More notes about the marina

Porto degli Argonauti is, like Marina di Policoro, another of the new, luxury residential and marina developments under development in the Golfo di Taranto in Italy. Opened in October 2009, Porto degli Argonauti lies some 25 miles SW of Taranto on the W side of the gulf. Constructed on the coast by the company Nettis Resort around 20 km E of the town of Pisticci, the development will eventually provide, in addition to residential units, a total of around 450 berths for vessels of up to 40 metres. In addition to marina berths, the development also includes a boatyard capable of undertaking most repair and maintenance tasks.


Prior to entry hail the marina on VHF channel 74.


Plan of Porto degli Argonauti

The coastline to either side of the marina entrance is largely flat and featureless. The marina entrance is identifiable by the two short curved breakwaters protecting the channel. Entrance is from SE. The entrance leads into a 450 metre long channel giving access to the two basins of the marina. Depths in the entrance are 4.0 metres, in the channel and in the marina basins 3.5 metres. Shelter in the marina is excellent.


You will be assisted to a mooring. Service 24 hours.

There is little of interest in the immediate vicinity of the marina, but with hired transport it is worth exploring some of the hinterland and its picturesque mountain villages. The World Heritage site of Matera is around 50 km NNW of the marina.
