Elegant New England cottages and sandy white beaches provide a picturesque backdrop for Safe Harbor Onset Bay. Renowned for its preeminent refinishing and fiberglass shop, the well protected marina bestows convenient dockside amenities and easy access for cruising Cape Cod, Buzzards Bay, and the Islands.
The people were great. The Dockhand Tom went above and beyond to make sure we had a great visit including his favorite restaurant list. The docks excellent. The facilities were clean and well stocked.
Well maintained facilities. Easy in and out. Alyssa and crew are terrific, and make every effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable and you have everything you need. Great place!! Will be back.
Nice clean bathrooms. Men’s showers could use more hooks. A recycling bin should be added
This is a wonderful, well-run, Safe Harbor location. Alyssa and her staff were very helpful with docking and dining recommendations. Onset has a few good restaurants within walking distance as well as a small grocery store and good ice cream. We look forward to revisiting!
Great town, great marina, nice people!
September 2023 Our annual stop at Onset. Always a pleasure. They treat us like family. New boaters lounge is being built for 2024! Overall, great staff and facilities! July 2022 the Dock Master, helped us land our 34ft sailboat with an opposing wind. After fueling up, watering up and pumping out, we decided to stay in a slip for a few nights to wait out the upcoming storm. Again The staff assisted us docking into the slip, and tie ing our lines for the expected blow. Thank you for wonderful service!! Also the marina facilities are top notch and very clean. We will be back next year. The above is my comment from a few years ago. The service and the friendliness of Onset continues. They are such lovely people and very helpful. We had a wonderful stay at a well cared for Marina. I even got my laundry done! September 14-16, 2021 Every year we thoroughly enjoy our time at this marina. Roland, the dockmaster has always been very helpful. And the people on the dock have been great about handling lines and getting us in safely. This is a clean, well run marina. This was our third visit this year. Thank you to you all the Dock staff. Lynne and Steve
Tom was the best! Clear instructions on where to be. Helped us out with dinner reservations. Wonderful facilities. Would keep my boat here if they had room!
Great marina. Stayed first night on mooring, then one night on the dock. The new face dock is in excellent condition. The crew (especially Tom) were very helpful and informative (Tom gave us a list of local restaurants he recommends). Only negative is the fuel docks are down (fuel available at Point Independence Yacht Club). Onset Harbor is a great stop over point and Safe Harbor Onset is a great marina (even better if you're a Safe Harbor member).
The dock master Tom was friendly and extremely helpful. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic service. Can’t say enough good things
Great the staff is great
One of the best marinas for transient dockage. Staff is dependable, professional and cannot do enough for you! The restrooms and laundry areas were spotless. Short walk to nearby restaurants, plenty of ospreys to watch and a beautiful and peaceful place to be.
This place is beautiful. And safe harbor onset team has been outstanding. Making sure our experience was incredibly perfect.
Great marina. Onset is a beautiful and scenic town! Very friendly and helpful staff! The folks who work at this marina are extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We needed a safe harbor after experiencing some mechanical issues and we were welcomed and made to feel right at home. I would definitely recommend Safe Harbor Onset Bay.
Professional, courteous staff. Well maintained marina and great location. Alyssa, Tom and the team were very friendly and we enjoyed our stay.
My second review, same as the first! Very nice facility in a lovely location. Alyssa and Zach are most excellent and we plan to stop here again.
We have always had a wonderful experience at Safe Harbor Onset & this visit did not disappoint.The dock staff was welcoming & attentive to our every need from docking , inviting us to their SH member Luau that evening, offering Dock services to getting ice for us. Thank you for a great visit. We will be back & have already recommended to fellow boaters.
Great marina and great location. Everything was just right.
They need to note on their website that the fuel dock is not open. Fuel is a basic and important staple of boating and if you aren't selling it don't advertise it. Only spent a night. Wifi poor. Staff very friendly.
