Been to OBY for the past 20 years. While it is a lovely marina the best think about this place is the boat yard (our preference for docking). While it doesn't have floating docks (yet) the staff of the boat yard are the best on the East Coast. Graham, Jason and their crew are the best I have experienced in a life of sailing. You cannot go wrong with service in this yard. Simply, the best I have experienced for serious and not so serious repairs.

we had a pleasant stay at the marina 10/3/23 but were annoyed that in season rates were applied despite lack of some services like the pool. Also at these rates, bicycles should be offered for free. We see Safe Harbor is buying up marinas and increasing fees for everything. Disappointing. SUN STAR

As a marina this place is great. Nice, new, clean bathroom/shower set up and fantastic boaters lounge. Solid floating docks in calm water. Pool is also good, but has a fairly small pool deck and not really enough shade parasols on busy days. The marina is a bit far from town, but then there’s not much in town to go to. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Wonderful marina … from the floating docks, inviting pool, huge showers, comfortable lounge. But what really made this an outstanding marina was Jeff (dock master) and his staff (go Marcus). Truly professional, friendly, and always willing to lend a helping hand. The only “hit” was that WiFi was not consistent … sometimes you got it, sometimes you didn’t. Another plus was that the town of Oxford, although not a huge town, was an easy 10 min walk from the marina. Note: if you’re interested in visiting a particular museum/business, check the times that they are actually open. Several places are closed more often than open.

Always a pleasure here. Nicest bath house I have ever seen at a marina. Great pool for a hot day with good view. New mostly floating docks are great with very capable dock hands.
At the moment Wi-Fi at dock is not working great due to problems of merging system with nearby marina with now common ownership. However Wi-Fi in club house is better.
If good Wi-Fi is vital during your stay check for an update when you book. Town has great cell service from antennas on water tower near marina
Stayed here again on 7/19/21. Everything still great except Wi-Fi which is better than before, but can be glacial at times when other people are active. Fortunately there is great cellular coverage from the nearby water tower.
Stayed again on 10/10/22
Pool was obviously closed but service was as good as always. Wi-Fi was good but not a good test as marina was basically empty at this time of year. As a review posted outside the heads says, this place has the greatest showers on the Chesapeake!
Despite being owned by the huge Safe Harbor marina/RV park conglomerate, this marina continues to be top notch with an outstanding staff.
Thank you, we're glad you enjoyed everything and we hope you will get to try out our pool next season!

I rated this as a 3 star for this trip only. The marina staff was helpful as they always have been. We have been there before several times. We have always been on the floating dock side which allows access to the better bathrooms and showers as well in the summer the pool. This time we were placed on the older side at the boat yard. The bathrooms were old and in need of work and the walk to the pool was 5 to 10 minutes. They did offer to come pick you up in a golf cart if they were not busy. This review isn't to reflect on staff. Some of your experience good or bad may depend on the slip selection they put you in. I rated my previous trips with a 5 start as were on floating docks putting you near all the picnic tables, pool and better structures. This reduction was based on slip assignment and amenities with that slip assignment. This is one of our favorite destinations and we will be back again.
Thank you for this honest review and complimenting our staff. We are happy that you plan to return and we will do our best to get you on our floating docks the next time around.

The updated floating docks are wonderful. The baths are beautiful and the lounge is a great resource. But the best experience was the service we received from the Oxford Boatyard. We had a failed air conditioning system that had leaked all of the freon. Graham Norbury diagnosed the issue and effected a quick repair to save our cruise! This is one of the best and most capable technical resources I have encountered in any marina on the Bay in 21 years of ownership.

Unimpressed. Was relegated to a slip in the boatyard that was way to far from the amenities. I felt like the Safe Harbor ‘members’ got the good locations. Will not return.
We’re sorry to hear you weren’t satisfied with your experience. This was an extended holiday weekend with reservations being made as early as January (including a yacht club). For vessels docked at our boatyard side, you still have access to all of the amenities, as well as use of bicycles and our golf cart to shuttle guests. We have a growing number of guests who actually “prefer the boatyard.” We are at near capacity on our floating docks with our seasonal slipholders, but there were no Safe Harbor members there as transient vessels. Please consider us again in the future with an even earlier reservation.
by Nancy B. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2023
The marina side of the facility is very nice and the restrooms are just lovely. I will point out that there are not enough restrooms for the number of guests wishing to shower - there's always a waiting line at peak times.
The boatyard side of the facility needs upgrading if you're going to put nice expensive guests there. The restrooms and dirty and in very poor condition. The docs are in need of reconstruction and are dangerous in some places.
When making a reservation, I believe it's important to let guests know which side of the facility they will be on -

This marina is exceptional. Shout out to Jeff the Dockmaster and Jamie who went above and beyond to help us trouble shoot an electrical issue with the charter boat we were on after hours. Sadly we ended up being without power but it was determined to be an issue with the sailboat and not the shore power at the marina. The facilities are some of the nicest I've used as a transient.

Nice marina, Great pool, floating docks all good.
My sailboat is a 27 foot Catalina. I was put in a 25-foot slip.
Josh on the dock was very helpful getting us tied up.
Getting out was a mess. The ally was too narrow for me to back-out and get a enough clearance on my bow for forward turn. I ended up drifting backward without a way to get clear of any docked boats. Some friends ran to my rescue and managed to push my bow away from the pilings and boats.
by Bob s. on Jun 20, 2023
We had a very nice two night stay at Safe Harbor Oxford in big part because of the staff who were very friendly and helpful, especially with getting our boat into the slip. Also, they have, without question, the best baths and showers on the Chesapeake Bay if not the east coast, and a wonderful club house to relax in with free coffee. My "first mate" loves that part especially. This was our second visit there and we'll be back when we sail to Oxford again.

