I reviewed these notes in September 2022. Telephone numbers have changed, and I've added links to the IOM main harbours page. There are no longer any Covid restrictions in force for visiting the IOM. Prices have changed across the whole island for visiting boats.

Notes reviewed in August 2021. I've included a website address in the Rules and Regs Section above for the IOM Covid regs for Island visitors. Prices have increased a bit.. If you consult the IOM gov pages for mooring fees remember that they are quoted without VAT.
