I was two days early! But with a slipping keyway in my prop shaft, our plans changed. The Harbormaster got us right in. Love the ease of trash drop off, fuel is running again, ice is available, and a great selection of restaurants. Free pump out boat that will swing by whether you are onboard or not. The only downside is that they REALLY need to police the dinghy dock. The flooded dinghy with a run down Nissan engine tied lengthwise to the dock needs to go. And it seems a lot of people forget their long painter and only have their 6’ version. It’s the most painful part of coming to edgartown. Otherwise a wonderful time!!
I have been a year-round user of Marina Bay since 2015 across three different boats thus far. Tyler, Norman, Maureen and many many others take great care of us and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in the Boston area! Very good facilities, great staff, great access to the harbor with only a neglible "no wake" zone to worry about. Great restaurants only a short walk away from the boat and now 3 stores to provision at before you cast off for the day.
Helpful attendant, easy trip to the slip, and super easy to talk off the boat and head just about anywhere. We were lucky and had great slipmates; i could see though that we could have easily ended up with partiers next to us and our small kids would have been impacted. Not an issue with the slips per se, but rather Oak Bluffs seems to attract a more boisterous crowd. We will still go back!
Very helpful service - they knew who i was and where my reservation was and gave great directions to get there. Had I wanted it, they were willing to escort me. We had a minor issue - the prior renter hadn't vacated yet and we had to circle while waiting; a little challenging in a 46' boat with a lot of traffic. We weren't too from the fuel or dinghy dock, nor from the beaches. Now for the locale: in one week we went to Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, and Nantucket. ACK was the best! Easy, clean beaches to go to in the harbor or right outside, great shopping, yet not too pretentious. Great restaurants.
Excellent stay! The team at TWC are A++. They met us at the dock, helped us tie up, and were friendly and supportive whenever we had a question or needed ice. The facilities are clean and neat, but basic. We were on West Dock. It's a pier with great power and water, but that's it. It's close to town, good restaurants within easy walking distance, and relatively quiet. We would definitely stay again.
Mick, Sam, Rick, and all of the marina crew are A+++! With our boat only two weeks in our possession, we expected a trouble free vacation. Our diesel fuel line thought otherwise. Mick helped us out, called his own mechanic, and we were ready to go the next day... but the weather was not. They found room for us to stay 2 more days and were incredibly accommodating. We’ll see them many times over the coming years and are grateful for their hospitality! Plus the fuel is incredibly well priced and the water pressure is the best of any marina I’ve ever experienced!
