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 they took us to our mooring. You could not have better service.
There is 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 8 am to 8 pm each day depending on the time of the year. You can pay there, get information on the TiBus and where to go – everything. They will even organise hire cars (some are available from the car park) and any other requirements as listed below. Excellent service.
