St Peter Port, Guernsey’s capital, has been a port since Roman times and the picturesque sea front area is still at the heart of this pretty harbour town. A wander around the cobbled streets reveals some of the history and fascinating heritage of this beautiful island and there is much to see and do.
Guernsey Harbours, based at St Julian’s Emplacement in the town, are responsible for the operation of the ports of St Peter Port and St Sampsons. They can be contacted on VHF Ch 80 or 37(M).
Victoria Marina is accessible 2.5 hours either side of high water over a sill 4.2m above chart datum. Maximum LOA is 12.8m with a maximum draft of 1.8m. Entry is controlled by marina staff and a waiting pontoon is available. All services are provided including laundry and WiFi.
When the marina is full or your craft is unable to enter, pontoons are available in The Pool to the east of Victoria Marina entrance. There is a dinghy landing at the end of Victoria Pier and you may use all the facilities of Victoria Marina.
Queen Elizabeth II Marina is primarily for local boats though larger visiting craft may be accommodated by prior arrangement only. All services are provided including laundry and WiFi and there is a fuel berth just inside the marina entrance.
An anchorage can be found in Havelet Bay which is sheltered from south westerly gales though it may be crowded in summer. Avoid the power cables. A dinghy landing is available just west of Castle Cornet.
Diesel and petrol are available from the fuel berth on Castle Pier but it is accessible only from/to half tide.
