OK so I know its expensive and all that but I actually think I want to go there this weekend and try it for myself. But trying to find information on it is hard work (no website etc.). Presumably Ch80 but whats the callsign? I know several people complained about running aground - is the approach marked? whats the minimum depth (I need 1.5m)?

Thx

Yes call them on ch80, call sign 'Dolphin Quay'.

You should have no trouble with depth, especially if you stick to the main channel. There are shoals outside the channel, these are shown on charts, and mainly marked. There is considerable ferry traffic, Brittany Ferries 'Barfleur' and Catamarans 'Condor Express' and 'Condor Vitesse' plus other smaller cargo ships. Good idea to stick to little ship channel when these are around. This is south of the main channel between red cans an red marker posts, still at least 3metres of water at low springs.

Good luck, Poole is a nice place.

HOW MUCH per metre??

Just back from 2 very pleasant weeks in Holland, where the maximum I paid was 1.70 per metre - and that is Guilders! So about 50p per metre per night.

Cheers, Chris
