Approach and Anchoring

There are two passes through the reef that protect White Bay.

The approach to the west pass is at BV210 after which a course of 030°M leads through the reef opening. This pass is marked with two channel buoys, but as is typical throughout the islands, the red buoy is sun-bleached almost white. Tuck in behind the reef on either side of the pass. The east pass can also be used with a bow watch if seas are flat. Many prefer to enter the marked west entrance and turn east inside of the reef to anchor area. Anchoring is had in 15–25 feet of sand.

Dinghies are beached anywhere along the sand but it is steep and it is wise to sink a dinghy anchor up the sand to stop the tender from heading out to sea sans le Capitán.
