TRAVELLING BY SEA?

 

  The entrance to the harbour by sea is at the SW end of the limestone harbour between the                                                                 rounded harbour end and a basalt rock armour sea defence. Two red triangular reflective                                                                   beacons are positioned to guide vessels into the port side of the outer mouth, then a 90°turn to                                                         starboard takes you through the inner mouth (4metres wide) and into the secluded mooring                                                             points.                                             

 

  A sill at the inner mouth retains a 1-2 metre mooring depth at the pontoon fingers.This sill inevitably                                             restricts depths on entering at low tide so please take extra care on approach, a depth gauge will be                                                 visible on the inner mouth to assist you. Although periodically dredged depending on recent weather                                              conditions the outer mouth can silt up to a similar level as the sill.
