the heart


Portsmouth is a great place to stop and rest along the Intracoastal Waterway at Mile Marker Zero. With the deepest natural harbor, boaters have easy access to the ocean, the Chesapeake Bay, and both the Dismal Swamp and Chesapeake-Albemarle Canals.  Complimentary, short term mooring is available at High Street Landing.  Boaters are expected to complete the online mooring application before docking.  Please call (757) 393-8782 for a recorded message about mooring rules.
