TRANSIENT MOORINGS

The Edgartown Harbormaster Department oversees all permanent, seasonal, and transient moorings in Edgartown waters, which are designated for transient use for vessels up to 65-feet in length. Transient moorings cost $45 for any length of stay within a 24-hour period that cycles from 10AM-10AM and are distributed on an assigned-basis as they all accommodate different vessel lengths. There are no more first-come, first-serve pick-up moorings and day-trips pay the same $45 rate as overnight vessels. All vessels arriving without a reservation are to hail us on VHF Ch. 74 for availability.

We strongly encourage all visiting yachtsmen / yachtswomen to reserve in advance as Edgartown is one of the busiest and most popular ports in the United States and frequently sells-out. To reserve, visit our website, www.edgartownharbor.com. For weekends and holidays especially, be sure to book when our calendar opens on March 4st at 08:00 AM EST sharp. There is a TWO WEEK LIMIT ON MOORING RESERVATIONS FOR JULY & AUGUST. Edgartown does not force rafting, but will allow one additional vessel of equal or lesser length/beam to raft if given expressed permission by the moored vessel for an additional $20 the card on file will be charged.

All town moorings in Edgartown waters are “fair weather" moorings and are therefore not sufficient for safe holding during severe weather. The Town of Edgartown is not responsible for the mooring tackle or any damage to your vessel caused by weather-related events.

TRANSIENT DOCKAGE

Our department operates two fixed docks available for vessels up to 70 and 100-feet in length at a rate of $6 per foot, 50-foot minimum (vessels under 50-feet are charged $300 flat-rate per night) with a one-week limit per calendar month for July & August. They are located at North Wharf opposite the fuel dock and include water and electric. DOCKAGE DOES NOT COME WITH PARKING

FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE DOCKAGE

In addition to our two transient docks at North Wharf, there are four first-come, first-serve finger-piers for vessels under 30-feet in length and 4-feet in draft. These cannot be reserved in advance and are available for an hourly rate. They are located at the foot of Main Street in between the Mad Max Marina and the Edgartown Yacht Club and are denoted by the right-green paint on the pilings.

DINGHY DOCK

Located at the foot of Main Street on the west side of the Edgartown Yacht Club (A-Frame building extending over the water) is a floating dock rafted alongside a row of red-painted pilings. Be certain to bring a dock line no less than 15-feet as the dinghy dock is often several boats deep, and to leave at least 8-feet off your bow. If you plan to be absent for more than a day, please utilize the launch service to help curb overcrowding as a courtesy to those actively commuting throughout the day. We also appreciate when our guests report any non-tender vessels occupying the space and will respond, remove, and relocate at our earliest ability to do so. PLEASE DO NOT KEEP YOUR DINGHY TIED FOR LONG TERM TIME, WE WILL BE TICKETING DURING THE SEASON. In addition to the primary dinghy dock, we have short-term tie-up available at North Wharf for guests using our complimentary showers, heads, and trash drop-off facilities.

LAUNCH

The Town of Edgartown contracts launch service with a private company. For the last decade, that launch has been OldPort Launch, which can be reached on VHF Ch. 68. Please contact the launch directly for hours as they change seasonally.

WATER BARGE

Located diagonally across the channel from Green Channel Marker #9 is our floating water barge secured by two ball-shaped blue moorings on either side. It is free to use, accessible 24-7 on a first-come, first-serve basis, and equipped with two hoses. Vessel can tie up on either side of it.

PUMP-OUT

Edgartown Harbor offers free pump-out service to all vessels in Edgartown waters via a pump-out boat that will pull alongside. To request a pump-out, hail “Edgartown Pump-out” directly on VHF Ch. 74. You have to be on board at the time of a pump-out.

ICE

Block and crushed ice can be purchased at North Wharf Supply ship store located on 1 Mores St, right near our office/heads/showers, the Paper Store, and various package stores in town.

