If you are visiting Gloucester or passing through, make sure you allow enough time to play, stay and provision here. For over 50 years the Cape Ann Marina has been hosting seasonal and transient guests, that continue to make it a must stop on their itineraries.

Discover, explore, fish, beach, and dinghy around our shorelines and take in all it has to offer.

Located on the Annisquam River just inside Gloucester Harbor, protected from swells and weather exposure, we have everything you need right on site. The downtown, shopping, maritime sites, arts, attractions, museums, and walking areas are close by. Our year round Dockmaster and entire marina, service center, hotel and restaurant staff are dedicated to making sure to provide you with the best experience possible.  If you are coming from the North and Ipswich Bay, follow the scenic ride down the Annisquam River instead of going around Cape Ann. Check your chart and check the tides.

Our onsite restaurant, Mile Marker One Restaurant & Bar (and Igloos) is open year-round with lots of dining venues, drinks and to-go options, be sure to secure a table reservation and place your to-go order before arriving to insure how we can best accommodate you. 

Update for 2023… our northern seawall that hosts one of our (public picnic areas) has been completely renovated with pavement, parking and traffic flow.  New Hotel rooms have also been renovated and upgraded in case you or guests of your party prefer. A new Jr. Suite has been built with stunning views of both sunrise and sunset on the river.  2023 is also Gloucester’s 400th birthday, and events are planned. Stay tuned – join our transient boater email newsletter list, and follow us on social too.

If you are looking for a short term tie up, please inquire with our Dockmaster or Dock staff that can be found on our Fuel Dock.  We monitor Channel 10 VHF and look forward to catching your lines!
