Port and Yacht Harbour

Located on the River Nene, Wisbech Port and Yacht Harbour is Cambridgeshire's only gateway to the sea. It offers a wide variety of marine services as well as leisure mooring facilities

Wisbech Port is a busy commercial shipping port, situated on the River Nene on the outskirts of Wisbech. The development of the Yacht Harbour and pontoon mooring facilities has made Wisbech an increasingly popular mooring location to explore the inland waterways of the wash.

Despite Fenland not being on the coast, we are the statutory harbour authority for most of the tidal River Nene. As well as owning and operating the Port and Yacht Harbour, we provide a Port Health service to commercial ships, leisure vessels and fishing vessels. 

Our Harbour Staff are available to help with your passage planning, whether upstream or seaward. They can advise on optimum times to arrive to make best use of tides, depths of water and air draft. For more information, please call our Harbour Office on +44 (0)1945 588059.
