    May Dream | Sailboat ~ 10.9 m

    As per previous comment go to Port Office, cost will be significantly less than if you pay random guy on pier who will say 10 a night ++ for card etc. We where 10 euro fir water and elec "€13 deposit for card. €10.38 for 5 night at 10.9 mtr...😁👍

    The marina, to the west of the fishing port, is a very good harbor and the city is delightful if one lingers there. Big market on Saturday morning west of the docks. Kavala is not a tourist town and that explains why there is no reception, no visible organization, no fuel service and that the police of the port is difficult to find, not very affordable and not helping. You will be saved from the confusion thanks to the west cabin on the parking lot ... if you manage to make you understand ... Anyway you will be safe in a very nice city.

    La marina, a l’ouest du port de pêche, est un très bon havre et la ville est délicieuse si on s’y attarde. Gros marché le samedi matin à l’ouest des quais. Kavala n’est pas une ville foncièrement touristique et cela explique qu’il n’y ait aucun accueil, aucune organisation visible, aucun service de carburant et que la police du port est difficile à trouver, peu abordable et pas aidante. Vous serez sauvé du désarroi grâce à la cabane ouest sur le parking...si vous arrivez a vous faire comprendre... Quoi qu’il en soit vous serez en sécurité dans une ville très agréable.

    We have just spent 5 nights in Kavala, 17-21 August 2018. These notes are, hopefully, to save fellow yachties the frustration we went through because of wrong and outdated information. Forget Imray 12th Edition, 2014, Noonsite, Cruiserwiki, and all the other online sites, when it comes to mooring a yacht in Kavala! The entire harbour/port is under the administration of the Port Authority of Kavala (PAK). There are two, and only two, areas where a yacht can moor: a)      In the NW corner in front of the Nautical Yacht Club of Kavala (NOK) building, restaurants and café. These first class, new floating pontoons and finger jetties, with plenty of power and water towers has, primae facie, the appearance of a “marina”. Although not strictly a marina, for simplicity I shall continue to refer to this area as the marina. It’s either beam to or bow lines are provided. No anchoring. b)      The length of the north, E-W quay between the outer limit of the marina and the area used by large fishing boats to the east. This area is readily identified by yellow, steel framed, steps to enable access from boat to quay and vice versa. An added complication of this area is that over half of the places have permanent bow moorings, with boats on them or boats which we observed to come and go during the time we were there. For yachts in transit it’s anchor and stern to. Power and water towers are installed but not with the same density as on the pontoons so a long cable/hose could be required. Both areas are administered by PAK. Although many NOK members may have their boats in the marina they have contracts with PAK. There is no point in contacting NOK as, if they reply, they will simply tell you to contact PAK. Contact details for PAK are: Tel: +30 2510 225192 e-mail: info@portkavala.gr. They are located on the 1st floor of the building on the front with a Greek flag and a blue and white sign on the balcony of the 6th floor. A. O. KABAAA.  (The 3rd A is and upside down V!). The entrance is on the east facing side of the building. This is also where you can get the electronic keys for power/water. 10€ refundable deposit and whatever credit you want on the key. FYI about 300 liters of water cost us 0.80€ and power for the 5 nights was about 5€ – we don’t have air conditioning! NB: Keys are also available from the car park attendant kiosk as you leave the NOK area, in front of the funfair. However be aware that they charge an effective 3€ commission; you only get 7€ of credit for 10€ payment! After 11 years of sailing the Med we have added Kavala to our list of favourites. It is a delightful town with an abundance of top rate, “different” restaurants and perfect to use as a base for travelling inland. Mooring fees for a 13.6m (45ft) yacht were 1.50€/night!! For comparable quality facilities we would have paid 150€/night in Croatia.
