You will sometimes find vessels anchored here in settled weather: there is good holding and plenty of water (20' off the beach and you're in 6'), but this is a working—if unmarked—channel. The sea swell is constant, even if minimal. Of greater concern, though, is the full speed traffic passing by throughout the day. This is primarily sports fishers, but also larger vessels preferring to head directly south out of Bimini Channel rather than taking the marked channel west before turning south. This includes the 30' - 40' SAFE boat the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) operates. Be prepared for significant wakes. The trade-off for being here rather than one of anchorages in the north end of Bimini Channel is the scenery. Rather than being in an active construction zone, you're surrounded by crystal clear water over a white sand bottom, next to a lovely beach, with unobstructed sunsets. Alice Town is a short dinghy ride away and after the sun sets fully, there is little, if any, boat traffic.
