We liked it enough to go back a second trip. The cautions are: weddings can blare music to 11:00 PM (I enjoyed it while hanging out), very rolly at times and facilities aren't 24 hours. Josh is a great dockhand.

Kirk and Josh went out of their way to accommodate us. Be aware that the toilet and showers are in the museum (which is free with dockage) so it is available only during museum hours.

Lovely mooring in Bristol harbor. The staff was responsive and welcoming. No launch service but there is a large dinghy dock.

Great place to grab a mooring. The staff was very helpful and so accommodating when we requested an earlier check-in time. The museum is a must see!

Accommodated request for our group of 4 boats to be close by in mooring field. Dockmaster leaves at 2 on Sundays so no ice available after that. Showers are only available during museum hours. Trash was overflowing at dumpsters. Water is available on the docks. Plenty of dinghy space. The mooring field is NOT in a no wake zone and boats go blasting through creating big wakes. If you’re not planning to visit the museum go further up to town within the no wake zone and be closer to shops and restaurants.

The area is very pretty; however there are no facilities available from 1700hrs to 0900hrs. No trash container; no bathroom, no showers ... nothing after 0900-1700. $100 mooring fee for the above GO FIGURE ? Ronald W Feher Raison Detre [email protected] 607-725-9706

Good price. Bristol can be a little rolly due to boat wakes. Staff was helpful when pedestal power didn't work (found another pedestal for us).

My only regret is not staying longer. Our stay was only a brief overnighter, and I wanted to enjoy the museum as well.

The marina was wonderful and the museum is a must see. It was very windy (20+ knots) and the staff were amazingly helpful with dock lines etc. I enjoy the short walk into town as well. It is a little rocky at night but the floating dock is better than a mooring because of how it is sheltered immediately next to a fixed pier, at least in a typical southwesterly.

Mooring area exposed to long fetch with resulting continuous wave action. Very uncomfortable resulting in early departure. Dock hand was a volunteer vwho was very nice

Just about everything was terrific. Just two small notes: (1) The docking process (previously reserved space) was a bit confusing - hard to understand just where to put the boat, and what sequence would be used between us and "Christine", also in the process of docking. Also, although the dock crew was satisfied that the assigned spot would accommodate our draft, we wound up with the rudder aground at low tide (departure time 1100), apparently because the bottom shoals up at the inner end of our berth. (2) A staff member locked up the dockside heads while a crew member was inside - led to a rather frightening experience. Additional note: I really didn't want to create a Marinas.com account, but was unable to submit this review without doing so.

Enjoyed our stay. The primary inconvenience was that the bathroom and shower facilities were closed on the afternoon of 7/4. They reopened on 7/5. Also, we didn't know how to access the wifi...no info on the webpage.
