The Port of New Bedford invites you to stay at Pope’s Island Marina and experience why we call it Destination New Bedford. Our friendly Marina Staff and Harbor Attendants are here to ensure a welcoming and enjoyable stay. There is so much to see and do, from visiting the world’s largest whaling museum to eating the world’s freshest seafood. The launch will connect you to the historic downtown district, restaurants, galleries and key attractions. Stroll the cobblestone streets of America’s #1 Fishing Port or take a bike ride to Fort Taber and the Military Museum. Our season begins April 15th and ends October 31st, but feel free to contact the office in the winter or early spring if you or your group would like to make arrangements for a visit with us next season. Upon arrival, be sure to ask one of our Dock Attendants for an informational packet that highlights some activities as well as dining options within and around the Harbor. If it is fuel or service your vessel needs, you will find it in The Port of New Bedford. So make your next port of call, New Bedford.
Friendly, helpful folks. They offered a substitute mooring when the original one was too close to a big cat.
Very accommodating, clean and peaceful marina. Close to shops and restaurants. Penny is a great person to work with. Prices very reasonable. Good docks and good power.
Great stay at Pope's. The Marina staff were great and very helpful with suggestions on things to do and places to eat. The launch to both New Bedford and Fairhaven was easy and convenient. The whaling museum is a real must see! We will stay again
A well maintained yard close to all of the amenities. Marina supply store, restaurant, hardware store and even a Dunkin Donuts right across the street. Marina employees and boat owners very friendly. Enjoyed our stay.
Just took a mooring for one night. Did not go ashore.
One of two mooring pennants was wrapped tightly around the chain under the ball. The guys who maintain moorings for Pope' s were not at work on Saturday afternoon. With the help of Cathy and Casey and the New Bedford launch, I untangled the pennant. Other pennant was encrusted with barnacles and associated marine life making a mess of my foredeck and varnish. Maintenance is needed.
This our first year at popes island marina. The staff is very friendly and will help out with anything you need them for. The facility is excellent with bathrooms and showers, they have a picnic area with plenty of chairs and a couple of grilles for members to use. The slips are very easy to access. They have electric and water hook ups. Free wifi for members. They also have transient slips and morings for your day or overnight visits. Our slip is located on the F dock which is located on the west side of the main pier and we really like it. Protected from waves and wind and very easy to navigate even at dead low tide. At dead low tide we still have a depth of 6.5 feet when leaving our slip. They also have a waste pump out located at the end of the main center pier. I recommend popes island marina for anyone looking for friendly service and extremely friendly boaters.
