Beautiful facility and incredibly helpful and friendly staff.

Safe Harbor Rockland is absolutely top notch. Everyone from the employees you interact with on the dock, to those in the back office, are extremely friendly and very accommodating. Dock-master Chris and his dockhand, Melvin, went far above and beyond with every interaction we had. They took VERY good care of us!!!! We moored at Safe Harbor for the season. The amenities are incredible. Bath house is extremely clean and towels, bath mats, and extra items such as soap, shampoo, q-tips, etc are always on hand and easily accessible at no cost. The laundry facility is amazing as well. Truly can’t say enough good things about this marina. We look forward to returning for the season next year!

Safe Harbor Rockland is a true gem of a marina. We travel the world stopping at different marinas and facilities and Rockland is at the top of our list of favorites. The staff here are incredibly accommodating and go out of their way to make sure our stay is perfect. The docks are in excellent condition already and I'm looking forward to visiting again when the new docks are in. If you're cruising in the Rockland area, Safe Harbor is a must stop.

Dockmaster Chris and staff are terrific. The facility is lovely with top notch restrooms, showers, and laundry. Exceptionally clean with towels and toiletries. Dock is well protected. They gave us a courtesy car so we could drive to purchase provisions. Great restaurant on the grounds as well. We really enjoyed our stay!

We’ve been at a lot of marinas from Florida to Maine and Safe Harbor Rockland is simply the best! It’s location in Rockland Harbor is perfect - right on the Harbor Walk, close enough to town and Hamilton Marine to walk, but far enough away to be a quiet marina. Amenities like the best bathrooms in Rockland, laundry facilities, courtesy car, grill and seating area, and a restaurant at the top of the pier make this marina exceptional! We enjoyed our quick visit a few years ago so much that we are now seasonally based at Safe Harbor Rockland. While the facilities are great it’s the people who make the difference. Chris, Melvin, Brady, and Havana bend over backwards to make sure everything is tip-top. This year’s almost over and we look forward to returning next summer!

Our favorite Marina in Maine. Chris and his crew are helpful, attentive and friendly. Whether you are on a Mooring or at the dock the amenities are first class. Fabulous clean bath house. Showers with towels, bath mats and any toiletries you may have forgotten. Free laundry ! Courtesy cars are brand new and seem to always be available. The walk to town is quick. This is a Marina we will stop at any time we are cruising in Maine. Bonus is the great restaurant at the Marina. SV Skalliwag

I cannot speak highly enough about Safe Harbor Rockland. Chris, the dockmaster, and Melvin, the #1 seasoned dockhand, are absolutely incredible. From the moment they tie you up, they are constantly asking if there is anything else they can do. Melvin would stop by the boat several times a day to check on us and see if there was anything we needed. The showers are some of the best we’ve seen. They include towel, floor mats, personal products and are impeccably clean. There’s no charge to use the washers and dryers which is the first we’ve seen in our cruising days. It is a short walk into town which is nice for the exercise and it is also much quieter there than the marinas on the town docks. And if you don’t want to walk they have courtesy cars which are one year old Ford Explorers. I wish I had a car that nice. They are getting ready to do a major expansion of this marina and I would encourage everyone to consider it if they’re staying in Rockland. Totally a first class operation!

Fantastic marina. The staff is friendly and helpful. The heads, showers, and laundry are spotless and well stocked. (there was even a hair dryer!). Excellent courtesy vehicle. The only thing to note is that the moorings are fairly far out from the marina. Rockland is a great little town to explore with a fantastic art museum.

Good facilities, dock hands good and helpful, but since the takeover they seem to be employing younger inexperienced people to run their office, disorganized and didn't know much. Pump out no longer offered - should be removed from the advertised services. Unfortunately a 120' power palace got docked stern-on to our cockpit and decided to run their generator all day and night so our cockpit was flooded with fumes and noise all night. Staff could have told then to dock the other way round so they didn't ruin the stay for us.

Marina Response:
Hi there Ian, I'm sorry to hear about your experience. My name is Chris the Dockmaster here at Safe Harbor Rockland. I could not be there Friday due to certain circumstances. I apologize for your experience with the Dock Staff in the office. Our Pump Out system is being fixed and should be running very soon. The service will still be offered. I hope you give us another chance to serve you better in the future. Thanks so much --- Chris Benedict

This marina offers a good view of the harbor and a pleasant walk downtown. Our 37' would have fit nicely into a berth. We came on the 124' which overhung it's berth and we might have disturbed other customers because we ran a gen all night. However, we would certainly bring either vesel back to this marina.

