The marina has nearly 200 fully services pontoon berths sheltered by its own natural habitat where the absence of any harbour wall or breakwater provides uninterrupted views of Britains finest salt marshes and it abundance of wild life.
The marina does dry out, but there are 100 or so swinging moorings accessible at all states of the tide. Don’t be put off by the marinas ancient heritage, since its facilities and services are equipped to cater for all the needs of the 21st century.
