As of May 11, we will be pleased to see you on your port. However, for security reasons, we will have to observe some preventive measures together.
As we announced in our previous newsletter, we have launched a dredging operation on the pontoon to ensure maximum comfort during your docking maneuvers.
This operation, which was initially scheduled to take place during the month of March, was postponed due to the health crisis. The authorities finally authorized us to start the work at the beginning of the week. But due to technical difficulties linked to the nature of the funds around our pontoon, the work will be prolonged until the end of next week.
Therefore, we will not be able to schedule any handling until Friday afternoon, May 15 (date to be confirmed next week). We apologize for the inconvenience.
The port is open to the public again from Monday, May 11, you will be welcome from that date onwards to prepare and maintain your boat in compliance with the safety instructions explained below.
Resumption of navigation & travel
The Préfecture Maritime de l'Atlantique confirms that the navigation will be authorized again from May 11th.
Travelling at sea: navigation is authorized within a perimeter of 54NM from your home port. Also, do not hesitate to bring your contract Port Adhoc in case of control.
As the borders with Spain remain closed for the time being, this perimeter allows you to sail south to the Bay of Fontarabia, and north to Biscarrosse, from your home port: Port Adhoc Bayonne-Anglet.

Travelling ashore: as of May 11, you may travel to the port provided that your home is within a 100km radius. Beyond this perimeter, travel must be for compelling reasons only and be accompanied by a certificate. We are not authorized to provide you with a travel certificate, so we leave this point to your discretion.
In order to be able to welcome you safely from May 11th and to respect the physical distance measures recommended by the health authorities, we will regulate the flow of boaters throughout the port.
To this end, we have put in place the following measures to ensure your safety and that of our agents:
The harbour master's office is closed to the public. For any request, we are at your disposal by email at email@example.com or at 06 82 20 09 80.

Once the appointment is made, please respect the time and the number of passengers communicated at the time of your reservation, otherwise access to the port cannot be guaranteed and you will have to make a new appointment.
In addition, in order to ensure the fluidity of traffic on the pontoon and to ensure the safety of all, the following instructions must be respected:
- At the start , please leave the pontoon as soon as possible after boarding in order to free the space,
- On arrival, please prepare your equipment in advance in order to disembark as soon as possible after mooring.
In order to respect the physical distancing measures, a display will be available at the beginning of the pontoon to explain the procedure to you.
IMPORTANT: In order to free up as much space as possible on the pontoon and to ensure the best possible quality of service to all, any boat returning to the port must be automatically taken out of the water at the end of the day. It will not be possible to spend the night at the pontoon.
Washrooms will be disinfected regularly. Please make sure to respect the barrier gestures and to wash your hands when entering and leaving the toilets with the hydroalcoholic gel at your disposal.
