    Point Barrow | Sailboat ~ 14 m

    The quinto and Pinto guys (see other review) are not in business anymore. We approached the fisher port and they arranged a place directly to the concrete ( so fishing boats were attaching to us to avoid us changing in the middle of the night) next to the big fish market. Very helpful people. We felt safe under spotlight and camera. If you do not want people walking on your boat at 03 am with the catch of the day and a ghetto blaster or your are spending hours polishing your boat it is not an option but for the sturdy go everywhere sailors who enjoy the “couleur locale” it is safe and doable. I paid 70 eur for 4 days with receipt. Police also helpful with paperwork and no money asked. Reasonable restaurants in town and close to airport.

    We moored outside a big Cat and were the 4th boat on the outside. It is 17 EUR per night, there is no electricity or water but it is safer than the anchorage. We were told that a large boat was robbed one night while 10 people were sleeping onboard so i lock everything and do not leave anything valuable outside. Cafe Sofia is a 25 min walk up to Plateau but the area surrounding the fishing port is dangerous at night and EVERYBODY we met said not to walk there at night, even 4 adult men.

    This mooring is alongside the first big trawler at the entrance of fishing harbour. Pinto and his son Quintino live on these boats. They will be happy to grab your lines for you. They can help with repairs and provide good local information. Contact them on WhatsApp +2389983099. It is really safe there, unlike the rest of the bay where there has been reports of theft. We stay with them on several occasions and would gladly recommend anyone who wants to go to Praia to go there. The Policia Maritima will send you there if they know you want to stay the night.
