About Us

Laxey Harbour

A small port on the east coast half way between Douglas and Ramsey. The harbour was built in the mid 1800s to service the lucrative mining industry but is now used by a small number of leisure craft and inshore fishing vessels.
Laxey’s traditional village has important Manx National Heritage sites which includes the giant waterwheel Lady Isabella – the world’s largest working water wheel.


Berths Available

Berthing is limited because of the size of the harbour, but leisure craft can use the channel berths in favourable conditions. No deep water berths are available as the whole harbour dries at each low water. Seasonal mooring buoys are placed in Garwick Bay (1 mile south) over the summer period for visiting vessels.
