Stayed here last year (twice) and they have completed their building renovations. Wow. Really nice waterfront bar & casual gathering spot (in addition to the existing restaurant upstairs). Brand new gym and Dockmaster offices are very well done. John the Dockmaster & Obie are helpful & accommodating as ever. Best to arrive near slack tide if possible unless you are on the face dock or a T head.

We've been staying here since 1987 when coming to Nassau by boat. Good marina, wooden docks but in good condition. Electricity has always been good for us. A lot of current can come through Nassau Harbor, so be ready for that when docking if it's not slack tide. And you can get some rocking in a cold front. You have a nice restaurant on site, and a good marine store right across the street. Bathrooms are okay, and we have found security to be very good in the marina. I wouldn't go anywhere after dark from here, but it's a fun walk to the fish fry shacks under the bridge for lunch.

Docking a boat in the Bahamas can be a fun and exciting experience, but it can also be challenging if you're not familiar with the process. Here are a few things to keep in mind when docking your boat in the Bahamas:

Choosing the right dock in the Bahamas

When choosing a dock, try to consider the size of your boat and the depth of the water. Most marinas in the Bahamas have docks that can accommodate boats of various sizes, but you'll want to make sure that the dock you choose is suitable for your boat. Check the water depth to ensure that it is deep enough for your boat, especially if you have a larger vessel.

Knowing the proper docking process

Here are a few steps to follow when docking your boat:

  • Approach the dock slowly and at a 45-degree angle.
  • Use your boat's momentum to bring it alongside the dock.
  • Secure your boat to the dock using lines and fenders.
  • Adjust your lines to ensure that your boat is secure and won't move around too much.

Keep in mind that docking can be affected by weather conditions, such as wind and waves. You might need to be prepared and adjust your approach and use additional lines and fenders if necessary.

Being extra careful in docking in shallow waters

In some areas of the Bahamas, the water can be shallow. If you're docking in shallow water, you may need to take extra precautions to ensure that your boat doesn't run aground. Here are a few tips:

  • Use a depth finder to monitor the water depth.
  • Approach the dock slowly and carefully.
  • Keep your boat's engine neutral to avoid stirring up the bottom.
  • Use a boat hook to help guide your boat into position.

Here are some of the popular marinas and locations to consider to dock your boat in the Bahamas, along with their estimated rates per foot per night.

Nassau $4.00 - $5.00 per foot
Nassau $3.50 - $4.50 per foot
New Providence $4.00 - $5.00 per foot
Abacos $3.50 - $4.50 per foot
Grand Bahama Island $3.50 - $4.50 per foot

Eleuthera $4.00 - $5.00 per foot
Long Island $3.50 - $4.50 per foot
Berry Islands $3.50 - $4.50 per foot

Explore docking options at Nassau and New Providence

Another option is the Bay Street Marina , located in the heart of Nassau and within walking distance of many attractions.

yacht haven marina bahamas

New Providence, the most populous island in the Bahamas, also has several marinas to choose from. One of the most popular is the Albany Marina, which offers world-class amenities and is located near several luxury resorts.

Consider docking at the islands of Abacos and Grand Bahama

The Abacos, a group of islands and cays in the northern Bahamas, is a popular destination for boaters. Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco Island is a hub for boating activity, and the Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour Marina is a popular choice for boaters looking for full-service amenities.

Grand Bahama Island, located to the northwest of New Providence, is another popular destination for boaters. The Grand Bahama Yacht Club and Port Lucaya Marina are two of the most popular marinas on the island.

Try docking at the islands of Eleuthera and other Bahamas islands

Eleuthera, a long, thin island to the east of Nassau, has several marinas to choose from. The Cape Eleuthera Marina is a popular choice, offering full-service amenities and easy access to several nearby islands.

Other islands in the Bahamas also have marinas, including Long Island, which is home to the Flying Fish Marina , and the Berry Islands, which are home to the Great Harbour Cay Marina . The Exumas , a chain of islands to the southeast of Nassau, also have several marinas to choose from.

Seasonal considerations for docking

The Bahamas is considered a part of the Caribbean Islands, so they have the same sailing seasons . During peak season, which typically runs from December to June, the demand for slips is high, and prices are at their highest. However, during the off-season, which runs from July to November, prices are lower, and slips are easier to come by.

If you plan to dock during the peak season, it's essential to book your slip well in advance to avoid disappointment. Many marinas in the Bahamas offer online booking systems, which make it easy to reserve your spot ahead of time.

During the off-season, you may be able to negotiate a better rate for your slip. Some marinas offer discounts for extended stays, so if you plan to stay for an extended period, be sure to ask about any available discounts.

It's also worth noting that the weather can play a significant role in the cost of docking your boat in the Bahamas. Hurricane season runs from June to November, and during this time, many marinas may require you to sign a waiver acknowledging the risks associated with docking during hurricane season.

Electricity use during docking

When docking your boat at a marina in the Bahamas, you'll need to connect to shore power to keep your boat's batteries charged and to power your appliances. Most marinas offer electricity connections, but you can go check the voltage and amperage of the connection to ensure that it's compatible with your boat's electrical system.

Some marinas offer both 110V and 220V connections, while others only offer one or the other. It's also important to check the amperage of the connection, as some marinas only offer 30-amp connections, while others offer 50-amp or even 100-amp connections.

When you arrive at the marina, the dockmaster will help you connect to shore power and ensure that everything is working properly. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask for assistance.

Choosing between mooring or docking

When it comes to docking your boat in the Bahamas, there are two options available: mooring and docking. Mooring is when you anchor your boat in a designated area and secure it to a buoy or anchor. Docking is when you tie your boat to a dock or pier.

Mooring is generally less expensive than docking, but it also has its drawbacks. You may not have access to shore power or fresh water. Additionally, you may need to use a dinghy to get to shore. However, if you are looking for a more secluded location, mooring may be the better option for you.

Docking, on the other hand, offers more amenities and convenience. Many docks offer shore power, fresh water, and other amenities such as showers and laundry facilities. However, docking can be more expensive than mooring, especially if you are looking for a prime location.

When deciding whether to moor or dock your boat in the Bahamas, consider your budget, your preferences, and your itinerary. If you plan to stay in one location for an extended period, docking may be the better option. If you prefer a more secluded location or plan to move around frequently, mooring may be the better choice.
