Reviews for Provincetown Marina
The preferred moorings for P'town, 2016-09-09
Captain: , Boston (610)

2016 review: with new ownership and a multi-million dollar upgrade, including new state-of-the-art concrete docks from Sweden, an overhaul of the launches, and updating of shower and lounge facilities this is now a world class Marina. $55/night (2016) for a mooring though that will almost certainly go up next year. When we got stuck here during hurricane Hermine, management let us leave the boat on one of their 10k pound moorings for the week while we went back to Boston for work. Great staff!

2011 review: Have stayed on these moorings several times and used their launch service. Good and convenient to downtown. Best if you can get one inside the breakwater for shorter launch rides and less wake and chop. Shower facilities are pretty marginal though.



Provincetown Marina, 2016-08-29
Captain: , Danvers MA (60)

Great place - nice concrete docks. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly.
Showers are clean and nice.
Location is great - right in town...






Huge Improvement, 2016-08-10
Captain: , Boston (40)

This years reconstruction of the marina is Huge. Finally great docks & electricity.

A bit pricy including a charge for water.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

The electric systeem was built with Arc Fault breakers on the mains and not pedistals. When you arrive they will test your boat to see that there is not electric usage on your boat. This is the future!



clean, friendly, recently update/new facilities, 2016-08-07
Captain: , Hull, MA (70)

great Marina is the best location in Ptown. large blocks of ice. clean new showers. launch service runs way past my bedtime!



rolly mooring field (updated 7/27/2016), 2016-07-28
Captain: , Niantic, CT (564)

A bit pricey for a mooring at $65/night however moorings are well maintained. New facitilies have been built with concrete floating docks, open lounge area with 2 big screen TVs. More slips are planned to open 2017 season. New floating dinghy dock. Launch service included. New showers and heads. Short walk to the foot of the pier to the center of town.



Big upgrades, 2016-07-20
Captain: , Boston, MA (10)

We just spent 3 nights at the marina on a mooring and found vast improvemnets over last year. New bathrooms have been installed with showers with unlimited hot water. A new outdoor lounge with a firepit and big screen TV. A much more hospitable environment than in prior years.

The launch is prompt, friendly, and professional as well as providing useful local information.

Town is a bit crowded, but with a fun atmosphere and there are buses and rental bikes readily available.



2016 Blessing of the fleet - Review of Marina Updates, 2016-06-27
Captain: , Marion (10)

Just got back from spending a long weekend at P-Town Marina (on a mooring). While the actual moorings are pretty much the same as they have always been, the facilities is MUCH improved. Brand new bathroom, showers, sinks, etc. Gone are the coin operated showers.

The staff was very friendly and VERY professional. While they have some things to work thru (mooring/slip reservations) and logiistics, the management is on top of things and working hard to make this a first class facility.

Lovely captains lounge with a couple of fire pits and big screen TV's, plenty of tables and chairs with umbrellla to relax.

For anyone returning from prior years, you will be very impressed with the changes. We certainly were very pleased.



Marina is only marginally open right now..., 2016-06-21
Captain: , Amelia Island (140)

Marina is currently under reconstruction. Heads/showers planned to be reopened in a few days (around 6/24), and launch not operating right now. We were unable to reach the marina by phone yesterday, and phones have reportedly been down for about 2 weeks. VHF contact with marina marginal (seems like they have their radio set on low power, so boats were having difficulty talking with the marina -- iof they answered a hail at all -- from tip of Long Point). Many moorings available, and once we tracked somebody down the next moring to pay, we were only charged $30 instead of the regular $55/night. The new docks (where we tied up our dinghy) look very nice.



Provincetown Marina Fuel Dock, 2015-08-31
Captain: , Essex, CT (30)

This is a fairly expensive marina ($55 for a mooring). The fuel dock is a Citco that is 100% self serve. It has a float with the nozzles laying on it. The attendent can not get on the float (no ladder). Fuel costs for diesel is $4/gallon. Would not recommed getting fuel here. They have no water. If you get a slip or a mooring from the marina, you can take your boat to an empty slip (if availble) and get water or else you can get it at a city dock that requires coin operation. On the bright side, the launch service is excellent and the town is very intersting. It promotes the gay and lesbian lifestyle! Tons of stores and restaurants - most interesting is the Pilgrim Monument and the library. Bottom line: If this is of interest, purchase your fuel and fill up with water before you arrive!



Closest stop in P-Town, 2015-08-25
Captain: , Barrington RI (475)

Stayed here two nights, while waiting out a LOT of rain in mid August. I was surprised at the $55/night for a mooring fee (same as Flyer's), and $1 for a 4min. shower. But, you are as close to downtown as you can get, and the launch dock is also available to tie your dinghy up (only if you rent a mooring from them). The launch makes clear that they expect a tip, so I only used the dinghy. The showers and bathrooms were OK for a public facility... If I were to stay in P-town again, I would stop here.



