Welcome to Valdez Small Boat Harbor

  • Valdez Small Boat Harbor is a 511 slip harbor, which is operated by the City of Valdez. The Harbor has a staff of 5 full-time employees and hires several part-time employees during the summer. The Harbor is open seven (7) days a week all year. Office hours are 0800 to 2230 from May 15 to September 1 and 0830 to 1700 the rest of the year. We accept MasterCard and Visa for payment of services. 

  •  We have 65’, 50’, 42’, 40’, 32’, 30’, 24’ and 20’ slips and approximately 900’ of transient dock space. Valdez Harbor utilizes the hot berthing system for transient boaters, which means we use tenant slips for transients when the tenant is out of the harbor.

    •  Boaters arriving at the harbor via water should call the office on VHF channel 16 to request moorage, we switch to channel 7 for our working channel. Boaters are to traverse the entrance, breakwater and harbor at a speed not to exceed three (3) miles per hour or at the slowest speed to safely maneuver. Once tied up at the dock, check in with the office to complete paper work for the vessel and pay any harbor fees that may be due.


    •  Boaters arriving via the highway should stop at the office, 300 North Harbor Drive, to register their boat and pay any fees that may be due before launching the boat. There is also a self-pay station at the launch ramp for those vessels that do not require moorage in the harbor.
