Location is beyond great, staff were super friendly and helpful. There is a pumpout boat and free pumpout and water at the end of the town dock. Supermarket is a 5 minute walk away from the dinghy dock. The only negatives: the dinghy dock was overcrowded (but there is launch service as an alternative) and the restroom facilities at the Harbormaster's office are very overdue for a good cleaning and repair. Despite this we will be back!

Love staying in Nantucket. Nantucket Moorings and Harbor Launch are always willing to help out and are a great crew to deal with.

Good stay and prompt attention - launch service provided by someone else at $5 per head each way which ain’t cheap

Very quiet mooring field, but of you want hustle and bustle, short dinghy ride or launch into town can get you to hustle and bustle.

Always first rate. Well kept moorings, helpful staff and a pump out boat. Only slight negatives are exposure to northeast, which is generally where tougher storms blow from, and the launch is a bit pricey at $5 pp each way. The dinghy dock is getting more and more crowded every year. Needs to be expanded, but it probably belongs to the town, not the mooring owners.

Fantastic! Service was great. My mooring was ready for me and I loved the fact that I was shown to my spot rather than milling around the mooring field looking for it! Great job!

Professional crew in the office and on the water with excellently maintained moorings at a very reasonable price in Nantucket. Love this harbor - Nantucket Moorings is my #1

Mooring was great, staff was friendly and helpful locating the mooring. But the showers & bathrooms were poor and dirty.

Very accommodating. Was met at entrance to the harbor and escorted to mooring with easy to grab pick-up buoy. Was then greeted alongside the boat with detailed harbor information.

It's great having the grocery store a short bike ride or walk from the dinghy dock!

Great stay as always. They had the perfect mooring and a Line extension installed to accommodate the high bow of our Nordhavn "NaviGator." Staff was accommodating, attentive, and friendly as always. We will be back.

Mooring staff are all spectacular in their skills and professionalism. The town is a delight and the scenery wonderful. Bring wads of cash and enjoy.

1. It was quick, easy and efficient to sign up through Dockwa. BUT, it is very hard to submit this review ! 2. we were given a mooring with a PERFECT location. 3. The harbormaster instantly approved us having 30 minutes of extra time

Our stay in Nantucket was delightful on the whole. Our mooring location, E5, however, wasn't ideal. The tide/wind conflict meant that about half the time we and the boats around us were bumping up against our mooring balls. There was an old wooden Hinckley next to us whose mooring ball would squeak loader than an Osprey in these circumstances. This part of the mooring field also seemed to be heavily trafficked by small motor boats and RIB's traveling over 5 knots and making wake. I'd hope for a mooring further up next time? The new guys running the launch (Waypoint Marine) seem happier than the old guys....

The Nantucket Moorings is a great place to stay. They are very helpful. They cruise the mooring field and make sure you have everything you need. We are already planning to go back.

Stern to bow swinging room... only inches to spare. Does not make for calm approach on arrival. And when the wind's up, not so restful nights...

Absolutely brutal cancellation policy. Months in advance we found out our boat wasn't going in had to forfeit entire 3 night fee (which was over 200$)

Promptly directed to our mooring. Launch service ashore is good. The cost might catch some off guard although the price is not unfair at $5 per person per trip. Supplementary information about launch service and dinghy docks is necessary.
