Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you’re new to boating, or a seasoned pro, you may well have some questions about how our Park and Launch system works….
How does Park & Launch work?
We will ensure the launch and retrieval of your boat goes smoothly. Once you’ve tested your ignition, got your guests onboard and are ready to go, simply give us a call. We will let you know about the state of the tide and what time last retrieval is. Then when it’s time to come in, just call us when you enter the channel. We will retrieve your trailer and come and collect you from the slip way and return your boat to our compound. Simple.
What times of day is Park & Launch available?
From 1st April – 31st October, Harbour Marine is open seven days a week from 9am. Last retrieval time will depend on the state of the tide, which we will advise you on the day. We have tide times on the home page of our website.
Do I need to register my boat with Gwynedd Council?
Every vessel launching in Gwynedd must be registered with the Council and you must renew every year. To download Gwynedd Council’s registration form, click here. The fee for Park and launch customers for 2023 is £60.
What facilities are available?
We have multiple water points and hosepipes in the park and launch yard but recommend you keep your own set of muffs to flush your engine through. The yard is close to the toilets in the Marina and a short walk to Plas Heli, which serves fantastic meals and snacks with the finest view in North Wales.
Can I access my boat whenever I wish?
Between 1st April – 31st October we are open seven days a week from 9am to 5.30pm ish so you are welcome to access your boat at this time. The yard is locked over night. In the winter, we are open Monday – Friday.
Can my boat be waiting for me on the water?
Unfortunately not. You need to be in your boat when it is launched and retrieved. If you wish to stay in the Marina overnight, contact Hafan Pwllheli….or Plas Heli….and see if there is a berth available…and we can retrieve you the following day.
Where can I park?
You can park along the fence outside the yard. For your safety, and to ensure there is no damage to either cars or boats, no vehicles….other than launching tractors…are allowed in the yard.
Can I flush my engine through?
Absolutely! There are multiple hosepipes for customers to use. Please bring your own muffs or hose attachments as these always seem to go walkabout!
