Description

All visiting vessels should seek advice from the Harbourmaster on a safe anchorage position (GPS: Lat 37
03.10S/Long 12 18.60W or Lat 37 03.04S/Long 12 17.85W) in the open anchorage below the Settlement (max depth 100m ? 50m due to shelving bottom).

No visas are required. All visitors must hold a valid passport and obtain permission to land by having a landing stamp inserted in their passport. (Landing stamps may also be issued to passengers and crew not intending to go ashore, but who wish their travel document to be endorsed as a souvenir of the visit).

Tristan Radio acts as a coastal radio station and port control. Visiting vessels should establish contact prior to arrival & during their stay, and advise ETD/proposed destination before departure.
Operating channels: Channel 14, 16 and 78. HFSSB 4000 / 4149 / 6230 / 8294mhz
