Saint Lucia, Soufriere: Mooring Fees

Saint Lucia's west coast, from Marigot Bay to Anse L’Ivrogne. Managed by Soufriere Marine Management Association (SMMA).

Below is the current info. on mooring fees that may be of interest to noonsite readers (see 2014 prices at bottom).

Approximately nine miles of the west coast of St. Lucia – from Marigot Bay to the Pitons – is under the management of the Soufriere Marine Management Association (SMMA).  Although there is a tank farm just south of Marigot Bay, the remainder of this coast is very scenic and appealing as an anchorage.  However, there is very limited anchoring, and most boats need to use the moorings provided and maintained by the SMMA.

The SMMA does not charge for anything other than the use of the moorings. Those mooring fees are based on the length of your boat and the duration of your intended stay.

The length of your boat determines the ‘class’ to which you belong:
Class 1 is less than or equal to 40 feet;
Class 2 is more than 40 feet but less than or equal to 70 feet;
Class 3 is more than 70 feet.

Duration of stay is categorized as either:
1) one or two days;
2) three days to less than or equal to one week.

Class 1 boats are charged US$15/EC$40 for one or two days and US$30/ED$80 for three to seven days. Class 2 boats are charged US$20/ED$54 for one or two days and US$40/EC$108 for three to seven days. Class 3 boats are charged US$60/EC$162 per day – regardless of duration of stay.

The SMMA has a website at www.smma.org.lc, and their e-mail address is smma@candw.lc.  However, they did not respond to my e-mail inquiry.
