Stunning poolside views of the Tred Avon River complement warm personalized service and small-town charm at Safe Harbor Oxford. Calmly placed in the seaside town of Oxford, the marina’s complement of upscale amenities, expert marine service, and close-knit community create a truly boater-friendly setting. The quaint, historic village grants a quiet escape from city life with an eclectic mix of dining, museums, and shops.
Excellent marina in all respects. Thanks to Graham and his team for a most enjoyable stay.
Great marina in all respects: docks, facilities, location and management.
Always a pleasure here. Nicest bath house I have ever seen at a marina. Great pool for a hot day with good view. New mostly floating docks are great with very capable dock hands. At the moment Wi-Fi at dock is not working great due to problems of merging system with nearby marina with now common ownership. However Wi-Fi in club house is better. If good Wi-Fi is vital during your stay check for an update when you book. Town has great cell service from antennas on water tower near marina ----- Stayed here again on 7/19/21. Everything still great except Wi-Fi which is better than before, but can be glacial at times when other people are active. Fortunately there is great cellular coverage from the nearby water tower.
Great facilities, very friendly and accommodating staff! Pool has a spectacular water view. Short walks or bike rides to restaurants, ice cream, coffee shop, convenience store and gift ship. We'll be back!
Great floating docks, bathhouse, picnic/grill area. Katelynn was very helpful and friendly.
The staff were outstanding. We had a small mechanical issue and asked for some help from their yard. We had a mechanic on the boat that afternoon and back again the next morning to diagnose the issue. Very professional and helpful. We are going to return in the fall for a longer stay.
The new docks are great and the staff was very professional.
A very enjoyable weekend. Friendly helpful courteous staff who came out to meet us and guide us into our slip and assist with tying up and connecting water and power. Quiet relaxing weekend. Nothing but good things to say about Safe Harbor Oxford.
. Gorgeous area to visit Good size pool and warm too. Will be back for sure. People helpful and friendly
We enjoyed relaxation and quiet!
Love the improvements at this marina. Floating docks are excellent. Staff friendly, helpful and very responsive on Dockwa. Within easy walking distance to town. Highly recommend.
The front half of the marina is completely renovated with floating docks. We arrived after closing, but a staff member was hanging out nearby and came by to assist. They still have the best showers on the bay. Staff was friendly as always,
June 2021 - Love the floating docks! The marina looks great and we thoroughly enjoy our time in Oxford and will continue to stay at this marina. Jeff is very helpful, courteous and friendly. Our only issue with the marina is the lack of lighting in the dock area as nighttime visibility is very poor. October 2020 - We were happy to be able to get back to Oxford now that phase 1 of the dock work was completed. We love the town of Oxford and we really enjoy stating at this marina. We do strongly recommend that the docks be furnished with lighting as it is very dark and could be dangerous walking the docks after dark. Additionally, we had issues the the WIFI connection and suggest boosters be placed along the docks to improve service. The dock work completed to date is very well done. We will be back next season. This is an older review - We enjoyed our stay at the Oxford Marina and Boat Yard. We were disappointed that there is no longer a complimentary continental breakfast available. Additionally, there was no water on "G" dock which was a great inconvenience to a couple we were traveling with. Seems not much was being done to correct the problem as the line broke on Friday and still no water on Sunday. We will definitely stay at this marina in the future.
FIRST REVIEW July 2018: We have been talking about coming here for years and seem to go everywhere else in the area but Oxford. Finally made it on July 7&8 with three other boats in our group. We absolutely loved the town of Oxford. This marina is in a perfect location and is well maintained. We stayed at the boatyard side which we liked as it was quieter on Sat night. The amenities which are mostly on the other side including fabulous bathrooms and pool and gas grills were nice and only a very short walk. Could use more bathrooms as there was a line Sat night. When the boatyard work resumed Mon morning it was loud and I'm not sure I would enjoy this side during the week but we were leaving anyway. Capsize restaurant and the famous ice cream store are right there. We biked and walked all over town and truly enjoyed it. Plan to come back in August for another weekend. My husband says it's now his favorite marina and price is very reasonable too. UPDATE September 2019: Can I give more than 5 stars? Never made it back last year due to weather issues but made sure to come here in May of this year and again this past week. We stayed on the marina side both of these times and absolutely loved both stays again as did our friends who came along. Jeff and his staff are top notch, efficient and super friendly. We have friends who keep their sailboat here and they love it as well. If we lived closer, this would be our home marina. Thanks, Jeff!! See you next year! Update: May 2021: We never got back to the marina in 2020 due to the construction and the pandemic. We made sure to get there early this season and spent two days May 23 and 24. The new floating docks are just beautiful as is the whole marina. Staff is great as always. Our only issue was that we tripped the breaker on the power pedestal a few times. Once it was one of our A/Cs and once it was a coffee maker but it was not even consistent. We understand that the electrical is up to the latest codes and many boats may have some issues. From my reading up on it it seems like many older boats ( ours is 2006 cruiser 42 ft) and even some newer boats can have issues so keep that in mind. We know it was not our power cords. We will definitely go back and we think we worked out how to mot trip the breakers. Update June 2021: Jeff the dock master was extremely helpful and friendly as always. After we tied up at our lovely floating slip we discovered that we tripped the breaker again on the power pedestal. We tried several different permutations of power cords, splitters and even a different pedestal but kept tripping. Our friends with a newer boat had no problem. Jeff was able to move us to a really nice slip on the T over at the boatyard side where we had no problems. I’m fact we’re thought our view was even nicer! Although it is a longer walk to the really nice bathhouse and clubhouse and the pool it is not a deal breaker at all. We definitely plan to come back since we love the marina, the staff and the town of Oxford. Meantime we will continue to look into our boat’s electrical system and our power cords to see if there is a fixable issue. Thanks again, Jeff!
