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'). 

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 dock master 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 neighboring commercial dock at Public. Fuel bunkering by truck to yachts in the port can be arranged (see ‘Fuel Bunkering’ section for more details). 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. 

Fuel Bunkering

There is a fuelling station at the commercial Port of Public with a draft of 2.5 meters. The Port office (Le Capitainerie) can also arrange bunkering by truck to the berths on the main dock, up to a maximum of seven cubic meters. 

The fuel dock is open: Monday to Friday 0800 – 1400 / Saturdays and Sundays from 0730 – 1100hrs.

All fuelling enquires to be directed through the Port de Gustavia Office.
