Docking

The port of entry nearest Spanish Town is located in Gun Creek Ferry Dock and was only recently made official.  Once you've sailed in and cleared customs, you'll be able to make your way over to the fully functional marina.  In order to do so, you'll need to present officials with your boat's documentation and a passport for every person aboard.  Citizens of the United States and Canada need only a notorized copy of their birth certificate to enter the country, but in order to return to their home country, a passport will be necessary so it just makes good sense to have your passport on hand.  Customs fees change regularly, but you can expect to spend somewhere in the realm of $25 and $35(USD) a day.  Do note that they only accept cash.  

The marina here has 120 slips available for rent, along with a 70 ton travel lift, full service boat yard, and a dry storage program which will haul and store your vessel out of water is need be.  Amenities at the harbor include fuel, water, ice, power, access to cable and internet, and a garbage disposal service.

Within the marina complex you can take care of all of your provisioning needs, hit the ATM, dine at the restaurants, do your laundry, and get in some shopping before your sailing adventure takes you elsewhere.
