The Queenstown Harbormaster manages the Town’s 1st and 2nd Avenue municipal docks, the Skipjack Cove Landing area, and areas within the tidal waters of Queenstown Creek. The Harbormaster is dedicated to delivering these services to the boating community with courtesy and professionalism. Every effort will be made to make Queenstown Harbor an enjoyable, accessible, and safe harbor for our residents and visitors.

Access to Queenstown Harbor can be gained from land via Skipjack Cove Boat Landing (restricted to permitted Town residents) or from the Chester River.

The Queenstown Harbormaster monitors and manages the annual and daily use of the First and Second Avenue municipal docks.

A limited number of slips are available from the town for lease annually and there is currently a “waitlist” for slip lease requests. Contact the Town Office at 410-827-7646 or for a Boat Slip Application if you wish to be placed on the waitlist for a slip. Applicants must have a current Maryland boat registration and be Maryland residents to be eligible for a slip. Slip lessees have access to water and electric service as part of their annual lease fee. The current annual lease fee for 2024 is $510.00.

Docking is permitted for up to 2 hours by transient boaters in approved areas at the docks. Refer to the dock map below for available docking areas. Overnight docking may be permitted upon approval by the Harbormaster. Contact the Harbormaster to request permission to dock overnight.
