There are a handful of moorings in the anchorage at Setting Point. They are first come, first serve and fill up quickly, so you may have to anchor. Best beaches are Loblolly and Cow Wreck, but you will need to get a taxi to either one. Dinghy into the Anegada Reef Hotel and they will arrange a taxi for you. Taking of any marine organism from BVI waters by non-BVIslanders is illegal without a permit. NO taking of lobsters at all, by non-islanders. Diving in Anegada is limited to from the beach or drift diving due to a no anchoring on Horseshoe Reef regulation. Conditions on Horseshoe Reef can be iffy, and is for very experienced divers only.
A good idea would be to ask at the Anegada Reef Hotel if there are any dive guides on island who could take you to the dive sites. Also, does your charter company allow you to go to Anegada? Some won't let you go wthout an experienced Captain or you can go with the company flotilla. First timers (never sailed to Anegada Before) are usually not allowed to go otherwise. Contact your company to find out what they allow.
Hi! We have bareboat chartered 4 times in BVI's, last time in June 2005. In years past you could only flotilla out to Anegada, but some charter cos. will now let you go alone if you are a proficient, experienced crew. We passed muster, and it WAS our most challenging anchorage, but WELL worth it. The island first looked like clouds on the horizon, and then it quickly took shape. Keep all your eyes out for the cans, as the coral heads are everywhere. Go to the Lobster Pot - yum!
TIP: Wherever you go to eat on Anegada, you have to place your food order during the day for that night. Just radio ahead and enjoy! The grilled lobster will melt in your mouth!
Hey it's me agin - just reread my post - it was Potters by Sea where we had lobstah. Fond, blurry memory:)
