We docked this time to have shore power for a heater, and to take the pressure off finishing dinner ashore while the launch is running. Harbormaster office is right there with showers, and the staff is professional and friendly. Not sure if there are line handlers for docking, but our west wind was right from the back of the slip and we just backed in and hopped off to tie. Sad to see their season ends 10/15.

Nice stop over. The staff was very friendly and helpful

It's a well protected marina and great location in town. The club house could use work

by Bob M. - Verified user on Sep 09, 2023
Terrible internet service-essentially none at the slip.

by Paul G. - Verified user on Sep 08, 2023
Easy in and out. Will use them again.

The Harbor Masters moorings are large and well marked. The equipment is new this year, 2 whips and a pick up. Easy to moor. The area has all you need for a boating trip.

Very upset that the launch can’t pick up customers on a Harbormaster mooring. I don’t understand the reason for this?

by Wenda R. - Verified user on Aug 15, 2023
Good communications. Nice pick up stick

by Andy - Verified user on Aug 09, 2023
Great spot, great service

by Patrick S. - Verified user on Aug 08, 2023
Great location. The Harbormaster’a office was terrific in getting us settled. Highly recommend.

by Richard L. - Verified user on Aug 08, 2023
I wish the weather was better I had to leave a day earlier for safety reasons the harbor master was great

by Michael B. - Verified user on Aug 07, 2023
Upon entering harbor, hailed harbormaster on VHF 9 and was given mooring assignment and clear instructions on how to find the mooring which was well marked among the many other private and club moorings in Scituate Harbor. Called harbormaster on the phone and asked about where to park dinghy and was provided clear instructions. Overall, decent facility, beautiful place, and good service by the harbormaster.

Great spot with nice employees

by Kenneth M. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2023
Helpful guidance and secure mooring. Thank you!

by Ken K. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2023
They were fabulous. We were mistakenly given a mooring for a smaller boat so when we pointed out that the gave a a spot at the dock for the same price as a mooring. Dockhands and harbor master were very helpful for docking and undocking. We very much appreciated their giving us space at the dock.

by Richard B. - Verified user on Jul 28, 2023
Never got to scituate. Weather issues.

Great marina and wonderful town.

by Ray S. - Verified user on Jun 29, 2023
Great place to lay up. Everything you need within walking distance (groceries, chandelry, laundromat, Dunkins, pizza, erc.). Staff was great, friendly, and helpful. Especially the pumpout crew. The docks are in great shape. Only thing keeping a five star review is the showers are cramped with little privacy (they are seperate from the bathrooms).

by Jeff d. - Verified user on Jun 25, 2023
The folks at Scituate are great .. very responsive and helpful in every regards

by Jason F. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2023
Pleasant harbor, no launch and no clear dinghy dock but public beach access. A little rolly with an eastern swell but nothing unbearable.

by Ed m. - Verified user on Jun 18, 2023
No issues. Stayed on mooring. Of note, no longer provide launch service for moorings. It was listed on Dockwa in fine print but missed it as have been there many times in past with launch service. Staff helpful and friendly.

by Peter W. - Verified user on Jun 13, 2023
Nice docks, nice location, great stay

by Michael L. - Verified user on Jun 02, 2023
Love this place and return regularly. We could wish the heads were available 24 x 7, but given the layout of the office it’s understandable.

by Tom O. - Verified user on May 30, 2023
l really can't say enough about the harbormaster team at Cole Parkway. We had a maintenance problem and they were extremely responsive and helpful. Marina facility is first class too! Location perfect...very close to multiple restaurants and other shops. Will definitely be back!

by Jay H. - Verified user on May 24, 2023
Great place and staff!

by Sam C. - Verified user on May 20, 2023
The mooring was where they said it would be. It was further from the Marina than I expected and there was no launch service in the evening. Oh well. We arrived at sunset and left at sunrise. A quick stop. Not much to say.

by Alain H. - Verified user on Sep 27, 2022
Moorings are too close. Neighbor swung into my stern

by Richard W. - Verified user on Aug 29, 2022
Harbormaster was very helpful. Mooring was priced reasonably. Town is nice; best Lobster bisque at Wharf Mill. Note: there is no tender, so you have to have a dinghy if using one of these moorings.

