Great location and the staff was excellent.

My wife and I were transiting the ICW coming North. We had some mechanical issues and needed to leave the boat for a week. Maritn, the manager at Bristol was extremely helpful. He helped us into our space on a busy Memorial Day weekend, got us in touch with a mechanic and made sure we had everything we needed. While Bristol's "big sister" marina was just down river, I'll stay at Bristol anytime I'm in Charleston. Thanks Martin.

Just docked for the night did not require any hookups. Stayed in hotel and left in the morning. Very nice docks. They were clean and secure. Dock hand was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

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!

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

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.

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.

Very accommodating! Because of weather, our plans changed up alittle. They did all they could to help us.

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

by Jordyn B. - Verified user 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.
