Going sailing on Mariager Fjord
When sailing into Mariager Fjord and leaving Kattegat, you’ll have to use chart number “110 Mariagerfjord”. In the first part of your sailing trip into the fjord, you are sailing into a dug, and should be aware of this. Be careful and sail in between the markings. Fortunately the fjord is very well-marked with floating markings. Once you have passed Dania (by the old cement factories) there is plenty of water – up to 30 meters.
When entering the fjord (10.24E) you have a few miles before reaching the fjord opening. When passing the fjord opening at Als Odde, you will see ditches and windmills by the Overgaard Estate on your left. Going further into the fjord you will pass some small islands surrounded by shallow water and maybe see some waders and other birds. After sailing about one and a half hour you will reach the first harbour, Hadsund Baadlaug. The small harbour is originally an old fishing port and is located just before reaching the bridge in Hadsund. The Hadsund Bridge is the only bridge crossing the fjord.
Continuing your journey into the fjord you’ll have to pass the bridge. Call the watchman on the bridge on ”VHF kanal12” or by phone +45 9857 1214 and get informed on when the bridge will open.
After passing the bridge you will find the next harbour - Hadsund Lystbådehavn on your right. Here you can get fuel for your boat. The tank is self-serviced and accessible at all time.
The journey now continues through the gutter to Kongsdal Baadelaug, which is located on your left after 1 hour of sailing. Going further into the fjord you’ll find Vive Baadlaug on your right – almost at the same point as Kongsdal Harbour – just on the other side of the fjord. When you are halfway through the fjord you will reach Mariager Harbour on your left and Høllet Baadlaug on your right, which is located in an idyllic bay.
Reaching the inner part of the fjord you will have Hobro Harbour on you right side and Hobro Fishing- and Baadlaug on your left.
The association of marinas in Mariager Fjord are looking forward to welcoming you to the most beautiful fjord in Denmark.
