Tucker's Wharf is located perfectly at the center of Marblehead's Old Town which makes it a charming and delightful destination. The Landfall is great for dinner while the Driftwood is a local breakfast favorite. And you can't miss enjoying a spirit at Maddy's Sail Loft. There are plenty of shops and services to amuse and help. Mark and his team are gracious, welcoming, and helpful Harbormasters.

Harbormaster staff were great. Men's shower was filthy. Main issue is a 300% rate increase since the last active captain review with no advertised notice until getting to the dockwa reservation. More a reflection of what I have seen with dockwa and the use of it to justify ridiculous mooring rentals. I will use this site in the future to figure out which harbors to avoid and will gratefully thank the ones that have kept rate increases modest and do not require payment with my thumbs. Some of us still sail to distance ourselves from forced internet interaction.

Surprised and happy to get a virtually short notice reservation. Phone contact was pleasant and upbeat. On arrival, three professional staff made the approach and dockage on a very windy day stress free....made me look good at the helm. The docks are very stable and clean. Lots of interesting harbor boat traffic but the no wake enforcement makes it very comfortable even at busy times. We were right in the heart of historic Marblehead. Need I say more. Will put Marblehead on our cruising itinerary every year!

Great little harbor (jam packed with boats on mooring balls).

Friendly staff and great facilities, including washer and dryer free to use. Only drawback is the price at $5/foot.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the nice review. We include all amenities including power and water on our docks so that is the reasoning behind the price. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!!!

Wonderful stay in Marblehead. The Harbormaster and team set us up with a fantastic mooring that was very comfortable and so close to everything that we didn't even put the motor on our dinghy! We look forward to coming back again!

The Harbormaster was great, very accommodating. It was a little inconvenient not to have a launch service, or showers. Fortunately we where able to finagle something with the help of the harbormaster. We had a nice stay.

I apologize that you were not made aware of our Shower and laundry facilities. We are new to "dockwa" and "marinas.com" and are still navigating our way through. We have recently made the addition of a launch service for our inner harbor moorings only for an additional $25.00 per night. Hopefully all of our growing pains will be done by your next stay. Thank you for the nice review in spite of our shortcomings, it is much appreciated! Terri Office Manager

Arrived late on a Friday night and had no trouble coming in and finding our mooring. Location is tucked away deep in the harbor, so well protected and calm water. Good spacing between moorings.
