Berths and lift out bay in Marina di Aquileia

Marina di Aquileia is a large residential and marina development lying on the N side of the lagoon of Grado, 1.5 miles up the Natissa river and half a mile S of the historic town of Aquileia. The marina is a total of 5.5 miles from the lagoon entrance. It offers 300 berths for yachts of up to 18 metres in depths of 2.5 - 4.5 metres. The marina is a good base for exploring the remains of the important Roman town of Aquileia and the excellent archaeological museum.


Try calling Marina di Aquileia on VHF channel 09 or 16. You may have better luck if you telephone or email in advance for berthing information and reservations.


The entrance to the Grado lagoon lies at World icon.png 45°39.6′N, 13°20.9′E, where there is a fairway buoy just under two miles offshore. Dangerous sandbanks extend for almost two miles on both sides of the entrance, so approach is only safe from this buoy, near high water and in settled weather. Approach should be made on a course of 040 degrees. The entrance channel, which is dredged to a depth of just 3.0 metres, is marked by piles on either side. Once inside the entrance, the channel forks. Take the port hand channel, which turns W then N towards the Natissa river and the Marina di Aquileia. This channel is marked with posts as far as the river entrance. The marina entrance is to starboard 1.5 miles upstream from the entrance. Depths in this channel can be as little as 2.0 metres at low water, so entry is not advised except close to high water. Yachts with a draft of over 2.0 metres should avoid Aquileia altogether.


Berthing assistance available. Berths are in a large basin on five pontoons and associated quays. All berths are equipped with mooring posts for four-point mooring. A length of 70 metres along the quay is reserved for yachts in transit.
