ARRIVAL INFORMATION DETAILS
Advanced reservations are strongly recommended at Blue Haven Marina. Slips are not guaranteed without a confirmed reservation. We ask that you provide advanced notice, when feasible, of your approximate arrival time so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience to you.
Please Note: Captains and his/her assignee must check-in/check-out with the marina office for each stay unless otherwise arranged with marina management.
|Check-Out: 10:00 am||Check-In: 2:00pm|
When feasible, we request an estimated time of arrival 24hr in advance so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience.
Upon approach, please contact the marina office on VHF Channel 16 to obtain directions to the slip assignment. A skilled dock attendant will report to the slip to assist with docking, line handling, and connections. Once comfortably settled, we ask that you visit our marina office to check-in. The staff will answer any questions you have.
Upon departure, we request you contact the marina office 1-2 hours prior to departure to ensure all items are in order. A receipt can be provided at the marina office or emailed upon request to the email address provided at the time of check-in. If all items are in order, please hail the marina office on VHF Channel 16 if you would like assistance with disconnection and lines.
EARLY CHECK-IN / LATE CHECK-OUT
If a slip is occupied after 1:00 pm on the day of your scheduled departure, an additional night’s dockage will be charged to your account.
We will do our absolute best to accommodate your requests whenever possible. In most cases, if your slip is available prior to 12:00pm on the day of your arrival, or after 1:00 pm on the day of your departure, we will allow you to remain in the slip at no additional charge. Prior arrangements must be made with the marina office for early arrival or delayed departure in order to avoid unnecessary charges.
In the event an early check-in and/or late check-out is unable to be accommodated in your currently slip, we will try to accommodate by making another slip available until such time your slip is available or you are ready to depart the marina.
In the event a temporary slip is made available to you, and you do not relocate the vessel, the marina reserves the right to charge you two times (2x’s) the original daily rate for each night you occupy the temporary slip.
This is necessary as at times, the marina operates at full occupancy and failure to relocate the vessel could negatively affect other guests.
Please note: Cancellation policies are subject to change. Please refer to your reservation confirmation or contact the marina office direct for confirmation of cancellation policy. Cancellation requests must be submitted directly to the marina. Any cancellation requests received through the IGY Marinas website are not considered proper cancellation.

CUSTOMS & IMMIGRATION INFORMATION
- Please note: We do our best to ensure this information is up-to-date, however, this is strictly for informational purposes only. We recommend reviewing the Customs and Immigration site for the destination requirements.
Customs & Immigration Office
Immigration Office is located near the marina, however, transportation is highly suggested and can be arranged prior to arrival.
Those reaching the port of entry after closing hours are required to raise a quarantine flag and report in the next morning.
Any foreign vessel arriving to the islands must proceed directly to a port. Blue Haven Marina in Leeward Going-Through is designated as an official port of entry. Likewise, no vessel shall depart on a voyage to a place outside the Islands from any place other than a port.
The Customs Ordinance further provides that the master of every vessel arriving at a port from any place outside the Islands shall immediately upon arrival deliver to the Collector of Customs a Customs Declaration Form, available at the marina office. A valid passport and a return ticket are required for all visitors. Most countries do not need a visa but check with your local Embassy for details.
The master of such a vessel should immediately notify the customs officer of the vessel’s arrival with the following forms:
- Form No. C108 – vessel’s arrival form
- Form No. C125 – stores on board
- Form No. C124 – departure form
Fees for entry into and departure from the Islands for a pleasure craft are currently $50.00 USD each (total of $100 USD). These fees entitle the pleasure craft to remain in the islands for a period of seven (7) days without paying any customs duties. Once the seven (7) day period has passed, the master must obtain a Cruising Permit from the Collector of Customs using Form No. C113. The fee for this Cruising Permit is currently $300.00. This entitles the pleasure craft to remain within the Islands for a period of three (3) months without having to pay customs duties. Additional fees will be applied at an hourly rate if the customs official is required to attend to a vessel outside normal working hours.
At the expiration of three (3) months, the vessel must be re-exported and the Cruising Permit shall be returned. Without prior consent of the collector, no pleasure craft shall be issued with more than two (2) cruising permits in any period of 12 months.
