Tobermory Harbour Pontoon has up to 60 berths (with two Hammerheads). The pontoons are managed by the Harbour Manager and Marine Staff, providing alongside berthing with direct access to shoreside facilities at any stage of the tide.

Please note that the pontoon operates on a "first come first served" basis for vessels 15m and under. Over 15m should contact the Harbour to book in advance.

The Pontoon (see Pontoon Plan) provides berthing for;

  • Visitor Boats
  • Passenger Boats
  • Local Boats
  • Commercial Boats

The North Arm

A Passenger Landing Pontoon was constructed in 2017 as a berthing point to allow ease of access for passengers from commercial operators.

In 2019 a Heavy 80m section, which we are calling the “North Arm”, has been added to the pontoon system as an extension to the PLP. Berthing on the new facility is by arrangement only and dedicated mostly to light commercial. However, it frees up extra space on the main pontoons for visiting leisure craft.

The North Arm provides safe access for crews and all tides berthing for;

  • Fishing and Aquaculture boats
  • Cruise ships tenders
  • Small/medium size Commercial
  • Emergency Services
