Information for Vessels visiting Saba*
Whilst coming ashore we strongly advise that you enter the island of Saba only through Fort Bay Harbor as the other areas (Well's Bay, Ladder Bay and Cove Bay) can be treacherous in certain sea conditions that may be deceptive from aboard your vessel.
Arriving yachts are required to proceed to the Fort Bay Harbor as soon as possible, clear Customs and Immigration, then check in/out with the harbormaster to fulfill the required formalities. If Customs and Immigration are not available, proceed directly to the Harbor Office. The opening hours of the harbor office are from 6 AM to 6 PM. For your convenience and to speed up the procedures, the Customs and Immigration form can be downloaded in PDF format here.
