Notes

This is a working fish pier. There will be no-one to handle your lines, and you're on your own with the self-service pump. You can climb the ladder or walk around to the brow, and at low tide you'll need to manhandle the hose down to the dock and back up when you're done. But this is the cheapest fuel in the harbor, and it's open 24 hours. It's heavily used by both recreational and commercial interests, so you know the fuel is always fresh.

VHF channel

None - the dock is not staffed.

Reviews for NH Port Authority Commercial Fish Pier
Convenient and good fuel price, 2013-06-16
Captain: , Portsmouth, NH (279)

The fuel dock is located on the northeastern side of the commercial dock. Safest entry is from the Prescott Park side and south to the fuel dock. There are no services for recreational boaters here but fuel which has one of the best prices in the area. The pumps are located on the second level of the docks. Once tied-up at the dock, it is easier to go around the dock and up the ramp rather than climb the ladder, then lower the fuel hose down to the lower dock and go down and fuel up. There is one gas and one diesel pump, with one credit card station between the pumps. Not fancy but worth fueling up here.



Cheapest Fuel, but you have to work for it., 2011-05-31
Captain: , York, ME (1880)

This is a working fishing dock. It's old and can be dirty. The fuel is self-serve and there's no attendant. Credit card only. But the dock is long and well protected, and you can't beat the price. Wear your old shoes and use your oldest dock lines. There's a button inside the hose spool on a red box that rewinds it when you're done.
