Awesome staff and great location on vineyard sound. Many restaurants and a grocery nearby. Big berths make docking easy.

Great harbor great staff

by gmoth on Jun 11, 2022
The staff is great. The restrooms and showers are clean and my crew really appreciates they can access them 24x7. Restaurant, market, and West Marine nearby, and great Mexican food at Anejo (25 minute walk into town).

by jmartinsen on May 26, 2022
Great location and an awesome staff! Can’t say enough about them!

by harrietlangley on May 24, 2022
Great place to stay. Nice people, beautiful grocery store beside west marine and Paul’s pizza is the best!

by gmcgrath on May 22, 2022
Excellent. Very helpful staff. Great location too

by svfelicity on Sep 20, 2021
A gem on Nantucket Sound. A great layover spot for easy access to Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The docks are well maintained. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Easy walking distance to downtown Falmouth's many restaurants, grocery stores and other businesses. While the marina itself does not have a pump out or fuel, there are two locations in the same protected harbor for fuel and pump out.

by edragonbob on Sep 17, 2021
Stay was awesome. Everyone was very niicel!

by jabbo on Sep 14, 2021
Super convenient and reasonable marina. A grocery almost directly across the street and town a pleasant walk. Facilities were clean and the setting is in a town park so great access for pets. Recommend.

by ricm on Sep 07, 2021
Always clean, easy in & out, great floating docks and a reasonable price. What’s not to like? Oh the ferry can be a little noisy, but this is a great, well protected harbor. Easy walk into town for great dining, and a food and marine store walkable also.

Great location, staff, and facilities!

by ttran965 on Aug 30, 2021
The facility was excellent - slip, dock area, services and amenities. Plenty of parking and drive up access to load/unload. Staff were professional and courteous, and flexible when I had questions and concerns. Would definitely stay here again!

Love this marina!!! Love the location!!! Can’t wait to return!!

Great place. Bathrooms clean . Great dock space

by 011568 on Aug 02, 2021
Terrific town and boating area for a vacation.

by mwq13wziegjjcxox1nxd on Aug 01, 2021
Except for people on their boats don’t like any radio on so they’re a little snobby and it was only 8 o’clock

by nbacon54 on Jul 30, 2021
We asked for the bulkhead entering the harbor and got it. Even though this spot isn't close to the office there were plenty of staff there to help our two boats tie up. Very helpful. Great spot to watch the boats go by and always a nice breeze. Not good if you don't have a car, but we did.

by muselerwj on Jul 27, 2021
They couldn't have been more helpful. We arrived early and they made arrangements for us to tie up at the entrance bulkhead while we waited and we were able to visit the Falmouth YC with which our club is affiliated. Nice clean rest rooms and showers !

by jgmcrowley on Jul 27, 2021
Great harbor town slips and facilities. clean and updated restaurants and stores close by

by lmgallinaro on Jul 26, 2021
Absolutely beautiful and everything you need right there. Restaurants, West Marine and a market, even a nice little beach nearby. Great stay!

by wjmuseler on Jul 20, 2021
Excellent marina, docks and utilities. Easy walk to downtown Falmouth and stores.

by lsc0818 on Jul 18, 2021
Hope to never have to stay at Tides Bulkhead again. Compounded by inattentive dock hands. First tied us up, which we then redid as not tied well or correctly, plugged in. Second, came back and said they needed to move us forward because they’d forgotten a boat was coming in behind us. Changed power to stern pedestal. Phoned when we were out to dinner to ask us to change power to bow (again) so boat behind us could plug in at our stern as their cord couldn’t reach their bow. All this for the privilege of docking in a parking lot, with cars parked 6 feet from boat and no bathrooms. Oh, and the harbormaster told us not to come back in August because he won’t have any dockhands.
Marina Response:
We are sorry your stay wasn't as expected. The dockwa profile is very clear about the Tide's Bulkhead. Taking some time to read the marina information on the site could have avoided some of these issues. The location is specified as is the fact the restrooms are located on the other side of the harbor and the Tide's does not have WIFI. As Harbormaster for the town I can say I had no conversation with you about staffing levels in August, not sure what you are referring to in that part of your review. Happy to discuss this with you should you desire by contacting the office number. G Fraser

Very enjoyable and accommodating. Staff was very attentive and facilities very clean.

by bettycaffo on Jul 15, 2021
Pleasant dock and office staff, lovely town, walkable. Wish they sold ice. Bathrooms adequate for our needs.

