Arrival instructions to our slip were very clear and helpful as it was our first time here. If you have a dinghy on the stern and go in stern to, you need to take it off to access the bulkhead ladders. There was no help docking. The harbor was very still so was able to easily handle. With just wife me I. Water and electricity worked well. Easy location to access whole island from. After Labor Day so really nice and not crowded.

We just wrapped our 3rd annual summer family vacation at Oak Bluffs Marina and had a terrific time. Staff was immediately responsive on Channel 71 when we radioed from just outside the harbor and we arrived at our slip to find a dockhand ready to check us in. Mechanical issues changed out plans slightly but they were able to find a solution quickly and with zero inconvenience to us which we appreciated.
As for the stay, we love being in Oak Bluffs Marina which is walking distance to all local restaurants and attractions. Our daughter loves to see the Pirate Ship come by multiple times a day and my wife and I enjoy seeing the boats come and go all day.
Highly recommend this destination.

Unfortunately due to weather we were not able to take our boat out... bummed that policy says we still get charged for the night. We showed up for our second day after a rough Saturday morning boat ride and had a great time at the fireworks. We are long time slip renters (25+ years)
by CARL M. - Verified user on Aug 17, 2023
It was an excellent stay! Pump outs for holding tanks were very easy to schedule. Electric and water supply was reliable. Oak Bluff marina is within walking distance to the ferry , restaurants, circuit street and other main attractions. The only possible negative issue is that docking is up against the bulkhead between pilings. Getting on or off of our boat was by the bulkhead wooden ladder. This could be difficult for the elderly or physically impaired! However that is the nature of bulkhead docking when floating docks aren’t available. I would definitely stay here at the marina again. There is gas and diesel fuel available at the marina. I would recommend refuel in as soon as u arrive. I always like to be prepared to depart without having to first worry about refueling especially if you are trying to be foul weather on your return home. The last thing of note is that I used the DOCKWA.com app to request a reservation for August 5th thru August 20th. I was only confirmed for August 5the thru 15th. I was waitlisted for the 15th thru 20th . A storm resulted in cancellations so the marina was able to extend my slip for one mor day. The night of the 15th. I had to go to a mooring ball in the Harbor for the rest of my stay. The Oak Bluff staff were helpful with assistance in attaching to a mooring however I am disheartened by my second time being waitlisted for the very popular August 15 th thru 20th activities. I may not return again in 2024 if I am waitlisted for part of my requested reservation. Again very nice stay! Great Marina to stay in for the duration of your vacation by boat in MV!

We were aware of this prior to making our reservation, so there were no surprises.

Busy harbor hard to get into the slip with all the traffic. Once there, know that it's not a floating dock but a fix pier type thing. you need to take a ladder off the boat to the boardwalk area. VERY CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! Helpful staff especially with docking which was tricky to do. Some folks on other boats were swimming in the harbor I'm not sure I would do that. Striper came up to the boat at night time. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to weather and weren't able to get a refund and given that MV is a long way from my home port (multi day journey) we won't be able to use the credit this year.

We enjoyed our time in Oak Bluffs on a mooring. To us it is the best place to work on our boat and then relax for the evening. We have been visiting OB Harbor for 30 years now.. The staff is great, the pump out guy is a great guy!
My only suggestion would be to enforce that smaller boats find a mooring/raft in rows 1-7 and raft with boats of similar size.. Row 9 and 10 should be utilized for larger boats that need more swing room when rafted. We will be back to Oak Bluffs for our annual adventure.

I had an awful stay at Oak Bluffs Marina, my slip assignment was behind the parking lot between the public rest room and a liquor store. For two days I witnessed drug deals, foul language, loud music a people so intoxicated they could not stand all by non-boaters. The police showed up twice on my first night and once on my second night, but the issues still persisted. My shore power was turned off twice while I was away from the boat and the rest rooms were filthy and in disrepair, The town of Oak Bluffs should get in front of this issue.

