Nice place. Staff very friendly and helpful. Community quiet just as we like it. Limited activities ashore and some of the local eateries were either closed for the season or negatively impacted by COVID.

Would have been 5 stars - great people, good moorings, etc. But, the dinghy space was very limited. We wound up tying to the end of the main float, since we knew we wouldn't be there more than an hour. On a busy day, there might not have been any room at all. The folks in the office helped as best they could, and allowed us to tie anywhere we find a spot.

Very rocky in afternoon due to wakes but settles down at night. The no wake zone is right outside the mooring field. So when boats slow down their wakes follow them in. Very uncomfortable.

The people are very nice. The bathrooms are under construction but it'll be nice when it's finished! Our primary concern was the lack of block ice. I hope they get a delivery soon!

Extraordinary service. This was the third season I stopped in. Last year I lost an alternator and they provided electrical connectors to install a new one. This year, Rockland was full and I wanted to meet friends and pickup BBQ. Tenants Harbor Boat Yard loaned me a car for several hours. Extremely nice folks. Bathrooms/shower has been redone. Easy walk to general store and several good restaurants. Good internet and cell service. Quiet well protected harbor that is easy to get in and out of.

Really need a. Area for transient boaters to tie up for short stays. They get all riled up if you tie the dingy in an open area for 10 minutes. Dock power is by extension cord. Moorings are well spaced and easily identified.

Perfect stay. Super fast response to our Dockwa request. The moorings are very close to the gas dock and boatyard, an easy paddle over. Amazing quiet at night compared to some mooring fields, and beautiful stars. Will be back!

We were travelling with two other boats, who were assigned mooring close together near the head of the harbor. We, however, were assigned a mooring out near the harbor entrance where we were subjected to wakes and rolling in the ocean swell. Also there was a lobster facility on shore near us with floodlights shining on us all night. We were happy to be able to fill our water tank at the dock, and the staff was very courteous and helpful there.

What a great spot! Have been meaning to stay here for a few seasons now and finally booked a mooring for this past weekend. Easy booking on Dockwa app. We were extremely pleased with the location & responsiveness of the boatyard when we initially had trouble locating the assigned mooring in the harbor. We were tucked away in a lovely part of the harbor alongside some old summer cottages. Well-protected (winds were SSW), scenic and lots of services within easy row & walk. The harbor was active but not too crowded/noisy — though we stayed on a Saturday night and so with no lobstering on Sundays we had the advantage of not having any rumbling Diesel engines at 5am! A great launching point for any cruise to Monhegan, Fox Islands, and/or Penobscot Bay. Will definitely stay again!

We’ve been stopping here for years on our annual cruise down east from Portland. They’ve always been helpful, friendly and accommodating. There are showers on the property. The anchorage has a combination of working lobster boats and pleasure boats, so there’s always activity, which we enjoy. An easy walk away are a couple of restaurants, a bakery, a general store and a post office.

Quaint location. East exposure so not the best choice for string east winds - but the mooring was great and we weathered the winds. Dinghy dock is close which is great - but very crowded dinghy dock so a bit challenging for the tie up. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Updated 8/17/2021 Most of my comments from my previous stay still apply. Tenants Harbor is a nice little town and we enjoyed walking around for the afternoon. This was another short, one-night stop. At least 3 dock attendants helped us tie up. They were skilled and attentive. The only drawback I found with this stay is that the boatyard has some shore power limitations. It has one 50-amp connection and one 30-amp connection. We were the second boat to request 50-amp service for the same night. Thus I was forced to “time-share” the single 30-amp connection between my inverter/charger circuits and my heavier AC loads. It worked out OK but would have been more convenient if I hadn’t had to switch my loads to share a single source between my two 30-amp cords. To be fair, the dockmaster called me before confirming my reservation to let me know this would be the situation, but I encourage the yard to upgrade their shore power facilities. Original 2019 Review: This was a short, one night stop, but we were very comfortable. The dockmaster was on the pier when we arrived to help tie us up. He had given us good directions to his pier and our assigned location. Shore power is provided via extension cords from a box on the fuel dock. Both 30 and 50 amp shore power is available. There’s a single head with a shower in the customer lounge up the hill from the docks. The head and shower were clean and in good condition. WiFi at the dock was outstanding, among the best we’d seen during our trip up the coast. We didn’t sample food ashore but there appear to be several restaurants serving dinner and a couple just serving breakfast and lunch. There’s also a small general store that we didn’t have time to visit.

Our stay was fabulous and checked all the boxes for us! Moorings only in a quintessential Maine lobstering harbor. The Tenants Harbor Boatyard was easy to work with and responsive. They have a big dinghy dock, too. I just loved seeing all the lobster boats moored all over the place. This is a real working waterfront with a small town charm. Definitely worth splashing the dinghy and exploring. Tie up at the Town Dock and head up the street to the Happy Clam and right behind it - The Outback. A really cool time!

Beautiful location with basic amenities. We were there for a very short stay, so I did not check out the lounge with showers, etc. Docks are narrow and made for working boats, but all were in good shape and well maintained. The young ladies at the dock were helpful and friendly. We needed to borrow an extension for electric service (ours is about 50'), but it all worked out. If you don't have a long cord, you may want to check on this in advance. We walked about 8 minutes to Happy Clam and ended up at their Saloon called Outback Really nice people and the most delicious fried clams ever! It was quiet and beautiful at night. We will be back for a little more time so we can explore.

Privately marked channel into the harbor and actually, no lobster pots in that channel. We were moored adjacent to the channel with continuous traffic lacking understanding of the "No Wake" buoy. Got the impression the lobstermen don't appreciate the presence of private vessels. We were circled a couple of times. Only contact with marina staff was via radio. Gave good directions to our mooring, although the mooring numbers are very hard to read. Did not go ashore, so can't comment on facilities.

We stayed 2 nights at Tenats Harbor Boat Yard on a mooring ball while we daysailed the area. This is a wonderful place to stay. We got in late and they made sure we knew where to moor..Great directions. The facilities were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Tenants Harbor is a nice sheltered anchorage with a fun mix of sail and worming boats. The village is friendly and a short walk away. We will stay here again.

This might be the most protected and tranquil harbor I’ve ever seen! I know it would be different if the winds were from the Northeast, blowing directly into the harbor. But for the storm we were ducking, this was a sanctuary. Colin couldn’t have been more helpful, including arranging a diver to scrape our hull. And the town of Tenants Harbor is absolutely charming.
