Visitor pontoon locations


As you enter the Harbour entrance, the visitor pontoons are located on the starboard side (along Haldon Pier) and on the port side (V section of Town Dock). Large vessels should contact the harbour via VHF channel 14 prior to entering the harbour. See also the Torquay harbour facilities page.

Torquay visitors pontoon (port)


Follow the main fairway, keeping the Marina to port, and the fishing vessel basin to starboard. Then direct in front are two pontoons, the one to the right is the Harbour authority pontoon. There is limited space and vessels often are required to raft out. See also the Brixham harbour facilities page.


As you enter the Harbour there is a small seasonal pontoon on the port hand side. This is for short period use only and mariners are advised Paignton is a drying Harbour. See also the Paignton harbour facilities page.

At both Torquay and Brixham harbours there are private Marinas run by MDL who also provide visitor moorings. Please contact them on VHF channel 80 for prices and availability.
