Irish Bay Anchorage Samuel Island – Captain Duncan McCallum

Nestled in the middle of the Gulf Islands, halfway between the Victoria International Marina and Vancouver is a teardrop anchorage that can accommodate all sizes of yachts.   Irish Bay is located on the SW side of Samuel Island and affords good protection from all winds, even a winter’s SE gale.

It’s a great stop when transiting through Active Pass or for smaller yachts that are cruising through Georgeson Passage.   Samuel Island is privately owned, so there is no going ashore, but if you are looking for a secluded anchorage with great holding and lots of swing room, then Irish Bay is perfect.
