Reviews for Robinhood Marine Center
Out of the way - but a great stop, 2016-10-09
Captain: , Avondale, PA (448)

(Visited Again - 9/1 and 9/2/2016) Made a reservation through Dockwa for 9/2 but after an aborted attempt to stay at Seguin Island on 9/1, we called Robinhood and asked if they could take us a day early. They accomodated us with no problem. Received a
choice of possible moorings and selected one fairly close to the docks so we could minimize the rowing to get ashore. Received excellent directions to the mooring when we arrived.

Went to the fuel dock the next day to take on fuel at their excellent prices. While talking to the dock master, I mentioned we were having problems with our dinghy outboard. When the service manager then took the outboard ashore to test in their their tank he found it out of commission. He then arranged a loaner car and called a local Tohatsu service agent (Sheepscot Bay Boat Company) and arranged for me to take the outboard there for repairs. Within an hour I had a working outboard and was back at Robinhood. The responsiveness of the Robinhood staff was oustanding.

Both nights were quiet and very peaceful. We'll certainly come back again on a future visit to Maine.

(2015) My crew and I picked up a mooring for two nights on 9/1 and 9/2. This is a beautiful harbor that is peaceful all night. The moorings are spread out so there's no chance of swinging into another boat. The mooring field has lots of lobster pots strewn among the mooring buoys and the occasional lobster boat coming in to empty their pots. The mooring field is protected in all directions and the nights were very quiet.

Fuel was available at $2.77/gallon with an additional 10% discount for buying more than 100 gallons. I haven't seen anything less expensive along the Maine MidCoast.

There's a very good restaurant, The Osprey, on site with great views and good food. Prices are reasonable.

Heads and showers were clean and well taken care of.

There's nothing within walking distance to the marina. If you have a car, there's a pierside lobster pound and restaurant in Five Islands. Reid State Park has swimming beaches on the ocean in Georgetown, may 8 miles from the marina.

Extremely Helpful in a Bind, 2016-09-22
Captain: , Portland, ME (101)

We snagged a lobster pot going thru the Sasanoa river and were towed to a mooring at Robinhood. The yard manager was quick to offer help in clearing the prop and going over the engine. We managed to cut away the tangle of line ourselves but were happy to have another set of eyes to confirm we had not damaged anything. The yard manager came aboard for a quick seatrial and confirmed we were good to go with no damage. All it cost us was a large tip to go into the dock office tip jar. Really good people at this place!

A real community in itself, 2016-09-07
Captain: , Robinhood Cove ME (11)

Nothing else quite like it. A marina containing the historic buidings of a Maine seaside village. These now house a cruisers library, a history gallery and the old post office. Great places to read, work or relax. Plus a super protected marina, a good restaurant and first class friendly service.

Great stopover place, 2016-09-01
Captain: , Marblehead (10)

This is a great place for a peaceful, quiet, tranquil night. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Only negative thing we found was that the bathrooms and showers could use an upgrade, they were clean though. Also enjoyed the library. And PS to boaters who run their generators all night, please take an outside mooring away from other boaters.

Management response:
Pleased to hear you enjoyed our marina and it's tranquil setting. Want to say we will be renewing our bathrooms and showers this off-season. Look forward to seeing you again.

Decent restaurant on site.
Staff more than helpful!!
Courtesy car available for 2 hours a day.

new to Robinhood (update), 2nd year new management, 2016-08-21
Captain: , Augusta, Maine (245)

We arrived at Robinhood May 2nd with our boat. I like it here. Clean, pleasant atmosphere. Fuel is down temporarily due to needing to upgrade their lines but that will be back within the month they say. The owner is great and easy to talk with. The staff seems good although they are not in full swing just yet for the summer but when we came by land last year they were great.

It is now 8-9-2015.

My family and I have had our boat slipped here since the first of May and have spent every weekend on our boat here putting on 100 hours and 550 miles coming in and out of the marina about 17 times and spending many nights on board. I stand by my original assesment of this place. Just awesome. As a new boater my docking skills are well... lets just say They are slowly improving. These folks are Johny on the spot. They come running( necessary with me at times) to lend a hand. Always smiling and happy to help or give advice when asked.

Starting this season I was a little skeptical with new owners and some new staff. Andy and his crew made a pretty high mark to beat in service and atmosphere. The new crew is at least on par in my view. Always smiling, friendly and helpfull. Still very pleased in our second year here at Derecktor Robinhood. Note-My latest Navionics update has them listed as Detector Robinhood. Might make it easier to search.

