    Leaving Green Turtle Cay sometime next month on way to Barbados. Anyone been into or out of Blue Haven in T&C recently? Is the entrance shoaling bad? 6' Draft. Thanks

    We were there not long ago and had no problem with a 6'6" draft. The shoaling is northwest of their location. We approached from the south. The shoaling is shown as 150 yds west of G7. Now can't guarantee the marker is there. This shoaling is in play for you if you take the shortest and most direct route in. The transient dock can handle much more draft than 6'.

    As a safety measure, you might call the marina as you get close to confirm your dockage but also to verify any entry issues with them.

    Great thanks that's the area I was concerned about. Doing some route planning and others noted shoaling in this area just didn't have any info on it. Planning on a mid day arrival for maximum visibility of water. We normally stop at Turtle Cove so not familiar with Blue Haven. Is there much current in the marina?

    The marina will probably pilot you in. We didn't experience much current.
