Port Control

Plymouth’s Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) is based at Longroom Port Control. Visiting vessels >20m LOA should contact Longroom at the required reporting points as shown on current Plymouth Admiralty Charts and should not enter the port without first communicating with Longroom on VHF Channel 14. Smaller vessels should, if in doubt, communicate with Longroom to inform them of your intentions.

For movements taking place in the Hamoaze, port control is based at Flagstaff (VHF 14, call sign Flag).

The Port is extensively buoyed showing the deep water shipping channel. All mariners should be aware that the area north of Plymouth Breakwater has been designated a Narrow Channel (Rule 9, IRPCS).
