November 2016 – Very helpful marina staff although we were criticised for not listening out on VHF Channel 9. We normally listen out on VHF Channel 16 and would only have used VHF Channel 9 to call up the marina officials if required. Please listen out on VHF 9 when arriving at Saint Quay, or even better, have your radio on dual watch.

Saint Quay Portrieux – Port D’armor is an excellent base for your boating. It is a large (1040 boats) non-tidal marina with excellent facilities and very helpful, English speaking marina staff.

We were met as we approached Pontoon 7 – the visitors pontoon by the Marina’s orange rib and shown to our finger. You could not have better service. Same again in 2015.

The staff all speak fluent English and are really helpful. They have even added a “log cabin” (a wooden hut) at the top of the visitors’ ramp so you do not have to go to the harbour office and it is manned from something like 8 am to 8 pm each day. You can pay there, get information on the TiBus and where to go – everything.

The new Log Cabin well manned all day with helpful English speaking staff

The facilities are large and clean and there are good restaurants and cafes at the marina and the old harbour. Good beaches and coastal walks complete the package.

The fuelling pontoon



The marina office – Capitainerie


Saint Quay is also an excellent base for the Fishing Fleet

The facilities are large and clean with plenty of showers. No jetons, just put the money in the slot as you go in the door and select your cubical. You have one minute before the hot water starts and then 7 mins for your shower.…
