The harbour is very protected with no swell

The Jolly Harbour Marina & Boatyard entrance outer marker is located at 17Deg 04’.5N 61deg 54’.3W. This is a safe water mark. Boats of up to 13 feet draft can enter Jolly Harbour.

There are red and green channel markers on the approach to the Marina. These are numbered from 1 to 15. Here in Antigua & Barbuda, we operate the IALA B System. (Red Right Returning). Port lateral marks and lights are green. Starboard lateral marks are red.

Please note that there is a “no wake” zone from the entrance. The speed limit is 5 knots so please be mindful of this as you enter.

We do not recommend approaching the Marina after dark. Plan to arrive before sunset e.g. before 6pm.
