    Best Marina in Solomon's. We came here years ago as a transient, and recently looked at it again after they were bought by Safe Harbor. We know Safe Harbor from Charleston. Having made it through Covid lockdowns, they now have a new signature restaurant right on-site. They remodeled the main bath house and new floating docks have arrived for installation. True it is not a family owned shop, but to modernize the entire marina - which was needed - takes deep pockets. I miss the pool bar, and that is the only reason 4 vs 5 stars. We are very pleased with our new home.

    When you wake up in the morning and you think you're toast, because your starter doesn't work. It's really nice to have guys like this around, we called them at 8 o'clock told them we had the part on board, they're like "get over here we'll make it work", This can do attitude makes the world a better place. Within 2 hours our engine started reliably they had replaced the old relay, put in the new new one, as we carry as spares on board and we left happy. This is the way sailing is supposed to be, there shouldn't be 10 week wait list for getting stuff done we only have a 12 week sailing season. I highly recommend them next time we come up North we are definitely staying with them good people, honest one of the lowest bills in the marine industry that we've ever had. It reflected what was fair for the time spent. Sail fast and happy Captain Richard Hughes USCG license master But what so farmers OK

    No wonder Zahnisers was voted “best of the bay”! We were tickled pink with the service and friendliness of the wonderful staff here. We were able to grab one of their moorings (tip: arrive early to nab one), and at $1 a foot per night it’s a great deal! FREE use of bath house, laundromat (tip #2: you’ll need quarters to work the machines), pool, bikes, trash receptacles, dinghy dock, pump out, and shuttle to local grocery stores. Most things are an easy bike ride from the Marina, and it feels good to work those leg muscles after being on a boat for a few days. Highly recommend his marina and their fantastic staff - especially Mikhaela, and John the dock master! Thank you!!
