We came to Sunset Bay for the sunset and the restaurant (Local 02045) and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful spot, the docks are secure and quiet, the marina staff are very helpful and professional -- and the restaurant is great with that great deck to watch the sun go down. We appreciated the dock hand showing us to our slip and helping us with the docking and tie up. He also helped us find and connect to an available working electric outlet. One thing: the Dockwa amenities list includes "pumpout at the fuel dock", but, when we arrived, we learned that there are NO pumpout facilites at the marina which was a big surprise for a Safe Harbor marina. As a result, we had to spend a little over an hour cruising back to the Hingham Harbormaster pumpout dock in the Hingham Inner Harbor and then back to the marina. It very nearly caused us to arrive later than closing time which could have led to real problems in finding our way to a slip for the night. Dockwa needs to CHANGE the listing of amenities to remove "pumpout facilities" from the list. But we had a great evening, great dinner, beautiful overnight, and even walked up A Street the next morning to the Dunkin (in Tedeschi's) to get breakfast which we ate on the seawall at the east end of A Street on beautiful Nantasket Beach. Its a great neighborhood for waking around. We will definitely return.

Reservation process was quick and easy. Instructions for arriving were clear and accurate. The staff was very responsive and helpful. After telling me our slip assignment, they met me at the slip to assist with docking. The marina facilities are clean. Lots of help at the fuel dock and with pumpout. A great place in a great location.

Making the reservation through Dockwa went perfectly! The harbormaster messaged me with my mooring number and location so I was able simply to go directly to it without having to be escorted by the launch. Clear instructions on dinghy tie-up location and procedure were very helpful. Always a treat to be in beautiful Marblehead Harbor!

The folks were quite accommodating and responsive. We were on the new beautiful face dock -- great spot! The only issue was that the electric pedestal nearest us did not have a 30-amp outlet -- both were 240v outlets so we had to move along the dock closer to one that did have the 30-amp connection. We really like the convenience of Hawthorne Cove to downtown Salem while being away from the noise and bustle of Pickering Wharf. Very quiet at night -- the "Eagle" Coast Guard ship was docked next door for the weekend -- Nice tour!

Constitution Marina never disappoints. Great dock help tying up, beautiful rest rooms/showers; such a great neighborhood; pool for kids; deck with grills and picnic tables under cover; so close to North Station and the North End. And Dockwa makes making a reservation so quick and easy. This time, unexpected bad weather kept residents on their slips Friday, and the slip reserved for our friends was not available. They drove to tje marina to meet us instead, returned home on Friday evening and sailed in to a slip on Saturday. CM made the best for us under the circumstances. Thank you, Sebastian.

Friendly, attentive staff. Nice facilities. So convenient. The way to stay in Plymouth, especially on a calm, warm evening - on a cool slip.

Dockwa reservation worked great. Dockmaster guided us to our slip professionally. Docks are great. Showers and rest rooms are new and clean but a very long walk from the slips. Heavy commercial and recreational fishing use of the marina means lots of boat engine noises, beginning at 4:30 am. Dock attendant went above and beyond in bringing a bag of ice to our dock for us so we didn't have to walk all the way. The Pilot House restaurant was great for dinner and the outside bar area on the lawn was wonderful, with great live music.

Very friendly and helpful folks. We arrived a bit early on a very windy day and the dockmaster was able to accommodate us and help us into our slip in the wind. The facilities are first class and clean. Macdougalls' is so convenient to everything and it is great to have Holiday Cycles just across the street for renting bikes. A truly delightful stay.

Great help at the fuel dock. The person there led me to our slip even thougb, at 4 pm, there was noone around in the office. We got the gate code from our slip neighbor just before he left for the day, otherise we woukd have been stuck without a way onto our dock when we left to YC to go to dinner. But we love PIYC and Onset and have been coming every year for more than 25 years.
