Chichester Harbour offers so many opportunities to get out and enjoy the countryside or the beach, explore the region's history, get up close to wildlife or enjoy a tranquil sail across the water.

Open Day

Come and join us at Chichester Harbour Conservancy’s Open Day on Thursday 31st May 2018!  It's based around the Harbour Office in Itchenor, from 11am - 3pm

A great range of activities are planned so come down to see the vessels and RIBs out in force, with free boat trips on our solar-powered passenger vessel and demonstrations on our moorings barge.

Onshore there will be the chance to meet the Patrol and Ranger teams and see them in action, take a wildlife walk, get photography tips, or glimpse sun through a special solar telescope.

There will be plenty to see and do for visitors of all ages and delicious refreshments available.

Find us at the Harbour Office Itchenor, PO20 7AW.  Park in the pay and display car park, charges apply.
