Dolphin Marina is a great place to stop. Lots of amenities inc. fuel, self pump out station, great shower, laundry, 2 restaurants-one is inexpensive takeout style and the other a nice full service. They offer free use of bicycles and kayaks. The excellent staff are very helpful and very conscious of social distancing during this covid time. Only thing lacking is a grocery store but in normal times they offer a courtesy car to get to the store a few miles up the neck. The complimentary blueberry muffins and coffee delivered to the boat each morning are a lovely extra.

They wouldn’t take transients in launch or let us use showers. Zero amenities but full price which is more than any other moorings around here. When we called to ask for a mooring they never mentioned that they weren’t fully operational. They said it was stated on Dockwa but it was nowhere on registration form, which is all I saw. Not impressed with BPYC or Dockwa. Also the moorings are so far out it was extremely rolling. Not a good night. I understand the need for Covid restrictions and why showers might not be open but a launch with masks and hand sanitizer seems doable. But the biggest thing is to tell people before they book. Anchorage there is actually better than mooring if you get nothing with it. You can get closer to land to take dog ashore without a motor.

Marina Response:
The Biddeford Pool Yacht Club is a private Yacht Club who allows transients, guest privileges for a nominal fee. During these trying times we have made changes to our guest policies in an attempt to keep our community safe and secure. These policies are clearly posted on our Dockwa profile and our web site. If you called the club and were not told of the policy changes for this season, that was a mistake and we apologize. However we will not apologize for being cautious and taking the necessary steps to protect our members, staff, transient guests and our community.
