When coming up to the entrance of Luperon which is correctly marked with channel marker buoys, once inside the bay then please feel free to call "Safe Yachts" on Ch 68 so we can assist you with moving around the shallow spots in the anchorage to find you a good anchor spot, pick-up a mooring or getting you onto the Puerto Blanco Marina dock and then we can asssist you with check-in proceedures at no cost.
*Anchoring in the bay: Once you are settled down and you decide to move again, please note that there are some shallow spots (see Bruce van Sant’s map above) but mostly 12–22ft and it often runs deeper by the mangroves. The bay has a 2.5ft tidal change twice a day. If you want to re-anchor then remember, in the morning the boats point West towards the government dock and they may lie over their anchors therefore set your anchor to the East trade winds with a scope that includes the height of your bow over the water. Lay the anchor on the bottom, its shank pointing West and don’t move otherwise it may plug up. Then layout a scope of 10:1 due West. Back down on it with successively stronger pulls until you get up to half your HP, then come back to 5:1 scope for chain and 7:1 for rode and then change your watch to EST + 1 hour.
