Located in the charming town of Old Saybrook, the sprawling and amenity-rich Safe Harbor Pilots Point is moments away from the quaint coastal communities of the Long Island Sound. From water sports and swimming to picnicking and Member events, boating enthusiasts will find everything needed for a weekend getaway or an ideal summer home.
We love this marina and visit every year. This time we were late in the season (last week of September). We understand about the pools being closed and even the restaurant being closed for the season. But it was a bit much that the A/C in the lounge and rest rooms was shut down already. We had unseasonably warm weather during our stay and the lounge in particular was too hot to use.
Boatyard staff were very helpful over phone prior to visit and when arrived and left. Very nice bathrooms/showers too. Highly recommended!
Pilot's Point is a first class marina. Staff provides excellent service. Good restaurants are nearby within a nice walk. When mechanical help is needed, they are competent, caring about your wish to get back on the water as soon as possible. Access off the Long Island Sound is so easy and close, yet the marina is well protected no matter from which direction the weather comes. I could say more good things. But you get the picture.
great slip nice docks great pool showers and bathrooms were great giant facility couldn't ask for better ... great docks too
Dock crew was especially helpful!
Very helpful staff, clean marina and great spot right off the sound. A definite best stop over, when sailing from New Rochelle to Block Island. T
Not my first time and as always the staff and facilities are awesome. Michealla can handle a dock line like few can and she’s knowledgeable and professional. Justin stepped right in to handle the stern line even though he was done working for the day. Says a lot about the staff that they are always “on” and how well they work together. Beautiful grounds, docks and facilities. Always a pleasure to arrive at Pilots Point. Thanks all.
This was our first visit to Pilots point and it wont be our last. This marina is fantastic! Upon arrival and calling the dockmaster we were immediately greeted in the harbor by a small tender that took us to our spot, we came in with 4 boats at the same time. The 2 deck hands were prompt and got us all tied up quickly. Each slip has a dock box, power, hose, etc, the docks themselves are beautiful with a composite type decking and well maintained. We were on M dock right near the bathrooms and pool. The bathrooms were clean and had 3 toilet stalls and 4 showers, you could smell the bleach in the morning, they kept them very clean. behind the bathrooms there is a nice pool with lounge chairs. There is another pool on the other side of the marina as well which is a little more updated, but our kids didnt care. Behind the pool is a nice pavilion with tables and grills, then a large playscape for the kids. This is a great marina to have a dinghy if you want to explore, or take it to the other pool. We also went up into the march for miles, the kids loved it, and its a short ride to Bills seafood for dinner or icecream. They also have a free shuttle which took some people tot he outlets and back which was very nice. next time we come back it will be for 3 days, this place is fantastic!
This was our first time to Pilots Point and it didn’t disappoint. We came in with 3 other boats and they were able to get us all together. The grounds were beautiful. The docks were new and bathrooms very clean. The kids had a blast in the pool and playground. We will definitely be coming back!
Great, knowledgeable staff. Lovely property to walk around. Even though we didn't use it, the courtesy shuttle was a plus.
LOVE IT HERE! Friendly,clean and totally beautiful all around
Excellent facilities, friendly and helpful staff.
Facilities and staff more than met our expectations
Very nice stay. Only downside, the restaurant didn't serve alcohol and no volume discount for diesel at the fuel dock.
Pilots Point Marina was exceptional! We arrived a little early (noon) to get ahead of the weather and the staff were accommodating and helped us refuel and get settled. The girls shuttled us to a nearby restaurant on Saturday evening in the courtesy van and went out of their way to come back and pick us up. We really enjoyed the weekend, This was our second time visiting and Pilots Point continues to be an exceptional facility with awesome staff!
Beautiful spot! Needs a better handicapped shower. Had person traveling with us who needed A) a seat and B) a spray hose due to a medical condition
Dockwa is easy to use and has the best list of marinas to review and choose
Excellent facilities. Attentive dock staff. They are available to drive you to local markets.
Safe Harbors Pilots Point has really gone downhill. When the Brewer family had 100% control of the marina it was a much friendlier place. Now with the acquisition, the down to earth feel has gone out the window and the corporate mumbo jumbo has been ushered in. We tried to make a reservation and could not get a straight answer if they had room, and when we came to the fuel dock we were saddened to see that Max was not there anymore. In previous visits Max is what made us want to come back! So with him gone we were not too thrilled. With that being said, we were rubbed the wrong way and proceeded to Clinton and had a wonderful stay at a marina there (I will refrain from stating the name, but it is the biggest in Clinton.) If you want a down-to-earth feel then proceed elsewhere!
