Yes - It was reported 2017 that ATT doesn't work too well on the island while Verizon is superb. On the middle hill of the island is a Verizon cell phone tower and any other users (T-Mobile, Sprint) will get service if they walk up the hill.
During summer 2017 WiFi service to ISP was down for the entire island.

Boat ramp availability


No - The locals get around in golf carts but it's all compact enough so that no transportation is needed other than feet.

Other services

Summer schedule, motorized Oyster Bar also with chowder. Both very good.


No trip to Cuttyhunk (Gosnold, MA) would be complete without a walk up the hill by the church to the summit, which gives a commanding view all around. This hill and others still has the concrete bunker vestiges of the submarine spotters from WW2.

Reviews for Cuttyhunk Town Marina
Quaintness remains, 2017-09-14
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1244)

In August of 2017, Cutty was the same wonderful place.

Inner harbor is nicely protected and retains its character. Moorings have tall boys on top of the mooring balls for easy pick up. Fixed dock with very pleasant and efficient harbor master. Wonderful old New England feel.

$50.00 for a 4 hour stay at the dock...pricy to say the least...otherwise a 5 star destination!

Loved it!, 2017-09-04
Captain: , Westport CT (554)

spent one night here on 8/24...very accomidating staff...gave us an alongside tie for our dogs...not much here but we did the lobster dinner on the boat....will definetly come back.

No frills, but safe and comfortable , 2017-08-02
Captain: , Providence (443)

You're tying to pilings, so prep your lines so you can snag the forward pilings as you enter, and be mindful of the tide.

There's restroom facilities, water, and electrical hookup, and the people are invariably friendly. Weekends can be a bit noisy until 10 or 11pm.

Cutty Hunk Marina, 2017-06-27
Captain: , Borden Light, Fall River MA (86)

I stayed there this past weekend. The place is beautiful and is managed by the local Town Harbor Master. No Complaints on the management and or the docks (typical pilings). It was nice, with the exception that there is really nothing to do there local to the marina, so unless you like hanging around it is merely a good place to stop for a night if your heading to the vineyard or somewhere else. Westport harbour seemd to us to be a better location in the area.

Always a CHARM!, 2017-01-15
Captain: , Portsmouth, RI (35)

One of our favorite places!! Cuttyhunk is a special place to relax; from the beautiful waters, spect. views and beach but most important - MasterHarbor George is the BEST! always available and ready to assist! Always a pleasure to visit!!

A beautiful stay, 2016-09-29
Captain: , Long Beach, CA (10)

Cuttyhunk never disappoints, staying on the dock was a special treat.

Great place, 2016-09-26
Captain: , Hingham (40)

We visited in late Sept so there was plenty of room. I made a reservation the day before. We recieved help at the dock when we arrived and the gentlemen could not have been nicer. We were tied up along-side in space 27. It blew hard during the night and into the morning. We left one hour after low tide and water was pretty thin just beyond the dock. I draw 5 feet and the depth sounder showed less than a foot 20 feet west of the dock. Great place to visit and the view from the Tower road is really great.

Magical Place, 2016-09-12
Captain: , Duxbury (10)

Cutty Hunk after Labor Day is even more magical with a beautiful marina and great service provided by the Harbor Master. A must take for any boater looking for a quite place to relax and enjoy!

CUTTY hunk, 2016-09-07
Captain: , Pine Orchard CT (10)

Docks were clean and well kept.

There was no one to assist in Landing but others on the dock helped.

Had we known, we could have arranged ourselves bĂ·tter

One of our favorites, 2016-09-04
Captain: , Southport, CT (70)

Always pleases. Great harbor, very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Captain Isabel, the harbormaster, is terrific and full of knowledge. A great location full of friendly people and an absolute prescription for stress relief.

