Dock hands were excellent. Laundry area and baths are nothing to write home about but water pressure was fabulous and laundry was $1.50 to wash and dry. Overall, a very positive experience. Would definitely stop here again.
Marina Response:Thank you, Melinda, for the 5-star review. The Team at Safe Harbor South Harbour Village always strives to provide the best hospitality and service. Please note that we have a complete remodel of the laundry room and restroom/shower facilities scheduled for early 2024. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Had a great stay, two nights, at the marina. The dock help is the best, they are not only very capable and helpful but friendly too. The Rusty Hook Restaurant is perfect for a casual meal and drink. All the facilities are very clean. Right on the ICW means no windy, shallow canal to enter. Will definitely stay again.

This the best marina we’ve stated at. The dock crew is by far the best. We needed groceries and they drove us to the grocery store. I can’t say enough about the staff here.

Very nice modern marina with helpful staff. I had an issue with their brand-new ELCI Power Pedestals tripping with my power cord. The dock staff was very helpful in finding a resolution. Very rocky due to wake from passing boats not slowing down, and showers lack privacy and could use a good de-grunging.

Ian (Dock Master) and crew could not have been more helpful. We came into the marina in high winds. Ian guided us through the inlet and had us safely secured without a problem. We ended up having a current issue with the boat when leaving in the am-Ian came in (early) to help us get out of a tough situation safely. He and his team r personable and professional-we r truly grateful for alll they did for us while we were there.
by James H. - Verified user on May 08, 2023
Very nice Marina and excellent staff. The rusty hooks restaurant was great.
by Anne W. - Verified user on May 07, 2023
Ian and the crew are top notch. They really knew what they were doing when we came in during high winds and a strong current. The facilities are nice and convenient to the docks. There are two very good restaurants right off the grounds and a gorgeous park about 1/4 mile away. Town is a short drive away, which is a bit tricky. No Ubers around and sporadic taxi availability. Not walkable. The current was strong when we left at 6am the next morning and our friends got sideways and wedged against three boats. The crew came to the rescue and pulled them off with their workboat. They refused tips offered by our friends. We would stay here again.

The Marina was easy access off the ICW and the dock workers were top notch. They were right there to catch the lines and helped us get off the dock when we left in the wind. They all were very nice. The Marina itself had no ice and no ship store. There were 2 restaurants on the property itself but nothing else around there that was within walking distance. Would stay here again as long as no provisions were needed.

Nice marina, face dock so a little rocking from inexperienced boaters. The marina is well maintained with all the amenities required except one a courtesy car. This is a common issue with Safe Harbor. The good part of safe harbor marinas is it is easy booking and you know the marina will be in good condition.

by Joe F. on Dec 15, 2022
Ian and his staff are top notch with excellent customer service. So much so that we made the decision after a 4 day ocean run with a not so great weather window going forward to leave our boat at the marina for the winter. A great place to stay with a great town and restaurants to visit. People are very friendly and the marina staff goes above and beyond to accommodate our needs. We will enjoy coming back during the winter!
by Russell D. on Dec 07, 2022
Ian and his staff run a great marina! The service is first class. We had to change our dates many times and they made it easy. Very accommodating. You feel at home. We were on the face dock and wakes were minimal. Fueling and pump out at your tie up. Very easy. We hope to make this a regular stop on the way north and the way south. And Southport is a great place to spend some time as well!

by Duane B. on Dec 01, 2022
I was a little surprised about the $10 fee for a pump out, but the staff was very friendly and helped my dock and tie up. I stayed a month for the monthly rate and they are petty cool about leaving a day later if the weather demands it.

We enjoyed staying at Safe Harbor South Village. We extended our stay to let TS Nicole pass to our west. The staff and operations are competent, helpful and professional. New modern floating docks are very secure. The bathrooms and showers need updating however understand they are not under SH control. We would visit again.

