Just to the right as you enter the harbor, the first marina is Carousel, which usually has plenty of guest moorings available, plus showers, fuel, water, and a restaurant. It’s not a far hike from Carousel into town, where your kids will go wild with the temptations of ice cream, souvenirs, and anything one can imagine in a Maine summer revelry. Call Carousel Marina (207-633-2922) or via VHF Ch 9; alternatively, the next marina on the right is Brown’s Wharf, Ch 9 & 16 (207-633-5440). Other marinas offer dockage and moorings, but we do not have recent experience with them. A complete list is provided at the bottom of this page. Expect price increases in 2022 versus prior years.
Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club, on the far left (port) side of Boothbay Harbor, welcomes visitors, offering rental moorings at $50 (that’s up $10 in 2022) per night for boats up to 60 feet, plus launch service, Wi-Fi, showers, laundry, tennis, bar, and dining room access — all described via the link above.
Limited anchorage can be found in 24 to 42 feet in the outer harbor northward of Tumbler Island and off McKown Point. The inner harbor has depths of 6 to 24 feet. Megayachts anchor south of Tumbler Island between Mouse Island and Spruce Point.
The Boothbay Harbormaster is Peter Ripley at 207-380-7283.