The problem lies with the inclusion of the old docks from Oxford boatyard (called docks H and I). These docks are fixed and not very high (our dock was 3 inches under water the morning we were trying to leave) and there is quite a walk to the wonderful bathrooms and lounge attached to the original Oxford Marina. But, you still pay the same price as charged at the section with the floating docks and easy access to the bathrooms. This just isn’t right!
Thank you for visiting Safe Harbor Oxford and taking the time to leave a review.
In early 2020 we began the process of completely rebuilding our marina site, and over the course of two years replaced 100% of the bulkheads and fixed timber docks with new heavy duty vinyl sheathing and ipe-decked floating docks, as well as dredging the basin to 7ft MLW. This was both a technically challenging and expensive, but very necessary undertaking due to the condition of the old facilities.
As you undoubtedly noticed, response to the marina has been remarkable and we unexpectedly achieved full seasonal slip occupancy in under a year. With just four marina tee-head slips and two bulkhead tie-ups reserved for transient guests, the majority of visiting vessels necessarily have to be accommodated at our boatyard. This is something we strive to make very clear at the time reservations are confirmed. Regardless of where a vessel ends up being tied up, all shore-side facilities including pool, clubhouse, picnic area and grills are available for your use.
Looking ahead, we already have permit applications submitted to State and Federal authorities for replacement of our boatyard docks and bulkheads with the intent of bringing them up to the same standard as those found at our marina. From a practical standpoint, once we receive the approved permit, implementation will take a couple of years because the construction has to be phased in a way that minimizes impact to our ongoing operations.

The staff at this marina are very helpful, and the actual marina has a pretty setting and great facilities. I had booked well in advance, but, without being told this, was given a slip that is actually in the adjacent Oxford Boatyard, which I guess Safe Harbour has annexed. I realise Memorial Day weekend is a busy one, but the docks/amenities are totally different. Old docks and finger piers, a 15 minute walk out on the road to get to the marina bathhouse/office/pool/facilities. There is a small, old restroom facility at the boatyard. I was charged the same price as I would have paid at a nice new dock, close to all the luxuries. (Price higher than last year.) As sailors, my crew and I made the best of it, and enjoyed Oxford, but a free bottle of wine at check-in didn’t quite compensate for the very different facilities at the boatyard.

Our ship spent 4 months on the hard in the boatyard where we had quite a bit of work done. The planning and execution of all tasks was very professional and the analysis and recommendations made were experienced and helpful. The communication in the boatyard and between boatyard and marina functioned very well. All staff members were helpful and friendly and made our stay a pleasant experience. We definitely plan to return again next year!

The marina staff was really pleasant and helpful docking. The marina itself was clean and well kept. There were floating docks, but we (being transient boaters for one night) were put on a fixed dock which was difficult at high tide and low tide. The town is in walking distance, and really quaint. Plenty of food choices and intriguing historic areas. All in all we would return to Safe Harbor Oxford and bring stepstools.

Still our favorite marina on the Bay, But.......
We were on the bulkhead instead of in the boatyard as booked. There was no hose bib available & cars parked within five feet of the boat for most of the weekend
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and please help us spread the word about our showers and facilities - we have heard this from numerous transients who have stayed here with us, as well!

Safe Harbor in Oxford with Jeff was an excellent experience!! We had such a great time and everyone was super friendly that we can’t wait return with a request to tie to the bulk head again! Thanks Jeff!!
Thank you once again for staying with us this season and we're glad you liked our newly renovated bulkhead! For those reading, the bulkhead is approximately 50' from our pool and dock office and can accommodate a vessel as large as 55' (5' depth). It is also protected with dock rubber and there is an electric pedestal and water available.
We hope to see you next season!

Our visit was nice, the clubhouse a great place to gather the only negative was that two of our boats were at the Boatyard which was inconvenient for their access to the Clubhouse and its amenities. If Safe Harbor is to successfully incorporate the Boatyard into its Oxford operation, similar high quality amenities should also be made available there.
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. From a historical perspective, Oxford Boatyard and Mears Yacht Haven Oxford were operationally combined into a single entity in January 2014 when they were both acquired by Brewer Yacht Yards. Both sites were in need of serious maintenance and improvement, which Brewer began to address immediately. In 2016 we delivered the new marina clubhouse & bathrooms, and then turned our attention to the marina docks, bulkheads and dredging. As you may imagine, a project of that complexity takes time to design, obtain permits and build; Phase 1 included a new fuel dock, bulkheads and A, F & G docks opened in 2020, and Phase 2 dredging and the remaining floating docks opened in 2021.
Now that the marina renovation is complete, we are actively turning our attention to the boatyard. A permit application has recently been submitted for bulkheading and dock replacement, and in parallel we are working on designs for new shore-side facilities including office space, bathrooms, laundry and customer lounge. Permitting of the docks through MDE and Army Corps is likely to take +1yr before construction can start, then the construction will need to be phased to enable boatyard operations to continue as seamlessly as possible. While I can't yet forecast an opening date, I do anticipate this being a multi-year endeavor much like the marina was.
Enjoy the remainder of your holiday weekend

No docking assistance even when dockmaster was given plenty of notice that we were being towed in a disabled boat. After he said he would have a couple guys there. Never checked on us. And it was in regular hours
I'm sorry you feel we didn't meet your expectations.
When you called on Friday morning looking for a slip and explained that you were a catamaran with only one engine working, we assigned you a very easily accessible 115ft long T-head and offered to help you tie up but you said you were going to wait out in the Tred Avon until a tow boat could bring you in. Considerably later when the tow boat had you underway, the tow captain hailed our dockmaster - who at the time was helping two other customers fuel up - and said he was fine and did not need any assistance. At this time of year with the dock kids back at school we have minimal staffing, but even so would have been happy to help had you waited for Jeff to finish up with the two boats already alongside.

