Sailing your own boat out?

A few guest boat moorings are available for short term and overnight mooring. The Harbormaster, Sherm Stanley, can be reached at (207)542-9345 or (207)594-9342. He can help you find one or suggest suitable anchorages when you arrive – it’s first-come, first-serve, so contact when you’re near the island.  Private boats should not be tied up at the dock when mainland boats arrive and depart, nor be left unattended there. Lines must be long enough to accommodate changes in the tide which may be as much as 11 feet.

Please leave your drones at home!

Lengthy discussions on Facebook have shown that most people who live or stay on Monhegan do not want their peace disturbed by drones buzzing overhead.It is not a question of legality. It is a question of common courtesy and sensitivity to others to leave your drones at home… The winds are unpredictable, so the drones are in danger of coming down and lost. But flying kites on long lines is a long tradition on Lighthouse Hill and on Manana – and it takes more skill!

Well behaved, leashed dogs are welcome on the island if you recognize that you are responsible for their litter and behavior. They are not allowed indoors at the Museum or restaurants. A few cottages may allow pets, but please check with your rental agent before bringing a dog out. Your boat may charge for transport.
