    Plum Island Commercial Tours and Docking Information

    Plum Island Boat Dock Now Open! 

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announces the opening of the Plum Island boat dock, due to recent improvements to the dock and breakwall.   This is the first time the dock has been open since Plum and Pilot Islands were transferred from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2007.

    The dock will provide access to Plum Island by providing moorage for both general public and commercial vessels.  General public use moorage is on a first come first serve basis and is reserved to the public docking area.   Commercial moorage is by Special Use Permit only and is reserved to the authorized vessel docking area.  A map of docking areas, permit application and special conditions may be found below. For more information, call 920-948-5037.
