The marina is located in the Oranjestad harbor channel just east of the Cruise ship dock. You will see a large concrete mooring bollard in the entry to the Marina basin. Keep this to your port when entering. Inside the basin there will be two white buoys, one will have a “No Wake” sign on it. These buoys mark the 10 ft line, The SE is deeper and the NW is shallow. Keep these buoys to port. The water depth at the entry to the Marina is 12½ ft.

Recommended med moor procedure in our marina:
As the prevailing wind will be on your starboard aft quarter we recommend dropping the starboard anchor to a bit to starboard of your slip (Basically in front of the slip to the north of your slip). A second anchor can be dropped to port of your slip if you are staying more then a day or two. We recommend laying the anchor close to the buoy line of the two buoys that demark the 10 ft line.
We can give you suggestions as to where to drop the anchors by radio when you come in. Normally this goes of without a hitch. If there is a problem we find that this is caused by the fact that the anchor does not get dropped far enough away or that the anchor does get dropped far away but then gets dragged closer to the dock as the boat is maneuvering in. We have found that 120 to 150 ft of chain out is ample (depth where you will be dropping the anchor is about 14 ft).
Our dock is a wood deck on a steel structure. For the larger vessels (over 80 ft) we have 1/2″ chain around the pilings to which we will secure your mooring lines. We request you pass us a shackle to shackle your line to the chain. If you don’t have shackles please pass us the ‘wrong’ end of the mooring line, the end without the eye, so that we can tie a bowline onto the chain.
We have divers available to float in anchors if necessary.