Is a rocky harbor and if you are on the moorings can be bumpy The stuff at the marina is super helpful and going beyond their duties. We came after hour and in rough condition , but we were helped. Very responsive. One bummer is lack of launch . You can Call Rockland yach club but is very expensive and works until 8pm. We paid $10 per person one way .

We love this marina…store our boat here over the winter and leave a punch list for minor repairs which are always complete. Safe Harbor Marinas are a class act…not cheap, but in our opinion worth the premium.

This marina is small but the people who work there are excellent. They are helpful, knowledgeable and have high standards. The docks and shower/bathroom facilities are all top notch. It is easy to get in and out, and I got clear instructions when I called from a mile out.They sent email with all the details in advance and called me as well. I like the Safe Harbor marinas I have been too. This is now my go-to marina for going up the coast; I’ll be there again next week.

On a mooring, very solid and safe. It’s a quick dinghy ride into the dock. A dedicated dinghy dock would nice, but we always find space between the big boats. Clean, new showers and laundry. Easy walk into town. Hamilton Marine is close by for supplies. We love the Brass Compass for breakfast.

This is our third time staying at this marina. We love it here! They are going through some growing pains. This time was not as good as it could’ve been. We could not get 50 amp power hooked up. And water was too far away from our boat to hook up. The dock hands are a bit under trained and the bathrooms were not as clean or stocked. Hopefully this is temporary. Bonnie and her husband are very nice and accommodating. We will be back next time we’re in Rockland!

Update 08/16 - Another great stay at Safe Harbor Rockland. We really appreciate the hospitality of the staff and the clean facilities. Mooring ball was relatively new, easy to find and pick up. There was plenty of swing room for our 51’ trawler. Dock space for landing dinghy was limited, but we always found a spot. Laundry machines (2 washers, 2 dryers) were in good condition and free. Bathrooms were roomy and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Safe Harbor Rockland to wait out the passage of tropical storm Elsa through Maine. The dock staff went above and beyond to make sure our boat was safely tied to the dock, helping with boat lines and even providing an additional fender to keep the boat off the dock. The bathrooms, showers and laundry facility were the best we have experienced in Maine (so far). Very nicely done. Interesting that there was no charge for the laundry. That was a nice touch. Yes, we will be back.

We usually do not write reviews but this marina was exceptional and we felt the need to share our experience! The staff were helpful before we even landed on the docks - they were there to grab lines and welcome us. The marina is very protected and convenient to downtown Rockland. The facilities were top notch with the best bathrooms we’ve seen in all our Maine cruising experience - they provide towels, soaps, razors, everything you need! The laundry is FREE and greatly appreciated. The pier has a grill for visiting boats to use and even a courtesy car (although we did not need it). All of this at a competitive rate per foot. Thank you Yachting Solutions for all of your services and courtesy - great customer service by everyone we met. Cheers!

What a great marina. We were passing through from RI and stayed 2 nights. Bonnie and Bill were great hosts. Dock attendants, Marshall, Austin, Taylor and Jess could not have been nicer. Cleanest and nicest bathrooms I’ve seen at a marina with free toothpaste, razors, soap, shampoo. And get this, even a courtesy car to use anytime. They also arranged for some minor repairs on my boat while there with some very nice and accommodating mechanics. This is a standout marina. Not to mention the beautiful town of Rockland. Be sure to stay here if you’re in the area. Don’t miss the Wyeth Center in town at the Farnsworth Museum. Free on the first Friday of every month!

This is, by far, one of the very best marina facilities I have ever used. Vincent is amazing and willing to do whatever is necessary to improve your stay and manage dock space. The dock amenities are truly beautiful including a shaded sitting area and barbecue grill and sink. Cold beer is waiting in the cooler. The shower/bathing facilities are wonderful and everything is immaculately clean. There is a fabulous Nespresso coffee machine available as well. Use of laundry equipment is included in the dock fee, so no digging around for quarters to wash clothes. I was offered a Yachting Solutions courtesy car when I had to take care of some business around 10 minutes away. If headed to Rockland, look no further for marina options--stay at Yachting Solutions Boat Basin. You won't regret it.
