Reviews for Flyer's Boat Rental
Rude shore personnell, sad facility, 2015-08-25
Captain: , Old Lyme (10)

This is a boat rental business to tourists, hence not a great place for transients. The launch is a pontoon party boat, difficult to manuever, so sctatched my topsides. Showers, needs quarters, ice, expensive, and the most expensive mooring I had from Stonington CT, through Naraganssett Bay (including Newport), Tiverton, . When I asked for toilet paper for the restroom, it seemed thay thought I was going to steal it. When I asked for change of a $ in quarters, they said "we've only four" and reluctant to part with same-showers. Go elsewhere, unless you want to rent a small boat.

Poor Launch Service, 2014-09-01
Captain: , Marblehead (22)

They shut down the launch at 8 pm - even on weekends and holidays. They told us that the tide would be low at 8 pm the night we were there and they would pick us up at the town landing. We were there at 7:55 and they drove right past us and did not answer our call on the VHF.

good back up, 2013-08-22
Captain: , Portsmouth RI (730)

These moorings are farther out and not as well protected but solid (100 ft + yachts use them). Launch service is great but stops at 20:00.

Not much except friendly staff, 2012-07-10
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

We came in after a long day and didn't want to be worried about any anchoring issues, so we took one of their marked moorings. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and we got a launch immediately after calling each time. The negatives are the price ($55) and the boat wakes (ferries are the worst). We never tried to use showers ashore.

Accessible despite busy labor day, 2011-09-05
Captain: , Salem, MA (234)

As everyone says, it is bare bones considering the price. But it was no problem getting a mooring when P-town marina was full on labor day weekend and the launch drivers and staff were great. Took the launch in at low tide and got dropped off at the ferry pier in the center of town just where we wanted to be. We had chop from strong SW winds and as a result didn't notice any ferry wake.

low tide problems, kinda ghetto facilities, 2011-08-12
Captain: , massachusetts (10)

First for the good: the launch drivers were friendly, helpful, and prompt.

The bad:

1. You can not take the launch to their marina near low tide. You either have to wade through kneee deep water or they drop you off and you have a 15 min walk back to the showers.

2. Their shower/bathroom facilities are a bit ghetto (whcih is not to say that there were not clean.. they were reasonably clean). They have 3 bathrooms in a old shack out back. Two of them have coin operated showers. For $55 / night for a mooring, I shouldn't have to search for quaters to take a shower.

3. They are $10 more expensive than the town's moorings.

4. Their moorings are a bit far out and you do get some waves due to traffic (but its not real bad).

Easy but nothing great, 2011-06-21
Captain: , Narragansett Bay, RI (416)

We arrived late June without a reservation and there were many mooring balls available. Good swing room for our 54 footer. As mentioned in other reviews, harbor traffic does push wakes into the moorings. It isn't horrible, but is notable. They came to collect the fee the next morning. It was $1 per foot and the tender took our garbage with them, since the tide was too low to get our dinghy to their dock ourselves. All in all, I would probably try another, this was a bit expensive for limited shoreside service and the unavoidable rocking and rolling.

We take back our five star review, 2011-04-20
Captain: , Quincy (10)

If there was a way to change the rating we would. We are the one's who left the five star review. For us summer vacation wasn't the same without Flyers but we will never return. Last year we came late in the season and as a courtesy we made reservations for two weeks. It was late september for our wedding and we were the only boat in the entire rental mooring field that week. We had to leave early due to approaching storms. The staff wasn't around and we left a message but we werent' able to touch base until later in the week. They insisted that we'd made reservations for the full week and stuck us with a full extra week mooring fees we did not use. In the height of the summer we can understand, but this is no way to treat loyal customers when the mooring field is otherwise EMPTY. We made our reservations with Provincetown Marina this year instead. We recommend you do the same, or in a pinch just drop hook inside long point.

Not as convenient to downtown as the town moorings, but ok, 2011-02-02
Captain: , Boston (621)

Moorings, a launch, and a couple bathrooms, not much to it. Their launch has trouble getting to their dock at low tide which can slow things down and its a huge field to service so the waits can be long. It's a 10 minute walk to the middle of Ptown-- gets a bit old after a few trips.

Flyer's moorings, 2010-11-14
Captain: , Byram, CT (708)

First -- the plus side -- they were very accomodating and the driver was very skilled at driving the pontoon boat they call a launch.

The first mooring we picked up had no loop at all, the second a frayed and questionable pennant, so we didn't stay with it -- the third had a new pennant.

Despite the driver's skill, after seeing all the sharp edges on the launch I launched my own dinghy, anyway. Also, the launch can't approach their dock at low tide, so you either need to wade or they are willing to pick you up or drop you off somewhere else, and they are very accomodating about that.

The launch guy was extremely responsive and went out of his way to be helpful. He deserves 5 stars for attitude and that counts for a lot.

Flyers moorings, 2010-07-10
Captain: , Hilton Head, South Carolina (533)

I see someone rated Flyer's 5 stars. I dont understand that. For $45/night- location of their balls is well out and quite rolly, old beat-up launch which will damage your boat if luck is not yours and an out of the way place when you get there. We stayed one night and will move to anchor. I dont mind paying for value, but there is none here.

flyers is the best!, 2010-07-02
Captain: , Quincy (17)

There's nothing like the charm of a family owned and run business. Every year we stay in P-town for a week and keep our boat moored at Flyers and they are always so plesant to stay with. The launches are reliable and consestant. Even at low tide, they will hop right in the water and tow the launch out till it's at a usable depth. Often the families dog, name, will swim along side to see you off! They also have multiple rentals available right there should you get an itching to go Sailing or fishing. The fact that we return year after year and are always rememberd and welcomed make Flyers feel like our second home while on the cape. Go, stay and drink mojitos!! It's always a gay old time in PTown!

Firy Boat Captians, 2008-08-10
Captain: , New Port, RI (134)

The ferry boats do come off plane until the begining of the mooring field and create huge wakes. The only place to be is in the inter-harbor in Provincetown or at anchor at the south west side of the harbor at Provincetown Marina.
