Port de Gustavia

The Port of Gustavia in St. Barth’s continues to come rated as being one of the most popular and beautiful natural harbours in the world.

Berthing in Gustavia, requires dropping an anchor and going stern-to the quay wall.

Before entering or manoeuvering within the port, all yachts must obtain specific authorization from the Port Captain's office (call VHF Ch. 12 'Port de Gustavia'). See forms on link below. 

Pre-clearance online 24 hours before arrival. 

Whilst they don't officially take reservations, yachts are well advised to fax / email them in advance of the dates they are planning to come, with the yacht’s dimensions. This will enable the Harbour Master – Ernest Brin, assisted by dockmaster Jacques – to plan their berthing accordingly, bringing a far greater chance of having one's own berth available upon the day of arrival. 

Port Office opening hours are 0700-1800hrs, 7 days a week, all year round (Public Holidays included) and clearance can be carried out online, a maximum of 24 hours before checking in at the port office (see ‘Customs / Immigration’ section). 

There is a fuel facility for smaller yachts and tenders at the neighbouring commercial dock at Public, with a draft of 2.5m. The fuel dock is open: Monday to Friday 0800 – 1400 / Saturdays and Sundays from 0730 – 1100hrs.
Fuel bunkering by truck to yachts in the port can also be arranged by the Port Office. 

The Port also helpfully offers guidance on rubbish to help preserve their island - only two colour bags are allowed: 
* Black for household rubbish, plastic bottles, paper and cardboard 
* Transparent for glass bottles and metals. 

Due to the optical cable running under the water from Shell beach, there is a ‘no anchoring’ channel off the beach, marked by yellow buoys topped with St. Andrew’s crosses. 

St. Barth's is well known for hosting world renown regattas throughout the year...
