SH Old Port Cove is a gem! The marina & facilities are will thought out and kept spotless. The staff could not have been nicer, and the resturant (Belles) was fantastic. We're sorry we missed the live music but we'll be back! Great job!

Very pleasant overnight stay at Old Port Cove. Dock hands provided excellent assistance in getting us docked with some wind. The floating docks are wide and in excellent condition. The fairways were generous to allow for easier maneuverability.

The facilities such as cruiser’s lounge, fitness center were very nice and staff were helpful and friendly! Great walking area and some shops and West Marine in walking distance.

GREAT STAFF. Beautiful marina, terrific location. Another great stay.

We just wanted to add our voices to the very positive reviews for Safe Harbor Old Port Cove. We were coming down the ICW and weather was coming with 25-35 knots of wind. We had a light anchor and were worried that we would drag. I called on the phone (it was answered immediately, unlike many other marinas) because we have had very positive experiences at other Safe Harbors. We explained our issues with the weather and anchor and they squeezed us in despite the busy dates/high season (it was also at the very end of the business day). What a relief!!! We called on the radio and was given explicit instructions for approach and was told that there would definitely be someone at the docks to help us tie up - the wind was now starting to really blow. Entering this marina with the staff waiting truly made us feel like we were entering a "safe harbor"! The docks are unique in that there are adjustable cleats - within minutes they were moved to accommodate our catamaran and, just as fast, our power was on and water was close. When we walked to check in, Suzy was so welcoming and helpful, supplying us with information about the marina and area, and then we were lucky enough to be gifted with a lovely bottle of wine. She went above and beyond to help us out. The marina is very well maintained with very nice, clean showers and bathrooms, and we were on floating docks. We looked at the facilities and they are exceptional: a gym with a great selection of equipment, a lounge with a pool table and seating/relaxing area, and also a nice restaurant on the premises. The property is in a gated community so security is not an issue. There are several high rise apartment buildings around but we saw that as a bonus - more wind blocking - they did not interfere with the lovely view. It was a short walk (~ 10 minutes) to a Publix and West Marine, as well as restaurants. We were also the same short walk away from an Enterprise car rental facility. We rented a car for 24 hours and did provisioning and many errands in preparation for crossing to the Bahamas. This marina is likely one of the nicest and well-managed we have been at. We want to add a very special thank-you to Suzy who squeezed us in during the heavy weather.

The Staff, facilities, restaurant, and boat owners make Old Port Cove one of the best marinas I've stayed at. The management and incredible staff ensured the conditions were set for us to enjoy our time even when they were closed for the holidays. Incredibly professional and friendly.

Super friendly helpful staff. Beautiful marina!

by Allen E. - Verified user on Nov 25, 2022
The most enjoyable two nights at this beautiful and very well-managed marina. If I could have, I would have given it ten stars. Thank you, Suzy, to you and your staff for your warm hospitality and for contributing to our Thanksgiving experience.

by John C. - Verified user on Oct 05, 2022
As always it was a great stay. Only reason for four stars is we had no shore power. Luckily we have a large solar bank and had no problems till morning

by Sergio C. - Verified user on Sep 23, 2022
Nick and Suzy were AMAZING. From the time we were making reservations we were treated like royalty! They quickly gave us directions to our dock and Adam was already there to help us tie up with all kinds of great local information in a folder and A COMPLIMENTARY BOTTLE OF WINE!!! We have never received this treatment at any marina. Their facilities are modern and gorgeous, with a top notch gym and a BEAURIFUL crew lounge with its very own pool table. They have a great restaurant by the docks.. and all the floating docks look brand new. Old Port Cove and Safe Harbor Marinas are a class act.. all their permanent slips are taken but we loved it so much that we got ourselves on their waiting list - we would LOVE to call this gem if a marina our new home!!

