We look forward to welcoming visitors over these quieter, cooler months when calm weather can make it an absolute joy to be here! Walk ashore winter berths are currently available on the Duver pontoon, with mid-Harbour "trot" moorings from April offering a very cost effective mooring with a complementary water taxi service. For Facebook followers we are running a monthly draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth ....
The 2016 Bembridge Harbour Family Fun Weekend is from 22nd to 24th July - make sure it's in your diary! Our charity in 2016 is Ryde Inshore Rescue - as an Independent Lifeboat service they rely solely on donations for their £30,000 annual running costs and we are delighted to support them.
During the 2015 season we launched our 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.
We offer a full range of harbour moorings from walk-ashore pontoons, including our "Premier" fingers which are bookable on-line, 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.
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 ...
