Many cruise ships dock in the Bridgetown deep water harbor, just expanded to accommodate even more vessels. The terminal is served by an army of taxis, as well as shuttle "buses" to/from downtown Bridgetown for BBD2 each way per person.

Private moorings are available around the island. Note that stiff penalties prohibit the dropping of anchors on coral reefs.
