The BEST experience! This place is first class all the way from beginning to end. Their cancellation policy is much better than competitors. We were helped by Dave, Liam, Peter and Hannah who were all outstanding. Having a loaner car made our lives much easier and helped us enjoy Portland.
Thank you Sally! I am sorry for the late response but we wish you a great holiday season and fair winds next year!!

I came in to get out of rough waters and impending thunderstorm. These guys not only took me in, they went out of their way to make my stay as easy as possible. Possible. Every single person I met was super nice and helpful. The marina facilities are awesome, and they're right in South Portland. I can't recommend this marina enough.
Any port in a storm but why not make it a great port! I believe that maybe a direct quote from you... I am glad we met your expectations and were there when needed!

Nice folks, super clean docks and facilities. Easy in and out. Good walking trail nearby, friendly bar and grill 5 minutes on foot, fancier restaurant right at the marina.
Thank you for wording your review perfectly! Concise, to the point, and very informative! We hope to see you again soon!

Dock crew were very helpful and always available. Nice new docks and facilities. It was our second time visiting while stoping in Portland in route north or south.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the business and the kindness you have shown! Enjoy your travels!

Great location, staff, on-site restaurant, laundry and courtesy car to provision.
Thank you for the review! We are usually going for a trifecta of positive things but you happened to give us a postive pentafecta review, inclusive of the attributes and stars! Hope to host you again!

Always great stays at Spring Point. Peter and crew are fantastic!
Thank you very much for your stay and review! You have always been one to greet us and leave us with kind words and well wishes! That helps us immensly!

I never take the time to setup a user name and password to write reviews but Peter & his staff were so accommodating and helpful that I did. I wish I could give them 1000 stars. We are moving aboard our boat from land life and Peter set us up on a dock location that made moving household items so easy. He greeted us with a lovely welcome bag & could not be nicer. Thank you so much! We will be back in New England next season and will definitely make this a stop.
Hi and thanks for the honesty! I myself am not much of a reviewer which makes us appreciate people like yourself taking the time to do this! We hope you enjoy another round of living and traveling aboard your boat!

Peter and his team at Spring Point Marina are exceptional! We first saw the marina in the Waterway Guide but we were concerned about depth. A quick call to Peter confirmed that indeed, they did have the depth to accommodate our 6.5 foot draft. When we mentioned to Peter that we might need to find a ride down to Logan Airport in Boston (over 2 hours away) Peter quickly added that they could help us. SO GREAT! We spent 9 days with the team at Spring Point Marina, which included a quick trip home to the west coast to check on things. And Peter's team did indeed drive us to Boston. AMAZING! Our boat is a heavy Nordhavn trawler and Peter arranged for us to be in a sturdy inside slip, which was terrific. We also used the marina's courtesy car to go to the grocery store and reprovision for our next month's travels - so very appreciated! We didn't eat at the restaurant onsite but it looked terrific. The location in South Portland is walkable to a few restaurants and is a $9 Uber ride to downtown. Or use the courtesy car! Even better! While we were gone the team kept a sharp eye on our boat, and we felt comfortable knowing that this group of knowledgeable, friendly people were watching out for us. Overall, an incredible experience, with awesome people and a great marina. We will be back!
Thank you for the very kind, generous, and thorough review! You two were wonderful to have around the marina and we truly enjoyed your kindness and joy! We look forward to hosting again!

Awesome place, great team, highly proffesional. I will be back, great place for a stop over for transients.
Thank you for the kind review! We do like being a stop over place and helping with customer needs!

Excellent! Incredibly nice and helpful staff. Great rate on the slip with free electric, wifi, access to cars for shopping, reasonable price on diesel. We decided to stay an extra day!
Thank you very much! We like to have fun while doing our work and we appreciate you being a big part of this! Enjoy your cruise!

This is fantstic marina. The staff were friendly, professional, and they went out of their way to assist me. The location is excellent and well protected, one of the most peaceful, calm docks I have stayed at during my voyage from Long Island to Maine. There is also a beautiful bistro on-site with stunning views of Portland and the harbor. It was a most enjoyable experience.
Thank you for the great review and kind words! North 43 Bistro is a cool place with a menu that is always changing with something for everyone. The operators take immense pride in their culinary art and it shows! Reviews like this truly make the day to day all worth it! Enjoy!