The new facilities are excellent and the dock boys and girls are also excellent and helpful. However, when I first arrived they asked me to go into a slip at "The Shipyard" (old fixed slips rather than the floating slips at the marina) which had no 50 Amp service and and was very difficult to get off; especially for my wife. I requested to be relocated to the marina and they did accommodate this request. As I said the Maria itself and its facilities are excellent.
Fabulous marina, brand new floating docks with wide slips, immaculate restrooms, swimming pool, indoor lounge, grills and picnic tables, everything clean, friendly staff.
Wonderful facility. Excellent customer service from Dockhand Annie. Best restrooms on the Bay.
Just a great marina. Nice floating docks. Easy approach and convenient access. Dockmaster and dockhands are friendly and very helpful. Good restaurant and ice cream shop on- site. Rent a bike and go see Oxford.
Quiet, clean laid back marina! Nice pool and bathrooms/showers and close to great restaurants within walking distance. Can’t wait to return!
Brand new floating docks. Easy access. Nice pool with a great view. Helpful staff upon arrival.
Love the marina, the dockmaster and the setting. Hate Dockwa
Excellent all the way around....we love coming there & can't wait to see the new docks in the spring.....staff & service was A+...so happy pool was still open! Thank you!! Andy Anderson & Stacie Cain / "Had Too"
What a great marina! Nice floating docks, easy in and out, very nice bathrooms, and lots of places to lounge and just enjoy the beautiful location. Staff went above and beyond to help us get some supplies we needed. Will definitely be back!
Overheard someone call Kaitlyn a “rockstar” Second that! Great crew, extensively helpful even when spread thin
Always accommodating, charming Town and Marina.
Excellent facility. Renovations are outstanding.
Our 2-night docking at Safe Harbor Oxford was as pleasant as could be. The transient slip was easily accessible, the facilities fresh and clean, the staff extremely cordial and helpful. Best of all were the surrounding views from the cockpit at every time of day.
Excellent marina, I was a weekend walk in and the dock staff, Katelyn, was very accommodating, highly highly recommend
A superb Marina! The facilities are modern , new and clean. The staff is very competent, helpful and friendly.
Dockmaster is friendly and helpful. Easy approach -- no issues with water depth in the creek at all. There is 9 feet most of the way to the slips. All new floating docks and generally refurbished marina. Creek is beautiful with lots of activities and it is an easy walk to "downtown". Definitely will return.
Great facility, new floating docks for transients, best bath house in the east, solid staff
Dockmaster was there to greet us and get us situated in our slip. Floating docks are a treat! Facilities were nice and clean, there's a beautiful pool and easy access to the pump out and fuel station. We will be coming back!
Outstanding marina staff, very clean and modern facility.
Great folks, nice docks, and quaint and beautiful town. Liked the new floating docks for us transients.
Nice folks, great facility and beautiful town. Don’t miss Morris Inn.
Very quiet and clean marina. Nice courteous staff who came down to help us tie up. Easy walk to restaurants. A great place to relax in the fall but probably busy in the summer.
Docking went smoothly and marina wonderfully peaceful. Among the best restrooms on the Bay.
It was as expected-perfect.
Great marina. Location is perfect for access to this quaint town, we walked from the marina to Docs and made our way back easily. There is a small town beach nearby for any other shell collectors and some locals were fishing perch from the pilings. Marinas bathhouse and showers were fantastic. I think the bathhouse could be fitted out more to include appliances like freezer, real cream in the fridge etc and some kind of breakfast option since the local town literally had none. It may be covid related. Our dock did not have floating docks, I understand its being updated. The team member who came out was helpful, printed out information and map for us.
Great place to stay in Oxford. The marina was very nice and people friendly. The new Bath House with Laundry and a Captain's Lounge was beautiful! Easy to get to also. Easy walk to town from there. Bike rental was a plus. Looking forward to returning next year.
Great location on the right just as you enter Town Creek. Fuel dock and shop convenient to pull up. Staff very nice and helpful. Lovely and easy walk along the shore to center of town. Over the winter, the remaining upgrades are expected to be accomplished. Will definitely be back!
Great location and awesome facilities. Within walking distance to all that we wanted to see. Very nice little town. Enjoyed the museum's self guided walking tour. Dinner at the Robert Morris Inn was excellent.
