Re: Detailed anchorage (not mooring) map-BVI

There is another side to mooring balls: in a dense boat population area like the BVI moorings help to prevent further degradation of the bottom (help protect coral). Taking a mooring when one is available is an environmentally responsible thing to do. That said, I have found places to anchor in the BVI, sometimes with the whole anchorage to myself. Such places can be a bit rolly though...
