Disk Cove: A great anchorage

Disc Cove

Disc Cove

18th June

After 2 days of rain it was nice to get going again. In clearing weather and light winds we motored south to Disk Cove on small Disk Island. The opening into the cove is 6 meters deep at low tide and only about 12 meters wide.

Approaching the super narrow entrance to Disk Cove, I found myself on the bow looking out for rocks. I found it hard to concentrate on the water with the trees and steep rocks passing us by with about 2-meter spare between us! The bay was quite something – perfectly secluded. Clearly a hiking bay also with promising bear potential on top (hopefully not while we are hiking).

We had a nice hike to a low knoll for a good view of Scolamanzi at anchor and the surrounding mountains. We took the dinghy to circumnavigate the island. What a great trip. Coming back to the cove we thought of taking a short cut through the “false” entrance which was at that stage low tide and was registering 0 meters under the dinghy. We lifted the engine and rowed through. Only just made it.

By now we have learned to hike and do our excursions with our gauze mozzie nets on. These bites itch for days and leave a red welt.
