The anchorages on St John:
Funghi Passage is the passage between Whistling Cay and Mary Point. It is located on the island of St John and part of the United States Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea. The area is known for its calm waters regardless of strong tides. North of Funghi Passage and opposite Mary Point, is Great Thatch Island that belongs to the British Virgin Islands. The channel between Mary Point and Great Thatch Island is called The Narrows and is 0.3 miles wide.
Despite its narrow size, this is a calm and pleasant channel. Once you reach The Narrows there is usually good wind and current to take you E.
This is not a mooring spot. No provisioning facilities nearby.
If you are around the Maho Bay and Francis Bay area, you can navigate towards Funghi Passage and travel E towards Leinster Bay. This is not a mooring point but offers beautiful sights of the bays around and the charming coastline of St John. Best to stay overnight in Francis Bay that is the most protected on the northern side of the island. Great for snorkelling and discovering the rich marine life and underwater treasures on offer in St John.
