Proceed past the starboard marker to 16.21.17/86.26.97 turn starboard to 16.231.16/86.26.79, paralleling the reef. This will keep you clear of the (sometimes) marked shoal to port.

Cost from French Harbor to Coxen Hole is L25 per person. You can pay more if you don't specify "collectivo" as an "express" will command L100-150 for the same ride and take the exact same time.

    FuelEdit

    Fuel DocksEdit

    'Fantasy Island Marina - 'The fuel dock at the Marina is capable of taking vessels up to 9' draft, is open on a scheduled basis, with opening times announced on the morning net, VHF #72 at 0900.


    Hybur Shipping -French Harbor -one bay west of French Harbor main anchorage) has a large hose and is open 5 days a week. Trouble here is the access is very problematic, based on large ships at dock. Fuel dock is first (southern-most) on the dock with a cyclone fence around it. Often time a ship will have a Spring Line directly across the access. (Also there is a wreck close as well). Best to dinghy over from anchorage and check out the situation before you bring your boat over. Hail a dock hand and they will find someone to pump the fuel. Pay in an office all the way up by the main road.

    Roy Mart -Oakridge- West side of main bay next to taxi stands and market (market is Saturday's only). Open 6 days. Finger pier and cement dock (sometimes blocked with offloading ships). 12 foot deep at both dock and pier. 12/07 new installation and hose to boat not installed but fueling done with clear 5 gallon water jugs. Diesel and gasoline available 1/09 Understand now have a 50 Gallon minimum.

    Fuel TruckEdit

    Ebanks Agency 504 9945-3811 Will deliver to any marina on Roatan.

    • 1/09 Parrot Tree (charges 20 cent tariff)
    • 3/08 delivery Brick Bay 100 gallons $3.25 Gallon

    Gas StationEdit

    The most common place cruisers fill up via Jerry Jugs. Sun Gas station walking distance (1/4 mile) from French Harbor Yacht Club and a L30-35 ($1.50) taxi ride back with full jugs. (Key to Yacht Club back gate can be had from Yacht Club office). Or park at the O2 (as in Oxygen - a hexagon waterfront) bar first thing in the inner French Harbor (same as Yacht Club) harbor. Walk out to the road and left to gas station. Same distance and price for taxi.

    French Harbor Yacht Club has recently started charging to park dingy so be advised.

    Vessels docked at Parrot Tree Plantation A dock can be supplied by Hybur's fuel trucks at the same price as the gas stations. Call Shawn at Hybur, 9948-1615 he can arrange for delivery at a bulk rate, no minimum requirement, try to bundle purchases with other vessels if possible( 3000 gln in truck)

    Brooksy Point Yacht Club does fuel runs twice a week for club members. Your Jerry Jugs are picked up and returned full to the dock.

    Haul OutEdit

    Three dry docks. Need more info. Randy on Svea knows most about these.

    GroceriesEdit

    SupermarketsEdit

    French Harbor -  Eldon's has long been known for the "best supermarket" between Panama City and Cancun. Walking distance from the dinghy dock at Roatan Yacht Club. Selection is excellent most goods come from Miami suppliers weekly. Closes on Sundays at noon. They have a bakery, deli and good selection of first-aid and health care supplies. 

    Also near French Harbour is the MegaPlaza containing a large local Honduran supermarket. Different products than Eldon's but difficult to compare prices because they add tax to certain items as a lump sum on the bottom of your bill.

    Coxen Hole - Warren's has been taken over by Eldon with an equally wonderful selection. Right down along the dock next to the Port Captain and Immigration next to the Parque.  There is a new Eldon's near Plaza Mar.

    Also in Coxen's Hole on the main highway (many blocks from downtown) is Plaza Mar supermarket. Equally good selection in larger square footage. They specialize in #10 can supplies for restaurants and do have a number of things which can't be found at Eldon's.

    Oakridge -  A couple of small supermarkets and many small shops. Miss Claire's has a decent selection of staples, and has the best Honduran ground beef frozen in 1 lb blocks, also frozen chicken. J&D's is a bit larger store and has a good selection of cleaning supplies, some basic fresh veggies and bread. Feb. 6/09 Yvonne of Usquaebach wrote: vegetable store in Barrio Lempira, up the road from BJ's Backyard about 1/4 mile. Lots of good reasonably priced veggies. You can walk it but suggest you cab it back if you've bought lots, cab is about $1.00 US. Further up the roat, at the intersection to Roatan's main road is a large fruit/veggie market - they resupply on Mondays by about 1PM.

    Meat & Fish MarketsEdit

    French Harbor has frozen shrimp, lobster and fish at Hybur's - on the main road. In the same area is Bulk Gourmet with a great selection of imported and specialty foods.  Bulk Gourmet has moved, it is now on the road to Coxen Hole on the left side of the road near the large white house.

    Shrimp packing plant across the street from Yacht Club sells 5# boxes on shrimp in all sizes.


