Friendly and helpful staff. A short walk to downtown Gloucester. Calm waters for docking.

The marina is OK but far from downtown.

We set a reservation and were unable to get there. The staff was amazing and so helpful. We were disappointed we couldn’t make it but will make sure we return another time!

Great place to visit and stay, Karl the dockmaster is always great to deal with and we were well accommodated for our 2 night stay. The resort environment was clean and well staffed, only a short walk to downtown and the restaurant was great for dining and watching the hustle and bustle of the very active marina. Fuel and pump out dock staff were also very friendly and helpful. Great stop that is well protected and easy to navigate. Can’t wait to visit again!
Thank you for the five star review! We appreciate all the feedback throughout the property and also Gloucester. It has been a challenging year and uncharted waters, so we are happy to hear you had a great experience. Please visit again soon!

As always, a stay with the Cape Ann Marina folks was top notch. Dockmaster Carl and his crew of deckhands keep things moving smoothly and efficiently, always with a smile and a willingness to lend a helping hand when needed. Five Stars all around!

Staff was very nice. Quiet and calm marina.
Walk to town takes about 30 minutes but most of it was along the water. Fun town with plenty of shopping and restaurants.

We had a great stay at Cape Ann Marina! We were greeted when we arrived, they helped us with the lines, were very welcoming & gave us good info. The location is terrific, right on the Annisquam River, which leads to a great beach (Wingaersheek ), & a little further Crane's. Both are beautiful with soft sand.
Everyone we met at the marina was friendly. We enjoyed the Mile Marker restaurant & across the street was a the Causeway restaurant, which was great food & a ice cream shop there too. We plan to go back next year & if we have the time again this year!

We ended our boating season with a nice long weekend at Cape Ann Marina, the weather was great and the dock crew always accommodating.
It was challenging trying to navigate the ONGOING on-site construction, I hope they can finish up before next season as it's quite a mess.
One BBQ grill on N Dock being shared by all,, had us waiting till well after dark to eat. As the other new grill was without propane (and missing burners).
When we tried using this grill on Friday it had propane, but we were asked to move because there was a wedding going on (further validating they care little about transient boaters visiting).
Out of ice on Sunday, and only one shower does make it a bit challenging.
I wish they would upgrade some of the amenities to make for a better 'mariners experience' as it seems they care little about the boaters and more about the 'public facing' hotel & restaurant' side of the business. why they shut down the pool area for swimming and a Koi pond makes no sense at all.
I would like to give the marina more stars and a higher grade.. but for a second full season the marina really is a mess.
and to be completely honest,, the only reason we keep coming back is because of the welcome and accommodating nature of Karl the dock master and the hospitality of the boaters that reside at the marina 'especially 'B' dock'.
I cant say enough about Karl keeping everything running and everyone accommodated Sunday with little to no help. he was SOLO for most of the afternoon,, literally running from the gas dock to other dock areas around the marina landing boats all day.
I was very impressed with his calm nature and upbeat attitude but exhausted watching him.
please get him the much needed dock hands he deserves before we lose him to a more competent marina.
we'll be back as soon as we can.. but I cant really recommend Cape Ann Marina to other boaters in the current 'substandard' condition.
I hope they get their collective act together, as it's a great location.
.. and would think accommodating the mariners experience should be their main focus instead of an afterthought as it is now.

Had a fabulous time! Dock master and Dock hands were very helpful and attentive. Permanent slip folks were so nice, we made new friends!

Had a wonderful stay. Carl is a great dock master. He responded to all my phone calls about concerns with the channel depths since we were arriving at low tide. An interesting drawbridge at the entrance to the Blynman Canal to say the least! Lots of boats in the marina with a fairly industrial feel. A nice place to stay in Gloucester.

All was really great until I took a shower in the Marina shower facility. Disgusting!!! Black mold on shower curtain, shower stall filthy, sink jammed with white muck. Shelves dirty.
