More notes about the marina

Marina del Cavallino is a marina on the W side of the river Sile on the Adriatic coast of Italy, which enters the sea eight miles NE of the Porto Lido entrance to the Venetian Lagoon. The marina is in a large basin just over half a mile from the river entrance, immediately N of the smaller basin of Marina del Faro. It offers 320 berths for yachts up to 30 metres in maximum depths of 6.0 metres.

Marina radio contact

Call Marina del Cavallino on VHF channel 09 or 16. Alternatively, telephone or e-mail in advance for berthing information and reservations.


Access to Piave Vecchia is via the mouth of the Sile river World icon.png 45°28.62′N, 12°35.04′E, which is flanked by two moles extending into the sea among the miles of beaches lining this coast. The prominent Piave Vecchia lighthouse on the W side of the entrance is visible from some considerable distance. The entrance is narrow and a good lookout is needed for other vessels leaving the river, especially in poor visibility. Approach should be made on a course of around 335 degrees to keep in the deepest water. The better depths are on the W side, close to the lighthouse. The channel here is dredged to a depth of 3.5 metres. However, as with most of the harbours along this coast, entry is best during the last hour or so of the tide, which can add up to a metre to the depths in the entrance. Entry should not be attempted in strong onshore winds. The Marina del Cavallino is situated on the W bank of the river just over half a mile from the entrance, immediately N of the smaller marina of Marina del Faro.


Berthing assistance available on request. Berths are on seven pontoons and associated quays around the basin. Up to eight larger yachts over 25 metres can berth on the end of the pontoons. All berths have mooring posts for four-point mooring.
