Depends on your size. I spent six months a few years ago on a 77 footer and we stayed on the hook all the time in St George's and Hamilton. Both harbours are very safe with good holding. The few marinas are expensive and somewhat exclusive.

When we were in St George's, Bermuda in June there appeared to be only one very small, rather run-down marina at Somers Wharf. There is a marina at Hamilton, the capital, but I think that's for the Yacht Club. I think the only full service marina is at the Dockyard (+105 441 234 0300).

Noonsite has a bit of info that might help you Noonsite: Bermuda

On approaching Bermuda be sure to call in on VHF when you are within 30 miles to inform them of your impending arrival (their VHF transmitter at St George's has an incredible range). They get quite shirty if you don't. They will interrogate you and ask detailed questions about the safety gear you have on board. Better still, complete a pre-arrival questionnaire and send it to them by email. You have to clear in at St George's Harbour before going elsewhere.

We found the officials incredibly helpful and efficient. They are really geared up to visiting yachts. We really enjoyed our short stay there and would have loved to stay longer.

There's the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club or the Royal Hamilton Dinghy Club further in Hamilton harbor. If you belong to a YC with reciprocal privileges contact the Club Secretary to see if they have guest facilities and for how long.

St. George dinghy club is nice a bit of a walk to town though. The past three years have been tying up in town at the bulkheads fronting the harbor, penno's wharf, across from customs, by the gas station and restaurants. Just pay attention to weather certain directions can cause quite a fetch across the harbor. I think it was .50 a foot payable in building behind customs. The harbormaster should greet you when you get in and suggest spots. The people are very nice and extremely helpful.We spend a few weeks there every nov. and april. Also talk to doyle sails in town he may have some moorings.

There are a few mooring in St George's Harbor that you can rent on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Only a short ride into town by dinghy. We stayed one one owned by the ex-mayor last spring for three weeks during a number of strong fronts that kept coming off the East Coast. We did much better than the boats at the Dinghy Club and the dock . They got pretty beat up. The mayor has two moorings, the Doyle sail loft has a few and the boat yard close to the sunken boat has a larger number. Yacht clubs are very expensive. I don't how much it costs at the Navy Yard Marina but they just put in some new slips. Its a ferry ride to Hamilton from there.