We booked a slip on 9.24,2021, destination Oxford, MD for the 4th year in a row. Booked smoothly thru DOCKWA as usual and got lined-up for the following weekend. I asked for a "side-tie" on any available "T" dock so my Grand-kids could launch their kayaks. I know this was short notice but Jeff called me & confirmed he'd fix us up. Upon arrival it was evident Safe Harbor was "booked-up" but true to Jeff's work we got tied-up with no problem. Thanks Jeff!

Wonderful experience, Jeff the manager made every attempt to make our stay comfortable...when my boat would not accept the new pier power pedestal, he had it changed out to one that would work for my boat. Facilities are the best we have ever seen. We happen to stay their season ending weekend, which gave us an opportunity to partake in their picnic celebration free of charge...may have to make that a yearly event!

The newer facilities at Safe Harbor Oxford are really nice: good docks, lounge, beautiful and clean bathrooms.
We were at first put in the older section, the (former?) Oxford Boat Yard. The docks are fixed and we were able to move to the newer section after one night. Good thing we did because a storm rolled through and the old docks for completely submerged!
The wifi cut in and out a lot, which wasn't a big deal because we had our own wifi on the boat.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Town was cute and a lot of fun to visit.

Excellent facility with new floating docks and new clubhouse with large individual bathrooms. Dockmaster Jeff is friendly and extremely helpful. Oxford is a gem of a town.

The Dockwa reservation process was not only easy and quick, initially, when I extended the initial reservation two times, the Dockwa app was done with ease and promptly.
When we arrived at Safe Harbor Oxford, we were welcomed by Jeff, and subsequently responded to our requests for fuel, pump out and ice; and, the slip assignment was with the considerations that I had noted in my reservation request. PERFECT!
Our interactions with Jerry and the Dockhand that invited us to the ice cream social were as if they had known us for years!
When we left, this morning, I was sad. I want to go back, more. We are LiveAboards, I wish Save Harbor Oxford would consider having Us as permanent LiveAboard Slipholders.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to post your review. I wanted to let you know that although there are many Safe Harbor Marinas offering slips to live-aboards, our local town harbor management ordinance restricts the use of vessels "as an abode" to periods of less than 60 days without special permission. As a result we simply are not set up with the appropriate facilities for long term car parking, in-slip pumpout etc.
by Don B. - Verified user on Aug 22, 2021
We (79 years old) were berthed in the old Boat Yard and not with our Club members in the new part of the marina. We were so far away we never used the new bathhouse and pool, etc. The piers where we berthed were in poor condition and not what you should expect for the the price we paid for the stay.
I'm sorry you do not feel you received value for money. Our transient rate is in-line with other properties with very similar age/condition docks as those found at our boatyard, and while we do try to place visiting vessels at our newer floating docks this is not always possible because we do get very busy. We do our best to communicate this at the time a reservation is made and also offer a golf-cart shuttle during business hours and bicycles for rent any time.

When we came in the winds were blowing pretty hard we had two dock hands helping us but if they knew how to use a spring line it would have gone much smoother. They were more concerned getting the bow and stern lines and didn’t secure the spring line. If they had secured the spring line first I could have motored fwd and laid up along side the dock

by James B. - Verified user on Aug 17, 2021
It was OK. We were expecting to be at the floating piers, but were at the fixed docks. The prearrival email from the marina had a dock plan, but did not include the pier to which we were assigned.
One of the dock crew did not understand that if you take a line, you put it to a cleat, not stand on the pier and hold it (safety issue for the person).
In the plus side, no jelly fish.

June 2021 - Love the floating docks! The marina looks great and we thoroughly enjoy our time in Oxford and will continue to stay at this marina. Jeff is very helpful, courteous and friendly. Our only issue with the marina is the lack of lighting in the dock area as nighttime visibility is very poor.
October 2020 - We were happy to be able to get back to Oxford now that phase 1 of the dock work was completed. We love the town of Oxford and we really enjoy stating at this marina. We do strongly recommend that the docks be furnished with lighting as it is very dark and could be dangerous walking the docks after dark. Additionally, we had issues the the WIFI connection and suggest boosters be placed along the docks to improve service. The dock work completed to date is very well done. We will be back next season.
This is an older review - We enjoyed our stay at the Oxford Marina and Boat Yard. We were disappointed that there is no longer a complimentary continental breakfast available. Additionally, there was no water on "G" dock which was a great inconvenience to a couple we were traveling with. Seems not much was being done to correct the problem as the line broke on Friday and still no water on Sunday.
We will definitely stay at this marina in the future.
Thank you for the nice rating and feedback. Though we have indeed scaled back the continental breakfast, we do still offer it on holiday weekends and when we have larger group bookings, so hopefully you can catch it then. Unfortunately, we did have a waterline break during your friend ‘s stay—chalk it up to sometimes things just happen—but after an appropriate window opened to correctly amend the issue, one of our pros was able to successfully perform the repair. We’re glad to hear you will stay with us in the future.

