Cruising Grounds

Cruising Area Restrictions 
We highly recommend planning your cruising itinerary along the west coast of Martinique only due to the challenging conditions and open waters on the eastern side. You may travel to other islands, but please keep in mind that you must clear customs as you pass through each country and generally fees are associated with the clearing process. Please discuss with you Vacation Planner if you have any questions.

It is strictly forbidden to sail alone, we require two persons minimum on board.

Charts & Pilot Books
All the charts and pilot books you will need for the sailing area are issued at your chart briefing.

Nighttime Sailing/Cruising 
You must be moored at least one hour before sunset. Night Sailing is not allowed without permission from the base manager. The decision to allow night sailing is based on your skill level and can be requested in advance. You will need to fill out the Power resume for the base to review but we cannot guarantee approval.

Cruising Permits & Taxes
Each national territory, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent, the Grenadines & Grenada, charges fees. These are cruising permits, harbor dues and custom clearance fees. Average costs for a 45ft yacht with 6 people on a 2 week charter is approximately £60. Some marinas/moorings charge a fee of about £6-9.

Moorings Fees & Taxes
