Visitor Moorings – Landing
Much of the land adjoining the river is private property. The following landing points are available to visitors.
Yealm Steps pontoon; This is located part way between the two visitor’s pontoons and can be accessed at all states of the tide. The Harbour Office, showers, waste facilities and water are to be found here. Tenders may be left secured to the pontoon or on the beach on either side of the pontoon. The end of the pontoon must be kept clear at all times to allow vessels temporary berthing (up to 20 minutes) to embark stores, water or passengers.
Wide Slip; Ramp and steps at Baring Point on the south side of the entrance to Newton Creek. The beach is smooth down to the low water mark but facilities for securing tenders are limited. Please ensure your tender is secured so that it does not impede the ability of the ferry to land passengers.
Parish (Kilpatrick) Steps; On the east shore opposite the first visitor’s pontoon but facilities for securing tenders are very limited.
Warren Point; on the west shore opposite the first visitor’s pontoon. Please ensure your tender is secured so that it does not impede the ability of the ferry to land passengers.
Within about 2 hours of high-water landings can be made in Newton Creek at:
The Brook; a hard beach and slip at Newton Ferrers, opposite Noss Mayo.
Noss Creek; at Pope’s Quay, just below the Swan Inn or at the Ship Inn.
Yealm Yacht Club; there is a concrete slip and jetty.
Bridgend Quay; There are beaches at each end of the quay area and steps on the western face of the quay.
