Anchorage Areas

An anchorage area is a place where boats and ships can safely drop anchor. These areas are created in navigable waterways when ships and vessels require them for safe and responsible navigation. A variety of designations refer to types of anchorage areas or restrictions, or even to alerts of potential dangers within an area. Every boater and captain should be aware of the various types of areas. These data are intended for coastal and ocean planning. Not for navigation.
