Important note: The City of Bangor has established an exclusion zone for anchoring and mooring along the inner Bangor Harbor. This zone has been established to protect a federally mandated coal tar remediation project area. This area has a northern boundary of latitude 44●47’36.7368” N and a southern boundary of longitude 68●46’23.2644”W. Anchoring or mooring in this zone is prohibited.
Bangor is located near the head of tide of the historic Penobscot River. Bangor Harbor was once the busiest lumber port in the world, shipping the products of Maine’s northern forests to the world. Today, our harbor is home to pleasure craft and coastal cruise vessels. Bangor Landing offers two public docks. Water and power are available, as are pump-out services. Our docks can handle private vessels of virtually all sizes, although larger vessels should contact us in advance of arrival. The harbor is open throughout the fresh water boating season.
Bangor Landing is located on Bangor’s historic waterfront adjacent to our downtown. Public transportation, banks, museums, shops, and restaurants are but a short walk away. Bangor International Airport, Central Maine’s Gateway to the World, is ten minutes from the harbor.
The Harbormaster's Office on the Bangor Waterfront offers restrooms open to the public during daytime hours, and at many evening events. There is also a water fountain and bottle filling station courtesy of Bangor Greendrinks on the side of the building.
Season is May 15th through October 15th
