Where can I get me harborage for the night? ~Tennyson
Currently Boothbay Harbor’s maritime use is predominately for recreation purposes, Boothbay Harbor was historically founded as a port for large fishing & Windjammer commerce boats with it’s large, deep & protected harbor. Also referred to as “A Small Bay of Fundy” due to its high vertical drop in tidal range – 9 to 12 feet (the tide ebbs and flows in our harbor every 6 hours as the ocean fills up the harbor and then empties completely) which perfectly shelters all boats docked in the harbor from the damaging waves of the North Atlantic.
