At highish tide, you can go on the southerly side of the pier in the bay, where the solid wall is. There's steps and rings to tie to. If you tie up on the end on the new floating pier, they get very antsy as the tour boats are coming and going

Alternatively, go to Gazelle Hotel just south of Beaumaris opposite Bangor pier. Food is average, fine for a "pub lunch", but there is a 90% full tide jetty that you can watch your boat on whilst you eat and easily move as the tide rises/falls.

Many thanks. It seems a real pity that with all the money the new pier must have cost that they don't encourage 'boaties' to come and spend they're money, especially when small seaside places are struggling.
.... That's the moan out of the way!
Thanks for the advice, it's much appreciated. As a P.S. where's the best place to see dolphins, we're based at Caernarfon?

we just take our lunch with us, plenty of nice spots to moor / anchor up all along The Menai, The Gazelle is nice to sit outside on a sunny day and watch The Cardinal Buoy bobbing about on its mooring

best place to see the dolphins is any where between the Caernarfon fairway buoy and Trefor, we saw them fishing over the Caernarfon Bar last summer, also spotted them off Sth Stack so guess you just need to be in the right place at the right time

on a nice day the Ty Coch at Morfa Nefyn takes some beating for a pub lunch or down to whistling Sands for a ice cream is a good day out too, oh and don't forget to stop off at Pilots Cove, I spent many a happy hour on the beach last season recuperating

we're based in Caernarfon too, at Ty Calch, best launch / recovery service in the world, but don't tell Chris

Agreed, the cardinal is a beautiful site by the gazelle! Though it's going on station late this yr.

Defo off the bar and s west coast of Anglesey for dolphins. Only seen them 5 times in 10 yrs on NE side, but seal colony on tip of puffin, along with puffins and the other sea birds is quite incredible. Worth the trip.

excuse me HP, that's a fair leap even for you, all I said was you could watch the Cardinal bobbing up n down, I never mentioned it were a "beautiful site" now if it were a SR4, that would be a different matter all together, you still looking for a proper rib HP

I've taken a couple of days holiday this week to move things along a bit, sorting the wiring out and a host of other little jobs, but just having a tea break sat in the back garden by the pond, it's a hard life but someone's got to keep an eye on the fish
