We are there now, our boat is launched from the main beach with our old 4x4. Don't think you will get anyone to put your boat in for you. Pwllheli has a concrete slip. As above Abersoch will be very busy bank holiday and it is difficult to park anywhere near the beach unless you get there early morning

Ive spoke to harbour master at Pwllheli because I'm already registered at Conwy I don't need to pay register fee again of 20 and launch is only 12 slipway looks good onto calm water showers and water at slip so launch there and steam to abersoch may be a plan thanks guys

abersoch launch

Land and sea would launch you for a fee with the tractor at any tide state I suspect.

http://www.abersochlandandsea.com/servicing.html

But your Pwllheli plan isn't bad. It's a bit of a pain to drive there, bait back, then boat there and drive back on the bank hol's. You may be queueing more than boating!

If Land and sea could launch and store you for a few days it may be more expensive but a hell of a lot easier and probably value for money!

pwllheli plan good idea shoot to abersoch or shoot over to barmouth an take look up the mawdach stunning views but tidal about 2hrs before and after high water chippy and cafes in harbour use gps as st patricks causeway very shallow at low tide use inshore passage and no probs follow outer marker into barmouth don't try to cut in as the bar can be shallow don't attempt at low tide same goes for portmadog buoyed channel follow them and youll be fine enjoy as dolphins In bay at momment

The lads who've previously posted will have more experience of abersoch and Pwllheli than me.

I had a long weekend in the area a few years back found the harbour master and staff at Pwllheli marina to be really helpful. You can get in and out on any tide IIRC and it was reasonably priced.
If you are there for longer than a day and less than a fortnight just bang it on one of their moorings and have a hassle free holiday. 👍

Or be different and go for the north coast, launch at Morfa nefyn or aberdarron, beach launch local tractor may be available and visit the quieter side of the penninulsa gor for a pint at the ty coch, a BBQ at porth oer,

abersoch launch

He's staying with the family in Abersoch with an Avon 560. I suspect he wants to pick up and off the beach, do some water sports in the bay with kids and go to St Tudwals or Bardsey at furthest to see seals.

Venturing off to Barmouth or launching the north side of the peninsula is probably (I may be wrong) not what he's after.

So to walk to land and sea where boat is stored safely, quickly launch and be where he wants all in 30 mins is likely key. So try Land and sea. Also saves the faff of queueing to launch on main beach with idiots who muck it up.

Only he'll know though.

But the drive to Pwllheli on bank hol's is awful, potentially an hour one way!
