Advance reservations are strongly recommended at
The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and we cannot guarantee
available berthing for guests arriving without a confirmed
reservation. We also ask that you provide advance notice,
where feasible, of your approximate arrival time so that
we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any
inconvenience to you.
Upon arrival at the marina, you will be escorted to your slip
by an IGY tender and our dock attendants will guide you
in and assist you with docking. Once you are comfortably
settled into your slip, we ask that you visit our marina office
in order to check in. Our office staff will quickly register you
with the marina and answer any questions that you have.
Check In/Out Times
Check-in time is at 5:30pm eastern, while check-out is at
• Early check-in/late check-out If your slip is available
before 5:30pm on the day of your arrival or after 11:00am
on the date of your departure, we will be happy to allow
you to use the slip in that instance at no extra cost.
Please request all early check-ins and late check-outs
directly with the marina office. We will do our absolute
best to accommodate your requests whenever possible.
• Temporary slips In the event that an early check-In and/
or late check-out is requested but not possible, the marina
staff will try to accommodate you by making another slip
available to you temporarily until such time that your slip is
available or you are ready to depart the marina.
• Procedure The captain or his/her assignee must check in
and check out at the marina office in each instance unless
otherwise arranged with the marina management.
• Additional charges If a slip is occupied after 4:30pm on
the day of your scheduled departure, an additional night’s
dockage will be charged to your account.
Bridge Inbound & Outbound
The Simpson Bay Bridge is the main access into and out of
Simpson Bay Lagoon from the Dutch side of the island. The
Bridge can accommodate vessels up to a maximum beam
of 55 feet and a maximum draft of 17 feet. When the bridge
is closed there is 8.6 feet clearance in the port channel and
8 feet clearance in the starboard channel – all clearance
varies on the tide.
The Simpson Bay Bridge will only remain up for a maximum of 15 minutes during each opening so it is imperative
that all vessels follow the direction of the dock master in
order to maximize the number of vessels that we can get
through the bridge at each opening.
The dock master will contact each vessel prior to bridge
openings in order to line up vessels in a specific order
based on the marina and slip the vessels are using; this
procedure is coordinated with the other marinas in the
lagoon. The captains’ cooperation is necessary and appreciated in order to get as many vessels through the bridge
as possible during the 15-minute opening period. During
times when there is only one bridge opening for both
in- and out-bound traffic, the out-bound traffic will precede
the inbound traffic in all instances unless specifically noted
otherwise by the bridge operator.

In the event that the bridge closes before you are able to
enter/exit the lagoon, IGY will work with the bridge operator
to reopen the bridge as soon as possible and we will
coordinate with you so that you and your crew are fully
aware of the situation.
Immigration & Customs
Although our dock masters will try to get all vessels in line
and through the bridge in an orderly fashion, we understand
that ultimately the captain is responsible for the safe
navigation and care of the vessel and will thus make the
final decision on how to proceed. In all cases, safety is our
primary concern.
Contact Bridge Operator on VHF Channel #12 for
permission to enter or leave Simpson Bay Lagoon.

Inbound traffic: 9:00am,11:00am, 4:30pm

Environmental Awareness
IGY and The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol are fully committed to preserving the beautiful environment which attracts
our guests to the Caribbean. We ask that you help us to
ensure that our land and waters remain clean and safe
– and we have adopted marina rules to properly regulate
activities that may cause pollution. We apologize for any
inconvenience that these rules may cause to you, but hope
that you will agree to help us preserve the environment for
future generations of boaters.
• We have preserved the mangroves that line our shore
as a barrier to erosion and as a key breeding ground for
fish. Please do not do anything that might damage these
important bushes. In particular, we ask that you not cut or
break the mangrove branches.
• We have garbage receptacles strategically located around
the marina property and the docks. Please use these
receptacles for your trash, and please do not dispose of
any (including food waste and other organic matter) into
the water.
• We ask that you not undertake any work in the marina,
which could cause the release of pollutants into the
environment. For this reason, sanding, painting and
similar activities should be done in a controlled area and
generally, should not be undertaken in the marina.
• Discharge of septic systems, fuel, toxic cleaning agents
and other pollutants into the water in the marina is a
violation of both our marina rules and St. Maarten law. It is
strictly prohibited.
• ALL used oil, black water, and grey water removal must
be done through the marina office in order to ensure safe
and environmentally friendly removal and disposal.
Please contact the marina office to schedule waste oil,
black or grey water removal, and for the most up-to-date
• Because the improper delivery of fuel, oil and lubricants
also can cause pollution, delivery of any of the above
products that have not been ordered through the marina
office will not be allowed on the property.
We would be most appreciative if you would immediately
contact the marina office if you see any violations of these
