Characteristics

Description

The City of Kodiak is situated on the northeast corner of Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska, South of Anchorage and east of the Alaska Peninsula.

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.

The City of Kodiak prohibits anchoring within the inner Boat Harbor Light I.

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. A $25 annual fee keeps a vessel on the list until a slip is offered. Slip assignments are based upon availability and vessel size. Waiting times vary depending on the length of the vessel. 

Transient vessels will be hot-bunked in vacant slips on a short-term basis. Long-term hot-bunk slip assignments are possible on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact the harbor office for all assignments.

  • St. Paul Harbor (Downtown)
    250 slips - 24' to 60'
  • St. Herman Harbor (Near Island)
    325 slips - 17' to 150'
