Pumpout Boat

The Harbormaster's Office operates the Pumpout Boat.  The boat is in service 7 days a week approximately from the middle of March through the middle of November. The rest of the year the vessel operates only on Saturday, weather permitting. 

During this time, call the office to provide your location, vessel name, approximate amount of gallons to be pumped off, and your vessel will be placed in the queue. The charge is $5 per tank, up to 50 gallons. Anything beyond that is an additional $1 per tank for every 10 gallons.

Pumpout Boat


The vessel can be contacted on VHF 17 and via mobile at 410-320-6852. The current hours of operation are 9 am to 3 pm, Saturdays only. Check this page later for possible changes in the schedule. It is best to contact Dahlgren as early as possible during the service day. The boat begins service in Spa Creek, heads to Weems Creek, services Back Creek afternoon, and then returns to Spa Creek for the end of the service day.

Additional Pumpout Stations

Be advised that it is illegal to discharge untreated waste effluent into Annapolis City Waters. Aside from our popular pumpout service, boaters may also utilize subsidized pumpout stations located at private marinas in Annapolis area waters.
