Great Kills Harbor is a deep-water, nearly landlocked basin that's 3.75 square mileswith a mean low water depth of 15 ft.
The daily tidal range is usually about six feet but the marina has all new floating docks which makes the tides a non-issue.
Nearly land-locked, The harbor is generally well protected from the worst storms and Nichols is very easily accessable from the main channel as you approach. The beach is adjacent to the marina with miles of beautiful pristine sand and seagrasses. In the summer season there is a snack bar in the beach pavilion plus additional heads and a nice playground for the children. Gateway National Recreation Area, which covers about two-thirds of the harbor, offers marina patrons fishing, boating, sports, swimming, and ranger-led walks. Nature trails start right near the marina and go through ocean dunes, grasslands, marshes and a swamp oak forest to Crookes Point. In mid September, it's also a stopping place for Monarch butterflies on their way to Mexico. The New York City S78 bus stops nearby; it's a 30 minute ride to the St. George Terminal, home to the Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan. Or take the New York City S79 bus to the 86th Street subway in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