Great clean well maintained marina. Lots of good local restaurants and the staff was very helpful.
Called on Monday morning to request a repair when I arrived, was told they'd have someone look at it that day. Asked Tuesday morning for a status update since no one looked Monday, they again said they'd send someone today. Asked Wednesday morning for an update & was again told someone would be out today, but that they may not want to do the work at all because the engine was old & they were busy, so I did the work myself while they stopped by to cancel the work order when I got halfway done. Additionally the security gate was not responsive 3 of the 5 times my guests & I arrived. The facilities are nice but I wish I had known to look for somewhere else to have work done, & I wish they had told me that on the first day instead of the third so I didn't waste 2 days waiting for help that never came.
We sailed to Pilots Point unexpectedly for repairs. We'd been there several times before and always had good experience. Outboard of 25 years finally gave out and Dean, the service manager could not have been more gracious. The courtesy extended by all was above and beyond but a big thanks to Dean.
If there was an open restaurant on the premises would have rated it five stars. Dock hands were great, everybody very helpful.
Beautiful Marina and very courteous and professional staff!! We loved our first stay here and we will definitely be back soon!!! Had a quick one night stay and enjoyed use of the courtesy van for a ride to dinner at Bill’s Seafood then had a leisurely walk home which gave us a chance to admire all of the beauty of this marina!! Can’t wait to return!!
Best most helpful friendly staff best run Marina been coming here for years current staff is top notch!!
Very helpful personnel. Great facilities
From Maryland to Maine this is the best Safe Harbor Marina. The staff could not be more helpful and the grounds are beautiful. The only concern was that the on-site restaurant was closed for renovations, in the middle of the season?
A great marina with many amenities and a friendly and knowledgeable staff. On our arrival, the crew was there to assist us with docking. The grounds are spotless and restroom facilities are super clean. There are gas grills placed throughout the marina and a short walk will take you to the town beach. We have been here several times and always have had an enjoyable stay.
Beautiful marina. The entire staff was very helpful and courteous! We will definitely visit again!
Great Marina with excellent staff and facilities. We will be back!!
Great! Loved our slip and you accommodated all our boats. Your pool was great. Restrooms clean, friendly staff..great fireworks..had a wonderful time!! Thank you!!
Always have excellent service and great stay at Pilots Point. So happy that we can use our free nights there!
Our stay here has been very enjoyable. The only issue we had was that my hot dogs and hamburgers were stolen from the community room on July 4th. I took my children and grand children to a restaurant instead so we didn't have our planned BBQ. Now I don't put anything the community room and lock my boat every time I step away.
Regularly stop at Pilots Points. Clean facilities and great staff. Josh always takes good care of us.
Fantastic weekend at Pilots Point. As usual, Josh, the Marina Manager, made sure everyone in our party of ten boats had a wonderful time. Josh is extremely friendly, professional and attentive and we all had a terrific weekend.
Always a great stay at Westbrook, Josh & his team are just top notch.
Very nice marina, clean facilities and Josh was so accomidating !
We had to arrive after everyone had gone home at the dock, so the Dockmaster let us know where we could tie up for the night and have power. A very nice person going home late from the accounting office gave us a ride to a nearby restaurant. A treat after a rough cold day. Thanks everyone.
Wonderful location and very friendly staff.
The staff was excellent, the facilities are great and the communication through Dockwa was outstanding. They met all of our requests during the reservation process.
Pilots Point is always a favorite spot. The docks are excellent, the staff is attentive, the bathrooms are spotless, and there are amenities such as a pool, grills, and an on-site restaurant. It's also as good a marina as you'll find anywhere for all types of service for your boat.
Excellent - great accommodations, friendly staff, all good. Will be back!
Great shuttle service, RR/Showers, Restaurant, fuel/pumpout, WiFi Not great: shallow at dock at low tide; swimming pool not clean
Arrived at Pilot's Point for an overnight stay after which we found oil coming out the port side exhaust. We contacted Josh the Dock Master and he contacted Chic the Service Manager. Chic got Dave, one of the mechanics to address the problem straight away. The parts were ordered and installed and the boat was up and running by the end of the day that day. Incredible! My thanks to a great team at Pilot's Point marina that works like a well oiled machine.
