A former shipyard, Pope's Landing is a scenic waterfront area next to Danver's Harbor, complete with public booth launch, benches, picnic tables and public restrooms. The town harbormaster's office is located here as well. The harbormaster manages the placement and permitting of 125 privately owned moorings. The town is not currently permitting new moorings, but those being sold are offered to applicants on a waiting list.
Boat launch fees at Pope's Landing are $5 for regular boats, $10 for out-of-state regular boats and $10 for commercial haulers. There is no fishing from the dock or the launch ramp, no non-emergency maintenance and no skiving or cleaning of fish allowed. There's a 30-minute tie-up area at the dock for boaters who wish to enjoy the view and use the facilities. Fuel and a pump-out service station are available at the Danversport Yacht Club Marina. There is a ten percent discount for eligible senior citizens - visit the tax collector's office at Town Hall with your ID and boat registration to see if you qualify.
In case of emergency, call: 911 or 978-774-1212 or VHF channel 16.
