About Chicks Marina

 

Kennebunkport is a destination worthy of its own special trip and for nearly 50 years Chicks Marina has been the name synonymous with boating on the Kennebunk River.

Founded by local icon, Booth Chick, and owned and operated by the Katz family for 30 seasons, Chicks’ goal is to provide you with the highest level of service from the moment you make your reservation until the time you depart. Chicks is located just a short walk from Dock Square, the center of Kennebunkport’s historic seaport community. While in town you will find unique shops, galleries and other attractions.  There are dozens of restaurants within a short distance from the marina as well as a variety of nearby sandy beaches.

Facilities

Our first-class facilities are the finest in Maine and are continuously upgraded to ensure that your stay will be a safe, pleasant and memorable one.  Chicks offers transient dockage, seasonal summer slips and heated indoor winter storage.

Chicks’ floating dock and piling system was completely replaced only a few seasons ago, with upgraded electrical (30/50/100 amp) and water systems.  The large open face dock and slips are dredged to 7 feet at MLW comfortably accommodate vessels up to 165 feet.

Chicks is the only marina in the Kennebunkport area to offer 91 Octane gasoline and ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. Most boats can be conveniently refueled while in their own slip. Fuel discounts are available for bulk purchases, seasonal slip holders and winter storage customers.  Please inquire with Charlotte, our marina manager or Aaron, our Dockmaster, for details.

Amenities

The Chicks Marina staff are at your service to arrange a variety of concierge services including restaurant reservations, car rentals, boat washing, repairs, general maintenance and diving work.

During your stay we encourage you to enjoy the use of our sundeck and patio complete with Adirondack chairs, picnic benches, sun umbrellas and gas grills. There is also comfortable seating in our indoor lounge area. Full bathrooms with showers and laundry facilities are also located on site.

Our complimentary 6-passenger electric GEM vehicle is available to shuttle you around town or to local beaches.  And speaking of complimentary, your stay includes free coffee and baked goods each morning and cookies and other treats each afternoon.

Our Ship Store sells a variety of Chicks’ branded apparel including hats and clothing as well as quality marine supplies, cold drinks, block and cube ice.  Starting this summer, we will also have a line of customized dog accessories, as well as life jackets for your furry friend.

Chicks Marina is dog friendly! Expect to be greeted by our lovely Yellow Lab mascot Libby!  Please feel free to join us with your four-legged friend at our Salty Dog Station watering hole and be sure to stop in for treats for your pal.  We do ask that you keep your pet leashed, in accordance with Kennebunkport leash laws.
