Jamaica Car Rental and the Montego Bay Yacht Club

The Montego Bay Yacht Club is the main sailing club in the area, if you are looking for somewhere to dock your boat while you explore the island with your Jamaica car rental. It can be found in the Montego Freeport.

What you can expect

The berthing facilities here consist of a finger pier with a T-head. The water depth varies from 6 to 20 feet, with special dock rates depending on what amenities you require. Charges are per foot.

When you arrive at the yacht club, call on VHF channel 16 to contact on arrival. Register at the office during normal office hours to be cleared through customs. You cannot leave your boat or the Montego Bay Yacht Club in your Montego Bay car rental until you have been cleared. You should check the requirements for entrance to Jamaica from your country origin before coming to make sure you have the proper documentation before arriving. You will save yourself a lot of time and trouble.

There is food, water, and diesel available at the club for a charge. The water from the tap is safe to drink, and the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day. If you need more than 2000 gallons of gas, please order ahead of time. The bar is open seven days a week as well, with a pool in the bar area. You can't have bear chests or wear only a bathing suit in the bar, but dress is casual.

When you plan on leaving, please give twenty four hours notice for clearance from customs and immigration. If you need to pick up groceries or liquor, take your Jamaica car rental to either Fairview or Westgate Shopping Centers. Pretty much anything you will need for your trip can be found here. There is also a large marketplace for fruits and vegetables in the heart of Montego Bay with your car rental.

Flying in

Montego Bay is normally serviced by Sangster International Airport, which is about thirty minutes to the yacht club with your Montego Bay car rental. During rush hour, it may take up to an hour to make this trip however, so plan your time for that.

Plan your adventure

Montego Bay has so much to offer you while you are here with your Jamaica car rental. Some of the places that are recommended to visit include the Rose Hall Great House, the Half Moon Golf Club, Doctor's Cave Beach, Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, and the Martha Brae River.

Montego Bay is a tourist attraction for both its activities both on and off the shore. Off shore there are some of the most spectacular sights you will come across in the crystal clear water. Visiting the island in your Montego Bay car rental after you leave the Yacht Club will make your trip to Jamaica even more special.
