Summer 2018

Water taxi charge now reduced to £1, multiple ticket purchase reduces this to 60p per trip. Fresh water is also available on the main waste pontoon in the river next to the fuel barge. 'Resnova' restaurant has now disappeared for good!

Harbour dues have gone up to 85p per metre per night; this is inclusive of VAT. Apart from that very little has changed here.

Update Spring 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 3rd May 2016
These notes were reviewed b y Don in May 2016. Noss Marina's plans are once again on hold. Dart Yacht Marina has dropped its prices (when they have room) The harbour tariff has changed and you need to look at their website to work out what you will be charged where.

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 24th Jan 2013
The harbour notes for Dartmouth were updated on 24th January 2013. The only changes were to the prices which were updated where known. The harbour dues rose to 75p per meter in 2012 and will remain so for 2013 but there will be slight increases to mooring fees on the harbour facilities. The marina prices have all been updated to 2013 rates.

29/8 – Dartmouth – Darmtmouth is breath taking much the same as Plymouth, there is beautiful surrounding hills scattered with oddly coloured house that over-look the entrance, There is a fuel barge near the marina and the visitors pontoon is the first pontoon you get to before the marina, the staff were okay but the location of the marina makes it a great place to visit.
