I reviewed these notes in July 2022. The progress in this harbour over the last ten years has been impressive; it's not a large town and they have all worked hard to arrive where they are now. It's still only £2.70 a metre all in. Have a look.
Update Early Summer 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 25th Jun 2021
These notes were reviewed in June 2021. No changes, not even prices. Still no diesel.
Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 15th May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. The harbour is closed to visitors for most of May for dredging. The channel is being dredged to 2m below CD and the Fish Harbour to 1.5 m below. The new Admiralty chart is showing 0.8m so you should change your charts. Still no diesel.
'The Quay Zone'
Written by SeaFury | 14th Aug 2017
The indoor activities block is now open. As well as the pool it has a large kids climbing area, next to a cafe, a gym and free WiFi.
Written by Don Thomson | 6th Apr 2017
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2017. As has been noted below the amenities block is up and running with a laundrette. Roger who has been the HM here for thirty years retires at the beginning of this season so we wish him well.

Girvan Marina
Written by taniwha | 25th Aug 2015
There is an excellent new toilet and shower block in operation. The code for this block is not the same as the code for the marina gate so see harbour master.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 27th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. The hoped for amenities block is nearly finished and the 2015 prices added. The 2015 Admiralty chart does not reflect the new layout
Improvements 2013/14
Written by dononshytalk | 10th Mar 2014
Update March 2014
The new pontoons are now in place and our notes have been edited to indicate this. Note that the 2014 Admiralty chart of Girvan is out of date.
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 11th Mar 2013
The notes for Girvan were updated by Don T in March 2013. Improvements to the facilities for visiting yachts are ongoing and up to date info can be obtained from Roddy the HM who is still in post.
