Excellent service and very nice harbor!

by Robert C. - Verified user on Sep 12, 2023
Great service, quiet location, nice amenities, but those without motorized dinghies, start lifting weights now. When not slack, the tide runs really fast!
Marina Response:
Robert, thank you for the excellent review! Yes, the current can be a challenge depending on what the tide is doing and an outboard for your dinghy is a good option to have here in Back Channel. We hope you enjoy the remainder of the boating season and appreciate you taking the time to post a review. Jason, Dockmaster

Jason is a terrific dockmaster. He came out the morning after our late arrival to check on us and inform us of all the amenities at our disposal. We used the free bikes and went to downtown Portsmouth which was fun. The mooring field is very peaceful compared to the Portsmouth Yacht Club mooring field which gets a lot of wakes. We highly recommend Safe Harbor Kittery Point.
Marina Response:
Ken, thank you for the kind words and great review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we are very much looking forward to your return. Let us know if you need anything from us in the future. Enjoy the rest of the boating season! Jason, Dockmaster

Jason was great. Got us right to our mooring. Assured us it was good for us as we are 60 feet 54 tons. No problem. He came out to the boat and introduced him self and gave us our welcome bag. Good old New England hospitality. Hope to stop in again. MV Dauntless
Marina Response:

The staff were great and very accommodating. While there is much less current than the Portsmouth side, we still spun in all directions unpredictably (to us anyway).
Marina Response:
Mike, thank you for taking the time to post a review of our marina. I am happy you enjoyed your time with us and sorry to hear the current was problematic. Hopefully you will be back soon and we can earn that 5th star! Enjoy the rest of your cruise and let us know if you need anything else from us in the future. Jason, Dockmaster

Friendliest and best customer service I have encountered from a marina. Jason Tittle sent a mooring map with explicit instructions on where my mooring was. This was so helpful as I have never been there and singlehand. After settled, Jason came to the boat with a gift bag and marina info. Lounge and shower was reslly clean. Office staff also friendly and welcoming. Used one of their free loaner bikes to go into town. Really enjoyed my stay here and look forward to going back.
Marina Response:
Thank you Lisa for the wonderful review! It was our pleasure having you with us, the only downside was not having you here for longer. Enjoy the rest of your cruise and let us know when you need a spot again. Looing forward to your return. Jason, Dockmaster

Very nice small marina - bicycles - showers - easy to get to town- also they can help arrange repairs- however # 01 transit mooring ball is at the entrance and gets wave and wind activity- ask them to put you further in . Also pump out also if you are in need of repairs has available large network of specialists

A gem of spot on the Piscataqua R if you prefer quiet to crowds in Pepperell Cove. Bike the mile into town with Walgreens, Ace hardware, banks and great restaurants available. Loved the info Jason provided us with our rez confirmation - a map of the mooring field showing our assigned mooring! Why dont all marinas do this? He also came out to introduce himself and delivwr an info package. Top notch treatment!

About Safe Harbor Kittery Point

Our facility offers 43 deep water moorings and 9 slips in the most protected basin in the area with direct open access (no bridges) to the Gulf of Maine. We are located in a water body known as the Back Channel; it is just off the north side of the Piscataqua River mouth, across from Jamaica Island. Our mooring balls are white, stamped with the letters KPYY, and numbered 1101 up to 1143. Protected on three and a half sides, we are considered the area’s primary hurricane hole. All moorings are granite block and all ground tackle is inspected annually each spring.

Transient moorings are available for vessels up to 65 feet LOA and slips for vessels up to 60 feet LOA. Our moorings vary in weight and swing area so advanced reservations are highly recommended. No launch service is provided, so bring your dinghy. We have a dinghy dock and our restroom facility (with shower), located at our front office entrance, is open 24/7.

Kittery, along with its neighbor Portsmouth, NH (across the river), are recognized for their historic, cultural, and scenic assets as well as their many restaurants and shopping/ supply amenities. There are public docks available in Pepperrell Cove as well as in Portsmouth if you'd like to travel over by water.
