Nantucket is wonderful after Labor Day. Got an excellent mooring right outside the town docks entry to the dinghy dock. Very friendly help finding our mooring from the work boat gentleman. Town should fix up its bathrooms. The public bathrooms are good in the boat basin though. Dinghy dock is packed. Bring a long dock line. Overall a delightful stay.

The staff were really friendly and helpful and we wanted to extend our reservation. Easy ride to the dinghy dock from our assigned mooring. Definitely bring a long line for the dinghy since the dock gets crowded. Bathrooms at the town pier could be improved, we opted to walk over to the public restrooms at the boat basin pier to use the showers there instead (much cleaner/newer and an easy walk).

The people at Nantucket Moorings are always SO helpful! We were sorry to see Lee retire, but with Melissa and Julie at the helm, things continue to be so smooth and professional--they are both very communicative and willing to accommodate us and work with us in the height of an incredibly busy season. We are also instantly guided to our mooring, even asked if we need some ice-- always stellar service!! They are the most active company we experience on our New England sails, but they have it down to a science--incredibly professional, organized, understanding, friendly and courteous. We look forward to staying with them every year. Thank You Nantucket Moorings!! See you next season!!

We have been visiting for the past 12 years. We love the island and especially the beautiful harbor. Nantucket moorings is a well run business and we have appreciated their service. We plan to continue making plans to visit Nantucket every summer. I was surprised this year by the shear increased number of dinghies at the dinghy dock. Edgartown harbormaster writes on their Dockwa site that they recommend at least a 15 foot line for a tie up at the dock due the large number of dinghies in Edgartown. I recommend amending your Dockwa information to include a similar statement just to give boaters a heads up. Fortunately, the attentive launch service in the harbor neutralizes the overflow of the dinghies. We had a to order a part this year, had it sent to the office and they delivered it to our mooring. The staff I spoke to at Nantucket moorings were always pleasant and accommodating. We look forward to returning next summer.
by Daren A. on Aug 24, 2023
By virtue of its location, and it’s being the only game in town for moorings, there is no way to avoid Nantucket Moorings. Their booking process is efficient. The staff are friendly, and the mooring top quality. Most importantly it secures you access to Nantucket, one of the best sailing destinations on the East Coast. The biggest downside is the dinghy dock and the nearby public facilities. While they appear to have added dinghy dock space, it remains woefully inadequate, leaving one to tie a long line and climb over other dinghies. This made our trips in to land with a dog very challenging. Secondly, the town bathrooms and showers are a true horror. Dirty, run down, and inadequate. For an island as posh as Nantucket they are disgraceful. There are facilities available at the boat basin which are nicer, but those most proximate to the dock are really terrible. High price, no other options, and foul facilities are the cost of getting to Nantucket.
by Chris W. on Aug 23, 2023
Just the absolute best! Cannot say enough good things about the staff and mooring field. Friendly, highly accommodating and an overall GREAT stay on the mooring. We visit Nantucket every year and its always the same positive experience. Will definitely return next year! Thank you!

Well situated and well maintained mooring field in one of the best boating locations on the NE coast. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. Even went so far as to deliver a package out to the boat.
Dinghy dock is no treat but did notice a new looking floating dock next to the pier. However, It’s no worse than others in prime locations at high season. Town showers are super clean and plenty of hot water
by mary m. - Verified user on Aug 14, 2023
We were told our mooring number was L1 we were delayed getting to the Island. We pre paid for this mooring so it should have been the one we were originally given. When we called in they changed it to E6 then they had us move to P9 then they a guy came by & said it was his mooring so we had to move it back to E6 .... There is no emergency call number if you are having issues they are just plain closed good luck on who is telling the truth about. mooring assignments....

Great location and great mooring. Probably the best maintained rental mooring I’ve ever picked up. Harbor master and staff are very helpful and friendly. The Town dingy dock is completely undersized for the anchorage that it serves. Boats are rafted 3 deep which is a safety concern. Town restrooms and showers are less than desirable. The staff do their best to keep them clean, but then again with the size of the mooring field they service it is a difficult task at best. Still a beautiful and comfortable anchorage.
by Neil R. on Aug 09, 2023
Always friendly and helpful. Moorings are well maintained with adequate scope and ample room between boats. One of the better mooring fields around. I am always welcomed and thanked for staying with Nantucket Moorings. And of course Nantucket is a great island to visit.

