You can call on VHF Channel 16 (or after hours on telephone numbers 885 3031 or 997 2558) and dock staff will meet you and guide you to your mooring.
If you are arriving in the wee hours, just pick up any of the ORANGE mooring buoys.
All of the moorings have 3 meters of 19mm studded ship’s chain to prevent the line from chafing on the bottom. These moorings are inspected twice annually.
Facts & Figures
There are 22 Helix Moorings.
Services & Facilities
The marina will arrange for relevant clearing officials to visit your vessel, and also bring them over – a service that is completely free so long as you are going to stay on one of the Waitui moorings.
They offer free watering, free dinghy dock usage, rubbish and garbage disposal, and free use of main dock for fueling or watering (up to six hours).
A very handy service also provided here, is the use of a chest freezer during the day in which to store your provisions. This will save you many trips back and forth to your yacht from the town each time you realize your arms are full!
There is a great laundry service at the front of the building that offers a hot water wash and ironing services.
The Waitui Club offers a full range of wines, beer, cocktails and soft drinks are available in a relaxed environment where you can socialize with other yachties and locals.
The Vale ni Kana (‘House of Food’) restaurant serves big, big plates for low, low prices.
A butcher is located within the Beachcomber Shipping Office, and provides the finest quality frozen beef, as well as sausages, and other ‘exotic’ meat, such as turkeys, on special order. You can order large quantities at a time.
Taxi’s swarm the town and flagging one down from outside either marina, or anywhere in the town is easy.
The main bus station in the town centre sees buses leaving regularly for places as far afield as Labasa, Nabouwalu, and even (inclusive of a ferry ride of course) over to Taveuni.
