    Somewhere most boats sail past, maybe due the formidable islands and reefs to the east and south of the lighthouse? Check the charts and observe the red danger quadrants of the Seal Rocks Light. Otherwise, giving the former a wide berth, the anchorage off Boat Beach is easy to approach. Boat Beach Seal Rocks is perfect anchorage in southerly conditions. It is one of the last operating - though struggling due marine park restrictions - fishing villages where boats are launched off the sand beach. The small convenience store and Post Office sells most of the basics including bread milk and ice. Adjacent is a public phone. Mobile reception at Seals is erratic to say the least. Water can be scarce due the local reliance on tanks. The walk to the lighthouse is highly recommended. The beach to the west can have a nice little surf. Yachts have been dragged to the beach in "Black" Northeast winds. The anchorage is very exposed to northerly swells and winds. Excellent for a relax in winter months when the weather is moderate from the west to the south.
