Arrival Information Details

Advanced reservations are strongly recommended at the Red Frog Beach Marina. Berthing is 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: 1:00 pm Check-In: 2:00 pm


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 arrival into the Government Cut, contact the marina office on VHF Channel 68 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 68 if you would like assistance with disconnection and lines.

Early Check-in / Late Check-out

If a slip is occupied after 2:00 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 2:00 pm 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.

Temporary Slips

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.

Bahia Roja Tribe of Bocas del Toro

In working with the Bahia Rojo Tribe in Bocas del Toro – IGY staff and volunteers from Red Frog Island Beach Marina collected school supplies for the children currently attending school within the tribe. The Bahia Rojo are located next to the marina and are indigenous to the area of Bocas del Toro. Red Frog Island Beach Marina donated 50% of all collected contractor fees towards the initiative with a goal to raise $2,000 USD for school supplies. In addition to providing school supplies for the students, a laptop and Wi-Fi connectivity was provided from the marina and its Wi-Fi technician!

Since Bocas del Toro is an island just off the coast of the mainland, the school supplies were purchased off island and transported back to the Bahia Rojo’s school.

Red Frog Beach Marina Rules

To make your stay with us more enjoyable, the following set of guidelines should be followed. These are merely suggested rules of etiquette and regulations to make the Marina and its facilities more enjoyable for all customers.

  1. There is a “NO WAKE” zone throughout the lagoons. Please make sure that you are thoughtful of these areas.
  2. Do not leave garbage on the docks to be picked up. Garbage should be bagged, tied and then properly placed in designated receptacles, or placed in the garbage truck, not loosely scattered or abandoned.
  3. Oils and fuels should be disposed of properly and not in the Marina trashcan. Please ask for assistance when disposing of oils, fuels, or chemicals. Your concern for the environment helps.
  4. Try not to introduce any effluents into the Marina Lagoon. Use holding tanks if possible.
  5. Do not attempt to turn on your own water and electricity. Please have a dock attendant take care of this so you can be properly metered in and out. Using pliers or screwdrivers will damage the equipment, for which you will be charged. It is suggested that you read meters along with our dock attendant to ensure accuracy in your metered charges for utilities.
  6. Anyone caught taking water from another yacht’s tap shall be responsible for the entire water cost of the metered yacht. Please use your own water.
  7. Keep power cords and water hoses in a neat and orderly fashion so that no one will trip in the dark or while carrying objects.
  8. After receiving prior approval from the Marina Office, please wash sails on lawn areas where water outlets and drying spaces are available, or do so aboard your yacht.
  9. If Marina Office has approved, please make sure that when marking anchor chains with paint, use paper or cardboard beneath your chain to keep wet paint off the docks and other customers’ shoes.
  10. When cleaning dinghies, make sure you rinse debris and growth off of the docks when finished.
  11. Lock your boat when leaving it unattended.
  12. Lock your dinghies and outboard at night.
  13. Try to keep excessive noise down after 10 pm as some people do need their rest.
  14. No boat repairs are to be performed at the boat dock. If repairs need to be performed please contact the Marina Office.
  15. Barbecue and cooking in general is prohibited on the docks. Barbecue and cooking should be done on board in suitable equipment and be self-contained. Any other way is dangerous and frowned upon. Kindly clean up after yourself when finished. Charcoal ash and debris are not to be disposed of into the lagoon.
  16. When docking, keep bowsprits and davits over water’s edge and not protruding across the docks.
  17. If bright deck lights or spotlights are to be used at night, avoid pointing them at nearby boats, especially down at or into their cabins.
  18. Try to control your pets. Some people do get upset by having animals on/or around their boat, specially when nature calls on their boat.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
