The Marina

Located along the western side of Capella Marigot Bay Resort, Capella Marina is Saint Lucia’s foremost berthing destination for premier yachts from around the world.

Long recognized as one of the Caribbean’s most secure anchoring spots, Marigot Bay provides protection to ships during the roughest of seas. The bay is known as a “hurricane hole” due to its location on the west side of the island, where it is surrounded by mountains and experiences minimal tidal changes.  Indeed, several major maritime insurance companies routinely recognize Marigot Bay as a true safe harbor.

Affording convenient access to the Caribbean, Capella Marina at Marigot Bay is a favorite starting and drop off point for yacht charters due to the large-scale marina and convenient, direct flights to and from both the US and the UK.

Regulations & Fees

Capella Marina at Marigot Bay is classified as an international port entry, and houses the sea port authority as well as customs and immigration for the island of Saint Lucia.  

Yachts not arriving from international waters may stay for 72 hours without clearing customs and immigration.

Regarding immigration conditions, visitors can request to stay up to six months in the first instance. Bona fide visitors and yachtsmen can expect to be granted a minimum of 42 days. Applications for extensions must be made in person at the Immigration Office in downtown Castries. There is an EC$100 fee per 21 day period.

A US$21 embarkation tax (which is collected at the airports) is in effect when a visitor leaves by air after arriving by sea. An EC$15 seaport embarkation tax is levied if an arrival by sea joins a departing yacht as a passenger.

The Saint Lucia Air & Seaports Authority (SLASPA) assigns boat fees according to two classifications:

  1. Commercial yachts carry passengers who have paid as individuals or groups for the purpose of pleasure travel. (These vessels require an occasional license, determined by overall length, to cruise.)
  2. Private yachts, including bare-boat charters, do not engage in plying passengers on hire and are not required to pay the occasional license fee.

All yachts pay fees for pratique, clearance, navigational aids, and passenger dues - determined by vessel weight or length. Passenger dues do not apply to master and crew on private yachts, but do on commercial vessels.

Yachts wishing to anchor anywhere in Saint Lucian waters other than their original port of entry must obtain a Permit to Moor from customs at a cost of EC$25. This allows the yacht to remain in local waters for an additional 72 hours.

Snorkeling, diving, or spearfishing excursions in areas outside of SMMA control require permits from the Department of Fisheries. A local dive guide must also be present.

Sport fishing requires a craft license costing EC$270/US$100 from the Fisheries Office. Recreational/casting requires an EC$50/US$20 license.

Capella Marina has capacity to berth 42 yachts (28 at maximum yacht size) along with 20 mooring locations anchored in the bay. Upon arrival and during their stay, guests will have access to the Capella Personal Assistants to arrange on-land and off-shore excursions, and an array of additional exclusive services and amenities offered to our guests.  Read more about our Personal Assistants and the services they have to offer here.
