Jackie answered when we called and was friendly and helpful. Dave at the fuel dock was friendly and also very helpful. Was great seeing him on the dock after being underway for so many days. To have his assistance coming into fuel dock felt like a treat. Michelle was wonderful getting us settled at the end of a dock for our overnight. We showered and did laundry, very nice facilities :) Then had dinner at the Marina's Surf Rider Restaurant, was delicious. A quiet calm night at dock and a peaceful set out the next morning getting under way. Many thanks to the teamwork at this wonderful Marina.

I own a 35 year old wood sportfish boat that needed some repairs to the hull, keel, sea chest, as well as some new through hulls, bottom paint, running gear cleaned, new shaft seals, hull, teak redone, etc. The boat was there over a month. Everyone at the yard was very friendly, professional and did a great job from the office staff to all the people in the yard. Craig Messick lead the team and provided us with the guidance necessary to continue with our preservation of the Tiffany 56' Miracle. Thank you!

We had a very good experience at SH Bluewater. We had a mechanical problem that required a haul and a couple of days on the hard. Everyone that we came in contact with was pleasant and helpful from Suzann (service writer), Craig (service manager, I think), Derrick (travel lift and yard master!) to Daryl (mechanic). Thank you all! We'll be back for sure.

I want to thank the entire staff at Safe Harbor Bluewater. The entire staff went above and beyond to assist in a time of need. We had a last second emergency during transit and needed to find safe harbor for the night; no other marinas in the area were able to assist. Safe Harbor Bluewater worked with us and made it happen. Great communication, teamwork, customer service, and hands on all around. Would absolutely recommend them.

I had a fantastic experience at S.H. Bluewater! Brought my boat into the yard for a variety of punch list items and the entire team was top notch! My primary contact, Frank, was great! Frank went above and beyond in managing all the various tasks while keeping the boat clean, protected and, most importantly, keeping me fully updated on the progress via text, pics and phone calls. I really enjoyed working with Frank and the team and wouldn't hesitate sending others to work with Frank and the S.H Bluewater team for service.

It’s always a pleasure to stay at Safe Harbor Bluewater in Hampton. The staff is incredible, ready to help with what ever you need. Amenities are first rate. No current and well protected from the wind, fuel docks and Surfrider restaurant a few steps away. Bikes available and grocery store just down the street. I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else when in Hampton.

It was annoying to not have any assistance tying up, when we arrived at the marina. We waited over 1/2 hr, settling in. It was more irritating to have to chase down a dock hand on the other side of the marina to obtain restroom access info, wifi code, etc. When I found the Dock Master, he did apologize, but with an excuse (busy with another boat that had also been towed in, losing its shaft, taking on water), and isn't it lucky it wasn't as bad (our fuel issue)? Enuff. I did call before we left stating we were about to shove off, inquiring about buying ice. She told me to pull into the fuel dock but never asked if we needed assistance. Our 51' overall sailboat was being blown off the dock making collection of lines for 2 people , 1 needed at the wheel, awkward at best. Not entirely sour grapes however, we enjoyed 2 good dinners at the SurfRider restaurant!

People make the difference and the Dockhands were all great, beginning with our pumpout and then helping us get settled at the dock. The Water Taxi to downtown Hampton was fun and again, the Dockhands did a great great job as tour narrators coming and going. Met plenty of pleasant people on the docks and our puppy met plenty of friends as well. Great place.

Excellent marina, helpful dockhands, clean and nice bathroom facilities, and laundry room with free laundry! Great restaurant on site. We were invited to the monthly social, which was so nice! Won a Safe Harbor hat in the raffle and enjoyed delicious pulled pork and chicken and had a wonderful time chatting with members and fellow transients. Wish we could be a Safe Harbor member, we love all the Safe Harbor marinas, but home port is Havre de Grace. Would love to see an associate membership for those of us who sail the Bay, or at least a 'tour' T-shirt with all the Chesapeake Safe Harbor marinas on it. Will definitely be back.

