It was a lovely mooring and we especially liked being to book with Dockwa well in advance, without the early morning competition the other mooring company requires!

Great experience using Dockwa to book a mooring at The Bight. We decided to stay an extra night which was super easy to do with just a message. Wish we knew about the app earlier - we didn’t realize other booking apps were out there other than Boatyball - you guys need to get the message out there more widely!
Marina Response:
Great and looking forward to having you again! We are working on getting the word circulated.

Our stay was great! We decided to stay an extra day due to bad weather. We were assigned a different mooring ball for the 2nd night, however the attendant who rode around checking mooring balls was kind enough to let us stay on our original ball and the people coming in were happy to take our ball. Restaurant was great and live music was great! Great experience for first-timers (except the actual hooking onto the mooring ball-epic fail! But, we eventually got it! Live and learn!
Marina Response:
Wonderful! We are very happy when you're happy :-)

Restaurant was great. People were great. But our mooring ball was double booked (as were others), and we had to hunt for another ball. Plus harbormaster wasn't around for another hour or so after arriving at 3pm.
Marina Response:
Hello, so sorry to hear you did not have a good experience booking online. From what you've described, it sounds like the boater that was on your buoy (#38) at the time of your arrival ignored the reservation tag and connected to it despite. A situation we're working on correcting and also we can not double book as once the buoy # is reserved, it is no longer available in the system for selection. We also implore you to use the contact information provided on for the Norman Island Moorings, or call the restaurant and they can get the moorings attendant out to assist promptly. Apologies again and had we received contact, it could've been rectified forthright.

We paid on line then got charged again once we were there. Tried to get our money back but the yacht club didn’t open til 11 am and we were on a schedule that would not allow us to wait.
Marina Response:
Hello Mr. Degrenier, we're very sorry to hear this and it seems like there was some miscommunication. We are investigating the situation, to confirm your boat name is Spotty Decisions and we see in the system that you were assigned to buoy #38.

Excellent stay, warm reception at the bar, kind staff and you even contacted me to refund a “double payment” for the mooring buoy. Great job all around! Best regards to all the staff
Marina Response:
Of-course! Hope to see you again soon :-)

Very easy to reserve and was so nice to have it days in advance, unlike Boatyballs 7am same day only reservations which fill too quickly
Marina Response:
Thanks very much for the feedback. This will help us to continue fine tuning the process to ensure your stay is as easy as 1-2-3.

It was wonderful. We had a mooring close to the Pirate's Bight, the beach and snorkeling kept everyone busy, we jumped off The Willy T and then had a fantastic dinner with views and music at The Pirate's Bight!
Marina Response:
We always aim to please :-) - be sure to come back soon!

Awesome Sauce!

cant fault the stay. i would say that norman island need to keep an eye on reserved moorings though. when we arrived, there was a vessel on our reserved mooring ( even though it had a reserved marker on it) and no one on board to ask to leave. we had to pick up alternate until that vessel left.
Marina Response:
Very sorry about that. We do try to monitor the moorings field and assist customers where needed. Hopefully as the understanding gets out that Dockwa is available for reservations and what that reserved tag means, we'll get more cooperation for reserving boaters. Thanks!

Amazing customer service as we had to take first mooring ball in the field at Norman due to engine problems. Thank you!!!

Thank you :-)

Easy to reserve. Very nice morning. I recommend providing a map of the buoy numbers and locations online. The ball took us a while to find
Marina Response:
Hello, there should be a map and number listings available when you first begin the registration process now. We're here to help if you still have trouble finding it.

Wonderful to have a mooring ball waiting on us when we decided to arrive. Thank you for the service. We loved Willie T's and the trail behind the Bight. We have fond memories from this mooring spot.
Marina Response:
Awesome! We look forward to having you back soon!

by Francesco R. - Verified user on Mar 14, 2022

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for the appreciation! Glad to hear Dockwa was easy to use as we continue to try to streamline our processes to make things easier for our customers. Looking forward to seeing you again soon too :-)!

About Norman Island Moorings

Home of Pirates Bight Bar, Restaurant, and Gift Shop, is perhaps most famous for being the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Treasure Island. However, Norman Island also has a rich documented history of acting as a hiding spot for Pirate booty. Documented history for the island dates back to the early 18th century when a Spanish galleon called Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe buried 55 chests of silver coins after the crew mutinied aboard the ship. Although most of the treasure has been discovered by Tortolian residents and later by Lieutenant-General of the Leeward Islands, Gilbert Fleming, more pirate treasure is rumored to exist today on Norman Island. Today, Norman Island offers one of the safest and most scenic harbors in the British Virgin Islands. The anchorage known as “The Bight” offers over 100 moorings available for guest use and is central to numerous world famous SCUBA dive and snorkel sites such as the Caves and the Indians. The 610-acre privately owned uninhabited island also boast numerous hiking trails and a breath taking white sand beach, which is the site of Pirates Bight Restaurant.
