We cannot tell you enough how much we love this marina! The service is 5 stars plus!! Chris, John and Luke are the best, they go out of their way to make you happy and feel welcomed.
The location is unbeatable, the staff friendly — Waterboat is one of our favorite stops on the entire East Coast.
Not happy with the fact that the dock crew having become complacent. They have apparently given up on keeping seagulls and mussel shells (with flies), and bird droppings off of the docks. The mussels are growing rampantly on the underside of the docks, so the seagulls have an easy meal. I’d suggest cleaning the dock bottoms and taking care of the mess on the docks. A very nice expensive large sailboat pulled into one of the slips while we were there. I can’t help But think they must not have been impressed when they stepped off of their boat. Otherwise we find the location and amenities appropriate.
We love WaterBoat Marina. They staff is on top of everything. They are there waiting and welcoming you the second you call in. The marina facilities are very clean. The view of the Boston skyline is very pretty. The location is terrific for walking to the Italian North End and it's many fabulous restaurants, Faneuil Hall Market Place, Columbus Park so many destinations. It's one of our favorite marinas, we have always had a great visit and never any sort of issue.
The water boat marina facility and especially their staff makes this boating destination one of our favorite go to cruising destinations. Joel
Awesome stay. Folks are great. Very accommodating. They let us do a late checkout to allow some weather to go through. Much appreciated.
Great marina Very friendly staff, super clean showers, and very safe with downtown Boston a few hundred feet away. Best in Boston
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, very clean facility. Wish I could have stayed longer!
Helpful staff, clean facilities, complimentary amenities, great downtown location, docks in good shape. Easy in and out to harbor.
Wonderful accommodations and help by dock crew. Very professional and helpful in making our stay memorable and fun! Highly recommend!
Had a great stay at Waterboat Marina, staff was very accommodating. Marina is within walking distance to the North End, Faneuil Hall among other great places to visit. Be sure to bring your tender along to enjoy all of the harbor islands!
Great place to stay on a mooring in Boston Harbor. Staff was awesome. Facilities are meticulously maintained. Some of the nicest head facilities I have seen. Thank you for a great stay!
Location and facilities can’t be beat. It would be nice if water taxis (Tamara) and boaters would show a bit of courtesy and not cut through the mooring field You really should visit this place. So close to Aquarium you can hear the seals barking at night
This is a first class marina. I recommend it highly.
Very nice location, and cery friendly staff. Rather noicy place - having the subway in tunnel under water there, the nearby airport and a lot of ferries and a lot of private boats who run theue the morringfield, but its in the City! Morring was 75USD which is very expensive /overpriced- and a very slow wifi. So an medium rating...
We are from Cape Cod and make a once a year cruise to Boston. We love Waterboat Marina. Very friendly and accommodating staff and the facility is clean and well maintained. Location is fantastic. Nothing but good things to say about this marina and our stay.
Incredibly nice and helpful staff. Spectacular views of Boston from the mooring field. Even though the moorings are exposed to a significant amount of movement, the scenery is a must do! We used our dinghy a lot, as there is no launch, but it was easy. We recommend staying here!
Good location. Good facilities. Good staff. Would come here again. The only issue was seagull poop on the docks. They could wash it off regularly if they were sensitive to it.
Stayed on a mooring over night. Great location. We will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful stay here. The staff is helpful and the facility is excellent. It is also superbly convenient to everything you want to do in Boston. You are right in the middle of everything, walk to the North End (Little Italy), Chinatown, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, Long Wharf, the Aquarium --- it's all there. This convenience means that you are also right where all the ferry action is, so there's some rocking from their coming/going, but not during the night.
Great location, dock hands are the best. Bathrooms are A#1. Would highly recommend ,
great staff, best location in Boston! We love it!
Perfect location. Staff very helpful. Facilities are very nice and clean. Dinghy Dock with plenty of room.
The staff is amazing...everyone was friendly and so helpful. The marina is clean and well maintained, no complaints what so ever!!!
We had a great four days stay in Boston. The dock hands were very helpful and the coffee in the morning was very good. We will be back soon.
Waterboat Marina never dissapoints - always clean and hospitality top notch.
Good place, good security, not much room for dinghys if on a mooring.
