I reviewed these notes at the end of September 2022. No changes.

We have confirmed and put the new harbour dues in the text. They haven't improved the facilities here
Revised and Cheaper harbour dues for visiting boats
Written by OldManOfTheHills | 1st Oct 2017
As of Sunday 1st October 2017, the harbour authorities have reviewed the rates and its now a flat £15 per visiting boat. And the Old Ship Aground has reopened so at least one can get a drink and food without walking into town

Eccessive harbour fees and very limited facilities
Written by OldManOfTheHills | 27th Sep 2017
The harbour fees are now posted at the harbour as £3 per metres as of September 2017, and this was also verbally stated by the Harbour Master, (not £1.80 as on outdated 2014/2015 fee section of harbour website) This despite lack of fuelling or showers. The Harbour master is only available during council hours and then not always at high tides and the facilities are much poorer than at Watchet Marina which is £2.50 a metre or Ilfracombe which is £1.50 a metre, both of which make more effort to welcome boats.

Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. There is a new Harbour Master here now and the only real change at the moment is to the price of a night's stop.
