Overnight Mooring Fees
Yachts under 60ft pay $25.00 - $30.00/night. Mooring buoys are used on a first come, first serve basis. The majority of overnight anchorages have mooring buoys, but you should check your cruising guide for further details. Fees can be paid to an agent who makes rounds or at several locations ashore. To be sure you secure a mooring buoy versus anchoring; you should arrive at your overnight anchorage by 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM during the high season and 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM during the low season. These times may even be earlier if there is a local event taking place.

$20/person (only if departing flight is out of Tortola.)
$5/person departure tax for ferries & yachts (payable in cash to the immigrations & customs office.)