FIRST REVIEW July 2018: We have been talking about coming here for years and seem to go everywhere else in the area but Oxford. Finally made it on July 7&8 with three other boats in our group. We absolutely loved the town of Oxford. This marina is in a perfect location and is well maintained. We stayed at the boatyard side which we liked as it was quieter on Sat night. The amenities which are mostly on the other side including fabulous bathrooms and pool and gas grills were nice and only a very short walk. Could use more bathrooms as there was a line Sat night. When the boatyard work resumed Mon morning it was loud and I'm not sure I would enjoy this side during the week but we were leaving anyway. Capsize restaurant and the famous ice cream store are right there. We biked and walked all over town and truly enjoyed it. Plan to come back in August for another weekend. My husband says it's now his favorite marina and price is very reasonable too.
UPDATE September 2019: Can I give more than 5 stars? Never made it back last year due to weather issues but made sure to come here in May of this year and again this past week. We stayed on the marina side both of these times and absolutely loved both stays again as did our friends who came along. Jeff and his staff are top notch, efficient and super friendly. We have friends who keep their sailboat here and they love it as well. If we lived closer, this would be our home marina. Thanks, Jeff!! See you next year!
Update: May 2021: We never got back to the marina in 2020 due to the construction and the pandemic. We made sure to get there early this season and spent two days May 23 and 24. The new floating docks are just beautiful as is the whole marina. Staff is great as always. Our only issue was that we tripped the breaker on the power pedestal a few times. Once it was one of our A/Cs and once it was a coffee maker but it was not even consistent. We understand that the electrical is up to the latest codes and many boats may have some issues. From my reading up on it it seems like many older boats ( ours is 2006 cruiser 42 ft) and even some newer boats can have issues so keep that in mind. We know it was not our power cords. We will definitely go back and we think we worked out how to mot trip the breakers.
Update June 2021: Jeff the dock master was extremely helpful and friendly as always. After we tied up at our lovely floating slip we discovered that we tripped the breaker again on the power pedestal. We tried several different permutations of power cords, splitters and even a different pedestal but kept tripping. Our friends with a newer boat had no problem. Jeff was able to move us to a really nice slip on the T over at the boatyard side where we had no problems. I’m fact we’re thought our view was even nicer! Although it is a longer walk to the really nice bathhouse and clubhouse and the pool it is not a deal breaker at all. We definitely plan to come back since we love the marina, the staff and the town of Oxford. Meantime we will continue to look into our boat’s electrical system and our power cords to see if there is a fixable issue. Thanks again, Jeff!
Thank you for this excellent review! We’re glad to hear we are your new favorite marina and we anticipate your return.

The new facilities are excellent and the dock boys and girls are also excellent and helpful. However, when I first arrived they asked me to go into a slip at "The Shipyard" (old fixed slips rather than the floating slips at the marina) which had no 50 Amp service and and was very difficult to get off; especially for my wife. I requested to be relocated to the marina and they did accommodate this request. As I said the Maria itself and its facilities are excellent.

Great marina. Location is perfect for access to this quaint town, we walked from the marina to Docs and made our way back easily. There is a small town beach nearby for any other shell collectors and some locals were fishing perch from the pilings. Marinas bathhouse and showers were fantastic. I think the bathhouse could be fitted out more to include appliances like freezer, real cream in the fridge etc and some kind of breakfast option since the local town literally had none. It may be covid related. Our dock did not have floating docks, I understand its being updated. The team member who came out was helpful, printed out information and map for us.

We stopped here for a day to explore the town of Oxford. Jeff, the manager, was great. He met us on the dock, welcomed us to the town and marina and helped us tie up. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants (Capsize was outstanding) as well as all the information of what to see and do while we were there. The facilities were clean, showers and lounge were top notch. The marina is converting to floating docks and this was in process while we there but it was not noisy. This sleepy little town is very quaint and cute. The marina is centrally located. Wifi was also good at the lounge. There are picnic tables and chairs to sit outside and enjoy views of the water too.

Another great stay at Safe Harbor Oxford, Jeff always makes us feel right at home and the facilities are extremely well mainained. Can't wait for next summer when the floating docks will be finished. It should be awesome!

Nice marina. Nice people. Like the improvements they are making. Expensive fuel prices. When staying at the marina bike rentals should be free.

We were pleasantly surprised by all of the updates and improvements we found at this marina. The bath house was gorgeous, with individual rooms containing sink, toilet and shower within each, which were very large! There was plenty of countertop, benches and hooks to hold all of the necessities for cleaning up after a day at the pool and/or boating. There was also a beautiful lounge area with sofa and chairs in the building. along with a large deck outside with tables and chairs. The staff were all very helpful. Jeff and Wes were also flexible when we decided to spend another night. It was very convenient to have bikes available for rental at $2.95 per hour, and we really enjoyed exploring the historical town and local restaurants. The cuisine at each exceeded our expectations as well. We look forward to coming back when the new floating slips are completed by the pool. It was a great experience!!!

The dock hands were terrific - both getting fuel, pump out and towing up. The facilities are wonderful - the new restrooms are exquisite- as is the community room. New docks going in - floating docks. Wish Oxford had more to it. Was there on a Tuesday after Labor Day and just about everything was shut down - so enjoyed the marine, the other cruisers and the bike ride around town!
by Kelly M. - Verified user on Sep 08, 2020
Amazing staff, gorgeous & clean bath house, large pool, brand new lodge with freshly brewed morning coffee and use of bikes are just a few reasons you need to stay at Safe Harbor Oxford. Jeff and Wes went above and beyond to accommodate us, allowing us to stay an unexpected extra night. Jeff even used his personal car to drive us to dinner! Outstanding marina! We will definitely be back!
Thank you for this amazing review! It was a lot of fun having you guys here over the holiday weekend and we look forward to having you return. We'll be certain to go "above and beyond" again!

The staff was wonderful and accommodating. We initially had issues with making our reservations correctly. Wes and Jeff were gracious and assisted.
While there is construction for the new docks, the grounds are well maintained. The bath and club house are new and beautiful. The restrooms were the nicest we have experienced on all of our visits to marinas.
Perfect location to see the town. We can't wait for our next visit!

Construction caused some issues. We were initially placed on a slip without a starboard pylon (ask to be relocated if they give you I-3). Our second attempt had issues with the electrical. To the marina's credit: they refunded the electrical and eventually placed us on a slip with functioning power so all's well that ends well. Would return after the construction is finished as the new piers look top notch!
Slip I-3 works for most (usually great for Catamarans and larger sailboats) but may not be for everyone. Thank you for the feedback. Apologies again for the electrical issues, but yes - all's well that end's well. Please do visit us again.

