Approach to the Marina
Please call the Marina Dockmaster on VHF 16/68 just prior to your arrival so we can have staff ready to take your lines and assist with your arrival. The marina office is open from 8am to 6.30pm, 365 days a year.
Clearing In and Immigration
Visitors to the British Virgin Islands are welcome for up to one month, with a return or ongoing ticket, evidence of adequate means of support and pre-arranged accommodations. Visitors must not seek employment whilst in the territory.
Visitors entering the BVI should proceed directly to a port of entry. Because space at jetties is limited, vessels are allowed to anchor in the harbour before making customs entry. The captain can deal with clearance procedures on behalf of the crew and passengers.
1. Ship’s papers.
2. Valid passports for all crew and passengers. US and Canadian citizens can enter with an authentic birth certificate plus two valid photo IDs if they don’t have a passport. Vessels travelling between the British Virgin Islands and US Virgin Islands must clear out of BVI waters at one of the customs offices listed, and clear into US waters either at Cruz Bay, St Johns or Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas. When entering US waters, remember that all non-US crew must have valid US visas. On returning to the BVI, you must clear in again. US visas must be obtained before arrival in the Caribbean. The US embassies in the Caribbean will only issue visas to Caribbean nationals.

During the 2012 Summer/Fall period, new Walcon docks were installed in the area by the fuel dock. Walcon installed five superyacht berths each capable of taking yachts up to 40 metres in length. Walcon specified the heavy-duty version of its System 2000 pontoon model. Three metres wide and designed to withstand high loads, these pontoons have the added advantage of being made in aluminum.
All animals entering the territory must be declared at customs. All pets must have current health certificates and vaccinations, especially with respect to rabies. Contact the Chief Agricultural Officer (284-494-3701 ext 6123) for details of clearance regulations before entering BVI waters with a pet. For further advice, contact the BVI Humane Society at 284-494-2284.
These are available from the marina office. There is no charge for the use of dock trolleys. Trolleys which are not returned will be billed in full to the boat to which they are registered.