by denmo on Jul 06, 2021
Always a pleasant stay here at the town Docks. We were on D dock and it was awesome . Great neighbors and a close walk to everything you need. We had our 2-16 year old beagles and the park area up past the hill is great for dogs. The town has doggy barrels and dispensers but they were empty. We always have our own. Great long weekend in Falmouth. Highly recommended

by 28473 on Jun 27, 2021
very accommodating clean facilities

by kclampet on Jun 27, 2021
Was not made aware of being put on a bulkhead away from marina with no pump out or fuel servi
Marina Response:
This review is Interesting. The "issues" you mention are clearly listed on our Dockwa marina profile. (Tide's Bulkhead) Boaters are asked specifically to state if they want a slip only while making a reservation, you did not. The town has never operated a fuel dock and dockwa states that information. Dockwa says fuel is near by (Falmouth Marine, MacDougall's, & East Marine) Finally, pump outs are widely available via several pump out boats and stations in Falmouth Harbor. (MacDougall's boat, Falmouth Marine station & the town pump-out boat)

by majabloshop on Jun 26, 2021
Gorgeous docks. Nice staff Wish there was a layout of the slips posted on Dockwa to make it easier to know where we are heading if we’ve never been to that marina before. Great location near a grocery and west marine and laundry. Worth it!
Marina Response:
Thank you for your stay with us and the suggestion about the layout on Dockwa. We will reach out to them and see if we can get that done for next season.

by rrkrrk on Jun 22, 2021
We stayed on the Tides bulkhead. It is an over-flow.area. There is no WiFi there.
Marina Response:
Thank you for staying we us. The WiFi is limited to the main marina slips only as the information in Dockwa states.

by ifknotnow on Jun 01, 2021
Very happy with my choice friendly helpful dock hands clean bathrooms close to town and great market across the street Bars restaurants right there Protected harbor Here during memorial weekend nor’easter and hardly knew it
Marina Response:
Happy you had a great experience and thank you for your nice review.

by bobsmaldone on May 22, 2021
Wonderful location. Helpful staff. Has everything you need. One of our favorites!
Marina Response:
Thank you, hope to see you back soon.

by davet007 on May 10, 2021
The marina is very safe and quiet. It's so nice to be in a slip rather than a mooring. West Marine and Windfall Market are across the street. Falmouth Town center is about a mile walk with nice shops and restaurants. This marina should be added to every cruiser's list when exploring Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds.
Marina Response:
We appreciate your feedback and nice review. Hope to see you again in Falmouth

by marym on Oct 18, 2020
Pretty little harbor, beautiful weather while we were there, nothing to complain about! Really enjoyed the Flying Bridge for dinner, excellent food!

This was our first trip to Falmouth Town Marina, and I know we shall be back. Great quiet spot within walking distance to town, and only a short distance to restaurants.

by tidetogether on Aug 15, 2020
Very clean and easy to get into. A lot of things around to do. The staff was very nice.

by justine12 on Aug 12, 2020
Had a wonderful experience at the Falmouth Town Marina. Staff and patrons were friendly and helpful, and they didn't overbook in the height of summer.

by cannedyou on Aug 07, 2020
Went to marina for one night stay, layover. Efficient and helpful. Great place for addressing mechanical issues and or reprovisioning as they have a terrific market just up the street.

by malmeida on Aug 06, 2020
Great marina. Well built docks and pilings. We rode out a tropical storm and all ended well. The harbor is extremely well protected and the marina is terrific.

by jrtwinjammer on Aug 05, 2020
Very nice stay, staff was great. Facilities are awesome. 5 stars. Jim “ Shaken Knot Stirred “

Great marina: convenient location, clean and well maintained facilities, professional and friendly staff.

by mimstrtek2 on Jul 21, 2020
One of the nicest transient slips I've stayed in. Great staff, great neighbors and great fishing. We will undoubtedly be back next year.

by plawless on Jul 19, 2020
Falmouth Town Marina is exemplary, everything you would need is available. The dock mates are wonderful a special thanks to Marco and Brandon

by south567 on Jul 08, 2020
Great Marina Great area Safe Plenty of parking

by gilligan2020 on Jul 08, 2020
Brendan was very helpful. But the floating docks appeared to be designed by somebody who has never taken a boat to a marina. The slip we were put in had a piling At the dock right were the bow should be. The electricity and water required the hose and cords to cross the dock becoming a tripping hazard. Then there was the challenge of not enough cleats. Anyway nice place though the restaurants seem to close early and West Marine closes at 5. But it’s convenient to groceries and a laundromat.

