The Harbormaster operates under the jurisdiction of the Fall River Police Department. The Fall River Police Department has made several administrative changes in the way that the Harbormaster Office conducts business so that we can provide the best possible service to the boating community. The public will notice a new and easier method to apply for and receive permits, as well as be placed on the mooring wait list. In addition, there will be many changes that take place throughout the boating season. These changes are all intended to make the boater’s experience in Fall River more enjoyable, safer, and hassle-free.