    Oakridge - For those in the Oakridge area the Saturday morning market at the taxi and bus stop has Dave the butcher from Diamond Rock. He'll cut your beef or pork right there on the spot on his table in the shade of the building.

    Shrimp is also available at the Saturday market direct from the shrimpers. L50 a pound as of this writing.

    MiscellenousEdit

    Virtual Swap MeetEdit

    The web site Bay Islands Classified is set up to like a virtual online swap meet with many items including Boating equipment.

    ShippingEdit

    Hybur Shipping | website Ships from Miami weekly. Warehouse is in French Harbor for easiest cruiser access.


    DIP Shipping Company

    1335 NW 98th Court Unit 9 Miami FL 33172

    Maria Dip  mariad@dipshipping.com

    A good service and reasonable price for freight shipments. There is a minimum of $32, but if you have several shipments, ask Maria to consolidate for you and then you email her when to release the shipment, avoiding the minimum. Otherwise a flat rate of .84 per lb.

    Jan 2010 Just used DIP to have new computer and VHF shipped down from Miami. Deliverd to Fantasy Island was the min of 32 bucks. Now problems with customs...took about 13 days. Darnell is here on Roatan. Her phone is 540 9810 8009.. Very helpful.. I plan to use them again before we return to the Rio next summer. Great service at a great price and no customs problems. Paul Camp sv Lady H

    Mail and Package deliveryEdit

    Several choices but the fastest and easiest is to use Roatan Air Service at Jackson Plaza (about a mile west from French Harbor intersection - walking distance)

    This service is an extension of any Package carrier in states or Euorpe (ie FedEx, UPS, DHL) So anything that can be transported via those carriers can be transported via Roatan Air Services. Packages and mail under 5 lbs arrives quickly and with reasonable cost, but over 5 lbs becomes expensive. If you are not in a real hurry, use a freight carrier such as DIP shipping for over 5 lbs. Also cruisers should not worry about specifying "yacht in transit". RAS does charge customs duty based on the invoice the supplier provides - about 8%. Roatan Air can also send mail and packages to North America from Roatan.

    Roatan Air Services [| web site ]   Check their website for rates.

      • phone 504-455-7771
    • Coxen Hole business is just south of Paradise Computers
      • Name and phone unknown at this time

    VeterinaryEdit

    Dr Calderon comes to French Harbor area on Wednesdays from the main land and can be reached at 99952260. His professional clinic is 5 minute walk left on the main road from French Harbor to Coxen's hole. Just opposite the second (closed) gate of Hybur Shipping and next to the Arliegh Thompson Insurance Company.

    Vet Santiago TEL: 9909-0595 Located up the road towards Plaza Mar Mall. Keep going up the hill and its the first building on the right. Sign says Animal Kingdom Recommended by local in Coxen Hole area and Tempest.

    Egg FarmEdit

    Open every day except Saturday it's also across from Hybur Shipping up a dirt road about 150 paces. They supply all the eggs on the island, but are not refrigerated and perfect for storage on cruising boats. Not necessary to bring your own container but it might help getting them back to the boat.

    PropaneEdit

    Second in a row of services available opposite Hybur Shipping in French Harbor. (Egg farm first and Vet is just one driveway west). Will fill all bottles, yachties and aluminum bottles are very usual to them.

    Yes there is a sub-station outside downtown Coxen Hole on main road but that one is a definite taxi ride from everywhere.

    Also available in Jonesville BUT its more expensive - 100 limps more for a 20 pound bottle

    PharmaciesEdit

    French Harbor has one in the town (left at the yacht Club) about ten minutes walk. It's on the right after the roads curves around to the left. Next to the Gio's Restaurant. Also a doctor and dentist in same building.

    Battery SourcesEdit

    Hybur Shipping in French Harbor has a Chandlery deep inside the property. Many items useful to cruisers, including Deep Cycle 6 and 12v6 batteries. Stock not always replaced quickly so when they say a certain battery will come soon, it's not always the reality. Good place to check first.

    12v batteries are plentiful in many automotive and hardware stores, especially those adjacent to the water. For example, two hardware stores (Clint's and Ms. Clares) in Oakridge carry 12v Deep Cycle batteries within less than 6 months of manufacturing date. Expect to pay L1,450 ($77 in 1/08) for those batteries.

    Best source would be at La Ceiba LCH Battery near private hospital 504 440-2991

    Alternator RepairEdit

    Cruisers have used a man and son business in French Harbor. Left from FH Yacht Club up the hill past the Police Station. Store front on right side going down into French Harbor. (said to be 4 or 5 doors down on the west/right-hand side of street).

    Good work, even a report of alternator not fixed but when returned mechanic worked several hours at no extra charge to finally solve problem. Problems for shop are no spares to speak of and no test equipment, so you may have to insure proper repair by returning to your boat and hooking it up. All report good outcome, even with the extra trips.
