Having started as a disused quarry, the marina has a maximum depth of 60m. However, given some sides have slopes, there are a few berths with 2m at low tide, but the rest have 7m plus.

The bottom is home to excavation equipment left by the Royal Engineers when blasting the entrance. The original fuel barge lies on the floor at the end of pontoon D.
