We look forward to welcoming visitors over the quieter, cooler months when calm weather can make it an absolute joy to be here! We have SPECIAL OFFERS on walk ashore winter berths and 2016 mid-Harbour "trot" moorings (offer expires 11th December). For Facebook followers we are running a monthly draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth .... Bembridge Boat Storage also has a winter storage offer available.
The Bembridge Harbour Family Fun Weekend this year was a wonderful event with a record 199 visiting boats in the Harbour on the Saturday. The event raised over £1,700 for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and Dance on the Duver raised in excess of £4,000 for Bembridge RNLI and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. 2016 dates are 22nd to24th July - put it in your diary!
At the start of May we launched live-feed tidal data, giving the height of water at the Entrance Channel bar, with the data being updated every 60 seconds (displayed at the top right of this opening page and at our Berthing Office). It has been a great success and made life and passage planning easier for all Harbour users!
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 an electronic Navionics chart.
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.
We offer a full range of harbour moorings from walk-ashore pontoons to middle of the Harbour drying moorings that are served by our water taxi. For winter storage we also provide on-shore facilities with electricity and water. Please phone the Harbour Office on 01983 872828 for more details.
