Great stay during some snotty weather. Moorings were taken so we had to tie up at a dock. It’s all stern in and a right squeeze, which is not much fun, for a 45’ full keel bot with a non functioning bow thruster. But the harbor master and his assts were a big help and all was well
Stayed over for a cpl of nights bookending TS Isais. Marina gave everyone there double wide slips so we would have placenta of room. The wave arrester wall served very well, and it remained quite comfortable in all but the peak of the winds
We had a very nice stay. The place is up river a ways, but there was never less than 7’ of water with the tide 1’ above low. In fact, the shallowest spot is the before the turn by Bruce and Johnson. I guess they dont want you going past! Helpful staff so long as you dont get in after around 4:30. Easy walking distance to Stony Creek Brewery and Nellies Seafood, too. They place ain’t fancy, but 2 bucks per foot and free electricity its definitely a find!

They are small Narrow floating docks secured to the bottom by moorings fore and aft. similar to what I’ve seen in rivers. As such you need to be ready with fenders and lines. Definitely more of a number than grabbing a mooring. We shared #1 with a charter cat which gave us much less privacy than a mooring would have. Finally, they were an extremely shallow spot-shallow like awash at low tide-RIGHT-in front of the the little dock making arrival and departure both a little tense.
Very nice helpful staff. Pricey but it’s Nantucket. Mooring lines very new Great 3 night stay
Love it here. Easy to find mooring
always been beautifully maintained in a pretty spot. I needed to go to a marine supplier a 1/2 hour away, and they drove, waited, and drove me back at no charge. Was also able to refill an empty propane tank Great stay. Thanks!
