Snow Island, Quahog Bay, Maine

There are many beautiful anchorages in Maine that would make anyone's list of favorites. But my all time favorite is Snow Island, Quahog Bay in East Harpswell, Maine.

You are surrounded by Osprey nests and fishing Ospreys. mussels are plentiful at low tide, lobstermen will sell you their catch at the dock price right at your transom, .....

Wineglass Bay, in Tasmania, the southern island state across Bass Strait (with its formidable rough sea reputation) is open to the ocean.
Andy,I walked in there too, on a rest day during a cycle ride from Launceston to Hobart. Beautiful, unspoilt, remote, wildlife, pristine Tassie. We visited Maria Island too.
I`d love to anchor in Wineglass Bay. We all would. Tough getting there though.

Wineglass was where my hydraulic pump bearing failed after a perfect passage across Bass Strait from Eden last February.
Luckily there were other boats around to give us a hand getting the 80lb anchor and 1/2" chain back on board before a run under emergency tiller to Triabunna for repairs.
Relying on one hydraulic pump for anchor, steering and davits when cruising in remote areas is still a topic for lively discussion on board.

I was going to say that Von Donop Inlet (Cortes Island, Desolation Sound) was my favourite, but every cove has its charm, and every cruise brings a new favourite spot for the the summer. But for now, this is Von Donop Inlet.

Smuggler Cove, Sunshine Coast, BC is pretty special even in summer when you don't have it to yourself.
