Bermuda Marinas for Yachts

If you have your own yacht or planning to come to Bermuda by your own private boat, there are a number of marinas in Bermuda where you can moor your boat and avail a number of facilities. However St. George's Port is the only port of entry in Bermuda for yachts. 
All yachts must clear customs and Bermuda immigration at the Ordnance Island located in St George's Harbor and connected to the Town of St. George by a bridge. Then you are ready to take your boat to any other water area in Bermuda.

    Hello, I was wondering if I could obtain information regarding keeping my boat in Bermuda for the winter? I understand there are rules/regulations for such an endeavor and I am looking for some guidance. I have reached out to a few marinas but have had no luck receiving a response. I find your blog and site to be most helpful. Thank you,

    Hello, I suggest that you try to reach out to Bermuda Yacht Services (+1 - 441- 297-2798, email: [email protected]). They are one of the best when it comes to mooring/berthing assistance for any kind of a yacht in Bermuda. They also offer a whole host of other services to yachters. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the response could be slow. It's better if you can call them up and talk to them directly over the phone. Best,
