Great location, staff, on-site restaurant, laundry and courtesy car to provision.

I never take the time to setup a user name and password to write reviews but Peter & his staff were so accommodating and helpful that I did. I wish I could give them 1000 stars. We are moving aboard our boat from land life and Peter set us up on a dock location that made moving household items so easy. He greeted us with a lovely welcome bag & could not be nicer. Thank you so much! We will be back in New England next season and will definitely make this a stop.

Marina Response:
Hi and thanks for the honesty! I myself am not much of a reviewer which makes us appreciate people like yourself taking the time to do this! We hope you enjoy another round of living and traveling aboard your boat!

Peter and his team at Spring Point Marina are exceptional! We first saw the marina in the Waterway Guide but we were concerned about depth. A quick call to Peter confirmed that indeed, they did have the depth to accommodate our 6.5 foot draft. When we mentioned to Peter that we might need to find a ride down to Logan Airport in Boston (over 2 hours away) Peter quickly added that they could help us. SO GREAT! We spent 9 days with the team at Spring Point Marina, which included a quick trip home to the west coast to check on things. And Peter's team did indeed drive us to Boston. AMAZING! Our boat is a heavy Nordhavn trawler and Peter arranged for us to be in a sturdy inside slip, which was terrific. We also used the marina's courtesy car to go to the grocery store and reprovision for our next month's travels - so very appreciated! We didn't eat at the restaurant onsite but it looked terrific. The location in South Portland is walkable to a few restaurants and is a $9 Uber ride to downtown. Or use the courtesy car! Even better! While we were gone the team kept a sharp eye on our boat, and we felt comfortable knowing that this group of knowledgeable, friendly people were watching out for us. Overall, an incredible experience, with awesome people and a great marina. We will be back!

Marina Response:
Thank you for the very kind, generous, and thorough review! You two were wonderful to have around the marina and we truly enjoyed your kindness and joy! We look forward to hosting again!

This is fantstic marina. The staff were friendly, professional, and they went out of their way to assist me. The location is excellent and well protected, one of the most peaceful, calm docks I have stayed at during my voyage from Long Island to Maine. There is also a beautiful bistro on-site with stunning views of Portland and the harbor. It was a most enjoyable experience.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the great review and kind words! North 43 Bistro is a cool place with a menu that is always changing with something for everyone. The operators take immense pride in their culinary art and it shows! Reviews like this truly make the day to day all worth it! Enjoy!

Due to emergency medical appointments, we needed to be in the Portland, ME area. In our search, we came upon Spring Point Marina. Boy were we lucky to have found this place. The Dockmaster, Peter, and the marina staff were awesome—very efficient and professional. Not only were the amenities great (the wifi could be a bit more stable), Peter was so easy to work with and understanding of our medical and veterinary needs. The marina’s courtesy car made our lives as transients so much more stress free for our appointments. The boating community at the marina also made us feel like we’re part of their “family”. We will definitely be back to this marina the next time we are in Maine.

Marina Response:
We wish life didn't "happen" while out enjoying ourselves boating but it does and we are happy we could be here for you to lend a hand. It's a family around here! We hope to see you again!

Our absolute favorite stop in Maine! Thank you to Pete and his staff for all the accommodations. The courtesy car was a game changer. The facilities were very clean and private. The full-service fuel dock with complimentary pump outs, as well as the boathouse with beer for sale, was always staffed with helpful marina crew. We will be sure to tell anyone heading into Maine that Spring Point Marina in South Portland is a must-stop destination! P.S. There are two delicious places to check out right around the corner. El Corazón Casita is an authentic Mexican restaurant with the best California burrito you can find in Maine. Spring Point Tavern is the perfect hangout spot for reasonably priced drinks and great bar food. Both places are dog-friendly with shaded backyard patios.

Marina Response:

Wow, what a marina! Very easy to get in and out and the closest marina to the mouth pof Portland harbor. Very modern docks and facilities. Harbormaster was very attentive and helpful on arrival. They can even provide a loaner car! Bath/shower/laundry facilities are great, but a looooong way from the end docks. Marina is not walking distance to stores, but there is that loaner car. On premises marine supply was closed the entire time we were at the marina. On premises restaurant looked nice (didn't try it). We had an issue with shore power. The circuit breaker on the outlet tripped causing an alarm. The marina staff were unresponsive in getting to it.

