Cuttyhunk Marina is in a very well protected harbor that has great appeal to sailors as well as power boaters. No matter which way the wind blows you will be safe and comfortable in this sheltered harbor. Cuttyhunk Marina offers approximately fifty transient boat slips some of which will accommodate vessels up to 100 feet. All slips have fresh water and electricity available. Our power supply accommodates 30 amp and 50 amp service.
Once again Cuttyhunk outdid itself. Fall is the best boating in the northeast and Cuttyhunk remains the gem. We arrived from Westport MA on Friday night. George assigned us an end slip so after a quick run over we tied alongside and had dinner on board. Enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a great nights sleep. On Saturday morning we had the island to ourselves. Enjoyed a great chat with George, coffee, breakfast and headed back over calm seas to Westport. I had chatted with Dockwa staff at the Newport Boat Show earlier in the day. I told them how happy we are to have Dockwa available and how easy they make booking slips. Once again Cuttyhunk and Dockwa outdid itself.
Peggy & George were super helpful and accommodating as we planned our nautical wedding. Thank you for helping make the weekend low stress and extra special.
Always exceptional. Thank you.
Another excellent visit!
The marina is great! The Harbormaster and staff are awesome!!! Will be back again!! Wonderful weekend!
Most relaxing place on earth. Harbormaster and dock hands where extremely helpful. Other boaters friendly and helpful. Always a good morning, or a wave as they passed by us. We will definitely be back!
One of our most favorite places. No FOMO here because there is nothing to do...peaceful.
How can you not like Cuttyhunk?! Love George, the Dockmaster, Police Chief and jack of all trades! We even got to see countless stars in the incredible, clear Cuttyhunk sky both nights. !It truly is a magical place. - Howlin’ Wolf
Our first visit to Cuttyhunk, it exceeded our expectations of an unspoiled gem. The dock was convenient, calm, good neighbors. George was super helpful with tie-up. We’ll be back.
Beautiful location. Marina has fixed docks but manageable. Was assigned a slip upon arrival, but no assistance with tie-up.
Docks in great shape and harbor is awesome.
Absolutely amazing stay. Harbormaster and the staff are all over everything. It can be a bit of a tough dock sometimes but they make it easy and are incredibly helpful and responsive.
OMG. Best place ever !!!! Would stay there forever if we could. Every trip the same wonderful!
Quiet spot to relax with gorgeous sunsets.
Great stay for one night - loved the slip we had!
So relaxing!!! Can’t wait to come back and stay longer!! Very interesting history on the island :) felt safe and secure, others on the dock were helpful and friendly. Clean bathrooms, good food. Such a great place for a family trip.
great place, even better staff,
Harbor master was very friendly and helpful. Dockage is between pilings, which we weren’t ready for but it all worked out.
Fabulous Asst Harbor Master! Friendly people everywhere! Loved all the shacks and their food/drink offerings. Quaint. We will be back!!!
The stay at Cuttyhunk was great.
Great visit as always. Best oysters in the world!
Love it! Fantasy Island. FYI for sailboats there are extremely limited options for tying up on a slip. There are one or two slots by the main wharf. The other option is 1-2 slots on the old fuel dock. However, it is a 6’ climb from your boat to the dock, no ladders. Best plan is to hook up on a town mooring or prepare to anchor just outside the harbor channel.
Harbor Master (Peggy) was great. Responsive and helpful. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. informal (Takeaway) dinner options but great food.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Peaceful and great staff!!
Great staff. The harbor Master team made it very easy to pull in and off the dock with clear directions, keeping up with all incoming traffic. Will definitely be back
The Cuttyhunk Marina was great and the harbormaster's crew were very helpful.
One of the best locations in the northeast!
There was a miss communication about us being a sailboat but the marina found a workable solution. We had a good stay
We stayed one night on July 3rd in a slip and the Staff were extremely helpful with docking. We love Cuttyhunk and hope to be back at the marina later this summer.
Great communication from the harbor master. Do believe the power posts are new. We try to make Cuttyhunk an annual stop. Always enjoy the casual, relaxed serenity of the island.
Always a pleasure. George is a great guy.
Very quiet and beautiful scenery
The marina, and Island overall, are great. It is as advertised a beautiful, peaceful setting. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. The only negative was the restroom facilities could use an update, and more regular cleaning/ resupply. And a couple showers, even if outdoor, would be nice. But we'll definitely visit again.