Due to emergency medical appointments, we needed to be in the Portland, ME area. In our search, we came upon Spring Point Marina. Boy were we lucky to have found this place. The Dockmaster, Peter, and the marina staff were awesome—very efficient and professional. Not only were the amenities great (the wifi could be a bit more stable), Peter was so easy to work with and understanding of our medical and veterinary needs. The marina’s courtesy car made our lives as transients so much more stress free for our appointments. The boating community at the marina also made us feel like we’re part of their “family”. We will definitely be back to this marina the next time we are in Maine.
We wish life didn't "happen" while out enjoying ourselves boating but it does and we are happy we could be here for you to lend a hand. It's a family around here! We hope to see you again!

This was our second season staying at spring point and as always, Pete and the marina staff were fantastic and the facilities are first rate. Have referred our friends as well. We will be back next season
Stayed 3 days

Awesome news! We are happy to hear that you were able to get around when needed, though we are not the closest spot to all of the shopping we try to make that as accessible as possible! We look forward to having you again!

Excellent Marina and staff!
One of the best reviews yet! Thank you for the honesty!

Our absolute favorite stop in Maine! Thank you to Pete and his staff for all the accommodations. The courtesy car was a game changer. The facilities were very clean and private. The full-service fuel dock with complimentary pump outs, as well as the boathouse with beer for sale, was always staffed with helpful marina crew. We will be sure to tell anyone heading into Maine that Spring Point Marina in South Portland is a must-stop destination!
P.S. There are two delicious places to check out right around the corner. El Corazón Casita is an authentic Mexican restaurant with the best California burrito you can find in Maine. Spring Point Tavern is the perfect hangout spot for reasonably priced drinks and great bar food. Both places are dog-friendly with shaded backyard patios.
Thank you for the awesome review! It really means a lot to us to have you take the time to write this review while traveling the coast on your honeymoon! Enjoy the rest of your adventures and we hope to see you again!

Wow, what a marina! Very easy to get in and out and the closest marina to the mouth pof Portland harbor. Very modern docks and facilities. Harbormaster was very attentive and helpful on arrival. They can even provide a loaner car!
Bath/shower/laundry facilities are great, but a looooong way from the end docks. Marina is not walking distance to stores, but there is that loaner car. On premises marine supply was closed the entire time we were at the marina. On premises restaurant looked nice (didn't try it).
We had an issue with shore power. The circuit breaker on the outlet tripped causing an alarm. The marina staff were unresponsive in getting to it.
Greetings and thank you for the generous response! I apologize for the lack of attention when it came to that noise from the power pedestal. If there was a communication break down we wish for it to not happen again. If you care to elaborate on the circuit breaker situation please email me at [email protected]
. We are always willing to listen and learn to help improve our customers enjoyment of our facility! We take pride in being attentive and if we were not for any reason our apologies! We hope to host you again and are happy to try and accommodate any requests even providing the loaner car!

I could not possibly do justice to the level of service we received here. We were staying as transients near the end of the season when word came that a big storm was incoming. Peter reached out to us to warn me about it and helped me get the boat to safety. He even went so far as to send Josh, one of his employees, with me over to Portland Yacht Services to make the transfer easier. I don't think I've ever seen someone go so far above and beyond to help.
Hello! In a similar way to you I cannot give your review the correct response ever besides thank you! We have been there and when a known issue is in sight we want to communicate that as quickly as possible for the comfort and safety of all of our guests. Though are facility is protected from the open ocean, especially with our newest dock system sitting in front of the marina, those darn nor’easters can sometimes make us spin on our heads! Again we appreciate the kind words and hope you have a wonderful winter!

This was easy to get in and out of, and the dock staff is terrific. Pete and the team are very nice and everybody is on a first name basis here. Let me borrow a car to go to town and get things I needed. I will definitely come back, terrific place nice people
Hello and thanks for the amazing review! We are trying to channel "Cheers"! Hope to host you again and have a great winter if we don't see you before that!

Dockmaster is extremely helpful. Would have been 5 stars if not for the rolling. Marina is subject to a lot of wakes.
Thank you very much for the review! We do get wakes into the marina from the traffic in the main channel... its unfortunate but all slips are bow or stern to the boat traffic unless you are on our face dock. We only put larger vessels or catamarans on that dock if we are full in other places and I try to discuss the wake with all vessels that will be staying there! In other news we have just received our shipment of new docks which will extend the marina by another run and no boats will need to be on the face dock once this major expansion is complete! Sorry for the long response but we are excited for this new phase of the marina and we look forward to providing a better ride for everyone! Again thank you very much for the review and we hope to host you again!!!
