Steve the marina manager was very accommodating. He moved us to a spot that was less than desirable due to proximity of the restaurant but did so because the outer docks were rocking from waves and weather. Steve did what he could, to include providing ear plugs if the noise was too loud. The spot he assigned us ended up being better over all and the noise was not an issue. Steve was very helpful getting us settled in and the next day the staff that was working was friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff, excellent facilities, great location. We pulled in after a sail over from Provincetown (first time here). After an uneventful tie-up and a shower, we enjoyed dinner at the marina restaurant (great views, great drinks, good food) and then a very picturesque walk down the beach road to an ice-cream stand. We had to leave early because of weather, and we were sad to go.

This Marina is the best - always there to help. Clean showers and bathrooms with a great restaurant on site as well. Been there 4 times and all stays have been superb ! Steve and the staff are excellent. Steve went out of his way to put me in a spot that I was comfortable. Offered advice to the new captain that helped out. IF you're a new captain and a bit timid, this is the place to come!

First impressions was not good. We had to call on the radio three times before we got an answer. On the second time they asked us to switch to channel 72. We did and they did not answer at all. Then when asked about docking the instructions were not clear. The said after green can 23 turn to port and you’ll dock in front of the sport fishing boats. Being our first time their we had not idea where the sport fishing boat dock. When we call back again they stated the dock hands with red shirts would greet and assist. As we approached we did see the red shirts. The dockhands were very helpful in docking and hooking up shore power. They were helpfully in telling us were the bathrooms, showers and laundry was. Plus the way to us the key cards. The facilities were nice clean and up to date. The docks were nice. We used the laundry as we felt the machines were clean and secure. The welcome bag was a nice, but the context not much to speak of. Not like the gifts from the SH in Hull, the gave us a cup, kooze and a key chain. Being a real tourist town they could have supplied Mayflower information, similar to the Boston brochure Hull provided. Overall we were pleased with our visit. It was disappointing that we could say there on our return trip back. No space available But we will try to stay there again on future trips.

Right on the waterfront, steps from the big sites (Mayflower/Brewster Gardens/Plymouth Rock (don't get me started on whether the rock is real, but given that Plymouth Harbor has a sandy shore, why on earth would you aim your wooden boat toward a rock??). The staff is friendly, the facilities are spotless, staying an extra hour to avoid poor conditions is not discouraged, and the dock has plenty of water and easily maneuverable slips. You do have to watch your depth if you draw more than 6 feet as you make your approach as there are shallows on both sides of the fairway. It makes sense to radio the marina for guidance if you've never been there before. Also, be on the lookout for kiddies learning to sail in little pram dinghies; they sometimes drift out into the fairway. Also, since the marina only offers docks for transient mariners, you're going to pay a lot more than for a mooring with the harbormaster. But those fill up fast, and anchoring in Plymouth Harbor can be a challenge (there's a nice spot over by the Cowyard, but that's a long dinghy ride to shore, and it's pretty exposed in there.)

Plymouth Harbor is always a fun place to visit and Safe Harbor Marine is a 1st class marina with a pleasant staff and excellent service department. On this trip we had the impeller on our Yanmar engine replaced on our 45 ft center cockpit sloop. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance and many tourist activities such as Mayflower II, Plymouth Plantations, Museums, historical cemetery hill.

Friendly and courteous staff when they tied my bow and stern line and I did not even have to retire they know their business just put on a spring line We were coming off the boat to go up with our trash and recyclables and two of the crew were walking by and asked if they could take our garbage and I recyclables for us up. Showers are clean water is hot. Made friends with the resident boaters in the short time we were here. One captain let me use his monster water hose and was able to clean up Babette nicely.

Every year we do transient docking once or twice during the summer here at Safe Harbors Plymouth and are never disappointed. Such a courteous staff that exudes nothing but professionalism. Brigette the Dock Master, Cory from Management, and all the Deck Hands are so personal and accountable. The storm Fay was predicted to hit the weekend of our stay and the staff went above and beyond to protect each vessel, adding extra spring lines and securing loose items like lawn chairs on the dock, even towing small skiffs/zodiacs and relocated all outside transient docked vessels to a safer location. Thankfully the storm missed us but it was admirable to see this team in action to ensure all vessels were protected from any possible rough waters. Our last day of our stay the front office offered complimentary donuts and coffee, they were just as sweet as the stay. Safe Harbors really knows how to run a marina and what a great location. I recommend Water Street Cafe for breakfast and Surfside Smokehouse for lunch and a Mudslide or Pain Killer on the outside deck. Great sunsets, view of Plymouth Rock, and great fellow mariners to engage with. We will sure to revisit soon!

Very nice stay. We were located on the face dock and the only complaint I have is the tender boats coming form the PYC go a little to fast. Bridgette was wonderful. Very helpful! The showers were great and so was the laundry service. My wife, dog and I will be back! Thanks again SHP!

Docks were modern and in good shape. Staff were friendly and many local attractions including Plymouth Rock are a short walk from the dock. The reason for only 3 stars with 10 knots or more out of the N or NE or E the conditions on their face dock were extremely uncomfortable.

Great location to visit. We stayed one night to avoid the weather. Unfortunately we were on the outside dock which did not provide relief for 20-25 knot winds all night. Other than that we were met at the dock to help tie up and everyone was helpful and happy. There is a nice restaurant on site and a short walk to the town. We will definitely be returning to explore some more.

This marina is top notch. Chris, Bridget, and crew do a great job. I recently stayed here for a weekend and had engine troubles the morning we were to leave. A mechanic was at my boat 20 minutes later and spent the entire day getting me back up and running. The restaurant at the marina is delicious and fun, and there are numerous great restaurants and bars downtown, which is just a short walk or boat launch away. Highly recommended. -Jonathan

We arrived a little early to get ahead of the weather and the dock hands were hreat getting us settled. They helped us tie up and get power and water hooked up.

I have a 42´ sailboat. This is a very nice marina. Well protected. Beautiful harbor. I stayed for 2 nights, June 6-7, 2019, for issues with my alternator. I have been serviced rapidly by a competent technician. He worked after business hours on my boat. Much appreciated. They got the parts within hours. I highly recommend a stop at this marina. And do not miss walking the spectacular waterway of Plymouth.
