It can take as little as 20 minutes to motor to Folly Reach from the harbour entrance. Almost halfway up the River Medina, it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Cowes and is designated as a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest'. Please produce minimum wash in this area, keeping your speed below 6 knots through the water. Pontoon moorings are available although most require use of a tender or the Folly water taxis to get ashore.

Visitors are welcome. Electric. Water. Showers. Toilets. No laundry facilities. View or edit details in marina.wiki