Booked through Dockwa, the marina called about 4:30 to check on our arrival time. They waited for us and helped dock us. Nicely done
Facilities were amazing! Home away from home. Showers and laundry facility were clean and new. Nice lounge area with books, TV and coffee! Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Love this Marina! Great service and attention. Miss the pool this time of year but nice restaurants nearby make for a wonderful stay.
Good marina. Friendly staff. Once more floating docks are in it will be pretty awesome!
We stopped here for a day to explore the town of Oxford. Jeff, the manager, was great. He met us on the dock, welcomed us to the town and marina and helped us tie up. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants (Capsize was outstanding) as well as all the information of what to see and do while we were there. The facilities were clean, showers and lounge were top notch. The marina is converting to floating docks and this was in process while we there but it was not noisy. This sleepy little town is very quaint and cute. The marina is centrally located. Wifi was also good at the lounge. There are picnic tables and chairs to sit outside and enjoy views of the water too.
Another great stay at Safe Harbor Oxford, Jeff always makes us feel right at home and the facilities are extremely well mainained. Can't wait for next summer when the floating docks will be finished. It should be awesome!
Nice marina. Nice people. Like the improvements they are making. Expensive fuel prices. When staying at the marina bike rentals should be free.
We were pleasantly surprised by all of the updates and improvements we found at this marina. The bath house was gorgeous, with individual rooms containing sink, toilet and shower within each, which were very large! There was plenty of countertop, benches and hooks to hold all of the necessities for cleaning up after a day at the pool and/or boating. There was also a beautiful lounge area with sofa and chairs in the building. along with a large deck outside with tables and chairs. The staff were all very helpful. Jeff and Wes were also flexible when we decided to spend another night. It was very convenient to have bikes available for rental at $2.95 per hour, and we really enjoyed exploring the historical town and local restaurants. The cuisine at each exceeded our expectations as well. We look forward to coming back when the new floating slips are completed by the pool. It was a great experience!!!
All the staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back.
The dock hands were terrific - both getting fuel, pump out and towing up. The facilities are wonderful - the new restrooms are exquisite- as is the community room. New docks going in - floating docks. Wish Oxford had more to it. Was there on a Tuesday after Labor Day and just about everything was shut down - so enjoyed the marine, the other cruisers and the bike ride around town!
Amazing staff, gorgeous & clean bath house, large pool, brand new lodge with freshly brewed morning coffee and use of bikes are just a few reasons you need to stay at Safe Harbor Oxford. Jeff and Wes went above and beyond to accommodate us, allowing us to stay an unexpected extra night. Jeff even used his personal car to drive us to dinner! Outstanding marina! We will definitely be back!
The staff are excellent and the facilities are modern and clean. The marina is in the process of replacing docks. When work in completed, the marina will be even better - looking forward to returning.
The staff was wonderful and accommodating. We initially had issues with making our reservations correctly. Wes and Jeff were gracious and assisted. While there is construction for the new docks, the grounds are well maintained. The bath and club house are new and beautiful. The restrooms were the nicest we have experienced on all of our visits to marinas. Perfect location to see the town. We can't wait for our next visit!
We look forward to returning when the construction is completed. Nice pool. More improvements are coming we were told.
Welcoming and helpful staff. Nice pool. Great party areas. Nice walk to town and restaurants
Currently under construction, this was otherwise a great stay. Until construction started in the morning, it was very quiet. The facility’s head/shower area was spacious and clean. Employees were welcoming and helpful.
Jeff, the marina manager, greeted us warmly upon arrival. He was helpful in assisting us. During our stay, he always was available for our needs. We look forward to returning when the renovations are complete.
Great marina. Can’t wait for construction to be finished - will be even betterbb
Wonderful small quiet town and marina. Beautiful facilities and helpful staff. By next year there will be awesome floating docks. Others expressed concerns about dock construction however we saw little if any disturbance and no interferences with any of our activities. Bath house is immaculate!
Great marina, highly recommend!! Close to town, good views, and cleanest bathhouse we’ve seen.
Great location. New facilities are awesome with more to come as there’s lots of new construction. Great staff
Marina is under construction but no work on weekends so it did not affect our stay. What’s been done so far looks outstanding and can’t wait to see it next year all finished. The floating piers will be a delight! Loved everything about it! Staff is wonderful! Bathhouse Facilities are best on the Bay! Great view from the pool. Sweet little town, great restaurants-simply delightful!
Construction caused some issues. We were initially placed on a slip without a starboard pylon (ask to be relocated if they give you I-3). Our second attempt had issues with the electrical. To the marina's credit: they refunded the electrical and eventually placed us on a slip with functioning power so all's well that ends well. Would return after the construction is finished as the new piers look top notch!
Very nice, clean bathroom facilities. Friendly staff
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, very nice facilities. Captain's Lounge is outstanding.
Friendly staff, quaint marina, nice place to relax. Shower facilities are wonderful-completely redone and spacious. Pool is nice, but could use a bigger seating area. Breakfast options in Oxford are very slim, if any-recommend bringing food onboard. Dinner options are plentiful and the creamery is a must! We will be back!
