The marina is in a great location to explore the quiet side of Mount Desert Island. All the staff was attentive and professional. Dock master Micah was very helpful with providing internet access and initial tie up. We are already looking forward to staying with them again in the near future. MV Ocean Echo

The marina and crew at the marina are the best and friendliest. They truly make you feel like one of the family. Thank you for top-notch season.

I usually get the same slip each year, but this year I was assigned a new slip sharing with a humongous sail boat that made docking difficult.

Dysart's was the perfect spot for my trip to Mount Desert Island. The staff was capable, helpful and hospitable. The amenities were clean and the attitude and atmosphere were relaxed, as it should be in Maine. I will return to South West Harbor again and most certainly choose Dysart's.

Easy access, great dock master, clear instructions. Marina the dog was cute as can be. They even have a pick up truck you can use if you need to go for supplies anywhere!

Southwest Harbor is a non-nonsense working town, and Dysart's Great Harbor Marina serves both lobstermen and cruisers well. The infrastructure is fine, Mika, the Dockmaster is very nice and helpful. There are clean showers and laundry facilities. Visitors can borrow a truck to provision. There's a West Marine, a few restaurants and shops within walking distance.

As always, a great place to dock for a few days.

Can't help but think the marina staff look down on pleasure boaters. It's a shame as we support the local businesses and restaurants. Good news is that Dysarts is now on Dockwa which avoids unanswered phone calls and emails in the past when trying to get a reservation. We gave them a second try but will not be back.
Marina Response:
Sorry to hear that you felt looked down upon, I can assure you that none of the staff here look down on pleasure boaters as they are our primary customers in the summertime. We do our best to answer phone calls, made easier by having dockwa. Would be interested in hearing more details about your experience with us if you would like to call (207 244 0117), email ([email protected]), or message through Dockwa.

Great place. Clean large showers and laundry room, helpful, courteous and efficient administration. Also, it's within walking distance of a cute town and the Island Explorer will stop at the marina along the main road. Biggest plus a loaner truck available.

Dysart’s is always great but last night we were kept awake by the yacht Viaggio by very loud music and conversation that went on for hours. My husband and another person went over at 10:30 and nicely asked them to keep it down or move inside. They continued on until finally things quieted down around 11:00. Left a bad taste, no consideration for those around them.