First time Visit!, 2016-08-30
Captain: , Annapolis (10)

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at Cuttyhunk Marina on our 36' powerboat. We were in slip #70 which gave us a wonderful view of all the boat traffic. The dock is fixed with 6 pilings per slip and no finger pier. Our visit coincided with the full moon. Tides were in the 3.5 - 4.5 range with winds from the East. We had to keep a close eye on our lines and adjusted them several times a day. We learned the hard way to double check our lines before bedtime. Our third night in the slip, the port dingy davit slipped under a rung on the dock ladder as the tide was rising. Thank the good Lord the broker for our boat put a tool kit on our boat when we bought it. My husband took the nuts and bolts out of the dock ladder rung to free our swim platform. I still shudder when I think of what might have happened. Each slip had one 30 amp and on 50 amp hookup on the tower. The marina and island is very dog friendly. They have "Mutt Mitt" dispensers and trash cans strategically located around the harbor and along the main road. There are public restrooms but no showers. We loved the no frills, no fuss attitude of Cuttyhunk. We'll definitely visit the next time we are in New England.

Reunion by Boat, 2016-08-30
Captain: , Poind Judith Marina (10)

My wife and I steamed into Cuttyhunk and passed all of our family friends on Channel beach. All of the slips were clearly marked, well Lit and in great condition. We loved our stay and were actually able to extend one more day which was a Friday in August. The Harbormaster was awesome as it was filling up quick.

Great stop but beware of Scam, 2016-08-28
Captain: , Macatawa Michigan (1144)

We stayed at the town docks in Cuttyhunk Pond. We had a great time, the weather was great and we met wonderful folks on the dock. Harbormaster George very helpful. It's about 5.5' at low tide in the stern in slips. There is a long dock that you stern in (med moor like) with 2 pilings on either side. Slip 40 was ~ 17' wide and our bow out ~ 5' from the last pole (we are 50'). Had a great breakfast at Fish Camp (limited hours and great menu). The only negative was our purchase of a single lobster and 2 bags of ice from an elderly gentlemen at the end of the dock that is opposite our dock and next to the sandwich shop. He charged us $58. The lobster was $14/lb and the ice was $5/bag. We questioned him and he reluctantly gave us $10 back. The charge should have been $33 which including a cooking charge. We had great chowder from the Raw Bar and should have ordered the lobster from them but someone had recommended the older man. The lobster from the man was barely edible and we tossed most of it. Enjoy Curtyhunk but I would stick with the Raw Bar folks or the red shack opposite the Harbormasters office. They had drawn butter and lemon served with the lobster for a better price.

Captain: , Osterville, MA (10)

We arrived around 6 pm and there was a boat in our slip so we took a slip nearby. We got moved again on Saturday as George was working alone and gave our slip away. All in all, it was not a problem.

Great attention to detail, 2016-08-22
Captain: , Westport Point, MA (10)

This was the first time dealing with Dockwa, and I was very pleased with them following up on our slip reservation. We will definitely use them again.

A Very Social Marina in a Beautiful Location, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Gloucester, MA (20)

This was our first cruise to Cuttyhunk Island it will definitely not be our last. The dockmaster was patient and helpful getting us tied up to the dock which involves a little bit of maneuvering to back in and lasso the pilings! But with everyone stern-in it becomes a lovely, social environment. We heard there is "nothing" there but that isn't true. I had the best steamers ever from the little red clam & lobster shack on the dock; excellent pizza at Soprano's; and there is raw bar, ice cream, small market and a cafe, all right there. Bring your walking shoes and camera because the views everywhere you look are breathtaking, especially from the top of a high hill accessed by a long paved road. This is a peaceful, unspoiled paradise with a character all its own. Highly recommend it. One note re: the dock tie-up. You must climb a short ladder to get up from your boat to the dock. This could be a problem if you have a large dog or any mobility issue. There are moorings and dinghy tie-up as an alternative.

Nice place , 2016-08-18
Captain: , Boston harbor (10)

Cuttyhunk marina was friendly and helpful. I only wish they had given us a heads up about how tight a dock space they were fitting our sailboat into.

cutty hunks, 2016-08-17
Captain: , Heroncove CT (10)

Just wonderful, pleasant little piece of heaven. Just sit in the salt pond, or t the dock and enjoy. Harbormaster George is a delight, always helpful.

One of our favorite places, 2016-08-15
Captain: , Hyannis (20)

Tranquility and beauty. What more do you need to know? Captain George and his team very helpful and reasonable transient rates. Come with food, fuel, and booze and and you're all set! No internet, but maybe that's ok.
Cuttyhunk is a fantastic place, I hope it never changes.

