Kennebunkport is a destination worthy of its own special trip and for 50 years Chicks Marina has been the name synonymous with boating on the Kennebunk River. Founded by local icon, Booth Chick, and owned and operated by the Katz family for 30 seasons, Chicks’ goal is to provide you with the highest level of service from the moment you make your reservation until the time you depart. Chicks is located just a short walk from Dock Square, the center of Kennebunkport’s historic seaport community. While in town you will find unique shops, galleries and other attractions. There are dozens of restaurants within a short distance from the marina as well as a variety of nearby sandy beaches.
Our first-class facilities are the finest in Maine and are continuously upgraded to ensure that your stay will be a safe, pleasant and memorable one. Chicks offers transient dockage, seasonal summer slips and heated indoor winter storage. Chicks’ floating dock and piling system was completely replaced only a few seasons ago, with upgraded electrical (30/50/100 amp) and water systems. The large open face dock and slips are dredged to 7 feet at MLW comfortably accommodate vessels up to 165 feet. Chicks is the only marina in the Kennebunkport area to offer 91 Octane gasoline and ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. Most boats can be conveniently refueled while in their own slip. Fuel discounts are available for bulk purchases, seasonal slip holders and winter storage customers. Please inquire with our Marina Manager for pricing details.
The Chicks Marina staff are at your service to arrange a variety of concierge services including restaurant reservations, car rentals, boat washing, repairs, general maintenance and diving work. During your stay we encourage you to enjoy the use of our sundeck and patio complete with Adirondack chairs, picnic benches, sun umbrellas and gas grills. There is also comfortable seating in our indoor lounge area. Full bathrooms with showers and laundry facilities are also located on site. Our complimentary 6-passenger electric GEM vehicle is available to shuttle you around town or to local beaches. And speaking of complimentary, your stay includes free coffee and baked goods each morning and whoopie pies and other treats each afternoon. Our Ship Store sells a variety of Chicks’ branded apparel including hats and clothing, cold drinks, block and cube ice. Chicks Marina is dog friendly! We do ask that you keep your pet leashed, in accordance with Kennebunkport leash laws.
Chicks Marina can welcome boats up to 165' and their floating dock system is dredged to 7ft at MLW.
This was our first visit to Chicks. It was recommended by long time boaters from our home marina. The entire staff was very helpful and friendly. The facility is clean, well maintained and attractive. Great proximity to all the attractions of downtown Kennebunkport. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend this marina
Very nice marina. We were there in early June. It was quiet due to early season and Covid. Staff was very helpful and stayed a little late to help us tie up after a rougher and slower than expected trip there. Hope to stay there again soon.
This is one of the most friendly marinas we have been to and we travel from bar harbor to south of the Bahamas. Always enjoy our stay at Chicks! The Mitchell's
Friendly staff, great location and clean! We love our trips to Chicks!!
Repeat visitors and will be for years to come. Dock hands and staff are some of the best in the business and the facilities were immaculate as always. Can't wait to be back next season.
We had an absolutely great time. Thanks to all at Chicks!!
Great place , very well run, and friendly staff. Excellent location. Definitely going back
Chicks marina was very clean and organized and the staff was friendly and helpful. We would recommend chicks to anyone that needs a place to keep their boat in Kennebunkport!
Amazing staff and immaculate facilities. Nice family atmosphere and having Rudder roaming around the docks saying hi to everyone is just the icing on the cake. Being dog friendly just says something about these folks. They are happy to shuttle you around and their dock managers are the absolute best. The store is extremely unique and I am happy to say I have my Chicks Gear now and very happy. They are kind, open to you having guests in and out and COVID 19 conscious. Excellent stay. I recommend them highly. Thank you again...John Bennett 100 Ton Captain, and happy customer.
Great Marina with super service
Great Marina. Very Helpful and Friendly staff.
Our second year at Chicks, what a a fantastic Marina. Staff was wonderful and went out of their way to take us to Goose Rock Beach. We really miss Rudder, he’s the best Yellow man ever! Thanks for making our trip great in these uncertain times. The crew of LINUS
This was our first time and certainly will not be our last it was perfect start to finish great slip warm and friendly greeting so many things within walking distance beaches restaurants little shops all within half a mile and if you are not one for walking they have a courtesy shuttle to get you around our dock and Walker was so friendly and knowledgeable we had a wonderful stay!
