About


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.

Approach


From the Red 16 marker in Salem Sound, take a course heading of 217 degrees True, putting you inline with Red 2 Day Marker in the center of Salem Harbor. After passing Red 2 Day Marker to starboard, come West and head 273 degrees True, toward the Red 4 flashing bouy. Passing the Red 4 flasher to starboard, you will be able to identify a small white lighthouse with the black top visible at the end of Derby Wharf. Keeping the lighthouse off to the starboard and the Green 5 Marker to port, head straight down the channel towards the S/V Friendship and just off your port bow you will see the entrance to Pickering Wharf Marina.

The marina was well taken care of and the dockmaster Mike was very helpful getting the boat in and out. Definitely come back again.

Always a great stop on the scenic north shore coast! Excellent service by the dock master Mike, he really makes the difference at this marina. Highly recommend for location to restaurants and shopping and just an overall great experience.

We have stayed here before and always enjoy Mike and the Pickering Wharf area. A bonus for cruisers is the convenience of the commuter rail which can take you to Boston, or to Rockport or Newburyport -all worth a visit. Mike had to set a record for the quickest Dockwa confirmation-less than five minutes! Outstandingđź‘Ť

Clean and orderly marina, dead quiet at night despite being right in downtown Salem. The Finz restaurant just a few steps away from your slip is excellent and provides ample outdoor seating. Walk 10-15 to all the historical attractions and fun shops in town.

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

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.

Thanks guys. Bathrooms do need some work.

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 ) .

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.
