Compass Cay Marina is an anchorage in Central Exumas.

Central Exumas is a charter location in The Exumas, a yacht charter area in the Bahamas.

The anchorages on Central Exumas:

Compass Cay Marina

Compass Cay Marina is the chief anchorage of Compass Cay and has a total of 14 slips (quays). These can accommodate vessels of various sizes, ranging up to 150 LOA and 8-foot draft. It’s a well-maintained anchorage with pilot services, an active dock with a bistro, and an agency that organizes swims with baby sharks.

Compass Cay Marina can get crowded during peak season but it’s the safest place to anchor at and spend quality time. However, the coolest activity worth doing here is swimming with the nurse sharks that come to sleep near the dock. These sharks swim onto the dock and you may have to move past them to reach other spots on the dock. You may also indulge in underwater swimming, snorkeling, and exploration of caves near the marina. Fishing and heavy water sports are prohibited.

Please note that the entire dock goes underwater at high tide. You will also find bonefish along with the tamed sharks.

The marina is owned by Tucker Rolle and sits on a naturally protected harbor of the Exumas.

Mooring at Compass Cay Marina

You can park anywhere on the 14 quays, of which there are 4 moorings with power stations. VHF ch. 16 is earmarked for assistance in and around the bank. The anchorage can accommodate boats of sizes up to 180 feet.

There’s a separate parking fee at the marina that can be paid on arrival. For more assistance, you can contact Tucker at 242-422-7300 or [email protected].

Provisioning and Services

Power stations, moorings, and the restaurant are all crowded in a single place and are close to the slips. You can anchor anywhere near the dock and enter (with an entry fee of $10) to request any service. However, don’t expect cranes or any other boat-assistance services such as fuel stations. You will find hamburgers and hot dogs at the restaurant, and is generally well-stocked.

There’s a small store on the dock that will provide RO water, ice, laundry, and essential supplies. On the dock, you will also find food items, a book swap system, and storm protection. There are also electricity points that provide different voltages.

If you are looking for accommodation, check out the newly opened Crescent Beach House that is ideal for honeymooners. For more details about the facilities, check out its official website.
