The secluded location on the Connecticut River, tucked behind Eustasia Island, is only eight miles from Long Island Sound and just two miles north of Essex. Safe Harbor Deep River offers excellent spots to explore (and enjoy a safe anchorage) by boat including: Hamburg Cove, Selden Creek, and Pratt Cove. Steeped in colonial charm, history, and a long legacy in the ivory trades, Deep River offers unique shops, amenities, and wonderful restaurants within walking distance to the Marina.
This is an awesome place. Just up the river from Essex this place is a real gem. Brian, Andy, Bill, Steven and the rest of the team are excellent. The docks, bathrooms, pool and grilling areas are well maintained and always clean. You can walk to town for the grocery store or enjoy dinner at the RED HOUSE (our favorite), breakfast at Haley Joes or visit the new coffee place called the The Nest which was created to employee and enjoy fellowship with people with disabilities.
This is our first year staying at this marina (we bought the boat through them). We absolutely love it! The people on our dock are always so helpful and friendly, some of them have become like family. Staff is wonderful, bathrooms are clean and have fresh flowers on the counters, which is such a nice little touch. They have grills under shaded trees or gazebos, grounds are well maintained and they have a swimming pool. The only negative, and this is not the fault of the marina's at all is the current. It's not an easy one, but like I said everybody on the docks are so helpful.
The stay was great on the mooring, quite, calm water , scenic views of the steam train and tour boats. All facilities and landscape very well kept. We will definitely visit again.
Beautiful Marina! We always enjoy coming here!!
