The gateway to Connecticut’s waterways and attractions.
The Marina at American Wharf is a freshwater, upriver keystone, conveniently located near many of Connecticut’s most popular tourist destinations and offers gateways to several major northeast waterways.

The marina is located at the head of Thames River, and mouth of the Yantic River and Shetucket River in beautiful southeast CT. Head down the Thames for seamless access to the Atlantic via the Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound. Or head up the Shetucket River for beautiful views and links to the Quinebaug River and Aspinook Pond. Follow the Yantic river through other major Norwich locations.

Pass through New London and cruise by the sub base in Groton to enter the Long Island Sound. The mouth of the Thames puts you 18 miles due north of Montauk and five miles from Fishers Island.From there, the Atlantic is your oyster!
