The marina at Langley is jolly and charming. It is a small, community marina with a lot of character. The marina curves in toward land with a wall protecting the dock from disturbances from the sound. The entirety of the dock is publicly accessible, save for a small strip outside the protective wall.

On the one trip I made to this marina there was an abundance of ochre stars- far more than I have seen under any other dock. They were also much larger individually that other stars I have seen in the area. Due to its protected nature, it makes sense that there would be an abundance of wildlife that could take advantage of the peaceful setting.

LOCATION

There's a few parking spots down by the marina which shares the space with a park. Head down the dock to get the main part of the marina where you can look underneath at all the creatures. Not much instruction is needed here- everything will be fairly obvious. There is a small boat ramp just south of the marina that may or may not also be worth checking out.
