The Marina

Recreational sailing and yachting are not activities usually associated with the Port of Bordeaux.

Nonetheless, the Port is still responsible for maintaining and operating the old wet docks just outside Bordeaux city centre, boasting a substantial number of permanent moorings, short-term mooring rings and even cranes and winter storage facilities.

The City of Bordeaux also offer a number of quayside mooring points in the very heart of the city.
