Approach

The entrance dries at low water, only attempt entry 2 hours before or after high water. Do not attempt in strong NW through to NE winds. Beware of groyne on the south side of the approach which covers at half tide.
The marina (inner harbor) is protected by a cill which has a bridge over it. It is best to call the harbormaster before your arrival as the bridge at the marina entrance has to be opened. This is either opened by the harbormaster on-site, or remotely from Douglas Harbor.
Important: Be aware that the actual cill opening and closing times can be very different to the published times. Always talk to the HM to avoid an unpleasant surprise.

Attractions

Peel castle is impressive. For the bikers there's the annual TT race which uses a road track around the island, attracts many hundreds of bikers, both professional and the general public. The island itself is very scenic, great views, and many historical buildings.

The museum in Peel on the history of the Isle of Man is very good.

Very nice bike (as in Pedal) trails along the old railway tracks.

Reviews for Peel Marina, Isle of Man
Peel Harbour, 2013-09-02
Captain: , Conwy, N. Wales (14507)

Despite our entire stay here being marred by rain (i.e. standard British summer weather), we loved Peel. The marina has been recently built in the old harbour, which is right in the centre of town. This can get noisy (especially when the bikes are in town) but the buzz here was infectious. There are bars and restaurants along the quay and the small but pretty town has a few more, as well as a selection of shops and a couple of supermarkets. The facilities are good, though the electric showers were very weedy. Don't miss the Manxkippers traditional smokehouse at the top of the harbour - fabulous smoked kippers and bacon.

Be aware that the cill gate opening times can be very different to the predicted, published times. Always talk to the HM to discuss when the cill is likely to open and close. We were very nearly caught out last time and got out minutes before it shut - almost an hour before it was scheduled to close - and the weather was quite normal, no particularly strong winds or high / low pressure systems.



Peel is a great cruising stop, 2013-08-22

We liked Peel.
Castle is interesting as is the display of Manx history, and the smell of kippers being smoked.
I am puzzled at Niglels comment above about lack of facilties. If he means boatyard, travelift etc, OK
However, I do not expect major yacht repair services in a downtown dock.
Entertainmnet, eating, daily shopping was fine.
Good biking/walking on the disused railway to Douglas

Like Douglas, not much in the way of facilities at Peel, but the town is more attractive than Douglas. Is very popular in summer, and can be very crowded
