A little tricky getting in and out navigation wise. The staff are very friendly and overall the experience was awesome
Thank you for your stars! We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit!
by jrosen54 on Aug 17, 2021
Kingman and the Pocassett harbor are wonderful. Great facilities and service. One of the most beautiful place that I have ever sat and watch the sunset, the wind, the sea and the stars.
Thank you for your review of Kingman Yacht Center! We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come back soon!
by neskora on Aug 16, 2021
Fantastic marina. Accommodated early arrival and even gave us a gift. Nice authentic restaurant on property.
It makes us very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your review and please come back to visit us again soon!
by gaalp84 on Aug 12, 2021
People/staff were friendly. Facilities were clean. Dinghy dock was full with weekend boat owners that park their dinghies during the week. We were there on Tuesday. Shore layout was confusing with no signage. You get up the to shore/dock and head directly into the restaurant. No signage as to where the marina office is located.
Thank you for your review! Sorry for any confusion. Most visitors arrive for the first time at the fuel dock or via our launch service. We've never really considered signage at the dinghy dock, but we'll review that. That you for your suggestion as well!
by tonyraymond on Aug 11, 2021
Pro; Well kept facility. Answered the radio right away. The onsite restaurant was nice to have after a long day on the water in lousy conditions.
Con: Arrived at 8 pm, right at dark, directions to the slip could have been better. "Turn left at the Hatteras" wasn't helpful in the dark. No dock hands were available. Two fellow boaters helped tie us up. No one from the marina ever stopped by either that night or the next morning to see if we needed anything. Maybe we'll try Onset the next time we need a stop over after transiting the CC canal from the east.
We apologize for not being on hand to greet you upon your arrival. Our dock staff works until 7:30pm and only the launch operator is available thereafter. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay and come back to let us earn the rest of the stars.
by fhmorrisbvp on Aug 10, 2021
Great launch drivers. Unfortunately couldn’t get yard service to help with a halyard issue (went up the mast myself the next day).
We're sorry that we weren't available to help with your halyard. Great that you got it squared away and enjoyed your stay. Thank you for visiting!
by michaelscohen on Aug 09, 2021
One of the best stops in Buzzards Bay. Great docks and staff, The Chart Room (n to to be missed) and one of the best sunsets you can find while sipping a cocktail in an Adirondack chair on the lawn....what more could a cruiser want?
Thank you michaelscohen! Please come back to visit us again soon!
by narrowrivet on Aug 03, 2021

Just picked up a morning this time but professional communication from start to finish. Thanks! Same second time around.
Thank you for visiting - and for your kind words!

Red Rock Harbor is well protected. Mooring was in good shape. Dinghy dock crowded and undersized for the mooring field. Pleasant and helpful staff. Chart Room restaurant was just OK.
We're pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for your review!
by rajordan01 on Jul 16, 2021
This is a world-class Marina with excellent facilities and service. Jeff Pimental is an excellent dockmaster.
Thank you for your stars!!!
by avante on Jul 15, 2021
The Staff was amazing and went above and beyond! They took care of our needs and concerns! Beautiful, clean marina! Tim from the Repair Department even checked our Turbos for us and gave us part numbers to repair them this winter. Directions into the Marina were thorough and clear! We will return! 10 stars!!!!
Wow! Ten stars! Thanks so much. We're very pleased that you had a great stay with us!

