relatively small but thriving commercial fishing fleet comprised of lobster boats, gillnetters, and trap fisherman, Sakonnet Point looks and feels like the quintessential New England harbor.
Also, Sakonnet Harbor is home to the Sakonnet Yacht Club (SYC) with its very busy sailing school as well as the Sakonnet Point Club (SPC) with its marina and dry boat storage. There is well over one hundred private moorings along with two transient moorings that can accommodate vessels up to forty feet. Visiting mariners should be aware of local fish traps extending outward from shore many hundred feet and may pose to be a hazard at night or in foggy conditions.
Sakonnet Harbor has a breakwater to the west that supplies adequate protection throughout much of the year, but can fall short in the winter months when northwest winds prevail.
The Harbor Master may be contacted during the spring to fall season on channel 6 VHF or by phone during business hours.
