STRAITS QUAY MARINA

390 miles from Singapore

STRAITS QUAY MARINA. 5°27.504N, 100°18.840E

The Straits Quay Marina is the focal point for the multi-phased Siri Tanjung Pinang waterfront community development on the northeast coast.

The entrance channel and basin are 3 metres deep at low tide, although recent reports have the often-dredged channel silted up with fine mud to 1 metre at low tide. Best advice is to approach at high tide and motor through the fine mud over the high spots.

At time of writing dredging was happening again inside and on the entrance channel with new bridge piling works just east connecting to the 900-acre offshore E&O Seri Tanjang Pinang reclamation.

If you’re very deep draft we suggest anchor out in the ‘ditch’ or channel and enter first by dinghy to check your bottom clearance.

Inside the compact rectangular basin are 40 full-facility wet berths for vessels up to 25 metres. Advance booking a berth is mandatory.

This is a condo retail complex where the marina was the catalyst for the entire development. There’s a Starbucks, Dome, Irish Pub and lots of high end shopping, restaurants and facilities.

The marina management office is located at the Boaters’ Centre on the ground floor. VHF Ch.71. +60 48906521 or +60123116058 for John Ferguson, the famous and hospitable marina manager. john@easternandoriental.com marina@straitsquay.com www.straitsquay.com
