I reviewed these notes in July 2021. This marina has become very popular and it is now very necessary to pre-book your visit. Their price is still fixed but is expected to increase in 2022.
Update Summer 2019

These notes were reviewed in June 2019. The visitor's rates remain the same at £3.00 a metre and everything remains as it was.
Update November 2017

They've made an unannounced increase in their berthing charges to £3.00 per metre. Shore power is still extra.

I visited here last summer. Very impressive. No changes to our notes.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 3rd Apr 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. We have noted the new buoyage in the bay round the corner from the marina. Prices are being held again at £2.15 per metre. The visitor berths are now on the western side of the pontoons.

"Visited Portavadie marina for the first time in August 2013, a fantastic location with excellent facilities. Surprisingly clear of midges, not sure if that was purely my good fortune. The bathrooms are most probably the
best I have ever seen at a marina.
