    Good anchorage. Good holding on sand and mud. Really quiet, but in the daytime some jetski's and speedboat. Just go beyond all the moored boats, and there you will have all the space you need. Just keep some kind of space for boats that will go to San Fernando.

    Anchorage is not so easy to navigate due to strong flood tides and many, many boats moored in a maze pattern. Factor in winds, shallows and swing room, it is difficult to find a position to anchor. Winds kicked up once anchored and throughout the evening and overnight, gusting to over 40 kts. We held firm on our anchor but would have liked more chain out - not possible without swinging into moored boats. Wind over tide creates interesting conditions with lots of riding on your anchor. It would be nigh impossible to anchor at night or with strong winds. Protection has been suggested all round but not from the south. Perhaps when winds are less than 20knts, anything above and you still have a great deal of chop.
