Love this place and return regularly. We could wish the heads were available 24 x 7, but given the layout of the office it’s understandable.
l really can't say enough about the harbormaster team at Cole Parkway. We had a maintenance problem and they were extremely responsive and helpful. Marina facility is first class too! Location perfect...very close to multiple restaurants and other shops. Will definitely be back!
Great place and staff!
The mooring was where they said it would be. It was further from the Marina than I expected and there was no launch service in the evening. Oh well. We arrived at sunset and left at sunrise. A quick stop. Not much to say.
Moorings are too close. Neighbor swung into my stern
They need to be more clear on their amenities of what is included. Are there showers available? If so, where? Is there launch service? If so, what is the cost? A little more information would be very helpful. My mooring was excellent!
Harbormaster was very helpful. Mooring was priced reasonably. Town is nice; best Lobster bisque at Wharf Mill. Note: there is no tender, so you have to have a dinghy if using one of these moorings.
Scituate was great. All Business’s are open.
Harbormaster was quickly responsive when calling in for mooring assignment. Guys in the office very friendly. The launch we used was Cedar Point: $6.00 per person each way. Along with the tip, pretty expensive to get ashore. Showers and facilities available and clean. Mooring right at entrance to harbor, very open to the east.
Convenient mooring, easy to pick up and clean Harbormaster was courteous and helpful. Thank you
The marina stay was great. The Harbormaster met us upon arrival and assisted with the tieup. Good location for the slip, and the electrical service was perfect (30Amp x 2). There seems to have been a lot of work done on the floats and electrical service since our last visit in 2019. The Harbormaster and his staff are very friendly and checked with us more than once to see how our stay was going. There was no problem getting a pump out either. Hope to return next season. Jamie T.
Beautiful secure harbor Very pleasant 2 day stay!
Stay was great. All of the staff at the Harbor Masters office were great. I will be back again for sure. John Meskell
I arrived after dark to find that the Harbormaster had given my assigned slip (EZS) away. They put me on the pump out T dock of which I barley fit. Had to plug into two different power Stanton’s as each had either dead plugs or reversed polarity. Assistant harbormasters were no help and never left the harbormasters office. They only had a “yeah, sorry, don’t know what happened”. Definitely not worth my $118
Excellent. Very accommodating. The Harbor has gotten very busy over the years. Launch services aren't as easy to come by as one might expect for a Harbor that is as busy as it seems to be at least on weekends. Overall, it's one of the better safe havens you'll find in Cape Cod Bay.
Third time here. Love it. Beautiful harbor. We eat at the Barker Tavern and was great. Ice cream at Nona’s Homemade. We will be back for sure.
Lovely little marina. We came in with the wind blowing 25-30 kn IN the marina! The harbormaster was awesome - she came running down to help grab lines and secure the boat. Lovely little town with nice restaurants on the water. A wonderful stay.
Harbor master helpful in finding the mooring. The launch forgot about us and the facilities are mediocre at best. Good restaurant and provisioning options.
Excellent facility - great people very helpful
Beautiful marina with top-notch access to all Scituate Harbor has to offer. Will be back!
Helpful line handling when we landed. Visited in a 35’ Jenneau, and we were able to snug right in. Great location. Easy access to bars and restaurants. Calm and quiet while we slept.
The harbormasters were extremely helpful and kind. Thanks again!
The harbormasters were very friendly and helpful. Had a great meal on the water a stones throw from the slip and a coffee in the morning from Dunkin as well. The entrance to the harbor is a bit challenging on the way out, but just gun it to the bell buoy.
Harbormaster it was very helpful guiding us in. Laundromat is just 100 yards from the docks
Mooring is a considerable distance from marina offices. Launch service referred to was $6/person per ride so for 2 of us to visit town and back was more expensive than other marinas offering launch service. Docks are very nice and recently upgraded. Pumpout pretty easy to handle although no hands were available when we came in. Town and stores very handy to marina but cost of launch deterred us from coming back and exploring. Would have paid $10-15 more for mooring if launch was included.
