Description

The principal town of the Abacos, Marsh Harbour is many things to many cruisers. Numerous marine services and a central location make Marsh Harbour an ideal cruising destination for a short-term stay or as a long-term base. All manner of marine services can be found in town. Hardware stores, groceries, pharmacies, banks, and bakeries are all close to the water, but just far enough away to require a taxi if you’re going to do any heavy provisioning. Although there is a customs office at the government dock in Marsh Harbour, most cruisers opt to clear in at the marinas - Port of Entry.

Navigation

From the north, the indistinctive entrance to Marsh Harbour can be difficult to spot. Lights on Outer Point and Inner Point are unreliable. Steer a course for Outer Point, which should be given a wide berth of at least 200 yards.Leave Inner Point about 50 yards to port. Favor the northern side of the entrance to keep clear of the large shoal extending from Big Cay. The channel here has a controlling depth of 2.1 m. Once inside, two channels direct traffic in the harbor. One runs east from the entrance to the Conch Inn & Marina and the other marks the path southeast to the customs dock, frequented by mail boats and small freighters. Do not confuse these channels, as crossing between them may result in a grounding. Markers for these channels are often missing. Once inside Inner Point, turn immediately to port and follow an easterly course toward the marinas. Berthing: In Marsh Harbour, The Port of Call, Harbour View, Conch Inn, and Marsh Harbour marinas offer berths and gas and diesel to the cruising boater. Long’s Landing and Mangoes Marina also have transient slips.
