Reviews for Marina Bay on Boston Harbor
I've docked there for 20 years, 2016-08-24
Captain: , Boston (601)

Marina Bay is a unique experience. It's a large marina (600+ slips) surrounded by a boardwalk with shops, restaurants and bars and a vibrant nightlife. There's also easy access to quiet, waterfront park land. It's an amazing place with relatively easy access to Boston, especially with the newly initiated ferry service.

Dock staff is as good as any I've experienced... call a few minutes ahead and someone will be there to grab your lines.

Marina Bay avoids the turmoil of Boston's inner harbor and the tugs, barges, ships and ferries that transit there. Boston is a short cab ride or walk (or bike) to the North Quincy (Red Line) T station. The ride to downtown Boston is about 15 minutes.

The marina is behind a breakwater at the end of Dorchester Bay and is well protected in any weather.

not a bad stop over..good spots to eat but the planes fly over all day and into the night..docks are ok but the outside slips need some work

Pleased with winter storage with one caveat, 2013-01-31
Captain: , Boston (610)

I have stored my boat here on-shore for several winter seasons. The yard manager has been flexible about haul and launch dates and allowing me to arrive a few days early or leave a few days late without charge. Owners can work on their own boats during the spring and I haven't been charged for bringing in an outside contractor. All of these points were problematic when I kept the boat at another major marina in Hingham which is why I moved. (You can find my review of that one if you look).
The caveat is that most boats are stored in a fenced-in lot and as of the 2012-13 season the lot is locked on weekends. Previously it was unlocked on weekend days to allow owners access to their boats. For "security reasons", the marina now plans to keep the yard locked on weekends until April, though with advance notice special arrangments can be made to open it.

Quiet marina in late season, 2012-11-01
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1068)

We went to the marina in October. At this time the outdoor night club is closed (which I understand can be quite loud in the summer time). However, all of the restaurants are still open. There was no wait for dinner (without a reservation) for our large group. There were still a number of boats in-water and the docks were still very social. Great experience overall.

Good and Bad, 2011-11-10
Captain: , Boston Harbor (71)

Use to be the "Pinnacle" marine on Boston Harbor. However, it hasn't been very well maintained and is really showing its signs of age! Docks aren't the greatest. Dog mess all over the place. Filthy and unkempt in places. On the upside, it has some nice resturants, shops, and is a nice place to visit when your on the water looking for someplace to dock and eat.

Good place to stay or eat, 2011-05-10
Captain: , hingham (161)

We stop here often. Staff can always find a place for you at the last minute. The restaurants are all pretty good. The steak tips at the shanty are awesome. In the summer the place can be a zoo but the staff handles it well and does a great job communicating even when 5 boats are looking for a place to park.

An oasis south of Boston, 2007-02-02
Captain: , Stratford, CT (146)

We stayed at Marina Bay in 2004, visiting a friend who keeps his boat here. The marina is huge and is surrounded by restaurants, shopping and entertainment. There is a very active (and at times loud) social scene with bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.

Not much else of interest to boaters in the immediate area, but the Kennedy Library is a taxi ride away. You can't miss it as you approach from seaward.

A good place to stop off if you want to avoid Boston's inner harbor.
