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!

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!

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.

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!

Awesome stay again. Love it here every year !!
Welcome back! We love having you here every year!
by paulsi 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!

Great place to stay, staff is great!
Thank you for your review!
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 georgem on Jul 19, 2020
Dock staff and launch captain were very professional, helpful and friendly. Instructions were very clear and concise. We will be back !! ( Try the lobster salad at the Chart House ).
Thank you for your kind words! We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit!

Great Marina. Welcoming, friendly and professional staff. Clean facilities. Easy booking. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Great stay. Chart Room for dinner was excellent.
We love stars! Thank you for your visit and for your review!
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!

Beautiful location and terrific service. Staff was very helpful.
Thank you for your kind words. We’re very pleased that you enjoyed your visit!
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 glennbig on Jun 21, 2020
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 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!

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!

This was our third year staying there. Nice destination from and to North shore MA. Last few years was not impressed with shower facilities but they made some significant improvements. Very nice now.
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
Beautiful spot, friendly and professional staff. Facilities clean and well maintained. Nice dinner at Chart Room, good food with piano bar. Be sure to make reservation, at least on weekend. Stay in marked channel on entering harbor. Great spot!
We’re very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!
by molearytayloroilco on Jul 22, 2019
I made a late reservation and Justin went out of us way to make sure I was taken care of. I was docking my 41' sailboat alone but All of the dock staff were super helpful.
Very happy to be able to help. We hope to see you again soon!

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.
by rigirly on Aug 13, 2018
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!
by steadfast1997 on Aug 13, 2018
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.
by jrosen54 on Aug 09, 2018
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.

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!
by ultraccd on Jul 09, 2018
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.

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.
by dbbentley on Aug 02, 2017
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.
by margozink on Jul 29, 2017
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.
by wrm on Jul 24, 2017
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!

I love Kingman because it has something for the whole family and all that we need when we are boating. They truly make our on the water time a true vacation experience.
