From the East
As you approach Greenport from Gardiner's Bay past Bug
Light into Shelter Island sound, you will find ample
an amount of water. As you approach Hay Beach
Point on Shelter Island, the water does become shallow
just east of this point.
After you round the point you will experience some
rather strong currents while heading towards the
village. There is plenty of water in this
area. During the summer the wind blows directly
from the direction you will be heading. If you
are a sailor, be prepared for some taking.
Once you past the Greenport Jedi, you can head
straight for the docks without any concerns. You
will find 5 MPH speed limit buoys posted just outside
the docks. Please observe the speed limit and
remember to watch your wake.
From the West
Approaching Greenport from the Peconic Bays is quiet a
beautiful trip. Be aware that the currents that
run past Paradise Point in Southold, Shelter Island's
Jennings Point and North Ferry are quite strong.
After you pass Red 10 Can off Fanning Point
you can head directly towards the Greenport
docks. Make sure to give way to the Shelter
Island Ferry. As you approach the Greenport
Railroad dock you will find 5 MPH speed limit buoys
posted just outside. Please observe the speed
limit and remember to watch your wake.