Management response:
The underground fuel lines have been replaced and the fuel dock is operational. (July 13, 2015)

Robinhood marine visit, 2016-08-14
Captain: , Boothbay Harbor, Maine (20)

Nice slip and a very nice meal at the Osprey restaurant. Water off fro. 8pm to 8am was a bit of a surprise

Great Experience at Derecktor/Robinhood Marine, 2016-08-10
Captain: , Belfast, Maine (10)

Scott and his dock team do a fantastic job. They were very welcoming and accommodating. They helped with dock lines, provided a 30 to 50 converter, steps, and let me borrow their courtesy car for provisioning at a local store in Bath. Scott went above and beyond when he refunded me the money I spent on gas for the courtesy car. He told me that they are happy to provide the car and customers do not need to pay for gas. Riggs cove is beautiful and well protected and the facilities at Robinhood Marine are great. Definately worth visiting!

Robinhood Marine Center, Georgetown, Maine, 2016-08-10
Captain: , Marion, MA (10)

Robinhood Marine Center is a wonderful, quiet spot with a friendly staff always willing to help in any way they can. And if you don't want to eat aboard, the Osprey Restaurant overlooking Riggs Cove and the Marina is delightful.

Hallelujah stay, 2016-08-01
Captain: , n o n e (127)

The marina staff was very helpful and extremely polite. The facilities are clean, well maintained and interesting for first time travelers to Maine. Entering and exiting the marina is very easy - even at low tide. The currents are not strong within the marina but are strong on approach. There is a nice restaurant on site, but no other shopping near by. The history of this marina is very interesting. There are plenty of places to explore via dinghy from here and it is cheaper than staying in Booth Bay which is about 4 miles away and easily reached via dinghy.

Great Service, Nice Stop, Good Restaurant, 2016-07-17
Captain: , Saint Michaels (300)

We called Robinhood on the cell phone. Our engine was running hot. There was coolant in the pan under the engine. We were able to sail and add more coolant. Robinhood told us to call when we were near. We were told to go into a slip. Within 20 minutes Neal, the service manager, was on the boat. Ten minutes after that he had diagnosed the problem. A new radiator cap was installed. Neal then checked the rest of the systems and we were good to go. Wonderful, responsive service in a cost effective manner. After showers we took the boat to a mooring for the night and then went to the restaurant, Osprey, for a very good dinner.
Great people, wonderful scenery, a nice stop. Now under the management of Derecktor.

Full Service Marina and Friendly, 2016-07-16
Captain: , Stuart, Florida (539)

I support the Active Captain referenced marinas when the ratings warrant. This one did. They are under new management but have the same staff. Derector Robinhood is the new name and services were spot on. We were two boats traveling together and picked up moorings (a note here. They have very long pennants here and the swing room is not de conflicted with other boats. Be aware you could swing easily into another boat). Other than lobster pots in the mooring fields and lobsterman who barrel into the area waking everyone (Marina has no control from what they said), it was pleasant. I went in and got water, pumped out, used their courtesy car (I had a nasty infection on my knee and Scott was great, tossing me the keys and giving great directions to the clinic). Had some minor service on a drain and Neil (service manager) made room on the schedule for me and had John assigned for the work. Great job, very reasonable and quickly resolved.
Used their location to dinghy over to Boothbay for lunch and shopping one day and another day over to 5 Islands Lobster Company.
Their restaurant (The Osprey) was okay.
Great stop if you want to avoid Boothbay's surge. I'll be back.

Beautiful, peaceful setting, 2016-06-26
Captain: , Chebeague Island (420)

Great sunsets and sunrises to be had in a (very) quiet setting. The marina is quaint. There were quite a few boaters headed for the restaurant on the Saturday evening we were there, and we were very surprised that there was no one working at the marina at 4:30 on the weekend before the 4th of July. (Apparently the service is open until 8:00 starting the following weekend.) There is good, open internet. Could not find a trash can anywhere, but the dumpster is across the boatyard. The houseboats look like they would be a lot of fun.

Very friendly, 2015-11-12
Captain: , Kemah TX (20)

We arrived at the end of the season and left our boat for 2 weeks on a mooring while we flew back home. The marina staff was all very friendly. We didn't use much of the facilities, but we did use the laundry and the courtesy car. They were very flexible (it helped that the end of the season was dead) with our mooring and the courtesy car. Very close to Bath, so we borrowed the car and explored. It was great!