Trouble free. Simple. Great location.
Great Facility Great layout with clean facilities. I will definitely be back, couldn’t of been in a more convenient location. We had a blast Linus, Scituate Ma
Great location. Great staff. Always pleased when we stay there
Everything was fabulous. Boston skyline at night can’t be touched
2nd year we've stayed there. Great location and facilities. Easy easy docking with helpful staff. We'll be back.
Really helpful staff, and right on the edge of town. Local wine and grocery delivery too - try Federal Wine & Spirits for the former, and Roche Bros for the latter. Lucca restaurant on Hannover St also worth a visit.
Love the location of this marina and the service is terrific. Just two minor complaints: dinghies that are not being actively used (ie have 6-8” of water in them) need to be moved further down the dock to make space for actively used dinghies. And having a dryer in each bathroom stall would be nice. The place is clean, well kept and right in the heart of Boston. It is a little bouncy during the day but quiets right down at night.
The marina was flawless, the staff was excellent and the location fantastic.
Had a fantastic stay at Waterboat Marina. Great team made check-in/out very easy. Location is fantastic, very protected marina and easy access to the city. Will definitely be back!
Excellent location for downtown Boston. Ferry wakes until about 10pm in the mooring field. Clean bathrooms with good showers.
Friendly staff and bathrooms/showers are always very clean.
It’s difficult for me to compare this marina with other Boston Harbor marinas as this is the first time I’ve stopped in Boston. Pros, Great location to dinning and attractions, spectacular views, great staff, showers, bathrooms and laundry if needed. Dock side picnic area and coffee machine. Good floating docks, water and electric all what you’d expect. Cons, Marina can get bounced a bit with harbor boat traffic and or wind even though it’s tucked in a bit. The historic building right next to the marina is under construction and work began on Monday morning at 6am. It was very noisy. I’m sure the marina staff is not happy nor to blame about this issue.
Great location. Great people. I can't say enough about Chris, Jon, Luke, and the entire crew. Been many times, always great!
Great place to stay in Boston and great staff. I highly recommend this marina.
Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent facilities, and a phenomenal location. It’s the full package and made for a great stay.. We will absolutely be coming back again!!
Great amenities and location and awesome helpful and friendly personnel. Love this marina!
The facilities were very nice! Wonderful location. Already planning our next trip:)
Great overnight stay. Friendly service & so close to North End restaurants. Note: Buiding next to marina undergoing external renovation, lots of noise during the day
We love Waterboat Marina! Whenever we go to Boston, this is the place we stay at. The location is perfect, right at the entrance to the North End. The facilities are clean and staff accommodating.
Great location. Called ahead to advise of late arrival. Person who answered phone was very helpful and advised where my pass key would be located should the office be located. This was my third stay at Waterboat, my first on a mooring, and it was a great night which we all enjoyed. Thank You to the staff.
Excellent facilities and location for Boston and Logan airport.
Great location and great service from the team.
Excellent! Great location, extremely attentive dock hands. Lots of tourist on-lookers.
We always enjoy Boston Harbor and Waterboat is the best way to enjoy it. Staff is first class and very nice to speak with as we plan our stay
Great place, right at the foot of Quincy Market. Clean and well protected marina. Good docks, good power. Helpful staff with night security.
Perfect downtown location. Pubs, restaurants, street performers, historical sites, the commons, etc. Everything within walking distance, except perhaps a grocery store. Uber/Lyft is readily available tho. It gets a little choppy during the day, not bad, but calm at night. Staff was very helpful.
The view and location are outstanding, facilities were clean and staff were very helpful.
The folks at Water boat are the best! Thank you Chris.
Fantastic location with easy access to the city. We had a nice view of the tall ships from here. Staff were very friendly and welcoming -facilities are very clean and the access gate is secure. No launch service for rental moorings is an inconvenience - we had a rowing dinghy and high winds made the trip to the dock difficult - we used the water taxi a few times $12 per person each way. The wifi in the mooring field is not working - the confirmation email includes the network and password but they are non-existent. I sent a note asking for the revised information and never received a reply - Since I work from the boat, I had to scramble a bit to make alternate arrangements which was not cool. Other than that, we had a great stay!
