Indicative Anchoring Position

35° 22.2’S   138° 23.2’E

Note.    Indicative anchoring positions are for reference only and should not be used as waypoints.  The best position for anchoring depends on many factors including vessel draft, tide, and forecast wind.

This is a very small bay well protected from the south by a high headland. The eastern side of the bay has a sandy bottom and the holding is good. The western side has a rocky bottom and anchoring is not recommended.  The bay is occasionally subject to severe gully winds.

It is located about halfway between Outer Harbor and Kangaroo Island, and is therefore a useful overnight stop There is often a significant shore break, so a dinghy landing can be difficult.
