The new waiting pontoon is now in place outside the main visitors’ marina. The pontoon looks longer than before but the biggest change is the removal of the old roll-on roll-off ramp.

Jersey’s marina is well located and very convenient for the town of St Helier. The marina staff are all very helpful. Note: Entry cards are now provided to the facilities and the visitors’ marina – so access is back to 24 x 7 which is good news.
The weather is transmitted on VHF channel 18 on a regular basis
