Beautiful cove as you enter Salem and the Marina is wonderful. Everyone was helpful and friendly. There were great restaurants and shops nearby and overall it was a fantastic place to visit.

Great services. However very overpriced. Not all boaters are millionaires

The Good: The staff and facilities were great. We had a good orientation when we arrived and later we had staff adjusting a fender that had dislodged overnight. The lounge was comfortable. Location is nice. Easy walk to downtown. Salem has a lot to offer. The (not so) Good: The transient dock was on the outside of the concrete floating dock. The boat was getting banged around. We would have had a better night on a mooring. I was excited to see that the marina had the concrete barrier dock... sad that I could not benefit. The gate access via smartphone app was only available to one member of the crew. The $2 dryer charged $5 to my card... I have $3 credit somewhere... I didn't in stal the app.

We arrived at Hawthorne Cove at 3:30 and our radio was not working. Called the office, gave our position and explained “no radio”. Dockmaster Dave came out to meet/greet us at the designated spot and led us to our mooring. Dave gave us a rundown of the facilities and the area, all very helpful. When we headed out in our dinghy Dave guided us to the dock. We planned 2 nights but a weather change south forced us to leave after just 1 nite to make our next stops. The facilities here were clean and the mooring was comfortable; really did not want to leave. Big shout out to Dave!
Marina Response:
Very glad you enjoyed your stay. We are glad you enjoyed the mooring and facilities. We are lucky to have Dave here and look forward to seeing you again!

Harbor master Dave met us at the entrance to the mooring field, escorted us to our spot, provided instructions for the facility and how to get into town. He even escorted us to the dinghy dock. Super helpful nice guy. The facilities were clean and accessible. We had a comfortable night and enjoyed seeing Salem.
Marina Response:
Hi Stephen. Very glad you enjoyed your stay. We are glad you enjoyed the mooring and facilities. We are lucky to have Dave here and look forward to seeing you again!

The mooring ball was easy to pick up and had two lines, for our catamaran that was fantastic. The staff was welcoming and very kind. Had lots of recommendations for Salem. The town was quirky as was expected and easy to walk everywhere. Uber was easy to locate when needed.

Hi Jason. Glad you've enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again!

We've never been disappointed at a Safe Harbor marina. Great staff and facilities are the norm. We received clear instructions coming in and help with our lines. While the transient face dock is open to wakes during the day, they die down at night with the traffic. The House of Seven Gables is across the street from the marina's pedestrian gate, and "downtown" is pretty much right there. Coffee, and muffins/donuts on Sunday morning... and a quite nice deck overlooking the marina/harbor. Salem/Hawthorne Cove is a go-to overnight for us if the wind is right. Update: we spent two nights on a mooring... multiple launches service their busy (on weekends) mooring field. Hawthorne Cove stays on our short list for day or two (or three) getaway.
Marina Response:
Hi Neil. Glad you've enjoyed your stay and our location! Glad you enjoyed staying on both our dock and a mooring! Look forward to seeing you soon!

Very large mooring field and very attentive staff running the tender to and from our boat (until 2200hrs). Because the area is so large, I was concerned that we wouldn't find the appropriate moring ball. The tender operator hailed us on the VHF and met us and directed us! He did this to all the folks coming in on this busy holiday weekend. After we were settled, he made a special trip to let us know door/gate codes and where to eat, etc. Impressive!! The place is located within walking distance of lots of places to eat and drink. Bathrooms, shower, laundry. We had a terrific stay.
Marina Response:
Hi Eric. Glad you've enjoyed your stay and our location! We try to make sure our waterfront staff is the best you'll find on your travels.

About Safe Harbor Hawthorne Cove

In the heart of one of the most historic towns in the country, Safe Harbor Hawthorne Cove is a gateway to Salem’s eclectic culture and the popular North Shore. An atmosphere of rich maritime history combines with newly renovated facilities including a wave attenuating dock and state-of-the-art marine service center to create a distinctive New England home port

Directions

As you approach the mouth of Salem Harbor please contact us on VHF Channel 08. If coming in for a SLIP proceed to green daymark #23 at the edge of our mooring field for your slip assignment and instructions. From there proceed to green can 25. At green can 25, you will see the corner of our face dock, perpendicular to the ferry. A dockhand with a red shirt will come down to assist. Please be cautious of the Hazard markers just off of the face dock. This is a mud flat with 2' of water. DO NOT go in-between the hazard markers.

If coming in for a MOORING please hail us on VHF Ch. 08 at the mouth of Salem harbor and proceed to green daymark #23. You will either be told to hold your position there or proceed to daymark #2 depending on mooring assignment. Either the launch operator on duty or a dock staff member in a marina work boat will come and escort you to your transient mooring.

Navigation Considerations: Low water and mud exposed intertidal at Mean Low Water to the west of the fairway and marina's C dock towards Derby Wharf. Sand and mud not exposed at low water in front of Marina’s A&B Dock.
