High Tide VariationThe harbour virtually dries out at low tide, restricting accessibility, but the breakwater, though exposed, can be used at all states of the tide. 3.6m to 4.4m. The slipway may be used for launching or recovery apart from 1 to 2 hours either side of low water depending on tidal flow. Slipway users should use the car park for trailers and car parking.
Depths
HazardsVessels entering the harbour should keep the black and white leading poles in line until 30 metres from the point of the West Pier then, keeping the poles to port, enter midway between the West Pier and the line of the leading poles. The harbour should not be approached in onshore winds. The adjacent Port Rae should not be entered without local knowledge because of unmarked rocks.
Principal UseLeisure and fishing (20 boats frequent the harbour).
Harbour SizeOne-basin harbour which offers 120 metres of quayside inside the harbour. A further 120 metres on the outer breakwater.