The moorings and operation run by Nantucket Moorings couldn’t be better. They accommodated 4 sailboats, part of the Raft Up Crew (RUC) over a busy 3 day weekend this summer. The moorings are extremely well maintained, organized and offer plenty of room. In addition the mooring boat is available during the day to guide you to the mooring if needed. Moorings are well situated to watch all the comings and going’s on the harbor and to dinghy ashore. They use Dockwa which also streamlines the reservation process allowing them to be booked in advance. They also recently started offering some great merchandise and swag to bring the memories back home with us!
Thanks to all at Nantucket Moorings and can’t wait to be back next summer! S/V Classy Lassy and the RUC!

The mooring and the mooring company were great. BIG dissatisfier was the town dinghy dock. It’s loaded with resident large Whalers, many with motors up (exposing sharp propellers) and grass growing on bottoms. Every time we went in, we had to shove through two rows of “dinghies,” or crawl over two or three rows. It got so bad we sometimes took the very good launch, but they are $8 per person per trip, plus tips.
by Harvey R. on Jul 28, 2023
Always a pleasure to stay. This trip our fuel gauge failed on our dinghy and we ran out of fuel some distance away. The team came to our rescue and dragged us back to the mother ship. Fantastic service as usual.
by Robert C. - Verified user on Jul 27, 2023
Wonderful visit. The harbor is spectacular and the mooring field is exceptionally well organized. It was an easy ride to the town pier in the tender and everyone worked well together to ensure access for others to tie up a tender and visit town. Convenient grocery within walking distance for provisions. We will continue to make Nantucket Moorings a key destination in our summer cruising schedule. Always a great visit.

The dinghy dock is by far the worst we’ve ever seen. The harbormaster response is “ we know”. But that doesn’t do anything to help. At least 75% of the dinghies have the motors up and r there permanently. There is NO ROOM other than tying up and crawling over two to three boats. Fiasco is the only word that describes this mess. We’re never coming back because of it

Two issues the dock for tenders is out of control. Yesterday a 3 engine center console came through the mooring field going about 20 knots pulling large wake. Dishes went flying. The harbor master is rarely out on the water. They need to give tickets so the word gets out. Very different from Block Island, their harbor master keeps people in check.

Staff and boat boys were helpful, informative, and professional, however given the high price of the mooring, available onshore facilities were poor or a long walk.

Office staff very pleasant and accommodated us another day due to bad weather; however, some confusion with our reservation upon arrival (which is always a little stressful). Good mooring pick up and clean line. The bathrooms and showers at the Harbor department were very disappointing for such an upscale location and $75 mooring fee. Lots of signage reminding us to “ help keep it clean” but seriously seemed old and outdated. Short walk from the dinghy dock to town … watch the traffic! Unforgiving.
by Andy s. - Verified user on Jun 23, 2023
The mooring stick was broken resulting in damage to our boat.. and when pointed out they said that they knew that. There was many other moorings available to give us but instead gave us the broken one. The launch driver was great and very prompt. Also the dingy dock was loaded with boats that were not legal way too long so it was impossible to find a spot we actually had to tie onto another boat. They should monitor this more closely as they advertise free dingy dock with the mooring price.

Good island to visit! I spent 25 summers on Nantucket through 2013, now come back every other year for a short visit.
It can be a little intimidating to get a reservation as I suspect anxious boaters snap up every reservation available once booking opens in the spring. When I tried one month in advance, there were no moorings available for a 5 day stay arriving Monday, departing Friday.
I just stayed in touch with the staff, and got myself on a waitlist. Sure enough, a slot opened up about three days before we arrived, and indeed there were plenty of empty moorings around us (not sure if transient moorings, or locally assigned moorings that were not in use.)
On arrival, a work boat met us in the channel, guided us through a crowded mooring field and handed up the lines so that we didn't have to go fishing with a pole.
Launch service runs 8AM-midnight, or you can dinghy in. Fuel and pump out service available on the fuel dock, water service available on the "town" dock.
We elected to check-in to a hotel for 4 days, but sleeping on the mooring would have been fine - amazing views and no noise issues.

The team on the harbor is very helpful and really keeps an eye out for me and all their customers, always at the ready if anything is amiss.
Thank you to all at NM,
GALAVANT and her skipper.

Have stayed every year for many years at Nantucket Moorings, and Leigh and the on-water staff are the best! Very pleasant and easy to work with. Great views from the moorings which are easy to navigate. Thanks also to Steve for (multiple) water deliveries. Can't wait to go back!

