We’ve been coming to Cuttyhunk for over 25 years, and it is an idyllic, beautiful island. It has however morphed into a destination for crazy, drunk people, many with big expensive boats, that like to rendezvous with other friends and party uncontrollably till the cows come home. My wife and I recently spent a Saturday night in Cuttyhunk. At 5 o’clock almost every boat was out having cocktails and appetizers and 6 to 7 a lot we’re eating lobsters on their boats. Completely acceptable behavior. At 9 PM the party really started. The boat behind us had music blasting at a volume of 10 and people were going crazy on the dock. People were loud, drunk, and out of control. I would’ve thought I was at spring break in Daytona Beach. The party went on till 12:30 AM. I have since learned this is turned into a real problem for this beautiful island. Buyer beware, if you’re looking for a beautiful quiet spot to go to this will not make you a happy camper. Although there is a 10 PM noise ordinance, obviously this was not followed, and the island has no strategy to enforce out of control parties. Until they can police these crazy people, we will not be going back.
We are from Cape Cod and make a once a year cruise to Boston. We love Waterboat Marina. Very friendly and accommodating staff and the facility is clean and well maintained. Location is fantastic. Nothing but good things to say about this marina and our stay.
