Great location, but your boat will rock as the ferries come and go. It is not the end of the world, but something to keep in mind depending on the size of your boat. The staff is not overly friendly, it would have been nice if they were, but it it was in the middle of their season, so they did not have to be friendly :) The destination is a great experience.

Do ain't the mooring ball was a challenge. I suggest texting out a map with all The moorings and numbers. Would have saved us 20 mins. Ferry wake but it stos when the ferry Stops. Also it would be helpful to text out a diagram of the dingy dock and office.
Marina Response:
We do have a picture of our mooring field with mooring numbers uploaded onto out Dockwa account. As per the map to get into the marina, I think that is a great idea and will be addressed and advised for next season! We appreciate the feedback and will have it fixed for your next stay with us!

The best facilities possible. Very friendly and helpful people. 100% thumbs way up! It also doesn’t hurt that it is connected to a well stocked marine supply store.

We have now stayed with VHM via Dockwa a few times. Every time, is better than the last. The staff is #1 - available!! How many times do you show up somewhere and cannot find a soul? Not here, the team is present at VHM! The facilities are good, the porch is wonderful, the accessibility to Vineyard Haven is ideal - short walks to everything. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff though - this is where VHM shined, for us. Will in particular, was great to us. The hot shower didn’t hurt our feelings any, either?!! LOL. We will definitely be back, thanks for a great stay over the first half of Labor Day wknd 2023, VHM! s/v ARGO, C&C-34

Secure, but uncomfortable. Limited protection

Friendly and helpful staff, clean accessible facilities. Right downtown. Harbor can have swells from the north, and some wakes from passing boats during the day.

Staff is excellent, always helpful. We borrowed two kayaks and paddled the nearby Lagoon Pond one evening. They were fine with us returning them after they had closed for the evening.

Great marina with friendly and helpful staff. The dinghy dock is convenient and not crowded within an easy walk to town. The amenities are great and make for a comfortable stay. Garde East is a fantastic restaurant located above the marina with excellent food and harbor views. The deck is a great place to enjoy a drink while watching the boats. The moorings are located in the outer harbor so the not too frequent NE winds can create some waves, but overall a wonderful place to spend a weekend and enjoy the Vineyard.

Will Conway did a great job of welcoming me. And Adam was a big help as well, Beautiful cozy Marina I will recommend to other boaters for sure!

by John M. on Aug 05, 2023
Able to accommodate us upon arrival with an overnight stay on a transient mooring ball. Excellent staff and facilities and comfortable conditions.

Beautiful place, staff was superb, setting and facilities were great we were on a mooring but easy access to marina via the launch. Truly great experience.

This was THE BEST mooring situation we have ever experienced. Where to start? The mooring field manager - Will - called me just minutes after making my Dockwa request to gather more information and ask if we had any special needs or requests. He gave me his personal cell number and invited me to call him anytime before or during our stay and offered his assistance. The mooring field itself was solid, with heavy duty mooring balls and pennants . These were needed one night during a severe blow. A short dinghy ride to Vineyard Haven Marina takes you past the most beautiful field of sailboats. The marina itself offers a private beach, free laundry, and free ice. This was amazing. Oh - and free showers. The restaurant on the second floor of the marina is incredible! One of the best meals we have ever had. Once on land, you are a 10 minute walk from the ferry and town of the yard, as well as a supermarket. I could go on, but I’ll stop here - just call the Vineyard Haven Marina and talk to Will, the most helpful person in town.

Would recommend! Planning on coming back towards the end of summer. Easy access to the harbor docks. Nice launch service, close to a stop and shop grocery store. we will be back, thanks!

by Mario B. on Aug 02, 2023
The staff at the marina is among the best we have experienced. They, in particular Tom, Dock Master, showed much flexibility and the desire to assist us in anyway possible. We'll definitely return.

Stayed on a mooring in the outer harbor for 4 nights. VHM staff is very friendly and accommodating and their facilities were clean and available when we need them. My only caveat is about the harbor itself: the 3rd-party launch service uses the Black Dog dock, but in exchange, the launch is obligated to prioritize loading/unloading of Black Dog tall ships cruise passengers, which happens 4x per day and takes ~40 minutes, so confirm the actual times and plan around those windows!

by Cheryl H. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Wonderful staff! The entire team at VHM was super helpful and their restaurant is not to be missed. Thank you!

by Anthony D. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2023
Major disappointment. The moorings are not protected so you are exposed to passing ferries going by late at night or early morning. Yes their description says the moorings are "outside the breakwater"...but where does it say the ferrying will be blowing its fog horn at 5am? Avoid.
Marina Response:
We truly apologize for the poor weather while staying with us. Unfortunately with a north to northeast wind it can be uncomfortable. As per the ferries running we have reached out in hopes to not have a prolonged blast until 9am.

Great mooring gear on HD1. Very secure. A little rocky with all of the various ferries in and out. Convenient docking for the tender and access to town. Enjoyed our visit.

Very clear instructions. Launch very responsive. A little pricey at $90.