Great staff! We really appreciated their attentiveness and flexibility. We got a late start on the day of checkin. They preemptively called to confirm our plans and pass on our assignment. On departure, they allowed us to stay a few extra hours on the mooring to allow a better weather window for our transit. Great place!

Great experience at Nantucket Mooring. Helpful staff and very easy to locate moorings. Beautiful location just outside the boat basin. Convenient options with launch service or town dinghy dock. Excellent communication with the marina staff. We enjoyed our experience and thank the staff for their great support. Our third trip this summer - great crew and service.
We returned mid June 2022 for another wonderful weekend on Nantucket. As always, the team did a great job, easy to find the mooring location - and great options for a tender or using the Harbor Launch. A+

There were 2 issues. The first mooring we were assigned to was still occupied. The second mooring had the lines all twisted underneath the ball.y husband hurt his shoulder trying to pull it up. The man on the service boat gave us no assistance. He said he had 2 other boats that he had to bring to their moorings. He never returned to find out if we were ok
We were then assigned a 3 rd mooring. I would say we would only say 3 stars.

Nantucket Moorings' mooring buoys were large and well labeled. On arrival, a Nantucket Moorings dockmaster met us by boat, led us to our mooring buoy & stood by while we, awkwardly with our limited mooring experience, picked up the mooring. Call Nantucket Moorings on VHF 68 as you pass Brant Point light entering the Harbor, and they will meet you. After we were moored, the dockmaster came alongside and pointed the way to the Town Pier and gave us a couple of tips on local restaurants, etc.
The mooring buoy had two pennants, one with a pick-up buoy with a mast. All components were in good shape. Each pennant was heavy (1-inch?) floating (polypropylene?) line and had a large eye (18 inches?). There being two pennants, and we were able to belay one each to our port & starboard bow cleats. (Most of our mooring experience has been in the Exuma Land and Sea Park in the Bahamas, where moorings typically have no pick-up buoy or mast and only a single pennant, through which one must feed a dock line belayed to bow cleats--sometimes a painful process.)
Nantucket Moorings does not provide shore-side services, but in the Harbor there is a Town Pier with a dinghy dock (usually pretty crowded), trash receptacles, bathrooms & showers. The Town Pier also offers short-term docking for larger vessels at floating docks, for drop-offs & pick-ups. We were told that one may get free water there, but we didn't do so.
Although we put our dinghy in the water, we used Nantucket Harbor Launch service for most of our trips between boat & shore ($6 per person each way). The Launch service runs 7AM to midnight in summer. We were picked every time within 10-15 minutes of calling for a pick-up (also VHF68). The ride to shore takes about 5 minutes, but the Launch may stop to pick up other people on the way. The Launch service's shore-side landing is on Straight Wharf, pretty much in the center of the waterfront area. (The Town Pier is a quarter of a mile farther south.) To return to your boat, just go to the landing; a Launch will show up in a few minutes.
A sign in the Launch said that they will provide fresh-water wash-down service at one's mooring. We were told that the Launch service will also deliver ice. We didn't try either of these services & don't know their cost.
There are very few slips available in Nantucket in summer. Moorings are also scarce but seem to be more available than slips. When we were there, a mooring was the only available option. We cruise in a power boat and prefer to be secured to a pier with shore power & water. Thus, the prospect of taking a mooring was daunting. Nantucket Moorings made the experience as painless as possible.

Lovely harbor, of course! Good double pennants on moorings. Adequate dinghy dock. Very nice harbormaster! Only criticism is that the launch drivers drive at excessive speed in the mooring field.

Very helpful service - they knew who i was and where my reservation was and gave great directions to get there. Had I wanted it, they were willing to escort me. We had a minor issue - the prior renter hadn't vacated yet and we had to circle while waiting; a little challenging in a 46' boat with a lot of traffic. We weren't too from the fuel or dinghy dock, nor from the beaches.
Now for the locale: in one week we went to Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, and Nantucket. ACK was the best! Easy, clean beaches to go to in the harbor or right outside, great shopping, yet not too pretentious. Great restaurants.

Cancellation policy if harsh but clearly stated. Refused to allow a different boat to use reservation even though it was allowed in the past. Manager refused to budge and said they had never done it in the past. I offered to forward them proof that it had but they refused to respond to any more messages.
Never again. Just remember if you make a reservation and don't go or try to modify it they will pretty much deny even the smallest change and then sell the mooring for the summer rate. Keeping most of your money too.

