MARINAS
IN GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND

Lucayan Harbour Cruise Facility

Grand Bahama Island has seven marinas, four of which are official ports of entry: Running Mon Marina; the Lucayan Marina and Port Lucaya Marina, both at the heart of Port Lucaya Marketplace, a festive place for fine shopping, dining and entertainment; and in West End, Old Bahama Bay, away from it all at the westernmost tip of the island. The Lucayan Harbour Cruise Facility, even though not a marina, is an official port of entry. The marina at Ocean Reef Yacht  Club can accommodate boats up to 200 feet, but is not an official port of entry.  

Those wishing to visit the island by boat, should plan for the first port of call to be a recognized Port of Entry, such as Port Lucaya or West End. However, upon arrival at any marina, the boat or yacht may be cleared by contacting Bahamas Customs and Immigration and arranging to have officers visit the vessel at the marina. 

In addition, before arrival at the harbour or marina, the Harbour Control/Marina Office should be contacted by radio (VHF Channel 16) and pre-arrival information should be exchanged. This includes the vessel's name, registration number and last port of call. Conversely, on leaving the harbour/marina, pre-departure information should be provided.
