The location is great with easy walking access to many Boston landmarks including Faneuil Hall, North End and Seaport. But besides the location, the service is tremendous with some of the best people you’ll ever meet. We have been back… and we will be back.

We were on a mooring right off the marina. Could not have been easier. Best part was hearing the trains in the tunnel under the boat. Scary the first time!

Fantastic location and staff! The only negative that I can see is the rolly nature of the location, probably due to the ferries. But, we will be back!

Awesome Experience July 24, 2023 Loved the location and staff at Boston Waterboat Marina on Long Warf. Spotless bathrooms and super attentive and friendly staff. Our original trip got canceled due to fog and manager Chris allowed us to rebook. Highly recommend. Seven C's Humarock, MA

by John H. - Verified user on Jul 24, 2023
We stayed from July 4 to July 7 on a mooring. The staff was great and your restrooms and showers were spotless. Made us feel very comfortable during these Covid-19 times. There was also a Mega Yacht next door that brought hundreds of boats by to take pictures

We had a terrific time here. Spent 5 nights exploring Boston. The marina is right in the heart of the sites. The marina is extremely maintained and always available if you need help. We’ll be back. Highly recommended. We were on a mooring. 38 foot sailboat.

by Bill b. - Verified user on Jul 15, 2023
Really well maintained moorings spaced very very comfortable. Just a stones throw from their dinghy dock which is in great shape. Nice clean restrooms, showers, & laundry. Really well located for getting around the city on foot or on the T The downside is it can be somewhat rolly from ferry traffic, and noisy from helicopters and Logan nearby. But the craziest part is (at least at our mooring) how much we could hear and even feel the T going through the tunnel right under us. That was really disconcerting until we figured out what it was.

by William M. - Verified user on Jul 12, 2023
Great staff, perfect location! Walk all over downtown and the Freedom Trail. Free water shuttle in the afternoon to Encore casino which is also close to Costco and Target.

Great staff, very nice facilities, close to Boston waterfront stuff. A little rolly from the ferries going in and out, but all of Boston harbor is rolly. Staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful.

by Kimberley M. - Verified user on Jul 02, 2023
The Marina is super clean and has great amenities. The staff was helpful and friendly and so were the people who use the Marina. Perfect location. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back. Thank you BWM!

by Ed W. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2023
We came (again) to the BWM before the start of the summer season. The staff here is as nice as could be. We asked to stay for a couple of extra hours due to a medical issue and they were very accommodating. I would not have wanted to ask during busy season just as a courtesy, but I’m sure they’d do as much as possible to help out. The amenities at the dock are nice as well.

Excellent marina. Perfectly located in the heart of Boston’s waterfront, within walking distance of all the city’s many attractions. Friendly and helpful staff. Outstanding facilities. I will definitely be back. (Stayed here 6 months as a full time liveaboard during the winter.) As of April 30, 2023, I finished another winter season as a liveaboard at Boston Waterboat Marina. As before, I loved it: the location, the marina, the staff, the other boaters.

We have now stayed at Waterboat Marina 2 years in a row for Labor Day weekend. We use transient services around the New England area and it is hard to find another marina that compares to Waterboat. Chris and his team do an amazing job of making you feel at home. The whole marina is impeccably clean and well maintained. I look forward to visiting for many more years to come!!

by Steven C. on Aug 06, 2022
We’ve brought our boat into Boston several times and have always stayed here. It is by far the best location with Quincy market and the North end only a few minutes walk. The staff is terrific and we have always enjoyed our visits.

Central Boston location. Good facilities. Great staff. Would come here again and I just did. Reliable Wi-Fi. Free pump-out. Less wave action than other nearby marinas.

Left our boat on a mooring while we flew home to attend a funeral. It's rolly during the day due to the numerous ferry boats, but calms down at night. perfect access to all things Boston. Great little marina!

by Harold W. on Jul 28, 2022
My only complaint would be the rolling. You’re at the heart of the ferries so it was expected. Overnight all is calm. Great facility, all is clean. You’re steps from Downtown Boston. The view is a 10!

by Nicolette W. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2022
This marina is an absolute gem. The dock manager, John, is one of the nicest and most accommodating people we’ve met in the boating world. The marina is centrally located, the showers and laundry are great, and you can walk to all of the Boston sights.

by Terri B. - Verified user on Jul 17, 2022
Great location but a lousy mooring. It was very choppy and uncomfortable. For $75 , they should at least have a pick up buoy. We will not be going back there.
Marina Response:
Terri, I am truly sorry to hear that your stay with us this year was not up to par with your previous three reservations. Unfortunately while being located right down town the moorings can get bouncy at times with all of the boat traffic in the harbor. Hopefully you will reconsider and give us another chance in the future.

