Taylor Point Marina is ideally located no matter where you’re headed on the water. Situated between the head of Buzzards Bay and the Cape Cod Canal, the marina includes 148 slips, a fuel dock, a pumpout station, seasonal public bathrooms, year-round private bathrooms and showers, and a marine store. A large double ramp with a deep drop-off and floating docks at both sides allow for easy and safe launching, even for large vessels. There is a fee to use the launch ramp, which includes vehicle and trailer parking in the marina’s large lot.
Moorings and slips can accommodate vessels up to 50 feet. Boaters should visit the Town of Bourne website to join the marina wait list. Temporary tie-up space, and transient moorings and slips, are also available; contact the marina office to arrange for space.
Habitats & Wildlife
The shoreline around Taylor Point Marina is largely developed, bordered by suburban neighborhoods and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. However, head north through the Cohasset Narrows and you’ll reach Buttermilk Bay, a shallow, protected body of water where you can anchor for fishing, swimming, and birdwatching. Taylor Point Marina is also just a quick ride away from striper fishing hotspots like Wings Neck and Mashnee Flats.
Just south of the marina, many large ships and barges travel through the Cape Cod Canal between Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay. The canal is a corridor for wildlife, too, from harbor seals to sportfish to birds like ducks, gulls, and osprey.
