Entrance fee around 5 Usd with a free leaflet in your language.

Before entering the Dockyard are many shops selling the perpetual souvenirs and T shirts but also a convenient post office that we used to stamp and send our free St Vincent postcards available in all the Vincentian tourism information offices!