The approach from Vineyard Sound, through Canapisit channel, is rather tricky and requires close attention. The channel into the pond on which the marina is located is not as challenging as the guide books say, but still requires care. The dockmaster and others around the dock are attentive and helpful. There is a guy there selling lobsters and a small cafe on the dock. But aside from these and a very small grocery store up the hill a ways, there ain't much to Cuttyhunk or Gosnold, the town. It is a good place to be restful while on the way from somewhere east or west to someplace else west or east (or north)
Great marina! Thank you George
Cuttyhunk was its regular terrific self: low-key and friendly. It was quiet, which was a huge blessing after Champlin’s on Block Island. This is where you go if you like looking at the stars.
John was very helpful getting our boat secured
George and crew always do a great job. Our go to place
George was fantastic. Great help with docking! A beautiful place to visit. Will return.
Nice and quiet such a special island
Just wonderful!! Excellent marina, and an incredible experience one the island!
Great stay, people were so nice. Just a wonderful place.
Cuttyhunk staff are always very accommodating and the Wi-Fi worked as advertised
Beautiful island and wonderful place to get away from it all.
This marina was amazing! Perfect for our little getaway. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. And Dave and Lisa our dock neighbors were so helpful we thought they worked there. LOL. Love love love everything about this island. Quaint little place with all of the best simple amenities that make a New England experience perfect. I think we are going to make this an annual trip, but not sure I can wait that long. Our only regret is that we didn’t book for a longer stay. Miss it already!
Nice setting. Good staff. Local seafood available for take-out at the docks. Quiet village but nothing to do except walk around the small island. The marina WiFi is poor. Cell service for Verizon is not available most of the time.
Greatly eat visit. Dockmaster quite helpful. Not a lot open on island due to Covid. The Docking in the 6 post slip can be a bit if a challenge. I have a 30 ft. Grady White and really only needed the dock posts and the one 20 feet forward. Using all 6 created a bit of a challenge retrieving lines in a 20 know wind. All good.
Awesome stay as always!
Quaint island. Enjoyed our stay. The only thing is the WiFi is horrible. Never once we’re we able to connect.
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.
Have been going to Cuttyhunk for years. Quiet peaceful place to be. Beautiful sunsets from atop the hill.
excellent as always. marina is up to date. harbormaster friendly and helpful.
Very clean, safe, and protected harbor ... a great place for a very relaxed stay. Harbormaster is very efficient and friendly. Wonderful venue for a family stay with younger children!
Great Harbor, Great Dock Accomadations and the Best Harbor Master (and team) in The North East !
Always a place we stay when traveling in the Cape Cod area. A perfect place to lay back and take in what we feel traveling by boat is all about.
The marina was very helpful
Pleasant and relaxing as always. I love it here.
The Harbormaster and Assistant Harbormaster were great!! Can’t wait to go back next year.
Cuttyhunk is a beautiful place to chill. Not much to do, boat slips are not user friendly, piers where you have to back in and lasso piers, ladders are very slippery. No showers.
We enjoyed another great stay at Cuttyhunk Marina. News flash: they have internet now, just ask for the password. Cell service is still a bit sketchy. But at least you can get online. Enjoyed the usual friendly and helpful service from dock master George, Peggy and Angus. Fishing club open (2021)! Soprano's closed mid-August again but we had raw bar, steamers and lobster. The island is serene and beautiful. Best fun is sitting on the beach at the harbor entrance and watching the 'boat parade' and swimming. We look forward to it every year.
Great help from Angus getting on the piling dock. Alert: you really need 6 long lines. GreAt stay. Shack had a nice lobster bake to bring to our boat.
Nice stay xxxxxxxxxmmxmxmxmxmxmxmxmxmxmxmxmx
Cuttyhunk was amazing! One of our favorite people places to visit!
Wonderful little island. Everybody was so friendly and helpful getting in and out. Great lobstahs too!
We really enjoyed our stay in Cuttyhunk and Peggy and the folks who manage the dock were terrific to work with. Given some impending weather, we asked if we could add an extra night and the team was very accommodating. We will gladly visit again!
Not much can beat being in the Mishkan on Cuttyhunk
Great spot. Great service. Everyone was nice .
Voltage is low - down to 104 volts when the AC was running on the boat and marina use was also likely high - as low as 103 volts at one point. Very sensitive to boat load. Now at Block Island (Champlain) and under same circumstances voltage is 125.
So much fun!! Fireworks were FANTASTIC!!!
fantastic staff, beautiful and tranquil harbor
George is the best! This is a unique location that everyone should visit at least once.
