Littlehampton Harbour Board


Littlehampton Harbour is a living harbour with lots going on, - including charter and commercial fishing, visits from small coasters, and a warm welcome and facilities for visiting yachts.

There has been a port on the River Arun since Roman times and today’s harbour serves both leisure and commercial users and is a gateway to the Arun Valley.

Modern facilities are available for visiting yachts in Littlehampton Harbour with walk ashore pontoons and electricity and fresh water available.

Launching is available at the public slipway by the Look and Sea Centre.

The Harbour Board office has warm welcoming showers and toilet facilities as well as a recycling point (glass, paper, plastic and household). Harbour staff are on hand to assist mariners with mooring and guide them to the shops and restaurants nearby.

The waters off Littlehampton are well known for fishing and diving and there are fishing charter trips available from the east bank.
