Updates and News

The 2019 boating season is now behind us and thank you to all that made it successful.  We hope all have a great winter and we look forward to seeing all in 2020.  

As of January 1, 2020, the mooring renewal period will be open and available online. Walk-in renewals will begin the following day, on January 2, 2020.  For more information on mooring renewals, please click here.

If you are thinking of purchasing a new boat and putting it on your mooring, please remember, The Kittery Port Authority Rules and Regulations require Harbormaster approval if the boat is larger than your current boat. Please remember to reach out to me before making that purchase so we can find out if a larger boat will fit on your mooring. If you purchase a larger boat and did not have prior approval from the Harbormaster to put it on the mooring, the new vessel will NOT be allowed on your mooring until the research has been completed to ensure it will fit in the mooring field and that you have the proper mooring gear to hold it. We apologize if this seems unreasonable but as you know, nobody wants boats banging into each other and causing damage. 

MISSION

The Kittery Port Authority and Kittery Harbormaster mission is to provide marine law enforcement, rescue and education services to boaters within the tidal waters of Kittery Maine. We are dedicated to delivering these services to the boating community with courtesy and professionalism. Our goal is to foster a safe boating environment by maintaining a high state of readiness and cultivating partnerships with fisherman, recreational boat owners, marina owners, and other marine law enforcement agencies on the Piscataqua River in order to make Kittery the safest boating waters in all of Maine.
