Rules & Regulations

Look out for a red flashing light or red flag on the promenade behind the harbour entrance; when this is showing it means it’s unsafe to enter either the bay or the harbour (if you haven’t already realised this yourself!). Do not use the fresh water supply to wash down your boat – they threaten a fine of £150 if you do.


Off shore rocks at Burnmouth 2 miles south of here. The Hurkars and Luff Hard Rock in the close approaches

Berwick is better

Called the Harbour master about visiting but it all seemed too much trouble. Berwick was more welcoming and has a new pontoon.

Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in Spring 2016. I still haven't ventured this far South so this continues to be an almanac stub. Prices have changed for 2016
Not for the faint hearted.

In fair conditions Eyemouth is a relatively easy entrance once you have negotiated the offshore reefs and 'Luff Hard' rock. Sort of gives you a clue don't you think. The way in leads between a pair of walls know as the 'Canyon' and then appears to open out but beware the submerged posts by the surge beach to starboard. The pontoons are further down past the fish dock and lifeboat to port.
