Marinas & Moorings

The Gaviota Varadero Marina is a recently built modern marina facility, which sets it apart from the other Cuban Marinas – it has now matured as a functional option for yachts operating or staying on the north coast. The marina offers visiting yachts and superyachts modern dockside services and facilities, with 1,200 wet slips  on the docks. It is a large scale development project which includes the luxury all-inclusive Melia Marina Hotel (with preferential accommodation rates and ‘Day Passes’ for marina clientele and crew), a marina village and shopping mall with retail stores and amenities. 

The marina also offers dedicated superyacht docks with a controlling depth of 5 metres (alongside docking) and 6 metres controlling depths on the approaches (although the marina recommends 4 metres as a safe draft for all conditions and tidal states). Single phase 220V/50A and 110V/30A are available at the marina docks, along with a fuel dock (gas and diesel – 5 metre controlling draught), potable water, ship chandlery and a boatyard equipped with a 100-ton Travel Lift, a 3-ton crane and dry storage for up to 40 boats. The Travel Lift has 11.5 metres width in the haul-out bay. 

Customs and Immigration facilities are also located next to the Superyacht Docks along with restrooms and showers. A good supermarket (by Cuban standards) carrying internationally imported items is located at the marina village. Also available are car rental offices alongside a shopping mall, which comprises of a bowling alley and pool hall, a coffee shop, ice cream parlour, numerous clothing retail stores, a diving shop and a variety of signature restaurants and bars. 

There is a heliport onsite – an International airport at Varadero – and a great variety of shore-side and underwater attractions throughout the popular nearby Varadero town and beach resort destination. These include a great golf course (see ‘Sports & Fitness’ section), a diving centre and game fishing charters. 

The Marina is a strategic staging post, being very close to the Florida coastline, and is approx. 65 miles east of Havana. With accessible day cruising available at nearby Cayo Blanco, this adds another option to the program for guests with north coast Cuba itineraries.