ANCHORAGE

The anchorage area is located in the outer harbor across the channel from the lighthouse and to the port-side of Red Nun #8 along the Chappaquiddick shoreline. It is serviced by the launch, well protected by Chappy's bluff from the light, prevailing southwest breeze, and all sand on the bottom making for easy holding. Vessels anchoring must be out of the channel and swim zones and all engines must be shut off 150-feet and less from shore. Anchorage in Katama Bay is only open at the harbormaster’s discretion when strong winds from the North/Northeast are present. Please hail us on VHF Ch. 74 to inquire about status.

GROCERY & PHARMACY

While there are smaller provisions shops in Edgartown, the primary grocery store for the town, and much of the island, is Stop & Shop, located on Upper Main Street. It is about 0. 8 miles (15-20 minute walk) from the dinghy dock but can also be accessed via the free Park & Ride Shuttle operated by the Vineyard Transit Authority. The shuttle leaves from Mayhew Lane every 15-20 minutes during high season. Further up the street from Stop & Shop is their pharmacy, also accessible by foot or the Park & Ride. The island's primary hospital is located in the Town of Oak Bluffs and accessible via bus or car. Safe Harbor Ship store is located right next to our office / near the heads and showers on 1 Mores St. Here you can find ice, provisions and snacks. They are open in the summer contact Safe Harbor for hours.

ATTENTION

This is strongly discouraged and not recommended. Any yachtsmen leaving the island and their vessel unattended for any reason must advise the Harbormaster Department and provide emergency contact details and an island contact when absent for several or more days.

Edgartown is a beautiful harbor and we look forward to sharing its beauty and character with you.

We’ve been coming here by boat for well over 20 years, and we never tire of it. I’m s still our #1 place to visit! This time of year is so very different, yet still so very special. Perfect weather and perfect mooring location (#1, a first for us)! Sad to see the season ending, but enjoying what’s left in our favorite place!

Awesome location near the town center. There are only a small number of slips (non-floating) which are all near the marina boat lift. Should keep this in mind if visiting during spring launch or fall haul out season.

Great location in a beautiful port. Nice slip, close to downtown. It was relaxing at times. Only problem is 3 to 5 guys constantly fishing around your boat. My wife is an animal lover and was upset that they were killing sunfish as bait and then killing the fish they pulled out. They were constantly shouting foul language. F*** this and F*** that. When we approached them, they said they had right to fish there as taxpayer.

Updating my review from a couple of years ago, but it is the same. Edgartown's Harbormaster team is top notch. Very welcoming and professional. The email that comes with the confirmation is helpful and warm. Thank you all. Only issue, nothing to do with Harbormaster , the store at fuel dock- closed despite their phone message and signage. Needed block ice. Apparently the store is unreliable. Just a warning for those like us who have only the most minimal refrigeration. Edgartown Harbor: Thank you again.

Best mooring experience in the area! The dinghy dock leaves a lot to be desired. Lots more mooring and anchoring capacity in the harbor than the dock can support. With the shift to more console style ribs the small dock doesn’t cut it. Plan to tie up 2-3 boats deep and do some boat hopping. Or plan to have to clean your tender after people have used yours like a jungle gym if you are lucky enough to get anywhere near the dock.

Great people, very helpful Harbormaster and crew, launch was inconsistent at times on the end times, but overall very beautiful spot with great restaurants and bars. The water barge is such a brilliant idea. The only thing that was a bit frustrating was trying to find the mooring with very little help, the help we received from the HB office was actually less than helpful and not accurate. We were right off can 9, how hard is that.

Second consecutive stay over the Labor Day weekend this year and remain impressed with how mooring assignments are made and handled. The staff is friendly and very customer service oriented. The moorings are clean and tidy with each yellow mooring line neatly coiled on top of the mooring for an easy pickup. Wish there were more dingy spaces for longer ashore time but we survived. We look forward to returning in 2024! S/V Mariposa, Marion MA, Beverly Yacht Club.

What a colorful, idyllic harbor living up to its 5-star reputation. We really enjoyed the bustling Labor Day weekend scene. The Edgartown Harbormaster was exceptionally responsive in answering our Dockwa mooring requests and radio communications. Yellow town mooring #3 (near green can #9) is convenient to town and gives one a front row seat to all the action.

