Harbor or harbour fees

Re: Harbor or harbour fees

Your question is rather broad and so is the answer. It depends on the harbor and the marina. Check with the harbor master in whatever port you enter as to the procedure or with the specific marina.

Hi Jim
i¨m aware it was very broad but i did not know how to put is more specific and it was based on the concept you spend money there and just reloading your boat for a few hours but thanks for the input .

Re: Harbor or harbour fees

If you have some destinations in mind and let us know, someone will probably have first hand experience and can post the details. Otherwise, take a look at the "Countries" section of Noonsite.com.

I can say that generally, if you step ashore (on on a dock), the vast majority of countries will require you to clear in and out, and pay whatever entrance and exit fees that they levy, even if it's just for fuel.

Re: Harbor or harbour fees

Some places Yes and some places No. There really isn't any answer. Some places you pay to tie your dinghy up, others you don't. Is there a specific area you are want info on?

You question as stated previously depends on the Marina.

For instance there are very few marinas that have a supermarket. Most cruisers have to walk, drive or hire a taxi to get to markets for provisioning. I guess the analogy would be... Would you let a car park in your driveway so the owner can walk down the street to go shopping?

I have never seen a marina charge for stopping at a fuel dock for fuel. Some marinas do charge for sewer pump outs, but for the most part sewer pump outs are free.

I guess the answer is if the marina has stores or other facilities they want to have the boaters use, then they would most likely provide dockage. If they don't or don't want sail in traffic they will probably charge you or say go somewhere else.
