 Port St Charles - Profile

Location

Port St Charles is a development on the northwest coast of the island.

Position 13° 15'45"N, 59° 38'40"W (marina entrance)

Clearance

See the Barbados Formalities page for full details on clearing into and out of Barbados.

Port St Charles is an official port of entry.

On approach, fly the 'Q' flag and call the dockmaster, on VHF16 or 77 for instructions. You may or may not get an answer.

Arriving vessels should either anchor and dinghy ashore for clearance, or tie up at the fuel dock. The authorities are located at the end of the dock.

On checking out one must carry cash (US$50) for harbour fees because there is no ATM  and credit cards are not accepted.

Holding tanks are obligatory.

In the past, it has been reported that smaller yachts (i.e. less than 150 feet) are not especially welcome at the marina.

Docking

There is a small mega-yacht resort marina with 6 visitor berths for yachts up to 200 feet.

If entering, keep the small red buoys on the right. Reports are that larger yachts (over 35 feet) may find the manoeuvering difficult in the marina basin.

There are 2 buoys for boats over 250ft to rent outside the harbour. Check with the Dockmaster.

Whilst this is a secure place to leave your boat, this is a private residential port complex and there are no facilities outside the marina apart from the nice yacht club.

Once checked in you can anchor just off the marina or move to Speightstown or the Holetown area. These are open anchorages and unprotected from swells, but are pretty. Speightstown has a number of shops, bars and restaurants, but it’s a small township of about 1000 people. The other option is Carlisle Bay in Bridgetown.
