5 miles from Laccam Harbour
The west side of Henry Lawrence Island provides a well protected anchorage in strong northeasterlies. Kwangtung Strait is entirely navigable with a deep water channel throughout. Anchor in 15-20 metres on a sandy bottom anywhere along the eastern side of the straight. Good holding and very well protected. Strong currents.
The fringing mangroves are interesting to explore by dinghy or kayak with many crabs, monitor lizards, sea eagles and the occasional dugong. The northern side of the strait in the narrows has an interesting drift dive but visibility is poor.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