Great stay at the end of Cape Cod, 2015-07-12
Captain: , Buzzards Bay, MA (296)

Stayed here this past weekend 7-10 thru 7-12 out on a mooring. Very prompt and courteous launch service, decent bathrooms and ice readily available at the office.
Thanks to whoever corrected my error on the slip pricing, it's accurate now.
Our mooring was well marked and we had a 10 foot pennant to tie on to that was more than robust enough for our 25 footer.
Definitely call ahead and reserve a spot if you're planning to arrive on a weekend, any moorings not reserved go to hourly customers on a first come first served basis and it filled up really quickly on Saturday.
Be patient when calling for a reservation as occasionally they are taking them while running the launch too, so they can get a bit busy.
We'll definitely be heading back soon.



Great launch service. , 2015-07-08
Captain: , Byram, CT (698)

We stayed on mooring here for a night following July 4 weekend. There was plenty of room, and they were very kind to put us in a good location. Mooring spacing was adequate. The launch driver had a great sense of humor: A boat named Incognito called him, and he said he didn't recognize them. The launch service was very quick.

The bathrooms were simple but clean, although I was disappointed to see that you needed tokens for the shower. I think that should have been included for the mooring few.



Beautiful area!, 2015-07-07
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1079)

Stayed during the week and over 4th of July weekend - lots of tourists on the weekend but it was nice during the week. The area is very beautiful and has something to offer for all. We dinghyed to the beached and saw lots of seals. The water is surprisingly warm for New England and very clear! We stayed on a mooring - we draw 5' - make sure you are very clear when you make a reservation - there are spots in the middle of the mooring field that get shallow.
Launch service was really great and friendly.
Bathrooms were not ideal but were clean and you can shower. $1 for a token that lasts 4 minutes.
Raw bar happy hour at Vincents is a must - $1 oysters!



What you expect P-town to be, 2015-06-19
Captain: , Boston (601)

It's expensive, but P-town has a short season and slips and moorings are in demand. Get over it.

Slips and moorings are convenient to the heart of town and exactly where you want to be. Staff is friendly and helpful, launch service is reliable, the dinghy dock has always had space for me.

The heads could be better... they tend to be a bit dark and damp... and paying for showers (tokens available at the office) on top of paying for a slip/mooring is a bother... but it's part of the quirky nature of P-town, so roll with it.

Call ahead for a reservation! (The cancellation policy, 24 hours, I believe, is fair.) They fill up on weekends and holidays.



Convenient spot from which to visit Provincetown, 2014-09-13
Captain: , Northport MI (405)

This is a no frills marina but gave it 4 stars : conventient, good concrete docks, basic but clean facilities (can accept fee for showers when learning fresh water needs to be brought to PTown), very friendly and helpful staff.



Convenient Tie Up, 2014-08-31
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (970)

This is the place to tie up and plug in in P-town, and is convenient for accessing the charms of this colorful resort community.

Lots of ferry and day boat traffic across the fairway on the town wharf can be noisy at times.





3 Stars for facilities- 5 stars for location., 2014-07-30
Captain: , Montreal (60)

Difficult to have a better spot in and view on Provincetown. Right in the middle of the village, a few minutes walk to the town/beaches shuttles.



Ok but doubt we'll return, 2014-07-13
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

Moorings were very rocky, launch was quick and efficient but wasn't very impressed with the town. P'Town is a bit hokey. Too many people, not enough sidewalks and a very touristy feel.



Launch comes with mooring, 2014-07-02
Captain: , Ruskin Florida (702)

We got a mooring and it was in a great location... almost behind the breakwater.. Launch service comes with the mooring. Nice people.



Good Place In A Storm, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Bridgeport, CT (548)

We came in late July to weather a storm and stayed three nights, paying one night at a time. We got a mooring just off the town pier and the launch service was prompt and went the extra mile to help my wife and I get provisions from the dock to our boat. Downside - we only had one pendant so had to rig a line to their pendant so I could attach it to both cleats to eliminate the stress on our bowsprit.



reliable service, 2013-08-22
Captain: , Portsmouth RI (673)

These moorings are more sheltered than Flyer's and the launch service runs till 23:00, which for Ptown is great. Pier is in center of town with innumerable things to see and do within walking distance.



PTown Moorings, 2013-08-10
Captain: , North Palm Beach, FL (450)

Came over on 7/24 for a couple of nights, but left a day early because of deteriorating weather. Since I pre-paid for two nights, I was out $55. It did not seem reasonable to me that I could not apply the $55 to a future time, but I guess they can do what they want.

Great launch service, though!

PTown is a great town and this is a prime location. We walked the streets, saw plenty of off-the-wall sights, had some great ice-cream, all before the weather. We will be back, although we will try to be away from the commercial guys due to lots of wake!



P-Town Marina & Moorings, 2013-07-07
Captain: , Oriental, NC (220)

The moorings are good enough, secure in some high winds. The dinghy dock is quite inadequate with room for about 6 dinghies. However, the do have two launches which compensate for the lack of dinghy space. It's a family owned business and the people are nice and helpful.

The showers are $1.00 for about 4 minutes, tight but adequate. The showers themselves are spartan but clean.

