Note. The marina entrance coordinates are provided for reference only and should not be used as a waypoint.
Arno Bay is a small regional town about 23 miles from Cowell. Despite the name there really is no bay here, and it would be of little interest to cruising yachts without the marina. The area has many fish farms, and the marina is used daily by the associated work vessels.
However, even the marina must be used with caution because the entrance is shallow and cannot be used by a typical keelboat without a favourable tide. The bottom of the channel is rocky, making the occasional bounce even more alarming! Rocks exist to the east and north of the marina entrance.
The township is an easy walk from the marina, and has a general store, a hotel and a caravan park. Showers are available for a fee at the caravan park.
