The approach to Port Louis Marina and St George’s is straightforward in all weathers. The buoyed marina fairway is lit and easy to identify, day and night, making it very easy to safely find your marina slip.
Don’t forget! Grenada uses the American system (“Red Right Returning”) so red buoys mark the starboard side of the channel on your arrival.
Please pay special attention to commercial traffic when entering or leaving Port Louis Marina. It is important for yachtsmen to keep a good watch, especially along the Carenage waterfront in St George’s itself.
On approach to the marina, call the Capitainerie on Channel 14 for instruction on your marina slip.
Please note: vessels intending to berth in the Port of St. George must follow Port regulations, which state a mandatory requirement for all vessels of 200 gross tons and above to have a pilot from Grenada Ports Authority on board upon entering and leaving the Port of St. George. Pilots require 24 hours notice in advance of the vessel’s arrival and 3 hours in advance of the vessel’s departure.
