Nice marina, friendly Dock Master (Chris), met us to tie up even after normal closing times. Mostly sheltered from wakes. Good wifi, 4 showers total, clean and spacious, even complimentary coffee in the lounge area and towels were provided. Adjacent restaurant, but easy walk to downtown for many others. (don't wait past 8 pm though). Our first stay at a Safe Harbor dock, so was impressed with the level of cleanliness and hospitality. Hopefully this is what we'll see at others too!

We loved our experience at the slip. Chris, Melvin, Joe, Lulu are the best. We were able to get the courtesy car and head out to see The Olson House--where Andrew Wyeth painted his famous "Christina's World" painting. The facilities are amazing--fully equipped showers and bathrooms, walking distance to the main street of Rockland--great restaurants, especially enjoyed Me Lon Togo (I love Togo)--wonderfully authentic cuisine from West Africa--and music. Chef Jordan plays drums to accompany a guitarist--an experience not to be missed!

I stayed at one of the moorings. They sent me a message before my arrival with mooring assignment, map of mooring field. Also sent an email with information about their marina and the town. The marina is located south of town, but it is an easy walk along the harbor. Was a great opportunity to stretch the legs. If you are looking for a meal off the boat, I recommend Archers.

Safe Harbor Rockland provides an extraordinary level of service to the visiting yachtsman. The shower facility is spotless and provide fresh towels, laundry is free, courtesy car available, staff helpful, pleasant and willing to go the extra mile. Some of the higher priced facilities on the East coast could take a page from their book. Rockland is a worthwhile stop for those in need supplies and bit of culture at the Farnsworth Museum, and it’s nice to see an active, working waterfront.

Exceptional! We’ve been sailing the coast from Portland to Rockland, and Safe Harbor Rockland is in a class all their own. All the amenities are as advertised. Very clean showers (fresh towels included!) and the complimentary laundry machines are in excellent condition. The docks themselves are like new with easy access to water hoses and shore power hookups. The facility is located at the end of a pleasant walking path along the harbor that leads into town (10 minute walk to great coffee, baked goods, dining, and shops). We also were able to utilize the courtesy vehicle for a trip to Hannaford for some groceries. Best of all, is the service provided by the staff! Dockhands Lulu and Joe were waiting on the dock with Dockmaster Chris as we approached. They caught our lines for a smooth docking and provided warm greetings. They provided service from the start by offering and then hooking up ur vessel to shore power. Lulu provided us a written card with passcodes and WiFi access (their WiFi signal is excellent). We enjoyed our evening so much the we stayed an extra day. On a return sail from North Haven (highly recommend), we were a bit slow and had a 1900 arrival (closing time). I called the marina and dockhand Brady was there to catch our lines and hook up shore power. I can’t say enough how enjoyable our stay was due to the excellent staff! We will definitely return and highly recommend SH if Rockland is one of your cruising destinations.

In particular the restrooms and showers were in great condition, had fresh flowers and unusual in my experience, towels, shampoo and soap were provided. Make up remover was even provided for the ladies. In the laundry room the washers and dryers were new and were available at no cost; as well detergent etc again was available at no cost.

Staff, facilities, location, could not have been better. Absolutely top notch facility. Grocery and hardware store are a good way away so the loaner car was really helpful. It is Maine so the weather was to be expected. Staff was available, helpful, and responsive beyond our expectations. Small facility currently, with permits and intentions to move ahead with a significant expansion. Great convenient location with easy walking access to Rockland facilities including the Farnsworth Museum, fuel, large marine repair facilities, a restored theater, a vibrant downtown noticeably scant in the typical tourist trappings.

I've had only good experiences in Safe Harbor Rockland. The staff is beyond helpful and dedicated (Chris, Melvin - thank you so much!), going the extra mile to help with transportation, boat issues, deliveries, and so on that seem to come up while cruising. Also, the laundry and bathroom facilities are always pristine and well supplied - best I've ever seen anywhere in a marina. One small but very appreciated detail is that they provide fresh towels for showers, which can be wonderful up in Maine in early or late season, when condensation can be an issue and towels just don't dry easily on a boat. Many thanks to Safe Harbor Rockland staff.

We had a great experience at Safe Harbor Rockland. We stayed a couple of nights at the dock and a few more on a mooring. Chris and the dock crew are all extremely friendly, helpful and encouraging. The facilities are excellent and include amenities not offered at many other amenities. Tip: they have moorings closer to the marina and a few over by the breakwater. Our nights near the marina made coming to shore more convenient but we had less ferry boat rocking near the breakwater. Thank you again to all of the dock crew!

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 .

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.

Loved our stay at Safe Harbor Rockland! The crew here went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They came out and helped make sure we were safely on our ball, gave us a car loaner, and provided beautiful bathroom facilities with towels, razors, shampoo, and even makeup remover! Great restaurant right off their dock..... can't be beat.

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!

Best experience at a marina traveling the east coast so far! Protected waters. Guesthouse was the nicest we have ever used. Spa equivalent shampoo, conditioner, body wash supplied. Hair dryer, razors, towels supplied if you need them. Free laundry. Free coffee in the mornings. Brand new courtesy car to use. Nice outdoor furniture seating area with fire pit and bbq grill to use. Great on site restaurant. Special thanks to Dock attendant, Havana, for all his help. The owners even came out and introduced themselves. We will definitely be back!

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.

Very nice staff and great facilities. Free ice, free laundry, free courtesy car. Top notch operation. We needed a diver to check a through hull intake and of course they had one on staff who was with us had fixed our problem within a couple of hours. Very pleased with the extra service at a reasonable fee. Thanks YSBB.
