For boats

The town is located at W end of Golfo Nuevo. This gulf is not easy for sailing. Strong E or W winds, short waves and currents makes voyage uncomfortable.
Call Prefectura Naval of Puerto Madryn (call sign L4S, CH16), one hour before arriving or just before departing. .
There is no marina, pier or other structures to moor. You have to drop the anchor in front of Club Nautico Atlantico Sur (white building with blue strips) north of Muelle Piedrabuena. Drop the anchor about 400 meters from the beach (depends on tide) and 100-200 of the wharves Muelle Piedrabuena. Depth about 6-10 meters. Good holding.  Anyway it’s still not a save place, open for N-NE-E winds and waves from that directions.
In the front of Yacht Club (CNAS) you can find few buoys, but they are for small yachts only (less that 8m). There is no other buoys (FEB2016) to moor, shown on many charts or pilot books.
Best landing area is Muelle Piedrabuena (there are stairs from the water up to the wharf, sometimes occupied by see lions. Good option is to climb up by the pilot boats moored in the middle of the wharf. Do not leave the dinghy there. Landing on the beach is possible, but it’s a long distance and do not forget about tides.
After anchoring visit Prefectura office ASAP, it’s located 100 m north (turn right) of Muelle Piedrabuena.
Puerto Madryn is a port of entry and has a custom office (Aduana).
