Harbor Department

Sitka Harbors sunset

The City and Borough of Sitka Harbor Department operates and maintains 5 boat harbors to include Crescent Harbor, Sealing Cove Harbor, ANB Harbor, Thomsen Harbor and Eliason Harbor. We have available a tidal grid, gear work float and a drive down load/unload zone. We have a moorage area at the Port Facility (City Wall) that can handle up to a 300’ vessel. We also have a hoist with a maximum limit of 1,500 lbs.

We moor a lot of commercial fishing vessel, recreation and charter vessels. During the summer we also see a lot of large yachts visit our harbors. You are within walking distant to a grocery store, marine supply store, restaurants and to downtown. We also have restrooms and shower facilities on site above Eliason Harbor.

Float Plane dock is not usable and Closed at this Time

Harbor Master Stan Eliason says the floatplane facility is 54 years old and that the endpiece of the dock is unrepairable. The Harbors Department is reviewing underwater video of the remaining infrastructure to determine further action.

Emergency Notification System

The City of Sitka has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides the police department dispatch center the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire borough. Since this is a geographically based system, accurate addresses and phone numbers are required for it to work effectively. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
