Port & Harbour Dues
It is a requirement that ALL vessels operating within Portland Harbour pay Port & Harbour Dues
Windsurf, Kitesurf, SUP, Wind SUP, Kite Foil, Wing Foil, Windsurf Foil, E-Foil boards, Kayaks and Small Inflatable Boats are all classified as small vessels.
In order to safely regulate the leisure activities within the harbour, many also require a activity specific permit.
You can pay your Port & Harbour Dues in the following ways:
- Send a completed form and a cheque to Portland Harbour Authority
- Email a completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will call you back for a card payment.
- Pay at one of our Local Agents

What if I own multiple types of small vessel?
If you own kitesurf and windsurf equipment, you will need a kitesurf permit. The kitesurf permit will cover you for kitesurf, windsurf, wing SUP, foil variants of the latter and kayak equipment.
If you have multiple windsurf boards that you swap between, you are only required to pay one set of dues, as it is the same discipline.
If you have a family of three, all of who kitesurf, you will need to purchase three sets of kitesurf permits, one for each family member.
When am I required to pay separate dues?
If you own a RIB and windsurf equipment, you would need to buy separate dues for the RIB and windsurf equipment.
