The Plas Heli Pontoon Berths are located to the north of Hafan marina and has its own access bridge from the new quay and to the west of Plas Heli main facility building.

Pwllheli harbour has easy access to Cardigan Bay and is an ideal base to explore our spectacular, scenic coastline of natural beauty and the numerous safe anchorages and harbours.

The pontoons also provide excellent facilities for visiting boats, training and events.

The Pontoons have been specifically designed for events and training, with a wide access bridge, boardwalks, flexible layout and open bays which are also ideal for Sailing, International Class Competitions, Boat Shows or Marine Exhibitions.

In addition, the Pontoons are available for visitor boats, and can accommodate large keelboat events, and visiting flotillas.

The Pontoons, along with a versa-dock, can accommodate all event RIBs and committee boats. A floating slipway, and disabled access hoist makes the facility suitable for canoeing, kayaking, and rowing.
