Slipway Licences and Permits

We are pleased to offer access to the Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre’s slipway. Currently there are 2 forms of access.

1 – Day Permit

£14 allowing access from 09:00 to 16:30

2 – Annual Permit

Price is based on meterage of the vessel, for example a 5 metre vessel will cost £164.40 for the period. This allows unlimited access all of the time, as long as it is safe to do so and in compliance with the rules and regulations set by the Harbourmaster.

For either of these options, please contact the centre on (029) 2035 3912, to discuss the best option for you.

Please note that there are speed limits in place on the rivers and in Mermaid Quay. Often there are additional local Notices to Mariners (NTM) in effect. It is your duty to be aware of these before launching any vessel. Failure to comply may result in your access to the bay being revoked. The Harbourmaster is available via 02920 877 900 during working hours.
