The town is not a looker and the marina has continuous wake even when there is no wind. You'll find it difficult to get a good nights sleep if you're in the outer basin. Would only recommend as a backup port.

If you're planning to arrive outside of normal French opening hours or on a Sunday you're in trouble as you won't be able to get in/out of the locked basin. If that's not enough the entrance to the port with onshore wind over F5 and waves over a couple of meters is challenging/not recommended. You'd be safer to anchor outside and wait out any rough conditions. Better still don't plan to stop here and head to Dieppe or Honfleur, they're significantly nicer.


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.

  • Port does not have a port control however when leaving/entering it's worth making yourself known on VHF 12 incase there is a large dredger that happens to be coming in as you're heading out ;-).

Fecamp is a port of entry/exit to France.

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


The visitor pontoon is C, when we visited it was caked in bird excrement to an extent that we've not seen at any other French marina. This makes for slippery walking.

If you have no option but to visit then I'd suggest that you go as far down the pontoon as you can to help reduce the 'wobble' you experience. We almost chaffed through a spring with one calm night.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

  • There's a lively sailing club bar that's worth a visit.


None. You could probably anchor outside of the no anchoring area but with an onshore wind it would not offer good shelter.
