It was first time visiting this location. I thought I was getting a dock slip. What I got was rafting to a boat my size along the dock and angling my stern to a dock finger. When asked how would we go out to explore they said people who come here don't leave for the weekend. They were polite but I would not go back.

We were moored outside the breakwater and despite fairly calm weather, we endured an uncomfortable night with the fetch coming into the harbor. Showers at Vineyard Haven Marina are reserved for customers who have slips and those available to mooring customers are at the Harbormaster’s Office, and they leave a little to be desired. The launch service was good but a little sporadic in the late evening.

The mooring field outside the breakwater can be quite rolly, and was the night we stayed. A long dinghy ride to shore. But everything is right there, just off the ferry dock (including a West Marine!). Filled up with water at the town pier. A dry town, so BYOB.

1. Mooring was outside the break water and was rocky. 2. Vineyard Haven Marina does not offer facilities to boaters on moorings. As these points were likely provided in some reference I should have look more carefully to know what to expect. 3. Town dock facilities are available for a fundamental shower but there was only of two showers operating and a wait was typical.

Great location. Excellent and helpful staff. Even the restaurant on premises is excellent. The only problem is that there is no usable WiFi service which we now consider to be a basic utility.

We arrived in foul weather and followed the instructions provided, there was no answer on our VHF hail. Eventually I called the Marina number by mobile number, I got a recording and left a message. I was called within the next 30 minutes and told that the mooring I was randomly on was OK. Though the mooring pennant was too thick to go through my bow fairlead, the only advice I could get was try another one, we were in very windy conditions.

I was VERY disappointed. Staying outside of the breakwater was a huge mistake. Too much boat traffic, and the wakes left behind from the inconsiderate (MANY) boaters resulted in a rocky experience us. Plus there doesn't seem to be any monitoring of the no-wake zone in that mooring field. I saw children swimming off the backs of their boats, while very inconsiderate people were zipping back and forth at high speed in their RIBs. They had absolutely no concern for the safety of those children or the wakes they left behind. I will never go back there again. Don't get me wrong. The people at Vineyard Haven Marina were actually great. But the location of that mooring field gets a big thumbs down from me. I recommend going inside Lagoon Pond next time.

Very easy to book through Dockwa. No problems with follow through once i radioed the marina. You have to radio a separate launch service to get ashore which i don’t think i read when i booked.

I well never stay at vineyard Haven outside the break water again. The boater’s in the area disregard the no wake zone. Leaving rocking all afternoon and evening. This was my worst experience on a mooring in 45 years of boating.

Great Harbor. We had a problem with the mooring immediately after picking it up (our fault). When we requested help there was none and we needed to call tow USA to help us. Otherwise great experience. We will come back

We were supposed to stay at Vineyard Haven Marina 6/18/18 but a small craft warning was issued by NOAA and my guests on the boat were uneasy with sailing in those conditions. I called Vineyard Haven to cancel, got only a recording, left a message explaining and canceling and left my phone number that they might contact me. Heard nothing back and see no credit on the card that was used. Even if they feel justified in keeping my fee it is negligent to not communicate.

Marina Response:
Unfortunately we never received a voice message, if you book through dockwa they have a chat response that works very efficiently to communicate changes to reservations. Dockwa also gives you an explanation as to why you did not receive a credit, it usually is do to the 72 hour cancelation policy, unfortunately we cannot predict the weather.

I did not realize when I booked the mooring in Vineyard Haven that the Marina's moorings are all outside the barrier. Also, as a mooring customer with the Marina you are not permitted to use the Marina's facilities. Facilities are only for dock customers. The moorings inside the barrier are managed by the Vineyard Haven Harbormaster. These moorings are first come first serve and you can use the facilities (showers) at the town beach. It was very rough and windy when we arrived. I was afraid if I spent time below I would become seasick. My whole family was uncomfortable. We ended up switching to a town mooring inside the barrier. I wish Dockwa made the mooring location clear before we booked.

One of my favorite destinations. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The overall facility is updated, very private and the bathrooms are always clean. The location is great, within walking distance of several restaurants and beaches. The private boaters lounge is a great bonus.

Marina staff not personal and somewhat standoffish. The mooring was pick your own, it was outside the breakwater exposed to any wind coming from the North. In addition it was exposed to everyone's wake entering the harbor or coming up Vineyard Haven Sound.

The moorings are not protected enough from general boat traffic and Ferry wakes in the channel and a North East wind. Kinda strange they don't have a "no wake zone."

VH Marina is not for sailboats I strongly urge you to change your affiliation. The marina has an attitude problem and is not very helpful