Very friendly staff! Excellent facilities.

by Douglas G. - Verified user on Jul 27, 2022
From our first communication with Old Port Cove right up to our leaving everyone was very welcoming and helpful. Suzy Chadderdon in the front office went above and beyond--she is exceptional, and she and Kip (on the docks) are real assets to the marina.

by Elton K. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2022
Excellent stay. Very nice marina with excellent facilities. Made reservation via Dockwa with no issues. Nick, the deckhand who assisted us was superb … from fueling us up, to guiding us into our slip, to taking our trash, and checking us in. If we ever have the opportunity again, we will be back.

by Rochelle L. - Verified user on Jun 22, 2022
Hope to be back, one of the nicer marinas we’ve stayed at. Easy in and out, great staff, great location!

It would have been great but wasn't informed that the restaurant was not open.

by Tamara P. - Verified user on May 19, 2022
Love Adam and Susie! Very personable and helpful. Adam came out to greet us and took great care of us until we were settled. Susie handled the office and was super accommodating! The club where the pool was wasn't so friendly. They let us in and within 20 minutes kicked us out, said pool was for swim lessons. We didn't know the pool hours, the same girl never said a word and she knew we were from the marina. She waited until we bought food and drinks then anxiously kicked us out. We were off to the side not hurting a thing. The hours need to be displayed at the marina and the entrance to club pool. We spent good Uber money to get there and back. Very disappointed! Everything else was perfect!

by Kirk C. - Verified user on Apr 28, 2022
As all Safe Harbor marinas I've stayed cat lately, it was a little pricey, but a very good Marina. Restrooms, showers and laundry are top notch. Fitness also very nice. Floating docks all in good shape. Staff was friendly and helpful.

by Tom B. on Apr 26, 2022
very accommodating dockhands and office staff very professional

Extremely nice place with very friendly and helpful staff. Our boat was 1/3 the size of most vessels there, but staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and treated us like the big boys. Convenient to golf and supplies will try to stay here every time we pass by.

by Adrian I. - Verified user on Apr 03, 2022
Forced off waterway by storm and an engine issue. Pleasant, helpful, and secure night on the T-dock

by Scott o. on Mar 28, 2022
Great facility, easy to get into, dock master answered radio and gave good direction to the slip. Help was waiting at the slip to back into slip. Water and electric were easily accessible. We then checked in with a very friendly attentive lady I think Sally she gave us an informative packet and a bottle of wine ! And a very useful tip to get to the restaurant early to get a seat as it was sold out do to Wednesday live music. Easy Uber ride to downtown and the boat show. We already plan to come back probably in April . Thanks Scott. Motor Yacht Ogunquit.

Well run, clean & responsive staff. Very secure.

by Caroline H. on Mar 19, 2022
Great facilities. We were only there for one night, we got in after hours so we didn’t have any help with dock lines.. we specifically asked for clarification if it would be a port or starboard tie down. They gave us incorrect info. Maybe a communication error or the person on the phone doesn’t really know their dock as well as they could. Restaurant was good and service was great. Very well kept facility. Will keep it on our list of places for next year. And stay longer to take advantage of the great amenities

Beautiful setting, great facilities, attentive staff. The wonderful Belle Cafe restaurant is on site. Best of all, we received the best directions in 14 months of cruising for marina approach and slip by one of the three ladies in the office. Much appreciated. And thank you for the California wine!

by Danny G. - Verified user on Jan 24, 2022
The dock hands and the folks at the check in desk are professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. They always make it at pleasure staying there. Only complaint I have is the filet Migon was discontinued on the restaurant menu. I always s enjoyed it.

Unfortunately there’s only a 5 star option for Old Port Cove. Everything here is 1st class. Everyone was extremely friendly, and even had time to meet many of the local boaters. The facilities are top notch, and the scenery is amazing.

Great help docking by staff to assist me, the captain, with my wife not being able to do the lines because of a recent hip replacement. The Resturant was also very good for dinner. Looking forward to the completion of renovations.

