Visiting Yachtsman Services


Helot, the EYC's club launch, is available most day light hours serving members and visiting yachtsmen from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Please contact the launch on VHF channel 72, or by calling the Edgartown Yacht Club front desk at (508)-627-4361. Please note your mooring number and general location to ensure prompt service.

The Town of Edgartown also offers launch service through OldPort Launch, which can be reached on VHF Ch. 68. Please contact OldPort directly for hours as they change seasonally.


Visiting Yachtsman may use the EYC's dinghy dock, which is located on the main clubhouse South floats, nearest the town docks. Dinghies must be registered in the reception office immediately upon arrival. Motors should be left in the down position to prevent damage to other vessels.


Moorings can be reserved directly through the Edgartown Harbormaster using the DOCKWA app.

Wash Down Barge

Located diagonally across the channel from Green Channel Marker #9 is a floating water barge secured by two ball-shaped blue moorings on either side. It is free to use, accessible 24-7 on a first-come, first-serve basis, and equipped with two hoses. Vessel can tie up on either side of it.

Pump Out Service

Edgartown Harbor offers free pump-out service to all vessels in Edgartown waters via a pump-out boat that will pull alongside. To request a pump-out, hail “Edgartown Pump-out” directly on VHF Ch. 74. You do not have to be on board at the time of a pump-out.


Block ice can be purchased during business hours at Prime Marina located on North Wharf next to the Harbormaster office at 1 Morse Street. Ice can also be purchased at any of the package store or tackle shop in town .


The anchorage area is located in the outer harbor across the channel from the lighthouse and to the port-side of Red Nun #8 along the Chappaquiddick shoreline. It is serviced by the launch, well protected by Chappy's bluff from the light, prevailing southwest breeze, and all sand on the bottom making for easy holding. Vessels anchoring must be out of the channel and swim zones and all engines must be shut off 150-feet and less from shore. Anchorage in Katama Bay is only open at the harbormaster’s discretion when strong winds from the North/Northeast are present. Please hail the Harbormaster on VHF Ch. 74 to inquire about the status.
