We make a few trips a summer to OB. The 3 star this year is due to the Public Bathroom by Our Market. It was disgusting and the “after dark” crowd that hangs around there after it’s closed. I just wish the Marina had its own facilities. The staff at Marina gets a 5 star!!

Not sure if just the week we chose, the slip we were given or if OB is on a massive decline!?! We have had multiple issues with electrical and actually caught someone messing with it one night in the middle of the night. There is an oil slick from someone’s boat that is just lingering. We were right outside the public bathroom and the bus stop which meant we saw a lot of shady things I wish we hadn’t. The most alarming was the shady people who would hang out on the benches and scope out the boats. I actually caught someone trying to climb down on to another boat which I knew was not his. We also saw people over in the park across the way doing drugs right in the open. i would recommend an alternative location ...we will be staying in Edgartown next time.

This is our 20th year coming to Oak Bluffs Marina and we absolutely love it! Todd and his staff are fabulous :) Great harbor location within walking distance to beaches, parks, restaurants, shopping and all the fun on Circuit Avenue! Wonderful oceanfront golfing at Farm Neck Golf Course less than two miles away, can bike or take short Uber or cab ride if you want to explore other parts of the Island too! Bike rental and/or jeep rentals located directly across the street and both the Hy-Line Hyannis and Island Queen Falmouth ferries dock right there for any visiting family or friends. Self serve laundromat across the street that also offers wash and fold service and as an added plus found the WiFi to be very good this year!! Great staff and great place for lots of boating fun, would highly recommend for all!

This marina gets by on great location alone, and they must know it. Bathhouse is horrid— pay for showers via tokens, only two stalls (prepare to wait), and closes overnight (here is simply no reason they can not install doors with key card access for guests rather than a barn-style padlock to keep everyone out overnight).

Marina staff very helpful. Slip was available on time and as advertised. Power and water good. The shower facility is another matter. It was filthy and despite paying $3 for a shower the water was cold. No hot water at any sink faucets either. Although I am a fan of going green and having solar hot water, on rainy days you need to augment, especially if charging money over the price of a dock slip.

Overall a really fun time at OB Marina! We had a great slip (#20) for people-watching. It was convenient to everything: restaurants & bars, a little grocery store, and all the Circuit Ave. shopping. You have to back into the slip so be prepared for that kind of tie-up. A dockhand was waiting to help us get in. It’s a fun vibe, friendly neighbors. We did not have any issue with noise late at night.

Love going to the island but i really wish that the bathhouse had some sort of after hours key code access for boaters staying overnight. Additionally my slip for the weekend was missing a top step so it was extremely difficult for myself and my guests to get on/off my boat from the topmost step to concrete sidewalk surface. In my observations i had the only ladder with this issue which is discouraging and/or just bad luck.

Good Marina with helpful staff. Depending where you are docked it is quite a walk to the lone shower and bathroom. We were docked right next to a busy fishing boat (SKIPPER) which meant no late morning sleeping. These guys were very nice but started working at 6:30 - can't blame them of course. The lower the dock number, the closer to bathroom you are and away from working boats. Other than that it is an excellent location with access to all that Oak Bluffs has to offer. We stayed two nights and did not regret.

I love Oak Bluffs and the marina, support is 5. The boaters restrooms are terrible. Shower temperature totally not acceptable, from Luke warm to freezing. Water from all shower stalls drain into one central drain. This is disgusting! My wife went into the ladies area yesterday. Conditions were sickly, excrement from one toilet running all over the floor, She had to leave immediately before she threw up! This has been going on for years! I will try this marina one more time. If conditions are not corrected My boat and all my friends with boats will give It up and go elsewhere.

Government run marina. We have been using this marina over 40 years and not much has changed. The Town of Oak Bluffs is only interested in the revenue from the marina. The town closes the shower/head facilities after hours. Clean harbor? We did enjoy Oak Bluffs in spite of the marina facilities. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Wake up Oak Bluffs.

Horrible to be quite honest. People who were on their boats on either side of us were up partying all night long. Barely slept! They weren't even staying on their boats as they were open console, would've been nice if they could've gone to the bars or hotels where they were actually staying! We were surprised there was no harbor master or anyone at all around to quiet them down.

My wife and I love going to Oak Bluffs Marina and will continue to do so. However, the showers are in need of repair. In the men and women's room at least one shower is not working and the token machine is a pain. It only gives quarters in change but doesn't accept quarters for tokens and the shower coin timer didn't work once the token was put in. The marina wifi was non existent. Other than that. The marina is very clean. The staff is the best. They went out of there way to help every time they could. Its a great place to stay and I will again. As a side note, I'd be willing to pay an extra dollar at the showers if it went to fixing them up.

Marina services and location in the heart of Oak Bluffs are excellent. However, the otherwise fully enclosed harbor has a channel exposed to ENE winds which can cause breaking waves in the entrance which rock boats on both slips and moorings... and we got a strong Nor’Easter which did just that!

Friendly and accommodating staff. An employee was waiting for us at our slip and helped with check-in and power. Showers, bathroom and trash were somewhat conveniently located, however, the showers are maintained by the Harbormaster. As such, they are open to the public, never have hot water and the token machine is frequently broken. No cleats on slip #1, which floods at high tide and becomes slippery. Most dockage is simply a pole for tie off - very tight spaces. If you want to be close to the public and shops at Oak Bluff’s, and we did, the overall location is great.

