I reviewed these notes in early October 2022. No Changes apart from prices

I reviewed these notes at the end of September 2021. This Marina has now become part of the "Boatfolk" organisation with changes to their website links. They have a new pricing structure which offers deals covering all their marinas (11 of them at the moment) and it also does away with the minimum charge. The latest UKHO charts do not show the full marina layout but that can be found here and on their own website.

Portishead Marina is now well established and provides everything you could want. Their website has lots of advice which complements the advice given here. The videos on their website are very useful. Prices have increased.
Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2106. They've added some more pontoons and upped their prices.

These notes were updated by Don T on the 19th February 2013. Prices were updated for the 2013 season. NB it is no longer necessary for yachties to talk to Bristol VTS at all, except when emerging from the River Avon, but it is still mandatory for you to monitor channel 12 in these waters.
