Description

Middle of what? No matter, Middle Anchorage is not a suitable anchorage. True, divers go in here as do small fishing boats, but the area can fill with kelp, has a rocky bottom and waves break in the  southeast corner. It is immediately adjacent to one of the best anchorages on Santa Cruz – Yellowbanks.
