The people at Nantucket Moorings are always SO helpful! Beginning with Lee on the phone, who is so willing to accommodate us and work with us in the height of an incredibly busy season--to everyone who guides us out to our mooring, checks up on us, even asking if they can bring us some ice-- always stellar service!! They are the most active company we experience on our New England sails, but they have it down to a science--incredibly professional, organized, understanding, friendly and courteous. We look forward to staying with them every year. Thank You Nantucket Moorings!! See you next season!!

Late in the season, Nantucket Moorings isn't staffed on weekends, but the nightly rate is still high. The dinghy tie-up at the Harbormaster's town dock is still very crowded, and the restrooms are often locked. We had to call the town police to get the Harbormaster to come unlock the (old and poorly maintained) restrooms, or take the hike to the (new and well-maintained) public restrooms at Nantucket Boat Basin.

There is no nicer or more economical way to visit Nantucket than by mooring in the harbor. The mooring field is spacious and well organized. The view of the wharves and mega-yachts is magnificent, especially at night. My arrival was aided by very friendly and helpful Nantucket Moorings staff. My only criticism is that the shower facilities are deplorable. Besides being very worn they were the filthiest I’ve encountered in my years of cruising. The second evening that I showered there I made sure to bring my flip-flops. For $60 a night we cruisers deserve better facilities. I hope that there is renovation and a new cleaning staff before my next visit. Mitch Gilbert, s/v Pleiades

Shower, toilets etc was at a level that had us disgusted. When calling for action, Nantucket Moorings said it is not there responsibility and that "what should we expect in August." "We should be so lucky to be in Nantucket" - kind of like - " How dare you call to complain." Arrogance was at a level that we decided to leave early.

The staff of Nantucket Moorings were helpful and responsive. As we came into the harbor, they met us and directed us to our mooring, making sure we had no difficulties picking it up and then chatting with info about the launch and other services. The harbor was full but still they were able to accommodate us coming in a day early. The only downside was that the harbor had a fair amount of chop, which is more the fault of nature and geography than the staff, but still, we did find sleeping difficult with the banging and clattering of our, and neighboring boats rocking so much.

The island is beautiful. The moorings and facilities are excellent. The launch is $10 per person per ride, ridiculous. We used our dinghy to get to town. Would definitely return.

Sorry, I can’t recall his name, but the guy who showed us to our mooring was super nice and answered our questions. The condition of the mooring ball and painters were best we’ve ever seen. Our stay would have been better if we received a map of town, pamphlets, etc. when we picked up the mooring ball. The showers and bathrooms reminded me of ones at a well worn out public camp for kids... not what you’d expect when you pay so much for a mooring... $148 for one night? That was not the advertised Dockwa price, and we were not in the 2 night minimum time frame.

Leigh called to tell us where our mooring was because no one was available to show us to it. She went beyond good customer service even reassigning us a mooring closer to town. We'll rent for a week next year!

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!

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.

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....

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.