Marina Response:
Greetings and thank you for the generous response! I apologize for the lack of attention when it came to that noise from the power pedestal. If there was a communication break down we wish for it to not happen again. If you care to elaborate on the circuit breaker situation please email me at [email protected] We are always willing to listen and learn to help improve our customers enjoyment of our facility! We take pride in being attentive and if we were not for any reason our apologies! We hope to host you again and are happy to try and accommodate any requests even providing the loaner car!

I could not possibly do justice to the level of service we received here. We were staying as transients near the end of the season when word came that a big storm was incoming. Peter reached out to us to warn me about it and helped me get the boat to safety. He even went so far as to send Josh, one of his employees, with me over to Portland Yacht Services to make the transfer easier. I don't think I've ever seen someone go so far above and beyond to help.

Marina Response:
Hello! In a similar way to you I cannot give your review the correct response ever besides thank you! We have been there and when a known issue is in sight we want to communicate that as quickly as possible for the comfort and safety of all of our guests. Though are facility is protected from the open ocean, especially with our newest dock system sitting in front of the marina, those darn nor’easters can sometimes make us spin on our heads! Again we appreciate the kind words and hope you have a wonderful winter!

Dockmaster is extremely helpful. Would have been 5 stars if not for the rolling. Marina is subject to a lot of wakes.

Marina Response:
Thank you very much for the review! We do get wakes into the marina from the traffic in the main channel... its unfortunate but all slips are bow or stern to the boat traffic unless you are on our face dock. We only put larger vessels or catamarans on that dock if we are full in other places and I try to discuss the wake with all vessels that will be staying there! In other news we have just received our shipment of new docks which will extend the marina by another run and no boats will need to be on the face dock once this major expansion is complete! Sorry for the long response but we are excited for this new phase of the marina and we look forward to providing a better ride for everyone! Again thank you very much for the review and we hope to host you again!!!

Pete and his crew are great people. They are helpful and accommodating. The marina has excellent docks and facilities and is well located near highways, train and airport. I can’t recommend Spring Point Marina highly enough. Glenn Morrison

Marina Response:
Hi Glenn, thank you for the nice review! It was a real pleasure having you stay with us and I think you are spot on with the relation to transit. We are more that happy to coordinate rides to any of the transit hubs for crew exchanges or to loan out one of our vehicles to help with any of those provisioning needs! We truly appreciate the time spent to leave a review!

Awesome marina. If you stay out on the main dock (T Head) have plenty of bumpers out. It rocks and rolls from the wake off the main channel. Other than that. Great staff and facilities

the dock staff was great. i wish that i was informed of codes, use of hoses ect when or before i rented.

Marina Response:
Hello and thanks for the review! I apologize that the codes were not made more evident or clear to you. We have an information booklet that should be given to every transient upon their arrival and our process is to go through that booklet to give the customer all of the information. If that did not occur that is on me and my sincere apologies for the inconvenience! If we get the opportunity to host you again please request Pete the dockmaster and I will be more than happy to assist you!

Marina and staff were awesome. Nicest boaters we have met for awhile. Stayed there 3 weeks as we had a land trip planned. Dockmaster gave us a very good deal and we felt like they would keep an eye on our boat. Wonderful big park right next to marina for dog walking.Recommend.

Marina Response:
Thank you for such a good review! Though we don't have an overwhelming amount of dogs on the dock we pride ourselves with being a dog friendly environment especially with Bug Light State Park right next door. A new pup around the docks brings a lot of joy to the staff and marina customers alike! We are pleased that you felt comfortable leaving your wonderful boat with us while you were away! Enjoy your cruise!

Beautiful location, fantastic dock master and dock hands. So helpful and friendly. A great community vibe. Close enough to Portland, but remains private and away from the fray. The transient slip we were in did get some motion at times, but we felt secure at the well maintained floating docks. A great entry point into Maine. We plan to make Spring Point our exit stop as well.
