In the heart of Salem, Pickering Wharf Marina is located adjacent to the hotel and can accommodate sail boats and power boats up to 120 feet for both summer and winter (protected) dockage. Pickering Wharf Marina is situated behind the Derby Wharf breakwater, so no matter what the weather the seas are calm. The only service we provide is fun. So book a weekend for a great time. For day trips contact the marina on ch.9 or call (978)210-4584. Weekends are $4.00 per foot a night (Fri. or Sat.). Both weekend nights are $3.50 per foot a night.
pickering wharf has been a pleasure! the dockmaster has helped me tremendously with my boat. best marina ever!
Great as always - Mike the dockmaster makes the difference!
Mike was a great help. First class service
Great spot! Very Accomodating
Mike is a fabulous dock master! He helped us tie up when we arrived and told us about the area for restaurants and other information. He was very pleasant and fun during our stay! Mike also helped us out of our dock space upon departure! Thank you, Ann and Brendan
Great stay. Very convenient to shopping and historic sites
I very much enjoyed the communication received from this marina. The marina sent an SMS with instructions to where I would be spending the night. Close to the heart of Salem, walkable to restaurants and provisions. The laundry/bathroom area was serviceable, not remarkable. The 30amp power couldn't provide 30amps (I was drawing 3200W and the breaker would blow within a few minutes). The pontoons could have used more regular scat-removal. But it was a good location, good/friendly service. I'd visit again.
Very nice place. Good docks, great location. Mike the dock master was very helpful. Great stay !
Great location. Staff was nice enough. The bathrooms were horrendous. Just a little cleaning would go a long way.
The bathroom facilities are not very clean, had no soap to wash your hands and are tiny. I have closets in my house bigger then the bathroom/ shower/ laundry there . Besides that Salem is a great town with a feel of really being away considering it was only 25 miles away by boat ( about an hour ) .
Great location, great staff. Will definitely return next time we are in the area.
Very well protected & quiet marina, at least while the restaurant is closed for renovations. Salem is supremely walkable. No problems with electric & water. Will definitely return.
Dock hand didn’t respond to radio hailing on CH 9; reached finally by cellphone. Dockhand not available to assist in docking. Dockhand was unaware of our Dockwa reservation until he made a call. One restroom out of order; no toilet paper in second bathroom. Bathrooms not clean. The provided WiFi access code did not work. Convenient location with good restaurant nearby. Not enough of a reason to go back. We had stayed in prior years and had significantly better experience. Our recommendation is to choose Brewers Hawthorne marina nearby.
Although the location is great It is one of the dirtiest facilities I know.. Baths and showers are filthy
On the plus side, it is centrally located, the docks were good and they had reasonable wifi. Pretty much everything else was a minus: dock hands who could generously be described as useless, horrible bath rooms/showers, no marina information, no one seemed to care much.
