From the Dock to Block: What’s New at Champlin’s Marina and Resort

From the Dock to Block: What’s New at Champlin’s Marina and Resort

Author: Champlin's Team

A trip to New England’s famous Block Island should be on everyone’s itinerary this summer, and Champlin’s Marina and Resort is excited to welcome you and your crew to this slice of paradise we call home. From our newest addition of Champlin’s Choice, to a wide array of activities on site, and just a short distance by bike or on foot to all of Block’s best attractions, a visit to Champlin’s will stand out.

For The Ship, Captain, and Crew

Book your reservation with ease and know that upon arrival, you will find a well marked approach for navigation, and a crew to assist with a smooth landing. Champlin’s full-service fuel dock offers the most competitive fuel prices in the area, not to mention that our overnight marina guests can enjoy 10 cents off per gallon! Seek safety from the elements protected within Block Island’s famous Great Salt Pond. We offer fantastic shelter from foul weather, along with full access to the comfort of our recently renovated facilities. Relax and recharge, knowing your vessel is safe and sound on our dock. All overnight marina guests get full access to what our property has to offer.


For The Spontaneous Adventurers

We’re thrilled to extend an open invitation to Block Island day-trippers! Book a slip for just half the nightly rate, and gain access to our many resort amenities, including our Champlin’s Choice package (see below for details). Participate in lawn game tournaments, or spend your day sipping on signature cocktails and relaxing oceanside at one of Champlin’s popular on site restaurants. Make sure you grab an ice cream cone at the Sugar Shack and check out our outdoor fire pits before returning back to reality at the end of your day.

For the Foodie

We are home to four unique eateries, all of which are open to our guests and Block Island visitors! Looking for a quick cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast to get your day started? Café Boutique has got you covered! Continue on your day with a world famous mudslide from Pier 76, our dockside double-decker bar, and an ice cream cone from our Sugar Shack. Searching for that classic New England fare to celebrate a day well spent? Look no further, and join us at The Galley House for dinner and drinks, as the sun sets over Great Salt Pond.


For the Island Explorers

This season, we’re introducing Champlin’s Choice – a guest pass that extends access to our fleet of kayaks, paddle boards, and peddle boats to explore by sea. No cars needed for land exploration. You and your crew can explore the island via bikes, single and tandem, so you can make the most of your Block Island experience. For just $25.00/day as a resort guest, or $75.00/day as a non-resort visitor, the opportunities are endless with Champlin’s Choice.

Our boutique hotel offers you and your crew the ultimate comforting vacation with updated decor that nods to traditional New England charm.  Each room is equipped with a walk-in shower, flat screen TV, USB port outlets, mini-fridge, and bureau for the ultimate rest and relaxation. Champlin’s is riddled with maritime history and enchanting allure, making your summer stay a truly  one-of-the-kind experience.
