Our to 5 St. John Anchorages are:

Maho Bay

This is probally the best protected mooring field on St. John . You will be very well protected if you tuck into either bay. You are good in here unless the wind is out of the south.

This picture was taken arounf 7 am. Just as the sun was starting to come over the mountain. It's dead quite most mornings. It is also the best time to see Sea Turtles. I saw 3 that morning all out for an early moring sea grass feeding.


Trunk Bay

This is probally the most famous spot in St. John. With good reason to. The beach is huge. It's perfect white sand. The water it crystal clear and turquoise. Their is also a snorkeling trail for amature snorkelers.


For cruisers its still a great spot. They dinghy lane forces you to the very end of the beach. That is totally fine with me because the tourists don't make it that far down the beach. Your dinghy willl be left alone and you will have your own private patch of sand.



Hawksnest Bay

This was my favorite beach in St. John. Its home to Oppenheimer beach. The palmtrees that line this beach are massive. They provide great shade throughout the day. It also tends to be alot less crowded then the beach to the left. They are seperated by a little rocky out crop. This keeps the land tourists of this beach for some reason.


Lind Point

This is the closest mooring location to Cruz Bay. I always come here and grab a ball first thing when I enter St. John from the BVI's. It is a short dinghy ride into Cruz Bay to clear in.


The beach their is your typical St. John beach. Perfection in every sense of the word. As with every mooring field in St. john their is a dinghy alley to the right of the beach.


Coral Bay

This is by far the biggest bay on St. John. It is a few miles deep. It is also one of the only spots on St. John where you can drop anchor. On the inner left hand side is Johnson bay. It is filled with friendly locals who live out their.


If you plan to spend any time long term in St. John on a boat this is the place to do it. You are required to get a mooring permit throught the feds. No one seems to do it but it has lead to some nasty encounters in the past. Just pony up the $100 and avoid the confrontation.
