The Miri marina is a mile south of the Baram River (called ‘Miri River’ by the locals), tucked in behind a breakwater in a sheltered lagoon. The statue on the port side breakwater on entering is a Sea Horse, the city emblem of Miri. The marina offers full facilities and berthing for 80 yachts up to 115 feet.
The depth inside is approximately 5 metres with a 2-metre soft mud bank at the entrance. Located in Miri town, the marina offers plenty of opportunities to discover the wonders of Sarawak. It is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby Mulu, Niah and Lambir Falls National Parks. Only one mile north is the river mouth, which is well worth exploring by dinghy or hiring a local boat. The water comes out black from the tannins it collects on its run from some 400 kilometres inland.
Since Miri is often the first or final port of entry when cruising this coast, the local government officers are used to dealing with clearing yachts. The Marine Department is on the way into town and Customs and Immigration buildings are not far from each other in the main city. www.mirimarina.com website is under development at writing but contact can be made direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org
