Safe Harbor Sportsman rises from Hurricane Sally

Posted

Facing in-water headwinds from Hurricane Sally in Sept. 2020, management of Safe Harbor Sportsman and local partners endeavored to develop an improved, world-class marina facility.

“Nearly every part of Sportsman Marina was impacted by Hurricane Sally. Our docks were destroyed, the famous Tiki Bar was severely impacted, and our operational capacity was drastically limited. But Safe Harbor faces challenges with persistence and innovation. This spirit has resulted in a brand-new Gulf Coast marina destination that will exceed anything that has ever existed here,” said Jane Kirkman, regional vice president, Safe Harbor Marinas.

The Tiki Bar has undergone a significant facelift and re-opened in April 2021 with new leadership and a refined food and drink menu.

Known for top-notch customer service, Safe Harbor Sportsman will be installing state-of-the-art floating concrete and timber docks that will accommodate vessels of more than 100 feet in LOA. These docks complement a full-service dry-stack operation.

“Our goal is to offer our customers a world-class boating experience from the moment a splash reservation is made,” stated Safe Harbor Sportsman General Manager, Bryan Walden. “We will have the Gulf Coast’s premier facility from which to deliver that value proposition.”
