jumping countries

It's been awhile since crusing on a sailboat. If we were to go thru the Bahamas to say Puerto Rico and we needed gas. If we stop, lets say in
Great Inagua to get fuel and water, do we still have to pay customs the 300 dollars entry fee? Same with other countries, Is it that expsesive to cruise?

Chuck...once you stop in a country you must check in and pay entry fees. The Bahamas are THE MOST EXPENSIVE place to pull in since they raised the fee from 50 bucks to 300 to take advantage of us "tourists". Most other countries in the caribe are 50 bucks or less. See www.noonsite.com for country by country guidance.