This is the place to go for fuel during COVID-19 the dockhands katelyn handed the gas pump over to me with a clorox wipe and wiped down the pump after I was done fueling very clean and professional for these times it was safe and great thanks

Great Staff, great new clubhouse and shower facilities. The locals and the other transients are all "boaters", not shirtless idiots on Sea Rays drinking out of plastic cups with loud music.
Good to see that they are apparently planning to convert to floating docks, this would be wonderful. My home base is Safe Harbors Zahnisers in Solomons, and I hope they follow the leader.
And love Oxford, Robert Morris, Pope's, the setting sun over the Tred Avon, the rising sun, the watermen departing at dawn. All.

Have been stopping at this marine for 20+ years and always liked it. Great service, great location, friendly competent staff. The relatively new heads/shower building is by far the nicest I have ever seen at a marina!
As others have noticed there is construction going on during the day as they upgrade to floating docks. The today we were there the pool was rather noisy as they were working next to it.
Also considering this was in the middle of the Covid crisis and the staff had a handout with safety rules for guests, at no point did I see a staff member with a face mask either indoor or outdoor. However, in the the few retail businesses in the rest of the town there was attention paid to this issue by the store staff. I hope the marina staff pays more attention to this issue until he crisis subsides as everything else was excellent.
NOTE: Safe Harbor corporate leadership does not make it easy to contact them on such feedback issues: No message capability on their Twitter page (https://twitter.com/wearesafeharbor) and no readily findable way to send feedback on their website (https://shmarinas.com/) Both are common on firms selling to consumers.

I was there on Sat, July 4th as part of a group of 4 boats on an Independence Day weekend cruise. Before the trip, some of our group had reservations about coming to the marina given the construction and previous comments. However, Jeff assured us that construction equipment would be out of the way and they could accommodate us. I have to say he went beyond our expectations to put our group close together and do everything he (and the rest of the staff) could do to make the experience a good one for us. The pool, clubhouse, bathhouse and pavilion areas were clean when we arrived and then were inspected regularly. Thanks for putting so much effort into customer service!
We are very excited about bringing our customers a brand new marina once the construction is complete. In the meantime, we are open for transients and we'll do our absolute best to accommodate. Thank you for this excellent review and it was a lot of fun having your group here last weekend - see you next time!

my husband and I came in over night. the walk from the dock to the office to check in was lengthy but doable. my concern lies in what we heard when we checked in.. as we entered the office the dock master and one of his dockhands were discussing current events in our country. the boy was going on about the protests and making, to be blunt, shockingly racist comments. the things he said were not only offensive to people of color but cruel. wishing death upon people was when it really broke my heart. the work place is NOT the place for expressing political opinions! I find it difficult to state my disappointment to see that Safe Harbor allows open racism on the job.

Jeff, manning the desk, was very helpful and accommodating. Lot's of construction, but not a big deal to me; ongoing improvements is a good thing. Pool is elevated with a great view of Town Creek. Nice place to relax. Capsize bar/restaurant next door was good; food good, staff friendly. Docs, in town, is also excellent. Bicycles available for rent make for a great day of exploring Oxford, or if adventurous, taking the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry across the river. We will be back.
Thanks for visiting! See you again soon.

Nice pleasant staff. Not a good value at all compared to other marinas close by. No discount for weekday stays. Terrible dirty tiny bath house. Marina is under construction June 2020 so transient slips must go to the yard which is literally 1/4 mile away from the pool. That said, there was a wonderful restaurant next door named capsize.
I am a little surprised by your statement that we are "not a good value compared to other marinas close by". From what I understand, at least 3 other Oxford locations are totally closed to transients due to concerns over ongoing pandemic. Yes, we are under construction and have been making people aware of this at time of booking, we clean all our restrooms at least twice a day, and our pool and clubhouse are open for use.
The distance from the head of I-dock to our swimming pool is 1300 feet, and 650 feet to Capsize. One has cool, clean water and a great view, the other has cold drinks and good food. I guess the choice is yours whether you turn left or right, but if you were tied up at the marina you'd have to walk nearly 2000ft to get to the drinks!
Thanks for visiting!

Came in this morning and the wind was heavy. Two dockhands were standing on the fuel dock. The wind blew me into the corner for a rough dockage. The young lady, Kaitlyn, worked very hard to help me in. Yet, the blonde young man who was also there stood and watched as we struggled. When he then took another boat Kaitlyn was left to assist them off and straighten up the dock lines, all the while continuing to help me as well. A big thanks to her for all her help though the work seemed unevenly distributed. Thanks.
Thanks for leaving your thoughts. Training our dockhand is most definitely an ongoing process and some have been with us longer than others. While I wasn't present to witness your docking, I have always made it clear to our staff that they are not human fenders and should never put themselves in between disaster and a heavy moving object. Paint can be fixed more easily than broken bones!
Enjoy your summer on the water.
by Walter S. on Jun 09, 2020
We've stayed here before and loved it. To the dockmaster, it would be helpful if you posted here or on your website the construction and opening plan (when will pool and other facilities be open). We hope to return in mid July!

Realize the marina is under renovation but a little effort to ease the inconvenience would have been appreciated. For the time being it is a good hike t through the construction to the office and the bath house. Power reliability is dodgy. At full price I might have expected at least an effort to move people from the boat yard docks to the office via golf cart or free bikes. Will be nice eventually but can’t recommend this marina this season.
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback.
Our marina staff have been making every effort to advise everyone at the time of booking that we are undergoing marina construction and as a result transient all vessels are being located at our boatyard slips. There is unavoidably some disruption on the marina site, but most people understand this to be a necessary evil in order to rebuild the docks and bulkheads in their entirety. If you were familiar with the state of the old bulkheads prior to breaking ground last January, you will understand exactly how important this project is to us.
Our rates are indeed unchanged from 2019 at $2.50/ft per night. Whether or not you consider this "full price" is a matter of perspective. When I joined Oxford Boatyard in 2004 we were charging $2.00/ft per night for a slip at the boatyard, and now here we are 16 years later charging just 50 cents more. I don't think there is more to add to that, other than I think it would be wise to anticipate rates will increase after our multi-million dollar marina infrastructure investment is complete next summer.
Free bikes would indeed be a nice touch, but unfortunately we have found it necessary to obtain a security deposit to ensure bikes are returned after use. You may find this surprising, but if there is no fee, they tend to get abandoned all over town and sometimes even underwater in unoccupied slips! Sounds crazy until you're the one "fishing" for a bicycle!
I am investigating the electrical issue. As far as I can tell it is affecting just one outlet on the piling between H3 and H4? From what I understand Jeff & Wes were able to get you hooked up to a different outlet, so hopefully you were not without power for long.
Hope to see you next season.

