A great harbor to visit for a few days. Convenient dinghy dock and dumpsters near the yacht club, free pump outs on the mooring and a free “ water barge” near green #9 can. Lots of small sailboats tacking around, several beaches & lots of shopping and dining options. Car rental a mile from dock for exploring the island. Walk your dog at nearby Chappy ferry dock or around town.
Cuttyhunk is a quiet gem. We got a side tie up on the end of the “seafood” dock which was convenient for our pup. Lovely, peaceful island to stroll. Dock hands asked for a spring line as we were coming in and I knew we were in the hands of pros! We bought a couple lobsters right nearby and had a dinner feast. The harbor was busy on a Sunday afternoon but if you take it easy things work out. First you pass the town moorings and you can take your pick . Further into the basin ( somewhat shallower) you’ll find a number of pilings you can use as a mooring (skip any marked private or reserved; look for “Rental”). Still $45. Someone will come for the fee. A friendly, low key island with beautiful views, not to be missed.
We had a good experience at Danfords. Solid floating docks which kept us secure during Tropical storm Isaias. Located right in town with all kinds of restaurants and shops. Dock staff was very competent and professional. Good nearby parks for dog happiness.
Very nice modern floating docks, good help from dock master , roomy slips with full length finger piers, etc. easy 20 minutes walk to Target, West, Ace, and food places. Very nice stay.
We had a pleasant overnight stay on a hot day in July. We needed to plug in and run the air conditioning rather than anchor out. Enjoyed the pool. Pet friendly. We were disappointed that the restaurant was not open ( it was a Tuesday).
We took a mooring for an overnight stay in July. Manager/Owner Lee was a friendly, gracious host and put us on their beach cruiser bikes for a short ride to a suggested eatery. The grounds are pleasant and shaded even on a hot July day. Our pup was welcomed and our whole stay was relaxed and pleasant.
