Description:

Barcadera container port is located 3 miles South East of Oranjestad. The majority of ships and cargo are handled in Barcadera and the container port is off-limits to yachts.

That said, this is where recreational craft must clear into Aruba.

Cruiser highlights:

Easier clearance than Oranjestad harbor; outside of the hurricane belt; English speaking; good provisioning; convenient marinas; boatyard and storage; airport; beautiful beaches; duty-free imports; good bus system; restaurants and diverse tourism options.

Entry notes or cautions:

Before entering the harbor from sea, call Aruba Port Control on VHF CH16/11 for permission to enter.

The entry buoy to Barcadera harbor is at:  12° 28’834″ N,  70° 00’430″ W.

Customs dock Barcadera is at:  12° 28’855″ N,  70° 00’014″ W.

The blue freighter that was a good landmark to avoid the shoal when entering Barcadera Harbor, is not there anymore. It is very important yachts stay in the shipping channel until abeam of the customs dock to avoid running into the shoal.
