We know what it is like to make a land fall in a new harbor. If a yacht is entering the United States in Portland, Maine, Customs will come to our docks for the formalities. Once you have tied up we offer two nights free dockage or mooring. We are 726 Miles from Bermuda via the Great South Channel. 330 Miles from Halifax.

If you are sailing a foreign vessel headed to Maine during the annual migration North from the Caribbean and need crew visas, contact Phin Sprague at PYS. He can make an appointment at the US Consulate in Bermuda for Visa interviews. The Crew members needing visas must be on board when the vessel enters Bermuda. Out of district visas (visas for those who are not local residents ) are not normally issued in Bermuda. This exception for sailors is an appreciated accommodation for the benefit of vessels headed to New England via Bermuda.
