Great and professional staff.

by Mike N. - Verified user on Aug 21, 2023
Excellent facilities! We walked/biked everywhere we needed/wanted to get to. Would have liked to have ice machine a little closer than the supermarket, but minor inconvenience (bring back pack next time).

by Harry A. - Verified user on Aug 21, 2023
Several staff members were observed to be sitting around doing nothing every time we entered the front office. When questions were asked, the inexperienced staff had no answers. Police the parking lot situation! Do not let people park there trailers like morons so that nobody can get out! I had to back my boat, trailer, and truck over one curb, across Scranton Avenue, over another curb and into someone’s front lawn all while scratching the canvas of my t-top through the trees! …and all of that cost me $1,000. If I could give this review zero stars I would have. Find another marina!
Marina Response:
Our marina provides overflow parking as a convenience to slip holders while renting, it is not a parking lot but a grass area. (No lines or designated parking spots) The park area is extremely congested at times when they are used for permitted events such as the farmers market, craft fairs and car shows. As for the staff, the vast majority of the reviews state the exact opposite as the staff routinely get exceptional reviews. Also, our transient wharfage fees are the lowest in Falmouth and much less than several businesses in town.

About Falmouth Town Marina

NEW CHANGES FOR 2024:

SLIP MINIMUM CHARGES:

The 30ft slip minimum charge applies May thru September. (Previously it applied june thru August)

Slip payment minimums not including power charges are:

April & October: no slip minimum

May & September: $45.00/night minimum

June: $60.00/night minimum

July & August: $90.00/night minimum except Tides Bulkhead which is $67.50/night minimum.

The maximum number of TRANSIENT SLIP rental nights allowed per season is now 30 (thirty total nights, does not have to be consecutive. Applies May thru September, excludes April & October). Long term transient surcharges no longer apply. Vacant SEASONAL slip rentals do not count toward the 30-night transient cap, (The 30-night cap applies only to our designated transient slips)

POWER CHARGES:

30-amp power charge is $25,00 per night. Credit card transaction fee is $5.00 each.

BOAT TRAILER PARKING:

Due to limited space, damage to town property and past Marina Park event conflicts, we are no longer offering overnight boat trailer parking for our transient slip renters. Vehicle parking (without trailers) will be allowed with a valid temporary parking pass. Please make other arrangements for your trailer as they can no longer be kept at the marina property while renting a transient slip.


GENERAL MARINA INFORMATION:

The Falmouth Town Marina is conveniently located within a well-protected harbor for the area's most economically friendly marina experience. The marina is located @ 180 Scranton Avenue in historic downtown Falmouth, birthplace of "America the Beautiful" author Katherine Lee Bates. We are located less than 5 miles from Martha's Vineyard and only 3 miles from Woods Hole. The marina is walking distance from main street, beaches, groceries stores, shops and many fine restaurants. The marina consists of (7) floating finger piers and 108 total berths. The primary transient float is "D", directly in front of the marina building. We also rent out vacant seasonal slips as they become available. Larger vessels and overflow dockage is also provided at the east side of the mouth of the harbor (Tide's Bulkhead/flat wall tie up) and northern end of the harbor (Davis Bulkhead/flat wall tie up & Davis Floats). During July and August, the marina is staffed from 8am to 8pm. The marina monitors VHF channels 16 & 9 and our working frequency is channel 12. Please contact the staff via radio or cell phone if you need any assistance during docking for arrivals or departures. The marina building has yachtsmen only bathrooms and showers. A key card is required to access that part of the building and available at the marina office. (Refundable cash key deposit required) Vehicle overnight parking is allowed in the marina by permit only during your stay. Permits are available at the office during check in. Public restrooms are also available on site. WiFi is limited to the main marina only in front of the marina building. (No WIFI at Robbins Road, Davis Bulkhead or the Tides Bulkhead)

Reservations in July and August that include a Friday or Saturday night require a minimum stay of two nights unless the slip is only available for one night.

SPECIAL IMPORTANT NOTES - PLEASE REVIEW BEFORE BOOKING:

TIDE'S BULKHEAD:

The Tide's Bulkhead (flat wall tie up with discounted rate) is used for vessels over 90ft, vessels with beams over 20ft and overflow from the main marina. (Discount fee of 25% applies in July and August, $2.25/ft vs. $3.00/ft) If you DO NOT wish to be placed on the bulkhead when our slips are sold out, please specify that in your comments. (IE no bulkhead-slip only) The Tides Bulkhead is approximately 2200' from the main marina, on the other (east) side of the harbor adjacent to the Tide's Motel @ 267 Clinton Ave. It is located at the entrance to the harbor so lots of boat traffic should be expected. It also abuts a busy motel and beach parking lot so vehicle traffic in the summer is heavy there. (Has power & water but no WIFI or restrooms) The Tide's Bulkhead at times may have inclement weather exposure due to the wave action that can take place at the mouth of the harbor due in part to the prevailing southwest winds in the summer. If you do not want a flat wall to tie up be sure to state "Slip Only" in your reservation comments.

DAVIS BULKHEAD:

The Davis Bulkhead is located at the north end of the harbor. Across the street from 26 Robbins Road and is approximately 1100' away from the main marina. (power & water but no WIFI or restrooms) The Falmouth Raw Bar restaurant is close by and can be noisy during the summer season.

INTERNET/WIFI:

Wireless Internet on LOW DATA mode is available at the main marina only. (180 Scranton Ave) Wi-Fi is not provided at the Tides, Robbins Road or the Davis Bulkhead locations. You can obtain the WIFI password at check-in.

SPECIFIC SLIP REQUESTS:

Requests for specific slips will be honored whenever possible but cannot be guaranteed. Slip assignments are subject to change without notice.

Should you require any assistance or have any issues you need addressed during your stay please contact the dock staff directly (508-457-2550), we are all happy to help and want to do all we can to ensure you have a great experience at the town marina. Gregg Fraser - Harbormaster
