When is this day celebrated? October 8

What is this day? A Harbormaster is an official responsible for enforcing the regulations of a particular harbour or port, in order to ensure the safety of navigation, the security of the harbour and the correct operation of the port facilities. National Harbormaster Appreciation Day is a time when coastal communities can come together to recognize and celebrate local harbormasters around the country. Harbormasters are key to ensuring the safety and quality of our experiences on the water. They perform vital roles; providing services while educating people on the use of our coastal waters.

Who created this day? This day was created by US Harbors in August 2019. 

How should this day be celebrated? National Harbormaster Appreciation Day should be celebrated by thanking your harbormaster for what they do everyday and educating yourself about what you can do to make your waterfront a safer and more tight knit community.
