Perfect stay. First time I have stayed in Port Clyde and I have cruised the coast for 35 years. My mistake....this is a great place to visit and stay.

Never found #13 that was assigned to me and even the attendant that I called on ch 09 didn’t even know either.

So many moorings available, easy paddle into the General Store to resupply and walk through town. Wifi available at the store. Received several recommendations in town and ended up walking to the lighthouse and having dinner at the Dip Net!

We came in during a hard rain and blow. Radioed and fellow who answered could not give any reference point other to mooring other than “white ball with green toggle” Found one and was good solid mooring held on 35kt blow. Next day we inquired about the fuel dock, dinghy tie ups, and fuel price. They said they were in the store and didn’t know. Good moorings, beautiful town, need to improve communication

Easy well maintained mooring

Great stop. Nice walk. Great ice cream. Great general store. We’ll be back. Moorings are significantly improved. The lad working the dock might want to wear something that indicates he works there.

One of favorite spots to get a mooring. Safe harbor, delicious dockside restaurant, beautiful walks and friendly people!

by Nate A. - Verified user on Aug 19, 2023
Lovely spot, great walk to the light house but the General Store while quaint charges for everything. 5$ for garbage(should be included), $5 for showers…no thanks and two mediocre omelets for $36….not again.

by James D. - Verified user on Aug 17, 2023
Lot of rolling during the night. Otherwise, good service and good amenities

by Tina F. - Verified user on Aug 16, 2023
Wonderful place! Provisions and scenery were terrific.

by Michael F. - Verified user on Aug 15, 2023
Got me a close mooring. Always enjoy the store as well

by Sari G. - Verified user on Aug 13, 2023
Everything was easy, the mooring was in good condition, and the harbor was quiet. The launch makes it easy to go to shore. Delicious lobster at both the General Store and DipNet Restaurant. Be sure to visit Village Ice Cream and Bakery. We love staying in Port Clyde.

Roughest night we’ve ever spent on a mooring.

by Gail W. - Verified user on Aug 10, 2023
It is important to keep in mind that this is a working Harbor so lots of boat traffic early and late. A suggestion: The marina moorings do not need two pick up buoys. The flagged buoy is enough and the additional buoy is cumbersome and needless. Store has interesting items, and stretching your legs by walking to the lighthouse is a must.

by Alex H. - Verified user on Aug 10, 2023
Quaint harbor, good mooring, great walk to lighthouse

by Scott B. - Verified user on Aug 09, 2023
Great location - General Store is perfect and welcoming.

Great Port Clyde General Store, well stocked & they start serv

by William D. - Verified user on Aug 07, 2023
When the launch driver took us out to our boat this morning he slammed the old white Whaler into the side of our boat. The sea is glassy calm. We just had our boat all gripped in a beautiful red. The majority of the white paint came off, but there are two large gouges. A really unnessesary, unkind mistake..

Excellent service. Friendly staff. Tulane was fantastic. Thank you.

by Wenda R. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2023
Friendly, accommodating staff. Store has nice mix of useful provisions. Adjoining restaurant is excellent

by Dennis C. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Great place except for Dip Net restaurant. Never can depend on restaurant hours, they change them daily.

by Jay B. - Verified user on Jul 29, 2023
Wonderful service, Chris picked us up right away!

by Barry S. - Verified user on Jul 28, 2023
Always a mystery finding your assigned mooring. Other than the hide and seek it’s a nice place to visit.

by Jeffrey p. - Verified user on Jul 27, 2023
Friendly dock staff. Fun dockside restaurant and general store. Anchorage is rolly and wide open to the Southwest. Ample moorings

by Jeffrey R. - Verified user on Jul 24, 2023
Convenient location…easy to get help when needed…incredible weather. Ended up staying 2 nights

by Dirk L. - Verified user on Jul 24, 2023
Not a friendly place. Lobstermen take pleasure in early morning close encounters.

by Dan S. - Verified user on Jul 21, 2023
Restrictive hours for a summer marina. They close the general store/marina at 7pm which means no restrooms until the next day. The check in bordered on the the depth of a mortgage application, but the worst insult was charging $5 for the disposal of a brown paper bag worth of trash. The anchorage is open to S and SW swells and we were rockin and rollin.

by Amanda M. - Verified user on Jul 20, 2023
Prompt response on VHF, limited cell service, but easy WiFi ashore, general store always seems to have whatever I forget to provision, staff are welcoming and helpful.

by Michael B. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2023
Nice safe mooring location, convenient dock and staff. Reasonable price in a old style Maine working harbor. Easy walk to the Marshall point lighthouse. Run Forest run!

by Thomas W. - Verified user on Jul 06, 2023
Love it, we will definitely be back⚓️

by Gene K. - Verified user on Jul 04, 2023
Easy to find the mooring. The General Store had live lobsters which we purchased and took back to the boat for a fine dinner.

by Hugh T. - Verified user on Jul 02, 2023
Great place to stay. It was a flat harbor at a time when swells and chop were outside. All services available and a great general stire

by Brad C. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2023
Wonderful store/dock staff immediately responsive on ch. 9.

by Pamela H. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2023
Port Clyde was the ideal “port in a storm” for us last week! So well protected from the prevailing winds, with easy access to shore via the town wharf or dinghy dock. The bonus was being able to take the morning boat (Laura B) out to Monhegan on a drizzly day — we explored the island in its more “wild and wooly” ways. The ride back was somewhat rolly due to the seas, but once in the harbor, it was nice and calm. The General Store had the provisions we needed, and just up the street is ice cream.

by Thomas J. - Verified user on Jun 20, 2023
Much better than in the past. They answered the radio, and sent a guy out in a skiff to check on us. The balls are better marked than in the past and pickup lines have been improved.

by bruce m. - Verified user on Jun 15, 2023
Wonderful. Everything you need is right there. People are very helpful and friendly. Clean showers. Easy harbor to get in and out of and of course there is the ferry to Monhegan for a day hike.

by Dennis J. - Verified user on Jun 06, 2023
Great spot - great little town and easy to find the mooring

by Colin W. - Verified user on May 28, 2023
We had a great stay. Listened to sea gulls day and night, light croud aeound the harbor and we had great meal at the restaurant last evening. Water was calm throughout the night. Chris was very helpful and super friendly when tying up to the mooring ball and helping us this morning at the fuel dock.

by Henry R. - Verified user on Oct 11, 2022
Nice little port! Blueberry pie and ice cream delicious! Launch service very accommodating!

by John F. - Verified user on Sep 02, 2022
Oddly over priced. One of the most expensive moorings in Maine + $5 per person to shower + $5 per bag of trash + $2 to fill your water tank. Did not encounter these extra costs anywhere else in a month of cruising Maine. Some of the moorings seem too tightly spaced. Not going back.

by Art D. - Verified user on Aug 22, 2022
Always a very nice salty stop. Nice store and the Dip Net restaurant is good. Ice cream just around the corner

by Brian S. - Verified user on Aug 20, 2022
Some confusion on what mooring We were assigned. Another boat was on the mooring were assigned in the reservation confirmation. We took another mooring and all was fine.

by Peter J. - Verified user on Aug 13, 2022
A favorite place now. Chris was very accommodating, including letting us move to a different mooring when a large commercial vessel on another mooring threatened to hit us when swinging.

by James F. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2022
Wyeth Gallery, Marshall Light House Museum, and Black Harpoon make this a place to stop for.

