I reviewed these notes in early September 2022. The boat fire at Conwy on the last Sunday of August did hardly any damage to the infrastructure of that Marina. The two marinas are in competition, and we have given the prices but it's probably a swings and roundabouts thing.

I reviewed these notes in August 2021. All the links have been changed and a link to the Conwy approach chart provided. The link given by Me n my Moody (below) works but they do not carry a date on the buoyage positions
Prices have been updated

There is a list of buoys and marks plus a link to a useful "chart" of the buoyed approaches here:

Deganwy Marina is under new management but essentially remains the same. At the time of going to press (mid April 2018) they were still organising their website but prices were available. Otherwise very little has changed.
Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. Quay Marine now has its own dredger so those problems are largely reduced. I have corrected the note re wall collapse - never happened!! Conwy has added a provisions shop. Prices have been updated.

All tide access
Written by Bryant | 23rd Feb 2015
"I can assure you that Conwy marina never had all-tide access! True, nature has deposited silt in the basin and at the entrance, but access has always been more restrictive than access to the river.

Passage through the Swellies to Caernarfon via the Swatch to make it on a single tide has never been possible for a boat leaving the marina. The only option is to have a fast power boat.

I was sailing from Conwy as the tunnel was built, so have a certain amount of knowledge of the area."

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 20th Feb 2013
These notes were updated by Don T on the 20th February 2013. Prices now reflect those expected for 2013. The only change since the last update is that the Fairway buoy has been repositioned (and, of course, may be repositioned again!) and the C16 buoy is now lit.
