Martin was wonderful in helping us reserve our transient slip. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable and efficient. The marina is well kept, clean and beautiful. This was our first trip to Bristol and I am confident that it will not be our last!! Thanks again Martin!

Martin did a outstanding job taking care of our group. Safe Harbor Bristol is lucky to have him.

Martin was a great help with my needs and super friendly. Marina was clean and docks are in great shape. Appreciate you having us for the holiday weekend and we will be back soon!

Great dock, helpful staff, plenty of room and not a significant current in this location. Will use this Marina from now on whenever in Charleston

This is the 3rd year in a row we have made this trip. Nice secure marina. Martin always goes above and beyond to make dockage at Bristol painless. He knows how to take care of his guests. We had a problem with one of the boats in our group and he had the part on the dock waiting for us. Whatever you are paying him, double it.

The dock was clean and well maintained. The slip was spacious and easy to find.

Docks were very nice. I had a minor motor issue and Martin was very helpful and found exactly what i needed to fix the issue. We will definitely come visit again. Thank you!

Clean, well maintained and awesome dock staff! Was not allow in through the gate to unload. parking appears to be an issue. Understand the lot was full but just wanted to get in to unload, We managed though.

Slip was open and got in late with good instructions from marina.

We had a great stay at Bristol! Would definitely recommend and dock our boat there again!

Martin was absolutely fabulous and helped all 3 of our boats tremendously. We invited him to eat dinner with us after his work hours and he joined us. Russell and Branwell took great care of our ice and gas needs. Great crew working for the marina. We will visit again.

Dock hands were inexperienced, no fuel, transient slips are 500 yards from the bathrooms and showers, bathrooms lock at 8pm, high current. Will not use again.

Highly recommend Safe Harbor Bristol!! Martin was great and made sure we were squared away!!!

by jordynbaker93 on Jun 24, 2019
We docked our boat at Brisol Marina for one night and we had no issues at all! Martin was great to work with, and he even tied our boat up for us upon arrival. We forgot to ask for the gate code to access our boat early in the morning, and he responded to our message within 10 mins. We will stay again!

Out of all of the marinas we have chosen, we will not go anywhere else now. These people clearly know how to operate an organized and secure operation. We did a one night stay and were very pleased. Thanks you all so much.