The dock hands at Onset Bay marina a second to none. Travis, Tom and Teagan were so professional, and so well schooled. Prior to leaving at the end of each day, they would stop by Reveille and ask if there was anything else they could do before they went home for the evening so as to make our stay very memorable and very positive. Congratulations to the office staff, and to Zack the Dock Master for bringing these fine young folks aboard as your dock team. The next time we are in this area again, we will certainly make it our business to stay at Onset Bay, Marina. Sincerely, Captain Tom (USCG Master), and first mate, Catherine.
Easy getting in & out. Staff very helpful & friendly!
We’ve stayed in great SH marinas up and down the coast, and the dock staff at Onset was hands down the friendliest and most helpful. Alyssa and Tom rocked it, made us feel so welcome and lent us a hand when friends suddenly showed up for a short visit. Alyssa has the best attitude and it’s contagious. Tom is so local, he prints out and shares his own recommendations sheet! - Jack and Caroline “Right Royal”
Wonder new face dock and great people as always. Stayed numerous time and looking forward to next visit.
Tom is really special. His associate Zack really adds to the team. Both are most helpful. Very polite, welcoming and eager to make our stay enjoyable. They are both great! and his team are great. It is nice to be welcomed by such a great team. Mechanics, office personnel and everyone we met are most welcoming. Thank you. Thank you
Great place. My favorite Marina, Stay there a few time a year. The Staff and the people there were great.
The hospitality was top notch! The one downside was our power went out one night. I would certainly return again!
Very very accomodating. We will return.
We only stayed one night but we were treated like family! Staff was amazing and couldn’t be more accommodating!
Great place to stay when coming through Cape Cod Canal. Alyssa L and her crew are VERY attentive and great to deal with. They are one of the best marina teams we have encountered .. Great job!
Alyssa and her team were awesome! The greeting and help at the dock was very welcoming. They checked on us (and other boats) before they left for the day! Alyssa was able to find, send and update Dockwa with our SH membership number … nothing needed on our end to do it. Highly recommend this newly expanded marina and can’t wait to come back in Sept!
Received a nice welcome from 3 dock folks! Tom went through all his area recommendations and it was so helpful as it’s our first time to this area. Quahog Republic was delicious! Thanks for having us! We hope to be back!
Friendly, polite dock staff, beautiful quiet location.
Excellent service all around!
Great marina and great staff
Very accommodating staff at this marina
Great crew, great location, great repair yard.
Friendly staff nice dock improvements
Great staff, great location. Manager located marine diesel for me to use. This is a well run facility
Excellent staff, very helpful and attentive, especially Tom. I had a call from Alyssa to confirm draft, as it is just 6 ft at low tide. Great communication throughout. New floating dock is nice, however after hours there is a fair bit of traffic as folks come in from moorings looking for a temporary spot to load their boat for an outing. The fuel dock is not yet operational and the wi-fi is spotty at the transient dock. The town is lovely, we had excellent meals at places recommend by the marina and by Tom. There is renovation ongoing and I am sure by next year it will warrant 5 stars.
Great marina and fabulous customer service👍👍😃😃 Bob & Ann Lanz
One of the best experiences I have had at a transient marina.
Easy and issues Details prior to arrival included our mooring designation and a photo was a nice touch.
Deckhands and facility were excellent.
Wonderful old fashion charm. Extremely clean marina and dock hands who go way out of their way to be helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay at Onset Bay and would highly recommend this marina to anyone travelling near the Cape Cod Canal. You won't be disappointed.
Fantastic, clean Marina! The Staff was amazing! I love the new long Face Dock! We will definitely return next year.
Great place. Most helpful and friendly staff we have encountered. New docks but older boats be aware if you have issues with the new ELCI breakers on new dock wiring. Nice walk into town and great pizza from Marc Anthony's. Old school pizza place cash only.
Good location. All dock staff was more than helpful
Easy in and out! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! Great amenities!
Safe Harbor staff never disappoints. They provided detailed instructions for navigating into Onset and to the marina, including a mooring assignment and directions. Nice to get gate/heads/showers code in advance, too. The marina’s basic boatyard; nothing fancy, but it serves its purpose. A short easy walk into town.