Obviously I can't give it a 5 star since the marina is in the middle of a major renovation and due to Covid the services are somewhat shutdown. That said, everyone was very helpful and happy. We look forward to the "new" facilities and will return when complete. The "H" dock was pleasant but there were numerous power cables in the water, dock power lines submerged at high tide--all of which is a concern for stray current issues. Also, initially we were told you had no functioning pumpout stations, then after we were there we were told over on "I" dock there was a pumpout hose. The marina did loan us a longer shore power cable so we could plug in without backing into the slip and that was much appreciated.
by Susan F. - Verified user on Jun 01, 2020
Very disappointing. Entire marina is under construction: new bulkheads, pilings, docks and landscaping. New bath house and pool closed. Limited transient slips only at the boatyard docks. Would have been nice if they communicated this when making reservations. Wait til 2021, will probably be much nicer then!
I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit but feel a 1 star review was a little harsh considering the bigger picture and challenges of operating during an ongoing pandemic. I can assure you first hand that my staff and I have been actively advising everyone who calls that we have marina construction underway and that pandemic-related restrictions are affecting both our operations and other attractions such as the local restaurants and bars that are normal favorites for our guests.
Presently the State of Maryland has mandated *all* common areas (including our clubhouse building) remain closed. As of Friday evening Governor Hogan amended his executive order to allow outdoor pools to reopen at reduced capacity under strict operating guidelines, but ultimately we cannot open our pool until our County Health Department performs their inspection. Believe me, if we could open our pool we certainly would have done so!
Our construction activity is indeed disruptive, which is why we took the decision to place all transient visitors at our boatyard docks. This winter three crews have been hard at work replacing 100% of the old bulkheads; at this point they are about 85% complete. Our new floating fuel dock is up and running along with all new tanks, lines and electronic dispensers and as soon as trenching for new electrical and water service is completed we will be able to re-grade the parking lot and eliminate the bulk of the mess in the next couple weeks. The project will then take a break for the remainder of the summer and over the winter we will remove the remaining fixed docks, perform maintenance dredging and then install new floating docks on the south side of the property.
Please do visit us again in 2021!

We came to Oxford 10/7, after dragging anchor on a 20+ knot windy evening in San Domingo Creek 10. We called some marinas in Oxford, but they were all closed. I saw a t-head open and tied there for the night, We checked in using dockwa that evening and the next morning we checked in with the dock-master. The docks are a little dated and could use a few new boards. Always a pleasant stay. Bath house and showers are first class. Additional bathrooms and showers are attached to the fuel dock next to the pool. There is also a club room with large flat screen, that I did not take advantage of. This marina is across the street from the Strand where awesome sunsets are viewed. The dock master and dock hands are great, always helpful and pleasant. Oxford is a favorite stop for us coming from Solomon's, Md. There are marina sponsored activities several times during the summer. The marina is pet friendly.
This past trip 10/27-10/28 we biked to the community center to watch the midnight play Rocky Horror Picture Show.
We replaced our 35 pound scoop anchor for our 40' sailboat with a 66 pound Bruce. Wife said no more anchor dragging.

My second time here this past weekend. Made a last minute reservation for Labor Day and they had space available! Very responsive beforehand on the phone, and very responsive when raised on VHF for docking assignment. And, they have the most luxurious facilities to boot. Add in Oxford, with its great restaurants and history, and you can't go wrong.
Thank you for this excellent feedback and we're glad we could get you in over the busy weekend - we'll see you again next time!
by Linda B. on Sep 02, 2019
This is a total bait and switch. If you are a larger boat, they will put you at Brewers Boatyard which is quite the distance from the nice bathhouses, clubhouse and swimming pool. To get to the main marina, you have to walk out to the main road, pass a public beach and some condos to get to the entrance. The view from the boatyard is terrible, there aren’t grills or grassy areas with tables. This should be listed as a separate marina since the amenities are no where near the same. If I wanted to spend my evening in a boatyard with a huge gravel parking lot behind the dock and a huge red boat lift in the way...then this would have met my needs. Yuck!!!!
We apologize again for you not having a great experience. Since the time we were bought by Brewer in 2014, and later, Safe Harbor in 2016, The Marina side and Boatyard side have been combined as one. When making reservations we urge you to add specific requests if needed or a desired docking location. Depending on availability, we will do our best to accommodate. Also, be mindful that weekends and holidays should be booked well in advance. We do offer transportation between the boatyard and Marina via our Van, golf cart or bicycles. Thank you.

First off, they handled our docking in a 30+ squall with skill and confidence. Once that passed, they were cheerful and helpful. The showers have been updated and may be the best on the Bay. The adjacent relaxing room is a very nice touch, with free coffee and tables inside and out on a veranda to enjoy an evening before heading into town for dinner.

Took shelter at safe harbor oxford during this particularly windy weekend. Came in after hours but marina was proactive in giving me the information I would need beforehand. Facilities were clean and well managed. Staff appeared to be mostly for show as two boys couldn’t ring me up for a simple toiletry item until a young woman, Katelyn, rushed out to help me in their place. I suppose that’s just the service you get from summer employees but she covered for them well and even gave us a hand off the dock. Ultimately a pleasant experience. 4/5
Thank you for leaving a review and please visit us again. Each one of our staff has different skills that when all pulled together make for a nice, running machine. We also do our best to train our staff in every aspect needed throughout the summer.

