Payne's Dock &

Mahogany Shoals

Welcome to Block Island.


Block Island's Most Original Marina

We Always have room for one more!

Payne's Dock has been a Block Island landmark for decades. Family run and owned for generations.  Located at the south end of the Great Salt Pond in New Harbor, we are easy to get to and accessible for vessels up to 300’.

Block Island is located in the Block Island Sound very close to Newport, Long Island, Connecticut and is very easy to get in and out of. There are many fun things to do on Block Island: great beaches, bike riding, hiking and walks, boating and kayaking, or just enjoy a cocktail and a gorgeous sunset. 

Call us today with any questions or concerns you may have or feel free to  book a slip with Dockwa.  Either way, we will get you settled in so you can enjoy Payne's Dock. 


Come Visit Us!


Mahogany Shoals Bar

Mahogany Shoals is the bar that you've been practicing for.  We feature live music every night. Come enjoy a cocktail and some great food from Rebecca's Dockside Restaurant. Enjoy the view and casual atmosphere at one of our three bars including the second floor bar which has a view of the harbor that is second to none.  

Shop in the store to get all of your Payne’s Dock and Mahogany Shoals gear as well as  beach supplies and sporting goods.  

Come on over for a drink and a bite to eat at the most relaxed, easy going spot on the island.  Come for the day, come for the night or stay as long as you like but come to  Payne’s Dock and Mahogany Shoals where the beer is cold, the drinks are unique and people are casual. It doesn't get any better than this. 

You might even get to see some show-stopping moves from our dock boys and dock geezers while you're at it :)