Oak Bluffs harbor is always happening on a great weather weekend. The slips are full and the moorings are packed. We didn't have much engagement with the dock staff, but we did see them helping others with electrical cords and catching lines. Be sure to visit Winston's Cafe at the end of corner on the harbor. They have the best coffee, breakfast sandwiches and subs.
by Wayne D. - Verified user on Jul 11, 2022
We have stayed there many times (30 plus) and love the area. We showed the area to two new boaters who travelled with us. Unfortunately, this time we had a bad experience with an extremely loud, drunk bunch that felt it OK to blast music from 6PM through 1AM, despite many boaters complaining. They turned it up and partied a few boats over. The unattended boat with music at Max volume was next to us and it was so loud, we could not talk to each other. We had to pack up the kids (2 yo and 5 yo) and get away from the noise. The marina must take steps to control this as I was surprised to see it allowed.
Most boaters have heard of the rough reputation here but we had not personally experienced any issues and convinced our guests that they would love it. The other marinas on the Island understand the importance of controlling this undesirable activity while allowing everyone to have their fun.
We will not be returning until an obvious change in management is in place.

I enjoy Oak Bluffs, but staying in a slip is always a bit frustrating. The slip and marina support was great as always and I was supported with a last minute pump out as well. My only complaint is the lack of marina bathrooms and showers. The marina bathroom is open to the public and a shower costs $3 for 7 minutes. In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal, but for the slip prices clean free facilities is expected. In addition, the shower is tokens, not change and it can only be purchased with cash. When cash is used, five dollar bill for example, the boater receives 2 dollars in quarters in return. These quarters cannot be used to purchase additional tokens. So if you have not more dollar bills your family better be good with a 2 minute shared timed shower. In the end, OB please make the shower process easier for the boater.

My wife and I love going to Oak Bluffs Marina and will continue to do so. However, the showers are in need of repair. In the men and women's room at least one shower is not working and the token machine is a pain. It only gives quarters in change but doesn't accept quarters for tokens and the shower coin timer didn't work once the token was put in. The marina wifi was non existent. Other than that. The marina is very clean. The staff is the best. They went out of there way to help every time they could. Its a great place to stay and I will again. As a side note, I'd be willing to pay an extra dollar at the showers if it went to fixing them up.

Well protected harbor. Only sailboat on the back pier, yet felt welcomed...like a curiosity to power boaters, well assisted in our clumsy approach, tied in by marina staff who made fancy rope designs out of our dock lines.

When we got to the slip they were waiting and helped guide us in. Slips are a tight squeeze. No finger docks. You tie up to pilings. Have to climb ladder up to dock. But all worth it for a great location !! Harbor Master will send Pump out boat for boatside pump out. Fuel Dock easily accessible and great service all around.

July 2020 trip. Great spot! Plenty to do within walking distance. Dock hands greeted us upon arrival and helped with tie up. Small market just a short walk away. Friendly neighbors docked on both sides. Bathrooms were clean. Back Door Donuts just down the street. Already booked again for 2021!

Government run marina. We have been using this marina over 40 years and not much has changed. The Town of Oak Bluffs is only interested in the revenue from the marina. The town closes the shower/head facilities after hours. Clean harbor? We did enjoy Oak Bluffs in spite of the marina facilities. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Wake up Oak Bluffs.

Helpful and responsive staff.
Close to town - walking distance to shops and restaurants
Bathroom hours 7am - 9pm and closed early one of the nights we visited
Shower $3 for 8 min. 2 of 3 stalls in ladies room not working. Lost a couple shower tokens figuring that out. No call back from the folks after we called the feedback number on the token machine.
Bathrooms dumpy like a gas station.
Our slip was out of range for wifi. Multiple devices could not pick it up

Dock hands very helpful
Electric hookup easy and had full amps and volts
Very responsive when called upon entering harbor
Not much else in amenities. Bathroom and shower are public, $3 for shower but very clean
Then again you are in thick of the action in Oak Bluffs
Be wary of other traffic on entering the small harbor: ferries, jet Skis, kayaks, dinghies

We arrived to more than half the slips completely empty yet they managed to assign us to one that didn't have shore power. The slip itself was very small for our boat's beam and length. The wifi is absolutely terrible. For the price of the stay for such sparse amenities I'd prefer to have gotten a mooring.

Helpful attendant, easy trip to the slip, and super easy to talk off the boat and head just about anywhere. We were lucky and had great slipmates; i could see though that we could have easily ended up with partiers next to us and our small kids would have been impacted. Not an issue with the slips per se, but rather Oak Bluffs seems to attract a more boisterous crowd. We will still go back!

Not sure if just the week we chose, the slip we were given or if OB is on a massive decline!?! We have had multiple issues with electrical and actually caught someone messing with it one night in the middle of the night. There is an oil slick from someone’s boat that is just lingering. We were right outside the public bathroom and the bus stop which meant we saw a lot of shady things I wish we hadn’t. The most alarming was the shady people who would hang out on the benches and scope out the boats. I actually caught someone trying to climb down on to another boat which I knew was not his. We also saw people over in the park across the way doing drugs right in the open.
i would recommend an alternative location ...we will be staying in Edgartown next time.

