Whitby Harbour is located on the north east coast of England to the south of the Tees and north of the Humber. The harbour separates the east and west sides of the town and is attractive for the berthing of vessels due to the proximity to the town’s amenities.

Whitby has a rare mix of the old and the new and the harbour reflects this with the vessels utilising the facilities. Traditional fishing cobles, modern trawlers, leisure craft and cargo vessels are all accommodated.

Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook, Dracula, the historical activities of the whaling fleets and other areas of the town’s past lead to a rich environment for the owners and crews of vessels to explore and enjoy.

The port is close to the North York Moors National Park with the stunning scenery and wildlife attracting many visitors to the region.

All the facilities that would normally be expected to service the cosmopolitan requirements of a busy small port are available, ranging from repair facilities, bunkers, ice and fish market to chandlers, cargo handling and leisure berths.

It is the intention that the crews of all vessels visiting the port leave having been made to feel welcome and wishing to return.
