Stonehaven Anchorage
Kayaking around Anchor Point with yachts moored in South Stonehaven in the background (Hook Island)

Description The Southern Half of Stonehaven: Stonehaven requires particular vigilance because of the extensive fringing reefs of Langford, Black and Hayman Islands. Use extreme caution when navigating this area! This is a motor only area! Anchoring is possible outside the moorings although deep, just of Anchor Point you will find a depth of 8-10 meters, the holding is good although a little exposed to -Bullets- in fresh South-East winds.
