Enjoy the Milford Haven Waterway

We're here to help you enjoy the waterway safely.


The Milford Haven Waterway is a deep water estuary on the west coast of the UK. It offers 22 miles of sheltered navigable waters and is a haven for marine leisure activities. 

A journey up river takes you from open sea along the banks of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park through dramatic industrial infrastructure usually busy with both commercial and leisure traffic before rejoining the National Park in the tranquil upper reaches. Along the way you'll encounter Naval forts, pretty beaches, waterside villages and towns and interesting wildlife - you may even spot a seal or two.

We want to ensure you stay safe and have many happy adventures on the Waterway.

Every five years, we produce the Milford Haven Waterway Recreation Plan.

It explains how we engage with the Waterway’s stakeholders and partner organisations to ensure a sustainable approach to recreation on the Waterway.

We know how special this environment is and we all need to play a part in its protection. We have signed the Clean Seas Pledge and remain committed to waste reduction and reduction in plastic use, but also to recovery of marine litter where possible.

We ask that all users - whether commercial or recreation - remain responsible for their litter and take it home with them.
