Anchoring & Moorings

The waters of the Whitsundays are very tidal. Correct anchoring in these tidal waters is vital to ensure a good night’s sleep.

There is nothing worse than anchoring improperly and waking up in the middle of a dark night with your boat adrift or resting on top of a reef.

The anchor winch machinery is dangerous and should not be used by children or inexperienced operators. It is the skipper’s responsibility to ensure the operator is fully versed with its use.

Part of your pre-charter briefing will include demonstrating correct anchoring and mooring procedures.
