What is EKP

I'm going to sail the sea, by my actions they will know me.

Nautical proverb

At EKP, we plan, manage, promote and operate the ports and recreational nautical installations of Euskadi and the associated services.

Euskadiko Kirol Portua, S.A. (EKP) is a Basque Government-owned company set up in 2000 to manage all the marinas and jetties of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country (ACBC). After all these years EKP is characterised by a management system based on the principles of all-round quality, environmental sustainability, equality and social responsibility. It strives to achieve social integration for recreational sailing, and to contribute to the social and economic development of port facilities.

Between the marinas and jetties of Molla-Hondarribia, Hondarribia, Donostia, Orio, Getaria, Deba, Mutriku, Mundaka, Bermeo, Armintza and Plentzia there are over 3500 moorings for vessels with lengths ranging from 6 to 16 m, and a total of 28,000 m3 of technical areas for repairs and wintering.

Social responsibility and commitment to added value

Social responsibility means seeking to extent the potential of marinas to the public in general. In this regard, at EKP we are acutely aware that we must seek to make our marinas accessible ot everyone, and foster gender equality.

We help to arrange sports activities on the water at the marinas that we manage. This means not just financial cooperation but also seconding staff and facilities free of charge.

EKP aspires to work under the tourist policies implemented by the Basque Government and to forge close links with local and cross-border organisations so as to strengthen the role of our marinas as a gateway for water-borne and sporting tourism. Marinas as a gateway to our country. Our marinas can boast around 2500 stopovers by vessels in transit and more than 4000 overnight stays, which means that over 10,000 people arrive in our country via our marinas. This trend is on the increase. Vessels from France, the UK and the Nordic countries stop in at our marinas on their voyages.
