Dering Harbor Cruising Guide:
Anchorages

 

 

Dering Harbor offers a protective harbor right across from Greenport.  The harbor is also located right in the middle of Shelter Island's shopping district.  The harbor has a beautiful anchorage area with access to two marinas, several restaurants and much more.

 

Anchorage Areas...

anchorage area.gif (45301 bytes)The anchorage area is located along the eastern shore line.  Boats are not permitted to anchor inside the mooring area.  The mooring area is clearly marked with white and orange buoys.  

If you will be anchoring inside the harbor you will need to stay 500 feet of the shore.  There is approximately 9-15 feet inside the anchorage area depending on where you anchor.  While the harbor is protected from the summer's prevailing southwesterly breezes, the harbor is very exposed to winds from the north.  Anchoring out side this area is prohibited and discouraged by local law enforcement.  Gaining access to the anchorage area is quite easy and you should not have any problems.
