Safe Harbor's Essex Island Marina is located five scenic miles from the entrance to the Connecticut River, from Long Island Sound. Offering a unique boating destination, Essex Island Marina's thirteen-acre property is just a short ferry ride from downtown historic Essex.

In recent years, Essex has been labeled the "Perfect Small American Town," as well as being selected as one of "The 100 Best Small Towns in America," and has also been chosen as one of the "1,000 Places To See Before You Die"!

Essex Island Marina offers a quiet, nature-packed respite from the shops, restaurants, and quaint - but bustling - village atmosphere. The "resort" marina provides plenty of family fun, too, with an oversized swimming pool, picnic area, wheelhouse customer lounge and plenty of family recreation areas, including volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, badminton, ping pong, bocce, and more.

The talented service team are part of the Dauntless Brewer Service Yard – with many years of experience, industry-certified credentials, and a year 'round, full-time schedule.

An ideal location for rendezvous gatherings, yacht club activities, waterfront weddings, and boat manufacturer raft-ups, our facilities can comfortably accommodate large groups.
