Our to 5 Antigua BVI Anchorages are:

Bitter End Yacht Club

One of my favorite places to go in the BVI. It's more of a mooring field then an anchorage. Their are places to anchor as you enter the bay on the left, but its tight. Their isn't any reason not to cough up the $30 for a mooring ball.

.

The bay is pretty wide open and sustptable to most wind directions. The surrounding mountains do provide decent protection but the water is deep so anchoring in wind could be a little dicey.


Cooper Island

This is an awesome spot. It is totally protected from the prevailing wind and swell. It can be blowing 25 knots out in the bay and the second you make the turn to tuck in behind the island the wind drops to 5.


The lack of wind behind their can cause boats to move in all diffrent directions. You could find yourself only feet from another boat. That's why a 50ft boat lenght restriction is placed on the mooring balls. Anything bigger is welcomed to anchor further offshore. It's deep out their but if your over 50 you probally have enough chain anyway.


Normans Island

Same thing as Cooper island. It is possible to drop anchor next to Willy T's but their isn't much room and it can get shallow quick. I only recommend catamarans over 50ft do this.


The bay is very protected and surrounded by mountains on all sides. The further up the bay you go the less wind you will have. It's a trade off based on how close you want to be to Willy T's. If your tastes are a little more refined tie up to the dinghy dock at the end of the bay and hit one of the two beach bars. There quite nice.


Trellis Bay

This spot has decent protection and anchoring isn't allowed. Although that didn't seem to stop a couple boat from doing so while I was their. Their is a beach bar with good wi-fi their and the beach is beautiful. It even has a little pink hugh in the setting light.


Mongoose is the beach bar in the bay and their seems to be another place on a rock in the bay but I never made it over there. Mongoose has a dinghy dock and a water trampolene; which is always fun after a few drinks. It's off the weekly charter route if you want a little more piece and quiet.


Great Harbour (Jost)

This is more then likely where you will end up if you are trying to go to the Soggy Dollar in White Bay. The entrance to White bay is VERY narrow and between two reefs. Once you get through the bay is totally packed with catamarans. You have to be a very good captain to try and anchor here.


Take the stress out of your life and just grab a mooring ball here. Your a short walk from Foxy's anyway. You can also clear into this bay as it is a customs port. They were extremly friendly but very through in their job. Have everything in order.

BVI Anchorages

Their only a couple places to anchor. Almost every bay has mooring balls. Very cruiser friendly
