The Northeast Harbor Town Dock can be reached at (207) 276-5737 or on VHF channel 68. It has 16 rental slips and 50 rental moorings. Services available at the marina include water, ice, pump-out, trash, restrooms, showers, laundry machines, and two tennis courts. For further details, including pricing, see its website: www.mtdesert.org/harbormaster. Transient mooring rentals are generally available on a first-come, first-serve basis; call on ch. 68 as you approach the mooring area, and they’ll direct you to a mooring or float. The village of Northeast Harbor is located a short walk up the hill from the marina.
Clifton Dock is an arm of the Northeast Harbor Fleet, the local yacht club whose main operation is located in nearby Gilpatrick’s Cove. Clifton can be contacted at (207) 276-5308 or by hailing on VHF channel 9. Clifton operates a mooring field in the outer part of the harbor. Its moorings are mainly rented on a seasonal basis to Fleet members, but as these are not always occupied, some may be available for transients. Clifton Dock is located on the western side of the harbor fairly near the entrance. Its moorings are similarly located and, as such, are slightly less well protected and less convenient for those wishing to use the amenities of the village. Clifton’s dock is in deep water (20 feet plus), and it sells gas and diesel, water, and ice. Pump-out and trash services are also available, making it a highly convenient spot to take care of these needs.
