Broken Group Anchorages

The Broken Group extends from the wind-and-wave-lashed outer islands to peaceful islands deep inside Barkley Sound.  The Broken Group is part of the Pacific Rim National Park, to be preserved in its natural state in perpetuity.  For many Northwest boaters, a holiday spent in the Broken Group is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.

Boats visiting the Broken Group will find dozens of little nooks and bights to put the hook down, depending on weather and the mood on the board.  Don Watmough, Don Douglass, and the Yeadon-Joneses all describe a number of them in their guides.   The major anchorages are Effingham Bay, Turtle Bay and nettle Island.
