ST HELIER MARINA
MARINA GATE
The Marina pond is maintained at a level of 5 metres (16.5ft) above chart datum by means of a sill gate. International Port Traffic Signals and depth gauges show when entry and exit are possible. This can be taken as approximately 3 hours either side of high water, the actual period differing slightly with Springs and Neaps. A digital gauge showing the depth of water (in metres) above the sill gate is situated at the entrance to the Marina
ENTRY TO THE MARINA When the Marina is accessible, craft will be directed by the Port Control signals—and also the Harbour Control launches at peak periods—to transit the Commercial harbour and proceed to the area reserved for visiting craft. Craft arriving when the sill gate is closed or when the main harbour is closed to pleasure craft for the movement of commercial shipping, traffic should proceed to the Yacht Basin which is situated on the starboard hand immediately before the Victoria Pierhead. Entry to La Collette Yacht Basin is available at all states of tide but caution should be used during spring tide low water periods where the approach channel fairway buoys should be followed
HOLDING AREAS There is a large holding pontoon to port of the Marina entrance at the head of the Commercial Harbour. When access to the Marina is possible, the Marina Staff will assist visiting craft to transit the commercial harbour when as previously mentioned, the Port Control Signals must be closely observed
VISITING CRAFT: BERTHS Visitors are normally accommodated on Piers A, D, E, F and G which are in the northern part of the Marina. Pier D & E have individual finger pontoons suitable for craft up to 11 metres in length and Piers F and G are used for alongside berthing with craft lying 2 or 3 deep if necessary during busy periods. The depth in the Marina is a minimum of 6ft with an area of 9 ft depth in the vicinity of the entrance and Pier Any craft whose draught is over 2m or is over 12.5m in length should therefore advise the marina office on or prior to arrival so that a suitable berth may be allocated
