The harbor master was super helpful in guiding us to our mooring ball. There is a harbor shuttle included so we were able to walk into tow and get dinner easily.

It was rainy and cold. I originally asked for a mooring off Stage Head but they offered a mooring inner harbor. Quiet peaceful just a great relaxing evening.The Gloucester Harbormaster and staff are wonderful. Great and accommodating launch. Will certainly be back

Enjoyed our stay here. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Launch operators were skilled and timely. I was very impressed with a phone call I received one evening confirming that we were back aboard our boat after a visit to shore! Thanks for making our stay memorable!

Gloucester Harbor and the Gloucester Harbor Masters staff are second to none! The facilities are fantastic. Moorings well marked and located with pickup sticks. I highly recommend all mariners to visit Gloucester! Lots to offer.

Gloucester is one of our favorite marinas. They are very responsive, facilities are great and the launch service is great. They make access to the very authentic fishing town very easy and enjoyable. Highly recommended.

great town . Awesome visually . Excellent launch service by Mike . The other guy (weds) sucked . Such a scenic , historic harbor . We're coming back !

by John S. on Sep 08, 2023
Accommodating, helpful, friendly, very competent, funny, and the list goes on. The mariner's facilities are fantastic. A nice improvement since last time I stayed in the harbor a few years ago. The docks are in great shape. The moorings are clearly marked and well equipped. All of this made for a very pleasant and fun stay. I have ZERO recommendations for improvement. Kudos. I would recommend a stay in Gloucester to any yachtsman/boater. Cheers, Capt. Jaco