Wonderful oceanfront golfing at Farm Neck Golf Course less than two miles away, can bike or take short Uber or cab ride if you want to explore other parts of the Island too! Bike rental and/or jeep rentals located directly across the street and both the Hy-Line Hyannis and Island Queen Falmouth ferries dock right there for any visiting family or friends. Self serve laundromat across the street that also offers wash and fold service and as an added plus found the WiFi to be very good this year!! Great staff and great place for lots of boating fun, would highly recommend for all!

This marina gets by on great location alone, and they must know it. Bathhouse is horrid— pay for showers via tokens, only two stalls (prepare to wait), and closes overnight (here is simply no reason they can not install doors with key card access for guests rather than a barn-style padlock to keep everyone out overnight).
by Mike M. - Verified user on Aug 14, 2019
Marina staff very helpful. Slip was available on time and as advertised. Power and water good. The shower facility is another matter. It was filthy and despite paying $3 for a shower the water was cold. No hot water at any sink faucets either. Although I am a fan of going green and having solar hot water, on rainy days you need to augment, especially if charging money over the price of a dock slip.

Overall a really fun time at OB Marina! We had a great slip (#20) for people-watching. It was convenient to everything: restaurants & bars, a little grocery store, and all the Circuit Ave. shopping. You have to back into the slip so be prepared for that kind of tie-up. A dockhand was waiting to help us get in. It’s a fun vibe, friendly neighbors. We did not have any issue with noise late at night.

Love going to the island but i really wish that the bathhouse had some sort of after hours key code access for boaters staying overnight. Additionally my slip for the weekend was missing a top step so it was extremely difficult for myself and my guests to get on/off my boat from the topmost step to concrete sidewalk surface. In my observations i had the only ladder with this issue which is discouraging and/or just bad luck.

I love Oak Bluffs and the marina, support is 5. The boaters restrooms are terrible. Shower temperature totally not acceptable, from Luke warm to freezing. Water from all shower stalls drain into one central drain. This is disgusting! My wife went into the ladies area yesterday. Conditions were sickly, excrement from one toilet running all over the floor, She had to leave immediately before she threw up! This has been going on for years! I will try this marina one more time. If conditions are not corrected My boat and all my friends with boats will give It up and go elsewhere.

Marina services and location in the heart of Oak Bluffs are excellent. However, the otherwise fully enclosed harbor has a channel exposed to ENE winds which can cause breaking waves in the entrance which rock boats on both slips and moorings... and we got a strong Nor’Easter which did just that!

Friendly and accommodating staff. An employee was waiting for us at our slip and helped with check-in and power. Showers, bathroom and trash were somewhat conveniently located, however, the showers are maintained by the Harbormaster. As such, they are open to the public, never have hot water and the token machine is frequently broken. No cleats on slip #1, which floods at high tide and becomes slippery. Most dockage is simply a pole for tie off - very tight spaces. If you want to be close to the public and shops at Oak Bluff’s, and we did, the overall location is great.

I did not realize hourly docking was still available, since DOCKWA did not offer it. So, I spent $83+ dollars for 6 hours in a slip, instead of paying the hourly rate. I asked at Harbormaster's office if they would consider giving me a break and a future credit, not a refund, and they said no. My mistake for using Dockwa and not contacting the Harbormasters office directly. I was trying to "follow the new rules", and I was gouged for 6 hours of slip use. Not happy...

Nice protected harbor. Excellent location with lots to do right off the boat, and only a short walk to bus stops that can take you anywhere on the island. Night life near the marina is excellent. The marina and harbor Master was accommodating when we wanted to put in our boat on a mooring for a storm. Taking stars off though, for lack of a true dock system (Pilings and a rusty wall don't make the best home for a boat) and sub-par help when we first arrived.

