Great spot in the middle of everything. Dock hands were very helpful. Nice complimentary coffee bar too! Will be back.

We cannot tell you enough how much we love this marina! The service is 5 stars plus!! Chris, John and Luke are the best, they go out of their way to make you happy and feel welcomed.

The location is unbeatable, the staff friendly — Waterboat is one of our favorite stops on the entire East Coast.

Not happy with the fact that the dock crew having become complacent. They have apparently given up on keeping seagulls and mussel shells (with flies), and bird droppings off of the docks. The mussels are growing rampantly on the underside of the docks, so the seagulls have an easy meal. I’d suggest cleaning the dock bottoms and taking care of the mess on the docks. A very nice expensive large sailboat pulled into one of the slips while we were there. I can’t help But think they must not have been impressed when they stepped off of their boat. Otherwise we find the location and amenities appropriate.

We love WaterBoat Marina. They staff is on top of everything. They are there waiting and welcoming you the second you call in. The marina facilities are very clean. The view of the Boston skyline is very pretty. The location is terrific for walking to the Italian North End and it's many fabulous restaurants, Faneuil Hall Market Place, Columbus Park so many destinations. It's one of our favorite marinas, we have always had a great visit and never any sort of issue.

Awesome stay. Folks are great. Very accommodating. They let us do a late checkout to allow some weather to go through. Much appreciated.

by pcarlton on Aug 24, 2019
Great marina Very friendly staff, super clean showers, and very safe with downtown Boston a few hundred feet away. Best in Boston
Marina Response:
Thanks for the kind words! Hope to see you back soon

by pscala on Aug 21, 2019
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, very clean facility. Wish I could have stayed longer!

by panderson on Aug 19, 2019
Helpful staff, clean facilities, complimentary amenities, great downtown location, docks in good shape. Easy in and out to harbor.

by lfontana on Aug 18, 2019
Wonderful accommodations and help by dock crew. Very professional and helpful in making our stay memorable and fun! Highly recommend!

by karichgb on Aug 07, 2019
Had a great stay at Waterboat Marina, staff was very accommodating. Marina is within walking distance to the North End, Faneuil Hall among other great places to visit. Be sure to bring your tender along to enjoy all of the harbor islands!

by ctsail on Aug 06, 2019
Great place to stay on a mooring in Boston Harbor. Staff was awesome. Facilities are meticulously maintained. Some of the nicest head facilities I have seen. Thank you for a great stay!

by psrourke on Aug 05, 2019
Location and facilities can’t be beat. It would be nice if water taxis (Tamara) and boaters would show a bit of courtesy and not cut through the mooring field You really should visit this place. So close to Aquarium you can hear the seals barking at night

by bobharki on Aug 03, 2019
Friendly knowledgeable. Clean

by rick on Aug 03, 2019
This is a first class marina. I recommend it highly.

by looma on Jul 29, 2019
Very nice location, and cery friendly staff. Rather noicy place - having the subway in tunnel under water there, the nearby airport and a lot of ferries and a lot of private boats who run theue the morringfield, but its in the City! Morring was 75USD which is very expensive /overpriced- and a very slow wifi. So an medium rating...

by bilshields on Jul 29, 2019
We are from Cape Cod and make a once a year cruise to Boston. We love Waterboat Marina. Very friendly and accommodating staff and the facility is clean and well maintained. Location is fantastic. Nothing but good things to say about this marina and our stay.

by ewasserson on Jul 29, 2019
Incredibly nice and helpful staff. Spectacular views of Boston from the mooring field. Even though the moorings are exposed to a significant amount of movement, the scenery is a must do! We used our dinghy a lot, as there is no launch, but it was easy. We recommend staying here!

by rrkrrk on Jul 28, 2019
Good location. Good facilities. Good staff. Would come here again. The only issue was seagull poop on the docks. They could wash it off regularly if they were sensitive to it.

by coastwise on Jul 22, 2019
Stayed on a mooring over night. Great location. We will definitely be back.

by dastrau on Jul 21, 2019
We had a wonderful stay here. The staff is helpful and the facility is excellent. It is also superbly convenient to everything you want to do in Boston. You are right in the middle of everything, walk to the North End (Little Italy), Chinatown, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, Long Wharf, the Aquarium --- it's all there. This convenience means that you are also right where all the ferry action is, so there's some rocking from their coming/going, but not during the night.

by sun_catcher on Jul 13, 2019
Great location, dock hands are the best. Bathrooms are A#1. Would highly recommend ,

by time2pursuit335 on Jul 08, 2019

We had a great four days stay in Boston. The dock hands were very helpful and the coffee in the morning was very good. We will be back soon.

