Client Feedback

We love to hear from you!

We arrived with a small issue on our boat, their service department was able to take care of the problem same day. Not to mention the amazing dockstaff! To top it all off, honestly the nicest bathrooms and showers I have ever seen in a marina!

David N

We spent 2 nights at a slip which were sublime by all accounts. From the moment we received our welcome introduction which was notably authentic, professional and courteous to the shove off and good wishes! Jilani, the dockmaster, brings a new level of service and hospitality which we appreciated so much.

We loved everything about South Wharf. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The marina is clean, quiet and in a beautiful location. Restrooms are deluxe, with laundry in the building.

Deb S

We love staying here. Short walk to quaint village with beautiful homes and great places to eat. Marina has all of the amenities; nice clean bathrooms, laundry facilities and a full service yard. The dock staff are so friendly and willing to help with any request. This is definitely an annual stop for us!


Perhaps the best location in New England with easy access to everything from Cape Cod, the Islands and Newport. Dartmouth is MA’s best kept secret sea town. Good people, fast service and beautiful sunsets!
