Docking

Jastarnia lies midway along the 33km long thin peninsular extending eastwards from the western shore of the Gulf of Gdansk. It is connected by a railway to the mainland. In places the peninsular is only 200m wide and not much more than a metre high.

The harbour is on the southern shore, but can be a little exposed to swell from that direction. In strong winds from this direction it is better to go to Gdynia or Gdansk. The approach to harbour is simple and well marked (buoys, leading light, beacons), but keep to the channel as each side is very shallow. Keep a sharp lookout for a fishing nets.

In northern part of harbour there are three pontoons (two with fingers) with water and electricity. 10/15 guest moorings with a maximum draft of 3.5m.

There is free mooring at the pier on the eastern side of the harbour, but it has no water or electricity. Moor alongside or med-style using an anchor.

Kuźnica
This old fishing harbour lies about 5nm further north of Jastarnia along the Hel Peninsula. It is a useful alternative destination when Jastarnia is crowded.

The approach channel is due to have channel markers this spring (2014) but is dredged and yachts with a draft of up to 2m can enter. The church tower makes a conspicuous landmark.

In this recently re-built harbour, there are toilets, electricity and water and the town also has good fish bars and some provisions.

Great place with lots of guesthouses and restaurants (try Weranda, Łóżko, Rebok, 7kontynent for kashubian traditional food and fishes), nice beach and forest. You can visit wooden boat builder workshop producing traditional boats called Pomeranka. There is also a local museum. On west of town are IIWW fortifiactions with bunkers (one witk little museum). In summer You can try sightseeing flights over the Hel Peninsula from airfield in Jastarnia.

Approach to harbour is simple and well marked (buoys,leading light, beacons), sides of depth channel are very shallow (take a look on map). Keep a sharp lookout for a fishing nets. In northern part of harbour are three pontoons (two with fingers) with water and electricity. If lack of place, try mooring to eastern pier (no water and electricity - but for FREE) or fishing boats standing there. Western pier is reserved for fishermans and repairs. Very good shelter from most of directions unless southern gale (better go to Gdynia or Gdansk then).

Good place for small repairs, refit, boat winterizing and provision making. 65T travelift (80-140€), 6.5T crane (15€), slip, forklift, karcher, scaffolding, cradles, workshop. Sail repairs possible (Stelmaszczyka Street) or in Chałupy. Gas station in western part of town (gasoline, diesel, LPG).
