There are three major marinas on Virgin Gorda. Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour (The Valley, 284/495-5500, www.vgmarina.biz) is a 111-slip, full-service marina and boatyard just south of St. Thomas Bay, the ferry terminal in the Valley. Overnight rates vary, $1–2.50 per foot, per day, and go down if you stay for a week, a month, or longer. If you’re in transit, you can dock here free for 30 minutes and at $10–15 for each hour after that depending on size. There are moorings outside the marina; pay for them at the Yacht Harbour.
At North Sound, Leverick Bay Resort (284/495-7421, www.leverickbay.com) has 25 slips with a controlling draft of 22 feet.