Awesome Harbor Master. Great Service, very responsive. My wife and I had a great stay, the Mill Wharf Resturaunt is awesome!
It was a great experience. Everyone was so helpful
Very friendly and accommodating. New piles to hold the docks and a new ramp this year. Fun stay over on our cruise north or south to the canal. Look forward to our next stop over.
We requested help in docking and they were right there. Location of slip was excellent. First overnight trip my wife has gone on without kids and she had a great time. Wants to try it again. We’re both in our 70’s.
Harbormaster was VERY helpful and nice. Facilities are scarce. (Couldn’t find bathroom or trash). Floating docks are in good shape. I was on a mooring. Moorings are out near the entrance to the harbor. If you are on a ball, give them a call first, save yourself the trip into the harbor. (Which is very tight)
Great location. Mooring was challenging to find. Part of town system but seemed like a private marina. Staff was excellent and helpful. Would stay again!
We ducked into Scituate because of weather and assumed that the mooring was in the inner harbor because that’s where the Marina renting the moorings is located. They assigned us a town mooring in the outer harbor that was pretty lumpy all night. If I had known I would have continued on to the next harbor.
Nice Marina, beautiful scenery and we were right in the downtown area and within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. I gave this a 4 because showers were $4.00. This was never mentioned when we arrived. There was also no WiFi. Those amenities would have added to the experience even if they were built into the price.
Nice quiet spot. Easy in and out from Boston or Cape Cod Canal. Great staff, very helpful. Great meal at Salt Society which is a very short walk. All the stores and restaurants within 1/4 mile. We will stop again.
Nice mooring place, good facilities, very professional and friendly staff.
Scituate is a lovely town. The mooring (pricey) was out by the lighthouse and easy to hook up. We also figured out that there's a pay-to-ride launch service (Easy Rider) which made everything easier once we got aboard.
Great place to stay..staff is friendly and very accommodating..
Harbormaster folks were great. Floating docks in a protected harbor. Right down town with everything you would need in walking distance.
The balls are located near the harbr entrance channel, so it can be a little bouncy with wakes and swell, and it's a long dinghy ride to the harbormaster's dock (launch service is not included in the mooring fee). That said, we had a great time walking around town. The grocery store is small but adequate and very convenient to the dinghy docks.
nice mooring with padded cylinder ball and new, well maintained pendants. Good dock facility with water accessible right there and a fuel dock also close by. The harbormaster's mooring where we stayed in the "outer" harbor by G7, not in the inner basin like you may think from the pictures. It was very windy but still generally flat and a nice place to sleep. They're figuring out launch service as well, but you can pretty much call any of the other launches and pay cash if you need. Or BYO dinghy.
Beautiful harbor and friendly people! As long as you don’t expect them to help you dock, you won’t be disappointed.
Great overnight stopover
Great marina, friendly staff, It was great having help with the docklines as backing in to these slips is a bit tricky.
Nice harbor and friendly community
awesome, hassle free, great rates
Very nice slip spot , On short notice they accommodated my request, Thanks for a great weekend,
Nice folks great service...
We had some issues with the power but otherwise everything was great.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and proximity to many restaurants and beaches. We were lucky to see fireworks right from our slip both nights we were there. Neighboring boats were all friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!
Great people who work the dock and nice atmosphere.
These guys came out to help us dock with a huge thunderstorm approaching. Starting raining buckets about 2 minutes after we tied up.
No shower, no place to dispose of trash, only a portapotty, but friendly people. Water on dock only worked one day. Still ok to go there though. Nice town.
Loved our stay here! Right in the heart of Scituate, great restaurants, shopping and the views are beautiful! The marina personnel are the best and the people of Scituate are warm and welcoming. Will definitely be back
Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly!!! Great place to stay!
