Description for Pope's Island Marina
The HDC operates the 198-slip public marina at Pope’s Island, which is located within the Hurricane Barrier in the upper harbor east of the New Bedford/Fairhaven Bridge. Pope’s Island Marina opened in 1993 along the south side of the island with financial assistance from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. The marina is one of the finest public facilities on the East Coast. Support services include on-site laundry facilities, pump out facilities, shower rooms, and conference room, with dockside water and electricity available.
There are no fuel prices listed for this marina

It's less than a mile walk to the 34-acre New Bedford Whaling Nat'l. Historical Park (or take the free shuttle from Rte 6th & 10 just over the bridge). The Park's Visitors' Center (33 William St. 9am-5pm) has maps and brochures of the 70 whaling-related structures within the 13-block area. The Whaling Museum is a half block - climb aboard the half-scale, fully-rigged 89 ft. whaling bark Lagoda." The adjacent 1832 Seamen's Bethel is immortalized in Herman Melville's Moby Dick as the "Whaleman's Chapel." For fans there's also a Moby Dick Trail. Stop at the N.B. Visitors Center on the harbor front the Oceanarium in the former power plant and the free Summer Nights Concerts in Whaling Park. It's also a hard-working fishing town with the occasional raucous crowd."
