Setting — About one mile past the New London Ledge Light, tucked into Green's Harbor on the western bank of the very busy, commercial and semi-industrial Thames River, are two marinas catering to sport fishing boats and other seasonal and transient recreational vessels. The first is Thamesport Marina, a relatively new facility that is perched on the steep river bank.

Marina Notes — In 1995, the original docks were removed and replaced, adding finger piers and new pedestals. 160 ft. fuel dock. Volume discount for 500, 1000, 1500 gals. Maintenance has been good and the upgrades have continued with new heads and showers; a laundry is coming soon. Clubhouse deck and picnic area. Onsite is Fred's Shanty, an open air seafood shack (10am-11pm daily in season, 10am-7pm off-season). Fred leased "Fred's" for decades; in the early 90's, he purchased both the marina and property across the road. Atlantic Dive Center is also onsite. Several charter boats make their home here - for local or off-shore fishing adventures. Note: the constant wash from the traffic could make it rolly.

Notable — Just up the street is Monte Cristo Cottage, the restored boyhood home of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning playwright Eugene O'Neill - named for the role his father played for decades (MemDay-LabDay, Tue-Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 1-5pm, call for winter schedule; $5). The New London Historical Shuttle stops here. Up the hill is Michael's Ice Cream and Dairy. A couple of miles south is the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center - home to 5 institutes and 3 theaters. New London's downtown is 2 miles up river with many eateries plus ferry terminals and Union Station; a bus runs along Pequot Ave making it easy to get there.
