I believe the launch service has ended for the year.
perhaps call the marinas, they won’t be busy.

How do you tell a town mooring from a private mooring?

there is a one or two page guide/faq on the harbormaster's website, it explains how the mooring field is configured

Town moorings are green and say rental on them also.

It’s September call Old Harbor I bet you can get it. Closer to the beach restaurants etc. Even if you have to raft it would be worth it. Most of the loud drunk crowd is gone this time of year.

If you can get in Old Harbor for sure.

Action? I've stayed out there the weekend after labor day a couple times and the place is dead. Which is why I wait until the weekend after labor day. You will have no problem getting dock space. Just make sure they don't try to charge in-season rate.
