What a great experience! Josh and his team couldn’t have been more helpful. We had reservations for 2 nights and stayed for 6 because it was just too hard to leave. Dog friendly, scenic, great restaurants nearby, easy provisioning, squeaky clean and the best hospitality. Special thanks to the crew for keeping our boat secure in the 👁of tropical storm Henri! We’ll be back!

The staff was very friendly and helpful once we're got onshore. They were difficult to get a hold of by radio and phone. The amenities were excellent. Restrooms, showers, free laundry, comfortable and nice Cabana sitting area and Beach chairs to lounge on. Free ice was another plus. Their waterside restaurant very alluring but they had no reservations available for two weeks. It would've been nice if they set aside a table for their transient guests?

I stayed here last weekend on a mooring. There was live music on the dock and drinks served right to us on the patio! As a mooring customer, it was great being able to use all the dockside facilities including the showers, private beach, paddle boards and kayaks and laundry! Although outside the breakwater, it was incredibly peaceful. We will be staying here again!

We had a great stay at Vineyard Haven Marina. Being outside the breakwater was not an issue during our stay. The Marina staff were very welcoming, helpful, and patient as I had more than on request regarding changes in our reservation. The the available launch service was perfect and it was an added treat watching some young budding sailors work on their training skills (w/o being an obstruction in any way). Will definitely be back!

The marina staff was helpful and accommodating. Martha’s Vineyard is beautiful and well worth 6 nights on a mooring ball. The dingy dock is right at a bus pick up terminal to get you around the vineyard. There is so much to see and are much history here. The great thing about this harbor is it’s proximity to Tisbury and Vineyard Haven and easy access to bus transportation. A Stop and Shop for groceries is only one block front m the dingy dock. The big negative is that the mooring balls are outside the breakwater in the outer harbor, which meant lots of rocking and rolling independent of which way the wind blows. If I returned to Martha’s Bineyard, I would check out Edgartown or Oak Bluffs.

This is our first time renting a mooring that did not include launch service in the price of the mooring. Although they stated the launch service is by a separate firm they never mentioned paying $4.00 each way, each person. This launch service is the only one in the harbor and uses only on small modified fishing boat as the launch. They also service the Black Dog tall ship, 40+ passengers, put on and off by that one launch in 3 to 4 trips back and forth, the ship sails a few times every day. If you're trying to get to your mooring when this happens, you're forced to wait about 45min. The facilities are fine once you get there and those renting a slip should enjoy their stay. We would not use their mooring rentals again.

Stayed on a mooring. Their dockside facilities, including the sup/kayak loaners were excellent. Garde east restaurant associated was excellent for lunch. A few more showers would be nice.

The marina is fine. Just not a quiet mooring. Ferry traffic was fine but idiots racing to lunch in town didn’t cut their wake until the breakwater. Better than anchoring, but not by much

Very tight slips, next to impossible to get into the slip they assigned. I am on my 29th boat and needed every skill I have to get in and out of the slip. We had to move our boat at 7:00 am to allow an other boat to get out. The dock master John is totally incompetent. We have stayed here many times over the years but this will be our last! They need Liz back she new how to run a dock.

We stayed last weekend on June 25th and the 26th. staff was nice, facility was nice and clean. The problem was we were at the end of the dock and the boat at the front of the dock put his gangway across the dock which blocked everyone else's passage. several people asked him to move his gangway so we would not have to climb over it and he wouldn't. we asked several of the staff to say something to him and they would not. It took an 80 year old women who could not get around his gangway to calling the boat owner out and screaming at him to move it so she could get around it with her cane. He finally moved it. It was so disappointing that the staff would not do anything about this idiot that i would not recommend staying there as I will not again.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived after hours and just tied up to the dock. The restaurant manager, Patrick, gave us the bathroom code and helped us out. We got situated the next day; the staff were very nice and accommodating. The attached restaurant is upper-end and the food was delicious. There is only one shower per gender which made getting ready in the morning a little inconvenient. I would likely stay here should I visit again.

My stay here was really nice. Misha, Josh and Maddie we're very helpful and attentive especially Misha, he explained alot to me about the area and where to go and was instrumental in helping me get comfortable boating in the area as it was my first time venturing out on the ocean. I also forgot to give a shout out to Sydney at the restaurant. She was verywelcoming and kind. Thank you guys and gals I will be back, hopefully with a bigger boat!

With our Med season canceled last minute due to European travel still being a bit wonky. We decided to plan a New England season last minute, without much luck. Josh and Mady not only stepped up they saved the day. Providing dockage on MV, but also helped us secure dockage in both Boston and Cape Cod. Well done to the dock staff for saving the season.

I needed dock space last week for a mechanical failure while heading north to Maine for the season. Even though they weren't open for the season yet Josh the dock master was great and got us a slip for 3 days. He even worked with their other marina in Falmouth to have a tech come over and get us up and running again! We'll be back for sure on our way south in the Fall. Good luck this season. Thanks so much for the above and beyond service!!!

With the beautiful weather last weekend we were fortunate enough to be in Vineyard Haven and get a day slip at Vineyard Haven Marina. We hadn't been here in several years but the renovations and updates that have been done are breath taking. We look forward to being back again soon.

We were stopping into MV for the night before heading out to Nantucket to meet friends. Came across this little gem of a Marina that could accommodate our 50' Azimut. The staff was friendly and responsive. They also recommended a few places to go that were still open on the island. My friends and I will be using them for our Vineyard trips moving forward. Thanks team at VHM!

When I call on the radio the first time, it was static. I called and they answered quickly and informed me the channel to call back on and it worked perfectly. When I arrived the young workers were very polite and helpful. They helped provided me with information about the area and what to see and good places to eat. Excellence service and attentive to my needs. Would recommend this marina to my friends.

Arrived mid afternoon. There was no one to answer the radio to tell us what mooring to pick up. A rival company told us which moorings belonged to VHM. Their voice mail was full so we couldn't leave a message. When we went ashore the office was open but their was no one around. Papers and other stuff were all over the table...We understand they fired their manager earlier in the summer, leaving no one running the place. No doubt things will be better next year.

Marina Response:
We are very sorry to hear about your issues last season. We have a new management team and dock master in place for 2021 and are in the process of making updates to the property, restaurant and adding to our amenities. We look forward to seeing you again and providing a much better experience for you and your crew.

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 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.
