We enjoyed our late season stay at South Wharf. The dockmaster was terrific! Great location, enjoyed the nearby restaurant Little Moss.

We spent 2 nights at a slip which were sublime from all accounts. From the moment we received our welcome introduction which was notably authentic, professional and courteous to the shove off and good wishes. Jilani the dockmaster brings a new level of service and hospitality which we appreciated so much. Thank you

Excellent facility with plenty of wonderful dock staff. The on-site restaurant is great. Wonderful in-town marina. Can't say enough!

One of the best yards I have experienced! I have been in the marine industry over 30 years and this is one of the cleanest and most helpful yards I have every been to. We stayed for my sons Regatta and the dockmaster and her staff couldn't have been more helpful! Awesome place to stay.

South Wharf,, great facility and great docks. Right downtown. Close to restaurants and ice cream. Great showers and heads. Good electrical power pedestals. Would certainly go back. Docking staff needs training to help with docking. No restaurants open Monday and Tuesday. Harbor master provides boat side pump out

What a Gem! First impressions when dock hands met us to assist with tie up, shore power, info and brought us a bag of ice! Clean, modern Facility. Great onsite restaurant. Dock hands were the best we encountered during our 10 day trip. Restrooms immaculate, great laundry facility!

I grew up in Padanaram but hadn't been back in decades. What a treat! South Wharf staff was great, village has great eating options. Special place. We'll be back!

by Jennifer b. on Jul 05, 2023
Amazing wharf, excellent and responsive dock master and staff and some of the nicest showers I have seen at a Marina!

by Robert K. - Verified user on May 29, 2023
The wifi was not good. No service for the entire stay. I suggest they eliminate the need for a password. Also, this time, the password was something like this: HapPyoUrs. It was hand written in our (nice) welcome package, making it difficult to get it right. Make the password simple please or eliminate it. Otherwise, excellent service. Highly sheltered docks. Nice village.

Davey and his crew were superb. Professional and nothing was too much trouble. Facilities were significantly better than most marinas we visited. Highly recommend.

Tom Quinn and senior deckhands were great bringing us in and taking care of us. Very customer oriented. Welcome package is great. Cute downtown, good restaurants within easy walking distance. Fun place to explore. Will most definitely return.
