More notes about the marina

Cullen Bay welcomes both Interstate and International visiting vessels, and has numerous berths available for short term rental specifically to cater for these craft. Visiting Vessels are permitted to live on board whilst in Cullen Bay for a maximum of 30 days, a privilege that is only available to vessels whose home port is outside of the Northern Territory. To enter the Cullen Bay Marina as a visiting vessel you must be able to provide the lock master with four things.
1. Firstly you must have completed in full a lock licence application and understand the rules of the Cullen Bay Marina precinct
2. Secondly you must be able to offer a clearance from Fisheries as outlined below
3. Thirdly you must have proof on third party insurance for your vessel
4. and finally you must pay the one off lock entry fee that will cover all lock expenses and fees during your stay in Cullen Bay

The Cullen Bay Marina entrance is controlled by a lock.

Communication

Call Lockmaster on VHF channel 11 or by phone on 0419 421363 to arrange transit through the lock. This must be done at least one hour prior to the desired entry time. Lock opening times are on the hour between 6am and 10pm seven days a week.

Navigation

The lockmaster will direct you to come to the floating fuel and ferry docks pontoon outside the lock for the inspection by Customs and Fisheries. Vessel Inspection by "Fisheries"

Call Lockmaster on VHF channel 11 or by phone on 0419 421363 to arrange transit through the lock. This must be done at least one hour prior to the desired entry time. Lock opening times are on the hour between 6am and 10pm seven days a week.

Carefully guide the boat up the channel toward the lock. There has been recent shoaling in the channel and a small yellow buoy has been placed in the channel to mark the south end of the shoal. You must leave the Yellow Buoy to Port. DO NOT pass close to the day marker as you are likely to run aground. There are range markers on the rock breakwater to guide you up the channel, but they are not always easy to spot. The lockmaster will usually provide some guidance to boats if they need it.

When the lockmaster tells you to enter the lock, slowly enter and tie up to the side the lockmaster dictates. Put out as many fenders on that side as possible to protect the hull from the barnacle encrusted concrete wall. Boat captains must follow ALL orders of the lockmaster.
