For those who appreciate looking out at a harbor dominated by traditional sailing vessels, Vineyard Haven harbor is proud to be home to many classic vessels. On your way into town, you can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of an old fashioned wooden boatyard. Our fuel dock hours are 8-6 in July & August and 9-5 in May, June, September, October.

During Fireworks Weekend (August 18th-20th) a 2-night minimum fee is applied to all reservations.


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.

Great all girl crew at the marina, they couldn’t do enough, Noreen, Haily Sam and Maranda , the best trained and friendliest dock hands I’ve ever seen .

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.

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.

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure having you all here.