As always, the support from the Harbormaster and the pump out boat was amazing. Our concern this visit was the lack of launch support. One launch servicing both the inner and outer harbor was not good planning, especially on a beautiful Labor Day. We waited a combined 3 hours just to get a round trip and paid another price increase to do so. It is also amazing that the EYC launch was operating with 3 people in it and on our last run we had 36.

The morning I planned to visit Edgartown, I realized that I had forgotten to make a reservation. Panicked, I called at 7:00 and spoke to the harbormaster. He advised that the person processing Dockwa queried came in at 8:00. I called at 8:00 on the dot, spoke again with the Harbormaster who, in turn, consulted his colleague. They processed my mooring reservation immediately, while I was on the phone. Everything from there led to a wonderful stay. Great service, gracefully given.

Edgartown is our favorite harbor for our summer cruise. Friendly, easy pump-put access and the water dock!

Our stay was excellent. Good moorings which held during an unexpected heavy storm. I deducted one star because the dinghy dock is too crowded. For a size of a harbor like Edgartown, there should be more dockage for dinghys. We ended up using the launch one day. FYI..$5 each person one way. The harbor master should regulate the size of the dinghy’s tied there. While we were there, someone came in the the dinghy dock with a 15 foot inflatable and a 90 HP engine and pushed in. We watched as the woman on board didn’t step in the other dinghys to tie up and repeatedly stepped on the transoms of the dinghys.🙄 Other than that, enjoyed our stay, calm peaceful harbor!

We have stayed at Edgartown several times and love it. It is a beautiful place. We were looking forward to this visit, however prior to arriving at our mooring, we came to the realization That our dog was lame and needed to go home to Connecticut. We were on the morning for two maybe three hours at most, and left that day for Cuttyhunk, and back to Connecticut to care for our dog. I’m asking Harbor Master for a credit for a future stay we were advised of the ““ policy for no refunds. Without consideration of our situation, Harbor Master told us we couldn’t even have a single day credit for the today morning that we paid for. This is disheartening and evidence of big corporate policy in America today. A complete lack of consideration, I’m obviously very displeased with Edgartown Harbor Master

Edgartown is amazing and the harbor is a fantastic place. It’s hard to beat the value. While I understand that new shower facilities are on the horizon, the existing ones could have been cleaner and signage at the dinghy dock reminding people to use the recommended 15 feet of painter could be helpful to accommodate the number of dinghies.

A couple of issues that need resolution. 1. Pump out boat is over scheduled. Need an extra boat. We requested a pump out just after arriving and we were put on the list. We were asked to stay on the vessel until the pump out was complete. There was no update on whether we would be waiting 30 min, 1 hour, or 3 hours. When I called for an update, there was still no idea of a time frame. The pumpout boat would also not respond to individual boat hails. I went ahead and took guests back and forth to shore. When I saw the pump out boat about 2pm come near our boat I was able to whistle him over and he let me know he was working on yesterday's list. I did have a conversation with the office late in the day and they still could not tell me where on the list we were located, but they did advise we would be handled the next morning. I went to the Harbormasters office and found out we were third on the list for the day. However, the boat did not start until late am (after 10 am check out time). I took guests ashore for morning breakfast and coffee and went back to wait. Near noon, I was pumped out. I spend about 2 months a year traveling the area by boat, as a captain and as a n advanced Sailing instructor. Having to wait so long for proper time line communication is disrespectful. Also, the dinghy dock situation is terrible. Having to crawl over 3 rows of dinghys to tie off and get to shore is begging for problem. It would be easy for someone who cannot swim to fall in between dinghys, hurt themselves, panic, and not able to get to the surface. The town is wonderful.

Edgartown Harbor has always been one of my favorites - still is but sadly the dinghy dock is beyond over crowded given there are so many boats in the mooring field and it’s not ever supervised so they are many oversized, long term boats that take up much of the space.

