UPDATE – Pumpout Service

The factory-new lower unit on our pumpout boat failed and the vessel was towed back. Due to issues way beyond our control, our pumpout vessel is once again down and in need of further repair. We are pursuing additional repairs as a replacement engine will not be available this season due to a world-wide shortage of outboards.

If you are able to safely navigate to the Maritime Center dock, we will be able to pumpout your vessel by appointment only. Appointments can be made for Monday through Thursday from 4pm- 7pm or Sundays from 10am-2pm weather permitting. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We will update our website as soon as our vessel is up and running.

2021 Waterways Permit Decals

All permit decals were mailed to the address on your invoices on May 14, 2021.  Postal service delivery times will vary based upon distance and Postal Service staffing. If you do not receive your decals by May 28,2021, please check with your postal carrier. If you have received a delinquency notice regarding boat excise taxes, your decals cannot be issued until the Collector’s Office directs us to issue those permits.

Please open your mailing carefully as the thin decals often hide once they are let out of the mailing envelopes. All mailings were checked multiple times to confirm that your decals were enclosed.
Thank you and happy boating!

Arthur F. Dias Float Update

To protect the dock floats associated with the Town Pier and Launch Ramps at the Dias Landing located at 75 Gulf Road from winter weather and ice, all floats and gangways attached to that facility will be removed on November 19, 2020.  These floats will be stored in the facility parking area until the spring of 2021. 

The ramps and pier will remain open for use at the discretion and sole risk of individual mariners.

Pumpout Service Ends

All Pumpout services in Dartmouth will end at noon on November 17, 2020 and all equipment will be winterized due to the predicted freezing temperatures. This closure includes the on demand harbor Pumpout service as well as the shoreside pumpout equipment at the Maritime center. We look forward to seeing you again next season.
