Kennebunkport is a destination worthy of its own special trip and for nearly 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 Charlotte, our marina manager or Tyler, our Dockmaster, for 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 cookies and other treats each afternoon. Our Ship Store sells a variety of Chicks’ branded apparel including hats and clothing as well as quality marine supplies, cold drinks, block and cube ice. Starting this summer, we will also have a line of customized dog accessories, as well as life jackets for your furry friend. Chicks Marina is dog friendly! Please feel free to join us with your four-legged friend at our Salty Dog Station watering hole and be sure to stop in for treats for your pal. 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.
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!
Kennebunkport is a great destination. And Chicks is best Marina to stay at. The facility is immaculate, and the staff are most professional and friendly. I give it my highest recommendation.
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.
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
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.
Chick’s Marina 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 Eric, Jake, Skyler, 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. 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.
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.
