When navigating on the River Ely, you should note that there is a 5 knot speed limit. You should also exercise caution when passing under bridges, and keep a look out for paddle craft and vessels emerging from mooring areas. The next landmark is Pont y Werin Bridge, located about halfway along Cardiff Marina’s moorings. See below for details of the bridge operation.
A road bridge, the Cogan Spur, is a short distance above Pont y Werin. It is possible for small boats to navigate further upstream, but you are advised to be especially aware of your air draught. Cardiff Marine Village lies approximately 1.5 miles upstream of the river entrance, just beyond the Penarth Road Bridge.
