Plymouth Harbor Dredging Nears Completion

The dredging of Plymouth Harbor is nearly finished after nearly four months of work—and just in time for the 400-year anniversary celebration of the Pilgrims’ arrival in America and the return of the Mayflower II.

The Army Corp has been dredging the federal mooring field, while a town contractor has been dredging the Mayflower’s berth and around the new pier.

From Plymouth beach into the harbor, the depth is now minus 15 feet at low tide. That should allow larger ships, including Tall Ships and smaller cruise ships, to access the harbor on any tide.
