Hendricks Harbor Navigation Project

Hendricks Harbor

Hendricks Harbor in Southport, known locally as Cozy Harbor, is located on the western shore of Southport Island, near the mouth of the Sheepscot River. Situated about 10 miles southeast of Bath and 50 miles northeast of Portland, the harbor is used by local fishing and recreational fleets and transient boats.

Completed in 1956, the project consists of a channel between Pratts and David islands that allows small commercial vessels to pass from the Sheepscot River into Hendricks Harbor. The channel is nine feet deep and 30 feet wide.
