Please be aware that safe navigable depths are only available over spring tides and early communication with the Harbour Master is essential in order to plan the passage. At least 7 days’ notice is required from vessels not familiar with the port or any vessel prior to the first visit.

All berths in the port are dry at low water. Unless the planned operation can be achieved on a single high-water cycle, all vessels entering the port must be able to safely take the ground at low water.


There are charges for the provision of pilotage services and for using the Port. These are detailed on the Charges and Permits page.
