As an Island, Martha’s Vineyard is well accustomed to greeting visitors who arrive by sea. Many towns offer mooring, marina, launch and fuel service. Towns are situated close to harbors and mariners will find a wonderful variety of shops, restaurants and services within easy walking distance. Our waterways are well charted yet riddled with shoals. If you do not have current charts or would like more information about our waterways, you may want to check out the great resources provided by NOAA’s Data Explorer.
