There are so many favorite anchorages. Big Major is a good one. Everybody gets a kick out of the swimming pigs.

Although I don't anchor inside Honeymoon Harbor, because it gets crowded. We do dinghy over, and enjoy the place. Here is a couple I convinced to pose for me.

When they are hungry which is 50% of the time. They will swim out to meet the dink, and then follow you in. They love fresh water from a bottle too......lololol

Duck Harbor

Duck Harbor on Maine's Isle Au Haut is one of our favorites. It gives meaning to the term "gunkhole".

Johor River, Malaysia

Probably not my favorite place but it holds a special place for me. First anchoring out trip for Relax Lah! and first international trip as Skipper (Singapore to Malaysia).

Johor River - 2008. We went up the Johor River to a fish farm. The big floating farm, hosts people for seafood dinners, parties and sleep overs. About 9 boats anchored out and enjoyed dinner on the farm. Most slept on their boats after too much drinking and karaoke.

Photo 1 - The early arrivals about 6 PM on the farm.
Photo 2 - The next morning Relax Lah! still there!

Acoustic…..Duck Harbor in Maine looks very similar to the San Juan and Gulf Islands near Seattle and Vancouver. I love the golden arbutus trees as the sun goes down. Is it the same there?


Again in the Philippines…… is NW corner of Tablas Island where limestone rocks carved by Typhoons make wonderful umbrellas if you want to snorkel in the shade and numerous grottos are accessible only by small boat.

First shot is looking out from the beach as Rock-Man keeps watch, second is inside a small grotto, that we discovered the day before (3rd Photo).

This area is a fair weather anchorage only, very deep with steep-to inclines right to the beach. Many coral outcrops makes the going slow.

4th Photo shows that you need to back yourself in between them and beach tie the stern in order to keep your anchor pulling uphill. Isolated spot with fresh drinking coconuts on the beach makes it all worthwhile and in the transition period (April/May) you can stay there for days and explore the grottoes and subterranean caves .

This whole area has a cottage marble industry and in the adjacent island of Romblon you can find some nice work

I've got to say it is Tarpon Bay, a fresh water lake 14 to 16 miles up inside of the Everglades here in Florida.
Almost heaven!

The first one is of the anchorage at the Benjamin Islands in the North Channel of Lake Huron (Believe the "calm before the storm" adage). The 2nd is of a sunset looking out of the "Gun Barrel" from the harbour at the Bustard Islands in Georgian Bay.

I still feel that the inside passages from Vancouver to Seaward in Alaska has some of the most beautiful cruising scenery in the world.

Would love to see some NZ South Island cruising photos to compare.