I did not realize hourly docking was still available, since DOCKWA did not offer it. So, I spent $83+ dollars for 6 hours in a slip, instead of paying the hourly rate. I asked at Harbormaster's office if they would consider giving me a break and a future credit, not a refund, and they said no. My mistake for using Dockwa and not contacting the Harbormasters office directly. I was trying to "follow the new rules", and I was gouged for 6 hours of slip use. Not happy...

Nice protected harbor. Excellent location with lots to do right off the boat, and only a short walk to bus stops that can take you anywhere on the island. Night life near the marina is excellent. The marina and harbor Master was accommodating when we wanted to put in our boat on a mooring for a storm. Taking stars off though, for lack of a true dock system (Pilings and a rusty wall don't make the best home for a boat) and sub-par help when we first arrived.

This was our second visit to Oak Bluffs- The town is beautiful with great restaurants and shopping- a great town to walk. We reserved our Seawell slip thru Dockwa, incredibly easy! 5 stars for Dockwa! Couple of things to be aware of, the Seawell can be a very busy place- loud and not a lot of privacy. However, restaurants and bars only steps away. The (public) restrooms and showers were dirty- no hot water and shower stalls in terrible shape- Andy only open from 8 am to 6 pm. We stayed on slips because we have a dog- and being able to walk him anytime was a real plus. If you're of the party set- this is a great place- and I guess a lukewarm shower will wake you up after a rough night.

The dock hands were right there to help us in and connect up our power . It's a tight fit between the pilings at OB. Good kids. The fuel dock is small allowing only one , maybe 2 boats. This lengthens the fueling process. Staying in line is a problem and further complicated by ferry traffic in and out of the harbor. It can get scary , especially when you're waiting in line right where the ferry docks. The boaters showers , in a word ... disgusting. Overall , the experience of OB outweighs the shortfalls. Nothing like being "On the Wall " at OB.

The maina is centrally located in Oak Bluffs. A short walk will get you to the bus stop where you can take the bus to Vinyard Haven, Edgartown, or any place else on the island. If coming with dogs have good means by which to get them off the boat as you are stern into a fixed dock with about a 3' tide. We needed a 6' ramp. The bathrooms looked okayish but we hardly used them. Once off the boat Martha's Vineyard is a very nice eclectic place and will please most people in one way or another.

Great location. Good showering facilities with additional showering options at the inn across the street. Good dining at marina restaurant with many fun dining, shopping and music venue in the immediate walking area. Slips are back or front-in and you tie up at the wall placing you one step from the sidewalk prominade bustling with passers by. Water and electric provided in each slip. Best place to stay when visiting by boat on Martha's Vineyard.

We specifically requested months ago to be put next to our friends because we all have little kids we need to watch. When we pulled in there was multiple open slips around us so I asked the dock attendant if our friend boats would be next to us , he said "yes" then they docked our friends boats on the other side, I raised the issue with the dock representive but he could care less. Very poorly organized and terrible customer service, you get better service at McDonalds!

Marina itself is not bad but you are at a public bulkhead. If you don't have privacy issues you'll be fine but be prepared for lots of awkward stares. The flip side of this is that you are a stones throw from everything here. You don't see many staff but they are responsive when called on.

Fun environment with many bars/ restaurants on the waterfront. Reminiscent of Red Hook in the USVI. Dock staff lacking in any interest in helping clients in an unusual docking situation. Also bathroom/ shower access neeeds to improve.

The slip I was assigned was too narrow for my boat. The rub rails on both sides actually pried the pilings apart to get in. The public bathrooms were we were told to use were dirty and locked at 9:30 PM ! The town of Oak Bluffs is beautiful, lots off nice restaurants & shopping, unfortunately I will never stay there again because of the poor facilities.

As usual the location is amazing, but the WiFi never worked on multiple devices, the ladders used when coming off the boats are loose and broken and the bathrooms are just dirty public bathrooms. Also being woken up one night to kids on the back of my boat looking in my cooler for beer makes me wonder why there is no security....a basic business where there is no money being put back in to improve anything.

Booked many weeks in advance and requested to be next to a friend only to be denied multiple times, as they were sold out. There were many open slips over three days next to me. Found a local climbing down from above ladies room in the public marina bathroom, reported that to police!. Had my tender borrowed/stolen two years ago and got it back two weeks later. Beginning to wonder if this is a place I want to re-visit. Still managed to have a good time.

Stayed Thursday and Friday nights along the wall. Very noisy and the late night (bar crowd) is disrespectful to boat owners property. Bathroom facilities are town run and not kept up. Town facility shower $3 for 7 minutes and you might have hot water, Summercamp Hotel has showers available but $10 for 10 minutes...even though the town was nice, it wasn't my favorite place to visit.

Arrived on a very busy, crowded Sunday. Boats were rafted 4 deep in the mooring field. We took slip number 17 which is all the way around the cement bulkhead and wlakway from the ferry docks and waterfront bars/restaurants. Slip numbers 55-70 are closer to the busy waterfront. 1-25 are away from that and close to restrooms and a small market with the largest collection of wine that I have ever seen in a while. Very nice in a SW wind but close to foot and car traffic. Moorings are available (both day and overnight) in the middle of the very protected basin and their is a launch service on Ch. 77. The whole basin quieted down when all the Sunday day trippers left their moorings. Lots of restaurants, bars, kiddie activities, and people in the summer. A nice stop. One highight was watching the night time paddleboard lesson in the basin with underwater-lighted paddle boards that came out once the Pirate Ship tour quit for the day!

We were traveling with 2 other parties and they did not even try to accommodate getting us side by side, though there many open slips. The dockhand was useless and the gas dockhand was even worse. It's a great location but just don't expect any assistance.