Friendly efficient dock crew, especially Ian! Pretty setting. Great Italian restaurant (Joseph’s)
by James M. - Verified user on Nov 15, 2022
South Harbor Village Marina was great from start to finish, plus the personnel there work over and above to make sure everything is right. They were prompt in confirming our reservation. The team was on the dock to get us tied up, registered, fueled promptly and answer any questions. Joseph's Restaurant at the end of the dock was the perfect Italian restaurant for a full day on the ocean. Definitely a \"go-To\" destination.
by David R. - Verified user on Nov 15, 2022
The dockmaster and staff were very helpful. Because of impending severe weather, we requested arriving a day early and staying an extra day. No problem. When we had an issue with the dock pedestal power, the dock master issued us a refund for the electric usage.\nNot sure if there is a captain's lounge with coffee, book library etc. That would be nice. The shower facilities could use a bit of updating and expansion, but then I am spoiled with my home marina's facilities.
by Catherine R. on Nov 14, 2022
We had a great stay at Safe Harbor South Harbour Marina while waiting out T/S Nicole. From the initial call to inquire about availability through to our departure, the staff were helpful, friendly, and professional. Brad, Ian, Todd, and the woman in the office (whose name I cannot remember) were welcoming and helpful. The dock was brand new and rebuilt with very sturdy looking pilings. We felt safe and secure during several days of high winds and rain. The laundry and bathroom facilities were clean and worked well. Laundry cost $1.50 per load and the machines worked well. Thank you for a great stay. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely consider treating ourselves to a stay at Safe Harbor South Harbour marina.
by Tom N. - Verified user on Nov 13, 2022
Our stay was one of the best marina experiences we've had to date. It's a great facility, well maintained and in a fairly protected area. The highlight by far is Ian the dock master and his crew. They are super helpful, amazingly professional and went out of their way to accommodate us and a number of other boats who rode out the impacts of Hurricane Nicole. Ian constantly checked on dock lines and boats, made sure people had extra lines and fenders in right places, offered suggestions about wind and current and generally were their answering questions before they could be asked. A wonderful experience and highly recommended.

Good marina with helpful dock hands, Restrooms are single hole facilities, but are clean, and there's and "extra" bathroom should one be occupied. Most of the boat traffic obeys the "no wake zone", however some don't and it gets a little bouncy on the outer face dock where they put transients. They did put us on the inside of that dock so the waves were somewhat diminished. Rusty Hooks is a good restaurant. Didn't get to try Joseph's. Only down side is it's distance from downtown Southport.
by Paula W. - Verified user on Jun 09, 2022
What a great Marina. Brad and his staff are great. There are 2 restaurants (1not open when we were there-? weekends only). The only drawback was the bathrooms—structurally good but could use a little attention. Definitely a marine I would love to come back to.

Extremely helpful Dock hands and dock master. The inside of the face dock/Transient dock is very protected from the ICW traffic and very calm.

The new dock is lovely, but there is no provision for older boats with old systems. We were not able to use power at all. No rebate or reduction of price was made as the marina staff blamed Dockwa.
Marina Response:Mr. Flynn I am sorry you experienced electrical issues during your stay. I'm not sure if it was explained or not but during our rebuild our electrical system was brought up to the new National Electrical Code (NEC). This has caused breakers on our docks to trip due to a bonded ground issue (neutral/ground tied together) on a boat. We typically will refund however, I have asked Dockwa to refund your electric charge because the reservation is over a month old. They just informed me that it is done. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you stay with us again. Please reach out to me if you have further questions or concerns. Ian-Dockmaster.

Outstanding harbormaster and crew! Excellent help with docking in wind and current. Great facilities with 2 restaurants on site. Also received a transient membership to the Cape Fear Yacht Club nearby, allowing us to join their happy hour. It was such a treat to meet members of the local boating community!

The Safe Harbor South Harbour Village Marina was recently largely rebuilt and rewired. The face/fuel dock in particular is much stronger and stabler than it used to be. The heads and laundry are always clean, the dock guys know their business and the in-the-marina restaurant Fish Hooks is pleasent with a good bar and food a cut above the average on the waterway restaurant.

