Combined marina locations on both sides of the bridge offer numerous amenities. These include gas, bait, tackle, supplies, boat rentals, a shoreside pump-out facility, and a restaurant. Enjoy fried clams on the deck while watching the boat traffic! There is a launch ramp suitable for canoes, kayaks, and motor boats.

Tide Math: High tide at Roht Marine is about 25 minutes after the Boston high tide.

Set off from here to go clamming. (See the North River Shellfishing Map for locations.) The clam flats in both the North and South Rivers are open from November 1 to May 31st. If there is a Red Tide, they may close sooner.

Features

On the Marshfield side: the Rogers Family built ships at this location from 1794 to 1809. The 1720 family home, presently a Bed & Breakfast, still stands. Later the property was owned by the Damon family. Mary Damon operated a boat yard here in the early 1900s, known as Mary's Boat Yard. Another Mary -- Mary Duane Williams -- ran Mary's Boat Livery on this site from 1948 to 1986. Then Mary's daughter Jane Duffy and her husband John took over the business. Roht Marine purchased the property in 2012.

NSRWA offers ecological and historic boat tours from this site.

On the Scituate side: this property was formerly known as North River Marine.

Habitats and Wildlife

Watch for the occasional harbor seal in the water. Bald eagles nest nearby, so you may see adult or young eagles. Also watch for the peregrine falcons, which sometimes chase terns.
