I'm trying to figure out some of the COSTS involved with anchoring/docking your boat
somewhere. Can someone please share some insights on this?
In many destinations, will you have the option to:
A) Pay to dock
in a marina (FEE)
your boat outside the marina (FREE)
How many places, let's say around the Caribbean
, having these as accurate options? 80% of the time?
Do many places charge a fee just to anchor
? If so, about how many? (20% of islands in the Caribbean
Do most usually have the mooring
ball option? If so, what is the typical cost per night?
I have read a lot about "oh you can just anchor in most places for free and not have to spend money
at marinas" but I'm not so sure how accurate this is. Seems like many places charge outside of the marina too.
I don't supposed there's a PDF or a web page link on a site somewhere that has, for example, a list of all the popular Caribbean island destinations and anchorages
, and a breakdown of the fee options?
I'm just trying to wrap my head
around what the TRUE COST is for anchoring/docking your boat from place to place.
Thanks for any insights!
