Anchorages you have had to yourself for a week
 
I'm on the lookout for those semi-exotic anchorages where I expect to be the only one there. They may be hard to enter, in a tucked away area, or otherwise just been lucky to have no other boat in site for at least a week.

I'll start with two:

26N 33' 25.4"; 77W 51' 44"

24N 07' 39.9"; 74W 29' 37.1"

Pine Island Bay, Antarctica.....well, me and the other 320 souls on board USCGC Glacier. :)

Hard to keep a good anchorage secret for very long....anywhere along the AICW.

"Lollypop"the local name for a sand pit 1/2 mile from our house in FL.

Deep and protected , some claim to have seen FL Panthers at dusk , coming for a drink.

Not a great swim spot , the gators can be 12-14 ft but are rare..

Going East after leaving the Ortona Lock pass River Forrest marina entrance and turn in on the SECOND entrance on left.

A long dug canal (1/2 mile) that ends at Lollypop.

Sand bottom, a watch fob anchor will do.

Ha Ha Ha
You say you are looking for a secluded anchorage where you would be alone for a week. Then you post the location on a very popular forum like this one. Somehow I think you won't be alone for long!

Secluded anchorages that used to exist on the Great Lakes are now occupied by "cruisers". Thanks AGLCA and Active Captain. Love that internet.... Please close this thread...

Not sure this is possible in the Long Island Sound area.

Diver Dave,
What's lat & lon got to do w it?
I don't know that about any anchorage I've ever been in. I'd need to look it up. Is that what you're looking for?

MurrayM 08-19-2017 10:44 AM

An easier question for us would be what anchorages have we had to share with other boats :D

Nomad Willy 08-19-2017 11:32 AM

Murray,
Have you made it to Gillin Harbour on Dewdney Is yet?
The entrance may be choked w kelp late in the summer.
That would be a place to take your kayaks too.

Fond memories of devils hoffmans. Did you jump into the inland blue hole? Did you know at the bottom there is a vent lined with seemed like soggy corn flakes !

Nope, not yet. We've only had our boat for 4 years and have been building experience for places like the Estevan Group. So far on summer holidays we've been to Prince Rupert, Gardner Canal, Campania Island, and this summer it was Pruth Bay on Calvert Island. So next year might be the time to explore the Estevan Group :thumb:

Talking about obscure anchorages; the place out there which has us interested is the uncharted waterway between Dewdney and Barnard Islands which dries at its western end. Anchoring near its western end would allow foot access to the beach at Oswald Bay.

Something to daydream about till next summers vacation...

MurrayM 08-19-2017 11:58 AM

Murray Anchorage on Dewdney's western shore is also a must visit :D

If it were not for Active Captain and other cruising groups there would be a lot less business activity too at marinas and restaurants. More business = more jobs for the locals...


Now, to add to the list -

Great Sale Cay, Bahamas as well as many locations along the west coast of Florida during the summertime.

menzies 08-23-2017 07:21 AM

That reminds me.

Moraine Cay, which has an awesome reef on its Atlantic side.

THat's a great one. And, the nearby Fish Cay is awesome too! I dropped the hook there one time 4 feet away from an in-season lobster. Had that anchorage to ourselves, but only stayed a couple of days.