Perfect stop, very helpful staff at the fuel dock and always love a good meal at the Chartroom!
We love stars! Thank you! Please visit again soon.
by jcpaul on Jun 22, 2021
Our 6/19 stay at Kingman was perfect as expected. They immediately responded to our call on Channel 71, passed clear and concise directions to our slip, and then had two dockhands meet us to assist with tie-up. Bathrooms / showers were clean, coffee was good in the AM, and we're looking at the calendar to see if we can book another trip this summer. Thanks for a great experience.
We can't wait to welcome you back! Thank you for your kind words!
by glennbig on Jun 20, 2021
Beautiful Spot, Really helpful friendly staff and great restaurant. This has become one of our favorite places to stop.
Thank you for your stars! Please come back to visit soon.
by duffyd04043 on Jun 17, 2021
We love this place. A regular stop for us going north and south.
And we love having you visit! Thank you for your kind words!
by eboutiette on Jun 11, 2021
The harbor is well protected. The north entrance is challenging but necessary draft depending. We were disappointed that the diesel pumps were not working especially because we called them about an hour prior to arrival to let them know we planned to first go to the fuel dock and they never mentioned the issue. The Dockwa description mentions a “welcome packet” which never materialized. And the restaurant was closed even though the website says they are open.
We apologize for the glitches in your visit. The diesel electronic control panel died and will be back up this afternoon - not that that helps you at this point. If you'll email your name and address to [email protected]
we'll get a Kingman Yacht Center tote bag in the mail to you right away. The Chart Room is open 7 days a week beginning June 16th. Just weekends in the early season. We hope that you'll try us again and give us a chance to earn the other stars.
by marilois on Jun 09, 2021
Great service. Fun to hang at Chart Room restaurant at end of day.
Thank you for your review! We’re very pleased that you enjoy it here!
by backcove33 on Jun 07, 2021
Very seldom do we have any issues with our visits to Kingman. The staff is always helpful as they were on this trip. Looking forward to our next return visit
Thank you for your review and for your visit! We hope to welcome you back soon.
by dthompsonusa on May 16, 2021
Loved it! Austin was super friendly and accommodating. We will be back!
Thank you! We hope to see you back soon!
by cdahl303 on Oct 03, 2020
Everything about this Harbor is lovely- the Marina is very nice, the restaurant is good, the staff could not be more attentive and well trained. BUT ..there is a significant problem with birds. If you plan to stay at this marina bring bird deterrents - at least 3 or 4 different ones. do NOT leave your boat unattended over night. We were impacted several times (even with defenses in place) We spent 3-4 hours each time trying to clean it up , every boat around us was impacted - we had friends who passed through who said they would likely not be returning because of this problem - If you have a fool proof bird deterrents system - you will be fine.
Upper Buzzards Bay has been an extremely fertile fishing ground for seabirds this year. We’re sorry for your encounters but grateful for the abundant wildlife.
by laguerrel on Sep 26, 2020
Both of the lines on the mooring were rotted out. There were no loops on either end. Our expectation is for an easy snd safe approach to a mooring R11
Thank you for letting us know about the pennants. The seasonal renter must have had it set up for his boat. We’ll replace them immediately.
FOLOWUP: Upon inspection the pennants had clearly been run over and cut near the ends. Thank you for reporting this. They have been replaced.
by runaround on Sep 25, 2020
Late in the season overnight. The marina and facilities are top notch.
We arrived around 6pm and due to it being late in the season, no one was available to tell us what number or where our slip was located. We stayed on the dock, had dinner at the Chartroom restaurant and had a very nice stay. Our 4 star rating Probably should be 5, we just there should have been a little better communication.
We're sorry we missed you, but delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Let us know in advance the next time you'll arrive late and we'll be sure to get you your slip information. Thank you for your review!
by samafo on Sep 16, 2020
I’ve stayed at a mooring at Kingman 3 nights over the last 2 weeks. Peaceful setting with beautiful sunsets. Coming from Gloucester it is convenient as a first stop after going through the canal. We used as jumping off point for cuttyhunk, Vineyard, Newport. We even made it to Montauk from there in rough conditions. Fuel dock is convenient with helpful, energetic staff. Didn’t use the launch but they responded quickly to all calls I heard. Plan to go back often to use as base in that area or as starting point for longer trips. Also attentive to dockwa requests and chats. Hope to be back soon!
Thank you for your review and your kind words! We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
by finxtr on Sep 10, 2020
Good service at fuel dock.
Thank you for visiting and for your review!
by johnkbullard on Sep 09, 2020
A launch came right out to meet us and guide us to our mooring. We were able to get reservations for dinner at the nearby Chart House restaurant and the drinks and dinner were delicious. On our return a few days later we stopped to take on full and the attendants were friendly, professional and quick. They also helped with the pompous. They were great with our lines. All and all we will be sure to return!
We’re pleased that you enjoyed your visit and thank you for your kind words!
by jimaria1010 on Sep 07, 2020
KYC is wonderful. Staff guided us in via radio to our mooring, great tender service and everyone in the center was friendly. Will definitely come back next season. Only disappointment was that I didn't get a welcome bag.
PS if you want dinner at the Chart room, make your reservation days ahead... worth it!
Thank you for your review! We’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay. If you’ll email the days of your stay, your name and making address to [email protected]
I’ll mail you a gift tote. I’m sorry we missed you.
by adelboat on Aug 30, 2020
This marina is the best - change your plans and stay here! They have everything: great location; well-equipped ship’s store (or will get what you need); fun art gallery; wonderful restaurant; and amazing sunsets. More important, they have the most friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff. They only know “yes”. We took an extended sail vacation and stayed with them twice. Our plans changed a bit and they were always helpful when we needed to adjust dates. Stay here!
Wow! Thank you for your great review! We’re so pleased that you visited and enjoyed your stays!
by mconsiglio1 on Aug 25, 2020

