Bulman Marine at King’s Landing

80 King's Landing, Norwell, MA 02061, USA


Owned By: Bulman Marine

Private marina with supplies, canoe and kayak rentals, boat storage, and a launching ramp for canoes, kayaks and small boats.

Tide Math: High tide at Bulman Marine is about 1 hour after the Boston high tide. Set off from here to go clamming!

Shellfishing Update: Effective March 15th, 2023, the North River shellfish beds in Marshfield and Scituate are temporarily closed, due to a sewer discharge event in Rockland. They will remain closed for at least 21 days. Check this space for updates. The clam flats in both the North and South Rivers are typically open from November 1 to May 31st. If there is a Red Tide, they may close sooner. (In 2023, some areas opened on January 1st and others will open on March 1st.) See this recent update on North River Shellfishing for locations.


Once owned by the King family, the roadway provided early river access.

On-site canoe and kayak rentals make river access simple. There is a launch ramp, but at lower tides, it is recommended that canoeists and kayakers use the dock to avoid deep mud.

Striped bass fishing is especially good in this section of the North River.

Trail Description

No trails.

Habitats and Wildlife

King’s Landing is bordered by 26 acres of salt marsh and swamp, owned by the Town of Norwell. Watch for blue heron and egret as they hunt for shad, herring and young striped bass. It is situated directly on the North River.

The North River rises from marshes and springs in Weymouth, Rockland and Hanson. It is approximately 10 miles in length, with its source at the confluence of the Indian Head River (Hanover) and Herring Brook (Pembroke). From there it flows through the towns of Hanover, Pembroke, Marshfield, Norwell, and Scituate to the Atlantic Ocean between Third and Fourth Cliffs, draining approximately 59,000 acres along the way.
