COVID-19 : Measures to prevent the spread of the virus
On March 16, 2020, President of the French Republic decided to take measures to minimize contacts and travels.
A containment has been establish throughout the country as from today for a minimum of 15 days.
Travel is therefore prohibited except in the following cases, and only if you have a certificate for:
- Move from home to work when telework is not possible;
- Make essential purchases in authorized local shops;
- Go to a health professional;
- Travel for childcare or to help vulnerable people with the strict condition of respecting barrier gestures;

Recreational boat trips do not fall under the exceptions described above and the authorities confirm that they are prohibited. As such, they are now banned and services within our French marinas have been reduced:
- The harbour master’s offices of Bayonne-Anglet, Paimpol, Soubise, Leucate, Port-Barcarès, Port-Médoc and Port Napoléon are closed to the public,
- Handlings are suspended until further notice,
- The surveillance of the marinas is carried out daily by marina agents,
- Phone lines are open, and we can also be reached by email.
Your safety and that of our agents is our priority, which is why we are committed to conscientiously following the guidelines issued by the government.
In accordance with decree n°2020-260 of 16 March 2020 regulating travel as part of the fight against the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Maritime Prefectures of the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and the Channel specify that yachting, tourism or water sports activities are prohibited.
Both at sea and on land, these provisions are intended to actively prevent the spread of COVID-19 by restricting all travel.
They also allow to preserve the means of rescue at sea to dedicate them more specifically to possible health interventions linked to the current crisis.
You are therefore asked to strictly respect this measure and to relay this information to all sea users.
We wish you good luck in this unprecedented period and hope to be able to welcome you again very quickly in your port,
The Team Port Adhoc
