Whitegates Visitor Pontoons

Whitegates visitor pontoons are located on the eastern side of the fairway, immediately south of the floating bridge These moorings are quiet and are ideal for vessels wishing to stay overnight in Cowes but outside of a marina. They represent excellent value and many are suitable for deeper draught vessels.

The “E” pontoons have between 1.5m and 3.0m of water below chart datum and are often used to raft up yachts including during Cowes Week and the Round the Island Race weekend.

The pontoons are ideal for stays of multiple nights as they can be less than half the price of a marina berth. Water and electricity is not available and you will be required to either use your tender or a water taxi to get ashore.

Marine fuels, gas and lubricating oils can be obtained from the Cowes Harbour Fuel Berth, which is conveniently located opposite the pontoons on the western side of the fairway.
