Vineyard Haven fuel & dockage, 2016-12-18
Captain: , Marthas Vineyard (41)

Marina Owner & Tug Capt Ralph Packer and his marina dock master Noreen & staff will be wonderfully kind & helpful during your stay. Convent location - easy walk to groceries, shops and restaurants or hop onto a passing bus. Strong quality fixed docks with power & water. NOTE: All VH harbor docks are exposed in strong NNE weather, so get a mooring behind the breakwater or go inside the draw bridge into the Lagoon, or go north across to Falmouth.

The staff is kind and courteous. Very helpful.

Rock all day and all night, 2016-08-22
Captain: , Oyster Bay, NY (10)

Unfortunately there is only one dock space where the bow of the vessel is into the waves. Our 42ft Bertram rocked all day and night making sleeping and sometimes walking a challenge. The staff was quite nice and the location is good. Unfortunately the slips all have the waves hitting the docks boats broadside. You might also consider adding a trash receptacle at the end of South dock. It is a long walk to the fuel dock to dump your trash. Leaving it on the dock for pickup is way too appealing to the seagulls.

Awesome stay!, 2016-08-08
Captain: , Old Saybrook Ct (10)

The Team at the Warf went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Service exceeded expectations. Will certainly be returning.

Clean dock, 2016-08-03
Captain: , Ft Lauderdale (10)

Dock was clean and good power but security was not great. Had drunk people board the yacht and southerly seas will kick you around.

Great place to stay in Vineyard Haven, 2016-07-27
Captain: , Watch Hill, RI (10)

Staying at Tisbury Wharf was wonderful! The experience is all about customer service. The staff is exceptional. The docks and the location are great. Close enough to town to walk, but far enough away to be nice and quiet. I highly recommend Tisbury Wharf. Noreen and Jan are great!

Enjoyed our stay., 2016-07-27
Captain: , Mystic (10)

Great dock, excellent shower facilities, very helpful staff. Will return.

Beware of reservations, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Portsmouth, VA (430)

Made a reservation, not advised of unsual terms, changed date on reservation, asked for credit card #, not told of any cancelation terms, had to cancel, did so 4 days in advance. Charged for one day, quite an unnecessary hassle to get refund. Stayed here 4 years ago, pier was very good, all appers to be same. Be sure to use care in giving credit card info, get definite terms to avoid confusion,

Diesel Problem, 2013-08-03
Captain: , New Bedford, MA (198)

I found the staff at the fuel pier very nice and helpful. However, I may have purchased less than good diesel fuel. Expierenced deisel stalls (never had before). Treated fuel and refueled else where. all is OK.

Don't Bother, 2012-12-06
Captain: , Wickford, RI (386)

Have stayed here twice a few years apart. Got stuck on the fixed dock with a mini cruise ship with it's Generator running all night. In the morning we had a parade of geezers from the cruise ship looking in our windows. A long walk to the heads and trash: it's not a marina, just a dock.

Good Vineyard Haven option, 2012-08-19
Captain: , Stuart FL Middletown RI (240)

Stayed two nights. Friendly staff, helpful with docking. We tied up behind the fuel dock, probably better choice than second dock to the south as it is closer to the heads/showers and staff are around all the time. Also, a mini cruise ship tied up to the second dock while we were there and stream of passengers from the ship did not help privacy for boats docked there.

The heads/showers were acceptable, just barely. One of the four was always locked, one shower was more of a drizzle than shower, and the second morning there was no hot water.

Tisbury Wharf is a five to ten minute walk from restaurants in town. Looking at some of the other marinas in town, I felt Tisbury Wharf was less jammed in -- some of the marinas encourage rafting and they are packed.

We enjoyed Martha's Vineyard -- there is a superb bus system that takes you all over the island and the buses stop anywhere to pick you up if you wave them down. Touristy for sure but lots of great restaurants, good stores, neat sightseeing places like Gay Head, and endless beaches. Tisbury Wharf was a pleasant place to dock and we will book there if we return.

Very happy at Tisbury Wharf for Many years!, 2011-10-19
Captain: , Hyannis (10)

We have been going here for many years. It has always been a very welcoming and a fun place. A short walk to town and restraunts very convenient! The people are great and we always have a great time. Bathrooms are very clean and secure.

Big Mistake Booking here, 2011-08-17
Captain: , Clinton, CT (10)

Please do not book a slip at this marina -- there is nothing good to be said about this place.........The staff, if you can find someone ......... is completely usless, as well as extremely rude and unfriendly. The facilities/amenities are dismal, at best. Showers/Restrooms are located a far distance from the "fixed pier" dockage, and are minimally maintained. Trash recepticles are available, however not at all convenienlty located. There are NO pincic tables or grills available (we were specifically misled about this at the time of booking). Overall this was not a pleasant experience at all --- Will not be returning in the marina -- EVER, which is unfortunate, as the island itself is a great place.
