No Wake Zone
The entire harbor is a “no wake zone”. Please keep your speed to a minimum (5mph maximum) and ensure that your vessel does not produce a wake. Please note: mariners are responsible for any damage/injury caused due to their vessel wake!
No Discharge / Pump-out Information
Buzzards Bay is a “No Discharge” Zone. As such, you are forbidden from discharging your holding tank within our waters. We provide free pump-out service.
As a boater in Dartmouth, you are required to obey all local, state and federal Rules and Regulations.
Padanaram Harbor is a “No Wake” zone. While in the harbor, please keep your speed below 5 MPH and keep your wake to a minimum. There is an area North of the Bridge (West side of harbor) designated for Water skiing and other activities.