by JD H. - Verified user on Aug 02, 2022
Booked a mooring months in advance. Arrived could not reach anyone on Channel 9. Called the store, they had no clue what was going on, told us to pick up one of two moorings. Both were occupied, grabbed a small mooring (that could not hold us) my husband ran around for an hour trying to fix “their” problem. Thank god we were part of a group & one of our members who was lighter offered to change moorings. Just a mention we did encounter a small sailboat who did not want to move because it was too rocky, nice👎 This was horrible not sure we will return. Plus for all the upset & running around we did, they still wanted to charge us for trash😳

by Ralph N. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2022
Nice town. Good moorings. There seemed to be a few people who felt their moorings were not suitable, but the angst seemed unnecessary. They do seem to charge extra for everything which seems a little unfriendly. They seem to charge $5.00 extra for Dockwa at least based on the rate on the sigh on the dock.

by Julie R. - Verified user on Jun 17, 2022
Port Clyde country store was a fine mooring field. All moorings allowed for sufficient space. The clerks were efficient and courteous when called to get assignment.

by Woody B. - Verified user on Sep 21, 2021
Wildly overpriced for what you get. When we arrived, hailed to ask how to find our assigned mooring; no response. Called by phone instead; person answering phone didn't know, and there was no one else available. Included launch was not running (it's available 7 days a week, unless it's the dock person's day off, or he's not in). Free restroom in the store was disgustingly dirty; another restroom and shower in the adjacent building cost $5 per use. $2 charge to fill with water at the fuel dock. $5 per bag to drop off garbage. Assuming 2 people on the boat want to shower once a day and use no other services, that's $50/day total. Compare the closest Dockwa-listed marina, Tenants Harbor Boat Yard: $87.50 per day (for our 35-ft boat) includes showers, clean restrooms, trash disposal, water tank fill. And that's for a dock, with helpful staff. Or $30 for a mooring, which includes launch, restrooms, showers, garbage, water. A pity. We've wanted to stay in Port Clyde for a while, and it is a beautiful spot where we had a restful night. But we won't be back.

Good secure mooring and straightforward easy to work with people. Port Clyde is cool. We’ll be back, Thanks, Aleutia Nation

by Jim S. - Verified user on Sep 01, 2021
OK, but the advertised launch service wasn’t available on the day we arrived, though it was on the following day.

by Bill H. - Verified user on Aug 26, 2021
Nice spot, nice restaurant, only problem was curtailed hours of store hours and no marina staff, I am sure due to current labor conditions.

by Kevin C. - Verified user on Aug 19, 2021
$40 is at the high end of ME moorings, but then they charge $5 additional to bring off a bag of trash and $2 to fill water. Described launch hasn’t run any of the last few times we’ve moored here. Sometimes irregular store hours make restroom/shower access inconvenient.

by jeff w. - Verified user on Aug 16, 2021
No one responded to the VHF on our arrival at 3:00 PM. No one answered the phone. No way for incoming boats to get mooring assignments. Restaurant was very understaffed with a very limited menu. Beautiful location but we did not receive the usual quality service.

by Glen L. - Verified user on Aug 11, 2021
The mooring was great but we called and asked about getting fuel and they told us to come into the fuel dock, but when we did, we were then told that the fuel pump was not working.

by Robert M. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2021
Mooring was available and town was adorable, as was the lighthouse & museum. Harbor was mostly commercial fishermen. Lobster boats throw substantial wake with little regard for pleasure boaters starting at 4am, which seems to be the norm in Maine.

by Edward K. - Verified user on Jul 29, 2021
I was directed to numbered mooring buoy, but the number was not visible - need to repaint buoy numbers Almost no cell phone signal for me in this harbor

by Steve K. - Verified user on Jul 28, 2021
Great spot, launch service was excellent. Showers are $5, nice clean facilities. Port Clyde is a cool little town to explore!

by Richard A. - Verified user on Jul 27, 2021
The harbor master is a one man show! Great service.

by Wolfgang B. - Verified user on Jul 23, 2021
Good moorings with convenient access to store. Wish the store had more supplies specific to boaters (e.g alcohol for a burner )

by Michael B. - Verified user on Jul 15, 2021
Easy and friendly. Cozy harbor with food and limited supplies.
