Since October 2013 Burgas also has a Maritime Station which is located in the public access area of the Port. Passenger ships dock there; it has the capacity to dock large cruise ships. During the summer season a “comet” (hovercraft) travels from and to Burgas – on it you can reach Varna, Nessebar and Sozopol by sea. Port Burgas also has a yacht club, offering a safe marina for yachts and motor-launches; the quay is 6 meters deep. The availability of a crane and security allows land locking and longer periods of stay for yachts.
