More notes about the marina

The Marina degli Estensi lies at the canal port of Porto Garibaldi on the Adriatic coast of Italy, 14 miles N of the port of Ravenna and 40 miles S of Chioggia at the southernmost entrance to the lagoon of Venice. The marina offers berths for a total of 300 yachts of up to 25 metres. Depths in the marina range from 3.0 to 4.0 metres. Vessels of over 2.5 metres draft are advised to avoid the harbour owing to the shallow access channel.


Contact Marina degli Estensi on VHF channel 09 prior to entry. For advance reservations, telephone or e-mail.


The coast around Porto Garibaldi is mostly low-lying with few distinctive features. A tall red and white painted tower with a microwave dish sited inland at Comacchio is the most visible feature on the approach. Closer in, a long southern breakwater and two shorter northern breakwaters are identifiable. Entry is between the two smaller breakwaters on a course of 255 degrees. Depths in the entrance are only around 3.5 - 4.0 metres, but can be as little as 2.5 metres at the lowest tides. A red light is shown on the starboard hand breakwater and on the S side of the canal 900 metres upstream when large commercial vessels are leaving or entering port and entry is prohibited at such times. In the approach from both N and S, a yacht should stay at least half a mile offshore to avoid shoals and underwater obstructions. About 900 metres up the canal there is a narrow, tributary canal on port side marked with port and starboard markers which leads to the marina. The access channel is dredged to a depth of 4.0 metres

Note: Along this stretch of the Adriatic coast tidal ranges can exceed 1.0 metre at springs, so judging the tides right can make a significant difference to safe access in most of the shallower harbours.