Our getaway to K'port could not have been better. The marina is pristine and the staff is absolutely top notch. They were ready for us upon arrival and offered assistance in docking. We were always offered rides into town and were graced by the presence of Rudder. We will certainly look forward to returning. Highly recommend!
Facility was the best and most importantly staff (particularly Amy) could not do enough to make our stay most enjoyable. Definitely will be returning.
Amy and all of the staff at chicks Marina are absolutely outstanding. They have the best customer service there is. My dog wound up getting his nail caught in the track of a my boat, Amy in the staff help the so much gave us all kinds of 1st aid products for my dog. They were also so helpful with everything at the Marina. The Marina is so well kept it's beautiful it's maintained perfectly. If you are looking for a Marina to stand I would pick this one over any Marina.
Amy, Tyler and the rest of the crew at Chicks are very friendly and professional. There was plenty of sanitizer everywhere and all wore masks. The heads and rest of the facility were exceptionally clean. Most restaurants have outside dining and have tables at proper distances. The food has not suffered. We had a super dinner at Mabel’s under their tent. A great time is always had by all at Chicks.
Lovely walk into town, beautiful marina, friendly and helpful staff. We will return!!!
Be it that I used to manage and live at Chicks- I'm a little bit of a biased audience BUT Chicks is a very special place: If you're a transient vessel and you want to experience Kennebunkport (my hometown), Chicks is the best way to do it! They're home to the largest and deepest capacity slips and they're the ONLY fuel dock in town! The dockmaster, Tyler, is super helpful and the dockhand staff (especially Henry, Adam and Schuyler) are top notch... I'm so grateful for my time at Chicks and many of those customers I met there have become lifelong friends!
Beautiful location close to town. Price high and strict no refund policy and no pump out service. Staff was nice and beautiful area.
Tyler and Adam as well as Rudder were great, very help full. Great local, reasonable fuel and clean.
Great stay! Staff was exelent, they were standing at the peir waiting for me to pull in. Kennebunk river was easier than expected to navigate. Short walk to town. Can't believe how helpful and atentive the staff was, they treated me as if i pulled in on one of the Hinkleys they had tied up, despite the contrary. Will be back next year.
As always, the staff could not have been nicer...they were always available to assist, with any of our needs...it is without a doubt a marina that we will continue revisiting! Sincerely, Bridging The Gap III
A wonderful spot with a friendly and delightful staff. We have enjoyed our stay
We had a wonderful stay. Very knowledgeable staff. Great location with a short walk to town.
This marina was a bit on the pricy side, but the service was top notch, the facilities were clean, and the staff was friendly. I would definitely return.
Sailing to Chick's from Perkins Cove for the first time was a perfect day. The Chick's crew waved us in as we approached the dock, helped us secure our lines given the swift current, and was extremely helpful during our short stay. Making the arrangements via Dockwa was very efficient. Surrounded by Hinkley's impressed my crew. Everything at Chick's is perfectly maintained. Well done!
Beautiful marina, great amenities, and staff that exude excellence in customer care. Wonderful experience from beginning to end!
Chicks was a perfect experience. Abundant and friendly staff. Clean and new facility. Close to all that matters.
The staff was super friendly and helpful!
First time at Chicks and definitely not the last. We stayed two separate nights and it felt like we were returning home. Charlotte and her team are first class. We truly appreciated the pre arrival information, the smiling faces that welcomed us and the follow up once we left. Facilities were clean, and the coffee and muffins a treat. Thank you - Blue Horizons
The facilities are nice but the people are even nicer. Great place to visit
The staff at Chick's, as well as its location make this a wonderful destination or stopover. They couldn't be nicer or more helpful --- prior to arrival, while docking or refueling at docks that already have fenders, during the stay, and when departing. We had to leave earlier than planned due to a death in the family, but we will return.
Every few years we travel from Cape Cod to Down East Maine and always stay at Chick's Marina. It is by far the cleanest and most professionally run marina that we stay at! Always perfect in every way!
