Dockwa reservation worked great. Dockmaster guided us to our slip professionally. Docks are great. Showers and rest rooms are new and clean but a very long walk from the slips. Heavy commercial and recreational fishing use of the marina means lots of boat engine noises, beginning at 4:30 am. Dock attendant went above and beyond in bringing a bag of ice to our dock for us so we didn't have to walk all the way. The Pilot House restaurant was great for dinner and the outside bar area on the lawn was wonderful, with great live music.

This is great marina with friendly, helpful staff, clean facilities and good access to restaurants, coffee,etc. Be sure to go to "off the grid" for delicious bbq. We would have given it 5 stars but their bathrooms have inadequate ventilation and are horribly hot even when it's not that hot outside.

Reserved a slip thru dockwa and got quick confirmation. Unfortuneatly we arrrived an hour earlier than scheduled as we picked up good speed thru the canal. The marina was not quite ready for us and there was difficulty in communicating via phone or radio as it was lunchtime. Regardless the Dock hands were able to help direct us to our designated spot. Facilities were very clean and convenient to restaurants Dockwa confirmation was quick and responsive. Dockhand came out at our normal arrival time and gave us details regarding passwords and bathroom combos

A wonderful stay here as always, a calm, quiet spot to spend the night, with excellent restaurants in walking distance and very clean facilities. Whenever we are headed up or down the canal, this is our go-to spot to stop!

Hi We arrived with 38' cutter Christina Grant at 04:30 after a direct passage from Nova Scotia, hoping to purchase fuel, clear Customs and continue on with least delay. We did purchase $150 in fuel and were moved off the fuel dock to another berth to await Customs. We were finally advised that Customs will not come to Sandwich and told to go to a port of entry on Buzzards Bay, but by then the current in the Canal was adverse so we could not proceed. We finally got underway at 12:30 but, having been in the marina for more than 4 hours, were charged an additional $108 in dockage fees. Overall it was a short but very expensive visit. Staff were friendly and showers clean. I would not stop here again in the future unless it were unavoidable.

We enjoyed our stay at Sandwich Marina. The restrooms look brand new and were very clean. The laundry machines were very nice and reasonably priced. The only issue we had is dock guys put us in the wrong slip so after getting tied up we had to move. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly.

The people were very helpful and nice. They called us when we were running late, and had a dock hand stay late to meet us. The facilities are excellent, I'll definitely stop here again my next time through the canal.

Oct 4, 2017 4:30 pm EDT. Called the marina via cell phone about an hour out. Auto-attendant transferred me to a person who picked up the phone and immediately hung it up. Tried calling 2 more times but no answer after auto-attendant transfer. Tried contacting the marina on ch 16, then 9 and then 8. After a couple of minutes, someone responded on ch 8. I told the person I was about an hour out and requested a face tie since I had never docked the new to me boat before and the wind was blowing at over 25 knots. I was told to pull up to the fuel dock and they would take care of me. When I arrived the winds were a steady 30, gusting to 40 knots. I pulled up to the fuel dock and the person in the shack looked up but did not come out. As I got closer to the dock I tapped my horn and he came out. I explained that I was told to pull up to the fuel dock upon arrival. He asked who told me that and I said the person who answered on ch 8, to which he replied, "That was me". I told him I had a reservation and gave him my name. He said I wasn't on the list. I showed him my email confirmation (Sandwich Marina reservation #ZQEF4JLQ). He saw the email was from the dockmaster and made a less than pleasant remark. I told him the reservation was for 2 x 30 amp circuits and asked if the power was on at the nearby power pole. He responded yes. He cleated my bow line and told me that the next face dock south was where I should be. However, there was a sailboat already there leaving only about 15 feet of dock for my 42' boat. He told me I had to be gone by 6am and then left. When I went to plug in I found the power pole had a padlock on one side and only one 30 amp circuit on the opposite side. Luckily I had additional cables. I extended one line and ran it further down the dock to the next pole. The next morning I was on the dock at 5:50 and met another marina employee who was opening up. I related what happened. He found a slip for me and helped tie my bow once I got in the slip. Overall, very disappointed in how things were handled... the poor phone & radio communications, the power pole issue, the 6am departure mandate, etc. Not a very good experience, nor one I would want to repeat.

Excellent clean and spacious showers and toilet facilities. Very poor markings on slips. Easy to see "D" slips. "C" was totally unidentifiable without guidance from the Harbormaster's office.

Lovely Marina and town. Excellent facilities and great restaurants and things to do nearby. The one big issue was that we didn't sleep the entire nights as fishing boats were being launched and departing from 1 am and returning around 6 am. ALL NIGHT LONG!!!

Nice new marina office with restroom and shower facilities. There is also a new restaurant nearby Fisherman's Wharf, in addition to the other two existing nearby eateries. Shopping a 10 min walk. Revisited the Cape Cod Visitor Center which is very informative. Nice message from staff prior to stay and friendly dock assistants. Some confusion about our slip assignment which was straightened out. Note: No able to call marina staff directly on telephone.

Dock attendant said it was mandatory that I sign up with Dockwa in order to stay at the Marina. Dockwa May work for some, but does not work for me! Please cancel my subscription! As for the Marina, not a trash can in sight! Docks in rough shape, no help to tie up, winds 25nts SW, etc. As a full time delivery Capt for the past 35 yrs. I will use the Marina for fuel, but plan not to lay over.

Fabulous facility, services, and staff - at a critical location! This is the harbor of refuge if you are waiting for a favorable tide to transit the canal to the west (Ebb) or need to rest after an east (flood) passage. The docks are well laid out, in great condition, and well-equipped. There is an accessible fuel dock and pumpout services are handy. The shore facilities are completely new - harbormaster office, restrooms, and terrific restaurant! All you could want.

Marina was very convenient for passing thru the canal. Arrived late left early so we didn't spend anytime ashore. The prepay and check in thru dockwa was easy.

Stopped in after dock ... stayed near the fuel dock - the attendant knocked on the cabin door at 6:30am (before opening) to ask if we wanted to fuel and be on our way. It was a nice gesture. Pumps have auto cutoff and 20gpm. A walk to town is easy with a market/bank/liquor store etc. Dock hands helpful and cordial. An excellent stop.
