Our facility offers 43 deep water moorings and 15 slips in the most protected basin in the area with direct open access (no bridges) to the Gulf of Maine. We are located in a water body known as the Back Channel; it is just off the north side of the Piscataqua River mouth, across from Jamaica Island. Our mooring balls are white, stamped with the letters KPYY, and numbered 1101 up to 1143. Protected on three and a half sides, we are considered the area’s primary hurricane hole. All moorings are granite block and all ground tackle is inspected annually each spring.

Transient moorings are available for vessels up to 65 feet LOA and slips for vessels up to 60 feet LOA. Our moorings vary in weight and swing area so advanced reservations are highly recommended. No launch service is provided, so bring your dinghy. We have a dinghy dock and our restroom facility, located at our front office entrance, is open 24/7.

Kittery, along with its neighbor Portsmouth, NH (across the river), are recognized for their historic, cultural, and scenic assets as well as their many restaurants and shopping/ supply amenities. We have bikes available for guests to travel into town and their are public dinghy docks available in Portsmouth if you'd like to travel over by water.

Moorings are fine, location is beautiful but nobody answered our inquiries and we were unable to access the facilities because we were not given information about how to get in, despite calling and messaging them on Dockwa.

Marina Response:
Paula, We are of course disappointed that your experience with us was not what you expected. We strive to exceed expectations and more often than not we accomplish that goal. As we discussed on the phone I am sorry for the miscommunication and not getting the information you needed for our facilities to you when you needed that info. I am hopeful that you will return for another try, if you do that mooring will be on us. I hope the rest of your trip goes well and you have a safe and happy rest of your summer. Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

What a great, understated and hidden spot...our slip neighbors could not have been more friendly and Jason could not have been more helpful...this is definitely a spot that we will return to. Best regards, Bridging The Gap III

Beautiful location. Quiet. Convenient and nice guest area by the shower, with a coffee machine. Trash and recycling convenient. Walk to town with restaurants and shops 1.3 miles.

Great stay at KPYY Staff are very professional and friendly. Jason runs a great yard and is a pleasure to work with. Moorings and docks are in perfect condition and very protected from Wind and wakes. Internet was a little spotty sometimes. Only place in Portsmouth area I would stay.

Marina Response:

One of the smoothest stays we’ve ever had on a mooring. Can’t say enough about Jason. Emailed map and mooring assignment right away and was there to greet and help when we arrived. A definite go back to.

Reserved a night on a mooring to rest for the night on our trip from Noank CT to Portland Maine. Very well maintained Arrived at 6:00 PM on a Sunday and the facility was closed, but Manager Jason had reached out to via e-mail to ensure that I was familiar with his mooring field, the lay out of the facility, and the acces codes. Only inconvenience was there being 1 bathroom w/shower. It took quite some time for the 5 of us to cycle thru and quite a wait the next morning. Additionally l would note that we were unsuccessfull hailing a cab/Uber/Lyft when trying to go into town for dinner. The one cab that would come out had a 45 minute lead time. We did however find a Chinese restaurant that delivers and feasted in the Yard Lounge Thanks KPYY!
