1 June 2024. Please see marinas.digimap.gg for the latest information and the new procedure for entering and exiting marinas. It is good news and thank you to the French authorities and the ports and marina officials who worked so hard to introduce these new rules.

Update April 2024

For the season 2024 we should have, in our building, a laundry.

We should also have a bread dispenser? A device with fresh bread inside….

During July and August, the marina office will be open between 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM. During this time, a dinghy will always be at the entrance of the harbour to welcome visitors and show them a berth.

Currently, we should be a port of entry as last year, but I am still waiting for the customs autorisation.

When you arrive in Lezardrieux, if you call the Marina office on VHF channel 9, someone will answer, will come on the water to welcome you, guide you to your berth and give you a hand for mooring.

Lezardrieux form Lezardrieux Préavis entrée sortie


Lezardrieux is special. You pass the amazing Ile de Brehats and then travel up the beautiful Tieux river. It is like a different world.

The pontoons are in the river and can be accessed any tide, although ideally you should more at low or high water due to the tide.

The small town has a couple of restaurants and it is an easy taxi ride to Paimpol to the ferry to Ile de Brehats. Also, a good overnight stop before the journey up the river to Pontrieux.


News August 2023

New extension to Pontoon A – commercial vessels only 2023

The visitors’ pontoon is to the north. The end of pontoon A has been heavily modified to accept offshore wind farm service craft with high fixed fendering on the landward (West side). No visitors here. 

We saw two large yellow catamarans on the river which appear to be the wind farm service craft.

Similarly, the old sand dock to the North is now occupied by a wind farm support dock. The old green sand barge sits rusting away on a mooring on the other side of the river a rather sorry site.

A new fuelling dock with easy access sits just to the South of the wind farm servicing yard.

We were met by a harbour assistant in the obligatory red plastic tender.

Beware berthing at half tide – there is quite a tide – especially towards the end of the pontoons. Best moor near low or high water when the direction of the river flow is changing

Lezardrieux is a great place. A lovely trip up the Trieux river, fairly easy navigation with a Chart Plotter, and a non-tidal “marina”. Some tide flows through the pontoons so best approach around high or low water – but nowhere near as bad as Treguier.

The speed limit is 3 knots upriver from Les Perdrix and 5 knots from Vieille de Bodic starboard beacon tower (as you enter the Trieux river) to Les Perdrix although the local boats do not seem to obey them.

Harbourmasters office is at the top of the visitors’ pontoon. Normally, no one ever meets you, but a report from August 2023 did say they were met by a red dinghy. It appears to be best to moor on a free finger on the first pontoon anywhere east of the customs/police boat. The fingers are quite short and only have a loop at the end to put your rope through, but they are OK. There is room for a large boat, or 3 smaller boats on the T piece at the end but again the boats do not seem to be managed very well.

Facilities are OK. They have been repainted and were in better condition in 2017. A bit dark and a jeton is not required for the showers anymore.

The Internet is now a quick process and worked OK.

There is a “shortcut” path from behind the boat works, which comes out behind the church.

The Marina manager said there is room for 50 visitors. There are the hammerhead and a few berths on the visitor’s pontoon. There is also the centre waiting pontoon where you can moor but no electric and it would be impossible to row ashore when the tide is running. He said you can moor in the inside marina. This has never been offered to use but worth enquiring if you are staying for a few days. Perhaps enquire in advance.

Pilot Guide

If you leave around half tide going up, motorboats will have a good following tide all the way back to Guernsey.
