Cat Cay Yacht Club is an official Port of Entry for the Bahamas. The Customs/Immigration Offices are open between 0900 and 1700 hours daily.

The Bahamian Boarding Fee is $150.00 for vessels under 35 feet and $300.00 for vessels 35 feet and over. This Boarding Fee includes an Arrival Tax for three people, a Fishing Permit, and a Cruising Permit, and Customs and Immigration charges. An additional $20.00 Arrival Tax is due for each additional person, after the first three persons, six years and older on board.

Only the Master of the vessel is allowed to present these documents to the Customs/Immigration Officer. Everyone else must remain on board until Customs has cleared the vessel after which your crew and guests are invited to disembark. The Bahamian courtesy flag should now replace your yellow quarantine flag.

Again many thanks for visiting Cat Cay, have a wonderful stay.
