Approach


The entrance to Vineyard Haven is a mile wide, with deep water right across. Prominent lights mark both of the flanking headlands - East and West Chop. Note that the current rounding West Chop is the strongest of any in Vineyard or Nantucket Sounds, topping 3 knots on a big tide. Once inside the breakwater, Tisbury Wharf Company's 3 piers may be found in the Southern corner of the harbor. The Tisbury Wharf's bright yellow Fuel Dock office is a landmark and points to the first of the 3 piers.
Minimum Approach Depth:16.0 Feet

The staff was very attentive. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The VTA will pick you up and drop you off right out front. 2’ tide easy to fend off stationary docks. Be prepared to fender horizontally. Thanks we will definitely be back.

Excellent stay! The team at TWC are A++. They met us at the dock, helped us tie up, and were friendly and supportive whenever we had a question or needed ice. The facilities are clean and neat, but basic. We were on West Dock. It's a pier with great power and water, but that's it. It's close to town, good restaurants within easy walking distance, and relatively quiet. We would definitely stay again.

Marina Response:

Great place to stay. Right on beach. Can walk to restaurants and town. They do not have floating docks wasn’t too bad getting on and off the boat. Would definitely stay there again.

Staff was very helpfully and friendly. The facilities were COVID locked so no shower or head as advertised. Location is brutal with any northerly blow. You will need fender boards and lot of lines! Located in a more commercial area, there are few people Around the marina. A short walk to the ferry landing and great eats.

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We hope to have all of our amenities available in future seasons. We appreciate you taking the time and hope to accommodate you in the future!

Dock was too high for our boat—there was no ladder. Treacherous getting on and off. Slipped an almost fell in water in am when boat was wet. After a lovely man helped us tie up—there was no one around again. Couldn’t get a wifi password, called numerous times and no answer, desperately wanted to move to other dock (despite the giant cruise ship)—everyone MIA. We have stayed here in past on different dock and all was fine. Would not go back again unless we could be on lower dock

Marina Response:
We hope to better accommodate you and others like you in the future. Thank you so much for your review. We will use this improve our customer service and facility.

Very nice marina. Very friendly and help staff. Clean private bathrooms. Walking distance to some very good restaurants. Just one suggestions on the docks.... could use rubber on the pilings especially on the windy days....

Very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly team of people. They can help as little or as much as you need. Very clean facilities. Other dock service people could take a lesson from these folks. We can all do without crusty and cranky dock masters.

This is a very lean and mean operation. The location is good and the price is an advantage over most others in the wharf but there are no frill! It comprises the dock, power and water which for us worked very well. I will add that the staff was very helpful and courteous as well.

I was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful a spot this was. This was my first time in Vineyard Haven and I like it more than Oak Bluffs - much quieter.

The staff were very nice and helpful, but we did not really enjoy our stay and won't be back. We were put in the 'beach facing' dock in front of the bigger ships facing the beach which put us 15 ft from the sand. As the weather changed - we got tossed around pretty good as the waves build up right under us before hitting the beach. Constantly had to keep re-adjusting fenders and still got a few dents on our 50ft. Also the 'beach dock' is a hike to the bathrooms - you have to walk on the main road without a sidewalk as it is not connected to the main marina facilities. And then - even as the description said there is pump-out services - when we asked - they said they don't offer it. The proximity of the shopping center across the street was nice.

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Most vessels that stay with us request that dock, because it is closer to town and away from the busy fuel dock. Most of our guests that are staying on vessels 45’+ usually do not make use of our restrooms, so I am sorry that we did not make that easier for you as we should have asked if you would make use of them. We endeavor to make your stay with us as comfortable and safe as possible. Most vessels chose to move to moorings that we had offered, an option offered to you as well. The entire harbor is vulnerable to high winds out of the Northeast, most vessels staying in the harbor that weekend at all the marinas moved to moorings. Our town provides a complimentary pump-out boat for any vessel that requests it. Our pump-out facility is used as a receptacle for those vessels. It is fully functional and is available to any of our marina guests, though it is purely self-serve. Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience.

Enjoyed our stay. Staff is great, lead by Noreen. She called before we got there confirming our eta, and was very helpful with places to go and how to get around. She went beyond regular service to make sure our stay was nice. Other dock staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Facilities were clean and nice. We preferred the location as it was not too busy and not in the heart of the “action”. The nights were quiet and view of harbor outstanding.

Everything was great except we were docked next to a huge “cruse ship” so felt more like marina for commercial ships than recreational boaters

First time visitor & we'll be back. Noreen was very helpful and patient answering our questions prior to booking, and Mariah and the dock staff were ready & waiting upon our arrival. They had us tied up, connected to power, water & WiFi within minutes. Bathrooms were a bit dated but clean & completely functional. Access to the dock from the harbor was easy for our 50' boat, but given we were on the fuel dock, I could see how it could get a bit congested at times. Access to island buses, restaurants, etc. was just a few minute walk.

Marina Response:
Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you with us.

We loved Tisbury Wharf Co. They were welcoming and fit us in when our original plans for a mooring elsewhere changed. We ended up being happy that our first plan did not work out because this was the perfect marina for us. All the services were fine, and the bathrooms and showers were clean and spacious. It was awesome to be able to walk across the street to catch the #13 bus to Oak Bluffs. They gave us excellent restaurant recommendations and answered any questions we had. We will be back soon! It's our new favorite marina on the Vineyard. 2018 Update: Another fabulous stay. Still a five-star spot. Great view and services with helpful knowledgeable staff.