by bluesky on Jul 04, 2020
Great place to visit , the location is awesome the docks are excellent and the bathrooms are clean and the staff is helpful.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your kind review, see you next time. Happy 4th of July to you

by aequitas on Jun 28, 2020
Great facilities and helpful staff. Good location for outdoor dining and a short walk to town.

by zvqxchrj_mb7bu7vlase on Jun 26, 2020
Really enjoyed our stay. Very friendly folks. Great location. Easy walk to town and to west marine. Other folks at the docks were friendly. Very clean bathrooms and showers area. Quiet at night. Plenty of people watching and boats going by. Definitely would revisit here.

Nice clean slip will be back MAGA 2020

by bmarkpaul on Sep 15, 2019
Two stays. First at the marina docks themselves and they are floating and good. Convenient to downtown as well. Second time we were out at the pier they control at the mouth of the harbor on our 55 pilot house. Not a good answer. Had a boater not paying attention and hit our starboard side. Exposure is too great there. Staff at the marina itself was exceptional.

by dogwatch on Sep 08, 2019
Great harbor. Clean bathrooms and showers. Close walk to excellent downtown filled with shops and restaurants. We’ll be back!

by truberti on Sep 07, 2019

by dnrobinson007 on Aug 26, 2019
Easy to get a spot. In a bind and had to tie up for the night. Got what I wanted and the boat was safe and secure.

Well protected harbor, good facilities, Easy access to boat ramp to launch boat. Nice staff

by rkfitz on Aug 12, 2019
The docks were nice as were the bathrooms, but the staff were inexperienced and had difficulty controlling and tying up my boat when I arrived. When I went to the office to check in they acted as though I was an imposition. I felt as though I was at the town tax assessor's office. In the future I'll stick to privately owned marinas.
Marina Response:
We are sorry your stay wasn't up to your expectations. This review is surprising given the many review compliments the staff get in general and this year in particular.

by pvgas on Aug 08, 2019
Nice floating docks at the head of the harbor. Close to town. Clean facilities.

Had a great stay on F dock at the marina, short walk to beaches and restaurants. We will definitely be returning to this marina.

by jefeeley7 on Jul 21, 2019
Not very transient friendly. Stay away from Raw Bar.
Marina Response:
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Our records show no complaints were every brought to the staffs attention. Most guests are happy to be near the Raw Bar. If you return please request the D dock as it isn't located near the Raw Bar or Flying Bridge Restaurant.

by joblunt on Jul 18, 2019

by chrisf on Aug 21, 2018
Very well protected marina near top of Falmouth Harbor, walking distance into town and West Marine, upscale market, Flying Bridge restaurant and Dunkin Donuts close by. Great floating docks a couple of feet above water level with very safe perforated metal surface. Key access to nearby bathrooms and showers that are kept very clean.

Great floating docks and very convenient to restaurants and provisioning. Heads are card-keyed and clean, but basic re: amenities. Highly recommend for 4th July as viewing location for town fireworks, truly great show!

by owoobly on Jul 09, 2018
It would've been a 5 star review however they put us on the bulkhead which is almost at the mouth of the harbor. It was pretty rocky. Not so much for our Marlow but our friends 50' viking was rocking like crazy. We would've preferred to be at their main dock further in where there is less current and closer to town and the Raw Bar. We also had to run our Gen for our 50amp leg that runs our AC because the breaker kept overloading..Spent 6 days in Nantucket and travel alot, that never happens. We really like Falmouth and if need be stay in the same place, we would.

by jthommen on Jul 07, 2018
Very well protected and a great value. Uber or taxi are inexpensive to wide variety of shops, beach and restaurants.

About Falmouth Town Marina

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, birth place 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)

NEW FOR THE 2022 SEASON: Tides Bulkhead in July & August has been discounted as follows: ($2.25/ft instead of $3.00/ft) June rate for all locations has increased as follows: ($2.00/ft instead of $1.50/ft)


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) 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 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.

FEES: In July and August the fee doubles after 14 nights and triples after 21 nights. The maximum number of transient nights allowed in July and August is 30 total. (Cumulative not sequential)

Wifi is available at the main marina only (180 Scranton Ave) with low data mode only. Wifi is not provided at the Tides, Robbins Road or the Davis Bulkhead locations.

Requests for specific slips will be honored whenever possible but cannot be guaranteed. Slip assignments are subject to change at any time.

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
