Tenders from visiting vessels land their passengers at the Trinity Landing pontoons, which are located 100m south of No. 1 fairway buoy in Cowes Harbour. The landing is rigged with a small marquee and a welcoming party will be on station to assist with the landing of passengers. The pontoon is suitable for wheel chair and assisted passengers, with coach parking facilities located at the head of the gangway ramp.

Cruise vessels under 130m calling at Cowes generally anchor in anchorage 'C1' although vessels of up to 150m can be accommodated dependent on suitable weather conditions. Vessels over 130m are generally anchored outside of Cowes Harbour in 'Alpha Anchorage', which is under the jurisdiction of ABP Southampton.
Vessels wishing to anchor in the 'C1' anchorage would embark a Cowes pilot, and those wishing to anchor in the 'Alpha Anchorage' an ABP Southampton pilot.
