Errol Flynn Marina (8 a.m.5 p.m daily) has slips for 32 boats. Vessels under 50 feet are charged US$0.75 per foot per day, over 50 feet US$1.25 per foot per day; electricity and water are also available at metered rates (US$0.24/kWhr for electricity and US$0.09/gallon of water). A well-laid-out and planted promenade along the waterfront has benches. Wireless Internet is included for marina guests, and there is an Internet cafè open to nonguests (US$4/hour). Devon House I Scream and Norma’s at the Marina are both located within the gated complex, and the scenic waterfront makes a romantic spot to let evening drift into night. A private beach faces Navy Island just beyond Norma’s. The park along the waterfront is open to the public (7 a.m.11 p.m Mon.Fri., 7 a.m.midnight Sat. and Sun.), as is the beach, marina and restaurant; the docks and pool are reserved for marina guests. The beach is open to customers of Norma’s. The Errol Flynn Marina is owned by the Port Authority of Jamaica and managed by Westrec Marina. The marina opened in September 2002 and was renamed the Errol Flynn Marina in 2006.
Port Antonio Marina, also under the control of the Port Authority of Jamaica, also offers docking ($0.35/foot) with water, electricity, and showers, but no security after 4 p.m By car, access the Port Antonio Marina down the road next to the old train station across from CC Bakery. The difference between them comes down to security, proximity to the bar and restaurant, and complimentary wireless Internet.
