The Harbormaster and his assistants are guardian's of the waterfront, with duties ranging from harbor planning and management, to mooring and dockage management. The department is involved in protecting and education of the public regarding safety and legal boating, law enforcement (State statutes and local regulations), along with emergency search and rescue. Harbor patrols are conducted to ensure safety and offer any type of water related assistance to boaters, bathers, and fisherman. They also work in conjunction with other departments such as the U.S. Coast Guard, Massachusetts Environmental Police, Coast Guard Auxiliary and other harbormasters to ensure a safe day of boating. The Harbormaster Department monitors VHF channel 12 & 16.
