Launching at Morfa Nefyn

Hi All,

you can launch off the ramp at high tide, or beach launch with 4x4 at allmost any state, there might be some floating visitor moorings, if you dont fancy launch and recovery every trip, which are sheltered from the s/westerlys. It can get busy in high season and parking is limited,Best to park at the top of the road first and walk down lane to check. Depending on where you want to cruise, pwhelli marine is an easier proposition 24hr all states of tide public slip,
with tractor launch and recovery on the marina side, and some excellent cruising grounds, phone local harbour masters for more upto date info. you could even take a trip around bardsey and onto
Morfa nefyn. Enjoy the trip.

Its particularly bad there at the minute as the rain as washed the sand away at the bottom of the slip way, after this set of springs it should be ok again.

The slip is nice at high water but you cant turn around then.

The best time is two hours before or after HW as the beach is a nice angle to launch then.

Call Andy the boatman for launching on 07786594555. He charges 30 to launch and recover your boat (or 100 to recover your car :-) ). Nice lad and very helpful. Mark

Helpful to know about Morfa Nefyn.....

but I doubt it's worth nickl paying 100 to recover his car if it has been there for 3 years!

I would launch at Ty Calch, Caernarfon, only 15 launch/recovery and more options for cruising if the weather is'nt up to much, Morfa Nefyn can be a bit exposed and it's a long way to any where from there.

launching at mofo

We launched a very small rib/rib tender this past weekend at morfa. The parking was busy but was able to leave the trailer at the top of the beach with out any issues.

Fee payable to the council to register in order to launch was 15. for which one received a couple of stickers for the engine. As our engine is sub 10hp only needed to register however I think if engine is larger than 10hp a launching fee of approx 10 is levied eacch time you launch.

The beach was very busy and the pub while nice, certainly makes the most of its prime position to charge a little more than most!

It is a very scenic location, in the words of the council guy looking after the beach its pretty easy going with the exception of the maniacs on the jet ski's.......!

A few waves made getting the thing off difficult and resulted in wet and cold kids, possibly much easier in a larger boat with the tractor taking you out past the breaking waves.

due to the council cabin at the entry point to the beach the turning space is limited, as our boat is a minnow we just pushed the trailer up the beach and left the car parked up. some of the larger 4x4 and boats did struggle a little more than we did.


Regards


Mike
