Sport fishing boat at South Bank Marina
South Bank Marina on Providenciales, a full-service marina that offers high-quality fuel, maintenance, repair, and concierge services.

Providenciales offers a number of marinas, located on both the northern and southern coasts of the island.

All recreational boat operators must complete an online SailClear declaration at least 24 hours before arrival or departure. This is a combined immigration and customs declaration.

Fuel, electricity, and water supply are typically available, as are pilot boats. Blue Haven Marina and Turtle Cove Marina are adjacent to and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and accommodations.

The smaller south coast facilities are a bit more limited in terms of extras services and amenities, yet the slip rates are a bit more favorable, especially for small cruisers.

Marina Entry and Navigation

Before approaching your chosen marina, radio ahead on VHF channel 16, or call, as the navigation into many sites can be tricky, with reef and shallow hazards.

Once in the marina, wait for instructions from local immigration and customs personnel. As is the case for all visitors to the Turks and Caicos, a passport is required for each passenger and crew arriving. See Passports and Visas for detailed information and requirements.

Anchoring and Cruising Our Islands

Anchoring is legal at many sites in the Turks and Caicos. Any vessel over 60 feet (18 m) requires an Anchoring Permit from the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA).

If you’d like to cruise our countless uninhabited and spectacular cays, an extended stay may be granted by the Turks and Caicos Immigration Department. There are so many spectacular sights and beaches to discover throughout the archipelago.