Pretty great but no showers? Really?
As always, great staff, great stop!
amazing. George and crew are awesome. Made a special slip for me as they were full heaven on earth.
Excellent and enjoyable… very relaxing
Great staff, very responsive! Services all great, WiFi could be stronger!
Very accomodating - nice folks - clean showers and rest rooms. Only problem is that WiFi is VERY weak and one has to sit in their office for reliable communications.
Very nice marina. Would be nice if showers available but we enjoyed beautiful sunsets and tranquil surroundings.
Fantastic they could not have been nicer!
Had been to Cuttyhunk in 25 years. It was a great spot back then and has only improved like a rare wine, our visit and stay was wonerful
This place was an unexpected gem. We loved the island. People are super friendly and we had the pleasure of being there for Lobsters on the Lawn. Docking was a bit of a challenge and I. Retrospective on dock 32 we should have docked bow first but the staff was very helpful and professional. We will return!
Beautiful stay at Cuttyhunk the slips are perfect for a weekend getaway!
A great marina on a gem of an island. Marina staff was Incredibly helpful, organized and professional. A must visit for any captain.
Great for a low key adventure. Don't expect reliable wifi, but overall a great marina experience. George was very helpful loaning us a fifth line to use as a spring line. Raw bar and seafood delivered right to our boat was delicious.
Everyone is so friendly food is delicious. Views beautiful
This is one of the best places to visit on Buzzards bay. The dock staff are friendly and helpful, the docks are in good shape. they are not floating and you need to be able to tie stern to.
Harbormaster George and assistant Angus run a beautiful and efficient operation, even in the fog. We’ll return for sure!
Love Cuttyhunk! We had a small problem with our boat and found a very nice gentleman from the island and he fixed it for us. Overall awesome stay
Great night. Lots of good help getting into the slip. H
Scenic island with plenty of dock space. If you have a smaller boat (<34 ft.), bring longer lines as there is significant distance between the pilings. Harbormaster and staff are very helpful. There's not much available for sale on the island, so stock up on beverages and supplies. There are a couple of fish markets, raw bar, lobster hut, ice cream stand, gift shop, and small market for sundries. No liquor. One of the B&B's does breakfast and there's a pizza place that's only open in the evenings. Good place to unplug.
Great time, friendly knowledgable staff. WiFi still a little weak but a fun time as always.
Great people and service
Usually grab a mooring but family wanted a slip on short notice. Very helpful and accommodating. George and his team are great!
Our reservation on Dockwa was not apparent to Captain Isabel, who kept us in a holding pattern for about 45 minutes. By the time we made fast, I was fairly frazzled. We truncated our stay due to TS Elsa and retreated to Menemsha harbor on Marthas Vineyard.
Amazing. Harbor Master(s) were beyond helpful. Quiet, scenic and one of our new favorite places.
The staff and amenities were great. We’ll come back every year!
Awesome. Love it here and Angus was a wonderful help docking. Great island with very friendly people.
They were great and very helpful with meeting out needs.
Cuttyhunk is the highlight for me before the crazy summer begins. The Dock master, George, is wonderful, could not have had a better experience.
This place is a gem. Not too crowded, lots of families. Super friendly vibe from harbor master and his brother (EMT). Don’t miss a couple days here. The raw bar boat will come to you, even on moorings.
The start of our New England boating season. Cuttyhunk Marina is the heartbeat of Cuttyhunk Island. The place to eat, the place to meet and unwind.
dock master was very good to us. great visit to a special place in new england.
Great place, even greater people! Don't forget to order your shrimp and locally sourced oysters (from the island) on Channel 72.
Dave and Lisa were super helpful. We are rookies docking outside our home port, so they were awesome! Whole experience was great!! Thanks!
Gorgeous setting. Was not prepared for the stern in fixed piling tie-up but George the Harbormaster was extremely patient and good at directing my wife what to do, and she stepped up. Wish I could give direction that well! Hope to be back sometime soon.
Best time to go after Labor Day. Felt like the place was ours alone. Quiet, perfect temperature, clean, dogs loved it too. Raw bar service to our boat in evening!!! Better than Block
We had such an amazing time in cuttyhunk! Everyone was extremely friendly. The trails and beaches were absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to come back.
Such a quaint beautiful island! Love the Labor Day weekend Fireworks
Cuttyhunk is great! Always a pleasure staying at the marina for a day or two. Slip was ready and marina personnel answered my radio hail promptly despite a lot of radio traffic at the time. Will definitely return next season.
