The Harbour
Access Sheppard’s Marina and Marina Bay are situated N of Gibraltar, near the airport runway. Then, one shall sail along then turn round the vast commercial harbour by the exterior before to turn right by the N jetty.  Description 209 berths. Fixed pontoons with mooring on dangle. 
Services Water, electricity, toilets  Draught <2,50-3m - Tides tables 
Heavy svces Shipchandlers. Engine and electrical workshops. Yacht repair facility at Sheppard’s Marina (H. Sheppard & Co Ltd).  Anchorage Much backwash in the harbour by any weather.
Marina Bay is ideally placed, near the centre and the airport. This harbour is quite confused, often full in Summer, and one shall often be patient before to moor to arrange customs formalities. The Algeciras harbour (that did’nt cost a cent in 2005, but without services) offers more berths (but less advantages!).