The location is great; walk off the pier into the center of town, lots to do and lots of places to eat to the right or left.





First time and a good stop, 2013-07-05
Captain: , Port Aransas, Texas (998)

We decided to spend three days here over the 4th. The town appears from sea to be laid back. The Provincetown Mooring Service met us and directed us to the spot. They run a launch service which revealed to us something way different that a laid back town. This place makes Key West look normal with great food, people watching and a very dog friendly port



The town makes it all worth it, 2013-06-19
Captain: , Westport Point, MA (321)

Spent a few days here for repairs (not done by the marina) and although it was bouncy, the town made any inconveniences worth it. Took the town buses to Herring Cove and Race point and wandered lazily through town. Lots of good eats, lots of good shops, and amazingly good people-watching. A beer at the Bradford is a must.



Monopoly begets complacency, 2012-09-26
Captain: , Boston (104)

Tired facilities, disgusting showers and at least one totally obnoxious office staff member. Give this place a miss if you can. Only positive is the launch driver who, given the launch service is included in the price of the mooring, hustles for tips in a friendly, jovial way.



Provincetown Moorings, 2012-07-13
Captain: , Stuart, FL (909)

The mooring field behind the sea wall is best. Occasional rolling as ferries and whale watch boats arrive and depart. The launch operators who show you to your mooring are really nice, friendly, and helpful. $55/night includes launch service and tipping is encouraged.

P'town is great. We did a walking tour that showed us a lot. You have to see the one-half scale model of the fishing schooner, Rose Dorothea, that won a race in 1907 in the new public library.

All the rest of P'town is great - restaurants like Ciro & Sal's and the Mews.

I wish the staff of the Provincetown Marina were a little more customer friendly. We asked to come in for water and were sort of tolerated, not welcomed.
Last words from the guy on the radio were, "Just water!". Not sure what he expected us to do.



PT Mooings, 2012-07-05
Captain: , Salem Ma (560)

Updaqte - July 2012 the moorings are now $55/night

Have stayed here numerous times the past 3 years. $45/night if they are running the lanuch full time or $35 if reduced hours. Lanuch service is included and the ride is short. If needed the floating dock next to the fuel staion for your dinghy. If you use the showers at the marina let the hot water run at the sink first or you are going to lose time on your token waiting for hot water. There is pay for water at town dock between the piers. PT is just an interesting place.



Bumpy mooring, 2012-03-16
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

We've stayed here on several voyages and it was a rolly mooring field each time.
Wonderful launch service.
Expensive fuel.
Tough getting on and off the fuel dock if the wind is wrong.
Great to be so close to town.
The little seafood rest. Just to the left at the top of the dock has wonderful food. Just look for all of the lobster pot floats on their building.



Great Location, good service, 2012-03-07
Captain: , Pawtuxet Cove, RI (272)

We have stayed on the moorings here and location and launch service is quite good. We had a bit of a blow out of the southwest and it was a bit rocky but we felt secure on the mooring. It can get foggy out here too, but it is easy access in and out



Needs some TLC, 2011-10-12
Captain: , Southport, ME, USA (1158)

Other than a convenient dinghy dock, not much to recommend this place. Very run down. 1st mooring we picked up had a pennant in very poor condition.



Location, location, location, 2011-09-10
Captain: , Boston (70)

Great location right in the heart of P-Town. Easy walk to town.

Slips are good (although pricey) but the shower facilities are marginal. Don't forget to buy your tokens for the showers!!



Great Place to stay in PTown, 2011-08-19
Captain: , Mystic,CT (85)

We stayed 5 nights at a slip and 2 nights on a mooring and found this to be a very good place to stay when in PTown. You are right in the center of Town and within walking distance of numerous restaurants, bars, shops, galleries & attractions. There are pedicabs, cabs & car rentals as well as municipal buses if you want to venture out further.

The marina staff is very friendly & attentive & knowledgeable and keep the place running efficiently (Floyd is super!).

The shower & head facilities are not luxurious but they are clean and functional and accesible 24 hrs a day. The slips are floating concrete docks with water & 30/50 amp AC power (30 amp is free). The mooring field is close by and the staff guide you to your mooring on arrival. There is a launch service or you can use your own dinghy and tie to the dinghy dock. There is a fuel dock but there is no water available there (you can use a slip to get water if one is available) - this is one thing the marina should consider adding since we could not fill out water tanks when leaving this morning due to a;; skips being filled. We would have bought fuel at the dock but did not opting instead to get fuel where we could also get water.

This was a great place to stay and they are often booked solid due to a very loyal customer base who come back again and again. Reserve your space early in the season since they fill up quickly. We'll definitely be back next year!



Convenient to dinghy dock & town!, 2011-07-26
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (407)

Date of stay: June 26-27, 2011
Moved to a Provincetown Marina mooring after having used Flyers moorings the 1st night. Provincetown Marina has a convenient dinghy dock and launch, and is close to the heart of town. Although they said that they had internet, we could never get it to work (they need your MAC address to enter into their system). The office staff was very friendly.
