Entry to Calabash
For those cruising the NW Caribbean who find themselves in Roatán, Calabash Bight is a quiet place to anchor and rest. It also happens to be the best hurricane hole on the island! Here's some guidance on navigating the entrance to Calabash Bight::
16 23.430 N 86 20.066 W Approach Outside (initial)
16 23.521 N 86 20.131 W Approx Red marker buoy (leave to starboard)
Lay a course of 320 Deg. Magnetic and you will spot the next marker (Red) and stay in good water on this course.
16 23.743 N 86 20.295 W Approx next to red inner buoy (also leave to starboard but hug close, this marks a cut through a coral patch and is about a 60 foot wide channel 10 to 12 feet deep)
16 23.893 N 86 20.374 W One of the anchorage spots. Once inside you can anchor in several locations up and down the bight by eyeball navigation as water is clear enough to see bottom in shoal areas.
Turtlegrass: 16.24.02 N 86.20.22 W Look for the point on the West side that is half way up in the bight.
