Carrickfergus is situated on the North Shore of Belfast Lough.

Opened in 1985 it provides good shelter with its stone breakwaters. The staff are extremely helpful and the facility block provides toilets, showers and laundry facilities

Carrick Marine Projects are on hand to help with any repairs that you may have to make and they also operate the boat hoist which is situated in the harbour as is the fuel berth. Rory, Wendy or Norman can usually be found around the boatyard or in their office near the fuel birth in the Harbour.

The marina and harbour are the centrepiece of the rapidly expanding waterfront area. Restaurants, bars, a multi screen cinema and co-op superstore are all with in very easy walking distance as is Carrickfergus Sailing Club where visitors will be made welcome.

The Marina can accommodate 280 boats in pontoon berths and the basin is dredged to give depths of up to 2.3 metres (7'6") at L.W.S. The entrance to the Marina is situated at the eastern end of the basin and is open to the South West. The ends of the two breakwaters are marked with red and green beacons showing Qk. FI.R 3m and G 8m 3M. Red not showing from 245 to 305

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale
