Get around

The Bristol Channel is a tidal estuary on the South West of Britain. It accomodates pleasure vessels throughout many marinas and tidal harbours from St. Ives in Cornwall in the West, to Sharpness in the East on the South side England, and from Milford Haven in the West to Chepstow in the East on the North side Wales. There is also a large quantity of commercial traffic serving the larger ports at Bristol, Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot, Swansea and Milford Haven.






Stay safe

When sailing in the Bristol Channel don't forget that this is a very challenging sailing area with very strong tidal currents, with the second highest tidal range in the world next to Bay of Fundy.
