Information for Harbour Users

Ops. Bulletins

  • Harbour Operations

    There are currently no restrictions to vessel movements within the Harbour

  • Gate Closures

    2018: In order to alleviate silt accumulations in the harbour and entrance channel it is necessary to close and 'run' the gates; this is normally done at spring tides. Boat owners whose boats are in the Inner Basin and who wish to go to sea during these times should contact the Harbour Master in advance and he will do his best to find temporary berthing in the Outer Basin if required.

    Planned dates are listed below. Any changes or additional closures will, if possible, be intimated on our Facebook page. At all times the gates will only be closed when necessary and, where the dates fall on weekends, particular effort will be made to limit any restrictions to before the first tide on a Saturday or after the second tide on the Sunday.