T head dock tie up was terrible and getting off the T head was my worst un-docking experience ever, and when I tried to dispose of trash they wanted an additional $5.00????? Moorings from now on!!!! Paul Morency on Marsh Hawk
Nice accommodations, with easy access to water and electricity, friendly staff. Would be 5-star if there were showers.
Great to return, a year can't go by without stopping in Cuttyhunk. Relax and enjoyed the oysters.
Beautiful views, beaches, sunsets, and serenity. Enjoy the local flavor and uncrowded island.
Great people, great place... suggest building 3-4 outdoor shower stalls next to the public bathroom for the boaters. You could have a bench in them to change after the shower. I also think you could charge for each use.. Look forward to returning!!
Want a great place to chill? Cuttyhunk is it. Low key but full of friendly sailors during the summer. Captain Isabel, the Dockmaster, and his crew could not be more helpful and accommodating. Whether docking or shoving off they are always around to lend a hand.Decidedly not a party town, it feels mostly like a very exclusive private yacht club.
Love Cuttyhunk and all its beauty!
Great place. Off the beaten path. Locals very friendly. Great accommodating staff.
Didn't get to stay and no answer from the dock master
Excellent. Such a great place! People are fantastic! Great lobster!
Amazing Island. Pizza place is closed temporarily. Kids loved the chowder.
Awesome stay as always. Easy in and out, everyone is very friendly, and everything works as expected.
Second time this season here at the Cuttyhunk Marina. Awesome stay, many thanks to Captain Isabel and his team for the great hospitality
There is almost nothing to do on Cuttyhunk and that is exactly why we like it. People you meet while walking are not on their cell phones and actually return your greetings. Marina is clean, reasonably priced, and well organized. Great place to relax, have a few beers (if you brought them), and read a good book.
This island is magical. A great quiet getaway spot. Beautiful beaches and quaint fishing village vibe. The marina is great and located near everything you need. The marina staff are great and always friendly.
Weather was bad but the people were great
Angus was a great help on the dock, really enjoyed our stay!
Best Harbor master and team friendly and helpful Clean and well kept Can use showers and larger bathroom Luv Cutty
Pleasant and relaxing stay at Cuttyhunk midweek. Dock Master v helpful and island is serious about social distancing, which good.
The Marina is tucked well into Cuttyhunk Harbor, making it a very quiet location. The pier we were assigned was also where one could get food from several vendors. We had a lobster roll because we weren't very hungry but the full lobster dinner tempted us. There are also stalls where one can book fishing and other excursions. The harbormaster saw us approaching and had someone to help with the lines as we arrived. All in all a wonderful experience.l
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.
HarborMaster George very helpful. Thank you
What a hidden gem! Loved every second of this place. Coming back very soon.
As always, the perfect place to get away and unplug. Marina is clean, lots of amenities, and the emphasis on social distancing was welcomed. Perfect weekend yet again!
Your Assistant dock master was excellent in directing us in, assisting with lines and communicating effectively as it was windy on approach! Overall, beautiful Island!
One of my favorite spots. Always Awesome!
Peggy is fantastic to work with, as is the rest of the Staff. The marina is clean and welcoming. There is so much to see, easily accessible by foot. Cuttyhunk is as original of an Island as you will ever see.
Thank you, great fun weekend 👍🇺🇸
Great location even with Covid 19 restrictions! Face Masks are no big deal on the docks or around the island - Raw Bar, Ice Cream and a lobster dinner all awesome!
Cuttyhunk is a magical place. Go. Now. As for the Pier, it was terrific. The dockhand was skilled, helpful and welcoming. I would stay there again, but would also simply pick up a mooring ball. If you stay on the pier, bring boards to help make the most of your fenders. We had our genders rigged horizontally, which worked fine. Boards would have been better. Our night at Cuttyhunk was amazing. I cannot wait to go back. Note: we ended up picking up a mooring on the way back. That was great too.
Nostalgic island. Marina was bare bones though quite pleasant.
We had a wonderful couple of nights at this special little place on a small Island! Told my wife it was real boating! Plotted the course, set the lines for the tides,...different from most other places (that we've been to)...It was a little like stepping back in time. just wish it wasn't 50miles each way, we'd go back sooner....
Harbormaster was very helpful with lines on fixed dock and Pilling’s.
