About


Previously known as a Brewer Yacht Yard facility, Onset Bay Marina is now proudly owned and operated by Safe Harbor Marinas after the two companies merged in 2017. Onset Bay Marina is a full-service facility offering slips, moorings, racks/valet, storage, and transient service. We provide a relaxing transient stopover for those boaters passing through the Cape Cod Canal. We are just a sextant's throw from Cape Cod and the Islands. A nice place to visit for adults and kids, Onset Bay Marina offers unmatched services and facilities. We are the leader when it comes to refinishing with the Awlgrip and other fine painting systems and are experienced with all phases of structural and cosmetic fiberglass repairs from swim platforms to cockpit extensions. We have a fully equipped mechanical shop staffed with factory-trained technicians in gasoline & diesel engines and outdrives.

Approach


Enter Onset Harbor by exiting the Cape Cod Canal at Marker green #21 (Stone Pile Marker). 100 Yards Beyond is Green Can #1. Go between marker 21 & can #1. Follow the channel until you reach Green Can #11. Turn approximately 90 degrees to Starboard towards our fuel dock (Look for the rectangular 'Fuel' sign atop the dockhouse).

Dealing with bad weather, I needed a marina with short notice and a late arrival. Roland was able to accommodate me even though the marina was full and busy with fall haul outs. The facilities were new and clean and the Dockwa app made booking easy.

Marina Response:
We were very happy to be able to provide you a safe stay! Come back and stay with us again soon.

We love stopping at this marina because of it’t location to the Canal. Diesel fuel prices are some of the lowest around, and include Vavetech. Showers are nice and convenient. Always enjoy being greeted by Roland. He is always pleasant, calm and more than willing to help with anything he can. Thanks for all you do......

Stayed at Onset bay coming and going from RI to Maine. Great and convenient spot right off the canal. Quiet peaceful moorings, friendly and helpful staff, and very fair prices for fuel, ice, and moorings. Clean bathrooms and showers (yeah!) and a safe place to be in a storm. We'll be back.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the glowing review and for choosing Onset Bay Marina! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed our team and facilities. Clean bathrooms and showers are a "must have" in our book :) Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

We were only in Onset overnight, before going through the Cape Cod Canal in the morning. I appreciated the email several days before our arrival with details about the Marina. Also got an email with our mooring assignment. The dock staff were friendly and competent, and got us on our way quickly.

Onset Bay Marina is a very picturesque, recently re-furbished facility with very welcoming staff in manager Roland and dockmaster Alyssa. They go out of their way to make your experience a personalized pleasure. Onset is a little jewel that is off the main track and worth the visit. Two thumbs up!

Just Spent two night at Onset Bay Marina on very short notice and the stay was great! The Dockmaster Alyssa could not have been more helpful. I pulled into the fuel dock due to severe weather and by the time I was done filling up she already had a slip for me. All of the other dockhands had were friendly and helpful with local info and catching my lines. I look forward to staying there next year as well!

Roland and Alysa are great! Easy dingy row from mooring field. Nice 1/2 mile stroll through local neighborhood to down town area. Laundry mat, country store with everything you will need including wine/beer/booze, numerous restaurants Stay here at least twice a year. Always nice. limited current makes dingy to/from docks easier. On approach be careful not to confuse the canal green with your smaller #1 green- could be a rocky mistake.

Great, convenient stop at south end of Cape Cod canal. Roland, the marina manager, and his dock hands were knowledgeable and helpful. Minimum amenities at the marina and in town. Fuel and pump out and WORKING wifi were a plus. Would definitely stop here again if it fit our float plan.

After coming in for fuel, we took a mooring on a Thursday night. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The choice of having 87 or 89 octane gasoline was rare. The fuel dock is easy to access and there is fresh water for wash down. They don't have a launch service but the Town of Onset launch was pretty convenient.

Sailed up from Newport and stayed at the marina waiting for the morning tides into the CCC. Fabulous in every way. Highly communicative with us when inbound on Dockwa. Stopped for fuel ($2.709 for Diesel on 8/3/17), the hopped over to our slip. They put us (48' sailboat) on a T-head. Marina has clearly had a lot of recent improvements (docks, fuel, etc). Way more help than we expected tying up. Cute town...bit of a walk in, but a few places for dinner, ice cream, etc. Would definitely stop again if the opportunity presented.
