Dutch Island is a small state island located in the West Passage just to the west of Conanicut Island and Jamestown. It is located at the bay’s south end, where Rhode Island Sound meets the headlands in a powerful encounter. Beavertail Point, about 3.5 miles south of Dutch, is where the West Passage to Narragansett Bay starts and large waves build. With any seas coming out of the south or southeast, conditions can get exciting. This is not a place for the novice. The trip is around the south edge of Conanicut Island and requires spotting a car at Fort Wetherill.