We had a super weekend at Safe Harbor Oxford. We had high expectations from reading the reviews and the marina and staff met those expectations. As we had hoped, we were lucky enough to have the famous ”Katelyn” help us in. She was as helpful as the reviews said she would be. The town was particularly active this weekend but just as welcoming as always. Great vacation spot.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Jeff, the dockmaster, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. This marina has, by far, the nicest, newest, and cleanest showers/restrooms on the Chesapeake. Loved this stop. Lovely little beach within walking distance. Also a dog-friendly and very good restaurant you can walk to (Capsize). Enjoyed walking into the tiny town, getting sandwiches at the local deli (where you can also purchase wine, beer and some groceries.). Sat in the lovely waterside park at the picnic tables and savored the view. Uber/Lyft options not readily available if you want to go to other restaurants—only downside. Highly recommend Oxford Marina.

A lot of money and attention has been spent on amenities such as the pool, clubhouse and picnic area. This was wonderful and greatly appreciated. Now it is time to pay attention to the fundamental underpinnings of the marina structure. The finger docks are wobbly and borderline unsafe. The pilings are also weak.

The marine seems to be a bit under staffed. We came in for fuel this morning and Katelyn was the only one at the dock office. She took 3 boats at once and ran the radio. However, she did an excellent job and never missed a beat. Very hard working. Thanks.

Great marina in Oxford with easy access to many excellent restaurants nearby. Excellent service by Jeff and all of the dock hands. One of our favorite stops!!
Thank you for this amazing review! Seeing as we have a few rookie dockhands this season, this is really nice to hear - please visit us again.

The staff at the oxford marina got me taken care of quickly despite a busy day. Kaitlyn is a pro with the ropes, best clove hitch I’ve ever seen.
Thank you! We try and rise to the occasion even on busier days so that everything and everyone is STILL taken care of properly. Katelyn is now a veteran of our dockstaff and we will be sure to pass this on.
by David E. on Jun 25, 2019
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable; the bathhouse was very large, clean and beautiful; the view from the marina was incredible; and the location was ideal since it was in walking distance of restaurants, shopping and a public beach.

Stayed at Safe Harbor Oxford with some friends over the weekend and it was very enjoyable. Katelyn helped us tie up and it is so nice to see a dockhand who knows what she’s doing. I will definitely recommend the marina!
by April U. on Jun 14, 2019
We love visiting Oxford Brewer (Safe Harbor Oxford) marina. The staff are always exceptional and very accommodating, beautiful pool, and, of course, the wonderful new, always clean bath house & club room. We typically visit multiple times a season and have never been disappointed in the least.
Thank you for this! We really appreciate it. And here’s to hoping you are somewhere in the middle of “multiple visits” this 2019 season.

We had a really nice visit to Oxford and Safe Harbor Oxford marina. The approach from the channel was easy and the staff gave clear and accurate instructions over the radio. The fixed pier was in very good condition and we had no problem getting securely into our slip. The clubhouse, including bathrooms and showers, appeared to be quite new and very nice, and the pool was clean and very welcome on a very hot day. Jeff, the marina manager, and his dockhand (whose name I don't recall) were great, and Jeff even gave us a ride to Doc's for dinner. All in all, a very good experience and we'd definitely stay here again on a return visit to Oxford.
Thank you very much for this great review! We were happy to help and please visit again soon.

I couldn’t leave a tip for the great help today, so I thought I’d leave a review instead! Katelyn had a friendly smile and energy that you just don’t see these days. Katelyn, if you get a well deserved raise from this review then consider it your tip!
by Anonymous on May 14, 2019
I came in for fuel a couple weeks back and I’ve got to say that the staff needs some serious customer service training. Katelyn was great, real friendly, I think she’s been there for a while now. But the new girl could afford to crack a smile once in a while. The attitude really made the place seem less than welcoming for the first time in a while.
We are sorry to hear you were somewhat disappointed with your experience at our fuel dock recently. As is the case every season, we were in early training at that time, so I would fully expect the customer service to improve more and more each and every time from here on out. We will make sure that it DOES. But it's also good to hear back from people regarding anything and everything at our Marina, so thank you!

Very enjoyable stay. Marina is well located in a protected basin, and staff is helpful.
But it's October. Be aware that local restaurants have reduced hours, but marina staff advises that local restaurants will pick up customers if asked.
Thank you! It's always great to extend our season with guests in the fall. We'll see you next time!

We stayed here last week for the
first time in a few years. The new shower/head combos are awesome and among the best in the bay. The nearby club room with free coffee was a plus. We had to leave a day early due to weather coming in. Jeff was gracious. We got our refund notice immediately. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to Oxford.
We are very glad that you decided to return to Oxford Marina, and it sounds like you had a nice visit. Please come back and stay with us again next season, and we will work hard to earn your last star!

Nice, quiet marina with great amenities. The bathrooms are really nice! The pool is great for kids and there is a small beach across the street. The ice cream shop, Scottish Highlands, and restaurant, Capsize, next door are really good.
Thank you and we're glad you enjoyed our Marina and the town of Oxford itself!

