General Description

Ryde Harbour is a very small development lying to East of Ryde Pier (with its ferry terminal) and adjacent to the hovercraft landing ramp. The 150 berth harbour can handle up to 70 visitors, and is only really suitable for small craft able to take the ground. Boats of up to 1.5 m draft can be handled at neap tides, slightly more at Springs.  ... read more

Ryde Harbour Update
Written by Robert1962 | 31st Aug 2017
Two issues have arisen this year to give visitors a problem when using Ryde Harbour. The first is that a sand bar has built over the bouyed entrance and vessels would be advised to navigate alongside the pier (to the west of the entrance till they are adjacent to No:3 bouy and then head towards the harbour entrance. At high tide (neaps) I was showing 1.2 on the sounder when I passed over the bar. Also a boat fire has caused serious damage to the visitors pontoon, severely restricting the amount of visiting craft able to get a berth. Call the Harbour Master prior to your visit to get an update on the situation - 31/08/17

Word from the HM
Written by Bryant | 11th Apr 2011
Fuel is not available alongside, the nearest garage is 1.2 miles away which means a taxi ride or walk there is a pub half way. Visitors who need marine repairs contact harbour staff for local information.

Provisioning is straightforward enough with The Coop perhaps the closest supermarket with local shops across the road.

There is a huge Tesco's superstore just outside of Ryde , and its open 24 hours a day (except Sundays) a taxi or bus ride may be necessary. "
