Stayed over June 8th. First impressions were very favorable, from the well kept docks to the amazingly wide fairways- no « tight marina «  willies here. Our dockhand, Campbell, was knowledgeable and efficient. The facilities were splendid great pool (and pool bar), bathhouse, etc. Great location for Tiki bar access.

We’ve been to Zahniser’s many times. Always good. Dock hands could use a little additional training.

Dave, the Dockmaster, was the best! He was the epitome of calm, cool and capable as he brought us into our slip. His other crew were excellent too. We appreciated how gracious everyone was and the facilities were top notch! We had a lovely dinner at the Italian restaurant on site. Overall is was a great experience and we look forward to our future visits.

This is our third time staying with Safe Harbor Zahnisers. It has so much to offer, loaner bicycles, shuttle car, beautiful pool, bathrooms are super clean and staff is awesome!!! Annual slip holders are very welcoming so much that we were invited to their potluck supper. Short walk into town and great restaurant on site too!

The mooring never moved

We took our first boat trip of the year to Safe Harbor Zahnisers (from home port of Safe Harbor Oxford.) We were blown away with the top-notch facilities and matching attentive and friendly staff. Exceptional stay all around. My wife, 5 yr. old daughter and I had plenty to do in the surrounding beautiful community of Solomons. The food and surroundings at the on site restaurant can't be beat. We barely scratched the surface in the four days we were there. Would recommend this marina as a 'must' destination on the Bay.

The crew at S.H. Zahnisers is five stars. Jim Pickett has the place ship shape and has selected a great group of people to help run the marina. Jim always answers promptly in a professional and kind way. Dock master Dave is super and has a great group the working the docks. Dock are always well cared for and in perfect condition. Jasmin in the front office is forever helpful and cheerful and giving first rate service. Thank you to the great crew at S.H. Zahnisers!

Wonderful marina and staff. Campbell and Mia were at the docks to assist even after 5:00 on a holiday weekend. Facilities are super nice, and the marina and town have a warm, welcoming vibe. Highly recommend!!

One of our favorite marinas! Great, clean facilities. Friendly, extremely helpful folks. We always enjoy a meal at the Dry Dock. They have bicycles to use and and they’ll shuttle you to a grocery store if needed

It has been years since we visited Solomons. Our home port is at Safe Harbor Stingray Point in Deltaville, VA. Safe Harbors reciprocal arrangement made staying at Zahnisers a no brainer. This is a beautiful marina. It is clear from walking around the premises that significant capital investment has been made recently. The bathrooms and showers are some of the most beautiful and clean that I have ever seen. The onsite Italian restaurant is very good and a real plus for the marina. We used their bikes and had a ball. The floating docks were very nice and well maintained.

Zahnisers is a well maintained marina, in a great location, with lots of amenities with a helpful and friendly staff. The on-site Italian restaurant is awesome.

Beautiful facilities-clean private bathrooms w/showers, free use of washers & dryers, captains lounge w/tv and coffee. La Vela Italian restaurant on site, walking distance to shops, cafes, other restaurants. Free shuttle service to grocery store. Very friendly helpful staff- a real gem!

Great Marina, one of the nicest we have been to. Super nice facilities, free laundry, multiple shower rooms, 5 star restaurant and great staff! We will be back!

by Roger T. - Verified user on May 11, 2024
First class facilities! My only suggestion would be a second shower in the bath house… maybe there was another one that I missed somewhere… but this is not a negative, just a suggestion. Enjoyed the stay!

Lovely marina that is well managed. Bathrooms and laundry very clean. Shuttle to grocery was great; driver waited for us so no waiting time for his return. Everyone friendly. Location good for short walk or bike ride to town to enjoy many restaurants.

AMAZING! Traveling The Great Loop-we’ve gone 6,000 miles and Safe Harbor Zahnisers is the best marina yet!! It starts with the fabulous staff, impeccable grounds, gorgeous bath house and laundry. We loved the free bikes, close to the adorable Maritime Museum and Pier. We didn’t eat at La Vela they were closed when we were there-it has an excellent reputation!
