The Vinalhaven Chamber of Commerce welcomes you! Our organization represents the broad range of businesses and organizations flourishing on our island.
Vinalhaven Island is twelve miles off the coast of Maine, a working island of striking natural beauty. We have a year round population of about 1200 people, and welcome many more from around the world in the summer months. The village of Vinalhaven is located on Carver’s Harbor on the southern end of the island, a short walk from the ferry terminal. The harbor is home to one of the world’s largest lobster fishing fleets, with that industry making up roughly half of the island’s economy. We have a full K-12 school system, a medical and dental health center, volunteer ambulance and fire crews; in addition to lobster-persons, we are builders, musicians, plumbers, teachers, shopkeepers, electricians, innkeepers, artists, writers, realtors, restauranteurs, boat builders, ferry captains, architects, administrators, conservationists, and more. We have a full-time Town Manager who works with an elected Board of Selectmen to govern our community.
We hope our website gives you an enticing glimpse of our rich and varied island community. We encourage you to come see for yourselves!
