Turks and Caicos technical stop

Hi fellows, can someone point me the right marina in TC for a one night stop, just to rest, water and fuel please?
I have seen many recommendations but I bed it to be quick and hassle free. Quickest and easiest Immigration on and out. We are taking a boat from BVI to Florida's east coast.
We have to be quick to use the weather window, so no sightseeing.
PS we are aware of the time of year and so on.
Thanks!

We stopped at South Side Marina on Providenciales this past New Years, and found it quite accommodating - fuel and water available, friendly staff, reasonable dockage. Not handy to provisioning, but the staff might shuttle you to a supermarket. We draw 1.7m / 5.5', would be tricky to enter if we were deeper.

Re: Turks and Caicos technical stop

In 2019 Immigration etc came to the marina. We waited til the next day for them to arrive. Easy once the folks got there.
I draw 6' even and had to wait for a high-high tide, Lucky for me it was the next morning at 0700. Stayed stuck in the channel overnight feet from the entrance to the marina bay.
At the time the North Shore area marina was silted in the the one farther East is way out of the way.
Bob and South Side great place!!

Re: Turks and Caicos technical stop

At the end of 2022 going into 2023, immigration and customs would come to the marina (the office called them) fairly quickly (maybe an hour or so). The fees are less if you are only in T&C for a week, otherwise you need to pay for a cruising permit. If you are leaving the next day they would no doubt clear you n and out at the same time.

Your draft is slightly less than ours, and we got in there OK -- even though on the cart it didn't look do-able. Just call when you arrive and they'll talk you in, and take it slow.
Bob sold the place to another marina operator, but he was still hanging around when we were there; nice guy (and a terror on his Bocce Ball court next to the restaurant/bar).

Just to let anyone know, at this Tina they have Immigration at the marina. Customs was called and to less than 30 min to rrive. The cost was 60 in + 60 out for customs and 15 in and 15 out for Immigration.
