Rent a Boat Slip

The Public Works department has made improvements to some of our recreation areas including the harbors and boat ramps. 


The Harbors & Boat Ramps Department is responsible for maintenance at the County-owned harbors and marinas in Northampton County. These facilities include Oyster Harbor, Willis Wharf Harbor, Morley’s Wharf Harbor & Wise Point Kayak Launching Facility. All of these harbors offer free public boat launching opportunities. Oyster Harbor has two floating docks, a kayak dock, sanitary facilities and two large parking lots to be maintained. The county also maintains a 10-slip marina opposite the Oyster harbor from the public boat launch with sanitary facilities. Each slip has water and electric connections available. Willis Wharf Harbor contains a 50-slip marina, sanitary facilities, water/electric availability, a floating dock to serve public boat launching, a floating dock to serve a portion of the rental boat slips and a kayak launch. Morley’s Wharf has a fishing pier, sanitary facilities, a floating dock and a floating/fixed combination dock. The Morley’s Wharf Fishing Pier is free and open to the public. A saltwater fishing license is not required to fish from the pier. The license fee is paid by Northampton County annually. Wise Point Kayak Launching facility contains a parking area and an area along the shoreline dedicated to launching kayaks and canoes within the marsh.
