Always a great experience. Friendly staff, beautiful location, access to one of the prettiest beaches in Massachusetts. Thanks to Nate for help on the dock and flexible scheduling.

Nick was awesome at the dock; helpful, engaged, friendly. Really excellent. Will definitely come back! One note: The mooring ball had its pendant all tied up with the chain and pickup buoy. Made for a challenge.

Awesome Yacht Club. Been visiting for several years now. Very welcoming. Karen in office is great. Tony could not be nicer. Very professional run club. Nate and his marina and launch staff are professional, courteous and helpful with any of your needs. Look forward to my next stay.

Very cute club, with friendly people—the Commodore and VC guessed I might be a visiting yachtsman and came to introduce themselves—nice private shower, easy mooring close to the clubhouse, and a launch running 0800-2000 that comes right away. Possible to Uber into Gloucester for provisions but that can be iffy. No stores in easy walking distance.

The guys on the radio were very attentive and helpful.

We were entertained all afternoon, while on a mooring, watching all the small boat activity on the beach. Enjoyed the buffet Wednesday evening at the club. Launch service was prompt. Good stop.

COVID shutdowns put a damper on the stay. Maybe next year we can finally dine at the club. Thanks

Great place to grab a mooring with helpful staff!

Great stop as we headed home from our Maine Cruise. The launch drivers and staff were very friendly and courteous. Had a nice dinner overlooking an enjoyable sunset and, of course, the evening colors and the cannon blast.
