Dive Boats are not welcome at this harbour
Written by Phil D | 31st Jul 2023
The Harbourmaster has banned all Dive Boats from this harbour and will robustly refuse entry.

A delightful villlage, but very limited anchorage/mooring
Written by Sadoldsamurai | 1st Feb 2020
I row with the Craster Coastal rowing club.
There is currently a freshwater tap across the road, and this (with an extension hose) can feed another hose which runs under the road through the stream culvert.
The Jolly Fisherman pub, 50 m from the harbour serves excellent beer and meals, particularly fish based.
Offshore winds are common, and because of the location of the Carrs there is frequently dirty water at the entrance.

Update Spring 2019

These notes were reviewed in April 2019. I've added a contact number and noted that there is not a fresh water tap on the wall. Charts for this harbour are non-existent but if you use the GE satellite picture the extent and position of the reefs outside can be judged.

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 8th Apr 2013
These notes were reviewed by Don T on the 8th April 2013. Nothing has changed but recent contact with a sailor who sails these waters indicates that the local fraternity do not consider this (or any of the other anchorages between Amble and Eyemouth, mentioned in some pilot books) as viable for on-passage breaks.
