About


Destination found…Stay, Eat, Drink, Chill, and Play. Cape Ann Marina's protected, calm basin just inside Gloucester Harbor is a great place to visit for lunch, the night, or the season. Visit Mile Marker One Waterfront Restaurant and bar, stay overnight in our waterfront hotel rooms, celebrate a wedding or function in our Waterfront Pavilion Tent, fuel up, pump-out, or let our crew help you with any marine services. Voted "Best Marina" by Northshore Magazine for the past six years!

We are a premier destination for boaters traveling from the north or south. While we are home to the TV series WICKED TUNA boats and crews, we are also home for 292 vessels and visiting vessels alike. We are close to popular fishing spots like Stellwagen Bank and Jeffrey’s, to name a few, as well as near great areas for whale watching too. Maybe it is beaches and cruising you are interested in? Wingaersheek Beach and Cranes Beach are very popular for rafting up, using your SUP or dingy to explore our salt marshes and sandbars, or sitting back for another sunset.

Dock & Dine at our Mile Marker One Restaurant, a popular boating destination as well. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails, this is the place to sip our house favorite “Pain Killer". You can order online and pick it up dockside, including picnic cruising nibbles, mixed drinks, beer & wine all to go. Go to milemarkerone.com to order.

Cape Ann Marine Sales & Service is on-site to help with all your boating needs, hosting a stocked marine store and dealership for Yamaha, Suzuki & Cummings. Check out our website for more storage, boat yard, and marine services we offer.

Dockmaster Karl is on top of it all. Great service as always.

We ended our boating season with a nice long weekend at Cape Ann Marina, the weather was great and the dock crew always accommodating. It was challenging trying to navigate the ONGOING on-site construction, I hope they can finish up before next season as it's quite a mess. One BBQ grill on N Dock being shared by all,, had us waiting till well after dark to eat. As the other new grill was without propane (and missing burners). When we tried using this grill on Friday it had propane, but we were asked to move because there was a wedding going on (further validating they care little about transient boaters visiting). Out of ice on Sunday, and only one shower does make it a bit challenging. I wish they would upgrade some of the amenities to make for a better 'mariners experience' as it seems they care little about the boaters and more about the 'public facing' hotel & restaurant' side of the business. why they shut down the pool area for swimming and a Koi pond makes no sense at all. I would like to give the marina more stars and a higher grade.. but for a second full season the marina really is a mess. and to be completely honest,, the only reason we keep coming back is because of the welcome and accommodating nature of Karl the dock master and the hospitality of the boaters that reside at the marina 'especially 'B' dock'. I cant say enough about Karl keeping everything running and everyone accommodated Sunday with little to no help. he was SOLO for most of the afternoon,, literally running from the gas dock to other dock areas around the marina landing boats all day. I was very impressed with his calm nature and upbeat attitude but exhausted watching him. please get him the much needed dock hands he deserves before we lose him to a more competent marina. we'll be back as soon as we can.. but I cant really recommend Cape Ann Marina to other boaters in the current 'substandard' condition. I hope they get their collective act together, as it's a great location. .. and would think accommodating the mariners experience should be their main focus instead of an afterthought as it is now.

Had a wonderful stay. Carl is a great dock master. He responded to all my phone calls about concerns with the channel depths since we were arriving at low tide. An interesting drawbridge at the entrance to the Blynman Canal to say the least! Lots of boats in the marina with a fairly industrial feel. A nice place to stay in Gloucester.

All was really great until I took a shower in the Marina shower facility. Disgusting!!! Black mold on shower curtain, shower stall filthy, sink jammed with white muck. Shelves dirty.

Great place to visit and stay, Karl the dockmaster is always great to deal with and we were well accommodated for our 2 night stay. The resort environment was clean and well staffed, only a short walk to downtown and the restaurant was great for dining and watching the hustle and bustle of the very active marina. Fuel and pump out dock staff were also very friendly and helpful. Great stop that is well protected and easy to navigate. Can’t wait to visit again!

Wish I could give 1/2 star! I would rate this marina 4 1/2. Excellent location.Dock in very good condition and staff were welcoming. Heads were clean. Wish they had a pet area, not much green. Easy walk to prominade and about a mile into town.Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

Carl the DM is awesome. Great location. Only issue us getting reservations at the restaurant.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your five star review! We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us was. Mile Marker One restaurant has had to limit the seating due to COVID-19, which becomes challenging to keep up with our normal seasonal demand for diners. MM1 had to shift to online reservations only this year due to the demand and they way it has to operate. Sorry for the inconvenience, we look forward to your next visit soon and we always say to book early for both your boat and if you choose to dine or stay in the hotel with us.

The dock master was very helpful and the marina and bathrooms were well taken care of. However, the Beacon Wi-Fi is horrible because even if it works, which is doubtful, it’s incredibly slow. The marinas in Newburyport finally got rid of Beacon and got OnSpot which works great.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the review, your feedback is appreciated on your experience with us. We are aware of our week Wi-Fi and an upgrade is in process with Beacon and our internet provider. Beacon has been great to work with, we have a diverse property where a lot of guests, boaters and users can be here all at one time and it does bog down our current systems. We hope to have the upgrade in place in the near future and look forward to seeing you again soon.

We called harbor master and he was responsive. initially added us for the wait-list and mentioned he will call back later, which he did and gave us a slip. When we arrived, the staff were great, they answered all our questions, responded to our arrival radio check and provided all the info we needed. they were all wearing masks which was really great and appreciated. We will visit again.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the five star review! We are glad Karl was able to accommodate you off the wait-list...it is like playing Tetrus with departures, arrivals and weather of course. Safety is the name of the game this year, so we appreciate the feedback that you felt safe upon your arrival and during your stay. We hope that this pandemic disappears and we can catch your lines without a mask soon.

Dock master was able to accommodate all our boats in one area . Food was good at mile marker bar, short walk to causeway restaurant for lunch , and a short boat ride to wingersheek beach.
