Open w/ some social distancing restrictions
DiMillo's Old Port Marina is located in the heart of Portland's Old Port. We are a two minute walk to 100 bars and restaurants, fresh meats and produce for provisioning, flowers, discount marine supplies, cultural activities, and great shopping. Also at the marina, you can enjoy a great meal aboard DiMillo's On the Water and consider a new or used boat purchase at DiMillo's Yacht Sales.
First class Marina with first class people there to help get you settled. Location is central to everything.
We loved being right in town. Literally. At first we had a small issue with the electric (We use (2) 50 amp lines) but that was rectified quickly. Excited about coming back next year!
Easy docking, close to everything downtown. Bathrooms were clean. WiFi didn’t work for the two nights we were there, kind of a bummer since we had some bad weather and would have been nice to use. Restaurant was very busy! We will definitely come back.
There are many things I like about this marina: (great deckhands, proximity to town and DiMillos restaurant). But for me, these good features or just overpowered by the fact that they do not have a working Wi-Fi system. They say they do but they don’t. Not one of my devices could connect, and the office had no help for me. I’m not a teenager. I’m a senior, but I use the Internet for financial transactions, posting photos to my blog, and streaming music and TV. None of it worked.
This is hands-down the must-stay place in downtown Portland. It is family owned and operated, and it shows with great service. I had the pleasure of meeting Chris DiMillo and he is great.
Access to town great, as was staff. BUT - on the flight path into Portland Int’l. Which was very active in afternoon. The W dock they put us on is also on the narrow fairway for lots of tour boats in and out all day into the evening. Advise a stern in to help avoid that noise and gawking. Finally, The Sabre MY next t to us was partying with around 10 people and music aboard past 1:30 AM. Asked them to hold down the noise, with no result.
Great downtown location, walk to everything. Clean facilities and helpful staff. A bit of rocking in basin from nearby ferry traffic.
People are great. Location is great—right downtown. However, we rolled constantly for 4 days. While I never expect much from marina wireless signals, this one was less than horrible. In addition, the fairway was extremely narrow, clearly not laid out for your typical 40-ish foot cruising sailboat.
This is a fabulous place. Staff is super helpful and pleasant. The weather crushed our plans for cruising further east and needed to stay an additional night and are happy we did. The staff even offered to work with us and find a new spot if we needed to stay a 3rd night. The location is very convenient if you wish to walk into town and explore. If you plan dinner, we can recommend DiMillos’s On The Water aboard the former ferry boat. Food is excellent and makes for a unique experience.
DiMillo's is the place. Right downtown - easy walk to just about everything Portland. Great people. Helped with fueling, pump-out, docking, information about the city (location of West Marine and Trader Joe's). A bit of rocking when something big passed by the dock and a narrow entrance into the fairway, but other than that perfect. Likely we will be back.
Katy was fantastic. Gave us a nice quiet slip on the west side.
Great location in downtown Portland. Wonderful restaurant. Very busy, large marina. Gated access to docks for security. Good communication.
For many years my wife and I headed "downeast" and rarely have missed a stop at DiMillos. The reasons are simple; its downtown location, its helpful dock crew, and the great offering of shops/ restaurants/ and attractions. We love being able to walk a short distance and obtain everything from incredibly fresh fish to specialty items for boat and home. Always a friendly stop as we travel the Maine Coast.
Having been a patron here for many years, I can tell you the level of service is exemplary. From the marina manager to the deck hands, we are treated with respect and kindness at all times. When we need a hand to grab a line or anything, someone is there with a smile. I’ve witnessed recently how a deckhand responded to adversity (a very rude customer), he called him sir about 5 more times than the customer deserved. This marina is an amazing spot for you to land. Portland is at your fingertips and the nicest people will welcome you.
Your company should distance itself from this place, They act with impunity maybe because they believe they are the only centrally located marina in Portland. They placed us at the front entrance of the marina that had ferry lines passing by at regular intervals rocking the boat uncontrollably all day until 9pm. They were completely apathetic to our complaints and requests for relocation were abjectly denied. Will never stay in this marina again! PS..They are also very strict on the cancellation clause regardless of sea conditions forcing shelter in place situations.
Very nice. Downtown.
Left our reserved slip for a few hours and when we returned they had put another boat into our slip even though our lines and hose were there all set up for an easy return docking.....not good....we then got put into a terrible slip behind a pier and pilings.
DiMillo's Marina has always bee a class operation and it didn't disappoint.
Had a great time in Portland at DiMillos.