A wonderful place. Everyone was extremely helpful, particularly Mark and Suzy in the office. The bathrooms and laundry were being remodeled so the office handled sending my laundry out, free of charge. It was most helpful since we were busy provisioning and selling and buying a dinghy. Beautiful area

“First class” Marina. Accommodating staff, great....water, power, pump out ease. Nice restaurant/bar conveniently located next door. Nearby West Marine, Doris’s Italian market & Sara’s Kitchen (breakfast).

by Kenneth M. - Verified user on Apr 08, 2021
Outstanding First class Would highly recommend this marina to anybody that’s looking

by Daniel S. on Apr 02, 2021
We love this marina. It is in a private community so there are no gates on each dock. The staff is awesome and attentive. My wife often spends weeks at a time alone on our boat and she feels super safe and comfortable. Floating docks are a big plus and an pristine BBQ is a real asset.

by Timothy M. on Mar 18, 2021
Very high end, brand new facility with floating docks, and helpful staff. Squeezed us in despite the busy dates. Very nice restaurant/bar on site with a short walk (10 minutest) to the local (offsite) commercial district that includes restaurants, publix, west marine, and other shops. Very safe and protected area.

by Ed M. - Verified user on Mar 11, 2021
Likely the finest marina we have ever stayed at. Professional friendly staff, new facilities and the best customer service

by Rob K. - Verified user on Mar 04, 2021
First class marina and dockage. Worth the higher price.

by Todd R. on Feb 23, 2021
We love OPC and all the folks there. Everyone goes out of their way to offer help, whether at the fuel dock, on the VHF, or giving a hand with lines coming and going. It’s safe, quiet, and full of friendly people. We always enjoy out time there. Thanks to the entire OPC Team! You make us feel like OPC Family. We are thankful.

Easy in and out. Well organized. Hail once and they respond. Had my slip assigned 4 hours before I arrived. Dock hands know what they’re doing. Pleasant surroundings and everything you could want within walking distance—restaurants, West Marine and Publix!

by Douglas S. on Dec 06, 2020
Really nice place to stay. Very efficient reservation with Dockwa, good communication both before and after our stay. Staff was nice, efficient, and knew what they were doing. Sad that this is unusual for a Marina these days, but good to have one that works. And believe it or not, when you call - they answer the phone.

Nice marina. Very helpful staff. Could not be better.

I would think twice before bringing my large yacht back there. Customer service is under par. Dock staff are wonderful, but do not ask the office for anything, otherwise you will undergo the wrath of grouchy McGrouchy lady.

Very clean, pretty-well-protected marina. Very helpful staff. Floating docks with movable cleats, diesel (not gasoline), pump out in slips, good restaurant (but closed for Covid-19 as of this writing). We came up for a just couple of nights from Palm Beach, only a few miles away, but marina is close to AICW, for those in transit.

Thank you for the review. It was great having you here in the marina and look forward to seeing you in the future.

by Robert I. on Mar 10, 2020
Awesome! I must say probably the most helpful, friendliest, most accommodating marina we have visited. The restrooms were immaculate, as was the laundry and captain's lounge. Belle's is a nice bar and grill on the premise. The dock hands bent over backward to assist us. Most importantly, a special shoutout to Suzy to made sure we had a place to moore during some heavy weather. I hope you are lucky enough to stay at the fabulous marina!

Thank you for the great review!

by Ted D. on Dec 09, 2019
Arguably one of the nicest, most convenient marinas in Florida. Sorry to say, that since ownership change to Safe Harbor, friendliness has disappeared. We called directly for reservations inquiry. Told to book on Dockwa, which takes 24 hrs to confirm space. Rates are highest in the area. We made reservations, called in on VHF upon approach, no answer, no dock help. Seems that the emphasis has gone to long term, mega and super yacht business. Courtesy van discontinued and convenience store closed for bigger marina offices
Marina Response:
Southernstar, We apologize for the loss of friendliness you felt with your last stay. This is one of the main things that we focus on here at Old Port cove and all over our Safe Harbor Marinas. We are in the middle of transitioning from our old office to our new office and are still working out the kinks with our VHF and phone communication. We did have to eliminate the convenience store to do so, but this was for the best interests in mind for our guests. We needed more space for packages and to be able to upgrade our property. We still provide a courtesy van for our guests but at certain times during the day (10am-2pm). Please feel free to reach out to me Directly so I can make this better.

Thank you for the review, We are about to open our new restaurant and the hours will be longer. We are in the process of changing over and unfortunately our hours had to be shortened in order to make the change speedier. We look forward to seeing you in our new restaurant, Belle's Bar and Grill.