Best place off the beaten path. Only thing to do is relax and have some fresh seafood
Third year going there!!!! Want to get away from it all this is the place. Hope it stays that way
Greatest place on earth.
Our stay was peaceful and quiet. Everyone at the dock was friendly and considerate. Restrooms were kept open and clean. Harbor Master was always checking boats to make sure they were secure and safe with the extraordinary tides.
We had a last minute change of plans and were lucky enough to get a next day slip reservation. This was our first trip to Cuddyhunk and we were greated by the Harbormaster, George, very helpful with docking. He also was nice enough to chat with us for a few minutes and answer our questions about the area. One of the things we learned was that the moorings are first come first served, and they come around to take payment. All of the other boaters were very nice and it was rather quiet and laid back. The weather wasn’t great while we were there so I can’t say much about the beaches but we liked it very much there, we will def be planning another trip back.
It is busy this year in Cuttyhunk. We only managed to get a slip thanks to a cancelation. Despite the full marina, our stay was quiet and peaceful. The Fishing Club is not open for breakfast, but there is plenty available at the dock -- raw bar, tacos, ice cream and more.
Our stay was great. First time at the dock there; we've visited Cuttyhunk many times over many years of sailing and now power boating, but have always stayed on a mooring. One of the assistant harbor-masters was very helpful getting us into the slip. Most of the other boaters at the dock were friendly and sociable, adding to the enjoyment. We appreciated the ease of being tethered to the shoreline in order to walk about at will, get lunch at the Café (great clam chowder) and some terrific stuffed quahogs from the Raw Bar delivered to the boat. One of our passengers is greatly affected by the heat and humidity, so being hooked to shore power to run the A/C was a necessity. First time at the docks, but not the last!
Simply the best spot in the area!!! Period.
Great spot with friendly people. We'll be back!
Great place we love the island and people you go John Adams
I arrived at the Cuttyhunk harbor with a reservation and was told they could not find it. after they continued looking and no reservation was found they offered no resolution. It was at that point it was only after I insisted and I indicated I had a written reservation/confirmation in hand that they allowed me to go to the assigned dock which was not occupied. It was unsettling to arrive with a reservation for accommodations on land to be told that no reservation existed. I would like follow up on this incident.
This marina is breathtaking! The sunset views and the gorgeous soft white sand at the beach is a must see! The dock offers varieties of food... lobster dinner and your own delivery of fresh seafood delivered right to your boat! In the morning you can take a short walk to the most delicious bed and breakfast Inn with breathtaking views!!! We will be back! 😊
This marine offers the best protections and beautiful landscape that pictures does not do any justice. Channel is shallow but stay in the middle. The mooring field is tight so play the winds in your favor.
For heaven's sake stay away! The people here are obnoxiously helpful and friendly, the water is too warm, the sunset is dangerously blinding and you risk being lulled to sleep at mid day by the incessant peace and quiet. You'll wait literally forever for an Uber, can't get a Hulu or Roku signal, Alexa refuses to answer, the public transportation system is terribly undependable and I couldn't find a good fois gras pate anywhere. It's just so... 20th century. Been coming here for 40 years and it's barely changed. You should really go to Newport instead :-)
Stayed on a fixed dock with a significant tide range. The dock master was very helpful with configuring the lines for this. Great island walks & rustic raw bar. No amenities or launch service.
Cuttyhunk is one of our favorite stops- quaint, beautiful. Sunsets and sunrise absolutely stunning!
This place is paradise. George the Harbormaster is helpful and polite. Helps almost every boat dock. People are friendly and island is serene.
Great destination for any boater. Staff was super helpful and appreciated as we were visiting for the first time. Will definitely return.
Friendly and helpful harbormaster and skips with shore power and water made this quiet island stay terrific! With everything you need just a short walk from the marina, Cuttyhunk is a world away!
Paradise, low key, great views, no crowds, my favorite place.
This is an amazing un spoiled jewel I would not change a thing This is our 2nd annual trip and many more to come
The price is good. The amenities and service are also in keeping with the low price, Great sunset. Nice to be able to dinghy to two beaches (at least). Breakfast at Fishing Club is awesome. Folks are friendly.
Love Cuttyhunk...docks can be a little rowdy for our taste on the weekends but the weekdays were quiet, calm and very safe. We will be back!
Good docks. Good people. Loved the atmosphere.
Very relaxing & quiet. Grass was a bit of a problem at the dock - getting drawn up into the strainers. But the island & people were great.