Very helpful staff, Thanks
We were going for three days and stayed a week. The staff here is absolutely excellent. The harbor is cute and lots of places to explore by dinghy. Nice beach in town.
Staff and services were great!
Great marina tucked off to the side of the cape cod canal. They have a massive new fuel dock with nice slips and finger piers. The water pressure on the new dock is AMAZING, 50amp electric, and an amazing view of the canal and sunset. They have some great priced fuel which as of May 30th 2023 they’re just days away from getting their new fuel dock up and running. Safe Harbor is reinvesting a lot of money into this property to improve the amenities and marina life. The staff is great, before I arrived I knew exactly where I was going and how I was going to tie up. Made life easy! We’ll be back for sure!
Wonderful Crew of helpful people and a great location, new docks and nice clean facilities. 5+ stars!
quiet and great location
Great staff and facilities, good time as always, thank you!
10/10! What a great spot! The people are lovely, everything you need is a dinghy ride away, Wicket’s Island is so cool and accessible, and the whole mooring field is quiet and super protected. It’s a little skinny for us at low tide with a 6’6” draft, but if you stick to the well marked channel it’s no worries. 6 weeks into a cruise from WLIS to Casco Bay and back, so far this is our favorite place. We will be back! S/V Apeiron
Zach, Travis and Tom are great - very customer service oriented. Great representative of the marina-smile service even with challenging people. Marina friendly clean efficient. Thanks all
Our favorite marina on Buzzards bay. Great staff who make the stop a pleasure
Awesome as always!! Showers well lit and clean. Staff always very helpful. Can’t wait to stop there on my way back home
The staff was amazing! We had a great stay and will stay again in the future if we are back in this area. - Liquid Therapy Amesbury, MA
Super friendly staff. Very clean facility. Short walk to town.
Great little harbor. Fantastic beach and park. Excellent restaurants.
Super stay. People always make the difference and the folks here are really nice and helpful. The service at the dock is second to none Will of course be back.
Great people, especially the dock hands. Appreciate that they are quick to help us dock and depart. The residents are very nice too so it’s always a pleasant stay.
We had a great stay at SHOBM. Allie and dock crew were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back
Outstanding dock staff. Nice facilities
Thank you for giving us a safe place to stay during the high wind!
This is our 3rd trip to Safe Harbor and the lead Dock person, ALLY, is amazing. She runs to everyone, gets everything organized for a stress free docking. She Helps with gas, pump out. Everything is "no problem" and she does it all with a smile. She runs a great team and is huge asset to this safe harbor, they all should have a Ally !
A great marina with all the amenities a cruiser could want. Dock crew are the greatest….make every captain look great! Easy walk to town. Would definitely stop again if in the area.
Went there in a Marlow 53 this place had fuel and all nice ammernities and help at a the dock Good place to wait for the tide in the canal Lovely good food nearby
Extremely accommodating and Extremely nice people, stayed 3 nights on a mooring and the people went out of their way to help us in any way possible. Nice facilities. Will definitely be back!
The team is always great.
Allie was absolutely amazing. Excellent communicator and getting us in after hours. Clean showers and restroom for us to use. Will be back! - Konik Morski
Very nice people and a beautiful location. Great place for us to have stayed while awaiting repairs along our journey
Keven and team were there to welcome us, also there to see us off. Great stop.
Excellent dockside service from Roland and Jess. Josh found me large drill bit to borrow for a quick repair. Props to Josh and the whole crew!
Roland and crew were great. Will definitely be back.
Very helpful Dock Master!! Clean rest rooms, nice laundry. We will come back. We’re back. This visit was on a mooring. Very peaceful and quiet night. Many thanks.
Awesome stay. Great service and a nice team on the Dock to welcome us in.
Terrific marina, good facilities, easier to get to than I thought. Will definitely opt to stay here if current from east is late instead of fighting buzzards bay
A beautiful Marina with some of the most experienced and attentive dock staff.
Helpful staff and easy to to navigate mooring field.
