swell, be sure to have very stretchy dock lines and make sure that your
spreaders are not matched up to the boats beside you.The Club Nautico Marina has been under renovation for quite some
time, however latest reports are that it is almost finished, with a new
club house, showers and bathrooms. Completion of the restaurant and bar
The Club is busy, but spaces do come available for transient yachts.
Many cruisers however choose to anchor off and use the marina's
facilities including the dinghy dock, rubbish disposal and WiFi. The
Club make a small charge for this.
It is also worth emailing Club de Pesca de Cartagena as they
sometimes have slips available for transients. Barnacles can be a
problem for boats left for a period of time.
