About


The Falmouth Town Marina is conveniently located within a well protected harbor for the area's most economically friendly cruising experience. Our rates are the least expensive in the area, as low as $1.00/ft with no minimum for the off peak seasons. (5 Dockage Rates: Spring=April & May, Early Summer=June, Summer=July & August, Early Fall= September, Fall=October to closing) The marina is located on Scranton Avenue in historic downtown Falmouth, birth place of "America the Beautiful" author Katherine Lee Bates. We are located less than 5 miles from Martha's Vineyard and only 3 miles from Woods Hole. The marina is walking distance from main street, beaches, groceries stores, shops and many restaurants. The marina consists of (7) floating finger piers and 108 total berths. The primary transient float is "D", directly in front of the marina building. We also rent out vacant seasonal slips as they become available. Larger vessels and overflow dockage is also provided at the east side of the mouth of the harbor (Tide's Bulkhead/flat wall tie up) and northern end of the harbor (Davis Bulkhead/flat wall tie up & Davis Floats). During the summer season the marina is staffed from 8am to 8pm. The marina monitors VHF channels 16 & 9 and our working frequency is channel 12. Please contact the staff via radio if you need any assistance during docking for arrivals or departures. The marina building has yachtsmen only bathrooms and showers. A key card is required to access that part of the building and available at the marina office. (refundable cash key deposit required) Public restrooms are also available on site. Please note at this time we do NOT offer WiFi connections.

Approach


From R "16" proceed northerly to the harbor entrance. The harbor entrance has lighted jetties on both sides. The main channel in Falmouth Harbor runs north/south on the westerly side of the mooring field. Town marina slips begin after you pass the Flying Bridge Restaurant and continue until you reach the inner harbor boat ramp, then again when you pass Pier 37 to the northern harbor bulkhead. (Floats run south to north "A" to "G") The primary transient float "D" is located directly in front of the marina building at 180 Scranton Ave. Several seasonal passenger only ferries run out of Falmouth Harbor so keep an eye out for them.

Two stays. First at the marina docks themselves and they are floating and good. Convenient to downtown as well. Second time we were out at the pier they control at the mouth of the harbor on our 55 pilot house. Not a good answer. Had a boater not paying attention and hit our starboard side. Exposure is too great there. Staff at the marina itself was exceptional.

The docks were nice as were the bathrooms, but the staff were inexperienced and had difficulty controlling and tying up my boat when I arrived. When I went to the office to check in they acted as though I was an imposition. I felt as though I was at the town tax assessor's office. In the future I'll stick to privately owned marinas.

Marina Response:
We are sorry your stay wasn't up to your expectations. This review is surprising given the many review compliments the staff get in general and this year in particular.

Marina Response:
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Our records show no complaints were every brought to the staffs attention. Most guests are happy to be near the Raw Bar. If you return please request the D dock as it isn't located near the Raw Bar or Flying Bridge Restaurant.

We were on F dock. Avoid at all cost. The town has 6 massive pumps running hundreds of gallons per min 20 ft behind this dock. The noise is obnoxious not what I expect when I pull into Marina. The reason for the 4 stars.

Marina Response:
We are sorry the shellfish upweller pumps caused you problems, we have never had any complaints regarding them in the past. Should you return and need a large slip we can use D 6 & 7 to get you away from the propagation center.

Very well protected marina near top of Falmouth Harbor, walking distance into town and West Marine, upscale market, Flying Bridge restaurant and Dunkin Donuts close by. Great floating docks a couple of feet above water level with very safe perforated metal surface. Key access to nearby bathrooms and showers that are kept very clean.

It would've been a 5 star review however they put us on the bulkhead which is almost at the mouth of the harbor. It was pretty rocky. Not so much for our Marlow but our friends 50' viking was rocking like crazy. We would've preferred to be at their main dock further in where there is less current and closer to town and the Raw Bar. We also had to run our Gen for our 50amp leg that runs our AC because the breaker kept overloading..Spent 6 days in Nantucket and travel alot, that never happens. We really like Falmouth and if need be stay in the same place, we would.