Great Place, 2016-08-14
Captain: , East Greenwich,RI (20)

We have visited before and love the quiet atmosphere. The harbormaster is extremely helpful in getting people into their slips.

Family vacation, 2016-08-09
Captain: , Scituate,Ma (20)

We love this island and I hope to come back every year

I have to say the Dockwa app has been awesome and I will continue to use it

I hope Dockwa gets more marinas interested in its services

Cuttyhunk is one of my family's favorite destinations

Captain: , wickford, R.I. (222)

As usual, excellent stay at Cuttyhunk town marina, Harbormaster George keeps improving the facility, new ladders and pilings for this year. Raw bar and breakfast at fish and game club are always favorites with ice cream for dessert at docks, a day at the beach with friendly and helpful neighbors on the docks.

Cuttyhunk stay, 2016-08-07
Captain: , Fairhaven mass (10)

Beautiful night marina was very professional as usual

Not enough time., 2016-08-06
Captain: , Mystic, CT (20)

We stopped here for 2 nights on the way to Nantucket. It just wasn't enough time to take in all the beauty of the whole island.

Cittyhunk mass, 2016-08-05
Captain: , Cranston RI (30)

Not floating docks but water and electric are available at all slips. Bathrooms ok. They work and are reasonably clean. No showers available.

Layed back, pretty spot with friendly people ! except one who wants 5 dollars per question.

Basic, as advertised, 2016-08-03
Captain: , Newport (41)

You are on your own here for the most part unless you hail the dockmaster/habormaster/police chief to come help you. This is a stern-to set up with no finger docks between slips, so have your lines ready! Bathrooms are pretty sad,'s Cuttyhunk....

Cuttyhunk Marina, 2016-08-02
Captain: , Boston (10)

Captain George was awesome. Setting was quant and beautiful. Nice people. Great experience.

Magical Island, 2016-07-31
Captain: , Snug Harbor (10)

A gem of an island. If you want lots to do - restaurants, stores, activities - this is not your place. No cars, 2 sort-of restaurants, a few very basic home grown stores.
Quiet, relaxing and beautiful. I think population is around 60.
Bring your own provisions and step back in time.

Outstanding , 2016-07-30
Captain: , Scituate (20)

I haven't been at Cuttyhunk in over 20 years and I just left had a great evening with my wife. The docknis in great repair, George the harbormasters a swell guy and just charming and I highly recommend

Awesome place to stop over., 2016-07-30
Captain: , Westbrook, CT (40)

Enjoyed this location very much. A peaceful break. Couple of funky restaurants (picnic tables in backyards) but the food was good and the people were friendly. Awesome views of Martha's Vineyard from the higher points if the island. The Harbormaster is great!

first time visit, 2016-07-30
Captain: , Wellfleet Ma. (10)

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights ,we had rented a slip.The harbor is beautiful and the people were friendly.A special mention to the harbor master Chief George who was very courteous and helpful.Although not a great big deal marina does not have showers available, we would still love to visit again(also BYOB).

Didn't use, not enough water, 2016-07-30
Captain: , Portsmouth, RI (10)

Please refund our reservation. The Harbormaster knows we couldn't use the slip and was able to rent it to another boat. Please refund the charge.

Waiting for refund, 2016-07-29

Lovely location. Remote and fun to visit. Dock and slip conditions are excellent. George the Harbor Master and his crew are professional and they do a great job with the facility.

Another Great Day at Cuttyhunk, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Portsmouth (10)

Captain George is always accommodating and the place is just a great place to kick back

Friendly atmosphere, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Plymouth, Ma (10)

Always a great place to stay- the dock staff and harbormaster are pleasant and capable. Slip prices are reasonable... And the raw bar has dockside oysters! You must bring cash for trash disposal and purchases. Trash is $5/ bag.

Place time forgot, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Wellfleet (10)

Attentive Harbormaster, friendly locals, modern docks, quit, unspoiled and great views. Marina needs a shower, updated bathrooms and an ATM machine. Fuel docks don't take credit cards!

Cuttyhunk slips, 2016-07-27

Great place to spend a while, 2016-07-27

Best secinic stop, 2016-07-26
Captain: , Branford ,CT (220)

This is a true gem of an island! If you want to get away from the crowds this is the spot for you! There is no dock staff so be prepared to tie up with little assistance unless you have some boat neighbors on hand. George the dockmaster is usually around and does answer on the vhf for slip assignments! For secinic beauty this place can't be beat! Can't wait to come back!!!!

