August 15 - there is one working mooring in Sprat Bay, two more have no mooring rope. Good news is the fee dropped from $65 to $40 per night, and you get all resort access. Slips are also cut from $165 to $80. Electric still $70/night for 1 phase. The resort is reconstructing the marina, so these rates will be in effect until October 31, 2014.

Use moorings in Sprat Bay at your OWN RISK. Needing a easy mooring to return to the Moorings the following morning I picked one up in Sprat Bay in early June 2014. Non existent harbor master had to walk into lobby of hotel dirty and wet and they tried to charge $85 finally charged $45. In the middle of the night the mooring drug until we hit bottom with keel. (Moorings 4600) Had to move open dockage in the dark. Security looked out of his building and provided no help or inquiry. Left early in morning and could not document or complain. I assumed it was minor issue. Moorings investigated and found keel damage. Response from Peter Island has been ZERO. Pathetic customer service. They just want the 3 million dollar yacht traffic so all other boaters beware!!

That has always been the story at Peter. They don't want us there. Period.

We went there once - never to return.

Same deal at the Caneel Bay Resort on St. John.

They go out of their way to make sure you know that yachties are not welcome there.

I gotta say, we've docked in Sprat Bay about 5 times, and have always felt welcome. Yes the slip fee is outrageous ($125 for a 40 foot mono). But we've used the beach and beach chairs, eaten at both restaurants, sat at the bar, shopped in the store, walked all over the property, and been offered a ride when a staffer passed us in a golf cart.

We have enjoyed the facilities on an anchor in Deadman's. If you do not have A?C Sprat can be oppressive.
