Pic or Map of Boulogne

Not the prettiest of towns from the marina, Boulogne is a pretty functional port. There's a good long beach though it's not served by any bars that we could see. The old town is lovely and well worth a walk up the hill for a visit to grab a drink or food.


Please provide a good map or chart that clearly shows details (depths, where to dock, scale etc.) of the harbor.

Give charts applicable to this port or refer to a Chart section of another page (Country or Region) that lists the charts.

Before entering the port you must contact port control on VHF Ch.12. If you are unfamiliar with the port the 'vigie du port' will provide guidance by radio.

There is a sandbank inside the port that's well marked on charts that should be avoided.


Boulogne is a port of entry/exit to France.

Submit details about facilities for checking in - location of immigration & customs, etc.


There are a number of finger pontoons that will suit yachts of up to around 40-45ft. Yachts larger than this may be able to fit on the hammerheads or pontoon off a boat that is already moored there.

The marina can be contacted on VHF 9 and is open until around 6pm. After this time you're on your own and they will cover off mooring fees in the morning.

Beware that there may be a significant amount of bird droppings, do you bit and give the pontoon a quick hose down.
