About the Marina


The Fleetwood Marina lies within an enclosed dock off the River Wyre, formerly the Wyre Dock which was historically known for its fishing. The marina is owned and operated by Associated British Ports (ABP) and its capacity is steadily rising. By 1994 it had 300 berths and by the spring of 2009 it expanded to 420 berths. The entire marina forms part of a 50 acre residential, retail and leisure development called Mariners Quay which all adds to the attraction of the neighbouring seaside town of Blackpool and the sands of Morecambe Bay. Generally marinas are a bit thin on the ground in the NW of England so this marina provides a excellent platform from which to explore and cruise along the Cumbrian Coast and its well situated for reaching the Isle of Man and the havens of North Wales.
 

Marina Approaches


Arriving at the Fairway Buoy about -1hr HW is ideal if bound for the marina and the sea channel is well lit and buoyed from the Fairway Buoy all the way to the marina with sufficient depth at most states of the tide. Vessels making for the marina should contact the Fleetwood Dock when passing No.11 Beacon Pile, on VHF Ch12, call sign 'Fleetwood Dock Radio'. Fleetwood is a commercial port with large RoRo vessels plying in and out of the river, therefore should there be any shipping movements, a flashing yellow light is displayed from the Ro Ro berth. There is a long training wall on the east side of the entrance which protrudes out the East Jetty for some 2 cables, but its well marked and lit by red piles. Access through the marina lock gates is ±1.5hrs HW.
