BoatyBall Reference Guide

What is BoatyBall? Simply put, BoatyBall is an App that allows you to reserve and pay for mooring balls throughout the BVI’s. To use the App, look for mooring balls that have the BoatyBall Logo on them.

Reservations Only Moorings

These mooring balls are bright orange, a different shape, have numbers on them, and will have our logo clearly visible. Through the APP, you will be able to reserve any ball that is in the reservations only program.

Tips & Precautions: First and foremost, DO NOT TIE up to a reservations only mooring ball unless you have reserved it. DO NOT BE THAT CAPTAIN that ties up to a mooring ball reserved by someone else. Captains that violate this policy will have their accounts and boats suspended permanently. Make sure your mooring ball number you tie up to matches the ball number you reserved.

Tip & Precautions: Not all mooring balls in the BVI’s are in the BoatyBall program. The ones that are in the program are properly maintained by Moore Seacure. In most locations, there are several different owners to the balls located in the mooring field. Not all moorings are on maintenance contracts. So, if you are going to use the APP to pay for a BoatyBall mooring, please ensure that you are tied up to one, you have the right bay selected in the App (easy to do with the locate me button) and it is a BoatyBall mooring BEFORE you pay for it. Failure to do so can result in the loss of your payment.

Get Started

To get started using the App:

  1. Create an account & look for the confirmation email.
  2. Enter boat info and payment method(s)
  3. Go to the map and explore. Dive sites, resturants, and other fun places. New moorings and attractions are being added daily.
  4. The orange icons are the Reservation Only mooring balls.
  5. Reservations only moorings have a check in and out time. As a boater, you can reserve a mooring for that day from 7:00 am until 12:00 am (midnight). Check in and check out times for a reservable ball are 12:00 pm (noon). Simply navigate to your destination in the App, and select an available RESERVATIONS ONLY mooring ball. These balls are ORANGE in the App when available, GRAY with a boat icon when booked by a different boat, and RED with a flag icon when booked by you. You can also locate your past and future moorings via the reservations menu.

Update: please note that the time you can start to reserve the balls, check in and checkout times have changed as of Jan 18, 2019.
