Oddly over priced. One of the most expensive moorings in Maine + $5 per person to shower + $5 per bag of trash + $2 to fill your water tank. Did not encounter these extra costs anywhere else in a month of cruising Maine. Some of the moorings seem too tightly spaced. Not going back.

Always a very nice salty stop. Nice store and the Dip Net restaurant is good. Ice cream just around the corner

Some confusion on what mooring We were assigned. Another boat was on the mooring were assigned in the reservation confirmation. We took another mooring and all was fine.

A favorite place now. Chris was very accommodating, including letting us move to a different mooring when a large commercial vessel on another mooring threatened to hit us when swinging.

Wyeth Gallery, Marshall Light House Museum, and Black Harpoon make this a place to stop for.

Booked a mooring months in advance. Arrived could not reach anyone on Channel 9. Called the store, they had no clue what was going on, told us to pick up one of two moorings. Both were occupied, grabbed a small mooring (that could not hold us) my husband ran around for an hour trying to fix “their” problem. Thank god we were part of a group & one of our members who was lighter offered to change moorings. Just a mention we did encounter a small sailboat who did not want to move because it was too rocky, nice👎 This was horrible not sure we will return. Plus for all the upset & running around we did, they still wanted to charge us for trash😳

Nice town. Good moorings. There seemed to be a few people who felt their moorings were not suitable, but the angst seemed unnecessary. They do seem to charge extra for everything which seems a little unfriendly. They seem to charge $5.00 extra for Dockwa at least based on the rate on the sigh on the dock.

Everything was easy, the mooring was in good condition, and the harbor was quiet, until the fishing boats headed out. We did not go ashore.

Port Clyde country store was a fine mooring field. All moorings allowed for sufficient space. The clerks were efficient and courteous when called to get assignment.

Wildly overpriced for what you get. When we arrived, hailed to ask how to find our assigned mooring; no response. Called by phone instead; person answering phone didn't know, and there was no one else available. Included launch was not running (it's available 7 days a week, unless it's the dock person's day off, or he's not in). Free restroom in the store was disgustingly dirty; another restroom and shower in the adjacent building cost $5 per use. $2 charge to fill with water at the fuel dock. $5 per bag to drop off garbage. Assuming 2 people on the boat want to shower once a day and use no other services, that's $50/day total. Compare the closest Dockwa-listed marina, Tenants Harbor Boat Yard: $87.50 per day (for our 35-ft boat) includes showers, clean restrooms, trash disposal, water tank fill. And that's for a dock, with helpful staff. Or $30 for a mooring, which includes launch, restrooms, showers, garbage, water. A pity. We've wanted to stay in Port Clyde for a while, and it is a beautiful spot where we had a restful night. But we won't be back.

It's a beautiful spot with complimentary moorings from the yacht club. I haven't yet sent them a donation but I will. Why 3 stars? There is NO fresh water. Spigots and hoses offer sea water. Sanitation? Porta potties beyond the pier. This is not a complaint. We knew this going in. Just wanted to make it clear for new omers.

OK, but the advertised launch service wasn’t available on the day we arrived, though it was on the following day.

Nice spot, nice restaurant, only problem was curtailed hours of store hours and no marina staff, I am sure due to current labor conditions.

$40 is at the high end of ME moorings, but then they charge $5 additional to bring off a bag of trash and $2 to fill water. Described launch hasn’t run any of the last few times we’ve moored here. Sometimes irregular store hours make restroom/shower access inconvenient.

No one responded to the VHF on our arrival at 3:00 PM. No one answered the phone. No way for incoming boats to get mooring assignments. Restaurant was very understaffed with a very limited menu. Beautiful location but we did not receive the usual quality service.

The mooring was great but we called and asked about getting fuel and they told us to come into the fuel dock, but when we did, we were then told that the fuel pump was not working.

Mooring was available and town was adorable, as was the lighthouse & museum. Harbor was mostly commercial fishermen. Lobster boats throw substantial wake with little regard for pleasure boaters starting at 4am, which seems to be the norm in Maine.

I was directed to numbered mooring buoy, but the number was not visible - need to repaint buoy numbers Almost no cell phone signal for me in this harbor
