    Good anchorage at 4 to 6m mostly sandy bottom, little swell, but can be quite crowded here. Dinghy Dock in Nelson Dockyard on the left behind the large yachts. Check in at Nelson Dockyard possible. Fee for clearing in, sailing permit, national park fee, anchor, etc. for 10m and 2 people total 75 US $. Anchoring fee per additional day for 10m and 2 people 9 US $. Plenty of bars and restaurants in English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor. A well-stocked supermarket between English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor, with its own dinghy dock and pretty good free WiFi.

    Guter Ankerplatz auf 4 bis 6m meist Sandgrund, wenig Schwell, kann aber recht überfüllt sein hier. Dinghy Dock in Nelson Dockyard auf der linken Seite hinter den großen Yachten. Einklarieren im Nelson Dockyard möglich. Gebühr für Einklarieren, Sailing Permit, Nationalparkgebühr, Anker etc. für 10m und 2 Personen gesamt 75 US$. Ankergebühr pro weiterem Tag für 10m und 2 Personen 9 US$. Zahlreiche Bars und Restaurants im English Harbor und Falmouth Harbor. Ein gut sortierter Supermarkt zwischen English Harbor und Falmouth Harbor, mit eigenem Dinghy Dock und recht gutem freien WiFi.

    Very nice mooring, holds well in the sand, accesses clearance formalities, laundry service, Wi-Fi bars, restaurant. Very nice hike above to Shirley Heights access by Galleon beach, small landing stage, road then path to the right, it goes up. Great view. Return by hike south slope. Cactus, cliffs. Gorgeous!

    Très joli mouillage, tient bien dans du sable, accède en annexe aux formalités de clearance, service de laundry, Wi-Fi bars, resto. Très belle rando au-dessus à Shirley Heights accès par la plage Galleon, petit débarcadère, route puis chemin à droite, ça monte. Superbe vue. Retour par rando versant sud. Cactus, falaises. Splendide!

    Good anchorage of sand, beach with bars and good visibility on the water, good excursions to the Marinas in dingui, expensive supermarkets. Normal drinks, pleasant walks through the nearby marinas, good anchorages also north to dive. We anchor with a catamaran of 14 meters, very close to the beach in Galeon Bay.

    Buen fondeo de Arena ,playa con bares y buena visibilidad en el agua , buenas excursiones a las Marinas en dingui, supermercados carisimos.Las copas normal , paseos agradables por las marinas cercanas , buenos fondeos tambien al norte para bucear . Fondeamos con un catamarán de 14 metros ,muy cerca de la playa en Galeon Bay.
