The Basin feels more like an inland lake that an anchorage on the coast of Maine. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected nature preserve which feature hiking trails and much flora and fauna, The Basin is a great spot to plan a serene stopover on your way up the Maine coast.

The Basin is also quite close to Popham Beach State Park, at the southern end of Phippsburg. Popham is truly one of Maine's best beaches, partially due to its size/width - you will feel like you're on the Pacific Ocean. Certainly worth the trip if you're anchored in The Basin.


Access The Basin through the skinny cut, halfway up Phippsburg’s western shore, across the New Meadows River from Cundys Harbor.

According to At low tide, the channel into The Baisn is seven feet deep in the middle. “I advise people to pay close attention to their charts when going in at low water,” said Phippsburg’s harbormaster, Doug Alexander. For some reason, few yachts overnight here, leaving those who do to enjoy the remarkable stillness.