We returned for a second visit this Summer. Kingman YC was as good as the first visit. Professional, courteous and friendly staff, made it a very pleasant stay.
Thank you for your kind words! We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit!
by gretgov on Aug 13, 2020
Awesome service, as usual! Always smiling faces, helping hands at fuel dock and finding mooring. Nice job converting the restaurant area during the pandemic.
We love stars! Thank you. Please visit us again soon!
by debschradieck on Aug 11, 2020
We stay at Kingman every year and it's always a pleasure. The staff is friendly and always there to help. We always get a great meal at The Chart Room where this year there is plenty of outdoor seating and CDC guidelines are being followed. Nearby Bassett's Island has a nice beach with warm water. It's an all-around great place to visit!
It was great to have you back! Thank you very much for your kind words and for including Kingman in your cruising plans!
by cheryl2hilk on Aug 04, 2020
We stayed on a mooring ball for 2 nights - easy to reserve on Dockwa. We planned to stay 5 nights and be there during Hurricane Isaias. On our way there, KYC called us and said we could not say past Sunday morning as they do not allow transients during hurricanes. We were disappointed by that news, but went anyway for 2 nights. The facility is very nice and the services were well-run. Beautiful location. Great area for bike riding and hiking. Did not have time to paddle board, but lots of people were doing that. Did not go to the beach, but it looked fun. We would go back.
We’re sorry that the storm forced us to cut your stay short, but delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Please come again!
by oseadmainship on Aug 02, 2020
Wonderful location, protected, easy in and out. Staff very friendly. Would definitely be a 5 star review except the dinghy dock is seriously overcrowded again this year. Chart Room is no longer pet friendly in the outdoor area.
Thank you for visiting! The dinghy dock is crowded this season because of irregular early-season launch operations, so we've expanded complimentary launch operations so that visitors don't have to use their dinghies. We hope you'll come back soon and let us know how it's working.
by dmurdock on Aug 02, 2020
Stay for one night was excellent. Was a great stop to make while making our way to Cuddyhunk the next day. The Chart Room for dinner was excellent we had 10 for dinner and the service was excellent! Would definitely stay at Kingman again and hope to get back that way next year!!
Sounds like a perfect trip! Thank you for visiting and we looking forward to seeing you again next season!
by guttago on Aug 01, 2020
Awesome stay again. Love it here every year !!
Welcome back! We love having you here every year!
by stevepi on Jul 30, 2020
Great place in it self! No stores or restaurants in walking distance. One restaurant in marina, no breakfast and a little pricey. Food is very good!
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Wanted you to know that we now serve coffee and other light breakfast fare to help get you started in the morning. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