This was our second 4th of July week at Chick’s Marina and it is in a word: stellar. From the incredible pre-arrival contact, follow-up, and personal attention paid to every transient, to the marina manager, Charlotte, dock hands Henry, Tyler, Eric, Jake, Schuyler, and the great marina dogs Sophie and Rudder and all of them. Each and every one sport a smile and a can-do attitude going above and beyond in every way. Coffee, muffins, Whoopi pies, and the coolest marina merchandise around, the place hums like a top. Fuel dock for gas and diesel so convenient and hoses that can reach virtually any slip on the dock. Spot-on radio contact and docking assistance makes your arrival with or without current and at any tide simple and stress free. Thank you gentleman and ladies. They have ice and most of the basic essentials in the small supply store and can get you most anything you may need. Restaurant recommendations, piping hot showers, laundry and excellent fast (even for Netflix) internet and reliable streaming Wi-Fi. Water hoses placed around with great water pressure and nozzles at the ready. You will enjoy watching the big striper right amongst the docks and the fast and courteous golf cart shuttle around town. Even the trex dock material is impeccably clean and all lines neatly coiled all day every day. Secure gates and parking make for a restful nights sleep. We used the clean and new propane grills and enjoyed several sunsets from the Adirondack chairs on the deck overlooking the river. Simply cannot beat the location, amenities, service, and friendly welcome at this marina. We hadn’t planned a second trip from Boston to ME this year, but now we surely will thanks to the high level of service and comfort at Chick’s. Looking forward to next year already. And our guests have already asked to return as well.
First class, beautiful, great location, and friendly!
Upon my first visit, I was the only sailing vessel in the marina. The dock staff was attentive, the restrooms were clean and their Ship Store had the best branded apparel of any of the large marinas or boatyards I’ve been to. This place has the ability and wherewithal to handle huge boats but still has the feel of a family establishment. I’ll be coming back!
Friendly staff, very clean and modern facility. Easy walk to town and the best restaurants.
My wife and I spend the past weekend at Chicks for the first time. Chicks is definitely a five star marina. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, the docks are in great shape, easy access in and out of the marina and the facilities are clean and top notch. The marina has a great store with a nice lounge and patio. From the marina it is a very short stroll to town where they have great restaurants and shops. Charlotte and the crew at Chicks made it an outstanding weekend ! John and Nancy Sakovits/Northern Lights
Great experience! Beautiful full service facility...especially enjoyed the ships store and the complimentary baked goods and coffee. Provided electric car ride to and from downtown area. Treat yourself to a stay at Chicks Marina!
Beautiful spot! Professional staff!
If you find yourself traveling to Maine, & you're looking for a great marina to spend time at this summer, please find your way to Chick's Marina, Kennebunkport. Charlotte & her staff will make your stay more of an experience, rather than just a stopover. From the minute you arrive you're greeted with the smiling faces of Skyler & Jake. When you reach the marina office, where Jennifer was to check us in, there are freshly baked "whoopie pies" waiting for you. If you need a ride into town, well, Charlotte will be happy to assist with their electric 6 seater car. If Newport, RI, were just a bit closer, we would certainly make a monthly trip to Chick's. Until next year, thank you, Charlotte & crew, for making our trip to Maine such a warm & wonderful experience! Best, Capt. Michael, M/Y MISS LIZA
Charlotte and her team of deckhands were great. The facilities were were in perfect shape and our first trip to Kennebunkport was very memorable. We will be back again and stay longer next time
Welcoming, attentive, helpful and friendly. Facilities and amenities are excellent. Charlotte, Jake, Tyler, Jennifer and Schuyler were all terrific. Eric personally gave us a ride into town one morning! We will keep going back.
First rate all around! Charlotte and the entire dock staff were as helpful and friendly as you could find. The place is immaculate. We’ve stayed elsewhere in Kennebunkport for less money, and Chick’s is better value.
Chicks is the best marina in New England. Charlotte and the staff will go above and beyond to accommodate you. State of the art facilities, great ship store, clean restrooms, and out of this world customer service. If there was a sixth star to give, Chicks would get it!
Chicks Marina is a fabulous marina in Kennebunkport. Charlotte, The GM is wonderful, friendly, engages with the boaters. Charlotte will help to get an answer to any question you might have. The dockhands, in the blue teal shirts, are friendly and go the extra mile to ensure that all needs of their boaters are met. The marina is clean and the facilities are up to date. I highly recommend this marina if you are in the Kennebunkport area. We will see you again.
Very friendly and helpful dock hands and staff.
