Essex is probably one of the most popular "excursions" from Andrews Marina. It is only about 20 to 25 minutes south on the Connecticut River and has a anchorage and several marina's where a transient slip can be picked up for the day or overnight.

There is a lot of history in Essex. Check out some of these links:,,_Connecticut,

Here is a list of marinas where you can stay as a transient for the night:

A lot of people like to either anchor across the harbor near Nott Island or just upriver at Hamburg Cove. Andrews Marina has a mooring available for the use of marina guests. Just ask Dave for details.

There are some fantastic places to eat in Essex too. We recommend either The Griswold Inn or The Black Seal. Both are great.
