About


Carousel Marina, located at the gateway to beautiful Boothbay Harbor, Maine, is a mariner’s dream, offering every amenity one could hope for. Called "one of the best harbors on the Maine coast" by the Maine Coast Guide, Boothbay Harbor is perhaps one of the best known boating and tourism destinations in Maine. It provides a natural stop over point between Portland and the well known touristed areas of Rockland and Camden Maine.

I have traveled the world on my Azimut 66 for the past 5 years. Boothbay Harbor is a special place for me and my wife. This early August we decided to try a new Marina in Boothbay Harbor. The Carousel Marina was our pick. We called over the phone for a last minute reservation hoping they would have room for us. Sure enough they were so helpful finding us a spot very fast. They had a crew on the docks ready to catch our lines and hooking us up to power. The owners and their crew were all working hard to make a very good impression. They were smooth and communicating like a team. After talking to the new owners of the Carousel Marina they have been the most friendly out going owners we have yet to meet at any marina in Maine over the past 2 summers. We talked about their upcoming improvements to the Marina as well as their marine store and restaurant. Very impressed with how young and talented these two young owners are and how hard themselves and their crew works. Can’t wait for next year to be back and see all the improvements and visit our favorite little town!!

The Carousel Marina is the best of the best not just on the midcoast or state of Maine but in the country. My husband and I every year travel from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Rockland and our favorite stop is the Carousel. They have absolutely everything you could ask for facilities-wise. Although that is not even the best part, the on site restaurant, the Whales Tale and Seafarer's Pub, is a classy spot with the best sunset view in the harbor and food. The real cherry on top to the Carousel Marina is the new owners, Jax and Evan . The young couple has done a remarkable job so far and recently purchased the marina. I am so excited to return back to the Carousel Marina and see what is next for them!

This review is a bit delayed, but, boating the coast of Maine is one of our favorite things to do in the summertime. We decided to stop into Carousel Marina and we were pleasantly surprised to learn about the new ownership! When we hailed the marina on the radio, we received a quick and direct response with directions into the harbor and into our slip. The two owners were the one's who tied up our lines we later learned. The new ownership is being lead by a young couple who is kind, motivated, and very welcoming. They have plenty of local knowledge to make your trip in Boothbay Harbor even better! Boothbay Harbor is a beautiful destination and we will most definitely be returning to Carousel! The new owners seem to have big plans for the marina and we could not be more excited to experience all of their improvements next year!

Easy in, easy out. A little rocky at night, but it is a working harbor. Answered the radio right away and friendly. Small marine store with good selection of supplies.

Wonderful marina under new ownership this summer. Very personable and helpful staff, clean, convenient to town. Evan and his family are putting in the hours to make this marina shine and it shows! Restaurant is also under their ownership and we look forward to it for next time. Great view of the harbor!

Surprised to be charged $10 for 10 gallons of water from the dock. Stayed on mooring for three days, came into the fuel dock with my dinghy and purchased 5 gallons of gas. Asked if I could also fill two jerry cans of water. The girl told me no problem. After I filled gas and water cans she said it will be $26 for the gas and $10 for the water. This was a first for me. Guess I learned a lesson.

While I used Dockwa for its convenience to book a mooring, I was dissatisfied with the Marina. The marina staff were not available to answer a phone call or VHF to find my assigned mooring. Fortunately a friend who had already arrived was able to find someone to help. When I visited the office to inquire about a parking pass, I was met by Jack who was smoking inside the closed office. Jack informed me that they don’t offer parking passes. I later attempted to enter the marina to access the restrooms and the doors were locked. There are plenty of better marina options in Boothbay.

Hailed to no avail, so just grabbed a ball and called in. Dock hands were very nice and helpful. Good size marine store for a little marina.

Service Service Service! We've stayed here before, and it's our preferred stop in Boothbay. Outside of town a little bit so we don't have to hear the music and bar noise from the inner harbor. They have all of the necessary amenities. On this trip, I wanted to fill my provisions and asked about a taxi service - the owner offered me his car as a courtesy vehicle - that's great service! Thank you carousel!

Love this marina. Great ship's chanderly, comfy Captain's Room to catch some sport on TV and the chowder at The Whale's Tail is the best in Maine. Jack is a lovely proprietor.
