Covid-19 Restrictions on Cruising: Isle of Man


Status Summary

Currently private leisure vessels, unless they have only IoM residents on board, may not land in the Isle of Man. It is permissible to moor up to rest overnight in a bay, to shelter from adverse weather or to obtain urgent repairs but crew must NOT go ashore. For clarification or assistance contact Douglas Harbour Control +44 1624 686612 (24 hour) or VHF Ch.12. Failure to comply may result in conviction with a maximum fine of up to £10,000 or up to 3 months’ imprisonment. The Isle of man Exit Framework envisages this situation to continue until September 2021. Note. The Isle of Man Courts have imprisoned people for what in the UK would be regarded as relatively minor covid-19 offences.
