Dock and office staff were wonderful – responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We had to leave the boat for a few days and felt secure with the quality of the docks and the marina staff. Great location – easy walk to Tubby's Tank House and easy Ubers to historic area.

Very nice physical facility, great staff, location convenient to restaurants, a marine store and two grocery stores. Would definitely stay here again. - very good floating, concrete surfaced docks with plenty of large, sturdy cleats, new power pedestals. - showers and heads (2 each in men’s and women’s rest room facilities were very nice, well above average. Also wet clean. - location was convenient to several restaurants, a marine store just down the block, and a Kroger and Whole Foods grocery about 1.6 & 1.7 miles away (we walked). Erica Davis seafood and bbq was very good and a 10 minute walk away. - staff was extremely helpful and friendly

First and foremost, this is not an ADA compliant marina. Restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities are on the second floor over the marina office. You are required to climb 24 steps to use the facilities. No restrooms available in the office area. Second, it would have been appreciated knowing that their pump out was not working. And, after two and half weeks, the pump out still was not functional. If we had known prior to our arrival to Safe Harbor Bahia Bleu, we would have made other arrangements. And, now for the most important issue. While away from our boat for approximately 2 hours, another boat hit the power pedestal were our 50 amp cord was attached, causing a partial dislodgment of our power cord, which caused our boat to go into reverse polarity. Since this was another boat causing the reverse polarity, it became an insurance issue. An electrician looked at our boat and determined that we lost our battery charger and it would require a replacement unit. While waiting for insurance approval on our claim, We have lost 4 batteries due to not being able to charge our batteries. Furthermore, we have paid an outrageous dock fee to stay at this marina. No weekly or monthly rates. Safe Harbor refused to give us an incident report, stating in was an internal document. Therefore, we filed a police report. Bahia Bleu did pay for one night accommodations for us and our guests the first night when the reverse polarity occurred. Now, so we don’t sound like sour grapes. Dock hands were friendly, one dock hand tried to help us with charging the batteries. Safe Hathor Bahia Bleu, let my husband store his motor scooter in the rack and launch building, which was greatly appreciated. We did find the restrooms were cleaned. Would choose another location in the future.

This marina is so well managed and is in a great location, very close to stores and restaurants etc. The restrooms showers are kept clean and warm. There are office facilities, laundry facilities and a reading nook. Everything you need and all very close. Everybody is so friendly and helpful. We are so pleased that we are spending another night here while we make a few repairs.

We stopped here for two days slowly making our way south down the ICW. The staff was terrific, WiFi was great, a few restaurants near by but no fault of theirs the pump out was not working. They have been waiting on parts for repairs. The face dock is easy to dock. I highly recommend it.

Best communication prior to and upon arrival than any other marina on the ICW so far. Good socks, helpful staff ( though the ramp was SUPER slippery at low tide in pouring rain - no surprise). They accommodated our request for an additional day because of weather without an issue. Short walk to 4 restaurants and a short Uber to downtown Savannah.

Really enjoyed our stay here - Buck, the General Manager, and his team are amazing. Beautiful clean showers, nice porch area with grill and multiple restaurants within easy walking distance. A plus was the easy Uber transportation to visit Savannah and the Isle of Hope.

Aiden & Becka were so helpful with fueling & the lines when we left this morning. It was a great marina to leave our boat for a few days while we visited family in Savannah.

The team at Safe Harbor Bahia Bleu is a great group of individuals, hard-working and friendly. We stayed at the marina for 2.5 weeks and had a chance to know some of the staff. Dani, the business manager, was extra helpful in assisting us in extending our reservation due to an emergence trip to California. The marina's location and amenities were great. It was able to accommodate our 7' draft easily, even at negative tide. The WIFI reception was excellent, laundry machines were free, and the bathrooms were nice. Several restaurants were within short walking distances from the marina. Grocery stores, including Target & Home Depot, were within 1.5 miles from the marina. We will definitely return to this marina the next time we are in the area.

We stayed here for a total of six nights over a ten day period. First the good news - very friendly staff, free laundry (one washer, one dryer) and great location, don’t miss Erica Davis Low Country restaurant just minutes away by foot. Now the not so good, their dock hands (though very friendly) are completely untrained in handling incoming boats larger than what they can lift out in their forklift. First time we came in, two young ladies were dispatched to grab lines and assist. Handed a spring line and moved to the bow to hand a line. Moved to the rear to tie off the stern. Looked up, neither had wrapped line around a cleat. I said “ loop a cleat!” and we finally got it figured out. Left for a quick side trip and returned. This time, two very friendly young men came out. Handed a spring line and said “here’s my spring line. He said “I got it” this time we had a friend aboard and she handed the bow line off. I moved to the back to hand off the stern line. The first dockhand had dropped my spring line in the water and was reaching for my stern line. At this point, we were drifting away from the dock (in a narrow fairway) and each dock hand was holding a line in their hands trying to pull in a 50,000 yacht. Again “ wrap those lines around a cleat!” One wrapped the line around a cleat in a circle instead of a cleat hitch. After we stopped a fellow boater on the dock said “welcome to the asylum” and shook his head. Also, they list pump out services, but “yeah, our pump out is broken, we need new hoses.” Until they get their act together, stay at Thunderbolt or Hinkley.
