General information: There is a strong tidal flow in the narrows (up to 8 knots during spring tides). The Marina is entered from the South and skippers should be aware of the speed and direction of the tide when making their approach. Berthing is not permitted along the outer side of the breakwater. The Marina can accommodate up to 50 boats, however the ‘nose to tail’ berths can only accommodate boats less than 6 meters in length and many of these are let seasonally to local boat owners. Approximately 12 ‘finger’ berths are reserved purely for visitor use and most of these are serviced (i.e. have electricity supply). There is a toilet cubicle located near the security barriers.
