About Us

Paignton Harbour nestles on the western shores of Tor Bay, situated midway between Torquay and Brixham harbours. Its understated beauty and authentic ‘fishing haven’ feel are often overlooked by visitors to the area.

The harbour was established in the 18th century and the local council has managed it since 1935. Today it remains a hive of activity, especially during the summer months and a vast range of different users enjoy the benefits of this unassuming maritime gem. There are plenty of fishing and diving trips that start from Paignton Harbour.

The harbour dries out at low tide and is well known for having an unconventional fairway approach. Unlike the majority of harbours in Great Britain this is made on the port side of the fairway and not the starboard side. This unusual and interesting feature is marked by a unique-looking seasonal buoy and provides for a much safer harbour approach.
