Three separate mooring fields adjacent to Warderick Wells provide plenty of safe moorage for visiting yachts. Approaching from the north, the beautiful natural J shaped harbor is the main mooring field at Warderick Wells. Twenty two mooring balls in this location accommodate yachts of various sizes, including one mooring that is suitable for yachts up to 180′. Just south of the Park Visitor Center is the Emerald Rock Mooring Field. Twenty six moorings there can accommodate a large variety of visiting yachts. With less current and excellent protection from east and northeast winds, this mooring field has become very popular especially with visitors with young children on board. The southwest end of the island is the pirates hangout. Six moorings have been set in the small harbor between the southwest end of Warderick Wells and Hog Cay to the east. For a mooring at one of these locations, contact the Exuma Park Office on VHF 9 during park office hours (9:00 AM – Noon and 1:00 PMù4:00 PM Monday thru Saturday, Sunday 9:00 AM till noon).
