Mattapoisett Harbor is centrally located on Buzzards Bay, approx. 10 miles across to Woods Hole (an easy beam reach), away from cape Cod so no traffic. We have seasonal mooring rentals with unlimited launch service as well as many guest moorings for an overnight stay or longer. We haul and store about 250 sail and power vessels for the off-season.
Mattapoisett is a lovely harbor, wide open to Buzzards Bay. We were fortunate to have calm conditions for the weekend, this is not always so here. There is a launch service, a dinghy dock, and a pub with decent food.
The boatyard directed us to the visitors moorings. The harbor is very nice, protected and very few fishermen to roll past you early in the morning. Had a great sleep. Visitors are directed to register with the Harbourmaster. Ince that is done, your dinghy is permitted to tie up at the public wharf free for 3 days. The downside to Mattapoiset is the lack of amenities. There is no grocery store nearby, no laundry service, both of which we needed. The people at the Harbourmaster office where very friendly. It is a nice place to unwind.
Our mooring in Mattapoisett was well built and secure, if a bit bumpy with the prevailing SW wind. Launch service can take some time as it appears there are two launchs to service approximately 600 moorings. That said, the launch operators responded promptly and picked folks up in the order in which they called. This is also a very large harbor. Personell at Mattapoiset Marine we’re very helpful and the rates were the best we received on our two week cruise.
Beautiful harbor, large secure moorings, friendly courteous staff. It’s not the Ritz, but comfortable (unless the wind blows from the southeast.
Great Stay! Very nice harbor, not a lot to do ashore. We radioed MBY upon entering the harbor and were instructed to find an open orange mooring on our port side, of which there were none available. We did find an open orange mooring further in, on our starboard side, which turned out to be a great location. Took the launch service into shore and had an ice cream a the shack on the town pier, just a short walk away. There is not much in walking distance from the drop off point, the ice cream shack, a general store, an inn with a restaurant and a spa. The harbor was quiet and we had a great rest. My only real complaint is that the morning launch driver was going too fast for my liking and throwing some wake fairly early.
