How do I visit Castine by boat?

Castine Harbor (44°23’N 68°48’W), at the entrance to the Bagaduce River, has ample depth and is easily entered. Dyce Head Light, 134 feet above the water, is on the north side of the entrance to the river. Pass close to the fairway bell buoy on either side and, keeping a reasonable distance offshore and south of the buoy marking Otter Rock Shoal, steer into the harbor on a midchannel course.

Town Dock floats are available from May 15th to October 15th and tie-up is limited to 2 hours between 9:00am and 5:00pm on a first-come, first-served basis. Overnight dockage is permitted and fees apply after 5:00pm. The per-night overnight dockage fee is $3/foot up to 80 feet of total length. The Acadia floats at the Castine Waterfront are designated for pick-up and drop-off only. Unattended boats will be moved at the owner’s expense.

Trash disposal is available at a cost of $2.00 per bag.  See a dock attendant for assistance.

Pump-out service is available (use at your own risk) at no cost July 1st through September 2nd from 8:00am to 5:00pm or by appointment with the Harbormaster May 1st through October 15th.

To reach the Harbormaster, call (207) 266-7711 or (207) 266-2404.
