Great marina. Friendly staff and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I’ve always enjoyed the downtown location of this marina and now it is even better. The Safe Harbor management/dock team is fantastic. Thanks for a great stay.

Kyle is a huge asset to Safe Harbor! He is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay their very much. He was able to accommodate us at the last minute when we did not have a reservation.

Had a great time. Staff was super friendly and courteous. Short walk to downtown.

Friendly and beautiful. Easy access to downtown Beaufort. Outer dock aligned with tidal currents made docking easy. Facilities older but clean and well-maintained. We will definitely make this a regular stop.

We were a group of 4 boats part of the Lake Murray Power Squadron doing a trip from Charleston to Hilton Head for the holiday weekend and decided to keep our boats here. Very friendly personnel, easy in and out and perfect location for exploring Beaufort. Special shout out to Kyle and Troy for their hospitality and helpfulness.

We love sailing our sailboat BabyGirl to this marina from Windmill harbour. The dock staff is very friendly and helpful. In my experience the bathrooms are clean but need updating. The Marina store is not always open (or it wasn't on the Sunday before Memorial Day which we thought was not good as we needed supplies- we have never encountered this issue before but that was disappointing) We often have to ask for codes/wifi password. Overall, we do enjoy coming here as Downtown Bft is steps away!

Great location and friendly staff. The marina is older and a bit worn with narrower dock walkways. Be mindful of the current speed and direction when docking, but nothing of great concern. Overall great stay with lots of walking paths and restaurants nearby. We had to order delivery because of the Coronavirus shutdown, but everyone was very nice and had great customer service. Would recommend this marina for a short stay.

Great staff and facilities, excellent proximity to a walk to town. I planned our arrival at slack water, so made docking easy. Currents can be swift here. Plenty of water depth on outside face. Only downside, pretty buggy in the am and pm which made it a bit uncomfortable, but with all the marshes, cannot be helped.

Staff is super. Nice facilities. Currents are strong due to tides yet manageable. Beaufort is a nice southern city to walk or tour.

The dockhand met us at the slip to help us dock. I prefer direct bookings as opposed to dockwa but with the way Safe Harbor is buying up marinas I guess i'll get used to it. The docks were in good shape and they have a pump out station and boat which we did not use. The bathrooms were a little further than some but were clean and each dock has a substantial locking gate for security. Access to downtown is very good and there are shops and restaurants to please most everyone.

A real disappointment. Docks are old and in poor repair Mem's bathouse:terrible walls covered with dried soap which shows they haven't been cleaned in a long time. Apparently the ventilation system doesn't work since there was a box fan set on high to circulate some air. Sinks were dirty In the future I'll stay at the family owned Port Royal Landing Marina Beaufort is a nice little town but it looks like Safe Harbor isn't putting in any improvements. The office staff didn't provide access codes but lots of advertisement literature. Overall, I want a refund. One small bright spot dock staff was polite and got us docked safely. Zero stars

Location, dock and attendant were great. Bathrooms, particularly the showers were not clean.

by dspatio on Dec 04, 2019
Easy in and out. Nice staff very helpful getting tied up. Bathrooms need help. But did have good washer dryer facility.

by charlestonport on Dec 03, 2019
Love the people at the marina; very very helpful; bathrooms/shower area could be updated.

by captainmichael on Nov 30, 2019
Just an overnight on a mooring ball. They were closed for the holiday so little information was available. But, because I have stayed there several times before I knew which moorings were available for a boat my size.

by kdrozdek on Nov 24, 2019
Bathrooms and showers VERY dirty! They don't have to be stylish but they should be clean!! Staff seemed ambivalent when I mentioned this.

by svcoco on Nov 09, 2019
Safe Harbor Marina was a great stop as we cruised south. Perfect location among great restaurants n historical sights... all within walking distance. Kyle, the dockmaster, was friendly n helpful and the lovely ladies in the office were kind n informative. Showers n coin laundry ($1.75) were clean. Ship store sold wine n beer among other treasures. We even had instacart deliver groceries right to the marina 👍🏼 No car, no problem! Definitely recommend n will be back. Thank you!

Good docks. Showers ok. Town makes it worth the stop. Great restaurants and the Marina has a good ship store

The dock crew was efficient and very helpful. The dock was clean and neat.

by myalzero on Oct 28, 2019
Docks are in good condition and dock staff are friendly and very helpful!

by fishheadbarandgrill on Jul 03, 2014
Docks in okay shape. Dockmaster and staff were friendly. Has laundry, showers and bathrooms and dock gate under coded key. Ship's store has coffee (not free). Mostly stocked with souvenir items. Has an ATM. Great location. Tide runs strong through the floating docks. Fuel located on facing dock.
