Rescue Bay, BC
Rescue Bay is a secure, spacious, and well-protected anchorage. Holding is good in 40-90 feet, with the shallowest anchorage along the western and southern shore. Be sure to avoid the drying shoal in the southeast corner of the bay.
On several occasions we’ve been able to buy fresh prawns from fishermen anchored here.
For vessels thinking about transiting Jackson Passage, anchoring in Rescue Bay allows for easy reconnoitering by dinghy.

Explore Jackson Narrows by dinghy or kayak.
Avoid the drying shoal in the southeast corner of the bay.
A large group of seals hang out in the cove near the entrance, and we’ve seen Pacific white-sided dolphins and Dall’s porpoises just outside the bay.
