Reviews for Satuit Boat Club
Wonderful harbor and superb service, 2017-07-30
Captain: , Crownsville, MD (100)

I had not been to Scituate Harbor in about 8 years and found the town delightfully upgraded with great restaurants, coffee shops and nice shopping. Satuit Boat Club has excellent moorings with superb service, courtesy of Captain Ed on the water taxi. He will take you anywhere in town and his 13 years on the water here will guide you well.
However, be careful of low tide in the Satuit Boat Club moorings. Depth can get down to 5' and the moorings are secured by large pieces of granite that stick up out of the seafloor by a foot or so. We know, from hard experience. Plan your escape from the mooring to the channel in detail before dropping off the mooring. We ended up waiting for the tide to rise for 90 minutes before we could escape, using a kedge anchor.

Felt right at home, 2017-06-21
Captain: , St. Augustine, FL (1381)

From the launch drivers, Mattie (sp?), Bob and Ed, to the members, we felt right at home. Very friendly, helpful and were very proud of their town. Scituate truly has everything a transient cruiser needs; laundry, super market, liquor store and plenty of restaurants. The club has a clean shower, heads and andirondack chairs from which to watch the activity on the water. They also have kayaks for member and guest use. $45 night for a mooring is a very fair price.

Great place for a stopover, 2015-08-23
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (231)

Spent two nights here before transiting the Canal. Staff very friendly and helpful. They take mooring reservations easily over the phone. Nice, simple facilities. And Scituate is a very pleasant small town to visit with grocery, hardware, restaurants within an easy walk. One criticism: the boat club, the yacht club and the marina all have similar names which frequently causes confusion. Make sure you know which one you're talking to.

Wonderful people- very crowded, 2014-09-04
Captain: , Charleston SC (743)

We duckd in here trying to escape the uncomfortable roll in Gloucester's Southeast harbor. The folks at the boat club are great but the only mooring available for our size (48') was near the channel mouth and was still somewhat exposed to the roll. By morning the wind had switched to the SW and the harbor was delightful. Great Shopping nearby and the Local Fish Market sold us the best, freshest cod I've had in years! Five Stars except when the sea runs out of the east.

Very nice surprise, 2014-07-13
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

Launch driver couldn't have better. Found us a quiet mooring, was incredibly welcoming and even picked us up at the harbormaster dock after we'd gone to the grocery store. Club is unpretentious and completely open for visitors. Congrats on whoever runs this place. They know the true meaning of gracious.

What a nice place, 2013-09-22
Captain: , Bremen, ME (40)

We stopped here 2 nights ago. Overall a great place to stay. The boat club launch captain (ed lynch) was a very nice fellow. They meet you with a launch after you enter the channel and guides you to your assigned mooring. Ed then gave a very nice summary of the town and brought us back and forth. Nice protection but it was a very calm night.

Go Out of Their Way To Be the Best, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Bridgeport, CT (559)

Their appears to be a little fiiendly competition between the Boat Club and the Yacht Club next door. Both do their best to make your stay the best. We selected the Boat Club as we were looking for a no frills stay. The launch took us to the town dock, arranged for a pump out when the town pump out boats were out of service, and even picked up block ice for us at the Yacht Club when they ran out. The town can't be beat for normal provisioning with a grocery, laundromat, drug store, hardware store and many good restaurants. We plan to come back.

Pleasant folks, 2012-10-02
Captain: , Brooklin, ME (1081)

Everyone at SBC was really pleasant and unpretentious and mooring price wasn't too bad. It is a crowded mooring field, but the launch led us in. Normally we anchor out, but we didn't feel too bad to part with $35 here. The shower was adequate and we even spent some time hanging out with club members and got good tips for the trip south while being offered free wine.

They went above and beyond, 2012-08-22
Captain: , BANGOR (41)

I was met at the harbor entrance by the SBC launch. It was clear that they were looking for business but since the harbor was new to me i was glad for the help getting a good mooring right away. The folks on the launch were stellar. I had to pick up a friend at the train station and one of them volunteered to drive back and forth for gas money -- he even stopped to let us get provisions at the grocery store. We only stayed a few hours but I was very impressed.

Great service in a great little town, 2012-07-13
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

Starting with the launch operator who took us to the mooring and collected the $35 (cash) fee, our impressions of this club and town were great. It was the most friendly in New England so far. So many things are within a reasonably short walk or bike ride.

Cheap digs, 2012-07-12
Captain: , Weymouth, MA (52)

You can't complain about the accomodations here if you are under the gun with time or weather!

Great place for a transient, 2012-03-14
Captain: , salem ma (380)

cheap mooring, use of the facilities, launch service and great people.

Boat Club mooring, 2011-09-06
Captain: , Salem Ma (790)

Lanuch and use of the club house included in the $35 fee, which probably makes this a better stop than using EZ Rider/Cedar Point if you have been out a while. The walk into town for shopping/eating is around 1/2 mile though, which is less convient than EZ Rider landing at the harbormaster's. Though the alk is mosting slightly downhill on the way back.

Friendly club, 2011-07-31
Captain: , Boston (621)

Recently stayed on a boat club mooring for one night. the launch service was quick and responsive; it seems to serve a smaller number of moorings than the alternative, Flyers, which we have had very long waits with in the past. though we didn't use the club house facilities, guests are welcome to use the showers, etc. The launch driver was happy to drop-off and pick-up "downtown" at the fuel dock. this will be my first choice when stopping in Scituate in the future.

Wonderful Experience, 2008-09-03
Captain: , Saint Petersburg, FL (181)

The Satuit Boat Club has a wonderful mooring and launch service that is operated by experienced and friendly folks. We will difinitly return to this operation and recommend it to others. Scituate Harbor is just off the water but with good protection. Great place to stage for the Cape Cod Canal.

Pleasantly surprised, 2007-09-04
Captain: , Boston (619)

I had always moored at the yacht club but they couldn't accomodate us over Labor Day weekend so I hailed the Boat Club. The launch was quick to respond and show us to a mooring, the launch service was quick and reliable. The facility is modest but nice and an easy walk into town. The overnight mooring fee is $35, which includes launch service. Cash only; they don't take credit cards.