We found this easy-to-access marina to be very well run and friendly. Dockmaster Brandon was a great help while we were docking, and then he gave us a ride to town in the marina’s launch. We were disappointed the on-site restaurant was closed, but we did fine in town. Took an Uber back. Before we got underway the next morning we got a pump out and topped off the water tank, and the fellow who helped us was friendly and efficient. We would stay at Bluewater Marina again, no question.

My wife and I own Grand Banks Eastbay 38. Contacted Staff at Bluewater Hampton reference raw water system concern. Technician was sent to our boat within 2 days ( They actually ask when I would be at boat. Said to call day before I would be there). We have utilized many boatyards in Tidewater and Deltaville areas but The Bluewater tech, Daryl and his daughter/technician Mia are 2 of the most overall knowledgeable/skilled boat techs I personally have come across in over 15 years of boat ownership. A great team that gets to the point and gets the work done. They initially diagnosed the issues, recorded (video and photo's) their findings and gave recommendations for service. Their service and attention to detail is above and beyond normal and I fully intend to call Bluewater for our future service needs. I would also like to commend the office staff at Bluewater for the quick response and support to their techs. Other yards should certainly follow the lead of this local organization in meeting ( exceeding) customers expectations. James

A little disappointed. We were put in a 60ft slip with short finger docks which made it extremely difficult to impossible for us to moore correctly the pilons were too far aft to get a line on. We were not given the bathhouse codes or WiFi log on although the dock master said he would have the dock hands bring them. For the price we paid we do not feel it was value for money spent!

Very nice facility. Will definitely return. Rich, the dockhand answered us on VHF and met us at fuel dock. Very nice long fuel pier. He gave me the slip assignment and met us there. He was knowledgeable and quick to get us safety in our slip. Rest of staff, including manager Dave, was very friendly to give us local knowledge about places to visit. The restrooms and showers were clean and modern with the refreshing pool close by.

The marina and all it's employees are great. Had some stuff delivered prior to arrival and Anita and David took care of my stuff with kid gloves, and it was all there waiting for me when I got there. Dock hands were very helpful getting boat tied up, even went on boat next to our slip to throw a line around the piling for our bow line (we were much shorter than the piling took into account for). Restrooms were clean and functional and accessible. Docks were sturdy floating docks. However, the restaurant has taken over the pool. There's a sign that says the pool is for registered marina guests only, but there were others (a family of about 6 comes to mind) that also used the pool. Additionally, the restaurant is now making the rules for the pool. Since they are connected, you cannot bring any food or drinks from the boat to the pool. It all has to come from the restaurant. If the marina is going to have a pool for their guests, they need to keep the restaurant out the running of it. This is not the case at this location. They lose 2 stars for that, but the marina itself should get 5 stars.

Nice marina, nice people. Don’t ask them to work on your boat. Tech was friendly but the pricing was ridiculous. $800 labor for 4 man-hours work. The tech and a helper were on the boat around 2 hours. The bilge pump they installed won’t keep up with even one shower in use. So I can only assume the pump was too small as we never had this problem before. Other parts prices were also way overpriced.

We have stayed in marinas on three continents on our boat. This was the worst experience to date. I am certain that the staff have a different opinion from ours but this marina is a mess management wise. Their fuel dock staff are pleasant and competent. Their facility staff (showers, etc.) are simply the worst at customer service we have ever experienced. This is the only such review we have ever given a marina so, it could be us, or it could be staff of Bluewater. I am happy to provide my version of their deficiencies if you are interested.

We required a tow into the marina on May 5th 2022. Our arrival was met by David and a staff member. Together they easily maneuvered us into a slip. While we waited to have the transmission repaired, we gratefully accepted and appreciated the kindness and guidance of Jackie, from the marine office. Not only did she locate fresh soft shell crabs for us, she delivered them to the marina herself. They were excellent! The facility provided us with bicycles to ride to nearby stores, clean facilities, restaurant, laundry. We will be returning.