This is the place to go for fuel during COVID-19 the dockhands katelyn handed the gas pump over to me with a clorox wipe and wiped down the pump after I was done fueling very clean and professional for these times it was safe and great thanks
Great Staff, great new clubhouse and shower facilities. The locals and the other transients are all "boaters", not shirtless idiots on Sea Rays drinking out of plastic cups with loud music. Good to see that they are apparently planning to convert to floating docks, this would be wonderful. My home base is Safe Harbors Zahnisers in Solomons, and I hope they follow the leader. And love Oxford, Robert Morris, Pope's, the setting sun over the Tred Avon, the rising sun, the watermen departing at dawn. All.
Have been stopping at this marine for 20+ years and always liked it. Great service, great location, friendly competent staff. The relatively new heads/shower building is by far the nicest I have ever seen at a marina! As others have noticed there is construction going on during the day as they upgrade to floating docks. The today we were there the pool was rather noisy as they were working next to it. Also considering this was in the middle of the Covid crisis and the staff had a handout with safety rules for guests, at no point did I see a staff member with a face mask either indoor or outdoor. However, in the the few retail businesses in the rest of the town there was attention paid to this issue by the store staff. I hope the marina staff pays more attention to this issue until he crisis subsides as everything else was excellent. NOTE: Safe Harbor corporate leadership does not make it easy to contact them on such feedback issues: No message capability on their Twitter page (https://twitter.com/wearesafeharbor) and no readily findable way to send feedback on their website (https://shmarinas.com/) Both are common on firms selling to consumers.
Nice place. As always. Construction looks to be going well. The best crew. Worked very hard this weekend. Us and our buddies recognized Eli and Katelyn from last year. Working hard as ever.
Very nice facility despite some temporary construction. Staff very helpful. Nice clean bath and shower facilities. Complementary coffee. Will come again.
Great personnel. Jeff was terrific. The pool was refreshing. Excellent amenities. Another great stay.
Great location with lovely pool. Beautiful bath house and deck with grill and tables. Friendly, helpful staff.
I was there on Sat, July 4th as part of a group of 4 boats on an Independence Day weekend cruise. Before the trip, some of our group had reservations about coming to the marina given the construction and previous comments. However, Jeff assured us that construction equipment would be out of the way and they could accommodate us. I have to say he went beyond our expectations to put our group close together and do everything he (and the rest of the staff) could do to make the experience a good one for us. The pool, clubhouse, bathhouse and pavilion areas were clean when we arrived and then were inspected regularly. Thanks for putting so much effort into customer service!
The Dock crew was very helpful as where all the staff. The facilities were clean and up to date and we really enjoyed the pool. We were a large group so having the grill area for our group dinner and breakfast was a real plus. I was very impress to see the staff cleaning the grill the next morning!
Great as always! Staff are superb.
We knew about the construction going in, and we're very pleased with everything. Once complete, the investment in the marina should make the marina even better.
my husband and I came in over night. the walk from the dock to the office to check in was lengthy but doable. my concern lies in what we heard when we checked in.. as we entered the office the dock master and one of his dockhands were discussing current events in our country. the boy was going on about the protests and making, to be blunt, shockingly racist comments. the things he said were not only offensive to people of color but cruel. wishing death upon people was when it really broke my heart. the work place is NOT the place for expressing political opinions! I find it difficult to state my disappointment to see that Safe Harbor allows open racism on the job.
Nice facility, but they are improving it more. I would definitely stay here again.
Jeff, manning the desk, was very helpful and accommodating. Lot's of construction, but not a big deal to me; ongoing improvements is a good thing. Pool is elevated with a great view of Town Creek. Nice place to relax. Capsize bar/restaurant next door was good; food good, staff friendly. Docs, in town, is also excellent. Bicycles available for rent make for a great day of exploring Oxford, or if adventurous, taking the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry across the river. We will be back.
Nice pleasant staff. Not a good value at all compared to other marinas close by. No discount for weekday stays. Terrible dirty tiny bath house. Marina is under construction June 2020 so transient slips must go to the yard which is literally 1/4 mile away from the pool. That said, there was a wonderful restaurant next door named capsize.
It's a very nice place to visit. marina is under construction, but that's ok, they want to improve the property so you just got to deal. Never made it to the pool, but walking around the town oxford is awsome! we will be back
Came in this morning and the wind was heavy. Two dockhands were standing on the fuel dock. The wind blew me into the corner for a rough dockage. The young lady, Kaitlyn, worked very hard to help me in. Yet, the blonde young man who was also there stood and watched as we struggled. When he then took another boat Kaitlyn was left to assist them off and straighten up the dock lines, all the while continuing to help me as well. A big thanks to her for all her help though the work seemed unevenly distributed. Thanks.
We've stayed here before and loved it. To the dockmaster, it would be helpful if you posted here or on your website the construction and opening plan (when will pool and other facilities be open). We hope to return in mid July! Thanks
Realize the marina is under renovation but a little effort to ease the inconvenience would have been appreciated. For the time being it is a good hike t through the construction to the office and the bath house. Power reliability is dodgy. At full price I might have expected at least an effort to move people from the boat yard docks to the office via golf cart or free bikes. Will be nice eventually but can’t recommend this marina this season.
