Barbados Port Marina Barbados, Barbados

Barbados Port marina is ideally situated just a short walk away from Bridgetowns attraction and shops. The best and easiest way to explore the town is by foot. The main street of the town is Broad Street and is the main area to go shopping in Bridgetown and it should take you a few hours to explore the numerous duty free shops and craft stores along this street.

At the west end of Broad Street you will find St.Mary’s Anglican Church, the 2nd oldest church on the island, which was built in 1825.

As you travel east along this street you will come across a great store to visit on Broad Street called Cave Shepherd. This is the island’s leading duty free shopping centre. You can pretty much find anything here from souvenirs and beach wear to high end jewelry and cosmetics. Nearby is Swan Street which is pedestrianised and has lots of shops and street stalls selling jewelery, crafts, fruit & vegetables. Fish can be found at the Oistins Fish Village. the town has several supermarkets.

Barbados Yacht Club welcomes visiting yachtsmen and allows collection of water in Jeri cans free of charge, will hold mail, and can send or receive e-mail on their behalf. There is a beach party at the club every Friday night.

Technically just outside the Caribbean Barbados is very definately part of the West Indian / Caribbean culture.

Anchorage

Carlisle bay has good holding and is fairly well sheltered from the prevailing winds, but it can become crowded.

The Approach

The approach from seaward is straightforward with Brigetown, easy to reconise with its large cruise ship port and and fuel tanks at the South East corner of the port. On approach and entry keep a lookout for the very large cruise ships that visit the port.

On approach, yachts should call the signal station on VHF Channel 12 (call sign 8PB) and will be advised where to proceed. Once permission is given, the yacht should go into the Deepwater Harbour and unless advised to the contrary come alongside the Cross Berth, in the southern corner.

The Entrance

Entry into the marina is tight from the large amount of yachts that are berthed. Many yachts prefer to anchor in Carlisle Bay and use the dinghy or the "water taxis" to get ashore.

Dinghies can be left at the Boatyard jetty which has some facilities for cruising boats, such as toilets, showers and water. The Boatyard charges a daily fee to use the Dinghy Dock.

Formalities

Bridgetown is an official port of entry.