One of our favorite marinas: always friendly and professional staff, convenient mooring location, all facilities are in good shape. Highly recommended!
Great Harbor, but most of all the staff is outstanding! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Staff and organization get 5 stars. I gave it 4 because I was asked to dock stern in and the dock had no padding and the wind pushed the boat into the metal plate that dinged up the cover on my motor. Next time I'll know better to get the boat tied up with the motor backed away from the dock. I would not hesitate to use this marina again.
Great Marina and amazing staff. Everyone was super helpful and the amenities were great. Cant wait to go back.
Facilities were great, but what made our stay exceptional was the quality of the staff- Abbie and her team were extremely helpful, friendly and very professional, and our whole family had a wonderful experience. 3 staff were at the dock to meet us, and within minutes they brought out the pump out boat - a super welcome. Onset is lovely, we paddled around the shore and island.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Thanks to all of them. The location is very calm and protected and a walk around the area is lovely.
Fantastic Marina to stay at, well run and a beautiful location. Roland, Allie and their staff are true professional's who know how to run a marina and take care of all of their guest needs.
Our second visit on our way back south from Maine. Roland and staff were ready with the work boat to get us secured to the dock, which was accomplished quickly and without any difficulties. Enjoyed a great visit for two nights this time and found it very comfortable and relaxing. Visited town by launch for lunch and then walked to Stonebridge for a cocktail in the evening. Roland and his staff took great care of us and we will visit again when our travels take us up Buzzards Bay in the future. Returned to Onset for 2021. Service remains excellent. Received an email prior to arrival with docking assignment to make preparing lines and fenders ahead easy. Dock crew was standing by to assist as we approached and the boat was secured quickly and easily. A beautiful and quiet location which we continue to visit in the future.
Great staff, helpful, courteous and great accommodations.
Roland rocks! - and so does his entire dock team. Quickly becoming one of our favorite summer destinations. An easy walk to town and restaurants. Great harbor for your inflatable too.
We were on a mooring and they came out to welcome us. The next day we went in for fuel and ice. The crew couldn’t be any more helpful or friendly.
Great as always. One night on a quite mooring.
Thank You Rollie and your crew. There is not a more welcoming or more professional crew that we have ever come across. It was a little tricky getting into the marina, but once we docked we were really happy. We found the town lacking a little, but the marina vistas and sunset were spectacular. And did i mention the crew!!!!!
Allie is amazing, and a friendly courteous crew. Nice spot which is now in our radar.
We had a great time. The staff was excellent. Very professional and accommodating. We will be back.
A hidden gem. Cape Cod without the traffic for the tourists. Great dock crew.
We were put right on the fuel dock, had to wait to pull into slip and out of slip for boats fueling. Very active spot no privacy until after 7 when fuel dock closed. I would check where you are going to be located before booking here again.
Great place to lay over to wait for the current in the Canal. Great facilities and helpful welcoming staff.
This whole harbor is a hidden gem. We stopped here on our way to the Vineyard between a 0kt motoring day and a 30kt wild sail day. A great mooring spot, nice and quiet, secure from the weather in pretty much any direction. We didn't go ashore (needed to be up early to sail on for our itinerary) but loved the evening here in the cockpit. Would definitely revisit. And don't be afraid of the narrow channel in - it's well marked and simple to navigate, and the marina gave great specific instructions on where to go.
The staff at Safe Harbor marine are just so fantastic. They just go out of their way to make sure everything is right for your stay.
The dock hands were very helpful and effective. Great facilities and overall good experience.
We had a very nice stay at Onset. I had several packages delivered tome there before and during our stay, whch is always risky, but the staff made sure i received them all, and even brought them right to the boat. Access to the Canal is as easy as it could be. Our shedule kept shifting before we got there which caused several cancellations and rebookings, and they were all takrn care of with no fuss and plenty of good humour. Communication was also excellent. We’ll be back in a month as we head home, and are lookig forward to it.
Roland was very helpful.
