COVID-19 Update: Wednesday 20 May 2020

Coleraine Harbour Commissioners’ priority remains the safety of our customers and staff.

Based on recent updates to Government Guidelines on COVID-19 for Outdoor Activities:

Leisure boating operations will recommence and access to the Harbour will re-commence on Thursday 21st May at 11am.

It is important to recognise that while some restrictions are being relaxed, we remain in a state of national emergency and social distancing measures must be adhered to by all customers visiting the Harbour site. 

Please take the time to read through our Notice To Mariners which outlines safe practices in place at the Harbour. 


  • Access to boats stored outdoors will be possible between the hours of 8.00am and 10.30pm.
  • Boats located in transit sheds will only be accessible between 8.00am and 6.00pm.
  • Boat owners or others are not permitted on the Harbour site after 10.30pm
  • Overnight stays on the Harbour premises are specifically not permitted.

Commercial shipping operations remain in place.

Harbour security remains our priority with site security checks and remote monitoring of 24hr CCTV systems. 

Updates will be posted on our website in the coming days.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented situation.
