Marina Plan

Communication

Call VHF channel 09 - (before entry). For long term arrangements call at +30 22730 61600. The manager Mr. Spyros Moustakas, is very eager to please his customers.

Entrance

This marina is a port of entry/exit.

To clear formalities for Greece you must walk with your papers (about 15 minutes) to Pythagorio.

Navigation

The approach to the marina is straightforward but when arriving from the W keep offshore. It is best to stay close to the jetty on your port side as you enter the marina.

Berthing

The attendants will meet you outside the marina with their inflatable and guide you to a berth. They will assist you to dock. There are laid mooring lines, do not anchor.

If you are either entering or exiting Greece, you will have to walk to Pythagorio, 15 minutes, for the formalities.

NOTE: The attendants are not at the marina 24hr/day. They usually arrive sometime between 9-10 AM and leave around 8-9 PM.

  • I keep my boat regularly at the marina. In general, I am very pleased with the staff but not with the prices. Unfortunately the marina has been neglected and the physical plant is deteriorating. --Istioploos
  • If you need diesel you will need to advise the marina reception (VHF9) beforehand. --RockoOne
