Located on eastern coast of Providenciales, Heaving Down Rock Marina, (also known as Walkin Marina) functions a departing port for
small passenger ferries, and as a home for both
tour boats and private vessels.
Caribbean Cruisin’ operates inside the marina, with an established office and waiting area.
MV My Girl simply docks outside the marina, basically at the unpaved turn-around where
Leeward Highway concludes at the ocean.
Luggage and Cargo for the Ferry
It’s possible to unload a vehicle quite close to where the ferries depart, and doing so is advisable when traveling with large amounts of luggage. There is ramped access to the boats.
There is no charge for parking either inside or outside the marina. Please consider your chosen parking spot, especially in the turnaround outside the marina, as cargo barges do occasionally dock in the area.
Heaving Down Rock Marina is found near the eastern conclusion of
Leeward Highway. Simply drive east on the highway and you’ll eventually arrive at the site. It’s about three miles (4.8 km) from the Seven Stars Roundabout near
Grace Bay (where Leeward Highway constricts from a four lane dual carriageway to a two lane road).
If in the
Leeward residential region of Providenciales, simply take a left out of the southern entrance gates. The marina is a short .4 mile (.6 km) drive away.
When you’re close to the marina, on your right you’ll pass the former
Caicos Conch Farm location and directly before the entrance of the marina, the rusted remains of a white M35 "Deuce and a Half" former military cargo truck.