On behalf of our annual Military Appreciation Day (MAD) volunteers and active duty guests, we want to express our deep gratitude to the staff at the marina for their outstanding community civic mindedness in support of our annual event. As an all volunteer, 100% donor supported organization, we depend on the generosity of the local community and Safe Harbor South Harbour Village Marina definitely showed their local community spirit. Manager, Mike, Dockmaster, Ian and the dock staff couldn't have been more welcoming, generous, and helpful in making the facility available for our use and helping ensure a quality experience for our visiting troops. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the marina and are delighted to have it in the community. Hank Pomeranz, MAD Southport Chapter.
Marina Response:It was our pleasure, Hank. We were happy to see the excited smiles of the young service members as they boarded their assigned boats for a day of fishing. MAD Southport Chapter put on a well organized event and we thank them for their year-round efforts in putting the event together. Thanks also to the boat captains who volunteered their boats, time, and local fishing knowledge to make it a day that these active duty personnel will remember for a lifetime.

Ian Cummings, Jack and the rest of the team are the best. We ALWAYS visit here, as we enjoy the people as well as the great marina. Food is top shelf here too.
Marina Response:Thank you so much for the great review! Our team is always happy to hear that they have been recognized for their efforts. Please come back and see us again. P.S. - We also enjoy Rusty Hooks Dockside Grill and Joseph's Italian Bistro!

Deckhands tore off our stern railing. They had no idea what they were doing or how to dock a 70’ boat. Electricity not always working. Water not always working. 15 minutes from the inlet. Many boats going by. Wakes were noisy and kept us awake. The marina is under construction and looks nothing like the photos on the website. Would never go back.

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Floating docks just about all completely rebuilt after being damaged in last year’s hurricane Isiah. Fat Andy’s Burgers just a 45 minute walk, do it they are great.
Marina Response:The team at Safe Harbor South Harbour Village thanks you for the great review! We are working hard on the finishing touches of the rebuild and will be even better on your next visit. Looking forward to seeing you again next time you are in the area. P.S - we like Fat Andy's too!

Staff was great. The docks were brand new and really nice. Definitely a crowded overnight stop on the ICW. The staff gave us the number of a local driver who took us on a quick provisioning run. Would definitely stop again if we're up this way again.
Marina Response:Thanks for the review, partek! Please stop and see us again if you make it back this way. We hope to be even better next time!

Easy access from the ICW. AWESOME dock master and crew. Advised of current, wind, and approach concerns. Didn’t use the restaurants at the facility but they are highly regarded. Very nice location.
Marina Response:Thanks for the review! It's important to us that we make every transient arrival and departure as seamless as possible. Glad to hear that we were helpful. Please visit us again - we aim to continuously improve and we will be even better next time!

Crowded and no pump out installed yet -even though they advertised online as having one. Lots of construction. Nice staff. Friendly and helpful.

Marina is still under repair from a storm 2 years ago. Temp walkways, only dockage was on the outside of the T dock on a busy waterway.
Marina Response:Thanks for the review. We are actually finishing up a rebuild from Hurricane Isaias in August of 2020. We try to notify all transient guests in advance as to the current situation on our docks. We apologize if we dropped the ball in your case.
by Marc T. - Verified user on Jun 01, 2021
Great place. Still recovering from Hurricane damage but they are trying hard to satisfy. No trash cans on the docks or anywhere on the property
Marina Response:Thanks for the review, pegasus1! I apologize that you were unable to find the trash cans. With ongoing construction they can be hard to spot. Hopefully we will see you this coming weekend and we will be glad to show you the current trash can locations. We will have trash cans on A-Dock once the plumbing installation is complete.

We left a day early because we had to be on the T dock outside on the ICW. Rock-n-rolled all night long and no sleep. We had reservations well in advance and should have been told if they did not have a slip inside. I would not have gone if I knew we were going to be on the fuel dock outside. I would like credit for the second night as we left the Dock right after 11 AM on May 30. Will not go back there!

Good help on the dock, two restaurants on premises
Marina Response:Thanks very much for acknowledging our dock staff! It's a harder job to do correctly than most people would think but we try to make every landing as safely and comfortably as possible. Safe travels but please come back and stay with us again.
by Capt. P. on Oct 18, 2019
Always one of our favorites! Marina manager, Bill Gregory, is the best of the best. The place has everything you need for an overnight or extended stay.
Marina Response:Thanks very much but we couldn't to it without the rest of our service minded staff! Look forward to seeing you again on your next stop. Safe travels---Bill
