Pope Island Marina

New Bedford, Massachusetts

5.0/5 rating (1 votes)

The HDC operates the 198-slip public marina at Pope’s Island, which is located within the Hurricane Barrier in the upper harbor east of the New Bedford/Fairhaven Bridge. Pope’s Island Marina opened in 1993 along the south side of the island with financial assistance from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. The marina is one of the finest public facilities on the East Coast. Support services include on-site laundry facilities, pump out facilities, shower rooms, and conference room, with dockside water and electricity available.

Marina staff monitor channel 74 daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and marina security is conducted 24 hours a day.    The marina is popular and its slips fill quickly. Preference for future docking is given to boaters currently using the facility. The marina maintains a waiting list of boaters who want to rent slips. The docking fee is $90 per foot of vessel length. The marina also reserves several slips for transient dockage, at a rate of $3.25 per foot of vessel length.