This is the jewel of the Sound. It’s impeccably kept, expertly staffed with friendly helpful people. A walk to great food. Quiet and composed at night, secure behind gates and guardhouses. The rest of Safe Harbors should come by and take notes. I’d move there in a heartbeat if it didn’t add an hour to my drive. Well done all.
Very clean, friendly staff. All around impressive marina.
I had a totally fine refueling, ice, and holding tank pump out. When I threw off the dock lines, I found I had no power. The dock crew jumped and towed me back in faster than I could imagine. I have repairs underway and have been treated very very well.
Very nice marina. The only issue I have was the vast size of the marina. You can get lost in minutes. BUT, the staff and seasonal people were great. Will return!
Very clean. Extremely well maintained with knowledgeable dock hands.
Love this marina! Stayed here for our family’s first overnight trip away from our home port. Great experience from the moment we hailed them entering the channel to leaving the next afternoon. Location, people, employees, ambiance, service, hospitality all were fantastic. Kids and us can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful place! Nice restaurant onsite, lovely grounds, helpful dock personnel. Take the shuttle to town and if you stay late it’s easy to Uber back. We’ll be back soon!
Staff was very friendly. Josh was the most helpful. He was also knowledgeable. Boom Restaurant on site was convenient and excellent.
Awasome marina Josh on deck to help with lines added a night d/t rain and wind without a hassle ride into town helpful o restock
Dock staff was very helpful and accommodating, easy floating docks to tie up to and very protected and quiet. Great stop for fuel after entering Long Island sound
It was very nice there. Everyone was helpful. Just ashame i couldn't do any laundry. Hope that gets straightened out. Otherwise it was great
Great overnight spot. People are very friendly and helpful. Courtesy car took a crew member to the train station.
nice marina, good services, shuttle to restaurants, uber back!
What a huge place and kept in beautiful shape. Dock staff didn't do their homework and moved us twice to another dock, actually three times. The two dock hands were very courteous and helpful, I just don't know why they didn't check their records when I hailed them. No big deal, but they left so fast I didn't have a chance to tip them. I guess a lot of boats were coming in at that time..
Excellent staff and very helpful. I was in the east Yard - WiFi was so weak that is was useless.
Very clean and well kept. Little low on depth in the slips and channel
Our first time here.... Simply WOW ! My wife's first comment after walking the pup upon arrival was "immaculate". Beautifully laid out and maintained. The place is sprawling... but still cozy. Narrow but well marked inlet and really pretty area. Marina is broken up into sections and is great for exploring. Courtesy shuttle is available but bikes are helpful as nearest large markets are 3mi east or west. Yard was very quiet while we were there on wknd but obviously has an incredible svc dept. Grills available all over as well as bathrooms & showers so where ever they dock you they will be convenient. All that said... NOT CHEAP. But lots of value for the money, and we would DEFINITELY return.
Max was awesome! Got our guest to Amtrak in the morning and drove us to Simon's for breakfast food. Great service from a great guy. Wonderful experience and we will be coming back soon. S/V Grace.
Great stay. Courteous staff, tv in game room provides opportunity to get off boat and get caught up on world events. Overall nicest marina we have stayed at. Going to Mystic Brewers today.
all the dock hands and staff were really great! beautiful facility.
We had a nice stay. The staff was very good, the facilities were pretty clean and overall it was a good stay. Probably the biggest disappointment was them shutting down the snack bar Sunday morning due to a refrigeration issue. I could have lived without breakfast but it seems as though they could have still sold coffee or at least left the coffee supplies out. Instead we hoofed it out to the main road and found Simon's Marketplace where we had an excellent breakfast before taking the long walk back to the marina. I would go back.
Enjoyed our visit. Dock crew was very helpful, the facilities were very clean and the whole yard was well maintained. Boom Restaurant had excellent food.
Good stopover on the way to Block Island. Nice pool good restaurant. Good staff.
We arived an we're assisted in docking our boat. Everything went smoothly. We had a nice dip in the large pool and a nice hot shower. We then used the marinas grill to cook dinner. Everything was perfect. Great and courteous staff was welcoming.
Have stayed at many marinas over 30 ears of boating and have visited many prime venues such as Nantucket, Edgartown, Block, Newport, Stonington, etc. Without question Brewer Pilot Point is the best and #2 is not close. Josh is especially excellent. H Casazza
Always a pleasant stay. The crew is friendly and super helpful.
