West Harbor is the only harbor at Fishers with easy access to public facilities, but there are other smaller harbors and anchorages. East Harbor, on the islands north side, is a gunkhole thats accessible with a shallow-draft boat, although theres a lot of foul ground here. Chocomount Cove, between Clay Point and Brooks Point, is another anchorage. You can use 136-foot high Chocomount Hill, located southeast of the cove, as a landmark. Both East Harbor and Chocomount Cove are exposed in a northerly.
Fishers Island is beautiful and its anchorages are peaceful, but amenities are few, so cruisers should arrive well provisioned.
Youll find some beautiful beaches on the south shore of Fishers, with views of the North Shore of Long Island and Block Island. Isabella Beach is secluded and open to all, and its a great place for fishing or spearfishing. The parking area is small and unmarked. To the east, Chocomount Beach and South Beach are also lovely, but youll need to befriend a resident to gain access. These are all ocean beaches on Block Island Sound, and the waves can be big. There are also no lifeguards, so families with small kids should head for Dock Beach, just north of the Mobil station on West Harbor. A lifeguard is usually on duty at this soft white sand beach during the summer, theres a roped-off swimming area and the water is clear enough for snorkeling.
Docks, ledges, submerged riprap, shoreline rocks and boulders.
