DAILY & NiGHTLY TRANSIENT MooringS

  • $40 per day/night
    • There is no more free day-use on moorings -- day moorings are $40 just like overnights
    • Vessels seeking free moorage are welcome to anchor in the outer harbor anchorage, which is serviced by the launch
  • Maximum LOA of 65-feet
    • Must include all platforms, bow extensions, etc... in LOA as moorings are assigned by swing room
    • The Town of Edgartown is not responsible for any damage caused to vessels that understated their overall length
  • Check-in/Check-out time is 10:00 AM firm
    • Vessels past check-out will be flagged and charged $40 for an additional day, and in some cases, towed
    • We try hard to accommodate everyone so please communicate with us if you'd like to extend your stay
  • To request your assignment, hail 'Edgartown Harbor' on VHF Ch. 74 when entering the harbor. 
    • As a courtesy, before hailing us, please stand-by momentarily after tuning into VHF Ch 74 to ensure you're not stepping on an ongoing transmission
    • Due to high volume, turnover, and varying swing-rooms and currents, all reservations are assigned upon arrival based on LOA
      • We do not give priority based on the date of reservation request. Most reservations are requested on opening day (March 1), so it's a moot point at best 
      • If you are traveling with friends or prefer a specific spot, please make a note in the special requests. While we can't make any promises, we always actively try to keep cruises in close proximity and re-assign returning guests to their favorite mooring/section
  • Accommodations are only guaranteed to vessels with reservations, which can be made on our website or Dockwa's iOS & Android apps
  • Edgartown Harbor does not force rafting
    • Upon approval, vessels may raft with one additional vessel of equal or lesser length for a $20 rafting fee (not including catamarans)
    • Do not make a reservation for a smaller vessel and expect to be able to raft off a larger vessel. We'll try to accommodate, and if we can, it will likely be on a different mooring
