Maho Bay is a great anchorage located on the north shore of St John. It is part of the Virgin Islands National Park that was established in 1956. There are numerous mooring buoys that hold yachts up to 60 feet in length, and there are now four larger mooring buoys that can take yachts up to 100 feet.
This anchorage is picture perfect and is often voted in the top 100 beaches of the world. It has a white sandy crescent shaped beach lined with palm trees. The waters that lap the shore are crystal clear and turquoise in colour and you often see baby sea Turtles and small Southern Sting Rays swimming in these protected waters. The snorkeling from the beach is great! Swim out along the north wall and see Queen Angle Fish, Turtles, Squirrel Fish, Yellow Tail Snapper & multi-colour Christmas Tree Worms.
Pacific Wave normally stops off at this quiet anchorage for the first night of your charter when you start your cruise in St Thomas USVI. This way you can relax and unpack, enjoy a walk on this beautiful sandy beach, and enjoy excellent snorkeling. What a great way to unwind and start your cruise aboard your luxury charter yacht SY Pacific Wave.