Such a cute town. Amazing fish tacos right in marina.
Very nice stay, beautiful place unlike any other. Would have gotten 5 stars except never saw anyone from marina during our stay, not even with docking.
Harbormaster was friendly & helpful. Visit was great as usual. Check out the new taco stand, the shrimp & fish tacos were outstanding!
The Harbormaster was great helping us back into a slip situation we had never experienced before and with lines on our boat that were not positioned correctly. This is a fixed dock four piling slip with roughly 3 1/2 Ft tides. Restroom are adequate but there are no showers (we knew this ahead of time). The harbor is very well protected and we slept well at night.
Outside moorings a bit rough
Perfect - as always!
What a great place will come back again
High on the plus side for this stop was the extreme helpfulness of the dock master in getting us tied up safely in a strong wind. My boat is a single screw, with a weak bow thrusdter and high windage but the dockmaster’s directions got us tied up quickly. On the minus side I’d have to say that there’s not much in Cuttyhunk. The only “restaurants” (save for breakfast at the Fisherman’s Club) are shacks on the dock - two of which serve lobster dinners and a third serving tacos. The heads are barely adequate and have no showers. There is, however, an ice cream stand in one of the shacks. WiFi was iffy - sometimes barely OK, sometimes nonexistent. The island is fun to walk around on. The high point (literally) is the bunker on the hill. From here you have an unobstructed, 360 degree view of Buzzards Bay and the Vineyard Sound. That’s awesome! There is a market (which I cannot comment on because I didn’t visit it) and one souvenir shop. If you want a place to just relax, be cut off from the world and maybe eat a lobster dinner, this is a good place to visit.
Great overnight stay! Clean friendly Marina. Love the Raw Bar delivery service. Always in time and delicious. Love the new grill stands and the deck area!
We always look forward to staying in Cuttyhunk and having one of the lobster dinners on the dock. I do wish that Cuttyhunk would improve the Wi-Fi signal strength.
If you a are in a slip, practice securing lines to pilings
We spent a wonderful two days at Cuttyhunk marina. Checked out the local stores. Enjoyed a personal tour of the Historical Society followed by cocktails and appetizers. Cruised around the harbor, with a few stops along the way to swim.
We always enjoy our stop in Cuttyhunk. The dock is clean and relatively quiet. The area is picturesque and walking the island is easy and enjoyable. We are never disappointed with our fresh lobster dinner-absolutely delicious!
Friendly staff., very helpful. Great place to visit! No showers though and bathroom is public use so be aware. Otherwise one of our favorite destinations.
Beautiful as always.
Always enjoy Cuttyhunk for its simplicity and great marine facilities. I love that there is nothing to do but enjoy the island and the people there. The dock staff, Dillon in particular, is extremely helpful. He is always there to help. We make sure we visit a couple of times during the summer.
Great place to unplug, eat lobster and relax for a couple days.
Cuttyhunk Marina is top on our list! On Wednesday, July 17 the Harbor Master and crew went above and beyond to help us dock our 40' power boat during a horrific squall and thunder storm. They stayed on the dock in torrential wind and rain to make sure we were safely tied up. We are forever grateful to the Harbor Master and men who aided us! Jack and Harriet Dempsey
We stayed 2 separate stops, each was unique with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The Harbormaster is fantastic and the islanders are very friendly! Love this place!!
This is a MUST MISS! The “dock master” tried to put us on the end of a dock with almost no contact on which to disembark. I asked him about the 50 or so empty slips. He did little to help us get in there. The next morning he directed a 50’ boat to the slip right next to us in spite of the fact that there were many empty slips. The wind was blowing very hard as a storm was coming in. The other boat came within a foot of hitting us. There are a couple of takeout lobster bake huts. There is an outdoor pizza place run out of someone’s home. That’s it. This is the narrowest channel you can find anywhere. But the harbor is extremely well protected with first come first served moorings.
We had a great time. Looking forward to coming back. Total Eclipse
Would help if there was assistance in docking
Never fails to please. An incredible and very special place. New this year... tacos on the dock with Isla Tacos.
Cutty is always a hit, meaning if you crave 1955 this is your place. Took a fabulous water color painting class over three days. Excellent.
We love the island. George and his team do a great job!
Location is great, marina is very nice. decking could use some powerwashing of mildew as it gets slippery when wet.
