We cam in in a nasty front and Tom was there to tie us up. Wind was howling and he handled all the lines himself. Thank you Tom! Marina is a great location to walk to everywhere. Quiet at night, bit rocky during the day but quiets right down. Had a great night in the city and the price here is so much better than elsewhere

Excellent service from the time we radioed in until we pulled away from the dock. Tom, the dockmaster, was kind, helpful and readily available at all times to assist. The location couldn't be any better along the Boston waterfront with easy access to downtown, North end, the parks, transportation, etc. The marina is very well-maintained.

In the midst of Boston’s fabulous waterfront, is a quiet refuge, an understated and well tended marina where all are welcome. Dock master Tom is always on hand to assist arrivals, departures and just about anything else you might need. The rates are quite reasonable (if not the best) for such an enviable location. India Wharf Marina is literally next to the world renowned NE Aquarium. Just a few steps further and you can explore Bostons most desirable locations like Faneuil Hall and the Freedom Trail. For a unique and beautiful walk, I highly recommend The Greenway and the Harbor Walk right from the docks. The fabulous food and nightlife Boston offers is there for your taking. Super easy to get an Uber or Lyft anywhere, but a ride on the MBTA is as local as you can get and there are a number of close options depending on your desired destination. We sailed our 38 Pearson from Salem to Boston in about 4 hrs. A delightful trip to an incredible and historic port. There is so much do and enjoy and no better place to base your “Boaters Visit” than India Wharf Marina. We will definitely return!

Marina Response:
Thank you so much, Deena. It is great to hear you enjoyed the location and were able to enjoy so much of the city. The harbor walk is a great way to spend time! Thanks for choosing India Wharf, looking forward to your next visit.

We arrived at India Wharf in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday. Boston Harbor was Mayham with all of the boat traffic, but a pleasant harbor cruise that demonstrated Boston’s Waterfront improvements all around. India Wharf was easy to get into and the dock hands were great. You will experience a bit of rocking with all the boat traffic, but by sundown it’s subsided and we enjoyed the evening and most importantly a good nights sleep. As mentioned in the description, we were perfectly positioned to take advantage of the many, many Boston amenities. We chose a wonderful dinner at Joe’s Waterfront restaurant (the Bouillabaisse Is highly recommend) and then a stroll through the North End where I grab a cappuccino. Finally back to the boat where we relaxed with a nice harbor view. This is a great deal and a great stop, and highly recommended for a short Boston getaway. PS - there is an electric boat rental company operating on these docks but there is NO issue with this whatsoever. The staff is courteous and respectful and some the clients provide some great entertainment.

Marina Response:
Thank you, Robert. It is great to hear that our staff served you well and you were able to access the area. Joe's is one of our favorites. Thank you for choosing India Wharf and taking the time to leave us such a kind a review. Looking forward to your next stay at the marina. Best, the crew at India Wharf Marina

Marina Response:
We thank you for choosing an India Wharf marina. Sorry that it was a little rough.

The location and price make this place a really good value. Beyond electric, water and trash there are no other amenities. The dock we tied up to was new but others have not been replaced. There is quite a bit of wake during the day from various ferries and commercial vessels, however it does subside at night. There is a pump out boat but I was told it didn't have the proper attachment to service sailboats. If you can deal with no restroom or pump out this is a good spot.

You will be 100% refunded. We called the phone number on your Dockwa reservation. We got no answer. We apologize for your negative experience. Please send messages through Dockwa. I can respond very quickly to the message. Your refund will be taken care of today or tomorrow. Thanks India Wharf

The dockside manager (Tommy) and owner (Jay) are first-rate ... very helpful and easy to work with. The location is perfect ... literally 100 yds to Aquarium or State Street venues. No showers at dock, but basic bathroom facility available dockside. Also, surprisingly little wave action at dock given central harbor location.

The hosts, Tom and Jay,could not have been more gracious and welcoming. The location is supurb. A little more up front info with pump out would have been great given there are no bathrooms (which they clearly claim are not present) would have been helpful. We had a pretty good load of packages sent there and they were GREAT about that.

A great value considering the location. The marina does not offer any amenities, however, and the docks are old and wobbly. Some pilings within the slips are unprotected, so be prepared with fenders and/or have rub-rails. Electric (50a) and water were available. A Trader Joe's grocery store and laundromat are within walking distance, albeit a hefty walk. Access to the T (and thus airport) is very close, a great place to stay and enjoy Boston or pickup/dropoff crew and passengers. Public bike docks are nearby for easy bike rental and excellent city access. Ditto with hop-on/off tour buses. The North End restaurants are also nearby. The dock staff was professional, helpful, and very responsive to Dockwa messages. A few growing pains with scheduling seem to persist, I recommend calling to confirm any reservations if you have unique slip requirements. Very busy on summer weekends, but not bad on the weekdays. Shipping items here requires a special office address, call ahead if you would like to receive packages.

Had an excellent experience at India Wharf for our day trip! Tom, the manager was so attentive and gave us a call before we were scheduled to dock to let us know where to go. The docks and the platform are new and in great condition. The marina is only about a five minute walk from a bunch of great restaurants and Quincy Market! It was also great to see that they had hand sanitizer everywhere and signs encouraging social distancing/ wearing masks. Would definitely recommend to everyone; this place is a gem!

Location is excellent. The dock master, Tom texted me early in the morning to confirm our reservation. I texted him 15 minutes before arrival and then called him 5 minutes before approach (not sure if they monitor VHF radio). He was waiting for us at the dock, assisted us in and trying up. Very nice! There are no amenities, but did have 30amp service. In some ways this small marina is better than others i have stayed at in Boston where the ferry boats come in creating a huge wake slamming your boat in the dock. Not an issue here!. I would dock here again.

No one answered the vhf radio or telephone. With a storm cell running through we took a mooring owned by the Sailing Club. The shuttle for the Sailing Club then contacted Tommy who was then able to guide us in. The whole place will soon get filled in to make parking and a high rise. I do not recommend this place. It is a great location though.
