Cove Haven Marina charged me $3,500 for repairs which they verbally estimated would cost "$500 - $800". They never contacted me to inform me of the cost over-runs and refused to reduce the charge by a single penny when I complained. Be very careful to get repair quotes in writing.

Great place and service. During a very busy time of year, they squeezed us in, last second, for some engine maintenance. Very helpful.

Nice docks and nice people if you don’t need WIFI. It is very frustrating that all Safe Harbor marinas advertise WIFI but it rarely works. Harbor master did his best to help but the internet provider could not provide WIFI service.. There are not many businesses within walking distance but there are nice bike trails.

We arrived just as they were closing. We called and they gave us our slip info, but didn't designate whether it was B North or South side ended up in the wrong slip. It would have been helpful if someone had come out or met us but other than that it's a great facility. Kenny (the dockmaster) responded to my after hours message promptly and was very knowledgeable. Be careful coming in as there is very shallow water between the rock marker and the channel! Overall an excellent stay!

Dock master Ken was absolutely a master - knowledgeable and high-energy. Afternoon kids were OK.

I have stored my boat at Safe Harbor Cove Haven off season for about ten years. Recently the JAZZ FISH needed some seasonal work done and I came in the night before so I would not be time pressed the next morning. Before arriving I received instructions from Ken that I should bring the boat directly to the work pit so work could begin the next morning without delay. When I arrived help was waiting for me at the dock. The next morning the work was done and I was off. Here's the great thing about this yard. Nothing seems to bother them. No matter what I have needed in previous years, or needed this time, I was always greeted with a "can do" response and then quietly and competently it got done. This is a first class yard with great people who sincerely want to help us enjoy our sport. I recommend them with enthusiasm.

Some (many) of the finest staff in the industry. Very nice facilities, over the water. Culture changes and significant price increases with new Safe Harbors ownership. Extremely accomodative to transient boaters and those arriving to winter.

We are a cruising couple who spends a good deal of time in marinas. If we could give 6 stars to the staff we would! Dockmaster Kenny not only keeps his domain Bristol Fashion but is the go-to guy for any local info—best grocery store, seafood joint or nearby anchorages. Alison in the office is every bit a joy to know as she was on the phone when we first called last winter to inquire about spring reservations. She, too, went out of her way to assist us. All this and well located to PVD and nearby Newport. Thanks for a top notch marina experience! Julie and Richard, M/V Bel Sito

Cove Haven is easily accessible, extremely sheltered and safe, and wonderfully run. The staff are able, personable, and helpful. The facilities (including a pool!) are top-notch. I highly recommend it.

We travel in our boat a lot and this Marina is the best. It is a complete service marina with skilled tradesmen on site or available. The harbour is very well protected and the dockage is superb. Secure parking is available on site. Best of all are the staff who are a most professional team. Five stars are well deserved.

Friendly and helpful dockmaster. Thanks Kenny. Protected location especially considering the t-storms and wind which went thru the area just before we arrived. Clean shower and bathroom facilities. Would recommend Cove Haven to other cruisers

Excellent. One of the cleanest, friendliest and efficient marinas we've had the pleasure of staying at. Very wide fairways, protected harbor and excellent WiFi added to our experience. We'll be back.

Brewer Cove Haven is safe, well kept and beautiful. The managers, Pat, Ken and Jeff are amazing professionals and they have become like family. They have made our stay very memorable, and we look forward to coming back. We also had a number of service items performed. The results were first class, and cost-effective.

Marina Response:

Really like this spot, easy to deal with and Kenny goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. Bike/walking path is another plus. Several year rounders kept an eye on things when we had to fly home for a few days so 5 stars from Karma's crew.

Very nice full service marina and boat yard . Very helpful staff. Great bike trail right here if you have your bike. For transients needs a nicer pool and has no laundry facilities.
