Vuda Point Marina has officially been gazetted as an Approved Boarding Station from today, Tuesday September 3rd, 2013.
In response to feedback from visiting yachtsmen and women, the owners of Vuda Marina and government officials have been working tirelessly over the past months to make your entrance to Fiji even easier!
Certain to please all arriving and departing international yachts, this change creates a significant improvement to the arrival experience for those wanting to clear in, or out from the Western side of Fiji. Previously, yachts had to clear at the industrial Lautoka Wharf; anchoring in muddy waters, surrounded by large, commercial container ships, which was generally viewed as a less than ideal introduction to our otherwise beautiful shores.
From now on, arriving yachts can conveniently clear into Fiji’s waters using the floating dock at Vuda Marina where government officials will be waiting to greet you and proceed with formalities.
Captain and crew may then come ashore and start enjoying everything Fiji has to offer and make use of the Marinas facilities, restaurant, café, bar, yacht chandlery, general store, ATM, laundry and fuel station.
With easy access from the Marina to both Lautoka city and Nadi town, exploring and re-provisioning is simple.
Vuda Marina Boarding Station Operating Hours are:
Monday 0900hr – 1200hr
Tuesday to Thursday 1000hr – 1200hr
Friday 1000hr – 1500hr
As always, wherever you decide to enter into Fiji, the Master of the vessel must first complete the new C2C form and email or fax it at least 48 hours prior to arrival to the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) at [email protected] or (+679) 338 2011 respectively.
To make use of the facilities at Vuda Marina, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team via email [email protected] or fax (+679) 666 8215.