Lots of moorings, great clean pick up line; we were well protected deep in the harbor. Dinghy dock super crowded on late June weekend & despite recommendations to leave a long line, most did not. Harbor department showers & bathrooms a bit far from the mooring. Also, called for a Pumpout on Saturday and told we were on the list for Sunday morning btw 8 & 9 (he wasn’t on the water Saturday) but still no show by our 10 am departure. Alas, had to pay to pump out in the next port. Town is quaint with lots of restaurants, galleries and high end shops. The MV transit is a bargain with $8 all day pass and can get to the other towns and sites easily.

Marina Response:
We will be receiving monies on July 1 for renovations on the showers. As the summer season has begun we can not do the restoration now. The way the Town works is we have to go to Town meeting for the funds and then once approved we can proceed when the funds are available after July 1. We do our best with what we have and try to accommodate to the best of our ability. Please excuse us for one more year as this is going to be a work in progress. We have a brand new staff this year with many still training. Please give them time to learn the ropes as most of our staff are brand new.

The moorings are fine, the staff polite and helpful. The only problem is one you see at a lot of harbors - the dinghy dock is clogged with people using it as a free dock for their 22' center console that they brought over from Hyannis or Falmouth. No room. Still one of the better managed harbors. As well, towns should have a separate arrangements for transients vs the seasonal renters who legitimately need to get out to their boat on a mooring but leave unused boats at the dock all the time. Chained and unmovable. Finally, while there are signs everywhere about "dumpsters for boater trash", none seemed to exist. Taking your trash ashore was an exercise in creativity.

Moorings are best away from the tidal current. Otherwise you may not be facing the wind. That creates issues, such as when grilling. Launch and bus schedules were erratic, but this is probably the post COVID, post Labor Day norm. Still a great place to visit.

What a great little harbor! We arrived quite late the night before and anchored out. Edgarton Harbormaster checked in with us multiple times to track our progress until we informed them that we were anchoring out. The next morning they sent a launch out to escort us into our mooring ball. That evening the shuttle ferry shut down unexpectedly at 7PM instead of the specified 10PM. Edgarton Harbormaster made sure we got back to our boat.

Edgartown Harbormaster and competent staff set the stage for a great stay in Edgartown: professional, responsive, knowledgeable, year after year. Dockwa has streamlined the reservation system, tho this year I had to string together 3 separate reservations to make one continuous stay (even tho we reserved back in March 2022 when mooring rez opened). Based on what other boaters have said when hailing the EHM upon arrival, this has been the case for others as well. That said, EHM staff work hard to accommodate reservations, extensions, and requests. We cruise New England waters from Maine to Connecticut and Edgartown is one of the very best destinations, in large part due to the Edgartown Harbormaster and staff. 💯

It is always the most pleasant experience staying in Edgartown on either a mooring or on the harbormaster's docks. Edgartown Harbormaster is a first-class production. From everyone who works in the office, to out in the field, the service is always stupendous! The communcation is the best. If I need to leave a message requesting dockage or a mooring, my call is answered within minutes. The friendly, proficient staff is immediatly on hand to escort us to a mooring or greet us at the dock. We cannot be happier with Edgartown Harbormaster--year after year. Our most gracious sailing transient encounter!! Thank You, Edgardtown Harbormaster!! And adding to this this year—we loved being on mooring #91 we weren’t sure at first. We thought we were so isolated—very far in Katama Bay. But because of a great launch service, we got into the village in no time. And the mooring field where we were was beautiful—bordering an Osprey nest on Chappy and being enveloped by the serene surroundings. Taylor on the launch was THE BEST! Gracefully pulling up to our transom and helping us with our bicycles. Mike and and Steve were really great, too. Thank you!!

We were not able to find information about launch service to and from our moored yacht. We waited at yellow marked area near dinghy dock, no launch, no signage. So, we had to use our overloaded dinghy to go a long distance at night. Not safe. All other harbors made this info easily available.

There's no better destination in August. Hoped to extend my reservation a day but the system for doing so appears to favor day trippers (I was told to call in the morning of the final day rather than getting any yes/no days in advance when I asked).

We arrived at Edgartown Harbor on a very busy Sunday morning in August without a mooring reservation. The woman working the VHF at the Harbormaster’s office was handling about 5-6 requests at the same time. She was very professional and courteous. Thanks to our Dockwa membership, we were assigned a mooring and the launch picked us up in short order. I wish I could give 10 stars to the patient, efficient and polite woman who handled all the logistics of a busy Sunday in such a professional manner.

