We had a great time, Chad (Harbormaster) fulfilled our request...
Bare bones (no on-shore facilities offered but I think there are some by the Mayflower Museum) but well-placed moorings at 55% the cost of the YC. The launch service is a tad expensive but prompt and helpful.
Great stay, we were on mooring #5. Actually someone had overstayed on #5 so the harbormaster put us on a mooring in front of it. The HM was super attentive. The communication through the Dockwa app prior to our stay was outstanding. Be aware that the lightning launch is separate. From #5 it was $7 per person round trip. I'm pretty sure we could have negotiated a better daily rate if we needed more frequent trips, but we just did 2. Worked out great. I can't speak to the moorings out by the breakwater. I'm sure given the boat traffic you would get tossed around out there but #5 was great. We hung out on deck and listened to the band on-shore. There is plenty to do in Plymouth Harbor, great bars and food. There are no shower facilities at this time but for a one night stay it was fine. At $37 the price is right. I really can't say enough about the communication from the Harbor Masters office. They really make you feel like they want you there. Know what you're getting and not getting and plan accordingly and you will enjoy your stay.
great !!! had a good time easy mooring to get too. and would like to thank the harbor masters for all their hard work Great job to all !!!
Stay was easy. Paying ahead of time through Dockwa was certainly convenient.
Excellent service from fuel vendors, responsive Harbormaster office, courtesies all around. Engaging Town and good restaurants. Look forward to the next visit.
1) we had a mooring outside the breakwater, and the boats don’t slow down for the no wake zone. 2) no shower facilities. Most other places charge $30 and have shower facilities. 3) It mentioned launch service!!! It cost $24 round trip for 2 people. No where does it list the price of the launch. It would be nice if these problems could be fixed
Great location, friendly dock hands, lots do and see in Plymouth
Well-sheltered mooring field, reasonable rates, fuel at the harbormaster's location. Just beware of a lot of commercial traffic in the area.
Great harbor. Lots of action around the docks. Many great restaurants and bars close by. It is a little noisey because of live outdoor music until 12:30 on weekends though, but didn't bother us.
We have stayed in Plymouth Harbor in the past, ant it’s always been 5-Stars. Last night we had the mooring closest to the No Wake Zone. It was a few feet outside of the channel, and only a few feet from the No Wake Zone marker. This season, the No Wake Zone market was switched from a large floating dock with a big sign, to a smaller buoy. Needless to say, boaters don’t pay as much attention to the small buoy as they did the big dock. Mooring that close to the start of the No Wake Zone made for a very rough night for our three-year-old. There a number of real wahoos that flew past us. We got tossed.
Municipal staff was great, location was convenient. Only negatives were the mooring line was very gross with slimy marine growth and wakes from go fast boats that didn’t slow down.
Great mooring inside the seawall. Harbormaster was available and answered all our questions.
The Plymouth Harbormasters could not have been nicer or more supportive. We are traveling late in the season, so many services are not available, but they provided a pump out service and water. The town mooring (#5) was perfect throughout our four night stay while waiting for better weather and calm seas.
Great Harbor to spend some time in! Helpful Harbor Master and crew.
