Mooring and berthing

Mooring and berthing

Throughout the year we host a varied programme of events in Cardiff Bay and across the city.

Cardiff Bay offers short stay and overnight moorings, so why not plan to visit the Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival in July or the annual Harbour Festival during the August bank holiday weekend?

For more information, see our upcoming events.

Short stay visitor moorings

The Harbour Authority provides short stay visitor pontoon moorings within the Inner Harbour, which operate on a first come first served basis. They are located adjacent to Roald Dahl Plass and within the Graving Docks.

Vessels must display a valid ticket for the time they are berthed.

At present the minimum cost of a pontoon berth is £2 for the first two hours, plus £1 for each additional hour, up to a maximum of 24 hours. Use of the pontoons is subject to the terms and conditions displayed.

Note: Water and electricity are not provided.

On occasions, access to the pontoons may be restricted due to activities and events that are taking place in the Bay.

Yacht clubs and marinas

Local yacht clubs and marinas also offer long stay visitor moorings.
