Located in the heart of Scituate Harbor, next to a small United State Coast Guard station. The Harbormaster’s Office is staffed year round, with additional help during the boating season (May 15th – October 15th). The Scituate Marina (also known as Scituate Harbor Cole Parkway Marina) is home to numerous boat moorings. Transient slips are sometimes available here, and also across the harbor at the Scituate Maritime Center and Marine Park. Visit website for details.  Extend your visit with a stroll on the Scituate Harborwalk.


The Harbormaster and his Assistant Harbormasters are responsible for insuring water safety, maritime law enforcement, and the assignment of moorings and slips administered by the Town of Scituate.

This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.

Interpretive signage along the Harborwalk offers this history of the area: “The period of time between the mid 1600’s through the mid 1800s defined Scituate as one of the most prosperous harbors between Boston and New Bedford. As maritime based industries grew along the waterfront, the wharf area became the center of activity for the Town. Numerous men listed their occupation as shipwrights, chandlers, coopers, blacksmiths, carpenters and sail makers. Serving trade and travel, a ship yard, tide mill, lumber mill and livery covered the area where (the Mill Wharf Marina and restaurant) now stand. … Schooners, barks, brigantines and whaling ships were built and sailed from Scituate to destinations around the world.”
