pilot Information

Follow the recommended channel from the north entrance marked with red buoys and a safe water mark.

Navigational Safety

Portland Harbour has three entrances to the Inner Harbour, North Ship Channel, East Ship Channel, and South Ship Channel.

South Ship Channel is blocked by a wire running across the entrance and the wreck of the HMS Hood also lies on the bottom so it is only accessible by very small vessels.

East Ship Channel is the main commercial vessel entrance. 95% of all large commercial vessel traffic to the Inner Harbour will transit through this entrance. All vessels are requested to call 'Portland Harbour Radio' on VHF Ch74 before transiting this entrance to check for trafffic information.

North Ship Channel is the main leisure traffic entrance to the harbour but occasionally this may be used for large commercial vessels.

Recreational users of the harbour are advised to keep clear of these entrances unless transiting through.

When a large commercial vessel (above 50m) is transiting either North Ship Channel or East Ship Channel, traffic lights in the form of three vertical lights will be lit on the entrance being used to indicate the direction of travel of the commercial vessel. When the traffic lights are active the commercial vessel has right of way through the entrance. 


Large Vessels, in particular container ships with deck cargo and car carriers have restricted visibilty for quite a distance ahead, you may be able to see them but can they see you?

Once large commercial vessels have passed a certain point approaching the entrances they are extremely restricted in their ability to stop or deviate from their course to avoid anything in the way. Most recreational sailors take pride in the responsible way they conduct themselves, part of this is the realisation that hindering the passage of a large commercial vessel is dangerous for themselves, their crew, and the ship itself.

Recreational users of the harbour are requested to remind themselves of and observe, the Collision Regulations (COLREGS), Portland Harbour Byelaws, General Directions, and Local Notice to Mariners.
