With a full-service yacht club, luxury accommodations, and numerous attractions, it is no wonder that Frigate Bay is popular among sailors. You may have to make a stop at an official port of entry before docking, but the closest one is near enough that this isn't a problem at all.
If you're just wanting to experience some time on the open water, without the cost and responsibility associated with renting a boat you should take a day sailing excursion. See the table below to get names and phone numbers for area excursion services.

If you'd like to get to Frigate Bay by sailing yourself, your first stop will have to be in Port Zante in Basseterre. This is the official port of entry, where you will dock your boat and meet with customs and immigrations officials who will be responsible for approving all of the boat's official paperwork plus review the passport of everyone on board. There will be a $7.50(USD) customs charge, as well as the fee that accompanies docking your boat at the marina.
If you plan to sail to Nevis, make sure to ask for a Boat Pass, which will prevent you from having to clear customs a second time. With any questions, you can contact Port Zante's marina manager at 869-466-5021 or over VHF Radio Channel 16 or 68.
