Important Boating Safety and Information
Mooring & Float Permits are renewable annually January 1st through March 1st. Renewal forms are mailed February 15th and are also available at our office on the waterfront. Any mooring space permit that is not renewed on March 1st will be assigned to the next person on the waiting list.
Requests to be placed on our waiting list are accepted during regular office hours and must be updated annually. Both date of application, size and shape of vessel will be considered in new assignments. Certain floating structures within the city require permits by the harbormasters office as well as safety inspections. Please call for information and direction if you are considering such a structure on any of the city's public waterways including rivers and ponds.
Lynn Harbor has two public launching ramps:
1) The Launching Ramp at Blossom Street Extension has been resurfaced recently and provides ample parking space for car and trailer
2) The Launching Ramp at the MDC Reservation on the Nahant Causeway also provides ample parking space. Both facilities are currently open to the public with no fees.
Our office works closely with the Lynn Police Department, The Lynn Fire Department, The United States Coast Guard and the Massachusetts Environmental Police Marine Unit. It is our combined efforts to not only enforce Massachusetts' boating laws but to promote safety on the water.
