Indicative Anchoring Position
35° 00.3’S 136° 11.1’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.
Whalers Bay is a magnificent anchorage with a long white beach, soaring cliffs up to 200 metres high, and excellent holding in deep sand. Although the usual anchoring position is at the south-eastern end near Horny Point, it is possible to anchor anywhere along this long beach if the wind is suitable.
Shore access is easy anywhere, and long beach walks are very worthwhile.
