Enter the outer harbour passing the two lighted breakwaters jutting out into the sea (Fl(2)R 6s 17M/Iso G 3s 9M). Mind shallow waters approx. 1nm NW of harbour. The lighthouse at the harbour’s southern end is a prominent landmark (Fl(4) 15s 59m 22M). Head for the basin W of the ferry dock, mind the keep-to-stb rule, ferry traffic and traffic signals. The dock gate before the basin is open from approx. HW -2h/+2.5hrs, swing bridge opening hours are HW -1h and -2h /+1.25hrs and +2.5hrs. Mind the occasionally strong tidal cross current as well as the ferry traffic when entering the outer harbour. Strong SW-NE winds create swell, also in the outer harbour if wind comes from N. Keep a listening watch on VHF on channel 17 during the entire approach.
Marina closed at night. Marina guarded at night.

The Flemish Renaissance-style town hall (1910-1922) is well worth seeing. It forms a nice backdrop for the six figures of Auguste Rodin’s famous bronze sculpture, The Burghers of Calais.
