Deep water port is often a good place to go if its not rolling up, which it usually is not. Just anchor in shallow where the rustbucket fish boat won't go.

Dieppe Bay - I've never anchored there despite living here. But its where the cattlemarans (our party tourist cats) hide out during hurricanes. Look at it on Google Earth and you will see why.... Its also the location of the first St Kitts and one of the first Caribbean European settlements because its well protected....

Re: Nevis and St. Kitts

A bit confused about the procedures in St Kitt and Nevis.

I cleared in the customs and provided a cruising plan including Ballast bay, Bugs hole, Tamarind Bay(Nevis), Charlestown(Nevis). As noonsite and doyle cruising guide noted.

I was only given an small crafts declaration form with the next port as Charlestown. And adviced by the custom officials to get a boat clearance from the port authorities 24 hours prior to leaving to Nevis. So at least custom didn't give any paper labeled cruising permit.

Haven't done the immigration part yet as obted to wait till morning and do it by the cruiseship dock rather than going in to the airport.

Re: Nevis and St. Kitts

jenne:
I would have to pull my file but I do not remember any take away "paperwork" (permit like BVI when chartering)
We cleared into Charlestown Nevis & it was a little crazy due to an angry local comm'l captain & the expected reaction from the officials plus there were a couple of cruisers trying to also get cleared in/out.
Customs did most of the work on the Computer - I mentioned I would be traveling to St. Kitts - they said fine - and reminded we had to clear out there to get zarpe for next island. So it was more like "cruising permission" with dates provided & reminders ./rules spoken. There might have been a couple more EC for the "cruising" label vs one port.

I can check the file if You like.

Re: Nevis and St. Kitts

When you go back to get "clearance" to go to Nevis they will give you a stamp. That's your permit to go to Nevis. Its a stupid hassle they do here in SKN....

I live here in St Kitts, if you need anything feel free to ping me or find me at my store which is about 500 feet from the Marina.

Re: Nevis and St. Kitts

We hid from high winds and swell for a few days in Port Zante marina - Not a garden spot but has good security, excellent access to downtown and was surprisingly cheap. Absolutely no swell ever gets in there but not a great place to vacation - the vibe is a bit industrial.