So disappointed in the Marina, 2016-07-18
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Answering machine said to use Dockwa. We left numberous messages because we were ony 4 hours away and Dockwa wont commit to that fast a response, but we entered a reservation for Dockwa anyway. No replies from either. We have not had great luck with Dockwa even though we used it a few times when we knew we could request a reservation days in advance. But the real problem is no returned calls. So disappointed as we really wanted to stay here.

Lost our reservation, 2015-08-11
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1190)

Crewing on a friends boat and scheduled to tie up here for the night with a prior reservation. Had a dog on board and wanted a slip for convenience sake. No response on the VHF after several attempts forced us to call the marina via cell phone. No record of our reservation was found and we were turned away to either a piling or mooring outside the harbor. We chose to tie up to an outside harbor mooring for the night. Note that the moorings had apx 3' poles on top of the balls that extended to eye closer to the deck but none had pennants on them requiring some quick line work. Enjoyed the nice scenery outside but would have preferred a slip as promised.

Remote and tight, 2015-08-04
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (420)

Arrived in heavy fog which was disconcerting as the outer mooring field was heavily occupied. Inner mooring field is closely spaced and tight for boats over 40". Beautiful setting and excellent weather protection in inner harbor.

nice location-services not so much, 2015-07-31
Captain: , City Island New York (210)

got an inside ball which was great and beautiful-but the little shops on the dock a little rude--bathrooms horrible---and "restuant" is a driveway where pizza is served...walk up the hill and view was amazing!!!

One of my favorite places, 2014-09-01
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (380)

Cuttyhunk is a gem. If you are lookiing for a quiet place to relax for a day or two, or just to rest up on a passage, Cutty is great. Not many services but that's not what it's about.

And don't miss breakfast a the Fish Club!

One of our favorites, 2014-07-13
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

We've been in Cuttyhunk many times and love it every time we visit. Quaint, peaceful, scenic - what's not to like. This is the first time we were able to get a mooring inside. It's not quite as scenic as the outside moorings - but completely calm.

True Gem, a must see, 2013-09-04
Captain: , Wantagh NY (601)

One of the best places to stay and swim and jusr relax around. Large mooring field inside well protected. Cute little "town", nice walk up to the top of the hill and on a clear day excellent view. Take the dink around the jetty and there is a nice sand beach with clean clear water.

Snug Harbor, 2012-08-05
Captain: , Camden, ME (464)

No problem getting a mooring in the inner harbor in the middle of the week, and we had enough room for our 40 ft S/V. Nice to be able to buy from the "Raw Bar" launch after a hard slog down Buzzard's Bay, but prices are high.

Check out mooring pilings for rent, 2012-07-18
Captain: , Key Biscayne FL (3171)

The field of pilings beyond the mooring field seems preferable to the crowded swing room on the moorings. Ownership is noted on a plaque. Some are $30 and others $35.
We had a wonderful breakfast at the fisherman club B&B up the hill. Dine with a great view.

Beautiful but be prepared, 2012-07-05
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1079)

This island is very beautiful. This was our first visit and I found the island to be more built up then I was expecting (there are at least 100-200 houses). However, there is not much in terms of shower, very limited small grocery store, and really nothing else. My favorite treat was the Raw Bar Boat - comes right up to your boat and you can purchase the day's fresh catch. They even shuck the clam and oysters.
The mooring field is tight and the giraffe (long neck) type of moorings are used. We had to remove our anchor in order to properly secure the lines on our cleats without the anchor rubbing on it. There is no shuttle service so be sure to have your dinghy or you'll want to pick up a slip.

Great Place to Stop For A Night, 2011-08-09
Captain: , Mystic,CT (85)

Picked up a mooring on 8/8/2011 in the Northern edge of the mooring field - just south of the anchorage. A thunderstorm with some decent winds hit and as we swung about we noted just how tightly spaced the moorings are - some boats came too close for comfort. We, along with several others started our engines "in case". I sail a 37 foot Pacific Seacraft - if you're in the 45+ range pick your mooring carefully - you may be better off anchoring or picking a mooring in the outer harbor.

