About


Our marina facility is centrally located in the heart of Casco Bay, the gateway to Downeast Maine. Sitting at the tip of Basin Point, on the water's edge of Pott's Harbor we are a premiere destination for seasonal mariners, transient boaters, and cruising yacht clubs exploring the coast of Maine. With direct, deep water access from the ocean, and protected by the surrounding islands of Bailey, Haskell, Flag, Eagle, Horse, Birch, and Whaleboat, Pott's Harbor is a picturesque harbor to enjoy for a few hours, while you have lunch, or a few days, while you explore secluded coves, pebbly beaches, and even a lighthouse, Half-Way Rock.

Approach


Southerly approach brings you south of Eagle Island passing between R N “2” and G “1” Gong. Turn north and head between Upper Flag island and Horse Island while passing R N “4”. You will see our marina on your port side just past Horse island at the tip of Basin Point. Easterly approach takes you north of Haskell Island through a well-marked channel. As you round the last channel marker G C “13”, head west and we are located straight ahead at the tip of Basin Point.
Minimum Approach Depth:50.0 Feet

Outstanding as usual. Have never encountered a staff member not willing to go out of their way nor had a menu item I didn't thoroughly enjoy!

Our first stay this season. Wonderful hospitality and attention to detail. Beautiful new brochure which we will keep on board. Excellent dinner with priority seating (as we were on a mooring). Fresh blueberry muffin and hot coffee to our boat by dock staff in launch at 8 am. By far the marina with the best hospitality and service from here to Bar Harbor. We'll be back. Another fun night at Dolphin on 7/8. Great shower facilities but suggest paper towels and trash can in the shower room. Super friendly dock staff. You know how to do it the right way. The follow up post card is well conceived. Hope to see you again soon. My word of mouth critique will be +++

Excellent service as always. Tender leads you to your morning and hands you your mooring pennant. Clean landing area for the dingy. Very dog friendly grounds. Clean restrooms. And in the morning coffee and fresh blueberry muffins delivered to your boat. Few come close to their service.

Very friendly and helpful crew. They come right out and show you to your mooring, and even hand you the pennant line. The launch service comes right out. In the morning they provide blueberry muffins and coffee. The Dolphin restaurant is excellent. During the day their are for use and they'll provide scenic point recommendations. As an indication of how pleased we were, we extended our stay.

One of the finest marina experiences we have ever had. They employ 92 people to keep everyone happy and everyone working there is helpful, kind, and polite. Both Mrs Saxton and her son, Chris, visited our table at dinner (which was outstanding) to welcome us to their facility. There was no difficulty in handling our 51 Endeavour on a mooring right off the dock. Great stopover.

We spent the 4th of July in this fantastic marina and were pampered and treated like royalty. From the 5 star restaurant (the chowder and muffins are not to be missed), to the large modern floating docks and the many convenient moorings, we could not be more impressed or pleased. It is rare to find 100% of the staff we meet to be solely focused on our needs. Chris Saxton is a gem and runs the operation effortlessly. The launches run constantly and fuel prices were very competitive.The experience was one of our best in 15 months of cruising and we look forward to our return in September. This will be tough act to follow as we cruise the Maine coast.

The Dolphin sets the standard for service and facilities for boaters. The new shower and bathrooms are wonderful and the store is a nice mix of gift items and refreshments (we ran out of tonic and thankfully they had in the cooler). The restaurant is fantastic and has amazing views over the anchorage. Definitely should be on your summer boating schedule.

Lots of improvements since our last stay a couple years back. Chris and the staff are very professional and welcoming. The new bath house and shop is really nice and the restaurant has some of the best views and food along the coast. Blueberry muffins are worth the trip alone!

Flawless, friendly and professional. The Marina and Restaurant grounds are very well kept. The new additional longer face dock will help encourage more cruisers and locals to make this a dinner destination. We came as cruisers on a northerly run up from Norfolk, thought we'd give it a try and are very glad we did. This is our new 'go to' place to bring our guests from away who want to experience the best of Maine.

We were very pleased with our two night stay at Dolphin Marina. They responded immediately to our call on the radio and had a dock attendant waiting to catch our lines as we came alongside. The facility is recently ungraded and in great shape and the new restaurant is quickly becoming a destination eatery for locals and visitors. Best of all, in the morning they brought by coffee and their famous blueberry muffins. Highly recommended.
