Very friendly and helpful staff. Made for a great weekend.
Beautiful day at the beach!
Great stay , super staff !!! Small and calm marina with Steve as Dock master made it very welcoming, he’s like a great Innkeeper and concierges.
Great location, marina manager is excellent had problem with the electric and he fixed it asap. He runs the place like a small inn, he walks the dock checking if everything is alright
NOT worth the exorbitant rates! Check out other options! There is reasonable anchorage on the west side of the channel in.
Things they say they have but don’t really: NO showers. What they have is merely a beach rinse off. It’s outdoor and exposed, no curtain, and no hot water. NO functional pumpout. Marina staff has no idea when it was last functional or when it will be repaired. NO free wifi. A wifi service is available for those who pay a subscription fee.
Power is available through an old style, seen-no-where-else-anymore plug types. Regular customers here have a specific adapter and brought it with them as they knew, in advance, what type of connector is on the pedastal. And the fees for electric are absurdly high. $14.00-$18.00 for 30 and 50 amp but only through the old plug type.
This marina, in past summers a hive of summer activity, is now nearly empty most of the time. I assume, since the rates went way up this year, all the boaters that came here in previous summers, have now found more reasonable summer fun spots.
This marina is essentially over priced beach parking. We are cruisers and have pulled into marinas all along the east coast and out to The Keys. Every marina we’ve used, even the most basic, offer hot showers and free wifi. I understand fresh water is a difficult proposition on this island, however, if a marina cannot cover some of the basic expectations to be found in marinas, they cannot charge fees higher than many marinas who do offer these items.
Great time as usual. Steve is doing a great job since taking over marina responsibilities this year. Hailey is always helpful with a smile as dockmaster.
Our weekend stay at Sailors Haven was great and Steve and Haley were extremely pleasant and helpful. our boat Freedom
Steve the dock master is Great
Staff is friendly
How ever its very frustrating that after all these years the marina still does not have 50 AMP 230 V the two biggest slips in the marina 21 and 22 have 30 amp
Even plugging in at the barge slip still can't obtain power.
Please forward this to the proper personal so i can enjoy my stay along with many other guests I'm sure, and see to it that we don't have to run our generators during our stay.
Although most stayed home due to the weather forecast glad we went. Steve is awesome. So curteous and helpful he makes us feel so welcome. We basically had the marina to ourselves. We will be back soon.
Another Great Stay, a new chef with great food.
Have been coming here for years. Never dissapoints always a great place to visit and relax with my family and the boats. This vacation was much needed and everyone at sailors haven was fantastic! Steve the head of operations was an awesome guy! Super nice down to earth person with a great personality always looking to better your time here and sailors haven as a whole. I’ve come here for over 10 years and it was obvious this year they stepped up and put a little time and work into the marina putting in all new poles and electrical for the boats. Pairing the Dockwa app with the reservation process for easier booking. Can’t say enough good about sailors haven steve and all the staff here. All great people and will be back in August for a weekend trip. See you soon steve!
Steve the manager was awesome and accommodating, and Sailors Haven is fantastic!
Our stay was nice. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Some Dock power issues that have to be assessed though. Thanks.
We love Sailor's Haven. It is a clean, beautiful beach and marina. We love the fact that it is family oriented and quiet. The dock hand (Hailey) is helpful and nice. We look forward to another visit.
We had a great time there and the help was very nice. Steve was a pleasure to deal with and runs the place well. We are coming back at the end of August.
The reservation system worked well, surprising given that it was new along with the concessionaire that is running the marina. Hope they do well! Downside, is the lack of "paper picking" around the marina in general, even in easy spots such as by the trash enclosures. Park shoreline on the bay side needed a cleanup too. I did what I could, but one summer "seasonal" with a stick and a bag could have likely had quite an impact.
staff was great very helpful
Love Chris and Hailey who run the show at Sailors Haven. They are very accommodating. Lions Den
Sailors Haven is always a wonderful stay with all its nature. This time is was extra special meeting the new manager Steve who is the absolute nicest person. He made it even more memorable. Perfect!
