Pulpit Harbor is a small harbor on the island of North Haven in Maine. North Haven is located in Penobscot Bay, about 12 miles from the midcoast city of Rockland. Its year-round population of 355 (2010 Census) grows in July and August as families who own or rent seasonal homes on the Island return.
Pulpit Harbor is well-protected, except in winds from the west to the northwest. The harbor is dotted with moorings and a large number of them are always empty. If you bring your own boat, there is plenty of room to anchor, but there is no service in Pulpit Harbor. Having said that, the town dock at the cove’s northwest end serves as a gateway to a number of attractions. The North Haven General Store is only a mile and a half away.