Would not stay again unless there is no choice: we were initially offered a mooring beside the fuel and pump-out stations and the... pump-out material is literally floating around (our friends stayed there for two days and observed the same both days). After some arguing I was offered another, remote, mooring. Launch service is insanely expensive: $6 per person per ride.
by Stephen R. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2020
Great place to stay, as always. Staff is friendly and helpful. We had to depart early for a threatened tropical storm, where the moorings must be vacated. They refunded unused time, for a weather departure. The town dinghy dock gets more crowded every year and there is ample room to expand. Needs to be done.

TOO TIGHT. was asked to move twice in two days. moved once. Aside from that, Nantucket was generally rude and their mask law while walking outdoors was insane. You can sit 4 feet from someone in a restaurant with no mask but God forbid you want to walk down the street alone some arrogant 'old fart' will approach you to yell about the stupid mask. Happened three times. WILL NEVER GO BACK. Bad experience started with the mooring and ended when we left early.

No problems once there, but when we arrived on 8/24 they said we had no reservation. But they found us a mooring and we had a good stay.
Then on 8/31, they called us to ask if we were going to keep our mooring reservation for that day. Explained that the reservation had been for the prior week (I have the PDF receipt that confirms the date), and they had no explanation for why this had happened. Do not know whether the problem was at Nantucket Moorings or at Dockwa.

On another note, we are finding that having an account with Dockwa is somewhat akin to having a private membership. Reservations are a breeze. Thanks so much.

First time our family of seven have ever stayed on a mooring. Let alone for 4 days! Nantucket is expensive! But, there are so many great restaurants to please any palate. Being on a boat, we tend to travel by foot. So, we spent too much time in the center. A rainy day island tour from Ana's Tours provided a good history and sights. We had rain or clouds for 2 days, but day 3 allowed us a beach day. Best Beach - Surfside. Best party venue - Ciscos brewery/distillery/winery!

Late in the season, Nantucket Moorings isn't staffed on weekends, but the nightly rate is still high. The dinghy tie-up at the Harbormaster's town dock is still very crowded, and the restrooms are often locked. We had to call the town police to get the Harbormaster to come unlock the (old and poorly maintained) restrooms, or take the hike to the (new and well-maintained) public restrooms at Nantucket Boat Basin.

There is no nicer or more economical way to visit Nantucket than by mooring in the harbor. The mooring field is spacious and well organized. The view of the wharves and mega-yachts is magnificent, especially at night. My arrival was aided by very friendly and helpful Nantucket Moorings staff.
My only criticism is that the shower facilities are deplorable. Besides being very worn they were the filthiest I’ve encountered in my years of cruising. The second evening that I showered there I made sure to bring my flip-flops. For $60 a night we cruisers deserve better facilities. I hope that there is renovation and a new cleaning staff before my next visit.

Shower, toilets etc was at a level that had us disgusted. When calling for action, Nantucket Moorings said it is not there responsibility and that "what should we expect in August." "We should be so lucky to be in Nantucket" - kind of like - " How dare you call to complain." Arrogance was at a level that we decided to leave early.

The staff of Nantucket Moorings were helpful and responsive. As we came into the harbor, they met us and directed us to our mooring, making sure we had no difficulties picking it up and then chatting with info about the launch and other services.
The harbor was full but still they were able to accommodate us coming in a day early. The only downside was that the harbor had a fair amount of chop, which is more the fault of nature and geography than the staff, but still, we did find sleeping difficult with the banging and clattering of our, and neighboring boats rocking so much.

Sorry, I can’t recall his name, but the guy who showed us to our mooring was super nice and answered our questions. The condition of the mooring ball and painters were best we’ve ever seen. Our stay would have been better if we received a map of town, pamphlets, etc. when we picked up the mooring ball. The showers and bathrooms reminded me of ones at a well worn out public camp for kids... not what you’d expect when you pay so much for a mooring... $148 for one night? That was not the advertised Dockwa price, and we were not in the 2 night minimum time frame.

Our stay in Nantucket was delightful on the whole. Our mooring location, E5, however, wasn't ideal. The tide/wind conflict meant that about half the time we and the boats around us were bumping up against our mooring balls. There was an old wooden Hinckley next to us whose mooring ball would squeak loader than an Osprey in these circumstances. This part of the mooring field also seemed to be heavily trafficked by small motor boats and RIB's traveling over 5 knots and making wake. I'd hope for a mooring further up next time?
The new guys running the launch (Waypoint Marine) seem happier than the old guys....

Promptly directed to our mooring. Launch service ashore is good. The cost might catch some off guard although the price is not unfair at $5 per person per trip.
Supplementary information about launch service and dinghy docks is necessary.