As usual, Edgartown Harbor is gorgeous, clean and just a great place to vacation! The Harbormaster and his Assistants are fantastic! Charlie, the Harbormaster, gave us great advice to cut through Quicks Hole, instead of Woods Hole, due to the high seas in Buzzards Bay and wicked winds. We only saw the Ferry, as other boats must have hunkered down. We’ll be back!

Well-run operation. Moorings are a very good value for the money. Free pumpout boat (call early in the morning to get on the list). Reservations via Dockwa strongly recommended; depending on your size you may get a mooring without a reservation but they'll want you to have a Dockwa account to bill. They could use a dinghy dock 2-3 times as large as the current one.

We have been going to Edgartown since I was a kid, some 60 + years. The Harbormasters have always been very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The only reason I give 4 starts instead of 5 is the showers. A small bench and a small shelf would be a major improvement, making it much easier to do what is required to have a nice shower and to be able to change into new, clean clothes. Otherwise, no complaints whatsoever, 5 stars!

Very quiet and calm location even with 10-15 mph North winds. Dinghy dock seems to be improving with either less dinghy’s tied up or with boaters using the recommended 15ft lead to allow boats to be moved around so you can get your dinghy to the dock to load/unload. This was an issue in the past.

The kids that work for the harbor master are inexperienced and arrogant. Check out time for the moorings is 10:00 am, a bit too early in my experience. Check in is 11:00, so it would be easy to allow a departing guest to stay a little late. When we inquired if we could stay an extra 1/2 hour, I was told “unless you’re too cheap to pay for another day, we could not stay a minute past 10:00. With slip accommodations as limited as they are in Edgartown, the moorings are one of the few option in the harbor. Too bad that they take advantage of that with such sub-standard service. Our next destination was Nantucket Boat Basin. The Edgartown Harbormaster and his staff should tour Nantucket Boat Basin to learn about proper customer service.

The Edgartown Harbormaster’s crew is top notch and thoroughly boater friendly. They offer free showers, a super convenient water barge and a wonderful pump out service provided by Assistant Harbormaster Mike, a friendly and welcoming presence for many years. All together, it makes Edgartown one of our favorite destinations. We’ll be back there aboard Grace every chance we get. That said, I would add that the elimination of first come first served moorings is a deep disappointment. It discourages many of us from sailing here as reservations fill up. That combined with the prohibition against anchoring in Katama Bay makes it a port for the ultra wealthy, freezing out many of us average boaters.

The cost of the slip was $300 per night. We have an outer eastward facing outside slip and the wind was blowing 15-20 knots without an offer for a change of slip. What was most annoying was that the entire time we were there, there were a bunch of people fishing right at our boat. This should NOT be allowed at a rented slip or we should receive a rebate. We heard their conversations all weekend and had to literally step over their rods and equipment. I would not recommend Edgartown Harbormaster at all.

Very nice and helpful. Had a reservation for Sunday thru Tuesday. We came on Saturday, a day early, with no reservation. They accommodated us nicely. They had us on a mooring that was occupied. Put us on another private mooring. Called us two days later to see if we were still in harbor. Wondering why We were not on previous occupied mooring. Told them what happened, and they said we shouldn’t be on 40’ mooring as we are 60’ boat. Oh well. They were very nice though. Look forward to next stay.

I love Edgartown Harbor. The mooring field is well protected and the harbor master is very helpful and professional. The dinghy dock is starting to get ridiculous. It's always had the deserved rep of being three deep at times. It's now all the time. Boaters come and spend a ton of money in town, which must generate local revenue. They really need a larger or additional dinghy dock, even if it's a bit further from town. Update Sep ‘21. Even off season the dinghy dock is still 2-3 boats deep. This would be a 5 star location, if not for this issue. Several were grousing about it. Some tied up closest had days of rain water in them. Sends a ‘we don’t really want you here message’. Otherwise, staff and the rest are excellent.
