Additional info:


When approaching Brighton Marina please call on VHF channel 80 or 01273 819919. The entrance lies between the East and West Breakwater arms and is dredged to 2.0m C.D., but storms tend to drive sand in to form a bank just south of the end of the Eastern Breakwater and shoaling may occur in the entrance channel between dredges. For the latest position, contact the marina reception. The natural channel is buoyed by red and green markers. When approaching from the west, please give the end of the Western Breakwater a wide berth to avoid exiting traffic. In heavy weather many vessels choose to approach from the south which avoids much of the backlash from the breakwaters.The entrance channel is buoyed to the inner entrance,which is marked by fixed red and green vertical lights.

Reviews for Brighton Marina
Large Marina, OK facilities, 2015-07-01
Captain: , Brighton Marina (30)

Very large marina but poorly mainatained.

Toilets and showers are generally clean (except when very busy and over night) but poorly maintained. Showers are either too hot, too cold or not enough water flow.

The marina security gates are often broken.

The main channel is not properly dredged and you cannot enetr or exit the marina either side of low tide, despite being advertised as a full access marina.

Great stopover if you like restaurants., 2013-04-12
Captain: , Southampton , UK (1327)

This is a man made marina, by which I mean they have built a big wall and dredged to make it deep enough for the Marina and it is not in a natural harbour. This means this is not the pretiest Marina unless you like looking at a large wall.

It is however a fantastic place to stop over as you take a trip along the south coast. There are loads of restaurants, and it is about 10/15 minute walk to Brighton High Street.

Would not make this place my home but would definatley put it on the stopover list.

Big Marina with a tight entrance, 2011-03-05
Captain: , Swansea U.K. (140)

lots of resturants and a super market close by but i have to agree with the previous reviews that it is a bit bland in the marina its self. You can get a deal on fuel if you take a birth over night there which is handy to know.

Nearest south coast marina to London, 2010-08-20
Captain: , Gosport (294)

This is the nearest South coast Marina to central London. Facilities are OK and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby in the popular marina complex. Entrance can be difficult in rough seas.

Brighton Marina, 2010-08-17
Captain: , UK South Coast (534)

Facilities fine and a million nearby restaurants. So lots to say in it's favour. However it's a bit 'Stalinist concrete-esque' if you see what I mean. Very shallow on the way in. Always double check with the marina office if you're coming in at low tide and think it might be a bit tight. I'd seriously consider visiting Sussex YC a little way West in preference.

Nice marina, 2008-03-19
Captain: , Eastbourne (154)

Nice marina but needs a face lift.