by jimtarbox on Jul 27, 2020
We stayed on a mooring. Easy in and out. Responsive on VHF Ch71 upon arrival. Launch service was excellent. Marina was clean and organized. I would stay there again.
... And we hope you do! Thank you for your stars!
by ngrenet on Jul 27, 2020
One of our favorite marinas in the area. Beautiful location, great service, friendly and helpful staff.
We’ll be back !
We can't wait to welcome you back! Thank you for your review!
by northernlights on Jul 25, 2020
Awesome staff! Lost my phone overboard and they were accommodating to extend our dock time until a new phone arrived! Always a great spot!
We’re still sorry about your phone - but glad that we could help to make things right. Thank you for your review!
by seasicksue on Jul 24, 2020
There is a dinghy dock but it's so overcrowded it's impossible to dock. You have to crawl over other dinghies to be able to reach the dock. Sadly they are no longer dog friendly.
Now that the launch is operating on a regular schedule the dinghy dock should begin to free up a bit, but it is crowded this season. Outdoor dining has also put more restriction on dog-friendly areas. We’re learning to adapt and hope your next visit is more pleasant.
by vk on Jul 17, 2020
Great Marina. Welcoming, friendly and professional staff. Clean facilities. Easy booking. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.
Thank you for your visit and for your glowing review! We hope to welcome you back soon.
by silverheels on Jul 07, 2020
7' draft easy in/out of the channel, 10' min depth at mid tide. The harbor has calm water with wind any direction and locals are respectful of no-wakes, even on the holiday weekend. The harbor/dock staff are competent and pleasant. We bought fuel but did not use shore facilities. The on-site restaurant had good food with beautiful harbor views. Did not give the marina 5 stars because the dinghy dock is seriously overcrowded. It's way too small for the large number of moored boats using it and it's a real hassle getting in and out. It's also pretty unstable to walk on and quite exciting for two people to pass carrying provisions and gear. The only other issue we had was having to move to a different mooring as we did not have enough swing room for 55' boat in N/NE wind. We woke up one morning to find the ball of the boat behind us under our swim deck. The Dockmaster was quick to help out though and moved another boat to accommodate us. Very professional. Overall a pleasant stay in a gorgeous harbor and we would definitely return.
Thank you very much for your kind words! We;'re pleased that you enjoyed your stay. To be sure, the dinghy dock is crowded this season with the uncertainty about launch operations under the former COVID-19 guidelines. The launch is operating 8AM-9PM daily, and we hope you'll come back and give it a try!
by tonyiiiafl on Jun 22, 2020
Kingmans is a destination with the rustic charm of Cape Cod and the venerable Chart Room restaurant. People are kind and considerate and they strive for excellence which they achieved. Restrooms and showers are impeccable. A great stay and we would come back again.
Thank you for your review of Kingman Yacht Center! We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back soon!
by cfiset on Jun 14, 2020
Although we have visited Kingman Yacht Center on see real occasions for the Chart Room And Candy store this was our first overnight and the marina and it was spectacular. Service is always on point and we will definitely be back in the near future. Thank you!
We’re glad that you enjoyed your visit! Please come back soon!

