Sassafras Harbor Marina is open year round.
Sassafras Harbor Marina is located seven nautical miles up the Sassafras River on your port side as you approach the Sassafras River Bridge. We offer open floating docks as well as fixed open slips and covered sheds.

• Marine Store - Sassafras Harbor Business Center is home to our Marine Store & Heron’s Nest Gift Shop. Our marine store provides everything a boater will need to keep their boat looking great and running at peak performance. The Heron’s Nest offers nautical gifts, toys and clothing items for men, women and children. We also have toys, collars and leashes for pets. We offer competitive pricing and can special order most items within two business days.
• Sassafras Harbor Café – Is located next to our marine store and gift shop, and serves breakfast (on the weekends), lunch and dinner. The Café is just a short walk from your boat, or you may call for delivery. (410) 275-4416

Weather permitting, the pool is open from 10:00 AM to dusk every day. Children under 14 years of age must be supervised by an adult over the age of 21. Please observe the rules before entering the pool, and absolutely no glass allowed in the pool area. Our Activity Center is located next to the pool. The first floor is equipped with pool and ping pong tables, and air hockey. On the second floor is a meeting room/lounge area and small kitchenette area. Enjoy eating at the picnic tables under our pergola.

• Please Recycle – Recycling containers are located throughout the marina and next to the dumpsters. We recycle plastic & glass bottles, aluminum cans and cardboard.
• Pets – We love our furry four legged boaters' also, and pride ourselves on being pet friendly – but pets that are not on your boat must be leashed at all times. Our dog walk area is located on the north side of George Street, not in the grass or landscaped areas along the docks or bulkheads. Doggy dodo should be placed in the dumpsters, not in the small trashcans. Only small pets are allowed in the marine store. No pets are permitted in the pool area, activity center or restrooms.
• Grilling - We love to grill too! Just not on the docks or boats (unless it is an electric grill). We have charcoal grills located in several areas throughout the marina by our picnic tables.
• Approach – Enjoy your scenic view of the beautiful Sassafras River as you cruise up to the marina. Once you enter into the No Wake Zone – hail us on Ch. 16.
We look forward to your visit.
The marina is really well maintained and the staff and slip holders were all very friendly. We’re not sure why we never stayed here before, but definitely think it is the best marina in the Georgetown Yacht Basin. We hope that the new management of the Georgetown restaurants helps to revitalize this great location.
Great friendly marina. Clean well cared for and a pleasure to stay. We look forward to returning soon.
Friendly staff, clean facilities, nice well stocked store. Cafe on site, 2 restaurants a short walk Maybe not glamorous but very nice
Nice, clean marina with good floating docks
After my first 2 months there I was hooked. My wife and I started late 2013 season but once there it was great>very friendly> professionally run> the owner talked to me every time and a fully stocked marine store, pool and the granary is in walking distance I was so impressed that I am there for the entire 2014 season. Stop buy and see!
