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.

Parking for vehicles/trailers using the Traip boat launch is restricted until school ends for the summer.  Last day is currently scheduled for June 15.  Please do not park in the lot before 4PM (M-F) until then.



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.
