Sailing to St Helena

St Helena welcomes visiting yachts. There’s a growing interest in yachts seeking safe havens in new and unspoilt destinations. St Helena is conveniently positioned for passing sea traffic as it sits in the middle of West Africa and South America.  A warm welcome awaits the visiting sailor ashore in Jamestown, the island’s main settlement and only harbour.

St Helena has only one harbour called James Bay which now benefits from a new field of robust mooring buoys. The rest of the coast is towering rocky cliffs, backed by lush green slopes, climbing up to the highest spot on the island, Diana’s Peak, at 823 meters.  For more information on yacht moorings, please click HERE.

Yachts can be hoisted in an emergency and for small repairs, if spaces are available.  The current cost for hoisting and launching visiting yachts are £33.00.

On arrival immigration personnel will provide you with an information pack, however if you require further tourist information, please visit the Tourist Office which is located in Jamestown the Canister.
