Launch and recovery

There are two slipways in regular use within the harbour, the main facility being located on East Quay, whilst the slipway on West Quay is of a lesser gradient. When using either slipway, please take time to read the safety advice notice. Check the suitability and road-worthiness of your trailer, check that your boat is sufficiently secured and double check that the tow hitch is safely attached with a
safety chain applied. Ensure that you have sufficient helpers and each person is competent in what they are to doing. 

Once launching is complete, all vehicles should be removed from the harbour as soon as possible. Trailer storage is limited, so please contact the Harbour Office for further information.


Please note that the fuelling of boats on the quayside at Paignton is prohibited. However, fuel is available at Torquay and Brixham harbours. 

Water and electricity 

Water is on supply from points on North Quay, East Quay and at the head of the East Quay slipway. Electric cards and tokens are available from the Harbour Office.

Waste disposal 

For your thoughtful disposal of waste, there are several bins located around the harbour.  Should you wish to dispose of waste oil or contaminated fuel please contact the Harbour Office. 

Personal safety

A number of lifebuoys are strategically located around the harbour. When walking around the harbour areas please keep dogs on a lead and keep a close eye on children. There are many harbour attractions to look at but kindly respect the commercial operations on
the quay and abide by any safety instructions.