This a great marina just before you enter the Cape Cod Canal. The staff is very helpful. It is an easy walk into town for dinner.
Came late for overnight. Got all info including moor# by message upfront. Nice place to stay for longer. Thanks!
The marina staff (Allie & Roland) are extremely professional and competent. It's really impressive how efficiently this marina is managed. This is the perfect place to stage a trip through the Cape Cod Canal. Easy in and out. Highly recommended.
Great marina. Help with docking and electric hook . Great communication before and during our stay. Easy walk to town for a great meal. Beautiful clean bathrooms! Even an early morning send off. We will be back. Highly recommend
Great help, friendly team!
Great place, great people. Very accommodating. Highly recommend!
Ally and Roland are amazing people. They did an incredible job taking care of me and my little sister, and I will always return to this marina whenever I'm in the area. I mean even when I'm not on a boat - whenever you meet people this kind and good at what they do, you should stay connected with them. These two keep the spirit of maritime heritage and hospitality alive in Onset, and they reminded me that good people really do exist.
Located conveniently just off the west end of the Cape Cod Canal, Safe Harbor Onset Bay is the perfect location to pause and refresh before continuing your journey north or south—or as your base to explore Buzzards Bay and the Elizabeth Islands. Friendly, helpful staff. Dockmaster Roland is a treasure! Modern, clean and well-maintained facilities with an old-time feeling you won’t find at the big marinas with concrete docks and golf carts. Whether you are looking for a place to sit out the storm or take in the charms of the South Coast, Onset Bay Marina has everything you need.
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.
Reservation process was quick and easy. Instructions for arriving were clear and accurate. The staff was very responsive and helpful. After telling me our slip assignment, they met me at the slip to assist with docking. The marina facilities are clean. Lots of help at the fuel dock and with pumpout. A great place in a great location.
We stay at Onset Bay Marina on our trips into Buzzards Bay. Excellent customer service. Clean facilities. Restaurants and shops nearby.
Great people. Roland and crew are very friendly and accomodating. Love it here!
Very peaceful location. Saw a nice sunset, beautiful star filled night. Marina is well organized, clean and friendly.
Good "Harbor Cinema"
All of the dock staff were extremely helpful and very kind. All of the facilities very clean. We had a wonderful stay and will return
We had a very nice two day stay. The dockmaster Roland is always a pleasure to work with. We will look forward to going back and seeing everyone again. Very clean, docks sparkle and Roland , Steve and Kylie were most gracious. The confirming email was a big help. We look forward to stopping back in again to enjoy the facility. Thank you
Very helpful Great dock staff We look forward to coming again
Very attentive staff. Clean restrooms. Good overall service.
Wonderful staff and great location. Wish we could have used the electrical hook-up, but our old boat tripped the new pedestals. We've had the problem in other marinas, but we had no issues at the Safe Harbor in Stamford.
Nice quiet anchorage with all the amenities you’d want: fuel, showers, laundry etc No launch service though, but I can understand that in their situation.
The staff at Onset Bay Marina was very helpful and friendly. This is an excellent location to prep for a canal transit.
Roland and the dock hands are so friendly and helpful . Facilities clean . we will be back again.
Super nice and helpful staff, facilities are ok, Marc Antony pizza delivers and is good. Not a ton to do there but we only used it for an overnight stay. I would definitely go back there if I need a nice place to stay overnight.
Onset Bay was lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this marina. Dockwa, however, is a terrible way to make a reservation. We were all tied up and settled into the marina before we received an email confirmation from Dockwa. It is impossible to wait 24 hours for a confirmation when you are on the water and conditions determine that you need to seek a safe harbor.
Great marina. Very pleasant staff! Nice job again Safe Harbor.....
Beautiful, quiet and well protected. The staff are very helpful, and the town has some great places to eat. This is a perfect place to stay on a trip that includes the Cape Cod Canal, or just for a relaxed get-away.
This is our home port and we love it. Roland is the best dockmaster, hands down. He is always helpful, calm even when customers are freaking out, and has a wicked sense of humor.
