Known as ‘the gateway to the Island’ and a popular destination for families, Ryde Harbour lies next to long sandy beaches and is only minutes away from restaurants, a bowling alley, swimming pool, fun fair, skating rink, and a boating lake. Ryde Esplanade runs the full length of the seafront, followed by the sea wall promenade which passes the Canoe Lake and reaches as far as Puckpool Park to the east. Ferry connections to Portsmouth and Southsea are within walking distance. The harbour dries and is only accessible to small craft approximately 2.5 hours before and 2 hours after High Water Portsmouth for a boat with 1m draught. Depth available is up to 2m on Springs. Ryde Harbour Master can be contacted on VHF Ch 80 Call Sign ‘Ryde Harbour’.
