Welcome to Bembridge Harbour

THE RULE OF 6: please be aware that Government Regulations, effective from 14th September, limit group gatherings to a maximum of 6 people.  When using outside seating, and in all areas of Bembridge Harbour Authority property, please adhere to this LEGAL REQUIREMENT.

New fingers installed along the Duver Marina visitors' pontoon allow for direct access onto the main pontoon, enabling safe social distancing.  Please click here to book your visitor berth online   

Information on opening times for a selection of local restaurants as well as Brading Haven Yacht Club and Bembridge Sailing Club is available here

COVID-19 measures are in place on the pontoons and across the site - safety is our absolute top priority.  A 2m social distancing policy is in place and we ask that all visitors to the site please respect this policy for the safety of our staff, customers and harbour users.  

One person only at a time please in the Berthing Office / Galley Locker and office areas after hand sanitisation, and we now require face coverings to be worn (unless exempt).  Our staff are all here to help, but please remember to keep your distance.     

The Harbour Office is open (Mon-Frid 0900-1700) and berthing staff are on site 7 days a week.

The independent onsite Duver Café is open 7 days a week from 0800 - take a look at their Facebook page (Duver Cafe).        

The Duver Marina visitors' toilet and shower facilities were completely refurbished over the winter and are open, with Covid-19 safety measures in place, for the use of berth holders and visiting boats only.  

The Water Taxi is available to Harbour customers only.  Covid-19 safety measures are in place on board and passenger numbers are limited to enable 2m social distancing.  Please give advance notice of your requirement, as staff now engaged in winter maintenance work may be elsewhere on site.  

The Harbour and/or BBS can be contacted by email: office@bembridgeharbour.co.uk and office@bembridgeboatstorage.co.uk

We'd like to thank all our visitors and Harbour users for their patience and understanding throughout the season, and for engaging so readily with the various safety measures and restrictions which have been put in place.

Our 2021 programme of events has now been confirmed and details can be found on the event pages.      

Our nominated charity will once again be The Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy, for whom our  visitors and Harbour users have helped us raise over £17,600 over the last 3 years. To read about this amazing charity take a look at their page.  

Following a complete upgrade of hard/software during 2019, we now offer FREE WiFi to our visitors. The code can be obtained from the Berthing/Harbour Office on arrival.  

For Facebook followers we will be continuing our monthly Draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth during 2020/21 .... 

For visitors new to the Harbour we recommend a look at the Navigation Section, where you'll find a pictorial guide to safe pilotage in the Harbour that can be printed off for use on board. There is also a video guide of the entrance channel.  

The Harbour is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and nearby Brading Marshes are home to the first RSPB site on the Island. There are many picturesque walks in and around the area, historic sites to visit, beautiful beaches to enjoy and a busy Harbour where there's always something to watch. The villages of Bembridge and St Helens offer a rich variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and are well worth exploring. Visit our Local Information section for more details.  Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club both offer their facilities to visiting yachtsmen - details here.

See you soon ...
