This is my third or fourth time overnighting at this marina, and it's always a pleasure. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the facilities are pleasant and clean, and the location (right in the historic district of zany Salem, and steps from the Salem ferry if you want to hit downtown Boston) is really hard to beat.

When leaving the dock the next morning at 6:10 am, we were on the middle face dock, we went aground about 30 feet off the dock. Extremely disappointed no one advised us of this when we arrived the previous day. I had to inch us off slowly to deep water, it was a hard grounding not mud or sand. I will be checking my props and gutless bearings when I do a haul out inspection. My recommendation, do not use this marina!

We loved the marina. Great staff, really clean bathrooms, very nice laundry area, & a cozy seating area inside with a game of checkers. They have a big tent outside with tables and chairs, coffee, doughnuts, muffins in the a.m. It was quiet and walking distance to some sites. If places were far to walk we used Uber to get around. We had great fun and will be back for sure.

Everything about stay was good, except launch was in terrible shape. Handle to assist getting on and off launch was loose and a hazard.

Nice little marina with good facilities and friendly, helpful staff. Just far away enough from the main town to be quiet and peaceful at night, but only a short walk to all the action. Make sure you look carefully at the depth chart when approaching especially at low tide (very shallow on port side approach outside channel).

Cannot say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff were. We were out on a mooring, and the launch was quick and friendly, even with our circus and lots of back and forth with our teenagers.
