Valdez Small Boat Harbor is an essential economic development resource for our community, serving as a significant stimulus for tourism and maritime industries.  Valdez Small Boat Harbor is also a member of the Alaska Association of Harbormasters and Pacific Coast Congress of Harbormasters and Port Managers, Inc.

Valdez Small Boat Harbor is a 511 slip harbor, which is operated by the City of Valdez. The Harbor has a staff of five full-time employees and hires several part-time employees during the summer. The Harbor is open seven days a week all year. We accept MasterCard and Visa for payment of services.

We have 65’, 50’, 48', 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.

Mooring Procedure
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 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.

Boat Registration
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. For those that are leaving a trailer in yard, please check with harbor office and pay fees due.
