I really enjoyed staying at Safe Harbor Jefferson Beach. It was the biggest marina we had ever stayed at. The people on the other boats were really nice too. I was looking forward to using the fitness center, but it was closed due to COVID. Showers were clean, and laundry room was nice, with multiple machines. The laundry room was a little bit of a walk from our slip, but they have carts to carry things around. We really liked going to Watermark restaurant for dinner.

Great dock crew at the fuel dock and check-in. Pam was great with follow-up and accommodating to getting us a slip. Always a favorable experience at JBM!

It was wonderful! Bathrooms and laundry rooms were spacious, nicely done, and clean. Close to restaurants and stores. The marine was quite at night. Moorage was reasonable!

From the moment we contacted Jefferson Beach for dockage, until we departed, Semo Post and his staff gave outstanding service. Semo went out of his way to make sure we had a slip, then sent associates over to give us important information and to make sure all was well. Semo helped with arrangements for our dining at the Watermark, and made our anniversary special. The next morning Semo called to make sure we knew that we could stay as long as necessary to wait out the storms in the area. We highly recommend this marina for the convenient location, the quality of the marina, and especially the care they give. Sue and Al Sutton 8-25-20

Nice laundry, bathrooms, and fuel dock. Fuel prices a little high. Docks ok with the high water.

Very nice marina. Well run and maintained. Very clean too. It is maintained to a high standard. I feel they really make great efforts to make sure you stay is pleasant. Only negative comment is that the marina is so big you can end up far from restrooms and showers.

Great marina, showers and bath house are super clean and have recently been remodeled. Everyone was very helpful.

We had a fantastic stay at Safe Harbor Jefferson Beach Marina! Beautiful spot on St. Claire Shores with easy access from the lake and gorgeous sunsets. Semo was very helpful with immediate responses via the dockwa app and availability by phone. Thanks Semo! Watermark restaurant on site had delicious food. We’ll be back!

Absolutely the best marina staff ever. I launched a new to me yacht at JBM and became a transient guest there for 3 weeks while working out the kinks in the new boat. Semo and his team treated us like royalty. They delivered packages to us to save us having to stop by the office, the service staff was efficient and clean, the gas dock was well staffed and very helpful, the marina manager was always willing to take my call and provide me with local knowledge. All in all this was the best marina experience I have had in 15 years.

Fine, easy to get in. Nice young man to assist. Wish we could go to Mike's restaurant without hiking all the way to Jefferson and back in!

Was told to tie up at fuel dock just to get a slip assignment, twice. First slip was too small. Fuel dock was very busy. The docks do not have cleats so the dock help took 15 minutes, each time, to tie us up. They were inexperienced. Second slip was next to a wall of covered slips, so we had no view in that direction. Also had a loud water pump, of some kind, in our slip running intermittently. It took more than an hour to get tied up in our slip. We were across from Brownies Restaurant/Bar which attracts loud, go fast boats. A constant parade of boats. We were told that the dock master had quit and the staff was not trained.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us at Safe Harbor Jefferson Beach. We apologize that you were not happy with the transient slips that we had available over Labor Day Weekend. Holiday weekends at the marina tend to be very busy and more active, and we would be happy to welcome you back and get you a better slip assignment next time you are in the area. Please feel free to reach out to our marina office, and the GM would be happy to address your concerns. We sincerely appreciate customer feedback and are dedicated to providing a great experience each time you visit us.

Very clean and organized. Good docks. Only wish they had a pool.

The marina was clean, shower houses were nice, air conditioned and clean. Marina staff we dealt with were very nice and helpful. The problem was while we were there the marina was have issues with high water. They couldn't do anything about that but where they had us docked was on the wrong side of about a 50 yard long section of driveway that was under water. The trouble was any time we wanted to leave our dock to go to a restaurant, or shopping or anything, we had to wade thru this high water. Plus the dock was a long walk from either one of the shower houses, and, again, to get to the one we had to walk thru the water. To get to the marina store for ice was even further, it was a good 15 minute walk. When it really annoyed me was the day we did walk to the marina store for ice and found there were plenty of empty docks within a couple minutes walk of both the store and one of the shower houses, and we would not have had to walk thru the water. The person who assigned us our dock was well aware we were transients, that we did not have a car and had to walk thru the water to get anywhere and yet stuck us over there anyway. Jefferson Beach has been the most expensive marina so far on our trip and the most inconvenient. Probably the only way we'd go back is if they can promise us in advance that we'd be docked in a more convenient location.
Marina Response:
We are extremely sorry for the inconvenient slip assignment and high water issues. We would love to have the opportunity to make this up to you. Please give us a call at 586-778-7600 ext. 3434 to discuss. Look forward to hearing from you soon!