Stayed during August while Covid -19 was in bloom. Would have enjoyed it more if the restaurant was Mormon the ball. When I first went up I asked about reservations as my husband has trouble walking distances. No reservations. But the girl said you can call 15 minutes before and we will give you an estimated time. Called she said come right up. I went up immediately and was told a 30-45 minute wait. Gave me number and we walked back to the boat. She said she would call when ready. No sooner had we walked down to the boat. My husband hobbling behind then the phone rings( possibly 3 minutes later). Table is ready now. We once again walk up(3rd time) and finally seated. Tried to use the door closet to the boat but the lady said no have to go all the way up front. Not very accommodating to an older gentleman who has issues with walking distances. Marina staff was great though!
Spent last 3 days at DiMillo’s waiting out tropical storm Isaias. They allowed us to utilize their fuel dock and stayed 24 hrs during the storm checking on vessels, setting fenders, and securing lines. Very impressive. Thank You Great access to a fantastic Maine town, Portland.
Great location and facilities! Right in the center of S. Portland Only issue was that the dock space they gave me was much too small for my boat!
Everything shipshape and Covid-safe.
Wifi was horrible. Pumpout (I was told) had been out for weeks. Slip was OK. Power and water were fine.
Terrific stay at DiMillo's Portland...marina manager Amanda is very responsive, Anna on the docks was helpful and friendly, the slips/bathrooms/facilities are clean and well-tended. But the exceptional part of this trip is that we were at DiMillos Kennebunkport on Friday, and accidentally left a credit card in the parking lot. Lane, the marina attendant there, not only called me to let me know, he drove up to DiMillo's Portland on Saturday to return it so we didn't have to stop in KBPT on our way home. You don't get that kind of customer service everywhere, that was a huge convenience for me, and indicative of how friendly and "above and beyond" the whole staff is there. We'll be back!
The staff was friendly and helpful. The heads were modern, well equipped and immaculate. It was nice to be close to downtown Portland and all the action. Portland is a great place to visit and we’ll be back again.
No yachtsman lounge. Only ONE shower and head for the whole marina, laundry in a closet with no space to sit or fold clothes, dock covered with bird droppings, noise and a hefty price tag. If they weren’t in the heat of the old down town district, they would be out of business!!
Complete service marina with great walking proximity to restaurants and everything Portland has to offer. Enjoy the nearby Islands as well.
The marina just in the center of old port. However the distance between different docks is rather small and slips rather narrow. So it is quite tricky to get in and out on 40 ft sail boat without bow thrusters. Staying on outside docks are out of question due to the passing boats and strong rolls. The marina more suitable for the power boats, rather than sail boats. The personal is very friendly and very helpful though. The bathrooms and showers are a bit of walk.
Docking sailboat with side wind always challenging. Help with dock lines was less than great. Fortunately owner of adjacent boat helped to fend off. WiFi reception on west dock was nonexistent. Location great for access to Portland.
Great marina with an awesome restaurant!
Always great stay - lost a trim tab actuator on trip up - the service crew jumped right on it had part overnighted had boat hauled and fixed in no time. Thank you Jason, Tony and Ron
A beautiful facility. Dock staff was very helpful in getting us settled on the dock. The location is very convenient to town and activities, yet quiet and comfortable for relaxing. Enjoyed dinner in the restaurant. Laundry facilities also allowed a quick service of sheets and towels. Will definitely visit again in the future.
Very accommodating and friendly staff.
Great marina and docks. Outstanding and helpful staff. Second year their WiFi didn’t work for us despite calling desk. Do wish they had 5g like the other top marinas. We come every year and always will.
Beautiful City, terrific Marina, friendly staff, in the heart of town.
You are located in a very busy harbor so lots of wakes. Slips are very tight, dock hands are not to much help, young kids with no boating experience, don"t follow instructions well. They don't answer the radio, you have to call them on cell phone. Facilities are clean and welcoming. Old Port is super.
Great facility, right in town. Facing the pier where Ziggy Marley & Steel Pulse played last night was a bonus!
Great people, a superb location and facility along with incredible weather make for a superior experience. Thank you to the entire staff.
Great help on the docks
Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Great location in the middle of a very happening city. If you want to enjoy Portland this is the place to be.
great marina and very helpful crew. However, the internet was not working
Friendly and professional
Portland is a great destination. Good shopping, great food, and Dimillos Marina is the place to stay. Staff are friendly and professional. The Marina is in a great location and very clean. I give it my highest recommendation.
We had a great couple of nights at Dimillos. The staff were Attentive & friendly & the location is perfect for getting around downtown Portland. Capt. Michael, M/Y MISS LIZA
+ accept catamarans, well maintained facilities, excellent showers, great location downtown, helpful staff - transient dock very exposed to wake and S winds, expensive rates.
Attentive friendly staff and professionally managed marina. Had a great overnight stay! Awesome location and all around nice docks and facilities. Will be back again soon!
Staff and location were teriffic
