Approaching By Sea

Deep waters

The approach to the marina is straightforward and navigable at all states of the tide. Plymouth Sound can be entered via the Western or Eastern channels which are well lit and buoyed with no real hazards. Head for the Smeaton's Tower situated on Plymouth Hoe. Once the Mount Batten breakwater is passed to starboard, follow the Cattewater channel, where you will see Plymouth Yacht Haven on your starboard side in the lee of the peninsula. There is not less than 2.4 metres of depth at MLWS with staff on-site 24/7 to provide berthing assistance.