by tjblaser on Sep 23, 2018

Everything was fabulous. Boston skyline at night can’t be touched

by kpower50 on Aug 24, 2018
2nd year we've stayed there. Great location and facilities. Easy easy docking with helpful staff. We'll be back.

by u142506 on Aug 22, 2018
Really helpful staff, and right on the edge of town. Local wine and grocery delivery too - try Federal Wine & Spirits for the former, and Roche Bros for the latter. Lucca restaurant on Hannover St also worth a visit.

by jessephen on Aug 20, 2018
Love the location of this marina and the service is terrific. Just two minor complaints: dinghies that are not being actively used (ie have 6-8” of water in them) need to be moved further down the dock to make space for actively used dinghies. And having a dryer in each bathroom stall would be nice. The place is clean, well kept and right in the heart of Boston. It is a little bouncy during the day but quiets right down at night.

by joeapicella on Aug 12, 2018
The marina was flawless, the staff was excellent and the location fantastic.

by cpholt2 on Aug 11, 2018
Had a fantastic stay at Waterboat Marina. Great team made check-in/out very easy. Location is fantastic, very protected marina and easy access to the city. Will definitely be back!

by pvgas on Jul 30, 2018
Excellent location for downtown Boston. Ferry wakes until about 10pm in the mooring field. Clean bathrooms with good showers.

by cutmygrass on Jul 30, 2018
Friendly staff and bathrooms/showers are always very clean.

by laketop on Jul 24, 2018
It’s difficult for me to compare this marina with other Boston Harbor marinas as this is the first time I’ve stopped in Boston. Pros, Great location to dinning and attractions, spectacular views, great staff, showers, bathrooms and laundry if needed. Dock side picnic area and coffee machine. Good floating docks, water and electric all what you’d expect. Cons, Marina can get bounced a bit with harbor boat traffic and or wind even though it’s tucked in a bit. The historic building right next to the marina is under construction and work began on Monday morning at 6am. It was very noisy. I’m sure the marina staff is not happy nor to blame about this issue.

by paul128 on Jul 08, 2018
Great location. Great people. I can't say enough about Chris, Jon, Luke, and the entire crew. Been many times, always great!

by marcy on Jul 02, 2018

The facilities were very nice! Wonderful location. Already planning our next trip:)

by ttrogele on Jun 19, 2018
Great overnight stay. Friendly service & so close to North End restaurants. Note: Buiding next to marina undergoing external renovation, lots of noise during the day

by ooohaha on Jun 11, 2018
We love Waterboat Marina! Whenever we go to Boston, this is the place we stay at. The location is perfect, right at the entrance to the North End. The facilities are clean and staff accommodating.

by capttom2 on Sep 02, 2017
Great location. Called ahead to advise of late arrival. Person who answered phone was very helpful and advised where my pass key would be located should the office be located. This was my third stay at Waterboat, my first on a mooring, and it was a great night which we all enjoyed. Thank You to the staff.

by mdh on Aug 28, 2017
Excellent facilities and location for Boston and Logan airport.

by navigator47 on Aug 23, 2017

by minx on Aug 20, 2017
We always enjoy Boston Harbor and Waterboat is the best way to enjoy it. Staff is first class and very nice to speak with as we plan our stay

by northstar1 on Aug 15, 2017
Great place, right at the foot of Quincy Market. Clean and well protected marina. Good docks, good power. Helpful staff with night security.

by sromaine on Aug 09, 2017
Perfect downtown location. Pubs, restaurants, street performers, historical sites, the commons, etc. Everything within walking distance, except perhaps a grocery store. Uber/Lyft is readily available tho. It gets a little choppy during the day, not bad, but calm at night. Staff was very helpful.

by augustefortin on Jul 18, 2017
The view and location are outstanding, facilities were clean and staff were very helpful.

by c7a1nw55deroyksvx4we on Jul 05, 2017
The folks at Water boat are the best! Thank you Chris.

by shmopsey on Jun 23, 2017
Everything was wesome as usual!!!

by cdahl303 on Jun 22, 2017
Fantastic location with easy access to the city. We had a nice view of the tall ships from here. Staff were very friendly and welcoming -facilities are very clean and the access gate is secure. No launch service for rental moorings is an inconvenience - we had a rowing dinghy and high winds made the trip to the dock difficult - we used the water taxi a few times $12 per person each way. The wifi in the mooring field is not working - the confirmation email includes the network and password but they are non-existent. I sent a note asking for the revised information and never received a reply - Since I work from the boat, I had to scramble a bit to make alternate arrangements which was not cool. Other than that, we had a great stay!

The staff are the best! Efficient, polite and very helpful. Very clean facilities Great location with easy access. Highly recommended
