Wonderful! Loved our mooring. Easy to pick up and great location. Thanks especially to Leigh for always being so helpful. We will see you next week!

Everyone was very helpful.

Good mooring service

by rabbit on Aug 31, 2020
The team at Nantucket Moorings was awesome and we loved our mooring spot. Launch was great. Town pumpout service could not be easier. Would not change a thing. We can’t wait to be back. Thank you!

by jjpatrick on Aug 29, 2020
Mooring held well in 30 knot winds.

by robburt on Aug 25, 2020
Excellent staff. Very well operated!

by camihampton421 on Aug 25, 2020
The people at Nantucket Moorings are always SO helpful! Beginning with Lee on the phone, who is so willing to accommodate us and work with us in the height of an incredibly busy season--to everyone who guides us out to our mooring, checks up on us, even asking if they can bring us 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!!

by cdpinc on Aug 24, 2020
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.

Nantucket Moorings is great because the people who run the operation provide first class customer service. Thank You!

by babadean86 on Aug 24, 2020
Pilot boat right there to guide you to your mooring without waiting. The crew is absolutely generous and a pleasure for services. Great time we will be back

by salty1960 on Aug 23, 2020
Great stay and great service

by rringer1 on Aug 23, 2020
Very comfortable and staff were very friendly .

by sbarron0724 on Aug 14, 2020
I was there for Hurricane/TS Isaias. The moorings are reportedly 4500lb and I felt very secure. The taco's at the dock were outstanding too.

by rjta1a on Aug 13, 2020
The team is great! Always professional and willing to help out!

by cannedyou on Aug 10, 2020
Helpful staff, nice launch, close to town, all in a well protected harbor.

by jdrinane on Aug 09, 2020
Very nice but launch service too expensive.

by ctsail on Aug 08, 2020
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.

by aroy on Aug 06, 2020
Great besides the $6.00 per person shuttle launch from the boat to land each way.

by vladimirts on Aug 03, 2020
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 sromaine 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.

by craigirish on Aug 01, 2020
Friendly service and great mooring field equipment.

by sailbrandison on Jul 29, 2020
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.

by suasanfaux on Jul 27, 2020
Wonderful time! All marina staff were very helpful and accommodating

by jhockrangers on Jul 26, 2020
Outstanding service

by jjjp on Jul 25, 2020
Great Staff and excellent services. All public areas were spotless.

by battles2a5 on Jul 22, 2020
Perfect as always. Friendly, responsive, quick launch service.

by theriaultms on Jul 19, 2020
Great place to visit!

by kzitzmann on Jul 18, 2020
Beautiful! Great service!

by billberner on Jul 16, 2020
Very nice helpful staff. Pricey but it’s Nantucket. Mooring lines very new Great 3 night stay

by moscaring on Jul 12, 2020
Great mooring on the front

by south567 on Jul 10, 2020
Nantucket moorings was great Met us in the harbor Showed us to out mooring.. etc Great visit

by gilligan2020 on Jul 09, 2020
As always Nantucket Moorings provides excellent service. They Call to confirm that we will be there before 5 when they close. Offering to show us to our mooring as we enter the harbor. Easy to pick up mooring with the attached stick, no boat hooks or threading with your own line. Mooring line barnacle free.

by abperper on Jul 09, 2020
Incredibly friendly and calling before we arrived to let us know when the office closed was very thoughtful.

by dbgarrison on Jul 05, 2020
So easy booking via Dockwa. Mooring grid is clearly laid out and each ball is clearly labeled. Wish every mooring field had pennants & bridles the way they do!

by sasemr on Jul 02, 2020
Great place, great customer service from the moorings

by pobradley on Sep 30, 2019
Great mooring, easy dinghy ride or call the launch to the island

by dcourteau on Sep 04, 2019
Love staying in Nantucket. Nantucket Moorings and Harbor Launch are always willing to help out and are a great crew to deal with.

by warrendwoods on Sep 04, 2019
As I hailed Nantucket Moorings when entering the harbor, they immediately responded with, 'We see here that you have a reservation with us.' I was then escorted directly to my mooring. After, I was briefed in person about the amenities of the mooring field and any questions I had. Great service.

