Dock Services


Ischia is the largest of the Phlehrean Islands and the third among the most populated Italian islands (after Sicily and Sardinia). It hosts different ports but the main ones are those of Ischia and Casamicciola.  

The Port of Ischia is a natural port. It was originally a 100,000-square-metre lake, called "Pantaniello", hosting the small inhabited islet of Tondo. Today, what remains of this islet is just a round ruined structure. The lake was just a pair of metres deep.

Pantaniello became a port thanks to Frederick II who aimed to give an important commercial boost to the island and made the travel to his personal residence easier.

But the works took a very long time and the new port was inaugurated only on September 17th 1854, even if some completion works lasted some years.

Today, the port is entirely covered with quays and it is perfectly sheltered from all winds by an outer breakwater. The sea bottom is composed by mud and sand and has a depth varying from 0,7 to 3.6 m. At the quay, the maximum draught is 1.2 m.

The structure offers 200 berths, 3 of which are reserved for transiting boats. The access to the port is allowed to boats no longer than 50 m.

Before entering the port (half-mile before the entrance channel), yachtsmen are required to contact Circomare Ischia on VHF channel 13.

On a side of the port, there's the so-called "Riva Destra" or "Rive Droite": rich of restaurants and discopubs, it represents the heart of the nightlife on the island. On the opposite site, on the contrary, the so-called "Riva Sinistra" receives cargo ships and tourist ferries.

The port hosts the Marina di Ischia, which offers a great plurality of services. It's an etremely modern marina, able to satisfy the most demanding yachtsmen. It offers drinkable water, electricity, waste collection, illuminated quays and a 24-hour watchmen service, in addition to electric and electronic repairs and maintenance services on wooden and fiberglass boats. Yachtsmen can even require free checks aboard.

The marina also offers a filling station which provides with both patrol and diesel.
