Description

This harbour, surrounded by high hills with a narrow entrance (100 feet) and deep is considered a good hurricane hole. Holding is excellent in thick clay. Anchor and secure your boat in the mangroves.

History: Conflicting reports on the number of boats sheltered here during hurricane Ivan (2004) but overall this is a recommended hurricane hole.

  • over 100 boats secured in the mangroves survived the storm; the harbour sustained damages.
  • only two of the more than 40 boats in Egmont sank (at least one after being struck by a large boat which dragged); about 15 were grounded.

Note about hurricane holes:

The information provided here is based on experience and input from members of our community. The general consensus is that hurricane holes are not suitable for direct strikes or category 4 or 5 storms. Your best hurricane plan is to be out of its path. If you must weather a hurricane or storm YOU must talk to your vessel insurance company to confirm if YOUR vessel insurance covers YOUR hurricane plan at this location.