by Peter R. - Verified user on Aug 15, 2022
Harbormaster was quickly responsive when calling in for mooring assignment. Guys in the office very friendly. The launch we used was Cedar Point: $6.00 per person each way. Along with the tip, pretty expensive to get ashore. Showers and facilities available and clean. Mooring right at entrance to harbor, very open to the east.

by Barry S. - Verified user on Aug 12, 2022
Convenient mooring, easy to pick up and clean Harbormaster was courteous and helpful. Thank you

by James T. - Verified user on Aug 08, 2022
The marina stay was great. The Harbormaster met us upon arrival and assisted with the tieup. Good location for the slip, and the electrical service was perfect (30Amp x 2). There seems to have been a lot of work done on the floats and electrical service since our last visit in 2019. The Harbormaster and his staff are very friendly and checked with us more than once to see how our stay was going. There was no problem getting a pump out either. Hope to return next season.

Beautiful secure harbor Very pleasant 2 day stay!

by Richard S. - Verified user on Jul 26, 2022
I arrived after dark to find that the Harbormaster had given my assigned slip (EZS) away. They put me on the pump out T dock of which I barley fit. Had to plug into two different power Stanton’s as each had either dead plugs or reversed polarity. Assistant harbormasters were no help and never left the harbormasters office. They only had a “yeah, sorry, don’t know what happened”. Definitely not worth my $118

by Lenny N. - Verified user on Jul 19, 2022
Excellent. Very accommodating. The Harbor has gotten very busy over the years. Launch services aren't as easy to come by as one might expect for a Harbor that is as busy as it seems to be at least on weekends. Overall, it's one of the better safe havens you'll find in Cape Cod Bay.

by Mervin K. - Verified user on Jul 16, 2022
Third time here. Love it. Beautiful harbor. We eat at the Barker Tavern and was great. Ice cream at Nona’s Homemade. We will be back for sure.

by Harold G. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2022
Lovely little marina. We came in with the wind blowing 25-30 kn IN the marina! The harbormaster was awesome - she came running down to help grab lines and secure the boat. Lovely little town with nice restaurants on the water. A wonderful stay.

by David L. - Verified user on Jul 09, 2022
Harbor master helpful in finding the mooring. The launch forgot about us and the facilities are mediocre at best. Good restaurant and provisioning options.

by Michael c. - Verified user on Jul 07, 2022
Excellent facility - great people very helpful

by Jon S. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2022
Beautiful marina with top-notch access to all Scituate Harbor has to offer. Will be back!

by Matt P. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2022
Helpful line handling when we landed. Visited in a 35’ Jenneau, and we were able to snug right in. Great location. Easy access to bars and restaurants. Calm and quiet while we slept.

by Shane B. - Verified user on May 24, 2022
The harbormasters were extremely helpful and kind. Thanks again!

by Jessica H. - Verified user on Oct 13, 2021
The harbormasters were very friendly and helpful. Had a great meal on the water a stones throw from the slip and a coffee in the morning from Dunkin as well. The entrance to the harbor is a bit challenging on the way out, but just gun it to the bell buoy.

by Eric F. - Verified user on Sep 28, 2021
Harbormaster it was very helpful guiding us in. Laundromat is just 100 yards from the docks

by David M. - Verified user on Sep 14, 2021
Mooring is a considerable distance from marina offices. Launch service referred to was $6/person per ride so for 2 of us to visit town and back was more expensive than other marinas offering launch service. Docks are very nice and recently upgraded. Pumpout pretty easy to handle although no hands were available when we came in. Town and stores very handy to marina but cost of launch deterred us from coming back and exploring. Would have paid $10-15 more for mooring if launch was included.

by Kurt M. - Verified user on Sep 12, 2021
Awesome Harbor Master. Great Service, very responsive. My wife and I had a great stay, the Mill Wharf Resturaunt is awesome!

by Frank M. - Verified user on Aug 29, 2021
It was a great experience. Everyone was so helpful

by Brian G. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2021
Very friendly and accommodating. New piles to hold the docks and a new ramp this year. Fun stay over on our cruise north or south to the canal. Look forward to our next stop over.