Early, and late, season visits are our favorite. Great harbor, slips are our preference but moorings are wonderful too. Even in May you can get oysters, clams and lobsters delivered to your boat. Enjoy island walks, scenic views, relaxed, casual lifestyle. The Harbor Master is terrific and offers any and all assistance.
Excellent stay. Nice neighbors; would highly recommend staying there
Our favorite cruising location.
Great staff. Docked next to lobster and seafood raw bar. Great place to relax. Very protected harbour.
dockmaster wonderful and location perfect. enjoyed the boatside food service too.
Great as always. Fresh lobsters and clam chowder can’t be beat. Try to arrive at high tide, slips are very shallow at low tide,
We were on a slip during the week, so relatively quiet. We loved having the "Raw Bar" deliver food to the boat. Also bought swordfish that had been caught that day. Very good experience.
Great stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely head back again in the future.
Beautiful Harbor. Well protected. The Harbormaster met us at the dock and helped set the lines. The docks are fixed and you tie up to the pilings. Chowder, oysters and lobster are all just a few steps away and all were fresh and delicious!! Can’t wait to go back.
We hit the jackpot. Last weekend of summer for Cuttyhunk Marina with beautiful weather, calm seas and the best Harbormaster/Chief of Police...George!
Beautiful weather ....Beautiful island .Dock staff is very helpful😊
Very convenient and comfortable stay.
Off the grid with only a few seasonal small shops and eateries. No wifi. Enjoyed amazing fresh lobster dinner.
Great place. Quiet and relaxed. Great lobster on the dock and friendly people everywhere.
What a great little island. Dockmaster was right there to great us and catch lines. Well marked Easy in and out of harbor. Quiet and quaint. $3.00 ft. Perfect.
Cuttyhunk is always a great time, not much to do but that's what's great about it.
As with the other visit - Great dock hand! Wonderful experience. Will be back again.
It is what you expect boating to be good people with nice facilities and very helpful. Thank you for a great weekend.
Awesome place however if places on accept cash they need an ATM on the island. They would have done a lot more business if my group didn't run out of cash.
Good stay - we extended a few days due to wind and big seas. Very accommodating.
Cuttyhunk is and pretty much always has been both a jewel of a port and a delicate boating ecosystem. It runs like a Swiss watch due to the wisdom and perpetual vigilance of Harbormaster George Isabel. Thanks for all you do, good sir.
Awesome.....Dylan the Harbormaster is a really great guy
Great time will go back
We had a great stay at the marina, will definitely go back
Perfect for 1-2 nights.
Easy slips to pull into, coffee on the dock early in the am, fish cleaning station. Pretty easy harbor to navigate, one narrow bend coming in. Bell buoy marking harbor entrance is not lighted so watch for it at night. Reasonable prices and cancellation policy.
Always a great stop. Friendly Harbormaster's Office takes care of their boaters. Some of the best New England scenery you'll ever see.
Great harbor. Friendly Dock master and staff. Peaceful.
Always love Cuttyhunk. I would strongly encourage the Dockmaster to lower the electric fee for boats staying a few hours to eliminate, or better still not allow the running of generators at the dock.We listened to and smelled exhaust for the better part of the afternoon rendering our cockpit useless while the boat owner and family went to the beach and took dinghy rides. Not cool.
Our second stay at Cutty Hunk through Dockwa on the dock, 6th over all. Dylan and Ms Lynch are great. Very accommodating. Would like to see restrooms updated- showers would be awesome
Better tie up system on pillows everyone has a hard time . Need wood hooks to stop ropes from slide down below waters ? Plus 5 dollirs per bag for trash it a little low class
Very friendly, very helpful dock staff - beautiful, serene location - a lovely haven in a busy world
Complete ripoff and scam due to THEIR error. Bear in mind I have stayed at this marina several times in the last few years and have been sailing for over 40 years. When we arrived, I was told I would be docking on the end of one of their finger piers. This dock space was totally inadequate for my 34' sailboat as the pillings were way too far apart. This space was more suited for a much larger boat. After trying to get the boat to sit right for 15 minutes with the dock attendant I decided it wasn't going to work and didn't want to damage my boat. We asked if they had anything else available and was told no. We opted to stay on a mooring instead and figured we would be credited some of the dockage fee towards the mooring cost. Nope. Was told that "cancellations need to be 24 hours in advance for refund" Even though it was THEIR mistake booking us on an unsuitable pier. So not only did I pay my docking fee(which I COULDNT use), but also had to pay an additional $45 for the mooring as well. I will NEVER use Cuttyhunk marina again and will spread the word to my many boating friends about their poor customer service.
beautiful spot. nothing really open yet but a very relaxing stay in the harbor. Harbormaster has a notice posted that there will be no WIFI for 2018...this seems almost impossible in a location with basically no cell service and no other net access available...bring a book!
