Be it that I used to manage and live at Chicks- I'm a little bit of a biased audience BUT Chicks is a very special place: If you're a transient vessel and you want to experience Kennebunkport (my hometown), Chicks is the best way to do it! They're home to the largest and deepest capacity slips and they're the ONLY fuel dock in town! The dockmaster, Tyler, is super helpful and the dockhand staff (especially Henry, Adam and Schuyler) are top notch... I'm so grateful for my time at Chicks and many of those customers I met there have become lifelong friends!

Beautiful location close to town. Price high and strict no refund policy and no pump out service. Staff was nice and beautiful area.

Tyler and Adam as well as Rudder were great, very help full. Great local, reasonable fuel and clean.

Great stay! Staff was exelent, they were standing at the peir waiting for me to pull in. Kennebunk river was easier than expected to navigate. Short walk to town. Can't believe how helpful and atentive the staff was, they treated me as if i pulled in on one of the Hinkleys they had tied up, despite the contrary. Will be back next year.

As always, the staff could not have been nicer...they were always available to assist, with any of our needs...it is without a doubt a marina that we will continue revisiting!

A wonderful spot with a friendly and delightful staff. We have enjoyed our stay

We had a wonderful stay. Very knowledgeable staff. Great location with a short walk to town.

This marina was a bit on the pricy side, but the service was top notch, the facilities were clean, and the staff was friendly. I would definitely return.
We acknowledge that Chicks Marina is not the least expensive place to stay in Kennebunkport, however our crew takes great pride in providing the finest transient facilities in town. Thank you Valerian for your kind words and for visiting us!

Sailing to Chick's from Perkins Cove for the first time was a perfect day. The Chick's crew waved us in as we approached the dock, helped us secure our lines given the swift current, and was extremely helpful during our short stay. Making the arrangements via Dockwa was very efficient. Surrounded by Hinkley's impressed my crew. Everything at Chick's is perfectly maintained. Well done!

First time at Chicks and definitely not the last. We stayed two separate nights and it felt like we were returning home. Charlotte and her team are first class. We truly appreciated the pre arrival information, the smiling faces that welcomed us and the follow up once we left. Facilities were clean, and the coffee and muffins a treat. Thank you - Blue Horizons

The facilities are nice but the people are even nicer. Great place to visit
by dastrau on Jul 21, 2019
The staff at Chick's, as well as its location make this a wonderful destination or stopover. They couldn't be nicer or more helpful --- prior to arrival, while docking or refueling at docks that already have fenders, during the stay, and when departing. We had to leave earlier than planned due to a death in the family, but we will return.
Ahoy Dastrau! The crew here thanks you for your wonderful review! We were sorry to see you depart ahead of schedule and wish you and your family a safe return trip home to your loved ones. We are so sorry for your loss but hope to see you again soon. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us! P.S. So glad you liked the fenders!
by astra2006 on Jul 14, 2019
Every few years we travel from Cape Cod to Down East Maine and always stay at Chick's Marina. It is by far the cleanest and most professionally run marina that we stay at! Always perfect in every way!
Ahoy Astra! Our crew here takes great pride in providing you with the best amenities possible Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to your return trip!

This was our second 4th of July week at Chick’s Marina and it is in a word: stellar. From the incredible pre-arrival contact, follow-up, and personal attention paid to every transient, to the marina manager, Charlotte, dock hands Henry, Tyler, Eric, Jake, Schuyler, and the great marina dogs Sophie and Rudder and all of them. Each and every one sport a smile and a can-do attitude going above and beyond in every way. Coffee, muffins, Whoopi pies, and the coolest marina merchandise around, the place hums like a top. Fuel dock for gas and diesel so convenient and hoses that can reach virtually any slip on the dock. Spot-on radio contact and docking assistance makes your arrival with or without current and at any tide simple and stress free. Thank you gentleman and ladies. They have ice and most of the basic essentials in the small supply store and can get you most anything you may need. Restaurant recommendations, piping hot showers, laundry and excellent fast (even for Netflix) internet and reliable streaming Wi-Fi. Water hoses placed around with great water pressure and nozzles at the ready. You will enjoy watching the big striper right amongst the docks and the fast and courteous golf cart shuttle around town. Even the trex dock material is impeccably clean and all lines neatly coiled all day every day. Secure gates and parking make for a restful nights sleep. We used the clean and new propane grills and enjoyed several sunsets from the Adirondack chairs on the deck overlooking the river. Simply cannot beat the location, amenities, service, and friendly welcome at this marina. We hadn’t planned a second trip from Boston to ME this year, but now we surely will thanks to the high level of service and comfort at Chick’s. Looking forward to next year already. And our guests have already asked to return as well.
Ahoy Alliance crew! We are already missing you on our docks! Thank you for joining us over the Fourth- Your festive decor and smiling faces were a fantastic addition for the holiday! It's been a fun adventure to bring in new brands like Helly Hansen and Sun Bum. Thank you for joining us- Looking forward to having you back here soon!

We have been coming to beautiful Kennebunkport and Chicks Marina every year since 1999. Plenty to see and do in Kennebunkport and Chicks never disappoints. The facility is the best in New England and the crew are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Every year is a memorable, first class experience.
Ahoy Edna Bella- Thank you for the five stars! It's always a pleasure having you and your beautiful boat join us! The team here looks forward to your visit every summer! Hope we get to see your smiling face again before this 2018 season wraps up. Safe Travels!

