Kalamata Marina, Greece

Not to be used for navigation


Marineros are on duty 24/7 and will direct you to a slip and assist with lines.  Call them on Ch 69 when you are 10 minutes out.


Most berths are stern or bows-to with laid lines tailed to the pier.  Lines are shackled to chain and some lines are too short for larger yachts.  Larger yachts (45'+) should have a chain hook handy.  One shackle broke on an adjacent mooring while we were there.  The piers marked in orange in the photo are the most subject to swell when the wind (even slight) is from the south.  The piers marked in green are the likely alternatives for transients and are less subject to swell.  We rolled so much in slight winds that we moved to a  'green' area.


The Marina is fully equipped with repair facilities and a 60 ton travelift.  Both the Ladies and Mens showers have clothes washers and dryers.  Kalamata is a nice town.  Not at all touristy.  The surrounding countryside (Mani Peninsula) is quite breathtaking and similar to Tuscany in many ways.


The town is adjacent to the marina, but the old town is a taxi ride away.  Most shops are closer to the port than to the Marina which is on the outskirts of town.   


BEACHES:  There is a town beach on the far side of the port.
WEBSITE:  The marina has its own website
VHF/NET:  The marineros monitor Ch 69.
WIFI:  The marina's wifi was temporarily not working during our visit.  We were able to pick up unsecured wifi from the surrounding buildings.  Skippers Cafe in the marina has wifi (code is 1234567890123) available to marina users.
SHOWERS:  The Marina showers and toilets are clean and pleasant and are free for use of customers.
LAUNDRY:  Marina has its own washers and dryers located in each shower block.  Currently (04/2009) 4 euros a load for wash and 5 euros for the dryer. 
ELECTRICITY AND WATER:  Available at all slips. 
CHANDLERY:  A small chandlery next to the supermarket closest to the marina. Larger chandleries on the far side of the port. 
GROCERIES:  Medium sized supermarket a couple of blocks from marina (marked on photo).  A larger supermarket near the port (marked on photo).
BUTANE/PROPANE:  The shop near the marina office will replace empty tanks with filled ones.
RESTAURANTS:   There are a number of restaurants lining the marina and in town. 
CAR RENTAL:  The town is full of car and scooter rental offices.  There are several near the Port that will deliver cars to the marina including Vergas (+30-27210-95190) at 202 Faron.  Going rate in 04/2009 was 28 euros per day, but this only included 100 kilometers.
