S through E to NE
West Bay anchorage is in about 10 metres on the western side of Wedge Island and frequented by cray boats.
When approaching from the north be aware of West Rock. There is a deep passage about ¼ mile wide between the NW corner of the island and West Rock. Although it may at times look intimidating, it is safe water right through.
Keep a weather eye out for any change of wind and be ready to leave the moment it comes in from the west as the anchorage could become very dangerous.
