There are many marinas located in Warwick Cove in Warwick Rhode Island, but Harbor Lights Marina, in my opinion is one of the best.
Besides being located on a back street off Warwick Neck Avenue, Harbor Lights Marina has a clear view down Narragansett Bay. Sitting on the dock and watching the boats brings just as much enjoyment as having a boat in a slip.
Harbor Lights Marina, boasts double fingers. (for those who do not know what double fingers are, its a dock on both sides of your boat) Most of the marinas in Warwick do not have double fingers. Having a dock on either side makes it so much easier for the Captain to get the boat in the dock with a minimum of fuss. It also lets the First Mate take their time jumping off the boat to tie up the lines.
A Dock has a perfect view of not only the Oakland Beach fireworks, but a general parade of boats coming up the cove and then returning at the end of the day.
All the docks are clean, well lit and just a nice place to be. Tim and Leo are always around, either on the gas dock, or in the office, or out in the yard and both are very accessible for questions and help.
Hap, the mechanic and John, the Yard manager are also always accessible and always willing to help.
Below are a few photos of Harbor Light Marina, mostly taken from the water.