We had a great, short stay at Boston Waterboat Marina. As soon as we radioed, they were responsive and helpful. We had help docking the boat and they provided all of the information we needed for our stay right away. The docks and facilities are clean and nice. The location can't be beat. Just step outside of the secure gate and you are in the middle of all that Boston has to offer. We enjoyed our stay there and only wish that the tropical storm hadn't caused us to cancel one night because we couldn't get there from Maine. Thank you to the staff for being flexible on our cancelation policy! We hope to be back next summer.

Fabulous place to grab a mooring right in the heart of Boston. A little bouncy and lots of ferries and tourist boats but it was all part of the sites and sounds of being in the city. Marina staff is considerate and helpful and the facilities are spotless. We had a great three day stay.

Nice folks, mooring right at the end of long wharf. This is right downtown. Busy harbor with a lot of ferries and pleasure boats. Down side was pumpout boat was out of service. We will be back

by Shawn K. on Aug 10, 2021
Smack in the hotspot of Fanieul Hall and the North End. Can’t beat the location. Not a people watching spot though, tucked back a little bit. Staff was great. Facilities are pretty good - they are in floating docks. This is the inlet with the ferry terminal- so a lot of traffic and bouncing during the day. Night is pretty calm tho.

Great marina staff and docks. Right in the center of all the action. Only down side is the marina is a little rolly during the day from all the boat traffic. Nights are smooth. Pretty sure all the marinas in Boston harbor would suffer the same roll. Loved our visit to Boston, felt very safe.

by Mike s. - Verified user on Jul 27, 2021
Great location in the heart of the city.The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We moved from a mooring to the dock after a busy Saturday of wakes. As previously mentioned, the gentle periodic rumbling in the mooring field is the MBTA Blue line approaching the Aquarium stop. We will definitely return for another visit.

by Wells P. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2021
Four stars this time, usually 5. I was very upset that in the middle of Boston, the gate was deliberately left open for more than an hour. Guests of ours who arrived before we got back from shopping walked through the open gate and got onto our boat without any questions from the dock hands. Security breakdown.

by Stephen B. on Jul 22, 2021
Great Staff! Chris, John, and Jack were wonderful hosts. The location is perfect and the facilities were impeccable! Can't wait to go back!!

Sailing Catamaran - 44' X 25' X 4' There's no place to legitimately drop the hook in Boston Harbor, so a mooring ball it is! We arrived here in the early evening and tied up to a ball for a little over a week. Reservations are easy on Dockwa. Balls aren't assigned, so just grab an open one and dinghy into the office during normal business hours to get access cards and info. A little pricey at $75/night, this still amounts to a pretty sweet deal in Boston, and the location is incredible. Everything is a short walk, including some of the nation's best Italian food on Boston's North End. The Freedom Trail is easy on/off access from here. We walked it twice. The marina is secure and facilities are convenient. Laundry and showers are clean and well-kept. The dinghy dock along the south edge of the facility, along the rock wall of Long Wharf. It's configured with a hitching post, rather than cleats, so configure your lines for easy-on, easy-off. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and they operate an on-call pump-out boat for patrons!

We feel like we are part of the family from the staff to the permanent residents, we are greeted and treated warmly. Great facility and know our gear (inflatable on the dock) is safe with the security in downtown Beantown. Thanks again to BWM Cap'n Dave and the crew of Babette

Normally I do not write comments, but the positive reviews I read prior to booking convinced me to secure a few nights of dock space for our sailboat, so here is mine. Very clean facility, best I've come across. Can't beat the location and convenience; after years of working in Boston, we looked at the city from a different view and perspective. Staff was friendly and helpful! We have AC on the boat and the electrical hook-ups were never a problem. Amenities were inviting with tables and grills. Newly renovated laundry, shower, and head. Great spot!

by Lauren K. - Verified user on Aug 12, 2020
Great mooring! Easy to catch and relatively clean line. Exceptionally clean shower and laundry facilities! John brought gate key to the boat so fast, and he was really helpful - even offered to help me get diesel fuel. Loved the table with phone charger and the fan helped make it a bit cooler. Very comfortable and I will highly recommend!! Looking forward to staying again!

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.

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.

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!

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

This is a first class marina. I recommend it highly.

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...

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.

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!

Stayed on a mooring over night. Great location. We will definitely be back.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
