Parking in the Marinas
You may notice when you arrive at the marinas, that there is a segregation of parking facilities between berth tenants, property tenants and visitors/guests.
The following rules are in place for vehicle parking and vehicle/trailer parking in the marinas:
- The berth holder parking area is reserved for berth holder tenants displaying a valid berth holder sticker in their vehicle windscreen
- Compounds and boatsheds tenants may park in the “Pay & Display” zones (at no charge when displaying their valid 2020/2021 sticker in their vehicle windscreen or on their boat trailer)
- Visitor and guests to the marinas must park in the Pay & Display areas and display a paid parking ticket
Please note that in peak times, compound / boatshed tenants are asked to park their trailers or cars back to the compounds / boatsheds where possible.
We can often provide some assistance by shuttling you to overflow areas or compounds/boatsheds – see your marina staff at the ramps, or call the marina offices during office hours.
We would also like to take this opportunity to highlight that a berth holder parking sticker does not entitle to the use of the launching ramp or car & trailer parking facilities and/or that car & trailer parks cannot be used as car only parks.
Your collaboration with the above would be greatly appreciated, and if you are unsure please contact your marina staff who will be happy to advise.
Trailer Boat Tie-Up Zone
We do have tie up zones for trailer boat customers, to allow for short trips into Picton to top up on groceries or enjoy a day trip out. We have two tie-up zones in Picton Marina (the visitor berth and breastworks, pictured here)
These two facilities cater for unscheduled visitors, and can be paid for at the Beachcomber offices.
There are no tie-up zones as such in Waikawa and Havelock Marinas. However, we are generally able to offer short stays in vacant berths. Please ring your Marinas Service Manager and they will be able to assist you.
In the peak season particularly from Christmas to mid-January, managing short stays in the marinas has proven to be difficult, and we strongly recommend that if you’re staying out in the Sounds on holiday, that you try to plan your trips into town and book a casual berth in advance.
Please remember the launching ramp cannot be used as a tie up zone. Especially during busy times, we need to keep this area moving. If you are unsure about any of this information, please contact your marina staff who will be happy to advise.
