The Wareham Harbormaster/Shellfish Department is responsible for over 54 miles of ocean coastline, 20 ponds (approx. 1,260 acres) and some 30 miles of interconnected streams. During the summer season the Town of Wareham will have as many as 3000 vessels using the waterways at any given time.
1. Reasonable mooring rate. 2. Free launch service 3. Friendly launch crew 4. Showers would be an appreciated amenity. 5. Onset Village is low key and not self-important.
I had my boat on a mooring for two nights in Onset. They provided free launch service and were very friendly and helpful. We had a great weekend there, thank you.
The moorings are great and the harbor nicely protected. My only comment is that it is a bit confusing for a newcomer to the harbor figuring out where the moorings are. The moorings are obscured by Wickets Island when coming in the harbor and one sees many moorings at the private marinas to the east. It would be helpful if the info on the confirmation included an instruction to proceed past Wickets Island keeping it to starboard and enter the town mooring field on the northwest side of the island.
