More notes about the marina

Venice Yacht Pier is essentially a booking agency - principally geared to superyachts - which operates a total of five different berthing locations on the Canale della Guidecca along the S side of the main island of Venice, which are suitable for yachts up to 100 metres.


No listening watch on VHF. It is essential to make an advance reservation by telephone or e-mail, since all the berths are in great demand, especially during the season.


Access is via the Porto di Lido, the principal (and busiest) entrance to the lagoon. As the deepest channel, with depths of over 10 metres, it is also the one used by ferries and large commercial vessels. The ends of the N and S breakwaters are identifiable by conspicuous black and white and red and white painted structures. A fairway beacon is situated around 2.5 miles SE of the entrance, from where a course of 300 degrees brings you safely through the entrance. The safe channel is also indicated by port and starboard markers. The channel is dredged to over 10.0 metres. Entry is best around slack water, since the tides can reach 4.0 knots at springs. Beware of cross-currents. Once through the entrance, follow the channel, which is marked with posts, as it curves S then N for about 3.0 miles, leaving the islands of La Certosa and Sant’Elena to starboard. You are now in the Canale della Guidecca. All the berths of Venice Yacht Pier are located to starboard along the Canale della Guidecca (see waypoints below for exact locations).


Venice Yacht Pier is a port of entry for Italy. For details see Entrance: Italy.


All the berths of Venice Yacht Pier are very busy during the season and advance booking is essential. Yachts of over 24 metres are recommended to use a yacht agent (Venice Yacht Pier maintains a list of recommended agents). In practice, the berths are mainly used by superyachts, for whom money is generally no object.
