The 1988 Teignmouth (Pilotage) Harbour Revision Order, gave THC responsibility as the Competent Harbour Authority (CHA) for pilotage within the Teign Estuary and as such pilotage is compulsory for all vessels in excess of 30 metres.
The port has a highly experienced team of pilots who navigate all vessels entering and leaving Teignmouth as well as managing all maneuvering activities in the confines of the harbour. Teignmouth also has a modern Damen Stan tug, which is able to assist vessels with limited maneuverability. The entrance to Teignmouth is regularly monitored and dredged to maintain a working channel at all times.
THC has recently signed a contract with Torbay Council to provide pilotage services on their behalf for an initial 1 year trial period. Contact Pike Ward for more details and to book a pilot. Link
