Fury Cove, BC
Fury Cove is an outstanding anchorage, with excellent protection and holding in 20-60 feet. The pristine white shell beaches, rugged ocean-pummeled shoreline outside the anchorage, strategic location, and perfect protection make this a popular anchorage. It’s rare to be alone. Many cruisers make this their first or last stop north of Cape Caution.
Mooring Ball: No
Fuel Available: No

If Fury Cove is full, nearby Frypan Bay and Big Frypan Bay are good alternatives.
Slowboat Tips and Activities
Explore the white shell beach. Find the cabin for kayakers.
Approach Fury Cove through aptly-named Breaker Passage. It’s not uncommon to see large swells crashing ashore, particularly during periods of southerly weather. This is nerve-racking, but in typical summer conditions doesn’t present a problem. The entrance to Fury Cove itself appears shallow and narrow, but it’s easier than it looks. We take a mid-channel course and haven’t seen less than 15 feet on the sounder.
We have seen bears, eagles, humpback whales, seals, and much more.