First class, beautiful, great location, and friendly!
by rabblerouser292 on Nov 19, 2018
Upon my first visit, I was the only sailing vessel in the marina. The dock staff was attentive, the restrooms were clean and their Ship Store had the best branded apparel of any of the large marinas or boatyards I’ve been to. This place has the ability and wherewithal to handle huge boats but still has the feel of a family establishment. I’ll be coming back!
by ctcumbaa on Sep 11, 2018
Friendly staff, very clean and modern facility. Easy walk to town and the best restaurants.
by jsakovits1 on Aug 27, 2018
My wife and I spend the past weekend at Chicks for the first time. Chicks is definitely a five star marina. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, the docks are in great shape, easy access in and out of the marina and the facilities are clean and top notch. The marina has a great store with a nice lounge and patio.
From the marina it is a very short stroll to town where they have great restaurants and shops.
Charlotte and the crew at Chicks made it an outstanding weekend !
John and Nancy Sakovits/Northern Lights
Ahoy Northern Lights, We were delighted to be able to accommodate you and your lovely vessel this season! Thank you for your kind words and friendly smiles! We look forward to your return trip!
by bluehavenri on Aug 24, 2018
Great experience! Beautiful full service facility...especially enjoyed the ships store and the complimentary baked goods and coffee. Provided electric car ride to and from downtown area. Treat yourself to a stay at Chicks Marina!
Thank you for the five stars! We take great pride in our facilities here at Chicks and a grateful for the wonderful relationships we've been able to build with our local vendors. Talula's Bake Shop in town makes a delightful whoopie pie and we're over the moon to be able to provide a tasty and traditional Maine treat to our guests each day! The crew is also glad you enjoyed the GEM electric car- although she tops off at 25mph we still have a blast transporting our guests to and from local destinations! Thank you Blue Haven for staying with us this season- We look forward to your return trip!
by pattiann on Aug 15, 2018
Beautiful spot! Professional staff!
The crew here takes great pride in providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all our boaters. Thank you for the five stars!

If you find yourself traveling to Maine, & you're looking for a great marina to spend time at this summer, please find your way to Chick's Marina, Kennebunkport. Charlotte & her staff will make your stay more of an experience, rather than just a stopover. From the minute you arrive you're greeted with the smiling faces of Skyler & Jake. When you reach the marina office, where Jennifer was to check us in, there are freshly baked "whoopie pies" waiting for you. If you need a ride into town, well, Charlotte will be happy to assist with their electric 6 seater car. If Newport, RI, were just a bit closer, we would certainly make a monthly trip to Chick's. Until next year, thank you, Charlotte & crew, for making our trip to Maine such a warm & wonderful experience!
Best, Capt. Michael, M/Y MISS LIZA
Ahoy MISS LIZA! The crew here at Chicks so enjoyed having you dockside! Although we can't bring our little town of Kennebunkport closer to Newport, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. And hopefully, Jennifer filled you up with enough whoopie pies to tide you over until next season! Thank you for joining us- We look forward to your return trip!
by briant on Jul 31, 2018
Charlotte and her team of deckhands were great. The facilities were were in perfect shape and our first trip to Kennebunkport was very memorable. We will be back again and stay longer next time
Ahoy- Thank you for your five star review! Our crew at Chicks takes great pride in offering our customers the very best boating experience. We are so glad you enjoyed your first trip to our little town of Kennebunkport and look forward to your return trip next season!
by johnd0623 on Jul 22, 2018
Welcoming, attentive, helpful and friendly. Facilities and amenities are excellent. Charlotte, Jake, Tyler, Jennifer and Schuyler were all terrific. Eric personally gave us a ride into town one morning! We will keep going back.
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We've got a great team here in Kennebunkport. This crew is very much looking forward to your return trip!
by mjenkins2 on Jul 13, 2018
First rate all around! Charlotte and the entire dock staff were as helpful and friendly as you could find. The place is immaculate. We’ve stayed elsewhere in Kennebunkport for less money, and Chick’s is better value.
Thank you Sir! We love to take pride in our facilities here at Chicks. I'm very glad you decided to give us a try. Our team looks forward to having you back dockside soon!
by captjason on Jul 05, 2018
Chicks is the best marina in New England. Charlotte and the staff will go above and beyond to accommodate you. State of the art facilities, great ship store, clean restrooms, and out of this world customer service. If there was a sixth star to give, Chicks would get it!
Thank you for your kind words Captain Jason! You'll have to come back and join us again soon- we are making constant improvements!
by giapage on Jun 23, 2018
Chicks Marina is a fabulous marina in Kennebunkport. Charlotte, The GM is wonderful, friendly, engages with the boaters. Charlotte will help to get an answer to any question you might have. The dockhands, in the blue teal shirts, are friendly and go the extra mile to ensure that all needs of their boaters are met. The marina is clean and the facilities are up to date. I highly recommend this marina if you are in the Kennebunkport area. We will see you again.
We always look forward to your visits Captain! It's a pleasure to have GIA on our docks. Thank you for visiting us in Kennebunkport- So glad we were able to get your favorite dock hose back to you safely as well!
