Rules & Regulations

The buoyed channel in Belfast Lough is a “narrow channel” within the meaning of Rule 9 of the Collision Regs, so keep right and don’t get in the way of large ships...Within Carrickfergus Marina there is a 4knot speed limit and manoeuvring under sail alone is not permitted.


The five metre contour line is a fair way out from the coast so have a care if you have a long fin keel there are 2m soundings in places like the Carrickfergus Bank. There is also a sandbank stretching across the approaches through which is dredged the approach channel itself; be aware of shallows to both port and starboard in the latter stages of the approach

I'm in the marina as I type this, and they are doing a buy-one-night-get-one-night-free deal, which is nice and makes it exactly half the price of Bangor for a two-night stay. They had this deal on when I was last here in 2014, so it may be a standard thing.

I reviewed these notes in July 2022. There is no Marina website as such. Their prices have changed a little otherwise it's pretty much the same. There's a newish Lit SHM (QG) off Cloghan Jetty which is not yet on the UKHO charts.
Update Early Summer 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 27th Jul 2021
I reviewed these notes in June 2021. Very little has changed apart from the prices
Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 2nd May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. Having had a few years where the chandlery situation was a bit muddled, things have improved markedly; Carrick Marine Projects has upped their game and have a full yachting chandlery and boatyard services. They are still holding their prices to those charged a few years ago but you now have to get your shore power on a metered card system. New charts have been uploaded.

The VHF channel for the Marina is Channel 80. Prices for 2017/18 is £2.70 per mt and electricity is charged at 10p per KWh. The BOGOF is still available for those who pay on arrival. There is now an on site Chandlery within the boatyard and operated by Carrick Marine Projects

Carrickfergus Marina approaches

The leading light (sector light) has recently been changed and is now on the seaward pile of the outer pontoon hammerhead.
Written by Don Thomson | 5th Apr 2017
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2017. I have amended the price for an overnight visit but otherwise little has changed. There is no dedicated chandlery here; the boatyard has a small stock but it is hit and miss that they would have what you want.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 19th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. No changes, not even to prices
Update November 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 5th Nov 2013
These notes were updated by Don Thomson on the 5th November 2013. The only changes were to prices which were updated to 2013; they expect those to increase in 2014.