Great service, fun and good restaurant
We're very happy that you had a good time - and that you took the time to submit your review! Thank you.
by shanagolden on Oct 19, 2019
We have stayed at Kingman’s many times before. The two women working in the office this time were very rude. They appeared annoyed when asked for information about the facilities, etc.
We’re very sorry to hear of your bad experience. Please call me, Scott, and I’ll arrange for a complimentary next visit to try to make it up to you. 508/563-7136.
by lorimclean on Oct 11, 2019
Great facility with lovely staff. But if you draw more than 5’, be very careful to coming in either passage, perhaps only attempt at high tide. We hit hard on a rock in the middle of the north channel approach. Once you arrive at Kingman, there’s lots of water. Restaurant is only open on weekends after Labor Day.
We're sorry to hear of your encounter with the bottom, and a little surprised as the North Channel controlling depth is around 8'. We're glad that you made it safely and that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!
by nharri1989 on Sep 21, 2019
Very quiet setting, beautiful sunsets, and friendly patrons and staff. Good restaurant on site and internet worked well for streaming Netflix. Very dog friendly too. We came in and out via the deeper northern route. Saw nothing less than 10 feet at mid tide, but tricky in a couple places so study charts beforehand.
We’re very pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your kind words. Please come visit us again soon!
by jamesjlyons on Sep 03, 2019
GREAT TIME - EXCELLENT SERVICE - LOCATION LOCATION!
We love it here, too! Thank you for visiting and for your enthusiastic review!
by sailing on Sep 01, 2019
Always a great port to stop! I love the launch drivers and deck hands. They go overboard (no pun intended) to be helpful. It’s one of most favorite places to visit.
Thank you! We hope you’ll visit us again soon!
by drogers100 on Aug 23, 2019
Staff was friendly, dinghy dock needs to be extended. Channel well marked but skinny in places. Chart room is unable to serve food outdoors so can not accommodate pets
Thank you for your review. We’re pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Chart Room take out is available so you can enjoy your meal with your pet on your next visit.

Top notch dock staff, went above and beyond to accommodate the guest. Will return here for sure.
We look forward to your return! Thank you for your review!
by dvonloes on Aug 06, 2019
Came back again for two more nights en route to/from destinations further south. Always fun and a pleasure to be served by such courteous launch and fuel dock crew. We sure kept the launch busy with guests coming and going and with a dog who needed periodic relief!
Great marina. Super friendly and helpful staff for both the launch service and at the dock. Great location for relaxing at Chart Room restaurant or anchoring off Bassetts Island. Large, well organized and well-marked mooring field. Very easy to find our spot. N and S Channels in and out not as intimidating as might appear on a chart. Just pay attention to your GPS and the markers. You’ll be rewarded by a great stay.
Thank you for your kind words! We’re pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you’ll come back soon. Have a great summah!
by tidetogether on Aug 06, 2019

Thank you for visiting. Thank you for noting our ongoing improvement efforts. We hope to see you again soon!
by sqokj8avul_samrkcxvd on Jul 28, 2019

We’re very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!
by molearytayloroilco on Jul 22, 2019

We love stars! Thank you. We hope to welcome you back soon!
by gverdine on Sep 04, 2018
This place has got it all, beautiful, protected setting, very professional operation, delicious and healthy food at the Chart House, and a lively but not rowdy night scene. Highly recommended!!!
Thank you for your kind words and review of Kingman Yacht Center!
by jdudek on Aug 29, 2018
Scott and his family were spectacular on our ‘extended’ stay at Kingman. Needing to stay a few extra days due to both weather and mechanical issues, the team at Kingman made it effortless and relaxing. Deb and Jim in service were rock stars, not only finding me a part for my boat that would have been otherwise hard to find, Deb negotiated a much lower price saving me hundreds. It’s possible we made up the difference in mudslides. Within two hours of the part being delivered, we were untied and on our way.
We hope be back next year, but also hope to see Scott and team at the MBYCA Invasion next summer.
Thanks again for your hospitality and professionalism.
John and Carol and the WYC Castaways.
It was a pleasure having you and your group stay with us. Thank you for your kind words - and we'd love to welcome you back next summer!
by ppetteruti on Aug 21, 2018
Not a fun experience. Had to hail the marina multiple times just to get a slip assignment when pulling into the harbor. An email or call in advance would be much easier. Then I return to the boat to find that it has been moved without my permission because they double booked my slip and gave it away to another customer and left mine on the fuel dock. Only way I found this out was because the guy who my slip was given too told me. A simple phone call or email notifying me that they needed to move it or put it in another slip would have been the bare minimum I would have expected. Instead I go down to where my boat was parked and it was just gone.
We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your arrival. Not that it should make any difference, but all of our slips are privately owned and I believe that the owner of your assigned slip decided to come back a day earlier than he had told us. You arrived back at your boat while we were waiting to move it to a new assignment which was not yet vacant. We would certainly have called to tell you of the new location once you were all tucked in. If you will email me at [email protected]
with your contact information and boat name, I will see that we refund your dockage for the evening. I trust that the rest of your stay was enjoyable and hope that we'll have a chance to show you a better time upon a return visit.

