We had a great stay, the Harbor Master was friendly and helpful. There is no launch service but plenty of places to pull your skiff up. There were several waterfront restaurants. Only cons, no breakfast/coffee places close and I would not swim in that water.

The Fall River Harbor Master, his crew and museum folks were very helpful. Our cruising group felt welcome and we all had a memorable time. We will return to explore more about the history and growing marina activities.

Really unique experience! I remember staying aboard the battleship as a kid, but my husband had never visited, so I figured what better way than by water? The harbormaster manages the moorings, and he couldn't be nicer. He and the gentleman who maintains the moorings for him were incredibly welcoming and let us know where to go (and where not to). Fall River's waterfront seems to be making a comeback, and the area around the battleship is totally fine. It's a bit noisy with the Braga Bridge and Rte195 right there, and if you're into places with lots of amenities, Battleship Cove probably isn't for you since you just get the mooring and access to the dinghy dock. However, it's really cool to spend the night with just a few other boats and a battleship and I definitely recommend a visit!
Thank you very much for your kind commments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your next visit. We are trying very hard to make sure that boaters have a very pleasant stay when they visit Fall River. In the near future our "City Pier" facility will begin construction and we will offer many new amenities (showers, water, etc.). Thanks again, and we hope to see you soon.

What a terrific place to stay! Our mooring was protected in the harbor behind a battleship. Many restaraunts nearby in addition to having a carosel and museum right at the dinghy dock. The harbormaster, Bob Smith, could not do enough to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. Kudos to Bob, we had a great weekend with friends and will certainly recommend, battle ship cove as a destination to our boating community.

Never before in any marina or public marine facility have we been treated so nicely, and cared for so well.. Bob Smith of Fall River Harbormaster was the most accommodating any boater could ask for. The moorings are within a few hundred feet of the beautiful And majestic Battleship Cove, with a free dinghy dock and incredible restaurants only feet away. The Fall River waterfront is fast becoming a boaters oasis... and with Harbormasters like Fall River's it's a no brainer that will be back many more times. We spent the night and unfortunately had dead batteries the next morning- I called the Harbormaster and within minutes he was there to jump us and get us going again.
And did so with a smile.
Kudos to them for your their unsurpassed service and hospitality.
