About


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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Marina Response:
Ahoy Dastrau! The crew here thanks you for your wonderful review! We were sorry to see you depart ahead of schedule and wish you and your family a safe return trip home to your loved ones.

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.

Marina Response:
Ahoy Alliance crew! We are already missing you on our docks! Thank you for joining us over the Fourth- Your festive decor and smiling faces were a fantastic addition for the holiday! It's been a fun adventure to bring in new brands like Helly Hansen and Sun Bum. Thank you for joining us- Looking forward to having you back here soon!

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

Marina Response:
Ahoy MISS LIZA! The crew here at Chicks so enjoyed having you dockside! Although we can't bring our little town of Kennebunkport closer to Newport, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
