For top-notch service and accommodations, head to the harbor’s largest full-service marina, Kingman Yacht Center. KYC has it all, from deep-water slips and moorings to haul-out, service and fuel. Plus, it’s home to the Chart Room restaurant— a Buzzards Bay institution and a great place to enjoy sunset cocktails.
For a fun side trip, take a dinghy or kayak to Bassetts Island, which offers a long, sandy beach and great swimming (but no public restrooms). If you don’t like crowds, plan your trip here on a weekday, and beware the poison ivy that grows thickly just beyond the dunes.MarinaLife.com