Easy end slip. Dock help indicated we should check in and get a tote bag. When we went to the office they didn't offer us anything. Protected marina. Some waves from the launch but they end early. Suggest making reservations for the restaurant since it gets really busy. Bathrooms were clean but a short walk away. Had hoped to visit Bassetts island but the weather didn't cooperate. Will return another time.
Thank you for visiting Kingman Yacht Center, and for taking the time to share your review. If you didn't receive your complimentary tote bag, please email your address to [email protected]
and I'll pop one in the mail to you. We hope to see you again soon!

Full service yard if you need it; launch drivers responsive and helpful. Young woman at desk in dockhouse seemed to be having a bad day...every day. Popular restaurant on site. "Hiking trails" are at county park about .5 mi up winding road with no sidewalk. "Private Beach" is at Barrett's Island across harbor.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. We hope you'll visit again so we can work to earn the rest of those stars.

Great staff, had a breakdown coming in at 2pm on a Saturday. They quickly helped us to the dock, got a mechanic on board who found the problem and had us on our way by 4. Very helpful, friendly, smart.
Thank you for your kind words about Kingman Yacht Center. We hope that your next visit will be much less eventful!

Staff was very confused about where we were going to dock. They did however do a nice job of helping us tie up, but then disappeared in a flash without mentioning a word ( i.e. nothing about their facility or layout). Surrounding area is nice, even if the marina is a long way down a winding, narrow and very shallow channel. We would consider staying here again.
We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced upon arrival. Our difficulty in juggling multiple arrivals and departures should not have caused problems with your stay. We certainly hope that you were given a tote bag with contents that describe our facility and the surrounding areas, and that we'll have a chance to earn a better review on your next visit.

Bathroom facilities were great. Staff was very rude. They were not friendly at all. They all seemed to be unhappy with there jobs.
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Kingman Yacht Center - and quite surprised because our staff is praised in most all other reviews. We take customer care very seriously, and hope that you'll give us a chance to improve your experience here.

Spectacular floating docks, cheerful and helpful staff (and cute), clean well-maintained everything, busy restaurant.

Had a nice dock space on the outer edge. Very convenient to the Chart House.

Lovely harbor, and outstanding, smart launch drivers
by bill.littell on Aug 06, 2017
The staff is great. The bathroom/showers are a put off. The showers lack a dedicated stall which results in water all over the floor. Also the floors are "raw" concrete.

We enjoyed our third visit at Kingman Marine and extended our stay by several days. Deb had the filter I needed for my Onan and the Chart Room is always a good stop. Uber was helpful (no rental company had an available car). Only drawback was some frustration in contacting someone to address my wife's questions, unfortunately she did not recall having been there before with this boat.

Three days on mooring and really enjoyed our first time stay in Red Brook Harbor. Great, free launch service and marvelous restaurant, The Chart Room. Nice hiking trail and walk to local breakfast restaurant. Great time
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay! We're very happy that you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again soon.

Friendly, capable staff. It's a busy place, but after winding our way around through a confusing channel, it was a very pleasant stay. If this is your first time in, I'd recommend entering near high tide.
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Both entry channels have a controlling depth of at least 6' at MLW and tide range is about 4'. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

Very pleasant stay. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Free launch service. Free pump-out at Fuel Dock. Excellent dock-side restaurant.
Bourne Pump-out (not related to Kingman Marina) is supposed to be available for boat side pump out...but was unresponsive for the 2 days we were there. They never answered out calls on VHF 9. Fortunately, the free fuel dock pump out was available.
Would not hesitate to return.
We're glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you back soon!
