Welcome to the Indian River Marina in Clinton, Connecticut! The marina is situated about one-quarter mile up the Indian River from the Clinton Harbor where three rivers – the Hammonasset, Indian, and Hammock – converge on their way to Long Island Sound.

The lovely tidal wetland setting is ideal for shallow-draft vessels and allows convenient access for sailing and fishing on Long Island Sound and paddling in the rivers running into Clinton Harbor. Rent a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard and launch directly into the Indian River, or you can arrange a drop-off to other nearby waters. We also offer very reasonable rates on slips and winter storage.

The marina is located within easy walking distance of historic downtown Clinton where antique shops, restaurants, art galleries, and pleasant quiet streets lined with cottages and restored captains’ homes provide a wonderful location for strolls and casual dining.

"Indian River is not only a spectacular location for water sports, but the owners are the most wonderful people. They were so helpful in getting me the best kayak for my budget and skill level, teaching me how to load and strap it to my car, and overall just so friendly and genuine. You feel like a neighbor or friend, not a customer."

"If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would. This is a great small business. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. They helped me with purchasing a kayak I’ve had my heart set on for so long."
