Octopus Islands Anchorage Desolation Sound
Octopus Islands Marine Park. This is a beautiful popular anchorage and exploration area, wonderfully protected. You can enter from Waiatt Bay, but the usual entry is by a narrow channel from the north. Anchor in any of several coves and run a stern-tie to shore.
At the end of the channel as you enter from the north, a rock, clearly shown on Plans Chart 3537, obstructs part of the entry to the first cove on the right. This rock is easily seen as a white smear under the water. You’ll be going slowly anyway; watch for it and you’ll have no trouble.