Obviously I can't give it a 5 star since the marina is in the middle of a major renovation and due to Covid the services are somewhat shutdown. That said, everyone was very helpful and happy. We look forward to the "new" facilities and will return when complete. The "H" dock was pleasant but there were numerous power cables in the water, dock power lines submerged at high tide--all of which is a concern for stray current issues. Also, initially we were told you had no functioning pumpout stations, then after we were there we were told over on "I" dock there was a pumpout hose. The marina did loan us a longer shore power cable so we could plug in without backing into the slip and that was much appreciated.
Very disappointing. Entire marina is under construction: new bulkheads, pilings, docks and landscaping. New bath house and pool closed. Limited transient slips only at the boatyard docks. Would have been nice if they communicated this when making reservations. Wait til 2021, will probably be much nicer then!
We are a fuel only stop, as we dock close by. The staff are consistently attentive, skilled at assisting with docking, friendly, and competent. We’ll be there tomorrow morning to fuel up for a trip south! Always a stop for us. Thanks!
We came to Oxford 10/7, after dragging anchor on a 20+ knot windy evening in San Domingo Creek 10. We called some marinas in Oxford, but they were all closed. I saw a t-head open and tied there for the night, We checked in using dockwa that evening and the next morning we checked in with the dock-master. The docks are a little dated and could use a few new boards. Always a pleasant stay. Bath house and showers are first class. Additional bathrooms and showers are attached to the fuel dock next to the pool. There is also a club room with large flat screen, that I did not take advantage of. This marina is across the street from the Strand where awesome sunsets are viewed. The dock master and dock hands are great, always helpful and pleasant. Oxford is a favorite stop for us coming from Solomon's, Md. There are marina sponsored activities several times during the summer. The marina is pet friendly. This past trip 10/27-10/28 we biked to the community center to watch the midnight play Rocky Horror Picture Show. We replaced our 35 pound scoop anchor for our 40' sailboat with a 66 pound Bruce. Wife said no more anchor dragging.
Quaint town makes this a great stop. Lovely picnic area, clean showers/laundry, and personable dock staff (Jeff) made our stay comfortable.
Friendly staff and a great location. New clubhouse, heads and laundry room. Docks need work but I understand a renovation is in the plans. The Wifi is good but not great. Maybe they will switch to ONSPOT?
Easy access. Great showers. Nice quiet town. End of season empty streets !
Very friendly and helpful staff. The bathrooms were fantastic - clean, large and well organised. Easy walk into Oxford for sunset drinks at Doc and morning coffees at The Oxford Social . Would definitely recommend to all cruisers!
Best showers on the Bay.
The stay here is always a good, easy experience. Courteous and Helpful Staff, Best Shower and Bathrooms on the Bay, easy walk into town. The only place we sstay when we go to Oxford.
Bathhouses were amazing! I loved how clean and nice they were and that each shower facility was private. And that there were a lot of washers/driers. The separate lounge area was very nice - has a huge smart TV, coffee, tea , toaster oven, books The pool was very clean and refreshing. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to come back. Near dining and shops. They also have grills, horse shoes and corn hole available.
This is now one of my favor marinas. I liked it so much I stay an extra day. The staff is friendly, the bathroom and showers are the best of any marinas so far. Beautiful location, a well stocked boat store at the boat yard. The town of Oxford is very nice, grocery store and places to eat are very close to the marina.
A gem on the Choptank River. Nicely located up the Tred Avon River, this small but efficient marina provides a safe location and comfortable facilities. The bath house is one of the finest. Jeff and staff are ready to help. This was our second visit of many more to come.
My second time here this past weekend. Made a last minute reservation for Labor Day and they had space available! Very responsive beforehand on the phone, and very responsive when raised on VHF for docking assignment. And, they have the most luxurious facilities to boot. Add in Oxford, with its great restaurants and history, and you can't go wrong.
This is a total bait and switch. If you are a larger boat, they will put you at Brewers Boatyard which is quite the distance from the nice bathhouses, clubhouse and swimming pool. To get to the main marina, you have to walk out to the main road, pass a public beach and some condos to get to the entrance. The view from the boatyard is terrible, there aren’t grills or grassy areas with tables. This should be listed as a separate marina since the amenities are no where near the same. If I wanted to spend my evening in a boatyard with a huge gravel parking lot behind the dock and a huge red boat lift in the way...then this would have met my needs. Yuck!!!!
What a cute place! Love the view and the pool and the coffee in the morning. Eli and Katelyn (I hope I got their names right) were a huge help! Friendliest dock staff I’ve ever come across! We will be back soon!
Great marina with pool, huge bathrooms/showers, free coffee and great service. Second time here.
First off, they handled our docking in a 30+ squall with skill and confidence. Once that passed, they were cheerful and helpful. The showers have been updated and may be the best on the Bay. The adjacent relaxing room is a very nice touch, with free coffee and tables inside and out on a veranda to enjoy an evening before heading into town for dinner.
