Prince Edward Bay offers a number of useful passage anchorages for vessels transiting between the St Lawrence River and Lake Erie. The pilot recommends anchoring between Waupooos and Waupoos Island but in settled weather it is not necessary to go this far in to find shelter.
The open bay between Morrison Point and Van Dousens point offers good shelter from all but south easterlies and has excellent holding in 4-5m of water. Alternatively South Bay and Half Moon Bay also offer good shelter from the prevailing winds and are used by local yachts.
Long Point Harbour at the south eastern corner of Prince Edward Bay is too shoal and confined for the average yacht.
