Update April 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 5th Apr 2022
I reviewed these notes in early April 2022. Basically this "haven" is for the use of local fishermen and should not be considered as a passage harbour; far better to anchor in Sandown Bay or continue round to Bembridge.

These notes were reviewed in March 2018. There are now more pontoons (see text) but still very little space. The visitors buoys which used to be outside have long since been removed as no one was using them and they cost a mint to upkeep.

These notes were reviewed in April 2014. There is an additional charging band being applied to an alongside berth on the pontoon this year

The harbour notes for Ventnor were updated by Don T on 21st January 2013. The visitors buoys which used to be available are no longer there. There is still no chart available but we have inserted a Google link for a view of the harbour. Prices have been updated for 2013.