Safe Harbor's Brewer Oxford Marina is one of the best stops in the middle Chesapeake/Choptank River you'll find. There facilities are excellent, with gorgeous bath houses, a beautiful lounge area, well maintained docks, and a very helpful staff. Fuel and pump outs are available and very convenient to access. Located in the protected waters of Town Creek, off the Tred Avon river, transients can enjoy a peaceful nights sleep with minimal rocking and rolling due to weather and passing boats. The pool is delightful, and many excellent restaurants are within an easy walk into town. The marina also has a fleet of excellent bikes that can be rented hourly or by the day. The only knock on this marina is the cancellation policy of 72 hours, which is considerably longer than most stops on the bay.
Thank you for this great review - we're glad you enjoyed our amenities and please visit us again soon!
by Allan S. on Jul 10, 2018
My wife and I have cruised all over the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva peninsula visiting numerous marina. The Oxford marina which we recently visited was by far and away one of the best. Their showers, restrooms, lounge area are unequaled anywhere. Their staff are helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. And its location is most pleasant. Call my waters. Great small town. Good local restaurants. And close to so many other boating destinations. We will definitely be back!
Thank you Allan for this great review! We’re always delighted to hear we could be a new regular destination and we’re glad you enjoyed every aspect.
by Joseph D. on Jul 09, 2018
What an excellent visit. We spent two nights (July 5and 6) and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The facilities are first rate--as good as any we've found on the Chesapeake Bay. And the harbor master and his crew were not only helpful they were pleasant and cordial. Just an excellent experience. Thank you.
Thank you for this nice review! We were glad you and your fellow cruiser were able to spend a couple of nights at Oxford Marina. Our staff genuinely take pride in our jobs at the Marina and like to converse and hear boater’s stories. We’re glad you could see this reflected in our work. Please visit us again soon.

We stayed a very pleasant 2 nights at Brewers over the 4th of July in the midst of a miserable heatwave. For that reason, nearly all our time in Oxford was spent in or near the pool. The Pool, Clubhouse and Marina bathhouse are first class. The marina staff are very helpful and even gave us a ride to the market which we would likely have walked to in more comfortable temps. On the downside, Brewers docks are separated and transients are usually on the Boatyard docks, which are a short walk from the upgraded marina facilities. The boatyard bathhouse is not even a close second compared to the marina side, which is unfortunate when its 100 degrees so you are sweaty again by the time you get back to the boat. There is a great restaurant (Capsize) and Ice Cream (Highland Creamery) that are on the Boatyard side, so there are advantages to that side as well. In less brutal heat, these observations wouldn't be of much concern. Brewers was a very nice experience and we won't hesitate to visit again and will recommend to anyone looking to visit Oxford.
Thank you for your feedback and the nice rating. Although we are now 1 sole facility, you are correct that the Marina and Boatyard sides both have their advantages and we’re happy to hear you discovered these. Unfortunately, our air conditioning was awaiting repair at the boatyard heads at your time of visit but was to be back up and running imminently. We apologize for this. The marina side does fill up very quickly for larger vessels, hence boats being assigned at our larger boatyard slips for dockage. Slips are assigned first come first serve so the earlier the request, the better chances of docking closer to the pool and our clubhouse. We’re glad you enjoyed our amenities and please visit us again soon!

Radioed the fuel dock and got a prompt response. Had 3 dock hands to help us tie up. One very professional young woman stood out, Katie. She was sweet and knowledgable, helped us fuel up, pump out and delivered ice to the boat. Refreshing to see friendly smiling faces that know how to handle all sizes of boats. We will definitely return. Thanks Katie!
Thank you very much for your review and feedback! Katie is an awesome addition to our team, and we are so happy that she was able to help you. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon!

Our 5 year old had an accident (everything ended up being ok :) leaving Trippe Creek and we needed to find a marina and get to the hospital in Easton. I called Brewers and Jeff was so sweet and helpful. He immediately got us a slip, was there to help us dock and make sure we were OK. He brought ice for my daughter's arm and even had Annie (who is awesome and always has a smile) drive us to Easton AND pick us up several hours later. I can't say enough about how kind and professional everyone was. Yes the bathhouse is AWESOME and the pool view is one of the best on the Bay, but it was the staff who made it truly 5 star. Thanks Brewers!!! We will be back. MS
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review and for staying with us at Oxford Marina! It was truly our pleasure to be able to help you and your family, and we are happy that your daughter is doing well. Please do come back and stay with us again! We look forward to your next visit.

Once again, very pleasant stay at one of our favorite marinas on the Bay. Everything from making reservations on Dockwa to accommodating the dockage we wanted next to our cruising companions, and help docking worked out perfectly. Beautiful new showers, restrooms and social lounge are icing on the cake. Also, great area to walk the dogs! Our thanks to everyone from Graham to Jeff and Jay for making the whole experience a perfect one.

Enjoyed 3 days in Oxford. Marina and boatyard were spotless. Dockhands and Samantha most professional and friendly. Jeff was very helpful to all our needs. The boathouse and shower facilities were the most luxurious I have seen . Like being in your own bathroom, only cleaner and larger.
I would have loved to use their grills and outdoor pool but the restaurants in town were too good.
Rent a bike and cycle to St. Michaels!

We have stayed at Brewers many times, and it is our favorite marina on the Chesapeake. The staff is friendly and helpful, the wifi actually works and the pool is a refreshing treat after a long day on the water. The new bathhouse, lounge and laundry facility are amazing.

Delightful experience from beginning to end. We were there during the scorching hot July 4th weekend which meant a lot of lounging by the pool (great view of incoming boats). There is a new, beautiful structure which includes bath rooms and a common room. The bath rooms are worthy of a 5 star hotel - roomy, clean, luxurious. The common room is elegant, spacious with gorgeous views, comfortable furniture and flat screen. There are bikes for rent to explore Oxford. But the best part is the staff. Friendly, courteous, efficient, accommodating. From the manager to the dock staff - everyone was so nice! I hope to see all of them when we return in the Fall.

Wasn't aware that Mears was under new ownership and management. Had a hard time trying to make a reservation, since now everything has to go through Dockwa. So, just showed up and hoped they would have space. Pleasantly surprised by staff and new, improved facilities. Actually, new bath house was almost too opulent, but we can't complain. Very clean, comfortable and a welcome place to hang out during two days of rain. Everything was great, except reservation system. Why can't they just take a phone call?
