Floats are scheduled to be taken out at Pepperrell Cove on Monday, October 18. All dinghies need to be removed by Sunday, October 17. The large Frisbee wharf float and one adjacent dinghy float will remain for an additional few weeks for use by the commercial mooring holders. 

Parking for vehicles/trailers using the Traip boat launch is restricted now that school is back in session.  Please do not park in the lot before 4PM (M-F).

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.


Reminder that all moorings are required to be inspected by a diver approved by the Harbormaster as least every two years.  

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.  Speak to us before purchasing, as 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.
