Alston Cove

Laredo Inlet is a beautiful place to explore. It is a bit off the usual north-south cruising route, accessed by the scenic Meyers Passage. Wildlife viewing, fishing, and great scenery, the area offers enough for a few days of exploration.

If one is to spend a few days, then a couple good anchorages are needed, and there are a few to choose from… Bay of Plenty, Fifer Cove and Alston Cove are all good choices.

The chart shows a three fathom bar at the entrance. It may be a bit shallower, both in and out our depth guage showed just over twenty feet of water under the Nordic Quest’s keel on a ten foot high tide. Perhaps we just missed the deeper channel? Otherwise entry is easy.

Anchor in forty to fifty feet of water at the rear of the cove off the alluvial fan of Blee creek.
