The limits of Gibson Island Harbor consist of a line north across the Magothy Narrows, beginning at the most northerly part of Holland Point. The enclosed waters including Red House Cove, constitute Gibson Island Harbor.



The Harbor Master’s office is manned year-round and the Gibson Island Yacht Squadron operates four facilities:

  • Boathouse and finger piers at the east end of the Harbor
  • Mooring field in Gibson Island Harbor
  • Lighthouse Dock slips at the west end of the Harbor
  • Red House Cove slips in Red House Cove
  • Light House Dock Hoists – 2 tonsIMG_3941

Moorings and slips are available on a seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily basis. There is a yacht repair facility with a travel lift, operating as Gibson Island Yacht Yard.

From canoeing, paddle boarding, and kayaking on one of the Island’s two freshwater ponds, to the Gibson Island Junior Sailing Fleet founded in 1924, there is something here for anyone who wants to spend time on the water.
