Reviews for Rockland Landings Marina
Friendly but rolly in a storm, 2016-09-11
Captain: , Boston (155)

We stayed there twice: once in nice weather, and once as waves were rolling into Rockland harbor from a storm offshore. The marina was pretty rolly on the latter occasion.

Staff were very pleasant and easy to deal with.

Right in Town, 2016-07-02
Captain: , Freeport, ME (608)

Hamilton Marine is right across the street. The main drag is two short blocks away. Rockland has really gotten better - plenty of shops, several art museums/galleries, and plenty of restaurants. Kevin, the owner-operator of Landings will take good care. We generally take a mooring, and get fuel and water there.

quick stop, 2015-09-23
Captain: , Manchester NH. (285)

Stopped here to help a friend move his boat to be hauled for the season. Kevin the dockmaster was once again very nice to let us leave the boat on the face dock. We were surprised to learn that the dock power was being shut off on the 21st and the marina was going to start hauling the docks later this week.

Extremely helpful staff, 2015-09-08
Captain: , Avondale, PA (448)

Tim, the dockmaster, assisted us in locating our assigned mooring which was a long distance from the Landings Marina. The close in morrings are apparently suited for boats smaller than our 42 feet. This harbor is stuffed with moorings and there's lots of boat traffic in and out. That leads to some rolling but it wasn't excessive.

We expected to use the RYC launch service but it was out of commission on the Saturday we were there. "Two Toots", the other launch service was busy towing a boat in the harbor. We were afraid to be stuck on the boat all day but a call to Tim at Landings led him to offer to let us tie up at his dock for the day for $20, the same price as one round trip for two people on the RYC launch. That turned out to be a great solution becasue it gave us the ability to return to the boat multiple times during the day.

Rockland is a great place to visit. Hamilton Marine has a store just across the street from the Landing Marina. The Lighthouse Museum is close and very informative. The downtown area is filled with galleries and restaurants. I can vouch for the Thorndike Creamery as a great source of sandwiches and Gifford's ice cream. The Breakwater Winery tasting room was a pleasant surprise as well.

We'll come back again as we continue cruising the Maine Coast. We have lots more of the town to explore.

Grest layover spot, 2014-07-29
Captain: , Granby, Ct (22)

Had to layover here for 3 days due to weather. Lots to do in down with museums, shops, and places to eat and drink. Rode our bikes out to Owl Ledge state park and got a tour of the lighthouse. Moorings are $30, slips $2.25/ft, diesel $3.89. You must eat in their restaurant. Try the lobster BLT or lobster rosoto. Very friendly owner and chef. Got a tour of the kitchen where they were cleaning a dog fish for the next days' special

Trip to Maine, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Horsham, PA (110)

Facilities are somewhat limited. Floating docks which were extremely wobbly.

Easy Access Fuel Dock, 2013-10-05
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (405)

With a 45 foot sail boat, we are more interested in how easy it is to get to the fuel dock (and how easy it is to get off) than the price of fuel. This floating dock is right on the harbor. It couldn't be any easier to access. Still, it was the lowest price we paid for diesel since Beaufort, NC!

Nice marina close to downtown, 2013-08-23
Captain: , Corpus Christi,Tx (1569)

Marina is close to downtown and Hamilton Marine Supply. Had dinner at The Pearl and lunch and the Lobsterman. Both were excellent. Marina is well maintained and the laundry room clean with 2 machines each. Nice stop--can get a little rocky, but this is true for the whole harbor.

Close to Everything, 2013-07-28
Captain: , Port Aransas, Texas (998)

This marina and moorings are close to the town center and Hamilton Marine Supply. Frank was most helpful and friendly.

Rockland is a good stop, 2013-07-25
Captain: , Epilogue (326)

We took a mooring near the entrance to the mooring field. It turned out to be rolly as expected. The staff at the marina was helpful and courteous.

It appeared that anchoring In the south end of the harbor would be less impacted by wakes and roll from outside the harbor and not that far from the dinghy docks.

The town has much to offer with museums, galleries, restaurants, and a variety of shops, within easy walking distance. Hamilton's is an excellent marine supply resource and it too is within easy walking distance.

2012 visit, 2012-09-18
Captain: , Stuart Fl (300)

We stayed at Rockland Landings Marina on 8/13/2012. This was our first visit to Rockland. We liked the marina - easy to find and very friendly dockstaff. Kevin put us on a facedock which was easy access for us. We got a very good price for fuel because he had brought in a large quantity for someone who then cancelled. He gave us directions to town and a restaurant which were easy to follow. We will go back next time we go to Rockland.

Landings Marina: best place in Rockland., 2011-10-10
Captain: , Rockland (45)

The level of service provided at this marina is far superior to any in the Mid-coast of Maine. Prompt, professional and able to cater to all my needs on every visit. Always full during festivals, a testament to their popularity.

Landings Marina, 2011-09-03
Captain: , Kemah, TX (124)

(Updating our review of 4 years ago. ) Possibly the best marina in Rockland. Manager/harbormaster was friendly and efficient. Showers and laundry very good. Fuel and water convenient. Very close to down town stores and restaurants and a Hamilton Marine chandlery. Lots of motion from wakes and wind in large harbor even in slips, but this affects all facilities in Rockland.

Pretty decent ..., 2010-09-16
Captain: , Rockland, ME (90)

Spent 2 weeks at the Landings. Pros: Proximity to downtown (2 minute walk to Hamiltons chandlery, & 10 minutes to Rockland's many excellent restaurants), friendly staff, Johanson Boatworks charters, wifi. Cons: Easterly winds can make the marina untenable, fishing pier next door can create a miserable night (lights, noise, loud music), shore heads need work. Bottom Line: We'd go back.

Rockland Landings, 2007-04-15
Captain: , New York (153)

We have stopped here on our vacation cruises many times. It has floating docks, diesel, gas, and ice, and showers accessible by combination locks at all hours, as is the laundry.

There is a restaurant, also called Landings, across the parking lot. In past years it has had reliably superior fried scallops--dry scallops thinly battered, that did not steam the batter off, as happens with soaked scallops in so many places. In 2006 they were not quite as good, but I think it was too thick a batter, but still unsoaked.

The Hamilton Marine store is just across the street, a generally well-stocked chandlery for yachts and fishboats.

On Thursday in the summer a farmers market comes to the area just south, near the Public Landing and Harbormasters office (where you can get wifi internet access with your laptop.)

On main street there is a bakery with quite good sourdough boules, and several restaurants with real food. Amalfi is a mediteranean bistro we like a lot. very near that is a sushi bar with the only female sushi chef I have encountered, and a nice wine bar. A little further north is Rockland diner, which is the place for breakfast. They make fresh fishcakes every day.

Out of town to the south Primo is a fancy restaurant that did a fine job the one time we got a table there. It attracts people with cars from all over, so you can't usually book a table if you are just staying one night. They keep a couple of tables open for walkins, but you might have to wait.
