Managing the docks where our charter and privately managed boats live during the winter season means that we very often have a few extra spaces available and open for boats just passing through Soper’s Hole, a.k.a. transient boats.
Soper’s Hole is a transient boater’s paradise: not only is there easy access to fuel (diesel and gas) and water, but Customs and Immigration are located just across the harbor, there is a medium-sized supermarket on site perfect for a quick mid-trip re-provisioning and there is even a laundromat.
Has your chef threatened to quit? Check out D’Best Cup for amazing, diner-style breakfast and their large specialty coffee menu; Pusser’s for a pub-fare lunch and their world-famous Painkillers; L’Amore for an afternoon snack of gelato; Fish N’ Lime for incredible fresh fish specials; and, Scaramouche for an Aperol spritz while you lounge in their bar area, or partake in an exquisite three-course Italian feast in their fine dining restaurant upstairs.
Is your crew growing restless aboard? In addition to the many eating and drinking options, you can browse the apparel collections at Arawak, Latitude 18, Pussers and the other smaller shops dotted around, or go see Island Surf & Sail to grab a stand up paddle board or kayak to enjoy for the afternoon, or for the remainder of your trip.
To streamline the booking process for our transient clients, this season we have partnered with Dockwa, an online slip booking site featuring marinas throughout the US and the Caribbean. You can effortlessly search their website or app (available for both iPhone and Google Play) to confirm whether there is a marina available where you plan to go next, and once you set up your account with your boat’s details you can easily make dockage requests with just the click of a button. It’s fantastically simple!
