Reviews for Port Dinorwic Marina
Beautiful corner on the Strait, 2014-05-28
Captain: , Conwy, N. Wales (13850)

Port Dinorwic is in two parts - a drying outer harbour with pontoons and an inner harbour (marina) accessible via a sea lock, where you either tie up along the walls or raft against other boats. The inner harbour is further split by a lifting road bridge.

Access is mostly by locking in or out, but on high tides there is sometimes a period of 'free flow' when both lock gates are open. When approaching, be patient when calling on Ch 80 as sometimes the dock keeper is busy - someone will usually respond if you call again in 5 minutes as there is always a staff member on duty when the tide is high.

The whole inner harbour area is very pretty - a steep tree-lined bank on one side and a steep cliff / wall up to town on the other. Further up, beyond the lifting bridge, there is a disused dry dock and beyond that a short walk up the stream, from where you can loop back over the top and back through town.

The marina has recently changed hands, but that didn't seem to affect the personal service - Andy helped us moor up, gave us a cup of tea on arrival and was very friendly. The facilities were fine, although there was a definite feel that money needs to be spent to spruce them up a bit - the showers and toilets, though working fine (nice hot showers) are old and a bit grubby.

All in all, Port Dinorwic left us feeling we wanted to stay longer and wanting to go back. With the new owners the harbour will hopefully go from strength to strength.
