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.

Very nice marina. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Short walk into town. We would go again.

Marcus and Amber were great, always happy to help! Marcus the Dockmaster was right there to help me dock Blue Dancer on the side dock, between 2 boats. I single hand my 34 foot sailboat, having Marcus meet me was wonderful. Again, Marcus was there to push her off the dock when I was leaving. I had a wonderful stay and the use of their courtesy vehicle, so helpful to get provisions. I filled up with water and fuel. And gave Blue Dancer a much need bath. I will be coming back in the future.

This place is wonderful. Micah and Amanda were cheerful and helpful. The assistance at the dock is unparalleled anywhere!

Mixed review : Bathrooms were great and they were very generous in lending us a vehicle . There was a disgusting mess by their dumpster , however, with garbage all over the parking lot . Also a dinghy with a very dirty bottom consisting of lots of marine growth ( muscles) was left on the fuel dock smelling y up the place and attracting sea gulls .
Marina Response:
Sorry to hear you didn't love all of your stay with us. We did pick up the trash that blew out over the night. It is unknown whose dinghy it is but it will be going to the dump on Monday but it is closed over the weekend. We hope you come back and have a 5 star experience next time.

Great Marina with even better staff and hospitality

by Audrey M. - Verified user on May 12, 2023
Dysart’s was absolutely wonderful. The people were so friendly, inviting, and extremely helpful. The facilities were clean, simple, and exactly what we needed. We felt like we were family. We will definitely be coming back to Dysart’s for another few nights staying on the sailboat in a slip!

Excellent marina staff; friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable of local area. We have been seasonal guests here for years and plan to return each season. The breakwater has recently been expanded and the south side approach has been dredged. The adjacent commercial dock is interesting as it provides a view into the past where many such ports in Maine were built around the fishing industry. The shower and laundry area is simple but adequate. Town is but a short walk away and there is a free bus service to Bar Harbor and beyond
