Bathrooms were under construction and only one available. First time using Dockwa and not impressed with the system.

Marina Response:
Sorry to hear that you had a problem using DOCKWA, if you ever need assistance using the application you can reach out to company and they can assist or the marina would be happy to help as well, since this is the preferred application that most marinas use now. We apologize for the bathrooms under construction as well, our bathrooms were in pretty rough shape so we needed to get them renovated to give our members a better experience at the marina. The project should be complete within the next month and both bathrooms will be up and running and looking great. Safe Travels

Great attentive staff. Facilities not so great but being renovated. Marina NOT in a sheltered area so quite a bit of movement felt from inlet and passing boats. Super close to a gorgeous Publix (5min walk). I would go back because it’s well located.

Great staff- very helpful and accommodating. The marina is undergoing improvements and will be even better. The location is a half mile walk to Publix, and a 1.5 mile walk to the ocean beaches. The general area of Riviera Beach is not that nice, but we will definitely come back to this marina!

Great staff. Girls in the office are nice and helpful. Poor docks. Overpriced facility. Non floating docks and I am tired of adjusting mooring lines 4 times a day for 3.50 per foot. All docks open to all winds and wind waves, don't give any protection. Found huge cockroach 🪳 in my laundry 🧺. Probably after drying. Do i want to come back? No. Better to be at anchor. Sorry. Try better.

Marina Response:
We appreciate your stay at New Port Cove marina. We are glad you enjoyed our staff. I apologize for the configuration of our docks, unfortunately that's something we can't change along with our docks being open to the elements. We also apologize for the roach, this is the first we have heard about a problem like this but we will be sure to address it. Safe travels!

Good People here at the Marina. Plenty of help docking. I have a 40' Sailboat drawing 5'. The privately maintained channel was plenty deep. 1' above low tide on 12/1/23 - I saw 9'5" and above for depth.

Dockage is good but the restrooms and showers are in poor shape. Tiles falling off the wall and no air conditioning… Not the normal quality of a Safe Harbor marina…

We stayed for two nights. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Grounds and docks were well kept. Although the men's restroom/shower was generally clean, it was apparent that it wasn't serviced while we were there and neither were the dock trash cans emptied during our stay. Maybe they were just short staffed at the time. We would stay there again.

The slip was fine. We badly needed a pump out. New boat to us and unable to do manually Only able to pump Out half as your equipment didn’t have enough suction Deck hands very polite and friendly but I don’t think they knew how to use pump out

We had a great stay at New Port Cove Marina. We had only planned to stay 4 nights but ended up staying for almost two weeks due to weather. Trying to cross over to the Bahamas. The staff is terrific, especially Shelly. The restrooms and shower are very clean and the marina overall is very quiet. There is a Publix within walking distance and a Boat Owners Warehouse within walking distance. Great view of Peanut Island and all the huge mega yachts that go by. You will be able to dingy over to Peanut Island and swim and snorkel. There is also great snorkeling at the base of the bridge, east side.

This is a working marina - mostly dedicated to rack storage and freedom rentals. You can’t get to fuel dock or pump out as a result. Also very busy with charter boats. They are nice people but like they can’t even direct you in to the slip. They told me not to take the marked channel but there is no other good way in to the marina. It’s all very chaotic.

Marina Response:
We are glad you enjoyed our staff, we are deeply committed to serving our boaters. We apologize for the confusion on the directions to your slip. We will utilize your feedback as a training opportunity with our staff members to ensure that clear directions are given moving forward. Our marina is a very unique and busy marina with the occupancy of commercial boats and dry-slips we have on property. With the amount of boats that we haul and launch on a daily basis, and the small amount of dockage we have, the fuel dock and pump out area can be tight to get to at times. We are working on solutions to fix this. We value your feedback and appreciate your business.

We have stayed here 2x over a 4 yr period and both times successful stay . Shelly helped us with our ever moving check-out date. Jumped to West End Bahamas from here. Boat stores in walking distance . Laundry on site . Lots of activity on docks with boat club and day charters but that’s good! People enjoying boats.

We received a nice welcome. As a transient we choose our slip stays based on amenities with the basics being fuel and pump out. There are so many boats there and not enough water to park them all. This meant no pump out and we chose to go elsewhere to purchase our fuel. We did stay the night but won’t go back.

Worst stay ever in a marina. Dock hands tied up my boat with no spring lines to keep it off the dock and also positioned so I could not connect power & I swung the bow around to accomplish that but not any closer to the front concrete pier. I left for about 24 hrs to visit and stay with a friend only to return to a damaged boat where the front hit and scraped on the pier. A neighbor reported it and they moved the boat back but did not adjust the power cords which stretched to the point of shorting out one plug. I also lost a fender during this event. Attempts to discuss damage with mgt 3 times went unanswered. In addition the shower was gross both dirty and the shower curtain was torn and moldy. This is no “Safe Harbor” My damage likely totals over $2K so there is not a rating low enough - I could not put in a zero.

A working marina with various charters coming and going. Concrete docks. Not a top level marina (like Old Port Cove) but costs a bit less, too. Neighborhood is borderline. Staff ok

The power post for our slip was dead. We used the one next to us and we had high voltage spikes through the night. We are notifying the general manager. The onshore facilities are nice but the power posts all look in need of updating.

Marina is nice and quiet. Close to the ocean but protected. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice area for walking our dog - once we got him onto the dock. There is significant 3-4 foot tide here and we were on the fixed concrete pier - challenging to get 11 year old golden retriever on and off the boat. We would definitely come here again. 6/16/22 - diesel was $6.00. Fast wifi. Overall very good - would have been a 5* for us except getting the dog on and off.

Never responded to my request. This shows the consideration for their customers! Seems like ALL Safe Harbor Marinas have a poor employee attitudes. They must treat their employees terrible!

Marina Response:
Safe Harbor cares deeply about our Members satisfaction. We sincerely apologize for the poor experience you received and the lack of communication. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please give us a call personally next time you are in the area so we can ensure you have nothing but the best experience.

We liked this Marina and it’s facilities, but there are a few down sides. The fuel dock is situated in a place where the boats that belong to the boat club was docked. We had to get them to move their boats so that we could get to the dock. Also there’s not too much within walking distance to eat at. The Publix and Walgreens however are very close.

This is more of a working Marina. Should not be a Marina for transients. Safe Harbor should really remove their name. Pulled in and we were told no room on fuel dock. We were hoping fill up. We were told we couldn’t pump out. The docks have no lights so be very careful at night. Bathroom facilities were barely ok. We really had an awful stay here. Coming from Safe Harbor in Ft Pierce (Amazing), it was alarming at the difference. Transient Beware

Called to advise that we were arriving late, they were dismissive and said "oh, we were just leaving, we thought you weren't coming. Let me see what I can find." after a long hold, they sounded like they were doing me a favor by "finding" the slip that I had pre-paid for. Directions to said slip were a bad joke, condition of the slip was terrible. If this is what "corporate marinas" offer, skip them all.

Their customer service was amazing. We always used floating docks in the past and had a hard time figuring out how to tie on a concrete one. Josh came out and showed us how to tie in and provided an extra line to secure the boat. He gave us some ideas on places to fish if the open water was too rough for us and made the overall experience great.
