Wishing all our Customers and Harbour Users the very best for 2020 and we look forward to welcoming you to Bembridge Harbour.
Please be aware that the Duver Marina main visitors' toilet and shower facilities are temporarily closed for repair and refurbishment, ensuring that we can offer customers adequate provision this coming season, ahead of the new facilities block being built. The facilities will reopen by or before the end of March.
Alternative toilets are available at the Duver Marina and there are shower facilities elsewhere in the Harbour with return transport provided on request. There will be a discount on visitor berthing fees during this time - we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
We've had some great events last year, the first of which - the inaugural Duver Dash (5k and Junior charity fun runs) - took place in May, with over 100 partipants. June's Rock the Boat, featuring music from 60s and 70s was great fun and saw a record attendance of over 400, and the Family Fun Weekend at the beginning of August, with the addition of a Harbour Party was definitely one to remember! Click on the names to go straight to the event page.
The final event of the season, our inaugural Bembridge Harbour Charity Ball on 21st September at Brading Haven Yacht Club, was a wonderful occasion and like all our events, was in support of our 2019 nominated charity The Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy, for whom our visitors and Harbour users have helped us raise over £6,700 over the season. Please have a look at their page to read about their amazing work. Click here for our 2020 events schedule.
The Duver Cafe, under new operators this year, is now closed for the winter. Catherine, Pete and Jo would like to thank all their customers and will be back in the Spring - see the Cafe page for more.
Following a complete upgrade of hard/software during 2019, we now offer FREE WiFi to our visitors. The code can be obtained from the Berthing/Harbour Office on arrival.
For Facebook followers we will be continuing our monthly Draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth during 2020 ....
For visitors new to the Harbour we recommend a look at the Navigation Section, where you'll find a pictorial guide to safe pilotage in the Harbour that can be printed off for use on board. There is also a video guide of the entrance channel.
The Harbour is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and nearby Brading Marshes are home to the first RSPB site on the Island. There are many picturesque walks in and around the area, historic sites to visit, beautiful beaches to enjoy and a busy Harbour where there's always something to watch. The villages of Bembridge and St Helens offer a rich variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and are well worth exploring. Visit our Local Information section for more details. Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club both offer their facilities to visiting yachtsmen - details here.
See you soon ...
