Joe’s Bay, BC

Joe’s Bay, also known as Turtle Bay, is the bay formed by Turtle Island, Dodd Island, and Willis Island. This is a bomb-proof anchorage, with complete protection from all weather and seas. We’ve waited out gales here, and even when the wind blows the water remains calm. Enter through the channel north or south of Walsh Island and anchor anywhere in the bay in 20-50 feet with excellent holding.

Kayakers frequent the area and a kayak camp is sometimes set up on Dodd Island. Occasionally small tour boats zoom through the anchorage throwing a wake.
