Update Summer 2019

These notes were reviewed in July 2019. Thanks to Ningaloo who has just been there there is no need for any changes; I've loaded up this years charts of the bay and replaced the Google link top right
Quiet and scenic

On our visit the first 10m of the pontoon was in use by the local fishing charter boats, however we got alongside (ferry gliding against the strong tide) with the help of the charter skipper who took our lines. With 2m draft we also anchored outside for an hour to wait for sufficient rise of tide. Glad we did so. Never less than 3.5m over the bar but only 2.7m on the final loop before the pier.
Still £15 a night. We didn't take electric but this is available by token.
Pay at the pub.
Beautiful quiet spot.
