About


Introduction:

The town of Dewey (named after the famous Admiral) is located on the Island of Culebra, which is an independent municipality of Puerto Rico. Dewey is the capital of Culebra, and as such, you will find a wide variety of excellent services here, both ashore and shoreside.

The island of Culebra is located 23 miles west of Saint Thomas, 18 miles northeast of the island of Ceiba, and 50 miles east of San Juan. The canal pictured above is the center of activity for the boating community and is where a majority of the marine services are located.

Navigating the Water:

Dewey is easily approached from the southwest from a passage south of Cayo de Luis Pena (Luid Pena Key). You will first set a course for Sardinas Bay, which lies between Melones and Maguey points, on the northwest and southeast corners of the bay, respectively.

As shown in the image above, a small canal runs through Dewey and connects Sardinas Bay with Ensenada Honda on the other side of town, but shallow depths (4 feet), low power cables (15 feet), and an inoperable lift bridge block the passage for all but the smallest power boats. You can dinghy in here and access many of the facilities of Dewey (shops, Internet Cafe, fuel dock, small marina, markets).
