Heaving Down Rock Marina (Walkin Marina)

Aerial of Heaving Down Rock Marina.

Located on the eastern coast of Providenciales, Heaving Down Rock Marina, (also known as Walkin Marina) functions as a departing port for small passenger ferries, and as a home for both tour boats and private vessels.

The North Caicos and South Caicos Passenger Ferry

The two passenger ferry services, Caribbean Cruisin' and MV My Girl, leave from the general vicinity. These ferries are commonly used when taking a day trip from Providenciales.

Caribbean Cruisin’ operates inside the marina, with an established office and waiting area.

MV My Girl simply docks outside the marina, basically at the 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.

Parking Fees

There is now a parking (and entrance fee) for customers of the ferry, local businesses, and the marina. 'Standard Parking' is parking in a dirt field a short (1 minute walk) from the ferry port. 'Premium Parking' is generally on asphalt next to the pier itself.

There is no uniformed parking attendant at the complex and receipts are not issued. Upon entry, you will be approached by a person wearing street clothes (sometimes dressed in camouflage and a balaclava) asking for money (the parking fee).