by rov1gh65 on Sep 01, 2019
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.

by saylor on Aug 28, 2019
Cancellation policy is harsh. Requirement of two night minimum and full deposit is forfeited when weather prevents a stay.

by panderson on Aug 26, 2019
Very responsive and helpful service, an organized group that has its act together. Separately run launch service was good.

by dougb on Aug 21, 2019
There was a mistake in our reservation arrival date that was probably our fault and they were so kind to move reservations around to accommodate us even though they were completely full for our arrival dates. it would have been a terrible inconvenience if we were turned away after coming from East Hampton NY. These guys are great!!!!!

by pvgas on Aug 16, 2019
Good clean mooring tackle. Facilities however are pretty disgusting.

by robrav on Aug 16, 2019
Fantastic! Spent ten days on a mooring. Service was great, and the mooring tackle was in tip top shape. My mooring was ready for me and I loved the fact that I was shown to my spot rather than milling around the mooring field looking for it and, when I was having an issue with my rigging, the owners helped me find someone to assist with a fix. Looking forward to coming back next year!

by hjrecla on Aug 11, 2019
Excellent stay! Highly advised.

by dgallagher2 on Aug 08, 2019
Usual great service in 2019 , appreciate the team helping in guiding us onto our mooring on a very breezy afternoon, see you next summer , crew of the CDP

by westieland on Aug 07, 2019
Nantucket Moorings, along with Nantucket Launch Svc runs a first class business. Staff are fun, helpful and respectful. We were able to extend our stay on our primo located mooring with a simple phone call. Such a pleasant change after the former operators. 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. Suzy Moore S/V Silver Girl

by bill.kimbell on Aug 06, 2019
Great service, boat on hand to guide to the mooring.

by cgibbins on Jul 31, 2019
Very nice, staff was friendly and accomadating.

by perryg on Jul 30, 2019
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!

by rjcolston on Jul 26, 2019
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 be back and stay longer next time.

by lindakenberg on Jul 25, 2019
Mooring was solid, office was responsive, launch was helpful, island is very interesting and well worth a visit.

by svliberty on Jul 23, 2019
Leigh was wonderful to work with - she called to confirm arrival time & provided mooring number in case we didn't arrive before the staff left for the day (5pm). Lovely location & launch service was fabulous! The Whaling Museum is a must see!

by owoobly on Jul 21, 2019
Great spot! And wonderful folks managing it!

by vernonb on Jul 18, 2019
Very helpful in leading us to our mooring.

by cblindwall on Jul 13, 2019
Everything was well organized and everyone was so helpful. A great experience.

We felt very inferior. The beautiful people

by bstaymore on Jul 09, 2019
Very reasonable rates. Nice service.

by mittelman on Jul 06, 2019
Nice staff and good Mooring equipment.

by ajfish50 on Jun 29, 2019
nantucket moorings were very friendly and attentive . Great equipment and gear too Couldn’t be happier

by aklong on Sep 28, 2018
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.

by sailormd on Sep 18, 2018
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. Mitch Gilbert, s/v Pleiades

by kstone71 on Sep 05, 2018
Enjoyed it completely Tim ( launch owner operator ) was awesome . Thank you for nice weekend

by johnfwilliamsii on Aug 28, 2018
Warm welcome, great location, beautiful destination

by jrigazio on Aug 27, 2018
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.

by wcaswell on Aug 21, 2018
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.

by tommager on Aug 12, 2018
beautiful harbor, very nice moorings. Launch service is extra cost. Town dinghy dock is always packed, very undersized.

by ahodosh on Aug 12, 2018
Always greeted politely and service is perfect . They make you feel welcome as returning family

by mquintal on Jul 31, 2018
Always a great place to stay!!

by 11nobska on Jul 23, 2018
Nantucket Moorings allows Honda generators on the sterns and multiple barking dogs all night- all at a price 2X the going rate! Two required nights!

