    Face dock with no amenities on site, although there are public restrooms across the street (from 8am to 8pm). Say use is free, but overnight is $2/foot, essentially on the honor system. If you are fit and flexible, you can use the wharf as a dinghy dock to visit the shoppes, restaurants, brew houses, bars, and coffee shops. No ladders or floating docks, so you do have to hoist yourself up a bit. Take care to plan for the 1-1/2 to 2' tide and wakes.

    Great location to visit a beautiful, quaint little town. The biggest drawback is the lack of nearby grocery, drug, or convenience stores or gas stations, but 13-Mile Seafood Market is adjacent (north) for fresh seafood. That makes up for it.
