Turtle Grass Marina is a new-ish facility, located in the heart of Calabash Bight on the South East end of Roatan Island. A secluded spot with 15 slips for all vessels to 50 '. Depth at the dock is 8' and we also have power and water. Rain water, well water and Reverse Osmosis water (10 cents/Gallon) available.

Come and spend some time with us.. a day, week, seasonal or permanent. With flight from the US landing on the the island daily, you could leave Miami at 10 am, be on your boat and sailing some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the Western Caribbean by 3 the same afternoon. We also approve of live aboard owners.

The property has about 1/2 mile of walking trails, gorgeous views and a nice breeze to help keep you cool, most of the time. This means sailing in the channel is amazing. Deep blue experience with trades blowing 12 - 15 knots most of the time. This is a boaters paradise, sail or power.

Calabash Bight is also the safest hurricane hole there is on Roatan. Roatan is not immune to Hurricanes. The north basin of Calabash bight is where all the large boats on the island make their way to, when there is impending danger of one approaching. You can be assured of your vessels' safety while staying over with us for a season or two. The mountains surrounding the bight ensures a safe and well protected harbour. The attention of Dock Hands looking after the rest.

If you are at all concerned about heading into the bay, please call us on Channel 68. we will come out and guide you in. Approach from the South East, following the shore line. You will see a Red Buoy at the entrance to the bight. Keep it tight to starboard. Another red buoy is directly in front of you about 1/4 mile into the bay. You can see the rock pile to Starboard. Keep that buoy tight to starboard as well. The channel is deep enough but only about 40 - 50 feet wide. Anchoring in the south basin after that is good from just inside the red buoy on the eastern half of the bight in 20 - 30'. Bottom is sand and mud. Excellent holding. The Marina is the Building with the solar panels on the west point about 1/2way up the bight. You can proceed to the north basin by keeping the east shore close. Pass the point more than half way across on the east side and there is lots of water. Just after the point is a smaller basin with 20 feet of water and similar bottom. Also more docks on the West shore.
