2nd time staying there for one night. Simple and easy as it gets, especially using the Dockwa App!

Well maintained, clean, like new docks and facilities. Helpful and friendly staff. We draw 7.5 feet and had no problem in the channel leading to the marina. Deep water on face dock. Convenient to grocery stores(2.5 miles). A very good experience, well worth a visit.

We spent a night here heading home. Two SHM employees met us on the dock to manage lines when we arrived. Fueled up, filled water and enjoyed a quiet night on the dock. Laundry and showers are clean. Docks are basically new.

From the moment we pulled up to the day we pushed off - we were greeted with friendly and helpful staff. Clean bathroom facilities and two awesome restaurants nearby. We had to get some repair work done #moselymarinemotors so this was a great place for our stay! Thank you!!!

Helpful staff for lines etc. the men in my party found the shower “dirty and not great.” Women’s shower was fine. Would be good if they had recycling capabilities. Somewhat shocking that they don’t. Sane for used oil…

This is an amazing marina, with a great staff, and food onsite if you want that. The rest of town is a quick dinghy ride away. We found it to be an accommodating and very good place to stay on our southerly trek and will be coming back again.

We always love staying at SH South Harbor Village. Great dock hands, fantastic dock master. The facility has been updated after the past hurricane and it is beautiful. 2 great restaurants, various options for rides to services, provisions, propane and liquor at a very low cost. A marina that's easy in and out. A place to come back to again and again. SV Chanticleer Csy 44 walkover 5.6 draft

The new dock is lovely, but there is no provision for older boats with old systems. We were not able to use power at all. No rebate or reduction of price was made as the marina staff blamed Dockwa.

Marina Response:
Mr. Flynn I am sorry you experienced electrical issues during your stay. I'm not sure if it was explained or not but during our rebuild our electrical system was brought up to the new National Electrical Code (NEC). This has caused breakers on our docks to trip due to a bonded ground issue (neutral/ground tied together) on a boat. We typically will refund however, I have asked Dockwa to refund your electric charge because the reservation is over a month old. They just informed me that it is done. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you stay with us again. Please reach out to me if you have further questions or concerns. Ian-Dockmaster.

The Safe Harbor South Harbour Village Marina was recently largely rebuilt and rewired. The face/fuel dock in particular is much stronger and stabler than it used to be. The heads and laundry are always clean, the dock guys know their business and the in-the-marina restaurant Fish Hooks is pleasent with a good bar and food a cut above the average on the waterway restaurant.

On behalf of our annual Military Appreciation Day (MAD) volunteers and active duty guests, we want to express our deep gratitude to the staff at the marina for their outstanding community civic mindedness in support of our annual event. As an all volunteer, 100% donor supported organization, we depend on the generosity of the local community and Safe Harbor South Harbour Village Marina definitely showed their local community spirit. Manager, Mike, Dockmaster, Ian and the dock staff couldn't have been more welcoming, generous, and helpful in making the facility available for our use and helping ensure a quality experience for our visiting troops. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the marina and are delighted to have it in the community. Hank Pomeranz, MAD Southport Chapter.

Marina Response:
It was our pleasure, Hank. We were happy to see the excited smiles of the young service members as they boarded their assigned boats for a day of fishing. MAD Southport Chapter put on a well organized event and we thank them for their year-round efforts in putting the event together. Thanks also to the boat captains who volunteered their boats, time, and local fishing knowledge to make it a day that these active duty personnel will remember for a lifetime.

Deckhands tore off our stern railing. They had no idea what they were doing or how to dock a 70’ boat. Electricity not always working. Water not always working. 15 minutes from the inlet. Many boats going by. Wakes were noisy and kept us awake. The marina is under construction and looks nothing like the photos on the website. Would never go back.

Staff was great. The docks were brand new and really nice. Definitely a crowded overnight stop on the ICW. The staff gave us the number of a local driver who took us on a quick provisioning run. Would definitely stop again if we're up this way again.

Marina is still under repair from a storm 2 years ago. Temp walkways, only dockage was on the outside of the T dock on a busy waterway.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the review. We are actually finishing up a rebuild from Hurricane Isaias in August of 2020. We try to notify all transient guests in advance as to the current situation on our docks. We apologize if we dropped the ball in your case.

Great place. Still recovering from Hurricane damage but they are trying hard to satisfy. No trash cans on the docks or anywhere on the property

Marina Response:
Thanks for the review, pegasus1! I apologize that you were unable to find the trash cans. With ongoing construction they can be hard to spot. Hopefully we will see you this coming weekend and we will be glad to show you the current trash can locations. We will have trash cans on A-Dock once the plumbing installation is complete.

We left a day early because we had to be on the T dock outside on the ICW. Rock-n-rolled all night long and no sleep. We had reservations well in advance and should have been told if they did not have a slip inside. I would not have gone if I knew we were going to be on the fuel dock outside. I would like credit for the second night as we left the Dock right after 11 AM on May 30. Will not go back there!
