There are town piers, with public restrooms and fresh water available, on both the east and west sides of the anchorage basin at Wells Harbor. There is a small-craft launching ramp on the west side of the harbor. The pier on the east side has a depth of about 6 feet reported alongside its float landing. The pier on the west side has a depth of about 10 feet reported alongside its float landing. The Wells Harbormaster maintains an office on the westerly pier and offers transient moorings for $15 per night.
The Webhannet River Boatyard adjacent to southward has a marine railway that can handle craft up to 40 feet for engine and hull repairs and dry open storage.
Lords Harborside Seafood Restaurant is also adjacent to the town pier.

Wells Harbor, is used by local fishing and pleasure craft. The harbor is protected at the entrance by two jetties marked by lights.
The principal outlying dangers off these beaches are an unmarked shoal and foul area that extends about 0.5 mile off Wells Beach and has a rock which uncovers 3 feet and rocks awash on it. Bibb Rock, which uncovers 2 feet, about 0.8 mile off the point at the north end of Moody Beach, is marked on its east side by a buoy.
A dredged channel leads from the sea through the jetties to an anchorage basin about 0.5 mile above the jetties. A Federal project provides for an 8-foot entrance channel, thence 6 feet to the limiit of the project above Town Landing and a 6-foot anchorage around Town Landing. The channel is marked by a buoy and daybeacons to the anchorage basin. It is reported that even during a moderate sea, swells break across the entrance and make entry hazardous; the south jetty should be favored.
