Lots of tour boats at the grotto through out the day, makes it ez to find. Mooring balls are also available at SCYacht club. bring your underwater camera!!!
The Current rips through here! It's narrow, be prepared. But it's a shortcut!
We anchored here for 3 nights due to weather. ( Jan 2022) It's a small bay, room for about 12 boats, 6 each side of the entrance. Good holding, we had winds of 30 knots.
We dropped anchor near Frigate's Bar & Grill for 2 nights (Jan 2022) Good holding, well protected. Frigate's dinghy dock is usable but is in need of some repair. The town dock 1/2 mile south has been completely rebuilt. Groceries are available about 1/2 mile north from Frigate's. Frigate's has a full bar and restaurant outdoor or indoor seating. Nice beach with palm trees and great view of the sunset.
We stayed on Edwin's mooring ball for 4 nights (Jan 2022) waiting for our weather window to move south. It was $22 a night, cash only, no credit cards. Trash is by dinghy at the dump. Edwin's has a well stocked marine store. Man O War grocery on Queen's highway is a short walk. It has a nice selection & they take credit cards. We enjoyed the coffee shop across from the Grocery store. Great coffee, hospitality, breakfast and treats. Annie Albury is sewing canvas bags at her Sail Shop.
They are super nice on the phone, but this is a private marina. No transient dockage available.
Stayed two night on our Leopard 40 on the floating T dock. Dockmasters Mike and Saundra called to check on us to make sure we were arriving that evening. They came out and helped us tie up, showed us the laundry, Yacht Club, and Tiki bar. They also provided delightful conversation, invited us to make dinner reservations at the Yacht Club, and gave us tips for taking our dinghy thru the Lock. We had a great expericence here. Top notch!
