The Winthrop Harbormaster's Department oversees miles of coastline, including waters in East Boston as well as the water surrounding Deer Island.  The Harbormaster handles all permits for vessels in town waters.
Harbormaster's duties also include the safety and security of Winthrop's waterways. Specific objectives are to maintain a physical presence by patrolling harbor and waterfront areas and operating the state-funded Pump-Out boat.
