The shower temps on the Aqua lodge were turned down to just warm. Last week they were pleasantly hot. A $20 per night electricity surcharge is “ highway robbery!” We stayed here because of all the benefits not offered by the competition. There is no way a boat is using $20 per day. My beach house is only $40 per month on off season! I would urge the Corp leaders to eliminate that mis guided decision. Also, the threaten $50 replacement fee for a lost fob is unreasonable. The location and the staff are all outstanding. From the lady at the fuel dock to Dottie in the office to the young lady checking you in. The staff members exhibit an unparalleled friendly approach to the boaters’ needs. The upper corporate management needs to keep the exciting big picture and drop the nickel and dime approach to generate revenue. All the best, John, Ventnor, NJ

Colorado trailer sailor approved! I stayed there for about a month over December and we had an absolute blast. Marina staff was incredibly kind along with the seasonal and transient renters I met. Special thanks to Dottie, Fuel dock Rick, Cindy, Brian, Chris, Gene, and Tony who made me feel at home for so many weeks. Thanks again you guys and hope to make the trip back again this year!

Best marina yet, spent two nights there traveling from Key West to Biscayne Bay. Cindy in the office was very kind and informative. Chris on the dock went above and beyond. Would definitely recommend!

Very impressed …. Been with Safe Harbor for several years, and the facilities and staff were excellent. Just terminated with Safe Harbor BSM since repairs after Ian for the live aboard was pathetic. They could learn a lot from this marina in how to take care of their customers . Once again they earned every star and will see my business again in the future.

Our stay at Safe Harbor Marathon was great. Staff is cheerful, helpful and all around made our stay enjoyable. Excellent dockage, bar and restaurant, pool facing amazing sunsets. Real close to Key West. We were going to transient for a couple days on our way to key west with DejaVu our Hunter 290 but had to stay for a total of 8 days due to deteriorating weather brough by hurricane Nicole. Our only complain was the toilet paper that was pitiful!!!. I commented to management on this and was assured that they were aware of the situation and they were just waiting to run out of existing stock to replace with real TP. It is a no brainer... The extra expense on better TP is going to be offset by the savings in Hand Soap!!

Shower poor. Had on demand hot water, but so far from shower that it fluctuated between cold and scalding. And 30 amp shore power pedestal constantly tripped off. Had to borrow a 50 amp converter and hook up to a pedestal across the dock.

We had to stop here due to damage to the boat and we extremely grateful to the staff for getting us in and working with our ever fluctuating timetable. We were delayed in getting help for repairs due to Thanksgiving closures and the staff worked with us to figure things out. Facilities are great with a beautiful pool and excellent restaurant on site. Thank you again, we appreciate it.

We came to Marathon for repairs and re-rigging on our catamaran. We basically got stuck here waiting for work to be completed. What a marvelous place to be "stuck". We like it so well we may never leave - except for the occasional trips to Bahamas and other nearby spots. Love the wonderful friendly staff and the pool and facilities are fantastic. Also appreciate that they are always continuing to upgrade the facilities.

Jules is golden and everybody likes her. She has a nice mix of professional and being cordial. Dottie is a "B" and she drives business and me away. It's a shame she hasn't realized how to use SKILLS rather than her bad temperament to achieve what she sets out to do. She will tank this marina.

great place for the rv. nice pool. bath house is clean. floating docks are nice and fuel station is easy. staff was always great to work with. only complaint is a policy complaint. requiring full pay a year in advance is crazy. want to book my boat slip and rv for next year but 100% full pay is unfair.

We really enjoyed our stop here. For starters, we were met at the dock by an employee who pointed out our slip and took lines from us. That is always appreciated. The large floating docks meant there was no need to adjust lines repetitively. The fuel dock was easy to maneuver. The restaurant was BIG and it was great! I didn’t give five stars only because there were amenities that more “posh” marinas offer. We paid $190, which wasn’t cheap. We only paid $160 in Key West.

Marina Response:
Thank you for staying with us, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope you were able to enjoy the amenities including pool, restaurant, fitness room, lounge, 2 ship stores, outdoor grill/lounge area and laundry room. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Our 3rd year here & a friendly, well run operation. Susan does a great job, obviously cares about & is responsive to each & every boater. She is ably assisted by Jules, Cindy, JJ, Derek & the entire team. Great pool, clean, large laundry facility, good restaurant on site, weekly pumpout, nice docks & well run. What more can you ask for? We're looking forward to our next visit already! 4/28/22 update on leaving- at fuel dock Claudia was exceptional as we arrived early and at 6:45am she made sure we filled with diesel and were on our way. Helpful, efficient, friendly! Thanks to all, great stay, looking forward to returning!

