We had no issues with the actual service or mooring that we were on, our issue is with the astronomical price they charge for mornings and the horrific smell. The launch service is included which is great and the amenities are very nice, but when the wind blows across the barrier wall the smell of bird poop is nauseating. It was so horrific that we had to close up all of our windows and decided to leave the mooring and anchor out a ways further away from the break wall filled with birds. I understand that they can’t change the birds, but for this reason alone we would not return. Just way too stinky
We had an absolutely amazing experience at Dolphin. We were at the dock for nearly 2 weeks and every day there was a wonderful experience. All hands were on deck as we arrived to assist with lines and the dock hands there all actually know what they are doing which is rare! Having complimentary coffee delivered to the boat in the morning is the most lovely way to start off the day. The owner Chris is INCREDIBLE and helped us whenever he needed assistance or had any questions. They gave us maps and showed up where to ride bikes and great places to take the dinghy to so there was plenty to keep us busy and happy there even for a long stay. Could not recommend this marina enough. Favorite marina we have been to while cruising all summer without a doubt. Do not miss this marina as you cruise through Maine. Thanks for everything guys!
Amazing mooring lines that were long and thick. Made us feel very comfortable on the mooring even though we are a 150,000 lb boat. We were able to attach the mooring line right to our cleat instead of needing to attach another line to lengthen it. Dinghy dock close by, although it always was very full we were able to get a spot. Easy trash and cardboard recycling. We had mail sent to them and easily picked it up even on a weekend. Very close to town, maybe a 5 minute walk and close to mount Battie for some hiking.
Nice little marina. We were assigned the ball closest to the entrance which we really liked since we are a bigger boat. Made for easy access and exit. We just came in for a night to sleep and drop off some garbage, no complaints. We do have a very tall bow so picking up the mooring line was a bit of a struggle but most boats would have no issue