Took shelter at safe harbor oxford during this particularly windy weekend. Came in after hours but marina was proactive in giving me the information I would need beforehand. Facilities were clean and well managed. Staff appeared to be mostly for show as two boys couldn’t ring me up for a simple toiletry item until a young woman, Katelyn, rushed out to help me in their place. I suppose that’s just the service you get from summer employees but she covered for them well and even gave us a hand off the dock. Ultimately a pleasant experience. 4/5
Very pleasant people and particularly helpful mechanic. Docks and electrical appear to need update.
Tucumseh crew We Love Oxford and really love Safe Harbor Marina. Great place,swimming, bikes, walks, restaurants and the ice cream! Make this one of your favorite destinations like we do. Great job Jeff! Love this place
We had a super weekend at Safe Harbor Oxford. We had high expectations from reading the reviews and the marina and staff met those expectations. As we had hoped, we were lucky enough to have the famous ”Katelyn” help us in. She was as helpful as the reviews said she would be. The town was particularly active this weekend but just as welcoming as always. Great vacation spot.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. Jeff, the dockmaster, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. This marina has, by far, the nicest, newest, and cleanest showers/restrooms on the Chesapeake. Loved this stop. Lovely little beach within walking distance. Also a dog-friendly and very good restaurant you can walk to (Capsize). Enjoyed walking into the tiny town, getting sandwiches at the local deli (where you can also purchase wine, beer and some groceries.). Sat in the lovely waterside park at the picnic tables and savored the view. Uber/Lyft options not readily available if you want to go to other restaurants—only downside. Highly recommend Oxford Marina.
staff, location, facility..Top notch!! Free local tomatoes too..
Great Staff, bike ride distance from town, walk to public beach. Excellent facilities
We came in with a single engine and it is usually very difficult for dock staff to properly help us out. Katelyn and Annie did a superb job at getting us in, they’ve been the best yet. The facility was beautiful and well kept. Pool felt great in this heat.
A lot of money and attention has been spent on amenities such as the pool, clubhouse and picnic area. This was wonderful and greatly appreciated. Now it is time to pay attention to the fundamental underpinnings of the marina structure. The finger docks are wobbly and borderline unsafe. The pilings are also weak.
The marine seems to be a bit under staffed. We came in for fuel this morning and Katelyn was the only one at the dock office. She took 3 boats at once and ran the radio. However, she did an excellent job and never missed a beat. Very hard working. Thanks.
Dock crew were very polite and helpful.
Great marina in Oxford with easy access to many excellent restaurants nearby. Excellent service by Jeff and all of the dock hands. One of our favorite stops!!
The staff at the oxford marina got me taken care of quickly despite a busy day. Kaitlyn is a pro with the ropes, best clove hitch I’ve ever seen.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable; the bathhouse was very large, clean and beautiful; the view from the marina was incredible; and the location was ideal since it was in walking distance of restaurants, shopping and a public beach.
Stayed at Safe Harbor Oxford with some friends over the weekend and it was very enjoyable. Katelyn helped us tie up and it is so nice to see a dockhand who knows what she’s doing. I will definitely recommend the marina!
We love visiting Oxford Brewer (Safe Harbor Oxford) marina. The staff are always exceptional and very accommodating, beautiful pool, and, of course, the wonderful new, always clean bath house & club room. We typically visit multiple times a season and have never been disappointed in the least.
Awesome place with phenomenal service
Jeff was exceptionally helpful and facilities were excellent.
Beautiful marina with helpful staff. Kaitlyn was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Will definitely be back with friends in the future.
Super marina. Great staff. Fantastic amenities. Great location. Our experience at Safe Harbor has be memorably enjoyable from the time I hailed to checkout.
Great marina! Friendly and very helpful as we arrived during a storm. Very clean. We will be back!
We had a really nice visit to Oxford and Safe Harbor Oxford marina. The approach from the channel was easy and the staff gave clear and accurate instructions over the radio. The fixed pier was in very good condition and we had no problem getting securely into our slip. The clubhouse, including bathrooms and showers, appeared to be quite new and very nice, and the pool was clean and very welcome on a very hot day. Jeff, the marina manager, and his dockhand (whose name I don't recall) were great, and Jeff even gave us a ride to Doc's for dinner. All in all, a very good experience and we'd definitely stay here again on a return visit to Oxford.
I couldn’t leave a tip for the great help today, so I thought I’d leave a review instead! Katelyn had a friendly smile and energy that you just don’t see these days. Katelyn, if you get a well deserved raise from this review then consider it your tip!
I came in for fuel a couple weeks back and I’ve got to say that the staff needs some serious customer service training. Katelyn was great, real friendly, I think she’s been there for a while now. But the new girl could afford to crack a smile once in a while. The attitude really made the place seem less than welcoming for the first time in a while.
Very enjoyable stay. Marina is well located in a protected basin, and staff is helpful. But it's October. Be aware that local restaurants have reduced hours, but marina staff advises that local restaurants will pick up customers if asked.
very nice staff. Extraordinarily clean and nice bathhouse. we'll be back!
Spa style bathrooms! Wonderful! Clean, clean, clean! Nicely affordable washers and dryers. Great people!
Our third stay at this safe harbor marina was just as nice as our last two experiences. Although we had short notice of their need for a slip on this weekend, JeffThe manager was able to accommodate us.
