Easy access, great amenities, friendly crew.
Easy mooring to pick up, great staff
Spent the winter there. Great spot and a well run marina. Always enjoy staying there. Chris and Jon are top notch. Will be back this summer.
This is clearly the best marina to stay when visiting Boston Harbor. Location, service, value, amenities, and more. Dock or mooring I suggest checking for availability here first.
All ways a great place to spend a couple nights. Staff is great as is the location
Great experience. Helpful staff, ideal location. We will be back
Great stay, nice folks. Look forward to coming back up again.
Friendly , knowledgeable staff combined with clean restrooms and showers made it a great stay alone , then add all the things you can do in Boston from the marina and you have yourself an outstanding time .
Just visited over the weekend Chris and staff were helpful, informative, and the facilities were immaculate. You can’t beat the location next the North End, Quincy Market and the Harbor Walk. Best marina location in Boston, highly recommend boaters visit, you’ll love it. Vessel Mary Ann
We had a great visit and are looking forward to another visit soon. John and Jack were great!!! The other boaters were very friendly and responsible. People were wearing masks and kept their area clean and quiet. Thanks again, see you soon. Vin
Once again Chris, Jon, Jack and Ryan shined! they go out of their way to make you happy and feel welcomed. Facilities were immaculate. Thank you once again for a great long weekend!
Great view, but extremely noisy and bumpy due to lots of boat traffic. Service was okay.
Awesome as always. Deck hands courtesy & professional Always attentive My family will be back !
Sailing Catamaran - 44' X 25' X 4' There's no place to legitimately drop the hook in Boston Harbor, so a mooring ball it is! We arrived here in the early evening and tied up to a ball for a little over a week. Reservations are easy on Dockwa. Balls aren't assigned, so just grab an open one and dinghy into the office during normal business hours to get access cards and info. A little pricey at $75/night, this still amounts to a pretty sweet deal in Boston, and the location is incredible. Everything is a short walk, including some of the nation's best Italian food on Boston's North End. The Freedom Trail is easy on/off access from here. We walked it twice. The marina is secure and facilities are convenient. Laundry and showers are clean and well-kept. The dinghy dock along the south edge of the facility, along the rock wall of Long Wharf. It's configured with a hitching post, rather than cleats, so configure your lines for easy-on, easy-off. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and they operate an on-call pump-out boat for patrons!
Immaculate marina with a perfect location and great amenities. Everyone was so friendly! We will be back!
Great access to down town and tours
We stayed from July 4 to July 7 on a mooring. The staff was great and your restrooms and showers were spotless. Made us feel very comfortable during these Covid-19 times. There was also a Mega Yacht next door that brought hundreds of boats by to take pictures
My wife and I love this marina, it is only 16 miles from our mooring but provides great access to Boston. We feel like we are part of the family from the staff to the permanent residents, we are greeted and treated warmly. Great facility and know our gear (inflatable on the dock) is safe with the security in downtown Beantown. Thanks again to BWM Cap'n Dave and the crew of Babette
Normally I do not write comments, but the positive reviews I read prior to booking convinced me to secure a few nights of dock space for our sailboat, so here is mine. Very clean facility, best I've come across. Can't beat the location and convenience; after years of working in Boston, we looked at the city from a different view and perspective. Staff was friendly and helpful! We have AC on the boat and the electrical hook-ups were never a problem. Amenities were inviting with tables and grills. Newly renovated laundry, shower, and head. Great spot!
Great mooring! Easy to catch and relatively clean line. Exceptionally clean shower and laundry facilities! John brought gate key to the boat so fast, and he was really helpful - even offered to help me get diesel fuel. Loved the table with phone charger and the fan helped make it a bit cooler. Very comfortable and I will highly recommend!! Looking forward to staying again!
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.
Well run facility, clean restrooms, right in the middle of the waterfront action. we took a mooring ball, the water taxi is $15/person each way just to go 200 yards to the dinghy dock...use your dink. Highly recommend.
always a great stop, staff is top notch and the facilities are always clean and easily accessible. It’s on our list every year!
Boston Waterboat Marina has an excellent location. The dock masters were so helpful. It was easy to get in and out of the marina.
Great Marina friendly staff! We will definitely return soon!
Again this year the Marina is very clean and the marina crew very accommodating
Waterboat Marina never dissapoints - always clean and hospitality top notch. While the crowd, boat, and people watching was at a minimum due to the current Covid 19 restrictions, a great time was had with easy access to the City of Boston.
Excellent location. Excellent facilities. No better staff in the harbor.
Great spot in the middle of everything. Dock hands were very helpful. Nice complimentary coffee bar too! Will be back.
Fantastic place with great facilities!!!
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.
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
Friendly knowledgeable. Clean
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 ,
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!!!
Awesome people. Great accomodations.
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.
Third year we've been back.
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 and helpful dock hands.
Great location. Great staff. Always pleased when we stay there
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!
Great stay, great people, Great 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.
Everything was wesome as usual!!!
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!
