Hello All,

Menemsha Harbor is currently open to transient boaters.

We ask that you please respect the rules to keep our staff and customers safe.

Thank You,

Capt. Ryan Rossi, Harbormaster

About


Our goal is to maintain an organized, safe, and courteous harbor which is family oriented. Menemsha Harbor welcomes recreational boaters and commercial fishermen. The village's historic harbor serves as the point of departure for local fishermen, some from multi-generational fishing families. Besides charter fishing, other possibilities for recreation are the public beach adjacent to the harbor and the bicycle ferry across Menemsha Pond to Aquinnah, as well as many excellent places to get freshly cooked seafood. It is also home of some of the most dramatic sunsets in New England.

Our harbor is currently dredged to 9 feet MLW, and has two inner harbor moorings that we normally RAFT up to three sailing vessels on. DUE TO STATE GUIDELINES WE ARE ONLY ALLOWING ONE BOAT PER MOORING. We also have eight moorings outside the harbor, along Menemsha beach, which are single occupancy. These moorings are exposed to everything except a Southerly wind so they can get uncomfortable in adverse weather conditions. If you are a sailing vessel, and request a mooring, we will automatically assume that you want an inner harbor mooring, unless otherwise requested. If we do not have an inner harbor mooring, we will place you on an outside mooring and notify you through the Dockwa chat feature. If you are a power vessel requesting a mooring, the only option will be the outer harbor mooring field. We do not have a launch service, but do have a free dinghy dock for our customers to use.

We offer dock space, in the form of slips, and linear dockage. We have 17 transient slips, and a 120 foot linear dock for vessels up to 55 feet LOA. When requesting a dock space, we will assume you want a slip on our floating transient dock. If we don't have space available for your vessel on the floating dock, you will be placed in a slip on a fixed dock. If there is no space for a slip, you will be placed on the linear dock (Dutcher Dock Bulkhead). We no longer raft vessels on the bulkhead. On the opposite side of the harbor, we have space for larger vessels, up to 85 feet in length. If you book a reservation and receive notification that you have been denied, please call the Harbormaster's office directly to discuss other available dates. The Harbormaster's office handles all reservations, and confirms or denies all requests, so please do not call DOCKWA with reservation or availability questions. If you have any specific dock that you would like to be assigned to, please let us know using the special request section on the reservation page, and we will do everything we can to satisfy your request.

We look forward to seeing you in Menemsha!

Approach


After entering through the jetties, take an immediate turn to port to enter the harbor. Our two inner harbor moorings are located in the middle of the harbor towards the Coast Guard boathouse from the main entrance. These moorings will require rafting, so please be aware that there may be other vessels already on the mooring when you arrive. We recommend that all three vessels run their own line to the mooring ball after tying alongside. Our transient dockage is immediately to Port after entering through the jetties. Our slips have free standing pilings and most vessels prefer to enter stern first. We recommend that all vessels have bow lines and spring lines ready before entering any slip, as there is often a strong current present. The Menemsha Harbor Department is standing by on VHF Ch.9 from 7am to 7pm daily to direct you to your mooring or dock assignment. We ask that boaters hail us on the radio before entering the harbor to keep traffic density to a minimum.

Great stay during some snotty weather. Moorings were taken so we had to tie up at a dock. It’s all stern in and a right squeeze, which is not much fun, for a 45’ full keel bot with a non functioning bow thruster. But the harbor master and his assts were a big help and all was well

This was our first time at Menemsha. The docks are not floating so the tie-up is stern-in and you run the lines to the pilings. A dock hand helped us tie up. You can go bow-in, but our 35' boat did not allow exit off the bowsprit so we had to dinghy to the dock. The benefit to bow-in is that your cockpit will face the inner harbor view which is much nicer than facing a stone wall and a parking lot; and also provides more privacy. If you have a dinghy it's fun to explore the big "pond". The beach is right there and the sunsets are spectacular. Several fish markets offer take-out of both cooked and raw fish. TIP: Order early in the day and/or be prepared for a long wait, both at the ordering and pick-up windows. Long lines at dinner time were so bad that we would not do this again. One place actually closed early because they ran out of much of their menu. Dining options are very limited. Don't overlook the Menemsha Galley where service was much better but it's a longer walk and more of a lunch menu. There are a few small shops. Not so good for biking as the roads are all narrow and busy. Overall, though, worth the stay. We'll come back next year.

Menemsha is not to be missed. The marina is well run and the dock staff are very helpful. This is especially important because most of the slips on the floating dock require a stern-in landing. On the day we arrived the winds were 20-25 kts, making docking particularly difficult in a sailboat. But the dock staff helped with directions and handling lines and made it relatively easy.