Excellent service, beautiful, well-maintained accommodations, all dock help were knowledgeable and courteous. Bath house clean and fresh.
Excellent. Will go back again!!
We stayed here last week for the first time in a few years. The new shower/head combos are awesome and among the best in the bay. The nearby club room with free coffee was a plus. We had to leave a day early due to weather coming in. Jeff was gracious. We got our refund notice immediately. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to Oxford.
A wonderful facility, extremely accomodaing friendly staff, nicest showers on the East Coast
Had a wonderful stay! Beautiful marina and fantastic help!!!
Always a pleasure. I have visited the marina every year and the attention and warmth by the staff is great. Will always recommend to visit this marina. Will not be disappointed.
Nice, quiet marina with great amenities. The bathrooms are really nice! The pool is great for kids and there is a small beach across the street. The ice cream shop, Scottish Highlands, and restaurant, Capsize, next door are really good.
Very professional staff and outstanding facilities at our favorite town on the Eastern Shore.
Safe Harbor's Brewer Oxford Marina is one of the best stops in the middle Chesapeake/Choptank River you'll find. There facilities are excellent, with gorgeous bath houses, a beautiful lounge area, well maintained docks, and a very helpful staff. Fuel and pump outs are available and very convenient to access. Located in the protected waters of Town Creek, off the Tred Avon river, transients can enjoy a peaceful nights sleep with minimal rocking and rolling due to weather and passing boats. The pool is delightful, and many excellent restaurants are within an easy walk into town. The marina also has a fleet of excellent bikes that can be rented hourly or by the day. The only knock on this marina is the cancellation policy of 72 hours, which is considerably longer than most stops on the bay.
My wife and I have cruised all over the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva peninsula visiting numerous marina. The Oxford marina which we recently visited was by far and away one of the best. Their showers, restrooms, lounge area are unequaled anywhere. Their staff are helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. And its location is most pleasant. Call my waters. Great small town. Good local restaurants. And close to so many other boating destinations. We will definitely be back!
What an excellent visit. We spent two nights (July 5and 6) and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The facilities are first rate--as good as any we've found on the Chesapeake Bay. And the harbor master and his crew were not only helpful they were pleasant and cordial. Just an excellent experience. Thank you.
We stayed a very pleasant 2 nights at Brewers over the 4th of July in the midst of a miserable heatwave. For that reason, nearly all our time in Oxford was spent in or near the pool. The Pool, Clubhouse and Marina bathhouse are first class. The marina staff are very helpful and even gave us a ride to the market which we would likely have walked to in more comfortable temps. On the downside, Brewers docks are separated and transients are usually on the Boatyard docks, which are a short walk from the upgraded marina facilities. The boatyard bathhouse is not even a close second compared to the marina side, which is unfortunate when its 100 degrees so you are sweaty again by the time you get back to the boat. There is a great restaurant (Capsize) and Ice Cream (Highland Creamery) that are on the Boatyard side, so there are advantages to that side as well. In less brutal heat, these observations wouldn't be of much concern. Brewers was a very nice experience and we won't hesitate to visit again and will recommend to anyone looking to visit Oxford.
Radioed the fuel dock and got a prompt response. Had 3 dock hands to help us tie up. One very professional young woman stood out, Katie. She was sweet and knowledgable, helped us fuel up, pump out and delivered ice to the boat. Refreshing to see friendly smiling faces that know how to handle all sizes of boats. We will definitely return. Thanks Katie!
We were presently surprised. Wes and two pleasant dock hands were excellent in taking care of our arrival needs. Their new relax and comfort rooms are classy hotel quality. For sure, the port of Oxford is now a new destination regular for us.
Our 5 year old had an accident (everything ended up being ok :) leaving Trippe Creek and we needed to find a marina and get to the hospital in Easton. I called Brewers and Jeff was so sweet and helpful. He immediately got us a slip, was there to help us dock and make sure we were OK. He brought ice for my daughter's arm and even had Annie (who is awesome and always has a smile) drive us to Easton AND pick us up several hours later. I can't say enough about how kind and professional everyone was. Yes the bathhouse is AWESOME and the pool view is one of the best on the Bay, but it was the staff who made it truly 5 star. Thanks Brewers!!! We will be back. MS
Nicest bathrooms and showers I’ve ever seen. Not kidding. Good pool and picnic areas with grills. Friendly staff. Close to a good restaurant and excellent ice cream.
Very nice marina, great facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere and very clean. Highly recommended!
Lovely marina. Great staff. Doesn’t get any better
Perfect spot. Marina has great charm along with super club room and top notch bathrooms and showers. Service was good too. Plus there's a boatyard right next store under the same mgmt. Not cheap but worth it.
Nice staff and a great location. Also some of the best bathrooms on the bay!
Great place to stay and the staff was just wonderful. Bath house is like a 5 star hotel bathroom. We will be back soon.
Once again, very pleasant stay at one of our favorite marinas on the Bay. Everything from making reservations on Dockwa to accommodating the dockage we wanted next to our cruising companions, and help docking worked out perfectly. Beautiful new showers, restrooms and social lounge are icing on the cake. Also, great area to walk the dogs! Our thanks to everyone from Graham to Jeff and Jay for making the whole experience a perfect one.