A diamond off the beaten path! , 2015-09-11
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (728)

I actually purchased my present boat from David Perry, the broker at Robinhood, back in 2013. We had been looking for our new boat for some time. We sold our former boat, which we owned for over 25 years in the spring and had looked very diligently since. I only mention this to say we had visited with many a broker, and David is one of the best.
As to the review, after purchase we wanted to go south that winter but the boat was not equipped for any sort of extended cruising. Therefore, as time was short, I contracted to have the service people install many items, including, solar, watermaker, davits, refrigeration and some cabinets in the V berth for our clothing. Each item was finished on time and within budget at the price quoted. The crew in the service area turned out to be some of the most congenial individuals anyone could ask for. We went south in 13, but found some other upgrades we wanted, so returned in the fall of 14 and left the boat for the winter with a list of requested upgrades.
When we returned in the spring of 2015, the upgrades were complete. Then we added another, the complete reinsulation of the fridge. This turned out to be a massive job, but was still completed nearly on time, if not quite within budget. This job led to two issues which needed attention. When the stove was removed to access the front of the fridge it was placed on a thick piece of cardboard, but during the work it somehow scratched the varnish on the floor. This was immediately rectified by the yard with a complete revarnish. Also during hole drilling to access the back of the fridge, somehow a tiny nick was made to the refrigeration line, which was also corrected by the yard. Both of these repairs were at their expense, as it should have been.
As for the dock workers, I have seldom experienced as helpful and pleasant a team as at Robinhood. They always took our trash to the dumpster, stopped to offer help whenever they saw the opportunity and ran to catch lines and help both seasonal and transient boaters dock.
The fuel system has been completely updated and there is a new loaner car this year.
I have noted some previous negative comments, some of which certainly have merit. To those comments, I have seen management strive to rectify as many as the physical structure of a property of this age and historical background would allow. During my time here, I saw the updating of the bathrooms and showers, work on the laundry room, a new deck for cruisers, the renewal of weekly seminars, a free concert every week, and a true concern about the reviews on this site.
This is a compilation of my experiences and observations during the portions of two seasons which I have used this marina.

Obviously, Active Captain is having an effect on marinas.

robinhood marine, 2015-08-05
Captain: , Georgetown,me (30)

great location, fantastic people, nice restaurant. marina clean, showers nice, wifi. superb maintence and repair work.

Excellent Full Service Marina, 2015-07-14
Captain: , Ipswich, MA (318)

RMC is a full service marina. Big wide slips, quiet moorings spaces well apart, fuel at vg prices in 2015, free pumpout, vg restaurant on site for the past two years, lending library, loaner cars, 5 mi to Bath for food/supplies, recently refurbished bathrooms and showers (kept clean, nice and bright). Doors need screens, though. Full service mechanical/electrical and paint shop as well as brokerage boats. Set in a quaint village, free parking, free music on Friday Eve's and weekly lecture series. Free daily newspaper and a great dock staff who are always avilable to help you in or out. In the AM each boat on the dock is checked by the marina staff on a checkoff sheet. Everyone that works here is very pleasant. Here is the only con: At dusk, the mosquitos appear for an hour or so.

Management response:
Thanks for the 5 star review. We've experimented with different mosquito abatement methods with no real success. That's a good hour spent in the Library or Restaurant (not on the outside deck).
One important benefit that you rarely see in the summer...we have a standby generator that powers the whole marina during outages.

Disorganized transient mooring system, 2014-08-14
Captain: , Cassiopea A (507)

Pretty location and nice facilities. But bathrooms arre a bit worn out.

When we called to ask for a mooring, we were directed to pick up any one with a yellow pennant. However, the color of the pennant could not be determined without actually picking it up! We ended up picking several with no success, and eventually calling the marina and asking asbout each in turn. We finally found one we could stay at (brown pennant, not yellow) but it was a hassle.

Management response:
Even as we speak, in the summer of 2015, we're working on it.

Great Place to Visit but Not to Get Work Done, 2014-05-09
Captain: , Marshfield (10)

We spent the summer of 2013 at Robinhood and it is in a lovely location and it is a pretty facility. The staff are friendly and accomodating. However, we required a variety of work projects to be completed on our boat and we were consistently dissapointed with the quality and timeliness of the work. It is a nice place to visit but have your work done elsewhere.

Management response:
A lot has changed at Robinhood in the last year. I'm hoping readers will see the change by reading better reviews going forward. We have a dedicated, professional workforce, and management and ownership are on the same page. We want your business.

Beautiful Marina with Courtesy Car, 2013-09-12
Captain: , St. Augustine, FL (4015)

The marina is built to resemble a village. Everthing is clean and well maintained. Has a separate building housing the lending library with tables and soft chairs. Staff is attentive and helpful. The courtesy car will get you to Bath for shopping and services in only a few minutes.

The only negative we experienced was that the harbor was filled with lobster pots. As we swung on the mooring during the day, we pick up one. The bouy was floating just under the swim platform and could not be dislodged. Waiting for the current to change and as we swung the other direction, we were able to dislodge the line. Overnight we swung and picked up another lobster bouy/line. There was no evidence of a bouy being caught until we put the engine in gear. The mooring we were on was in over 70 feet of water, so the swing radius was large, allowing the boat to swing over the lobster bouys. Nothing the marina can do about this situation, just be cautious.

