1 mile from Chatham island, Port Blair
Use this anchorage for clearance and visiting Port Blair. Approach from the south and anchor in 8-14 metres with good holding and excellent protection. The bank comes up very quickly further north.
From here you need to run your dinghy across to Chatham Island to go ashore. Do not swim here there are a number of resident crocodiles in the harbour – one of which sunbathes daily on the pontoons of the coastguard jetty.
