85 metres of visitor pontoon moorings are located below the Harbour Office, the prominent white building north of the first line of pontoons on the east side. After berthing please visit the Harbour Office for the security code for the pontoon walkways and shower/toilet block. If arriving out of office hours (or at weekends October – March), please call 01903 721 215 and select the option to be put through to the Duty Officer. If you have the code from another visitor, please email email@example.com or leave a voicemail on our office number with your boat name, contact details and planned length of stay. Alternatively, come see us at the office in the morning after 9am. Please note that the office is only open at weekends from April to September.
Rallies are welcome, but please contact us as far in advance as possible as our visitors pontoon can only accommodate around 20 yachts (when rafting).
Water and electricity is available along the pontoon. There is no Wi-Fi but if you need a weather forecast or internet access in emergencies, feel free to visit us in the office.

Water depths alongside the visitors pontoon
Following an intensive dredging campaign in July 2019, the minimum observed water depths alongside the visitors pontoon is currently 2.2 metres except for the northern 30 metres of the pontoon which is as shallow as 1.5m.
Vessels over 2.2m draft can be accommodated but should be with the advice of the Harbour Master and will likely need to be rafted so they sit further into the channel in deeper water.