This was our second visit to Oak Bluffs-
The town is beautiful with great restaurants and shopping- a great town to walk. We reserved our Seawell slip thru Dockwa, incredibly easy!
5 stars for Dockwa! Couple of things to be aware of, the Seawell can be a very busy place- loud and not a lot of privacy. However, restaurants and bars only steps away. The (public) restrooms and showers were dirty- no hot water and shower stalls in terrible shape- Andy only open from 8 am to 6 pm.
We stayed on slips because we have a dog- and being able to walk him anytime was a real plus. If you're of the party set- this is a great place- and I guess a lukewarm shower will wake you up after a rough night.
by BRUCE S. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2017
The dock hands were right there to help us in and connect up our power . It's a tight fit between the pilings at OB. Good kids.
The fuel dock is small allowing only one , maybe 2 boats. This lengthens the fueling process. Staying in line is a problem and further complicated by ferry traffic in and out of the harbor. It can get scary , especially when you're waiting in line right where the ferry docks.
The boaters showers , in a word ... disgusting.
Overall , the experience of OB outweighs the shortfalls. Nothing like being "On the Wall " at OB.

The maina is centrally located in Oak Bluffs. A short walk will get you to the bus stop where you can take the bus to Vinyard Haven, Edgartown, or any place else on the island. If coming with dogs have good means by which to get them off the boat as you are stern into a fixed dock with about a 3' tide. We needed a 6' ramp. The bathrooms looked okayish but we hardly used them.
Once off the boat Martha's Vineyard is a very nice eclectic place and will please most people in one way or another.

Marina itself is not bad but you are at a public bulkhead. If you don't have privacy issues you'll be fine but be prepared for lots of awkward stares. The flip side of this is that you are a stones throw from everything here. You don't see many staff but they are responsive when called on.

Its the Vineyard.. Marina was right in town and was a pleasant area to be in. Lots to do steps from the boat.

Great as always - and new addition of fuel dock is wonderful - but I fueled in Vineyard Haven because I didn't read your updated website - my bad!

Horrid experience w the boat next to us blasting radio at 2 and 3 in the morning--all drunk men--we had 4 kids on board -- nobody to call to do anything about it

Fun environment with many bars/ restaurants on the waterfront. Reminiscent of Red Hook in the USVI.
Dock staff lacking in any interest in helping clients in an unusual docking situation. Also bathroom/ shower access neeeds to improve.

The slip I was assigned was too narrow for my boat. The rub rails on both sides actually pried the pilings apart to get in. The public bathrooms were we were told to use were dirty and locked at 9:30 PM ! The town of Oak Bluffs is beautiful, lots off nice restaurants & shopping, unfortunately I will never stay there again because of the poor facilities.

As usual the location is amazing, but the WiFi never worked on multiple devices, the ladders used when coming off the boats are loose and broken and the bathrooms are just dirty public bathrooms. Also being woken up one night to kids on the back of my boat looking in my cooler for beer makes me wonder why there is no security....a basic business where there is no money being put back in to improve anything.

Nice harbor with friendly staff. Very convenient to Oak Bluff restaurants. Will come again.

Booked many weeks in advance and requested to be next to a friend only to be denied multiple times, as they were sold out. There were many open slips over three days next to me. Found a local climbing down from above ladies room in the public marina bathroom, reported that to police!. Had my tender borrowed/stolen two years ago and got it back two weeks later. Beginning to wonder if this is a place I want to re-visit. Still managed to have a good time.

Stayed Thursday and Friday nights along the wall. Very noisy and the late night (bar crowd) is disrespectful to boat owners property. Bathroom facilities are town run and not kept up. Town facility shower $3 for 7 minutes and you might have hot water, Summercamp Hotel has showers available but $10 for 10 minutes...even though the town was nice, it wasn't my favorite place to visit.

Arrived on a very busy, crowded Sunday. Boats were rafted 4 deep in the mooring field. We took slip number 17 which is all the way around the cement bulkhead and wlakway from the ferry docks and waterfront bars/restaurants. Slip numbers 55-70 are closer to the busy waterfront. 1-25 are away from that and close to restrooms and a small market with the largest collection of wine that I have ever seen in a while. Very nice in a SW wind but close to foot and car traffic.
Moorings are available (both day and overnight) in the middle of the very protected basin and their is a launch service on Ch. 77. The whole basin quieted down when all the Sunday day trippers left their moorings. Lots of restaurants, bars, kiddie activities, and people in the summer. A nice stop. One highight was watching the night time paddleboard lesson in the basin with underwater-lighted paddle boards that came out once the Pirate Ship tour quit for the day!

We were traveling with 2 other parties and they did not even try to accommodate getting us side by side, though there many open slips. The dockhand was useless and the gas dockhand was even worse. It's a great location but just don't expect any assistance.

The marina staff was very attentive, showers and restrooms clean and night life was great! Highly recommend tnis!