by Robert D. - Verified user on Aug 26, 2021
We requested help in docking and they were right there. Location of slip was excellent. First overnight trip my wife has gone on without kids and she had a great time. Wants to try it again. We’re both in our 70’s.

by Shawn K. - Verified user on Aug 06, 2021
Harbormaster was VERY helpful and nice. Facilities are scarce. (Couldn’t find bathroom or trash). Floating docks are in good shape. I was on a mooring. Moorings are out near the entrance to the harbor. If you are on a ball, give them a call first, save yourself the trip into the harbor. (Which is very tight)

by Peter c. - Verified user on Aug 05, 2021
Great location. Mooring was challenging to find. Part of town system but seemed like a private marina. Staff was excellent and helpful. Would stay again!

by Daniel S. - Verified user on Aug 05, 2021
We ducked into Scituate because of weather and assumed that the mooring was in the inner harbor because that’s where the Marina renting the moorings is located. They assigned us a town mooring in the outer harbor that was pretty lumpy all night. If I had known I would have continued on to the next harbor.

by Elizabeth R. - Verified user on Aug 05, 2021
Nice Marina, beautiful scenery and we were right in the downtown area and within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. I gave this a 4 because showers were $4.00. This was never mentioned when we arrived. There was also no WiFi. Those amenities would have added to the experience even if they were built into the price.

by Michael H. - Verified user on Aug 04, 2021
Nice quiet spot. Easy in and out from Boston or Cape Cod Canal. Great staff, very helpful. Great meal at Salt Society which is a very short walk. All the stores and restaurants within 1/4 mile. We will stop again.

by Vladimir T. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2021
Nice mooring place, good facilities, very professional and friendly staff.

by Alison O. - Verified user on Jul 21, 2021
Scituate is a lovely town. The mooring (pricey) was out by the lighthouse and easy to hook up. We also figured out that there's a pay-to-ride launch service (Easy Rider) which made everything easier once we got aboard.

by Jim C. - Verified user on Jul 18, 2021
Great place to stay..staff is friendly and very accommodating..

by Robert A. - Verified user on Jul 07, 2021
Harbormaster folks were great. Floating docks in a protected harbor. Right down town with everything you would need in walking distance.

by Kristen D. - Verified user on Jul 06, 2021
The balls are located near the harbr entrance channel, so it can be a little bouncy with wakes and swell, and it's a long dinghy ride to the harbormaster's dock (launch service is not included in the mooring fee). That said, we had a great time walking around town. The grocery store is small but adequate and very convenient to the dinghy docks.

by drew p. - Verified user on Jun 28, 2021
nice mooring with padded cylinder ball and new, well maintained pendants. Good dock facility with water accessible right there and a fuel dock also close by. The harbormaster's mooring where we stayed in the "outer" harbor by G7, not in the inner basin like you may think from the pictures. It was very windy but still generally flat and a nice place to sleep. They're figuring out launch service as well, but you can pretty much call any of the other launches and pay cash if you need. Or BYO dinghy.

by Lisa T. - Verified user on Jun 27, 2021
Beautiful harbor and friendly people! As long as you don’t expect them to help you dock, you won’t be disappointed.

Great marina, friendly staff, It was great having help with the docklines as backing in to these slips is a bit tricky.

by Laura U. - Verified user on Jul 07, 2020
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and proximity to many restaurants and beaches. We were lucky to see fireworks right from our slip both nights we were there. Neighboring boats were all friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!

by Matthew M. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2020
Great people who work the dock and nice atmosphere.

by Bill P. - Verified user on Jun 29, 2020
These guys came out to help us dock with a huge thunderstorm approaching. Starting raining buckets about 2 minutes after we tied up.

by Patrick G. - Verified user on Jun 26, 2020
No shower, no place to dispose of trash, only a portapotty, but friendly people. Water on dock only worked one day. Still ok to go there though. Nice town.

by Elizabeth D. - Verified user on Sep 22, 2019
Loved our stay here! Right in the heart of Scituate, great restaurants, shopping and the views are beautiful! The marina personnel are the best and the people of Scituate are warm and welcoming. Will definitely be back