Safe Harbor Onset Bay is one of my favorite New England marinas. I always stop in here on my way through the CCC. It’s easy to get to with excellent channel navaids. The staff, especially Brandon, is most helpful and courteous. Facilities are clean and comfortable. I enjoy riding my dinghy around the bay. The only negative is lack of walking distance restaurants and grocery store, but I can easily bike to town. I plan to return each time I cruise northward. Mitch Gilbert s/v Pleiades, Westbrook, CT
Great people and a good facility. We stopped using Sandwich for fuel both north and southbound since we stopped here a couple of years ago. We now always stop for fuel and water and try to stay a night or two each way.
Great people, great facilities, and great location
Would have been four stars, reduced because at 7am Saturday when we went to shower there was NO hot water in either men’s or women’s room. Otherwise fuel dock was efficient and moorings were convenient.
Informative e-mail sen out prior to arrival. Very friendly staff who helped out in difficult docking conditions. Good facilities - showers, wi-fi. One negative is the distance from “downtown” Onset - about a 15-minute walk.
Marina sits in the middle of Onset Harbor which is well protected from the winds in most directions. We fueled up before getting our slip assignment. Staff was very helpful getting us set up in our slip. Roland stuck around to make sure we were settled. Onset is a pretty little town with several restaurants within a 15 minute walk. It is also a great stopover if you’re going east up the Cape Cod canal since it’s less than 10 minutes to the Bourne Railroad bridge. We’ll stop by on our way back from Boston. Great staff and good restrooms and showers.
Always a pleasant stay...Roland and team are very professional and accommodating. The bathrooms/laundry facility were very clean. Harbor is calm and safe....it is a great stop over for us after a week in MV or getting thru the canal making our way to/from home.
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.
Nice place to stop on your way to or from Cape Cod Bay. Clean facilities and very helpful staff.
Great help once they could get to me. Very busy day for them but they were terrific! 8/2/19: Great, well trained dock staff, took great care of us! Maybe there are cheaper alternatives, but I'll stick with the positive performers!
The staff was the what made this place so special. The facility is top notch. Everything was clean and very organized. The "team" as they refer to themselves was simply outstanding, very courteous and professional, but yet had great personalities. Wish we could have stayed longer, but we will be back. Tide together
Your marina and staff were Amazing!! Thabk you Roland for your hospitality!! We will see you again!!
Everything was great. Helpful and friendly staff, easy access from the Cape Cod Canal
Instructions were emailed well before our arrival we had a great dock assignment and were welcomed by a alert and expert dock crew Many thanks to Roland
Lovely marina. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We’ll be back.
Onset is awesome a hidden gem Onset bay Marina is awesome the staff is friendly and helpful will be back again next year
Onset Bay Marina - thank you for yet another amazing overnight with you! From the treats for the kids to the morning coffee - we are blessed! Alyssa best of luck in your new adventures, Roland thank you for watching over us and always lending a helping hand and COLIN!!!!!!! You saved us and we are forever grateful - your cat like, superpower reflexes is the reason our boat is still intact...we thank you beyond what words and my scraped bloody legs can say - THANK YOU Cat (Bryan, Victoria & Jacob) - C’est La Vie
An amazing marina! Stayed here after fouling a prop in buzzards bay and couldn’t have been happier to foul a prop. From the moment we coasted in to the dock the staff at Safe Harbor Onset Bay Marina helped to get us back up and running and provided a lovely place to stay until the weather cleared up and we could navigate buzzards bay. Whether waiting to go in to the cape cod canal or staying on the way out or just to visit this is the best possible location! Just a short walk from a quaint town and restaurants and providing clean functional facilities and a lovely scenery it’s a quite wonderful place to stay. And once again I can’t say enough great things about the staff, the friendliest and most helpful people around! Thanks Roland and Alyssa!
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.
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.
Friendly staff. I was late in arriving and the gas dock attendant stayed until I was moored and provided information about the marina.
Super support staff.
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.
Love the renovated ladies showers.
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.
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.
Good service at the docks.
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.