The Menemsha Harbor Master, Capt. Ryan Rossi and the rest of the staff working under his direction are outstanding! A few weeks ago, we rented a slip for about a week and had opportunities to interact with him directly and observe him working with other boaters. In every case, he was patient, professional, and courteous. Even more impressive was the fact that when other boaters were incapable of bringing their boats into their slip on their own, Ryan skillfully positioned the other boats to allow their entrance into their assigned slip. Throughout our entire stay, we observed Ryan and his staff interact and assist all of the boaters and maintain activity in the harbor. In no case, did he or any other of his staff accept a tip indicating they are state employees. Truly impressive and honest. Even upon our departure, Ryan assisted us at the fuel dock and pump out. Compared to our boating experiences staying at other harbors, we find the Menemsha Harbor Master, Capt. Ryan Rossi, to be exceptional in every way. The combination of his knowledge, experience, skill, and calm demeanor is unmatched.

Stern in docking between pilings is a challenge for a single engine trawler, especially with a steady 13kt breeze but the dock hands and harbormaster in his specially padded boat made it almost easy. Their assistance was crucial and led to a successful docking and departure a day later. It's a very quaint location with beautiful sunsets, a public beach and breakwater with walking path, a few shops and lots of natural beauty. We hope to return next year.

My boat is best suited for the opposite side of the harbor (near the USCG jetty). Ergo I reserve Slip 9, which is only available to those boaters who do NOT overnight on their vessels. Upon arrival (at the appointed hour), I was told that the prior renter hadn't vacated and was asked to wait until the boater could be located. Unfortunately, the dock staff had forgotten that I reserved Slip 9, which was available at the time. So I wasted half an hour waiting for the attendant to ask me whether I was planning to overnight on my boat so they could place me in Slip 9. The attendant was polite and encouraging, but time is time (especially on vacation). For this trip, Slip 9 was merely a parking place since we spent the next two nights on Chappaquidick.

Nice spot, very small basin. Minus 1 star for the following: showers closed due to the WuFlu which was not their fault. Larsen’s food only ok, clam chowder was watery, lobster dip needs way more lobster, as it was nearly undetectable. But service exceptionally friendly. As for the mooring, we assumed it was located in Menemsha Pond up Menemsha Creek but not so! The two inner moorings are in Menemsha Basin. This should be emphasized to those unfamiliar. Otherwise great and friendly, helpful people.

It was our second stay at Menemsha. It is such a beautiful and peaceful setting. The harbor master and staff are always helpful, especially with docking when the current is running, which will push the boat port or starboard (flow and ebb) when backing in. There are no fingers so you have to exit the boat from the stern. The staff is great, they even stopped by all the boats to ask if we needed anything before they went home for the evening! We left trying to figure out when we might come back. I'm thinking the fall might be a great time if the MV Derby doesn't fill up all the available slips.

Have many boating friends that love Menemsha, so when the opportunity arose for us to spend a night there on a mooring we took it to see what’s to love. Good things started right off as the Harbormaster (Ryan I believe) walked us right in over the radio after we announced it was our first time. One of the most friendly greetings we’ve ever received. Since we have a dog, that involved many trips to the excellent dingy dock. Our only regret was the high wind that curtailed our dingy touring, but that will necessitate many more return trips to Menemsha.

Menemsha has always been our favorite harbor to visit for over 30 years. Initially I was concerned about Dockwa availability but everything worked out well. New Harbormaster Ryan Rossi and Wharfingers Daniel and Adan couldn’t have been nicer. They checked every night and morning to see how we were doing. We’re low maintenance and didn’t need anything but it was a nice touch. We felt like we were on a cruise ship with nightly roll down service. The new Harbormaster is off to a great start. Thanks for everything looking forward to returning end of Aug. Bill Donovan Overbudget

While the location is beautiful the outer harbor moorings are no place to stay if you're looking to rest. We moved into the pond to avoid getting sick from the chop that was beating on us. Challenging effort to navigate the channel and pond at night. Not recommended but found a much more peaceful place in the pond.

We had another amazing week in Menemsha. I found the assistants to the harbormaster to be attentive and professional. Everyone was helpful and very willing to accommodate any requests. The entire operation seems to be running smoothly. Looking forward to next year!

Great spot for relaxing. Awesome sunsets. Great shelter from weather. The harbor master team at Menemsha we’re great. Docking with the pillings can be a bit tricky if you’re not used to them. Stopped there for 2 nights. Dockside water and electric. You’re steps from the beach and fishmongers. Goto the Menemsha Fish Market for the best chowder or bisque and a lobster salad roll. Amazing. In Menemsha you can go off the grid.

While the area is very pretty and quiet, the little harbor is not a great place to overnight. Very crowded - 3 boats per mooring. You sneeze and a bunch of people say - Gesundheit. Also, depending on wind direction, the fish stench is nauseating. BUT - anchor just to the right of the harbor entrance and you will have an absolutely beautiful experience. Nice beach, beautiful sunset and peace and quiet.
