Cruising Information

Moorings Fees and Taxes
Anchorages and buoys are available all along the coast, a small fee is mandatory in a number of the bays.

Cruising Permits
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.

Night Time Sailing
You must be moored at least one hour before sunset at all of our locations. Night Sailing is not allowed without permission from the base manager. Decision to allow night sailing is based on your skill level and can be arranged in advance by filling out the sailing resume but is not guaranteed. 

Cruising Area Limits
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 however, clients must clear customs as they 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. Two persons minimum on board.