Nice Marina!, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Cape Porpoise, Maine (240)

We called to reserve a slip after our Davit broke and we couldn't use our dinghy. Not only did they have room, but transferred me to the boatyard's maintenance head. After a nice meal at the Osprey Restaurant, we spent a quiet night and met the electrician early the next morning. He was pleasant and efficient, confirmed that the Davit was getting power, but couldn't go any further. There was no charge for the diagnosis and we were on our way. No more moorings this trip!

Pleasant Stop, 2013-08-01
Captain: , Denton, TX (435)

Pleasant stop - good restaurant onsite, but they tend to turn off the water on the dock at night.

Overnight Mooring, 2013-02-20
Captain: , Yarmouth, ME (30)

We spent one night here and found the staff very helpful, resturant was very good and the overall scenery and local cruiding area so nice, we asked to extend our stay and they very willingly let us stay another night. Had everything we needed, ice, water, fuel.

Great out of the way marina, 2012-07-25
Captain: , Biddeford Maine (49)

We spent 2 days in Robinhood Marina last summer and had a very nice time there. Not a lot to do, but they did have loaner cars to go into Bath for supplies. We had some trouble getting into the marina against the tide in Goose Rock Passage. We are looking forward to heading there again this season.

Nice, quiet cove, 2012-07-16
Captain: , Cape Elizabeth, ME (20)

We stayed here for one night. Facilities and staff were excellent. They let us move to a different mooring to get better wifi reception. Free newspaper at the dockhouse. Not a whole lot to do, but if you're looking for crowds, Boothbay is only a few miles away.

Pleasant surprise, 2012-04-08
Captain: , Brooklin, ME (1081)

We came here to wait for the appropriate tide window to catch the back way to Bath (via the Sasanoa,) and ended up staying for a night as we liked the grounds and facilities so much. Definitely a lovely place to stop.

Enjoy Robinhood Marine, 2011-11-28
Captain: , Freeport, Maine (294)

Stop in for a shower, bite to eat, a good book or music near the gazebo in the summer. Staff was helpful on our visit. We will be back.

Great Lunch Stop, 2011-08-07
Captain: , Castine, Maine (284)

We tied to an empty transients mooring and rowed in to walk the dogs and to have a great lunch, while waiting for best currents to transit the inland passage to Bath. An impressive facility.

Stop to visit friends 7/14/11, 2011-07-15
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1290)

A convenient stop to visit friends nearby. Grabbed a mooring ball in well protected cove for $35. Our boat handled well a severe thunder storm and high winds. Did not use the facilities but looked ok. Quaint atmosphere. Strong currents can make approach and departure challenging. Follow the marks.

Robinhood Marine Center, more than a marina, 2011-02-02
Captain: , Boca Raton (127)

RMC has first class facilities with an on site restaurant, library building with book swap. Uniquely, RMC has evening lectures on Wednesday evenings ranging from osprey habitat to genesis of Robinhood village name. On Fridays a jazz band plays in the late afternoon.

Nice and quiet, 2010-11-26
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

It's a little ticky getting in here -- Boiler Rock is named this for a reason. Take it easy passing between it and Soldier point. Once at Robinhood you'll find a quiet, comfortable spot with nice staff. Showers were clean -- but take the "close door" seriously or you'll shower with a lot of mosquitos. The trip up the Sheepscot River is delightful.

Update Aug 2010 - Still overrated but getting better, 2010-08-18
Captain: , York, ME (1880)

Updates since last review: The mosquito swarm in the evening is just as bad in late summer as spring and early summer. Still overpriced, but if you have BoatUS towing you can get 25% off slips and $0.10 off fuel. Still only 1 head and 1 shower each (M/F). Courtesy cars were available this time (mid-week). The quality and portions at the restaurant have improved, locals tell us it's under new ownership since our last visit. WiFi is now unsecured, and we got a usable signal near the end of "F" dock, so coverage seems fair to good. Plenty of helpful staff.

Robinhood Marine Center, 2009-08-19
Captain: , Southport, ME, USA (1158)

Great location
Great facilities
Great people
They are very helpful & will treat you right
As of Aug 2009 mooring price is $35/night

Robinhood Marine Center Moorings, 2009-04-23
Captain: , Castine, Maine (325)

Limited moorings - reservation strongly recommended.
As of 2008, new showers and rest rooms - BUT mooring price up to $40.

Beautiful spot, 2007-05-20
Captain: , Castine, ME (58572)

We picked up a mooring at this facility in 2006. It is a beautiful protected cove with incredible sunsets. Five Islands Lobster is around the corner by dinghy. If given the chance, I'd go back and explore a little more around this area.

We came back in May 2007 to escape some bad weather. Still a great facility.
