Marina La Gomera is located in the capital, San Sebastian, inside the commercial port and very close to the town centre, which makes it extremely user-friendly. The marina has a capacity for berthing 335 vessels from 6 to 20 metres long. It is also equipped with a dry dock for up to 30 7-metre motorboats. The marina can provide all the services required for a comfortable and safe stayover. The staff consists of 15 persons involving management, harbour master, administration, seamen, surveillance and maintenance. Finger pier-type berthing is available, equipped with individual electricity and water connections, boatyard services and 24-hour surveillance, private shower and toilet facilities, fuel station, dry dock, minimarket, harbour master’s office, weather information, and bicycle and vessel hire, among others.
There are mainly three types of customer: local vessels using the marina as a home base, boats from other islands that come for several months in spring and summer, and passing vessels en route to America, mainly yachts that make the most of the location of La Gomera Marina (the last in the Canaries) to take on supplies before setting off to cross the Atlantic. These vessels take advantage of the trade winds to sail west between September and December.
