Whitstable Harbour information

Harbour arrivals

The harbour is suitable for vessels up to 95m. For incoming vessels above 50m, pilotage is compulsory and notice to the harbour office is required 24 hours before estimated time of arrival.

Vessels board a pilot at the Whitstable Street buoy, approximately two miles north east of the harbour.

Inbound vessels should leave the Oyster buoy, a red port hand buoy which can be seen off the harbour entrance, to port. VHF users should call ‘Whitstable Harbour’ on Channel 9.

You can contact Whitstable Harbour on 01227 274 086.

South Quay Shed redevelopment

The proposal aims to create an indoor and outdoor all year round, covered area as a community space. This will include small start up business units for local artists with workshops, food outlets, a museum and exhibition areas.

Updates on this project will be posted on our business and investment news pages.
