Please work closely with the Marina Staff on duty to make these facilities work smoothly for everyone, whilst we also continue to welcome the many visiting yachtsmen to the island each year. You'll find the team out on the water or on the pontoons throughout the summer. We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your help in making multi-use of this space a success for all.

From time-to-time, especially during July and August, capacity may be at its maximum in all the visitor areas of St. Peter Port harbours. During these times, the Marina Staff will advise local customers if the use of visitor berths is temporarily unavailable.

These layby areas are designed for occasional use only so that all our local mooring holders can make use of them. Vessels left unattended in any of these areas without being checked in with the Marina Staff may be towed at the owners expense.

If you any questions about using these facilities, please contact Guernsey Marina on VHF Channel 80.

Albert Pier

The cruise tender pontoon at the end of the Albert Pier is designated as a temporary secure area during cruise ship operations. On other days, local vessels may use the pontoon for quick drop offs and pick-ups only, with prior permission from the Marina Staff or Guernsey VTS. This pontoon is strictly for the safe and quick transfer of people and not for any other use, without permission from the Marina Staff.

Boats should not be left unattended on this pontoon. Unattended vessels will be removed and towed at the owner's expense.

Slipways and steps

Slips and steps in the harbours are for general harbour use. Boats may not be left unattended and if found blocking the slips or steps will be removed and towed at owner's expense. Notices are displayed to this effect.

Users should be aware that the lower ends of slipways can be fouled with weed and may be slippery underfoot.
