As always, our trip to Boothbay Harbor Marina was terrific. We love Kim, we always feel like family when we stay. Sitting around the picnic table and chatting with other guests at the Marina is so much fun. Our 3rd trip this season and we are already planning our trips next season. Thank you Kim and Chris..... it's never a disappointing trip.

This is our new favorite marina. It is in the heart of Boothbay Harbor. It has all the basics: laundry, showers, electrical hookups and water and lots of additional touches, such as dock steps, complimentary ice and "docktails" on Saturday. The seasonal and transient boaters are friendly and sociable. The highlights of this marina are owners/managers Kim and Chris. They are proactive, welcoming and kind, making everyone feel part of the marina "community".

Kim had all of these great reviews on line.....after the first 5 minutes of arriving at Boothbay Harbor Marina it was pretty easy to understand why. Super friendly and accommodating. Thanks for making our first overnight on our new boat a great experience. Mark and Jane

Absolutely one of the friendliest Harbormasters ever! Kim is very customer focused. The marina is small but perfectly located to the wonderful downtown. The shops are very nice, not your typical tourist chachi stuff. And a Free trolly to outlying areas. Love it, we will be back!

Fantastic little Marina right in the heart of the quaint New England town of Boothbay. Kim took excellent care of us and texted me the approach directions having never been there. Be back next season for sure!

We had a wonderful stay. Kim was a gracious host. Our slip was protected and the slip neighbors friendly. The bathrooms and showers were clean and perfect. We'll be back!

This is a gem of a marina which we can't recommend highly enough. What makes it so special is the dock master Kim and her trusty, competent and generous assistant Carson. Kim is quite simply an outstanding dock master and a professional, enthusiastic, kind and welcoming person with a wealth of local knowledge and information. This was our second visit and we shall be coming back ASAP.

Excellent place to stay! Thanks to Kim for the hospitality!!
by Vernon S. on Jul 28, 2023
This may not be the fanciest Marina but it certainly is one of the most hospitable and warmest marinas on the North East. Kim, the owner operator and her team (Carson and husband Chris) go out of their way to create a friendly and home-like atmosphere. One feels like part of the family. Boothbay is on our annual schedule, not because of its beautiful setting (which it has) but especially for the unique hospitality and friendship this Marina and Kim provides.
by Allen G. on Jul 26, 2023
Thank you Kim!
There is a reason almost every reveiw mentions Kim. She really goes out of her way to be sure you have a great stay. From the moment your reseservation is confirmed she makes sure you are informed and aware.
This marina has been woman owned and managed for over 30 years we understand. Judy, Kims mother-in-law passed the reigns down to Kim and she does very well.
The location is central to Booth Bay and is Ideal. BE SURE NOT TO MISS THE MAINE COAST BOTANICAL GARDENS!
The only negative is the one taxi company. They left us flat footed. They do not answer their phone and the voice mail box is full. You can text the same number. We texted them the day before that we would call at 8 am for an 8:30 pickup and they replied fine. But then when we called, again no answer and voice mail full and the text was answered 15 minutes later saying their only driver was out of town. Knowing we would call why did they not inform us sooner? They had our number from the night before! We also understand the town has only one Uber driver. Plan to wait for a lift.
by Leslie D. on Jul 25, 2023
This is a great place to stay! Kim is amazing - friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable.
The docks are well cared for and power/water and internet were all in working order.
The location cannot be beat. Just outside the gate is the town which is full of restaurants and shopping.
We can’t wait to return!
by Joseph O. on Jul 10, 2023
Our original plan was to spend 2 days in Boothbay before heading to Port Clyde and Rockland. However, fog, cold, and seas were not to best so we decided to remain in Boothbay. Kim made it so easy to stay and we remained for 7 days having a wonderful time despite uncooperative weather. The facility was great, KIm was great, we could not have been happier. Kim was always smiling and helpful, she even gave us a ride to Boothbay Botanical Gardens (excellent do not miss). We will definitely be back again and again.

Kim is the best dockmaster we have encountered in our 20 years of boating. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. The marina is fantastic and allows an easy walk to everything in Boothbay Harbor.

