Name: The Anchor
Depth: 70ft (21 m)
The Anchor is an extremely large wooden stock anchor from an unknown vessel. This site is a shore dive and can be accessed at "The Gap" - the north end of Highway # 6 between the church and Bruce Anchor Cruises. Note that for this site, divers must park along the street -turn right as though you are going to the ferry- parking is on the north side of the road. Entry for this site is off of the rocks at the ‘Gap’ & care must be taken as the tour boats come & go from the dock on your right. As this is a shared site with tour boats, extreme caution is necessary. Always tow a flag, stay close to it & if there is a boat at the dock never go under it. If you are still having trouble locating the anchor, here is a surface reference. The anchor is immediately in front of the 7th building east of The Gap. This is a brown cottage with yellow trim. The anchor is about 75 feet off shore in 60 -70 feet of water at the edge of the rock and silt.
