THE TOWN OF ESSEX, Connecticut
The Town of Essex consists of three villages: Essex, Centerbrook, and Ivoryton, each a part of the whole, yet uniquely different. Essex Village is just a short walk from the dock area and offers many unique shops and wonderful restaurants. Visiting Essex Village does not require transportation arrangements, however Ivoryton and Centerbrook will.
For information on availability, arriving yachts should hail Safe Harbor Dauntless Marina on VHF Channel 68 when approaching our facility, or phone 860-767-3239. Launch service is available by calling on Channel 68 or by sounding three blasts. Dinghies may land on the inland end of the southern floating docks, or at the dinghy dock behind the main fuel dock. Ice is available at the Safe Harbor Office.