by barpotter on Jul 15, 2018
The island is beautiful. The moorings and facilities are excellent. The launch is $10 per person per ride, ridiculous. We used our dinghy to get to town. Would definitely return.

by navigator47 on Jul 15, 2018
Great stay as always. They had the perfect mooring and a Line extension installed to accommodate the high bow of our Nordhavn "NaviGator." Staff was accommodating, attentive, and friendly as always. We will be back.

by cs76737 on Jul 12, 2018
Moorings are perfectly maintained. Booking is well organized, and Nantucket Moorings boat was very helpful in finding the mooring and tying up. Really nice place to stay.

by timhenn123 on Jul 10, 2018
Great place to stay. Brought me directly to my mooring. Made sure we got on OK and then came by later to offer some information on our surroundings and let us know that if we needed anything to give them a call on the radio.

by alacrity43 on Jun 18, 2018
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.

by chowland0413 on Jun 18, 2018
Leigh called to tell us where our mooring was because no one was available to show us to it. She went beyond good customer service even reassigning us a mooring closer to town. We'll rent for a week next year!

by frederickjbertino on May 30, 2018
Stay was great. Helped me put the mooring line on in big wind and always responsive on the radio when I called. Launch guys super great also in the wind and rain. See you again! And thank you.

by augustefortin on Sep 17, 2017
Location is beyond great, staff were super friendly and helpful. There is a pumpout boat and free pumpout and water at the end of the town dock. Supermarket is a 5 minute walk away from the dinghy dock. The only negatives: the dinghy dock was overcrowded (but there is launch service as an alternative) and the restroom facilities at the Harbormaster's office are very overdue for a good cleaning and repair. Despite this we will be back!

by stellina1700 on Sep 06, 2017
Staff were all gracious and accommodating ....can't wait until next season!

by timgollin on Aug 20, 2017
Good stay and prompt attention - launch service provided by someone else at $5 per head each way which ain’t cheap

by fecollins on Aug 18, 2017
Great service, friendly staff.

by vefthimiades on Aug 16, 2017
Very quiet mooring field, but of you want hustle and bustle, short dinghy ride or launch into town can get you to hustle and bustle.

by razar516 on Aug 09, 2017
Great service. Thanks for the great mooring location for Tango on I1!!!

by b350captain on Aug 05, 2017
Professional crew in the office and on the water with excellently maintained moorings at a very reasonable price in Nantucket. Love this harbor - Nantucket Moorings is my #1

by tmorningstar on Jul 28, 2017
Great service!

by mocape on Jul 26, 2017
Mooring was great, staff was friendly and helpful locating the mooring. But the showers & bathrooms were poor and dirty.

by jeffburke2 on Jul 25, 2017
Very accommodating. Was met at entrance to the harbor and escorted to mooring with easy to grab pick-up buoy. Was then greeted alongside the boat with detailed harbor information.

by prorenata on Jul 21, 2017
It's great having the grocery store a short bike ride or walk from the dinghy dock!

by waburpee on Jul 21, 2017
Always top-notch! Prompt and Professional! Strong hawsers with good, long leads.

by sailorjoe on Jul 11, 2017
Mooring staff are all spectacular in their skills and professionalism. The town is a delight and the scenery wonderful. Bring wads of cash and enjoy.

by mandar1n on Jul 10, 2017
1. It was quick, easy and efficient to sign up through Dockwa. BUT, it is very hard to submit this review ! 2. we were given a mooring with a PERFECT location. 3. The harbormaster instantly approved us having 30 minutes of extra time

by rdwmarinas on Jul 09, 2017
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....

by dleccese on Jul 06, 2017
The Nantucket Moorings is a great place to stay. They are very helpful. They cruise the mooring field and make sure you have everything you need. We are already planning to go back.

by oyster655 on Jul 01, 2017
Stern to bow swinging room... only inches to spare. Does not make for calm approach on arrival. And when the wind's up, not so restful nights...

by capekid on Jun 14, 2017
Absolutely brutal cancellation policy. Months in advance we found out our boat wasn't going in had to forfeit entire 3 night fee (which was over 200$)

by normanhmartin on May 29, 2017
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.
