He's on an open-ended cruise Minne. I imagine he wants to know if there's places where he can dive on his boat along the way.

Well that's pretty cool. I'm trying to think of how great it would be to think I might take the next several weeks or months, just to get somewhere to clean my hull !

I just pray the diver will show up on time on Saturday morning, so I can get out of the harbor and not screw up my weekend !!

Got it now. Which islands that don't currently have enough visibility, but up north might? I think X needs to focus on getting over the need for great viz.

Re: Clear water anchorages on the east coast USA?

There are very few places where you can't get in the water and clean your bottom with enough visibility to see what you are cleaning. But other than the Outer Banks and south Florida. none of the ICW is going to be very clear. Once you are into New England, your back in clear water. If you clean the bottom before you begin and only sit for short periods, the bottom is going to stay pretty clean. Chuck

Thanks to those who actually answered my question.

Cleaned er good in Abacos just before leaving last week.

Might try the Beaufort spot if I have the time on the way up.

Dove on er last summer in Northport LI, surprised by how silty it was.

Any places on the south side of Cape Cod that would fit my requirements?

Re: Clear water anchorages on the east coast USA?

I can tell you that very few is any places in the mid-atlantic will fit your description. Green is the best way to describe the water here, unless you want to dive on your boat in the open ocean

Re: Clear water anchorages on the east coast USA?

xort, in the northeast there is LOTS of run-off from the rivers and the coast. Lots of fertilizer making lots of plankton blooms, too. Visibility may run from 4-40' but calling it "good"...we natives tend to call six foot visibility "good" up here. Ain't gonna be like Abacos.

You will want a double watch cap or wet suit hood on your head, so it doesn't hurt when you keep banging it against the hull. And at that point, six foot vis is about four feet more than you need. (G)