Small but very clean facilities, extraordinarily easy access to the downtown area restaurants and shops, and an extremely well protected dock space. A bit tight getting in and out, but with a few extra hands - very easy.

Kim (owner/manager) "gets" it. Super friendly, competent, flexible service to boaters. Lots of very happy people on the docks. A great, welcoming town was full of great restaurants, boutique shopping, and coffee shops. So much fun. We'll be back.

Great location, right in the center of town. Carson in the dock house was very helpful with our lines and information.
by Libby P. on Jul 03, 2022
The folks here were so kind and helpful to this novice, naive solo sailor who showed up with an unhappy Australian Shepherd and no spring lines! Their willingness to help and answer questions gave me the confidence I needed to go on to face the next not so friendly marina. I stayed an extra day in Boothbay because I liked this Marina and its owners so much! Excellent location.

Wow, we just can’t say enough about Boothbay Harbor Marina! After a 3 night stay, it is now at the top of list of favorite places to stay. Kim is just incredible at making you feel at home and as if you are part of her family. The facility is small and intimate, but has everything you could need. Kim checked on us frequently, and bent over backwards to help us in any way, including shuttling us to and from the Botanical Gardens.
It is no surprise at all that they were just voted the #1 marina in Maine!

Loved this place! My wife and I spent 2 nights there in early August. Perfect. Kim was really nice and helpful. Locals and returning guests were laid back and welcoming. Just might be the best ice cream in the world just steps from the marina. Mother of all ice machines (as one local put it). Maine! Maine! Maine! Endless, peaceful places to explore by boat. Cant wait to go back this fall! On approach follow her directions exactly. When she says turn to the north, pin that compass on north!

If you want the large marina experience along with the belligerence and indifference that sometimes comes with a large marina, please choose Dimillos in Portland.If prefer the polar opposite than choose Boothbay, Its like a bed and breakfast on the water!
by Gene C. - Verified user on Aug 29, 2020
Everything you would hope for and expect for an overnight experience. While the location is great and the facilities more than adequate, the star of the marina is Kim, as she shines in her delivery of customer satisfaction.

We spent a few days at the beginning of July here, we literally called as we entered the Harbor and were welcomed warmly with two slips for us and our friends. We loved having restaurants right next to the Marina and they even let us borrow their wagon so we could walk to the grocery store to provision. My husband took an amazing rainbow picture that they used on their social media pages! We will be back for sure!!!
by Al J. - Verified user on Aug 23, 2020
Great just like our last visit. Staff was excellent !!
Unrelatedly to the marina we didn’t appreciate the ‘loud’ music that went well into the night (midnight) from the bar/restaurant nearby.
We will come back because of the staff and location.

Outstanding location, nice facilities with friendly staff - the best location in Boothbay. This was a return visit for us and once again we are very pleased and stayed a few extra days to enjoy this dog friendly community.
Great to stay at a small family owned and managed marina.
Comments after our third visit>>>>>>
This small family owned & managed marina is located in the heart of Boothbay Harbor. A great location with easy access to everything in this charming community.
Kim is most helpful - we planned to stay for a couple of days and decided to spend a week. Difficult to depart such a convenient and friendly location.
This was our third visit and we look forward to returning to our favorite small marina!

What a great place to stay when cruising.
The location is right downtown and still very quiet at night.
Kim, the owner/manager was on the dock greeting us and making us feel very welcome.
We had time for laundry and she gave us Tide Pods, no pun intended.
We also had to stay past check out to wait for a raw water pump via fed ex and she helped lower the stress level.
Then, we had a crew member fall off our sailboat and Kim had a ride available to the hospital pronto.
She was amazing, what could have been a stressful day was made less so by the culture at this marina.
Also, one of the guests was there to ease our friends bruised ego with a kind comment.
It is my great pleasure to reccommend this marina to anyone cruising Maine.

Very friendly and helpful dock staff. Good solid dock float in about the most sheltered spot you could imagine. Walk out the gate and you're right in the middle of town. We were there on a Saturday night and got treated to the live music at a bar next door, could be a plus or minus depending on your taste.
