The historic town and modern ferry port of Fishguard, in the north of Pembrokeshire, is extending its cruise call capabilities from summer 2016. The new tender berth will allow for larger cruise ships to moor within the port, in addition to the existing sheltered alongside berth for expedition size cruise vessels. Disembarking passengers are usually welcomed ashore with traditional choral and dance displays on the quayside performed by local school groups. Coaches are provided at the quayside for onward tours and excursions, while restroom and refreshment vending machines are available on the quayside railway concourse.
Fishguard Port is fully covered by digital CCTV. No 4 berth is fully fenced in a manner approved by Transec, while No 2 berth is secured by temporary fencing before cruise ship arrival. A natural gateway to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with its extensive flora and fauna, the port also offers easy access to the city of St Davids – spiritual capital of Wales – and to many other attractions throughout the county.
