Portsmouth Association of Yacht Services and Security (P.A.Y.S.) would like to remind all yachts visiting Dominica to moor or anchor in the North end of Prince Rupert Bay (between Blue Bay Restaurant and Purple Turtle) where security patrols are conducted nightly. Although we recognize that some visitors prefer the seclusion of the south end, current economic conditions does not permit our group to patrol the whole bay and although Dominica is one of the safest countries in the Caribbean, we can not assure your safety in this area.
Portsmouth Association of Yacht Security (P.A.Y.S.) is a registered non-profit association, established in 2007 and includes 17 members from the yacht tourism sector in Portsmouth including tour guides, yacht service companies, restaurants and dive centres in the community. Funding for the night security is provided by:
- Membership Fees
- Fees from Yacht Moorings in Prince Rupert Bay.
- Fund Raising Beach BBQ’s and other fun activities
All services are provided by members on a voluntary basis to ensure all proceeds are dedicated to ensuring your security and to help further develop the yachting sector in Dominica.
Please help support our Program by Using PAYS members for your yacht services when coming to Dominica and joining in our fun events.
