Bucks Harbor is located in Machiasport on Machias Bay, about 25 miles southwest of Eastport. Bucks Harbor is formed by an inner and outer harbor and is used by a sizeable commercial fishing fleet and a small number of seasonal recreational craft.
Corps’ work in Bucks Harbor consists of an eight-foot-deep anchorage, 11 acres in area, on the western side of the outer harbor. The anchorage extends southeasterly from Sprague and Look Wharf at Bucks Neck towards Bucks Head.
Completed in 1974, the anchorage was constructed under Section 107 of the Corps’ Continuing Authorities Program.