We were assisted with docking as it was very windy. Our welcome was genuine and Dylan was very helpful. We love going to Cuttyhunk and usually stay on a mooring so this was a treat!
Basic tie up docks. No amenities other than water and electric. The dockmaster who is also the policeman will help you tie up. But the point is, Cuttyhunk is a slice of heaven. Mooring, dock, just go!
I want to start by saying the harbor master was exceptionally patient and friendly. He hung around to make sure we were tied in tight and ready for our stay. He even provided some very helpful insight and suggestions. The facility was clean and well organized. The only reason it missed getting five stars was no floating docks. They were all fixed height.
ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PLACES TO REST RELAX AND MEET GREAT BOATERS
LOVE CUTTYHUNK! Quiet and relaxing marina, always slips available even last minute. Great walking, views and food on the island with few people. Great place to disappear for the weekend.
What a wonderful gem! Hope it never gets discovered!
Quiet location. Fixed docks with 4-5 ft tidal range made getting on and aff the boat challenging. Very minimal town and services. Dock hand doubled as security and provided minimal help. Great steamed lobster dinner from lobster shack at the end of the pier. Overall, okay, but I can check it off my list. No pumpout facilities in 2017.
Happy island. Family and dog friendly.
Very nice. Easy port with a friendly harbormaster. The scene was more mellow than in the past. While people were still having a good time, the partying in the slips seems to have quieted down by say 10:00.
Great place to stay!!!! Will def come back.
Marina is perfect...what you see is what you get; no pretension, very basic and don't come for the bathrooms. George and assistants are helpful and courteous as always. We will see you again next year!
We love Cuttyhunk. It is a quiet paradise that never disappoints. It is has everything you need. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The islanders love their island and are dedicated to maintaining its simplicity. They had fireworks Saturday for the first time and they were excellent. We can't wait to return. I
beautiful place, friendly people, no complaints
Quaint island complimented with a great Marina staff. The Marina staff is one of the nicest you'll find on the Cape. They go out of their way to make sure your ok. The island has enough food venues close to the dock to suplinemt your onboard essentials; from fresh made breakfast sandwiches, to excellent seafood, to pizzas up the road a bit - all were good. The island is easy to walk and see the different views.
We have loved coming to Cuttyhunk for many years, with our children and as a couple. It's a wonderful island to visit to relax and enjoy simple pleasures in a beautiful environment. The marina is great and the partnership with Dockwa just makes reservations even more simple. Everyone at the marina is helpful and friendly. Our slip had a perfect view of the first fireworks sponsored by Cuttyhunk. We sat on our bow and enjoyed the show with delicious ice cream cones (always the last purchase of the day when visiting the island). Now for the reason why we only gave a 4 star rating: the restrooms. When we arrived on Friday, the restrooms were not very tidy and trash barrels were full in the mens and womens rooms. During our stay, that never changed, and the barrels were overflowing early Sunday morning before we left the marina. Toilet facilities are extremely limited on the island. All of the new vendors being added at the landing and events like the fireworks to appeal to increased visitors to Cuttyhunk make providing good, clean, sanitary restroom an absolute necessity. Please make it a priority in the future.
We love Cuttyhunk! Marina staff is welcoming and helpful!
Interesting place for a brief stay. Friendly locals. No floating docks and few side tie docks; most dockage is pilings only with no finger slips and cost of $2.50/ft plus electricity ($20) No pumpout as of 2017.
Delightful, charming marina. A step back into the past. You will leave refreshed.. great pizza too! The people are accommodating and kind! Quaint gift shop is a must stop to pick up a local token.
Beautiful and relaxing as always.
Great service. Came in afterhours, at 2030hrs, but dockmaster was monitoring the radio and took care of us. Nice!
Booked two nights in a slip (non-floating dock). After first night, was asked to move to another spot on very short notice, as that numbered slip had been promised to another, part of a group that wanted to be together. Hectic move since new occupant had already arrived and was circling in harbor. Just as well...the 'together' group partied heartily until after midnight on a Friday night. Loudly. Very loudly. Next time I'll take a mooring.
Absolutely love the place and I am trying to figure out when we can go back
Always a nice, well protected, stopover.
