Yachties’ Yellow Pages

YACHTIES’ YELLOW PAGES Courtesy the Mieco Beach Yacht Club Go to YACHT CLUB | Dress Code | Tipping in Restaurant | Acronym Guide | Listing | Grocery Stores | Hardware Stores | Shipping and receiving stuff | Medical Services | Dinghy Landings | Moorings | Local transportation | Radio communications Historical Note:  Chris and Nancy of the yacht Amulet first prepared the Yachtie’s Yellow Pages in 2007.  We thank them, and the Marshall Islands Visitor’s Authority (MIVA) for reproducing them and helping us with items for the Yachties Welcome Packets. This version of the Yellow Pages was updated in December, 2017 by club publicity director Karen Earnshaw (www.infomarshallislands.com and www.sailingmarshallislands.com). If you have any questions, ask on the morning Majuro Cruiser’s Net VHF 71 at 0730 or on VH 6.224 at 07:45. The Marshall Islands Journal is a good source of local current events and information. DRESS: Dress in the Marshall Islands is conservative; knee-length shorts or skirts, sleeveless tops OK. Spaghetti-strap or strapless tops are frowned upon. The men prefer long pants, but you may wear shorts. TIPPING IN RESTAURANTS: Tipping is not expected in truly local establishments but in resorts and better restaurants, up to 10% is not unreasonable for good service. ACRONYM GUIDE: Marshallese love to use acronyms. Taxi drivers will understand where to go when you use them. The following are some you should familiarize yourself with: Banks: BOG       Bank of Guam BOMI     Bank of the Marshall Islands Restaurants: MIR        Marshall Islands Resort Hotel (series of 3-story white buildings with turquoise roofs on south side of...
