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.