All turned out well and the kids got to swim while we grilled dinner and ate some excellent oysters from the raw bar. It is a picturesque New England harbor good for a quiet day or two. I'll definitely stop there again.

Cuttyhunk Island, 2011-08-06
Captain: , Noank (60)

Beautiful island. Unfortumately, it was very foggy the 3 days we were there, in July. Pretty good mooring system but can get crowded by late afternoon. Very nice walks to beaches..

Tight Squeeze, 2011-02-11
Captain: , Pawtuxet Cove, RI (272)

This can be a bit of a squeeze at the dock. The harbormaster did not know the width of the slip that we were assigned and I could not fit the boat into the slip. 16' beam into a 14' wide slip Ultimately we were rafted along side another boat and paid the same price. Still, this is a good place to tie up and be sure to have breakfast at the Fisherman's Club. The moorings here are a great place to stay as well

Beware no dock hands. Stay at a mooring instead., 2010-08-16
Captain: , Huntington, NY (2311)

See my seperate review under Cuttyhunk (moorings). It get's four stars.

The Town Marina, not so many. Just 2 due to the difficulty in docking, poor service, and limited services.

Town: Simple, Barren even. Won't miss much if you stop in the harbor for the night and don't go ashore

Marina: No Launch, No Showers, Lots of slips, but dificult for the average sailboat to dock due to the need to pass thru pilings before reaching your slip.The harbor master appears to be the only dock hand, and is not very energetic about it.

I prefer staying outside, 2010-08-10
Captain: , Boston (619)

The mooring field in the pond can be crowded and noisy, which is everything the island itself isn't. The pond is exceptionally well protected but fills quickly on weekends. With little to actually do in Cuttyhunk, I prefer a mooring in the outer harbor, unless the weather is from the Northwest, that is.

great place to get away for a couple of days!, 2010-08-02
Captain: , Miami, fl (3666)

july 2010: stopped there again, still 5 stars in my book!

2009: nice little marina, simple and rustic... perfect get away spot. Harbormaster is friendly and helpful. no problem getting in with a 70' and 6 1/2 draft.

beaches within walking distance, some snorkeling on the buzzard bay side.

docks are very basic, but a great place to get away from it all, 2010-07-09
Captain: , Milford (530)

We tied up right on the main dock behind the Old Squaw lobster boat. Not hard, small tidal range meant we didn't need much adjustment on the mooring lines either. We had water right there, didn't bother with shore power for $30(!), but it was fine to pay $2.25/foot to be able to walk around the lovely island any time. No showers, primitive but clean bathrooms. We enjoyed the Raw Bar and Ice Cream shop right on the dock, which is probably the most active place on the island until 9pm when everyone goes to bed. We had a very pleasant time there. Dockmaster is well organized with online reservations and emails, and quite nice to boot.

A quiet reteat and conveninet overnight, 2010-04-23
Captain: , York, ME (1971)

Dockage is med-moored with piles for mid-cleat and bow lines. This can be a challenge if you're not used to tying up this way. The "moorings" are also piles driven into the bottom. We found the marina almost deserted in Aug, and were told that was pretty normal, so there shouldn't be any problem getting a spot.

There's a row of small shacks along the dock for local vendors, everything from seafood and ice cream to charter fishing trips. The B&B "Fishermen's Club" up the road offers breakfast, but instead we bough from the "bakery lady" who sets up her cart at the marina. Those and a lunch cart are about the only options for dining.

Up the road is a small museum, then turn right up Tower Rd for a great view of the harbor and out over the water.

Wireless Internet access was available from a private provider for $10/day.

Eel Grass, 2008-01-23
Captain: , New York (88)

The outer harbor is fairly well protect from the south, but the anchorage is known to have eel grass which is often a slippery bottom for anchors. You might very well drag.

The Island is dry and there is little to do except a few curio shops and an so forth. it does make a nice stop over for longer passages from the West heading up the CCC or the reverse.

Easy to enter the outer harbor day or night. Beware of the Ferry channel.

Relax, 2007-04-18
Captain: , Greenport, NY (437)

Quiet. Friendly. Laid-back. Simple.
