Try something new at Portland Marina
Whether you’re just finding your sea legs or a seasoned sea dog, there are several sea schools locally offering RYA and MCA accredited courses for sail, power, theory and shore-based learning.
For a new perspective afloat, jump on a paddle board or kayak and go wherever your paddle takes you. Find your zen with SUP yoga or ramp your adrenaline levels up a notch with coasteering at Portland Bill all under the expert tuition of Adventure4All. If you'd rather keep your feet on dry land whilst getting your adrenaline fix, Adventure 4 All also offer rock climbing either on Portland's limestone cliffs with stunning views or on their new portable climbing wall at the marina.
Take to the high seas aboard Moonfleet, Portland Marina’s very own tall ship and enjoy a swashbuckling adventure. Or just sit back and relax and let the crew do all the hard work whilst you take in the magnificent views of Portland Bill and Durdle Door.
Kick back and relax onboard Tortuga, a 40' Fontaine Pajot catamaran, whilst your skipper takes you on a tour of Weymouth Bay. Short, day and sunset cruises available and if you're feeling adventurous, why not try e-foiling or wing sup-ing as part of your trip?

Your berthing fees cover your harbour dues for your craft whether you're an annual, flexi or short term visitor, but you'll need a permit from Portland Port for any small craft (paddle boards, dinghies, kite and windsurf boards are all included in this), and specific permits for fishing and towable watersports to play in the harbour.
