Kodiak is proud to offer a full range of dockage, boat yard and marine services for commercial fishing, cargo, passenger, and recreational vessels. The facilities are owned by the City of Kodiak; operated, and maintained by the City's Harbor Department.

Two harbors provide protected moorage for 650 vessels up to 150 feet in length. Large vessels, including the state ferry, cruise ships and cargo vessels are moored at the three-deepwater piers. Two inner-harbor docks are available for vessels up to 120 feet that may be used for loading and maintenance activities. All vessels must register with the Harbormaster's office for moorage, services, and dockage. Electricity and water are available at several locations and in most slips. Other services provided upon request.

If you are not familiar with Kodiak's port and harbor facilities, please call or visit the Harbormasters office. Comments and suggestions to improve service and facilities are always welcome. Harbor staff may be reached 24 hours per day, seven days per week on VHF channel 12 or 16. The office is open 8 * 5 Monday through Friday in the winter. During the summer months, the office is open 7 days per week.

Marina Information

The City operates two marinas: One downtown (St. Paul Harbor) and another on Near Island (St. Herman Harbor).

Most slips have access to water and electricity. Depending on the size of the slip, electricity up to 100 amp, 3 phase is available.

Exclusive (permanent) moorage is available in both harbors. Vessel owners desiring exclusive moorage may apply by completing the waiting list application.
