Welcome

Durban Marina is a very friendly and welcoming Marina situated in the heart of the Sunshine City of Durban. We provide a safe haven from the sometimes violent seas between Mozambique and Port Elizabeth. Our subtropical weather and proximity to a variety of services and tourist attractions make us an unavoidable stop-over for visiting sailors! We provide free water and 24 hour security with easy access to on-site Club facilities (ablutions, refreshments and new friends).

Situated close to the old Golden Mile, where you can still catch a ride in a Zulu Rickshaw, the Victoria Embankment (aka the Esplanade) is home to the Roma Revolving Restaurant (amongst other things) which boasts wonderful views of Greater Durban. Wilsons Wharf next door offers entertainment as well as a selection of pubs and restaurants. There is plenty of entertainment on the precinct, however. Both Point Yacht Club and Royal Natal Yacht Club have good restaurants offering some delicious food (including the famous PYC pie, chips and gravy; and great curries at RNYC). Café Fish is another popular restaurant overlooking the Marina.

uShaka Marine World (a large aquarium with a great conservation drive), Suncoast Casino, Moses Mabhida Stadium (a fantastic architectural wonder), Umgeni River Bird Park and the Indian Temples are just a few of the wonderful places right nearby to visit.

Durban is not far from major tourist attractions such as game parks and historic sites. If you have time to travel into the hinterland, we are just two or three hours from places like Tala Game Reserve, the Southern Drakensberg or (in the other direction) Zululand. Some of the wonderful spots up the North Coast include St Lucia Wetlands and Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park. Lying just on the outskirts of Durban is the famous Thousand Hills Valley and Phezulu Safari Park.

Of course if you really have time on your hands you might like to leave your boat with us and visit the Kruger National Park!

For those who like browsing, the Markets of Warwick are a large informal street market and the Indian Market in Victoria Street offers a wide range of bargains. Shopping Centres (such as Musgrave, the Pavilion, Gateway) are just a taxi-ride away.

The Staff at the Marina will happily phone the launderette to collect your washing, or one of the taxi companies (or the shuttle bus to King Shaka Airport) to book your ride; and help you in any way we can to make your stay in our city fabulous.

Of course some of you may stop over for urgent repairs and supplies, in which case you will be coming to the right place. There are plenty of experts around to help you. Check out our website for various links.

FROM MALCOLM’S DESK…

Welcome
A warm welcome to all new Lessees on the Marina and wish you a pleasurable stay and many hours of safe sailing.

Guests
Please note that guests are only allowed onto the Marina if accompanied by the Lessee. It does not mean that your guests have 24 hour access to the Marina.
You as the Lessee will be held liable while your guests are on the Marina. We do apologize for all this, but recently there was an incident whereby 2 supposed guests threatened to stab one of the Lessees. We can all agree that this behavior is totally unacceptable.

MSC
It’s all over and we congratulate PYC to what appears to be a well-run and organized event. It was good to see rivalry and sporting completion between all entrants.

Boat Show
We look forward to the middle of July when the Marina will be used for the 2015 International Boat show, which will be hosted over the weekend of 17th – 19th.
Our Lessees who are inconvenienced by moving their boats – once again, Thank you for you continued support in this event.

Empty Nest
Our Marina feathered family have left the comforts of the Marina and headed north. The clan are sorely missed by Tracy, Adri, Shireen and Lisa, however no more dodging and trekking through goose guano.

Kind Regards

Malcolm
