Searsport Harbor Navigation Project

Searsport Harbor in Searsport is located on Penobscot Bay, about four miles northeast of Belfast Harbor and 26 miles north of Rockland Harbor. The harbor is used principally for the receipt of petroleum products and salt, and the export of lumber, paper, and much of Aroostook County’s annual potato crop.

The project, completed in 1964, consists of an access channel, 35 feet deep and 500 feet wide, west of Sears Island; and a 35-footdeep turning basin extending from the end of the access channel to the piers at Mack Point. The turning basin has a maximum width of 1,500 feet.
