I did not realize when I booked the mooring in Vineyard Haven that the Marina's moorings are all outside the barrier. Also, as a mooring customer with the Marina you are not permitted to use the Marina's facilities. Facilities are only for dock customers. The moorings inside the barrier are managed by the Vineyard Haven Harbormaster. These moorings are first come first serve and you can use the facilities (showers) at the town beach. It was very rough and windy when we arrived. I was afraid if I spent time below I would become seasick. My whole family was uncomfortable. We ended up switching to a town mooring inside the barrier. I wish Dockwa made the mooring location clear before we booked.
Awesome Marina,amazing dockhands!! GreatTime!
Nice location enjoyed the quaintness of the area.
A lovely evening in Vineyard Haven. Still fairly quiet. Summer is here.
We were supposed to stay at Vineyard Haven Marina 6/18/18 but a small craft warning was issued by NOAA and my guests on the boat were uneasy with sailing in those conditions. I called Vineyard Haven to cancel, got only a recording, left a message explaining and canceling and left my phone number that they might contact me. Heard nothing back and see no credit on the card that was used. Even if they feel justified in keeping my fee it is negligent to not communicate.
One of my favorite destinations. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The overall facility is updated, very private and the bathrooms are always clean. The location is great, within walking distance of several restaurants and beaches. The private boaters lounge is a great bonus.
Marina staff not personal and somewhat standoffish. The mooring was pick your own, it was outside the breakwater exposed to any wind coming from the North. In addition it was exposed to everyone's wake entering the harbor or coming up Vineyard Haven Sound.
As always VH Marina goes above and Beyond with their service, we got delayed in another harbor due to weather, have VH marina a heads up no worries we will move your arrival times things like that are all the reason I need to return.
Thanks agaIN S/V KAIROS
Launch was very efficient and friendly. I was told that there were no slips available but that evening several were empty.
Easy to reserve and easy on and off mooring
The moorings are not protected enough from general boat traffic and Ferry wakes in the channel and a North East wind. Kinda strange they don't have a "no wake zone."
VH Marina is not for sailboats I strongly urge you to change your affiliation. The marina has an attitude problem and is not very helpful
