Alyssa was great, met at the dock ready help out with lines with a smile. The amenities (toilet shower and laundry) all in great shape. The marina is a short walk to several restaurants and a perfect layover while waiting for the canal to turn or wait out some nasty conditions in the bay. Really can't say enough good things about the manager, will definitely be back and highly recommend adding this stop to your travels on buzzards bay.

Our stay at Onset Bay was excellent. The staff was fantastic, best service from any marina I've been at. When we landed, we were met by Tom and two others that handled the lanes, help us move around fenders, got us marina information and local details, great customer service, outstanding. The dock master "Alyssa" was incredible!! I cannot say enough about this marina and staff - Wow!! Thank you all.

Nice clean bathrooms. Men’s showers could use more hooks. A recycling bin should be added

This is a wonderful, well-run, Safe Harbor location. Alyssa and her staff were very helpful with docking and dining recommendations. Onset has a few good restaurants within walking distance as well as a small grocery store and good ice cream. We look forward to revisiting!

September 2023 Our annual stop at Onset. Always a pleasure. They treat us like family. New boaters lounge is being built for 2024! Overall, great staff and facilities! July 2022 the Dock Master, helped us land our 34ft sailboat with an opposing wind. After fueling up, watering up and pumping out, we decided to stay in a slip for a few nights to wait out the upcoming storm. Again The staff assisted us docking into the slip, and tie ing our lines for the expected blow. Thank you for wonderful service!! Also the marina facilities are top notch and very clean. We will be back next year. The above is my comment from a few years ago. The service and the friendliness of Onset continues. They are such lovely people and very helpful. We had a wonderful stay at a well cared for Marina. I even got my laundry done! September 14-16, 2021 Every year we thoroughly enjoy our time at this marina. Roland, the dockmaster has always been very helpful. And the people on the dock have been great about handling lines and getting us in safely. This is a clean, well run marina. This was our third visit this year. Thank you to you all the Dock staff. Lynne and Steve

Tom was the best! Clear instructions on where to be. Helped us out with dinner reservations. Wonderful facilities. Would keep my boat here if they had room!
Marina Response:
Thank you so much for staying with us here at Onset! We are lucky to have Tom on our team. Looking forward to having you return next season!

Great marina. Stayed first night on mooring, then one night on the dock. The new face dock is in excellent condition. The crew (especially Tom) were very helpful and informative (Tom gave us a list of local restaurants he recommends). Only negative is the fuel docks are down (fuel available at Point Independence Yacht Club). Onset Harbor is a great stop over point and Safe Harbor Onset is a great marina (even better if you're a Safe Harbor member).
Marina Response:
Thank you for staying with us Captain, we appreciate the kind review! We are already looking forward to next season and we hope to see you back at Onset!

One of the best marinas for transient dockage. Staff is dependable, professional and cannot do enough for you! The restrooms and laundry areas were spotless. Short walk to nearby restaurants, plenty of ospreys to watch and a beautiful and peaceful place to be.

Great marina. Onset is a beautiful and scenic town! Very friendly and helpful staff! The folks who work at this marina are extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We needed a safe harbor after experiencing some mechanical issues and we were welcomed and made to feel right at home. I would definitely recommend Safe Harbor Onset Bay.

We have always had a wonderful experience at Safe Harbor Onset & this visit did not disappoint.The dock staff was welcoming & attentive to our every need from docking , inviting us to their SH member Luau that evening, offering Dock services to getting ice for us. Thank you for a great visit. We will be back & have already recommended to fellow boaters.
