The only port of entry on Bermuda is located on the opposite side of the island in Saint Georges Parish. As you make your way into Bermuda's waters, you can contact the Rescue Coordination Center at VHF Channel 16 to make them aware of your impending arrive, then take the Town Cut Channel to the harbor where customs officials will great you. At this point they will expect to see two copies of your crew list as well as two copies of your list of perishable stores, and you will need to pay the $15(USD) entrance fee.
Be aware that customs operates on regular business hours of 8:00 a.m. To 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you arrive outside of these hours you will have to sail into Powder Hole to wait until they are open once more. If you decide to bypass Customs all together and are caught, you will be fined.
