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.
Great place to tuck into while transiting the Canal. Good protection, great facility, nice people! Been stopping in here for years, highly recommended!
Best staff on the canal Service is fantastic My west canal favorite
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.
Great people, great facilities, and great location
We have stayed at Onset Bay Marina twice, in July and in September. We find the people friendly and facilities are clean. The fuel dock is easy to access and Dock Master Roland is very helpful. We will definitely recommend this marina to our cruising friends.
Great hospitality, felt very welcomed. Staff very helpful. Could not ask for better customer service. Great spot to stay at, for a stopover, or a to time a canal trip. Even had dog cookies! Definitely a keeper, we will be back. Great job by Roland and his crew.
Friendly staff. I was late in arriving and the gas dock attendant stayed until I was moored and provided information about the marina.
Staff was the friendliest we have met all season. Extremely helpful and welcoming. Email received the day before with instructions was nice. Hope to return next season.
Couldn't have been better! Roland and his crew are first class, and were extremely helpful in all aspects of our overnight visit. Great little town within an easy walk from the marina. I highly recommend the Onset Bay Marina.
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......
The dock master Roland, and Alyssa were very helpful both on the dock, and in giving us information about the local area including the towns launch service.
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.
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.
Great place. Staff and the people there were great.
Had a terrific overnight at Brewers Onset Bay Marina. The staff and especially Roland Murphy were great. We'll come again!
Vet quiet and nice marina. Great service at the fuel dock. Beautiful setting. Town and great walks just a dinghy ride away with two good dinghy docks, one in Town.
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.
We loved ! Roland and Alyssa were so helpful and always available. Can't wait to come back next year.
This is our second time visiting Onset. This is a wonderful small and quiet marina. The crew was friendly and helpful for any of our needs.
Pleasant stay, with helpful staff. easy in and out to CC canal, good fuel prices. Will stay again.
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.
Quiet peaceful marina with very friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of assistance docking and navigation to marina. Would definitely stay here again.
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.
Brewer Onset Bay Marina was a perfect spot to stay overnight! The marina staff were friendly and helpful! The shops and restaurants were close by as well. Will be back.
Improved facility since Brewer purchase. Some confusion with dockage request, which was straightened out upon arrival. New fuel docks and other amenities. Able to call directly to marina staff with inquiries about dockage facilities.
Great marina, great dock hands nice,social spot
Early in the season, just opening. Walked to town for dinner.