I have been familiar with Safe harbor Marathon/Marathon Marina for over 20 years. It did win an award in 2018 but the condition/services since becoming a corporate facility have greatly diminished. The bathrooms were almost completely neglected for weeks until an outside cleaning service was hired. There used to be security with a closing gate which no longer is operable which allows anyone access at any time. The laundry facilities are deplorable as there are 3 washers and 2 dryers inoperable and the washers take over an hour and a half to do a 30 minute load. Only on two days a week are boats able to be hauled out as there is no one on the premises capable of this function. If there was an emergency I don't think one could get their boat pulled. There is a floating bath house that has been inoperable and no plans to fix other than to pull it out but no effort has been made. I have been given a plethora of excuses on all issues. Maybe it's corporate. I do like the staff as they are friendly and helpful. I apologize to any of the staff if this is a reflection on them. These issues have been ongoing for months with no rectification in sight.

Marina Response:
Safe Harbor cares deeply about our Members satisfaction. We sincerely apologize for the poor experience you received while at our Marina. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, as we are working towards bringing Safe Harbor Marathon to its very best. Please give us a call personally next time you are in the area so we can ensure you have nothing but the best experience.

Derek went above and beyond for us last week. My in-laws were coming into town and staying in one of the apartments on property. I got the key and checked out the room only to find that it had not been cleaned. In the time it took for me to drive to the airport and back he had cleaned the entire apartment from top to bottom! Considering he usually works in the office and it was a weekend so no housekeeper was working, I was absolutely thrilled that he was able to pull it off in such a short period of time. My in-laws enjoyed their stay at the marina and commented multiple times about how clean the room was. Thank you Derek for everything!

We booked 2 nights stay and halfway thru our first day, we liked it so much we booked a third night. Employees helped with docking at fuel dock and our slip; loved the saltwater swimming pool; next door to excellent restaurant; laundry facilities (dryers were great but washing machines were quite slow) . . . Price was not outrageous for the keys . . . People were very friendly. Canal heading toward our slip was pretty narrow - and quite shallow outside of canal, so a bit tricky getting into and out of slip, but location is close to Moser Channel. We would stay here again.

Very pleasant staff who got us set up with a slip with us arriving an hour after closing. Called me with my slip number and good instructions to it. Our stay was extended while we made some repairs and they were very accommodating. Slip was great with no power issues (30 amp). Showers were a little tight but clean and worked well. Definitely will stay again on our next trip to the keys.

Staff was fantastic!!! Since they we will be going under construction soon, there were only portable trailer toilets and showers. The adjaceny to the bridge does make it a little noisy, and being Super Bowl Sunday probably added to the noise. It is close walking distance to restaurants.

My wife and I were so pleased with Derek in reservations. He spent a great amount of time extending our stay at the marina so that we could assist a family member in Michigan. While we were at his office desk he managed to extend our stay and address numerous incoming calls. He did this all by being kind and helpful to each caller. We want to thank Derek for his professionalism with us. We and sure his other customers feel the same. Marathon Safe Harbor definitely hires competent hard working employees. Thank you, Courtney and Diana Blanchard

Great marina in Marathon near Seven-Mile Bridge. Nice, clean facilities including heated pool and spacious laundry room made this a good stop for our family after several weeks at anchor. Derek at the fuel dock was incredibly helpful upon our arrival, helping with lines as we pulled into our slip, providing all the information we needed to get around the marina or travel around town, and helping us with pump out. He was also very nice to my kids as they peppered him with questions. Great stop, and we can see why it can be hard to get a spot there!

Very bad experience. Still going on. Made a reservation on 28th July, to come in 29th, paid one day. Cancelled next morning due to heart problem, confirmed cancellation on telephone. Was told I would be charged one day. Fine. Then, I was charged two more days, total of three. $129 plus $258, after cancellation. The charge goes to Daniel Land, (702)250-1013. I called him. Quite rude, and slurred, finally admitted he was with Safe Harbor, and someone would call me back. Noone did. Since then, I have called Safe Harbor Marathon, formerly Marathon Marina, daily. i have spoken to three different people, all of whom “took” my information and said someone would call me back. Today, I have called three times, and left a message. This is not a good business situation. One employee said they have been having problems since bought out by the Safe Harbor group. Another had me hold on while she went to check to find the records. I urge you to be careful in any transactions with this company. 457pm 8/3/2021 I just got off the phone once again with Safe Harbor Marathon. I was able to reach them using a friends phone. I learned that they are having problems. They do not process credit cards, they are foing through a company names DOCKWA that actually processes the cards, and thus they have no way yet to refund unauthorized charges. They are understaffed, and are having other problems. Their office phone is (305) 743-6575.

We stayed here for a week. This was our second time here - last year for only 1 night. Great amenities -laundry, small gym, etc... All super clean. We did not need to use the shower facilities. We were on the fixed dock section - the docks are all in great shape. Pump out at every slip is handy. Really helpful and nice staff. Other marina guests were also very friendly - there's a really great vibe at this marina. Our slip had a terrific view of the sunset. Close to a bus stop for the Keys Loop. While a bit pricey for a 1 week stay, we would definitely come back!
