DescriptionIn Cape May Harbor, you can drop anchor east or west of the Coast Guard Station. Make sure to stay 500 yards from the facility. In the harbor you will find good holding in thick mud.

This was always a great anchorage, but I had a serious issue a few years ago. A pipe laying barge apparently left a large, metal sewage pipe, about five feet long, on the bottom. My anchor got tangled up in it with a very bad result. I hope the area has now been cleared of such debris. Be alert to this possible danger.