Enjoyed 3 days in Oxford. Marina and boatyard were spotless. Dockhands and Samantha most professional and friendly. Jeff was very helpful to all our needs. The boathouse and shower facilities were the most luxurious I have seen . Like being in your own bathroom, only cleaner and larger. I would have loved to use their grills and outdoor pool but the restaurants in town were too good. Rent a bike and cycle to St. Michaels!
jeff and staff were excellent. bath house is the best on the bay. captain wayne irishwake marine service.
Very helpful staff. Fabulous laundry and bathroom facilities that were Spotless, modern and roomy. Spa-like environment.
Great staff, super new clubhouse with the best bath/shower rooms on the Bay. Oxford is one of the nicest towns on the Chesapeake - quaint town, good restaurants, beautiful views!
HAd a warm welcome from Chris who helped us with the lines, etc. He went to the office to get our info pack, we did not even have to visit the office whicj was convenient. He told us about the Restaurant CAPSIZE which was nice. Location is great...we just need to spend more than 1 night in Oxford. We will be back
Very nice, and helpful staff. The bathrooms and showers are modern and well maintained.
Clean, nice Facilities, helpful dockhands, quiet, beautiful short walk to the yacht club and the Robert Morris Inn. Will stay here again when visiting Oxford!
Great marina. We stayed for two nights in August. Nice accommodations and very friendly staff. I'd visit again- very reasonable rates!!
This marina is a very nice place to stay! Quiet and calm. We can actually see water on other side from our dock. Nice walk around town. The beach is a short walk to hang out. The new restaurant Capsize, was very good. It even had doggie menu! Then the ice creamery was awesome. Anyway, the ,Ariana has beautiful facilities! Bathroom was my favorite! Feeling so luxury. It even has a tv room! Thank you for a wonderful service too!
Wonderful new facilities, very helpful staff, nice picnic area and air conditioned meeting room. We will be back!
Brewer Oxford Marina is our favorite place on Chesapeake, that we visit several times a year. It has a beautiful layout, with the swimming pool and covered patio both with the view of the river, airconditioned club house, and other advantages over other marinas we have visited. The marina's staff is extremely helpful, friendly and provides top service. Recommend to everyone who is boating on the bay. SE
Clean, accommodating, friendly, marina with professional staff. Easy access to fuel and pump out docks. Very nice picnic area. Lovely restrooms, showers, lounge completely remodeled and well kept. Great location in Oxford MD to walk around, to the beach, restaurants, etc. Lovely town. Enjoy every visit.
Great marina. Looking forward to another visit. Only issue was a breaker on the power pole. Loved seeing The skipjacks getting ready to race.
Pool and very nice restrooms. Friendly staff. Good restaurant within 5 min walk.
Great spot, friendly and helpful staff, and great bathhouse/lounge. We'll be back!
The new facilities are excellent
Thoroughly enjoyed the marina and its many amenities!! The new( to us) lounge and rest rooms were beautiful and very user friendly! The staff was knowledgable , gracious , and helpful!! We'll look forward to returning to this lovely facility in the quiet town that we so enjoy!
Very nice marina, nice facilities. We will return and spend more time there.
We have stayed at Brewers many times, and it is our favorite marina on the Chesapeake. The staff is friendly and helpful, the wifi actually works and the pool is a refreshing treat after a long day on the water. The new bathhouse, lounge and laundry facility are amazing. It is a close walk to town, or there are grills and picnic tables to use. I highly recommend a visit - and the Highland Creamery is within an easy walking distance!
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent, and the Club room and bathhouse is exceptional. The gas dock is easy to get in and out of quickly. The pool is a nice amenity, as is the picnic and grilling area!
Delightful experience from beginning to end. We were there during the scorching hot July 4th weekend which meant a lot of lounging by the pool (great view of incoming boats). There is a new, beautiful structure which includes bath rooms and a common room. The bath rooms are worthy of a 5 star hotel - roomy, clean, luxurious. The common room is elegant, spacious with gorgeous views, comfortable furniture and flat screen. There are bikes for rent to explore Oxford. But the best part is the staff. Friendly, courteous, efficient, accommodating. From the manager to the dock staff - everyone was so nice! I hope to see all of them when we return in the Fall.
Great facility, with outstanding customer-service. Continental breakfast is served in the morning, heads are super cleaning, pool is well-kept, and they have bicycles to loan. Very friendly staff, can't wrong staying here.
Marvelous marina - everything you'd want. From reservations to docking to accommodations to general condition of the facility - looking forward to returning. Zach, the fuel dock attendant was especially courteous & helpful - DWA
Wasn't aware that Mears was under new ownership and management. Had a hard time trying to make a reservation, since now everything has to go through Dockwa. So, just showed up and hoped they would have space. Pleasantly surprised by staff and new, improved facilities. Actually, new bath house was almost too opulent, but we can't complain. Very clean, comfortable and a welcome place to hang out during two days of rain. Everything was great, except reservation system. Why can't they just take a phone call?
